"Did I Ever Mention...?"

     Did I ever mention that one of the of things that I love to do other than collect beautiful things is...cook. More than that I love watching cooking shows and my all time favorite is Barefoot Contessa. I love her story and her husband Jefferey has to be the luckiest man in the world along with her circle of friends who get to eat at her table. And if you have never been to North Carolina (my birthplace) well the Chapel Hill area is beautiful, lush and green.

     And I like Giada at Home...I mean who doesn't love that smile and envy that figure! Honestly folks who eats like that and stays that shapely, well it's not me. Oh oh oh I can think of another infectious smile (just like Giada's) I recently discovered.

     Her name is Lissa and she has a beautiful blog Is her smile infectious or not?! I don't know her personally but she looks like lady it who would be a pleasure to know and eat some of her dishes too!

Ready... set...Smile

Painted Toe

     And of course, here's a smile we absolutely can not live without and that's the smile of "Painted Toe". Her precious smile eagerly awaits us come rain or sunshine....and this is how I started out January 1, 2013...with a smile. 

     Until next time I hope your day started with one or that you gave one away! That's a smile....
