Update 4 May 16: Found out this morning that my card was selected as a Pals Paper Artist Pick! Whoo-hoo! Wanted to thank the folks over at PPA for picking my card amongst all the beautiful projects submitted!
Hey, y’all! Happy Sunday!
If you’re coming over from Amy’s Blog – welcome and thanks for stopping by! Or Welcome Back – as the case may be.
So, yesterday, my friend and I went down to the historic district in Savannah. Our first stop was a restaurant called The Olde Pink House.
My friend Jan had given me the recommendation when she heard I was coming to Savannah – and thank the Lord for that! We waited just a short time, cuz my friend had made us a reservation – and we watched dish after dish being carried out to hungry customers. When we finally got to our table – in fact, the window on the second floor, just to the right of the front porch is where we sat! – we were huuuuungry! We ended up splitting three appetizers – Fried Green Tomatoes, Mac & Cheese Jalapeño Poppers and an onion stuffed with an Andouille sausage and cheese mixture and baked. They were ridiculously good – we barely kept ourselves from licking the plates! And then we both ordered Country Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and collards. Oh. My. Sweet. Lord.
I’m not a fan of boneless chicken breasts – they seem to always be dry as sawdust. But this – this was a juicy work of pure art. Melted in our mouths! Aaron – who doesn’t seem like he should be a foodie, but is! – said he was pretty sure this was the best meal he’d has in his entire life!
So – if you’re ever coming down to Savannah – skip right past The Lady and Sons (trust me on this) and head to The Olde Pink House. The house itself is gorgeous, all the tables are set up in the various rooms of the Havershams’ old and beautiful family home and the wait staff all know little tidbits of history from the house. And the food is beyond spectacular.
In fact – let me re-phrase. You need to start figuring out a reason to come to Savannah! Right now! 🙂
Okay. Card. Not food. On it…
The same friend that I had lunch with had asked me to make him an Anniversary card for his wife. I seem to get a lot of commissions when I’m out on business! 🙂 So, I came up with a card that would suit his (and her) not-so-froofy natures. I used the coming-soon Affectionately Yours DSP and Love & Affection stamp set, and combined it with Timeless Love from the current Annual Catalog. Take a look-see:
I was going for a pretty and elegant card, with not a lot of bling, but some. The copper accents in the new Affectionately Yours DSP was just the ticket, and I played that theme out by also using the new Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Continue reading
