Lately, I have been getting home really late from work ( after midnight ) and my dear sweet husband has made me dinner every single night. I would come home and setting on the coffee table were the great little notes telling me where the dinner would be. I just have to share - they make me smile.
Today while shopping at one of my favorite thrift stores, I came across this amazing wall paper. So I thought how beautiful would that look in my ugly closet - I could transform my closet it to a chic boutique that would just scream put your clothes away in me! Here is how I took my closet from boring to oh la la. Step 1 Find an ugly closet! When I took a piece of the wood away I came across this wonderful little treasure of the past. I found this small piece of what was small green leaf wall paper- my house is about 90 years old and this closet once in its glory was just as fancy as it is today. Step 2 Paint and add the wall paper of your choice. I took out the old hanging bar and replaced it with a new one. Step 3 Add the Oh La La Here I hung a mirror that I purchased at a decor store along with the small frame to the right. I added a chandelier that I had gotten a few years ago to add some light - I am in LOVE with my new closet and can't wait to hang all of my clothes in it.

Getting ready for the colder months I came across some really wonderful milk recipes. For me I personally don't drink milk - icky. However these dainty little recipes makes me want to whip up a few to make me warm and toasty in the upcoming winter months. If you try them let me know what you think - I would love to hear you thoughts on how they may taste. I'm just sticking with the coffee and chocolate mint flavors. Start with dry powered milk - this is a good way to make a rich base for any frothy beverage. In making these Mild to Milk recipes, add dry milk to the liquids and blend together thoroughly by using your blender. All these recipes are for 1 glass - enjoy!

Raspberry or Strawberry Milk One cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of raspberry or strawberry syrup, dash of salt, 1/4 cup of powdered milk.
