Giveaway with Wildtree!

Wildtree is a company that sells a huge selection of spices, sauces, oils, and more.  They have everything that you need to make nutritious meals that are quick and easy.  Wildtree even offers ingredients to make drinks and desserts!  I have friends and family who have been using Wildtree for ages, and they all love it.  Not to mention that there are many items for under $10!

Today I'm excited to be partnering with Amanda, a wife, mother of FIVE, and Wildtree representative!  She has graciously offered to provide the winner with a special prize from Wildtree.

The item up for grabs is one of their most popular--Wildtree's Grapeseed Oil in the butter flavor.

"Expeller Pressed Grapeseed Oil is made from grape seeds after wine production. It is therefore environmentally sound and requires no new farmland or water to produce. Versatile, delicious and good for you, Grapeseed oil allows the pure flavor of fresh food to come through. Its delicate flavor and body make it perfect for sautéing, baking or frying. Try it in salad dressings, on pasta or hard breads, or use as marinades or bastes for the grill."

Health Benefits

· There are NO preservatives such as TBHQ or BHT.

· It is NOT hydrogenated.

· There is NO sodium.

· NO trans fatty acids.

· NO cholesterol (it actually aids in cholesterol reduction).

· It has one of the lowest levels of saturated fats of all oils.

· It is easily digestible.

· A good source of Vitamin E Alpha (an important anti-oxidant)(4.3 mg per serving).

· Highest concentration of poly (76%) unsaturated acid of any oil.

Basically, you can use it in place of cooking oil, and it lends food a buttery taste without the calories!

Something for the Guys

I shared with you last week my husband's awful, terrible, horrendous, embarrassing office.

Triple frowns.

However, without me even asking, he began to clean up in there the day after I posted this.  A miracle, to be sure.  However, there's still miles to go before we sleep.  As you can see from the photo, there's not a lot of furniture in there, which is problematic, because he has tons of files/papers/manuals that deal with his work.  He also has tons of personal stuff in there, like books and CDs.  His degree is actually in music, so he's obviously got the biggest CD collection I've ever seen (everything from Bach to Blondie).   In other words, he needs a stereo cabinet or an audio rack.  Badly. 


I'd also like to get this Bello TV stand and move our big screen out of the den.

One, I don't watch much TV, and two, what girl who loves interior design would want a big flat screen to be the centerpiece of her den?? 

Ah, the joys of marriage!

Bathrooms with Light

I can't say I've moved a ton in my life, but I have lived in several places and had, therefore, different bathrooms.  But in none of the six bathrooms I have ever called my own have ever had a window!  I feel so deprived.  The result has been, for the most part, some gloomy bathrooms.  I'm such a natural light person that it turns me off to the point that I'm very unlikely to put much decorating effort into the room.  The result? Blah bathrooms.

My only current remedy is to bathroom dream.

I like the pretty yet masculine look of this one....

Gray is also a new favorite of mine!

I love the contrast of the bright green/yellow and the stark white.

Who wouldn't feel refreshed in this bathroom?

Can a bathroom this amazing even exist?  Look at all that natural light?  It looks like it could feed right into a dressing room and then into the bedroom, where I could have antique bedroom decor and a makeup vanity to go along with the vintage-y bathroom.

Look at this dreamy bathroom vanity!


This next one might be my ultimate dream bathroom....rustic, full of natural light, spacious....

Let there be light!

Embroidery Hoop Art

As of late, my time has been spent outside gardening or in the kitchen experimenting with different items we've beeng growing.  Thus, the coming of spring meant the departing of my urge to craft.

But the urge has returned.

Today I created a little wall decor using an old embroidery hoop, cotton fabric, scrapbook paper, book pages, and jute string.  It's reminiscent of the wreath I made here, because I am loving festive pennants and loving these soft, fresh colors.

Whether it's by gardening or crafting, I love to celebrate spring!

Didn't I just post here about how I love to be organized?

Well, I do. 

But isn't it nice when things are supposed to look a little messy? 

A little homemade?

A little rough around the edges?

A little bit natural?

How nice it is, indeed!

Zucchini Pesto Pasta

My garden has been a dream lately.  We've cut tons of basil, and over the weekend, we picked a nice big zucchini.  So, I wanted to make a meal of garden produce!

I didn't have a recipe to follow.  I was just playing it by ear, so to speak.  But roughly, I used:
1 thinly sliced zucchini
2 cups uncooked pasta
1 cup homemade pesto sauce
2 cups thinly sliced chicken breast
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Garlic salt
Salt and pepper

I cut the zucchini ino thin ribs and sauteed it in garlic salt and olive oil.

And then, well, I mixed everything (zucchini strips, cooked chicken, cooked pasta, cheese, and pesto sauce) together!  It tasted so good.

So unbelievably fresh!
