Way to go Canada!!
Happy Sunday Everyone!!
Love & Hugs
Slim in 6 is the best thing
since sliced bread...try it...it really works
Tony Horton, Shaun T and Brett Hoebel...these guys are the infomercial Fitness Gurus. Great programs, but they really kick your butt and you gotta make sure you have a towel and some absorbine junior.
If you want quick results, any of these programs will work...but you really gotta work...they are not for sissies!!
What is your favorite way to get fit?
Have some fun today, turn on some music, dance like no one is looking, pop in a DVD, burn calories and feel great!!
Unfortunately, the (in some people's minds) Gold medal favorite were crushed in the Men's Olympic Quarterfinal game by the Canadians. I don't watch much Hockey these days, but this was a spectacular game...so much excitement right out of the gate and then you just hung on because you knew anything could happen. With a score of 7 - 3, I'd say the winner was clear.
The beautiful intoxicating scent of the Camellia Rose
Not usually a Carnation fan....but
I mean...look at this...gorgeous

This recipe, excerpted from the cookbook Dessert Express, is an elegant take on the ice cream soda, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a handful of raspberries floating in a glass of champagne.
1 cup fresh raspberries, picked over
1 pint vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
1/4 cup framboise or other raspberry eau de vie
2 cups chilled dry champagne or sparkling wine
Put 2 Tbs. of the raspberries in the bottom of each of 4 tall glasses. Top with a 1/4-cup scoop of ice cream. Drizzle 1 Tbs. framboise into each glass, then top with another 2 Tbs. of raspberries an danother 1/4-cup scoop of ice cream. Pour 1/2 cup of champagne into each glass. Serve immediately with a straw and a long-handled spoon.
and Red Velvet Cupcakes of course
Red velvet cupcakes: Follow the recipe above, making a half-batch of the batter (unless you have two 12-cup muffin tins, in which case you can make a full-size batch) and decreasing the baking powder to 1 tsp. Bake until the cupcakes are domes and resist slight pressure, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool completely before frosting with a half batch of the cream cheese frosting.

This is a beautiful interpretation of the classic Olympic torch
This torch is quite contemporary
and has been on a long journey
across the country with many, many
Canadians having the once in a lifetime opportunity
to run with the torch when
it travelled through their town
A few blingy silver goodies that make me smile
This fabulous little purse was
my Mother's and I know she used to
use it when they would go out
dancing back in the day...can you just picture it...
the hair all rolled up, the lovely dress,
the great shoes, stockings with the line
and this sequined number holding
her lipstick and compact.
A little Benny Goodman playing the tunes.
Those were the days!
This is the belt that I wear when
I have a special evening planned that does not call for a dress,
lots of movement, maybe work....anyway
this sparkly goodie will elevate
any pair of pants to make you shine
or you can just drape it over
a loose blouse or skirt.
Have fun with it, I do!!
I wear this pretty heart on my lapel
Just in time for Valentine's Day
Love these pretty charms
Deb has tons to see, so go and shop online or visit in person.
The second chapter of Silver Sunday begins next Sunday and it occurs on the second Sunday of every month.....so keep your eyes peeled so you can enjoy this Silver treat for a long time. Don't forget to visit with Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal to see lots of Silver Sparkle.
Keep warm all of you that have been blanketed with more snow than you love and I hope that the temps cool down a bit for Vancouver so that the Winter Olympics will be a smash hit.
Happy Sunday :)
