There are many foods that increase cholesterol levels and you should avoid them as most of them are also bad for your figure. For example, butter and similar fatty products we use for cooking. These products have a high concentration on fat that together with other fat we take during the day can increase the total fat levels very much


My kind of home. Stuffed with lots and lots of goodies to look at! Just beautiful!

It's absolutely beautiful! I've got to get to Canton one of these days.


I just came upon your site through another blog I follow. I really love your colors! Everyone is going for white, white and white, and I am so into colors! I really enjoyed the pictures of Kathy's house. I know they were posted in 2008, but I just saw them! :)

I wish to follow your blog, but cannot find your "Follow Me" option....Help!

I'm just catching up on all of my bloggy sistas. Life has been happening around here, so I'm behind in the bloggy world. Your Monica has a PRECIOUS home! I'm sure that she is just as precious of a friend. She has an incredible touch....as you do too! Keep the fabulous pictures coming...you are both an inspiration!

Monica has a lovely home...it looks like it is filled with love just like yours does. What a blessing to have such a sweet friend! I know you both are a blessing to your families,friends and community!

Like your home, her home is just beautiful. Just like the pages of a magazine.

My only thought is Oh how she must clean all the time..here in central Texas where I am even with the windows kept closed the dust bunnies pile up high. Sometimes the bottom of my draps look like they have 'fur' trim...

It is so pretty. I wish my own 'cottage' looked so good.

Thank you for sharing. I am now pea green with envy.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful homes. I thought I had a lot of things in my house, but I believe you have out done me. The ideas the both of you have are precious. Monica, I love all of your lamps. They are my favorite thing too.

First things first: Did I do laundry? Go to the grocery store? NO, I took my coffee and went over to Monica"s this morning!


I'm loving this tour of Monica's house! Thanks so much for sharing it with us. And I love the new look of your blog - fabulous!

Lord love a duck...Monica's house is just too cute. I especially like the turkey plates, egg cups that say BLOOM and of course the wonderful Mika COTTAGE banner. I'm thinking I might just need one of those too.

And hey! Your blog has a new face. I like! //(*_*)\\
