In the Mood for Chocolate!

I'm always in the mood for chocolate. I love chocolate desserts, rich brown clothing, and brown home accents. It is my "new-black". I wear a lot of brown and turquoise jewelry, so I have to match with brown accessories. I use brown as the foundation and then brighten up with pinks, blues, and greens. You can't go wrong with browns.

Brown Sugar Apron
I made this one in a brown and grey/blue fabric. It has two brown taffeta pockets and brown lace trim. It is not your every-day apron. It is the perfect hostess apron for your next special dinner. Love the rich brown waist band.


.
Now on to tasty treats. LOVE THEM ALL. Yummy!!

.
Gorgeous brown accessories. Use boldly or just a hint.

.
Brown home deco is so warming. It looks great with bright accents.

Thankful Penny Pinching Ideas
As a single mom I'm always have to be thrifty and stretch my pennies as much as possible. This Thankful Thursday, I'm thankful for my job because we are blessed with a good income. Yet, I don't splurge irresponsibly. When we go out to eat we order the full size meal so we can have leftovers. It is a lot of food but we can stretch it into 2 meals. Here's and example of one of our favorite restaurants, Texas Road House where we enjoy "Fall-off-the-Bone" Ribs: a 1/2 slab ribs is $12 and a full slab ribs = $17. For just $5 extra we get delicious ribs two days in a row; and we really should be eating smaller meals anyway.
