I have been going back and forth for months whether or not to start up this blog again. On one hand I had some really fun ideas that I wanted to share with readers, but on the other hand I was afraid to over commit myself. But then I kept thinking about my neighbor’s door and how she decorated it so cute for fall. I really wanted to get started right away and post about her door, but something was stopping me. I didn’t want to admit it, but part of the reason I hadn’t started the blog again is because I am not crazy about talking about my thoughts or feelings. Letting people get to know me very well is not exactly my strong suit. Yet, I knew that to create a blog of any interest, I would have to let my guard down at least a bit. So there I sat on the fence…
That is until this morning, when my devotion chapter was titled Doorway to a Heart. My thoughts immediately went back to my neighbor’s door and about how the blog would be like a doorway to my heart. The point of the devotion was that God uses work to bring people into our lives and this could be a doorway to their heart. The devotional book is Created for Work, by Bob Schultz (I was borrowing my son’s book, it is really aimed at 12 year old boys!) and he starts the chapter with this quote:
Well, that just about did it for me. I do want my business to be about more than an income, more than just selling beautiful dishes, and more than just showing fun tablescapes. While I love all of those things, there is much more to life and work than that.
So, I have decided to walk through that doorway and share a bit of myself. Of course, there will still be lots great food ideas and pictures of gorgeous table settings. So, please join me along the way!

Yes, these are the very same pewter measuring cups and spoons that you have seen Paula Deen use on the Food Network. They are truly pieces of art and will add personality and function to your kitchen. There are several motifs to choose from, celtic, dragonfly, hearts, fish, vineyard, and even moose!
