FLIP Restaurant

One beautiful, sunny, and finally, warm day the end of March, my boys took me out to lunch at one of the most interesting and unique restaurants in the Atlanta area.  It was FLIP which is located on Howell Mill Road.   Their chef is Richard Blais from the Food Network's "Iron Chef".  And oh, and the food was so good.  I had the Philly Beef Burger and a Mango Martini on the side!

The whole design on the inside is so edgy and interesting.  The ceiling is reflective of the rest of the restaurant, with white booths hanging from above.  Very fun atmosphere!

Look at those flat screen TV's.....a designer's dream!

All-in-all it was a very enjoyable afternoon....the company was fantastic, the food was delicious and the drinks divine!

This restaurant is a definate "must-see" if you are in Atlanta!

Mother Nature's Yard Art

After the rains in the Fall and all the cold snowy weather this Winter, I definately appreciate my garden so much more this year.  The roses are very brilliant in color this Spring.  And the hydrangea blossoms are plentiful on all my bushes.  So much so, that I just had to share it with you all............Happy Friday!

I'm participating in My Romantic Home's "Show and Tell Friday" blog party today.  Be sure and check out some more fun photos at their blog.

Also joining An Oregon Cottage's - Tuesday Garden Party

Room Redesign

Ever just want a new look, but don't want to invest a lot of money into it?  Well, our Room Redesign program can do the trick for you.  Thru a 3-4 hour process, you can have a whole new design layout in any room in your home.  It is amazing sometimes, how much of a difference a Room Redesign can make in someones home.  Sometimes even we are surprised at the outcome.  Here are some before and after photos from our work in customer's homes:

     Redesign 1 - Before

Redesign 2 - Before

Redesign 3 - Before

Isn't it an incredible difference in the look and feel of the room?  And this is all done with the homeowner's furniture and accessories found in the home.  What a great way to get a new look with a low out-of-pocket cost.  It's a perfect way to start off the summer!

We are participating in the blog event on the Between Naps on the Porch blog called Metamorphosis Monday.  Be sure and check out some other awesome "Before and Afters" on their page.

Weekend Coffee

My favorite time of the week is when my hubby and I head out for our weekend breakfast.... out on the town.  This usually precedes a day of running errands, picking up gardening supplies, shopping for groceries, picking up things for the store too. 

This weekend we stopped at my personal favorite, Caribou Coffee.  Love their light roast coffee........hmmmmm.....and the coffee...............!  Nothing like that first sip in the morning!!!  Oh and sometimes you need it more than other mornings...............

Service is great......

Oh, and the cinnamon coffee simply the best!  Breakfast of champions......!

Seating is cozy & divine!

Always can find a gift if you need one!

And the staff is so friendly.....

And personable too!

Happy Weekend from me at my favorite coffee shop on Hwy 92 in Woodstock!

Photos were taken w/ my cell phone, so if they are a little blurry that's why.
Thanks for stopping by!

Afternoon Tea

Just had to share these photos with you of a special lunch that I had at the Tea Leaves and Thyme Tea Room with my son.  He treated me out for a surprise lunch on my birthday!  He just showed up and said "Let's go, we have a luncheon date at 1pm Mom".  And off we went!  The girls at the tea room had fun with John.  But I think he enjoyed it as much as I did.  The food was divine and so was the strawberry tea we had that day!

                                       We had the perfect table..............

The tea was absolutely wonderful!

And, oh, the food.....really yummy! 

Isn't your mouth watering????

And of course we had to dress for the occasion!  Cute fur huh?

And then there was dessert.......chocolate........!

Such a fun luncheon date!

What an afternoon to remember.......I know I will remember this birthday for years to come. 
Oh, and by the way, he's single girls!

Mother's Day Book Signing

We had so much fun yesterday afternoon hosting Johnnie Gabriel from Gabriel's Restaurant in Marietta.  Johnnie was here at the store signing her cookbook, "Cooking in the South".  Here are some photos from our afternoon event!

Johnnie even brought some delicious strawberry wedding cake and her famous chicken salad for us to sample from her cookbook.  Wow it was so good!

If you missed this event, we still have autographed copies of the cookbook available for purchase at the store.
