EASY ON A SUNDAY MORNING :: Biscotti, Twitter...and the Beach

The end of summer is upon us friends. The temperatures have dropped, at least for the weekend, but I thought that we would have one last Sunday morning with a view of the sand and sea!

Due to the autumn winds blowing in for a visit, maybe something a little warm and toasty might be in order today. Since I need my morning jolt of caffeine, I have poured us some frothy cappuccinos and what goes nicer with a hot cappuccino than some delicious biscotti, pumpkin spice biscotti I might add!
Want the recipe for these tasties?? Then the Entertaining Kitchen is where you will want to head!

On a search for a little gift for a friend, I stumbled upon a delightful site, Flapperdoodle. The artist behind the doodles is Kate Gabrielle and she is simply fabulous! Stationery, playing cards, prints and a bunch of other goodies I know you will love! Click on any of the links here or above and you can find her on Twitter here.

Speaking of Twitter, yes Lily has joined the rest of the world in the 21st century and has started tweeting up a storm. Not sure what to make of it just yet, but I must say that it is an ingenious way to connect with new people with shared interests and with some not-so-new people that you have lost touch with. One of those people I have recently re-found is the uber-talented Danielle, the lady behind Lucky Life Parties. In the 'what a fabulous idea' department, click on the link above or here to read her latest post on the chicest cheese palettes I have ever seen.  Perfect to pass around to guests, who doesn't like to nibble while they mingle!

A few weeks ago, I was the lucky winner of a smashing 'Bella Cupcake Couture' cupcake wrapper giveaway at Housewife Bliss. I know, I know, I am sure there is not a soul out there in blogger-land who isn't already  familiar with Ms. Bliss and her super blog but did you know that she is now ready for business as well as blogging?!?!
The Market Place is open and lucky for us, for it is chock full of delights all 'blissful' homes should not be without!

Did you know dear friends that Lily Lemontree has a website? It has been kicking around for awhile and we are presently updating our site with a bunch of new features, one of which is an international directory of etiquette trainers and experts. We are sending a call-out to trainers and experts who would love to join us!

Biscotti, black coffee, and the sunday crossword make up my ideal morning.
