So Shabby Pink - Morning Glory Beauty

Good morning!
I think we had a little rain last night here in south Texas! The air smells fresh and like wet grass.

I love Morning Glories! I plant some seeds each year at the bottom of a lattice trellis and they grow strong --- as long as I water them
every day.  That is a must here with our Texas summer heat.

Once it starts to cool a little, they start to bloom. They sure are beautiful.

Hope you are having a good Saturday morning.  Enjoy the day.

Thanks for coming by....

So Shabby Pink - No More Yard Long Prints

I have some unhappy news.  Our supplier of the beautiful yard longs we have sold for years - has gone out of business.  We had just started carrying them framed too.  So far, that has been the biggest disappointment for us this year.  We are very sad for them also.  They had been there for 30 years. 

We still have a few left in stock of the unframed and I will get them on the website soon.

Hope all are doing well and thanks for stopping by!

So Shabby Pink - Monday Menu for me and my Honey

My husband came home early for lunch today and messed up my whole menu planning!  Bless his heart, with meetings all afternoon, he ended up having to eat leftovers instead of the yummy lunch I had planned for him.  This recipe is from Taste of Home website.  It is in the oven now!  I used a small pork tenderloin and adjusted the recipe.

I will use something simple for a side dish like some peas and carrots or green beans.  Love those green beans. 

For DESSERT - 5 Cup Salad.  See recipe below.
Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin
This recipe and photo from Taste of Home

  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bone-in pork loin roast (4 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil or 4 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup white wine or chicken broth


  • In a small bowl, combine the ground mustard, herb seasoning, salt and pepper; rub over roast. In a large skillet, brown roast in 2 tablespoons oil. Place roast fat side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush top with Dijon mustard. Combine the bread crumbs, cheese, basil, thyme, rosemary, garlic and remaining oil; press onto roast.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 2 to 2-1/4 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Place on a warm serving platter. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • Stir wine into roasting pan, scraping to loosen browned bits. Pour into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cook until reduced by half. Serve with roast. Yield: 14 servings.

For Dessert - 5 Cup Salad

1 cup coconut
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mandarin oranges
1 cup pineapple pieces
1 cup tiny marshmellows

FOLD all ingredients gently to avoid breaking the mandarin oranges.  You cannot imagine how good this is.  The coconut makes it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

So Shabby Pink Offering FRAMED Yard Long Prints - Finally

I have said "Coming Soon" for quite awhile now on these framed yard longs. This week, we have finally started putting some of them on our website. 

These prints will be shipped from the manufacturer which is certainly adding a safety factor.  I have always hesitated shipping 36 inches or more of glass in a picture frame and I now have a viable solution.  They do the shipping for us.  Thank you!

We have received many requests for these.  Here in south Texas, we have every craft store you can think of, including Hobby Lobby, that sells frames at great prices to fit these 3 foot long pictures.  I just thought Hobby Lobby was everywhere, but have learned that is not so!

We will be adding more pictures available for purchase and hope you will visit soon.

Thank you for stopping by today,
