this weekend is my mom's 60th b'day and so my family is coming here!  i've got some cooking to do...i am going to attempt one of our favorite thai recipe (my brother lived in thailand for years so we love thai food) and i am going to make my mother-in-law's famous poundcake w/ cameral frosting.  we also plan on visiting the local farmers market to get hot, homemade doughnuts that are to die for...in between all of our eating, we hope to find some treasures will out antiquing. i hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!!  if you need me, i'll be in the kitchen probably freaking out :)

Hello,
I came across your blog and was very interested in your home design articles. I just had a couple of questions, so if you could e-mail me back that would be great! Thank you for your time.
