French sugar with lavender...and cinnamon pigtails!

this morning,  French sugar with lavender is on the farm table.

Holland and her Mama found it at the Jardin du Soleil!

they went there with Holland's Grandma Jonna.  
she took this cute photograph of Holland trekking through the
lavender fields and posted on facebook.

{it's a perfect image of French bread sugar and family!}

back to Camp... {surfs up!}

i found Megan over a year ago
when i was paging through magazine RUE.
her process of design is fun to watch!

i don't know about you, but HGTV and the lot
on  "on demand" have become incredibly boring to me.

(blog land is where it's happening!)

i always keep an eye on my blog roll
for the next episode of  Meagan Camp. 

(when you can't jump in the car and drive twenty ~ five
miles ( at 4.00 per gallon) for your "Anthro" fix..)

...she'll  pop up on my side bar with new pics of her shop...

above, is an image from her blog last March featuring telesca ready for Spring.

i fell for her little vintage Hudson Valley fruit baskets and bought  a

few for our Spring chandie.

~ * ~

this morning, she posted her images of  telesca ~ Summer.

grab a board! catch a wave, and go visit!

a healthy reminder... {week two}

week two... pile fresh fruit on top of your 
toast, oatmeal, bagel, Greek yogurt...

.:: source ::.
and salad. i drizzle raspberry vinaigrette 
or strawberry balsamic on mine. 

on the fly...Wendy's berry almond
chicken salad is yummy! 

how about  a Monday mini microderm ?

mix 3 parts baking soda
 to 2 to 3 parts part water.
(it makes a soft  paste.)
apply to your clean face.
~ make gentle little circles~
i rinse, cleanse once again and moisturize.

 this concoction is also a treat for elbows, hands and feet!

(i have a healthy glow and i'm down two and a half pounds...i'd say
week one  was a success! )   


don't's the last day for the give a way!
i'll announce the winner on Wednesday!
