Welcome to my colorful world of food, recipes, art, and the stories that evolve when you share what you cook. From beautifully crafted food to whimsical entertaining ideas, from decorating your home to salvaged chic DIY projects C8C is not just another lifestyle blog… I tend the garden, can vegetables, make fresh food from recipes passed down through generations. I take great care to set a beautiful table and create an experience, not just a meal.
I am no longer content to go through the motions or settle for the status quo in my blogging pursuits. I find myself restlessly pulled toward something more, something with a special twist. Instead of wishing circumstances were different, I decided to make them different. Instead of waiting for golden opportunities to appear, I elected to spin the gold with the opportunities at hand – my unique set of talents as a foodie, artist, photographer, and storyteller.
