The Desperate Diva

A little bit of everything! That's what you'll find at The Desperate Diva. Dianne is one of the founders of The Snooty Woman's blog.......yes, the one that just featured ME! I had never been to her blog before and I am so glad to be able to scratch her back because I love her blog. She's got great ideas for entertaining...........this is one woman I do NOT want as a neighbor. I couldn't even come close to measuring up. She is like Martha on crack. She's amazing as you'll see when you visit.
What ever she starts as a hobby usually ends up as a business........which explains ALL of her websites full of fun things.........it looks like she just opened up a cute cafe.......I need to go back and read some more..............I don't have a full grasp of all her businesses, but I will. It's gonna take me a bit to acquaint myself......there is just so much there.

Once there, you figure out pretty quickly that she is spoiled! Spoiled Rotten!
Would you look at her linen closet? Kitchen linens.........she thinks this is a mess. I think it looks awesome!
Just when I make the decision to simplify my life.........get rid of things I don't think I need, I see her blog. She is so ready for any event. How wonderful to be able to plan a beautiful event at a moments notice..........like this belowHer Grand daughter called her last minute and told her that they were coming over to have dinner at her house for Prom. It's fun to read and feel the warm relationships she has with her grand daughters.

They do lots of cooking together........here's a cute one above........but what really grabs me here......my shallow side is rearing it's ugly head...........but what I really love about this photo is the kitchen! Would you look at that range? Red knobs? Love those.........and that back splash?

Since she cooks, she has an apron for just about every event............that's what I need..........more aprons. Maybe then I would be just like her. I think she makes them too......... Martha on crack.....

And maybe if I had a rolling pin like this one, I might make even make a pie..........come on......who has a rolling pin like that except for spoiled rotten women. :)

Drooling alert ahead.........I was just thinking this morning how I would LOVE to have every cupboard completely organized.........it was a dream really. Then I see hers. How wonderful to have all these baking dishes and all in those colors! I'm thinking she knows a Southern Living at HOME person.

This drawer makes my heart sing!

Now why haven't I thought of this? What a great idea! She makes paper plates look fancy. And look how nice it looks. Won't your guest be impressed? I need some of those.

And since there's all this kitchen talk........she has recipes. Blueberry dumplings! Oh my!Ok, maybe I do want her as a neighbor..........I could be getting gifts like these. She has a post about making the cutest gifts with a few baked products. She is ready...........here is her supply closet........wow! I love seeing all those items all organized. But wait...............Here's a peek into her sewing room...........Good Golly Miss Molly!A couple of shots to prove she really is spoiled..........just in case you thought I was just exaggerating.And her outdoor room.......................Don't visit her until you have a few moments. Like I said she has more websites and fun things than.........I don't know what. But she's busy..........and everything looks so nice. Great ideas for spoiling others.........great eye candy and you leave refreshed.
