I've been missing in action lately...the reason is simple. I've had the flu, been busy taking down Christmas decorations and I'm getting ready to decorate for Valentines Day.
BUT...also, I had a small, intimate afternoon tea party the other day, and my girl freinds.(also, my biggest fans) asked me to add some of my tablesetting skills to the blog...seems everyone CAN'T mix patterns, set a pretty table or think outside the box.
SOOOOOOO....I am going to start a "How-To" on my blog. I will start with setting an informal, mix and match table, with a few basic rules which I rely on. I hope it will help you look into your china cabinet and pull out some of those pieces you bought.."Just Because". Give me a few days to set it up, take and edit the photos and get it posted...
Most of you know...Pixie stays mostly with Ivan. She still goes to work at the office everyday, and she spends the weekends with us sometimes, but mostly she is with Ivan.
It was love at first sight when they saw each other. Pixie loves Ivan as much as Ivan loves her. She stays in Ivans office at work as much as Jeds. So when it started getting too hard for us to keep up with her, we asked Ivan to help with her.
As usual, Ivan has our back, and stepped up to the plate. There are lots of reasons I love Ivan, but one of them is his kindness. He is the kindest person I know. He says things with kindness, and he trys to always act with kindness. I will always be thankful to have him in my life.
Anyway, he sent me this photo of "Our" pixie tonight, and I thought I would share it. Thanks Ivan, I love you!
I live in Los Angeles with my husband, Jed. We have lived here for 37 years and counting. We love to read, travel, watch old movies and hang out. We also go to the theater, and we love to spend time with friends and family.
Together, we have 4 children and 5 grandchildren.
Oh, and of course, there is Pixie, our Maltepoo, whom we share custody with Ivan Molina.
