  • HOWDY.

    Thanks for stopping by sweetfrenchtoast!

    I'm Sabrina, and I love to make pretty things, visit inspiring places, eat really good food, and take lots of photos along the way. Though I live with my husband in Atlanta, GA, I consider the world my home, and I can't wait to see more of it.

sunday brunch: home sweet home

  1. How many people and pets live in your home?
    One person and one pet.

  2. Do you rent, own or live at home?
    I own a condo.

  3. How many rooms are in your house?
    A living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms make a total of eight rooms.

  4. Is there enough room in your house to comfortably accommodate overnight guests?
    I guess it depends on what you mean by “comfortably.” I could have guests sleep on the couch or in my office on an air mattress or in a sleeping bag. They would have their own bathroom, but no real bed to sleep in, unfortunately.

  5. How close do your neighbors live? Do you know them well and are they welcome in your home?
    Since I am in a condominium complex, my neighbors live too close for my liking. I know some of them fairly well and would rather not know others as well as I do. Most of my neighbors are welcome in my home but I am having neighbor problems with a certain unit so I would not want them to come into my home for any reason.:(

long live ebay

BrillianaSo I’m in the process of posting several items for sale on eBay. I have, like many people I know, a list of things I need to sell on eBay, so I’m finally tackling it and starting off by posting the 2001 Hallmark Frostlight Faeries ornaments I have. Two Christmases ago, I hit the after-Christmas sale at a local Hallmark store and picked up a bunch of these darling ornaments at a great deal. I sold some of them that year and held onto the others until now, with the original intention of using them on a tree of my own.

Now, however, I’ve decided I could use the cash instead.

So dinner last night was really good! I made spinach and strawberry salad, feta stuffed chicken, tomato and lentil couscous, steamed broccoli, and a homemade carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. (Thank you, Allrecipes.com.) It was all pretty darned delicious, and everyone walked away alive…ha ha.:P

Today the Georgia Bulldogs beat Georgia Tech pretty bad.

It’s too bad I really don’t care about college football.

And arrrgghhh…I’m actually using the hotspot at Barnes & Noble right now. My Comcast cable modem has been out for days, and a technician was sent out to fix it today but it’s still not working. Don’t they know that there are people out there (like me) who depend on the Internet for so much more than entertainment?!


so go buy something, please :P

I spent a good portion of today setting up a premium shop over at CaféPress. Will it be worth it? Maybe. Did I enjoy setting it up? Absolutely. And I’ve got plans to add more stuff to it…if you head over you’ll notice that there aren’t many items there yet and my calendar has a few months with the same photo.

I’m working on it.

For now, though, I’m going to get offline and get ready to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. Four-day weekend…yessssss!

[Edit: My CaféPress storefront is no longer available. You can now find me at sugar7.]

finally, I join the crowd

So, after ten years of tinkering about and working professionally in the Web world, I have finally started my own personal blog. I have watched the blog phenomenon for the past few years, and I’ve even incorporated the technology into some of the Web sites I’ve developed for other people, but I had never actually taken the leap and started my own little place to rant and rave. So…here it is.

I’ll try to keep this fairly current and somewhat interesting, but bear with me. I’m a newbie at this, and I’m still trying to figure out all the stuff I can do with it. You can keep me encouraged by commenting when you feel like it and spreading the word when you find something here interesting or inspiring.

Tally ho!
