Today is my niece Ella's birthday!  My sister had a cookout with family to celebrate!

I can't believe Ella is six years old, boy does time fly.  Here are some photos from her party.

Today I was craving for a homemade dessert.  I love fruit desserts in the summer especially if it is blueberry cobbler which is one of my favorites. 

http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/blueberry-cobbler.  Here is the recipe, I found it on food and wine site.  So simple and easy to make.

Blueberries with the sugar and flour added

Adding lemon zest and Kirsch

Placing mixture into baking dish

Making the dough mixture for the top of cobbler

 Now dig in!  Excuse the calories - You have to indulge once in awhile.  I served it warm with homemade vanilla ice cream......

Thought I would share these watercolor paintings to celebrate Bastille Day. My friend Martine showed these water color paintings to me that her mother painted in Paris when she was only 16 years old.  Just think they are so adorable, don't you?  I especially love the expressions in the paintings.

Happy Friday!  I was in a decorating mood today, so I decided to redecorate one of my kitchen counters.  I just wanted to change it a little for summer.

 My scale is from Luckett's (Miss Mustard Seed's booth), hydrangeas from my garden in a white enamel pitcher.  Do you like my sign in photo?

I like changing the chalkboard with different words

Sunflower Girl Figurine by Lori Mitchell

I have a collection of Lori Mitchell figurines.  Don't you just love the one above?  My sister, Tara bought it for me since she knows that sunflowers are my favorite.  Well it's time for a break now since it is so hot and humid here!  I think I will have a glass of cold lemonade!  Sounds great!

My next post be will before and after photos of my hall bathroom.  I am repainting and redecorating it.

Have a great weekend!
