Here's to Perfect Day's &Small Changes
It's another Monday and I always seem so unprepared for this day.  I know it's coming, but from Friday to Monday morning I seem to put everything behind me in the way of creating.  All I want to do is play.  That said, I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and a celebratory St. Patrick's Day.

My St. Patrick's Day was not wild, but a very fun day.  Drove up to the mountains with the top down (town of Blue Ridge), had lunch at "Harvest on Main"  (corn beef and cabbage, which was excellent), and went antiquing.  Came home relaxed and had dinner of left-overs and a glass of wine.   Perfect Day!

 To celebrate this spring-like weather (only cause it's not officially spring):  went for walks in the park

changed my winter table setting to a spring setting,

and lastly I made 2 more desserts from Claudia's cookbook. I will share these in my next post.
