Julia Child and a Saturday Spotlight

Today I am spending the day watching a tribute to Julia Child on PBS. If its on in your area I suggest you tune in. You can really gather some great inspiration from such a delightful and seasoned chef.

A few of my favorite Etsy sellers that take pride in their creations....

Some of you will notice that I love my handmade soap. The reason? It leaves your skin silky smooth, sweet smelling, moisterized and they never dry you out! I just ordered some of this beautiful fragrant Gardenia soap available from

I had the wonderful opportunity to do a trade with Nicole from Nicoles Handmade Treats. These Cashew Clusters were to die for!! Much better than anything you can pick up at your local supermarket. I find myself craving them often..sadly sugar is out for now.. but I HIGHLY reccommend her treats! Delicious chocolate creations available from

Wanna spice up your life? Then grab a set of custom blended spices created with love by Deirdre at Kitchen Stories. Her artfully blended spices are delicious and can turn that boring chicken into a new fine dining experience. I ordered her "3 blends for $15.00" deal. My choices were Greek Herb(great on greek salad!), Italian Herb(wonderful on pizza!) and Cajun Spice(Delicious on baked chicken!). Spices are available from

I suppose Julia got me in the mood for food today.

Shop handmade and be crafty & creative today!
