My family had a wonderful weekend as we celebrated my niece’s engagement at the Ohio State/Penn State Football game and tailgating. Her fiance’s family are Penn State fans and we, of course are from Ohio! Friends and family came from near and far to celebrate. Merging the two families together was a win for everybody! I loved their engagement cake! So clever.
Enjoy this week’s collection of Worthy Reads from around the web.
1010 Park Place
My post at 1010 Park Place is all about Jazzing Up Your Room With a Painted Ceiling. I think you will love the collection of pictures showing how a painted ceiling can transform a room.
Room of the Week
I first fell in love with rustic elegant homes when I used to ski out west in Deer Valley, Utah. If you are going to be in cold weather, it might as well be in a beautiful lodge style home with fireplaces and gorgeous views. This large home is ideal for entertaining family and friends. Visit Style Estate for a 16 photo tour of this inviting home.
Tory Burch on How to Be the Perfect Hostess
Designer Tory Burch shares her entertaining advice with Town & Country Magazine. When asked “What makes a great party”, she responded “The best parties are when close friends from different parts of your life come together at the same time.” I so agree!
Recipe of the Week
This pot of Authentic New Orlean’s Style Gumbo would be a welcome meal on a chilly fall day. I love the name of Lauren’s blog, Tastes Better from Scratch.
Coffee Stain Removal Guide
I tend to drink more coffee with colder weather. How about you? Coffee can really stain carpets and clothing, especially when it has cream which is how I drink it. This guide from Stain Removal 101 will help you remove stains.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
