Things we eat and drink these days/

Let me start by saying I have been seriously contemplating about starting a food blog. I love cooking and trying out new recipes. I love feeding my family yummy food. I love styling my food so I am in the process of picking a name..... will let you  know as soon as I have everything ready.

Weekend Trip: Winery in North Georgia

A week ago we took a trip to a couple of wineries in North Georgia, it was quite an experience. We visted FrogTown Cellars and the Three Sisters, we were supposed to visit a third one but what happend was that our limo broke down and it took them 2 hours to fix it.
I tried dessert wine since I like sweet wine instead of dry white wine. I bought 3 bottles in the end and can wait to open them soon.

I got food on my mind.

I don't know what it is exactly but as soon as I wake up in the morning I am already thinking what I will be cooking for dinner. I love putting together a colorful plate , I love the combination of different textures and fresh herbs from the garden. But what I love the most is when I hear "this is good mom".

I think what is going on in my brain is that I have a inspiration board growing in their. If I am going to take pictures of dinner that day, I like to plan ahead by buying groceries the day before, I start cooking around 2 so I can take pictures before we eat. I love using natural light so I take all of my pictures outside in my screened porch for the background I use wooden boards I have, you can use a cheese board or a cutting board too.
here are some recent pictures of food I took with my camera and the phone.

Changing background.

I like changing the background of my facebook cover. I went to the Farmers Market and thought these are interesting fruit and veggies so I took pictures and now my background is a closeup of a Rambutan fruit. I love this fruit, was a bit scarred to try it but in the end I am glad I gave it try it is so delicious. The chillies that is a whole different story......ouch.

What I made recently: Boho Jewelry.

When I have time I like to sit and my desk and create, but there are times when inspiration doesn't come. Yesterday after watching Netherlands beat Chile in the world cup these beautiful coral beads (they look like chile peppers) was all I needed to stumble upon.
The Deer Antler is a necklace you can wear on it's on or layered. They are both for sale in my Etsy shop.

My latest project: My favorite place at home.

I have to say that this is one of my favorite rooms in my house next to the screened porch.
I called this my Bonaire room, because I love incorporating things that remind me of the island life style. I have a  map of Bonaire hanging on the wall and shells just to name a few.
I recently changed the wall color,  my goal was to make this room feel like I am somewhere on a island, since the beach is so far away from here.
I bought some fabric and made some pillow color, I picked a feed bag that right now serves just a throw on the couch( I want to make a bag out of it)  at a flea market and couple of twigs outside.
I just love the serenity this room brings.

the sofa and the arm chair are from Pottery Barn
the side tables are from TJMaxx
the table I can't remember but here I store everything I need to set up for a jewelry show.
