No place like home… by Gloria

As much as I enjoy being out and about, sometimes, it feels so good to just be at home. I’ve been living in my apartment for a little over 2 years and I thought I’d share some of my favorites that make home well, home.

~Vintage frosted etched glasses- these were my grandmothers- and they help to make everything I put in them just a little bit sweeter~

~Vintage china cabinet. I bought this at a used furniture store and the moment I laid eyes on it, I knew it had to be mine. I love the grandfather clock/steeple-like shape~

Winter Warmers…by Gloria

I thought I’d start my blog with the things that make me happiest when the days are too short and the weather is cold. This weekend, my boyfriend and I left the city for some suburban “r & r” with family. I made some simmered apple cider which we spiked with some brandy and relaxed by the fire. I hope you lay back and enjoy it as well…

~slice oranges, insert cloves into each orange segment, add a few teaspoons of brown sugar and some cinnamon sticks, let simmer. add some brandy to a glass mug and fill with the cider (recipe courtesy of my boyfriends cousin, Christina)~

~sit back, relax and enjoy~
