Estate Sale and Birthday Dinner


Today was a busy but fun day. It started off with an estate sale. I was able to pick up quite an assortment of items...the directors chairs are metal with wooden arm rests...very cool and comfortable. Favorite find of the day?   No question-the wine glasses with the blue ball in the stem-gorgeous! I just had to keep them and use them for my husbands birthday dinner....


So as I was setting the table, I was distracted by the sheer beauty of these peonies and had to take lots of pictures, here are a few. I think you'll understand my distraction....






My son decided that the table was too 'pretty' for celebrating his Dads birthday, so he changed the centerpiece...I love it. He has learned a lot from watching his mom. ;-)

 The sailboat is from White Flower Farmhouse on Long Island, NY. I purchased it there 2 years ago on a girls trip to the vineyards. Stunning store! (and blog!)

As most of you know, I am not much of a cook, but I like to experiment with simple recipes. Tonight's menu was caprese salad (my favorite now that tomatoes are in season)


and pizza on the grill. I've been wanting to try this for awhile. Here's how it worked out....

toppings....


Grill one side brushed with olive oil...

put the sauce and toppings on, put back on the grill.....

and, voila yummy pizza!!!

Off to have dessert and watch the Bruins win the Stanley Cup!

Enjoy!
