the first time i remember going to a “fancy” restaurant with my mom and aunts was a place downtown charleston called “baker’s cafe” i think it moved to daniel island, but it never noticed it opened. if you know, please tell me…
i remember they didn’t have soda. i remember they were the first place i discovered monte cristo’s served with jam. i also remember they would serve a basket of french bread toasted with a side of cream cheese and their house jam. it was so simple, but i NEVER think to do it at home for me or for brunches. well that has changed!
i know it seems so simple, but MAN is it good!!
and what’s toast without being served on a vintage plate…
i am not lying to you when i say that i found this 6ft tall antique frame on the side of a tree at my mom’s church!
i have just started an etsy page. it’s full of vintage decor and clothing
i don’t talk about fashion much here, but i’m gonna start…

this recipe came to me the other day when i wanted a dessert. i tweak my biscuit recipe to be “cinnamon rolls” all the time, but this time i wanted something a little different.
the only thing i do different to the biscuit recipe is add about 1/4 c. sugar. then i roll out the dough with flour and spread the entire thing with soft butter. this time i sprinkled it with brown sugar, cinnamon and chopped pecans. i rolled it up, sliced it and baked that bitch @ 350 for about 20 minutes.
i frosted the hot biscuits with a coffee glaze. i used powdered sugar, soft butter and coffee extract
i found this chair at a local goodwill and after trying to sell “as is”, i decided to make it my first REAL re-upholstery job. i’ve done tons of kitchen chairs, but nothing like this.
i must say, i know it’s not perfect, but i’m pretty proud of my gung-ho attitude!
i probably shouldn’t say all this, but..the chair cost me $4 and the fabric i found for $2.80/yard!! minus the staples i used and the labor time, this chair cost me $11
i am REALLY ready for some new art on my walls… i have 2 wpa poster re-prints for my son’s room and i think i wanna get something for myself. i LOVE many of them, but i’m looking for something a little less cliche. these are what i’m liking today. i leaning towards the one that is actually cut off. i like the “rawness” of it, i like the music notes and i love the muted red and green together…
…what do you think?
