Garlic Roasted Tomatoes & Shrimp Pasta


Summer Seafood is the BEST!  I made a spin on THIS Real Simple recipe by adding it over pasta & roasted cherry tomatoes.  For the tomatoes - just cut them in half, coat with olive oil, salt, pepper & about a teaspoon of minced garlic.  Bake them at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. 
Toss everything together, eat up & enjoy!

This Space, This Summer


My back porch is finally shaping up!  It's funny that I am trying to tackle this space, THIS summer... when my cash flow is beyond tight.  However it has become a little design challenge & so far I am winning.. I think?!  All the big furniture, my dad or I have made & then most of the accessories have been upcycled or on super sale.  Over the next few weeks I am going to post all the dets on each of the separate projects, so be on the look out.

Bonjour!




What a YUMMY weekend! The Britton Bakers(Mom & Morgan) took a fancy French class this weekend at the Ritz while the Britton Eaters(Dad & I) got to sample a little of everything! Hmmm...I am thinking Dad & I got the better part of that deal!  But the girls had a blast & got to bring home the recipes for Chocolate Cream Pie, Apple Tart Tartin & Macaroons! Oh & those cute chef hats & aprons... they're professionals! duh.

Revamped Slip Covers


The other day I found two slip covered chairs at a really expensive store called... Goodwill! haha!
After a good wash & a quick dip in a teal dye bath I still wanted a little extra pop.  So I found some floral fabric, cut apart the separate flowers & then collaged them back together on the top portion of the chairs. I kept my collage in the centers of the front & back of the chairs but you could certainly add some to the seat or anywhere else!  Attach the flower pieces with fabric glue or if you like lots of sewing... hand stitch them on! Enjoy.
