Come on in, you are just in time for coffee and pie. I do love my coffee, I drink about a pot a day. I like it black , so a little something sweet makes it all the better.

I have put out sugar just for you, in my oh so cute little sugar bowl.

Yes and some home made peach pie made with local Charleston peaches, oh so good!!

I have 4 daughters and a new granddaughter so you know that you will always find pink at my house.

My two girls dressed in the Pink!!

So please come back soon for more PINK.


Welcome to my first Foodie Friday. Today I would like to share one of my 15 year old daughters favorite dinners. CREAMY CHICKEN ALFREDO

Be sure to stop by Designs by Gollum hosted by the sweet Michael for a virtual feast and a lot of inspiration!

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
6boneless, skinless
halves(about 4
ounces each)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons plus
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1tablespoon minced
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon pepper
makes 6 servings

Preheat oven to 375F Place flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle chicken with salt; coat with flour. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until hot.

Add chicken; cook, turning once, until golden,2-4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet; place in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.

Heat remaining olive oil in same skillet over medium heat until hot. Add garlic and onion; cook until garlic is fragrant and onion is tender, 1-2 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high add whipping cream, Parmesan and pepper. Cook until sauce is bubbly and slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes.

Spoon sauce over chicken in the dish.

Bake chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted in chicken registers 180 f, 8-12 minutes.

It is very important to use whipping cream instead of milk because the fat content helps keep the sauce from separating and gives it a rich flavor.

I like to serve with noodles and vegetables!! ENJOY

I found the dishes at you know where GOODWILL, Last summer I put a butterfly garden in my back yard. The butterfly garden brought me so much joy, so when I saw the dishes with the butterflies and dragonflies, ladybugs and a bee, I just had to have them.

There was just a place setting for four so I will be on the hunt for more!!

If you look just out side the window you can see the milkweed that the butterflies just love!!

The way to cute Bunny came from a Thrift store many years ago, I think I have had him for about ten years now, and I love him now, as much as the day I found him. The green depression glass I have collected for many years also, I just pick up things I love when I see them.

I just love his cute little face. Hand painted in Italy.

How cute are the butterfly napkin ring holders?

Welcome to my first Thrifty Find!!
Click above and go visit Rhoda's from Southern Hospitality's weekly Thrifty Treasures party!!! Join in on the fun or just look through at every ones awesome finds for the week.

Look at this wonderful fabric I found!!

I am tickled pink!!

I found enough fabric to make curtains for the two windows in my office. I also hope that it will be enough fabric for a small bench that sits in my office as well.

You can see one of the window's that has a sheet hanging there now. I think the greens in the fabric will go well with the wall color.

Did I tell you, I found all of this pink happiness for just $5.00. Now if I can do just as well finding the liner fabric!!

Thank you all for stopping by. Thank you Rhoda, it has been a lot of fun. See ya'll next week.
