Home decorating and entertaining ideas

The August issue of Southern Living is their Special Decorating Issue, and it includes interior and exterior makeovers, with ideas such as adding a second entrance to improve a boring front exterior, colorful baseboards, and displaying your collectibles to tell a story. And you can make your sofa a focal point with bold uphostery and a pom pom fringe. (That'll be sure to attract your pet's attention too...)

Two ideas that I do not like are cutting down a dining room table to make it into a coffee table. (They're stilll doing that?!) And open shelving in the kitchen. Hmm. So, they don't have pets, children, or do any cooking?

The recipe collection includes picnic dishes, a Key Lime Icebox Cake (no baking), and white barbecue sauce. (Mayonnaise is the base.) That cake looks yummy, btw. Its layers are topped with whipped cream and a lime slice with leaves garnish. Enjoy!
