nineandsixteen A cottage entirely done in Colefax and Fowler's Bowood on the blog... Gathering textile inspiration for a office re-do in our home... (Link in profile) ( source: @housebeautiful April 2014) 4d
  •   gracehappens_ @nineandsixteen @rusticrooster such great timing on this post! I was just starting to question if I had gone overboard with bowood. Its in Reids room, wallpapered in powder room and sunroom, upholstery in living, and pillows. It's like a new neutral for me but it truly makes me happy and it's timeless. You will love it! 4d
  •   nineandsixteen @gracehappens_ Ha. It's such a beautiful fabric. I'm torn between a few others too. Bowood is very similar to the wallpaper we had in our old master in our first home - which I loved. I can't wait to see more pics of your home!!! So happy for you!!! 4d
  •   thebrownshed Thought of @gracehappens_ right away when I saw this. Love it!! Such a classic. 4d
  •   gracehappens_ @nineandsixteen whatever you choose it will be gorgeous can't wait to see!!!! 4d
  •   rsguidry So pretty! 3d
  •   hcbinteriors Can't wait to see what you plan! 3d
  •   maddiegdesigns @nineandsixteen posted this fabric to my insta a few days ago as it is a contender for a client's master bedroom. Comes in a heavier weight option too which I love. Such a fabulous fabric. I want it in my home after working in this project. Cannot wait to hop over to your blog and see more. 3d
  •   lovelylittleparties I love this fabric and you know I adore the Lee Jofa. 3d

nineandsixteen Another recommendation. I couldn't put this one down nor will I be able to stop thinking about Esme for a long time to come. A heartbreaking story set in the 1930's to present day. Pressures of conformity faced by upper class women in this time, the abuse of psychiatry and betrayal of family are all packed in this short book that can easily be read in 1 or 2 sittings. The writing style takes a second to get used to - no chapters and three points of view but stick with it bc it makes the story better. Not an uplifting read, but it's an incredible one. (@heather5174 your rec. - you were spot on. Had me completely undone.) #nshbookclub 2w
  •   tessamusing37 The cover looks so 50's. With not quite as plunging a neckline, perhaps. Been there, done th 2w

  •   crookedcreekcottage This looks amazing!!! 1w
  •   crookedcreekcottage Recipe?? My men would love this!!!! 1w
  •   nineandsixteen @crookedcreekcottage no recipe... Just trader joes hashbrowns and eggs and scallions. Cook hashbrowns in a bit of olive or canola oil, as soon as one side is brown flip and immediately crack eggs on top. They will cook while otherwise browns. Season with salt and pepper and top with diced scallions! 1w
  •   crookedcreekcottage Looks so yummy, thank you!!! 1w

nineandsixteen It's not the most photogenic soup, which is probably why I've never blogged the recipe but I feel almost guilty for not sharing bc it is one of the easiest things I make and really good. One of my very best friends from IU gave me the recipe sooo many years ago. Think it was when we were both new mamas ( our eldest boys are born only a day apart). It is one of Jimmy's favorite soups and often requested. So here you go... Spicy Beef and Potato Soup | in a large saucepan brown one pound of ground beef along with 1 large diced onion. Once meat is brown add 3 peeled and chopped russet baking potatoes, 1 inch dice. Add 3, 8oz cans tomato sauce and 4 cups water. Season with 2 tsp kosher salt and a few shakes of hot sauce ( add more to make spicier) . Let simmer, uncovered, for 1-1.5 hours. I'm serious. So good and filling. 🏻 2w
  •   nineandsixteen @achoak what did u think? 2w
  •   achoak @nineandsixteen family loved it. I served it with beer bread and it was a great lunch. Thank you!. 2w
  •   kristindabney The least picturesque are often the tastiest !! 2w
  •   phalford What brand / kind of tomato sauce did you use? 1w
  •   akiessling1 This past weekend I made this soup. It was delicious and easy to make. Thanks for sharing the recipe! 6d
  •   crookedcreekcottage Ok I'm making this for dinner tonight- better be good!! Made the eggs in hash browns last night and they were delicious!!! One question- do you put lid on to help cook eggs faster? Hubby likes them med easy, didn't wanna burn potatoes but still have them crispy. 3d
  •   crookedcreekcottage ...anyways, they were a snap and really, really yummy-thank you so much! Your Lemon Crossiant French Toast is on my radar too!!! I have one for you-Lemon Pancakes from Joy of Cooking - we used all Greek yogurt as suggested and it was amazing!!!!!! Also, Laura Bush Texas Governor's Cowboy Cookies -oh heavens!!! Read the reviews BEST COOKIES EVER!!!! 3d
  •   nineandsixteen @crookedcreekcottage thanks for the recommendations!! Those pancakes sound amazing!! As for eggs, no lid, just low heat so potatoes don't burn. 3d

nineandsixteen In between all the reading I did this weekend, I also tested a few other chocolate krinkle cookie recipes. The winning combination? Use regular not Dutch cocoa, have Charlie assist me and use an overnight dough. Favorite recipe is the double chocolate krinkle cookies from Sally's Baking Addiction! 3w

nineandsixteen The perfect long weekend, plop yourself in front of a fire and get lost in a great story sort of book... Which is exactly what I did. I think a couple of IG friends recommended Kate Morton to me and I'm so glad you did bc it's not a book I would have picked up otherwise - pleasantly surprised!! #nshbookclub 3w

  •   nineandsixteen @cate.rio you know, it took me about 100 pages to get into it. I would read a little each night but I wasn't hooked until a bit further in. Pick it back up again. The ending will not disappoint!! 3w
