Random Ideas and Sightings

I have a wide range of reading topics and blogs that I follow. Some of their ideas are so great that I feel compelled to share! 

I hope you find some of these ideas helpful for Easter and Derby celebrations.

Plaid Easter Eggs might be just the thing you would like to try. Nora Murphy has a short video to watch. The eggs are so pretty!

I love simple fresh lemonade...and this looks like a great recipe and would be perfect for Easter weekend.

If you want something a bit stronger try a Kentucky Sweet Tea Cocktail from Kentucky Monthly magazine. :-)

Brussels sprouts with garlic, onion, and bacon....has my name on it. Yumm! A recipe from Kentucky Monthly. 

Looking for a Kentucky cookie cutter? I have a thing about collecting cookie cutters and tea towels. ☺

On occasion someone will ask me about the historic style bedspread in our master bedroom. Here is a similar one to mine. 

As we prepare for Derby weekend in Louisville here are some links of things to do in and around Louisvile. 

Derby Festival Top Ten
Downtown Louisville for Families
Louisville for Active Families


I have no affiliation with any of these links...just sharing with you, because I cannot help myself. :-) 

I had a haircut last week and I am experimenting with just accepting the grey!  I have colored and highlighted over the years. With son's wedding coming in June I have to get this hair thing figured out asap. Yikes! 

Wishing you a great day...

Hello, I'm Sheila and my house is a giant art project! I enjoy creating an environment where my family can feel safe, secure, and loved. We are empty nesters learning to slow down and enjoy life.


  1. I love your hair! The cut is excellent and as a silver-haired gal, I say "embrace the grey". Cute blue and white gingham shirt! xoxo

  2. Lovely post Sheila. Lots of inspiration. I hope you have a fabulous Easter.

  3. I embrace the gray! I have never colored my hair and am not going to start now. If I was trying for perfection, my hair would be way down the list of things to change (lol).

  4. I understand about the hair and which way to go. Good luck!

  5. Oh, boy! I'm going to have fun following the links (already printed out the brussel sprouts). I like your hair. I've been thinking about going "natural". You try it first! Ha!

  6. I love brussel sprouts Sheila so thanks for the idea. I also love the roses. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing with us at #overthemoon. See you next week! Sue from Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond

  7. Thank you so much for linking at #overthemoon! I look forward to seeing what you share every week. Please come back for #WonderfulWednesday or #ThursdayFavoriteThings. Enjoy your week ahead.

  8. Ha, I call the gray/white---expensive highlights ===they cost me a lifetime. Grins, love your posts, Sandi

  9. Lemonade is a fine idea about now that the weather is on the rise. Sheila I have stopped coloring my hair five years ago and never looked back. All those chemicals were making it feel like straw! Haha!!
