Celebrating Home with Style

Hi everyone-

I have changed the name of my blog to reflect both of my passions. Selling Celebrating Home and finding and fixing up vintage finds.
Today I am going to show you more of my finds and share a recipe!

First, I'm so excited that I have a new recruit for my business! She is going to do great and I'm excited for her to start making money and filling her home with beautiful things! If you'd like to do what I do please contact me. You can start your own business for $149! And be making money within a week!

But back to my latest finds:
This beautiful wrought iron two tiered planter was just $15 at an antique store in Louisville. I knew right away I wanted to fill it with moss and faux Easter eggs! When the weather warms up I'll move it outside and fill it with petunias.

This piece has been with me for along time. Matt found this in the trash years ago. It was brown and had a horrible fabric on top. I gave it a white wash treatment. (Watered down paint) I took off the top and recovered it in this raspberry toile (I love toile!!!!). Then I added this raspberry trim with a hot glue gun! I tossed on needlepoint pillows and set antique china on a double cake plate in the same color scheme to complete the vingette! It makes me happy just to look at it and it provides extra seating when needed! You can do the same thing with a similiar find!

Well, I will leave you today with my famous Banana Pudding Recipe:

2 pkg. instant banana pudding
2 cups whole milk
2 cups half and half
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 small container heavy whipping cream
2 cups powdered sugar
1 box vanilla wafers
2-3 bananas sliced

*Mix pudding and both milks on high until blended add vanilla.
Pour this mixture into a separate bowl. Into your cold mixing bowl pour heavy whipping cream and beat on high until stiff peaks appear-add powdered sugar slowly until incorporated. Fold whipped cream into banana mixture. Slice amount of banana you prefer into the pudding and fold into mixture.
Line a beautiful bowl with vanilla wafers. Pour in pudding and top with a layer of sliced bananas and then a layer of vanilla wafers. Place plastic wrap on top and put into refrigerator for 4+ hours.
This is banana heaven!

Enjoy! And remember:Celebrate Your Home Today...
