I lived to tell about it

My post titled Death by Chocolate was a bit scary for me since I wasn't sure if I would live through the experience to tell about it. Well here I am World and I have to say It was the most heavenly food experience ever. LOL Okay, maybe not the most but pretty darn close. If you haven't tried the brownies yet you really should. You will thank me or hate me later. Either way you will love the brownies.

Taking ingredients from this....

To this.....

To this.....mmmmm can't you just taste them?
There must be chocolate in Heaven!

That is the day we went to the Atlanta Aquarium to see Martha Stewart and that is also the day that she complimented my necklaces. (Cheeezy grin goin' on here) I could kick myself for not saying anymore than thank you. I just spazzed! Anyway....I have decided to give away one of the necklace and earring ensembles that she complimented. It is called Promenade and is from the Premier Designs Jewelry line that I sell.

Educate Me Please

I had a great weekend working in the yard and planting flowers to add some color to my patio and front porch. I even bought my vegetable plants for the garden. I can't wait to get them in the ground and growing.
As I was pondering what to do with some of my rose bushes I looked at one in amazement. See, I planted 3 different roses about 4 years ago and the one that has done the best is my Silver Bell rose. It looks like a light lavender color and is the stem rose that you see in arrangements. Well, to my surprise there is also a red rose growing with my Silver Bell that I did not plant. ????? When I say it is growing with my Silver Bell, I mean that it is literally growing from the same root system. See the pictures!It really had me scratching my head. I am not an avid rose grower and I do not know much about gardening so this really had my mind going nuts.
So, I thought I would ask my Bloggy friends what caused this. Can someone out there educate me on this please?
The roses are really pretty so I am not complaining that they are there. I will just enjoy them. I just want to know what happened. :)
