Episode 2

FINALLY! SUCCESS! YIPPEE!!!!!!!! Again, sorry it took so long.........but here it is!

video
Sorry! It is 6:05 and I am working on getting this video going! One moment please!

Less than an hour to go.....

HI THERE! Less than one hour to go until the second episode of Home Style Happy Hour. Still a few technical bugs to work out - still can't seem to get both of us in the camera at the same time...it's harder than you think! Of course, we could get a bigger camera perhaps - we only have a FLIP camera! So once again, please bear with us - we promise - it will eventually work itself out!
Thanks so much for tuning in and enjoy the show!
GOOD MORNING! We have been remiss....we totally forgot to post the Cocktail of the Week Recipe AND the design Tip of the Week for last week! OOOOOOPS! So here you go for the first episode of 05/13/09.

KIR ROYALE:
4 oz. of french champagne or a very good sparkling wine.

( I prefer Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs)

1 oz. creme de cassis liqueur
Pour the creme de cassis in your beautiful champagne glass first and slowly add the champagne. Give it a quick stir and enjoy. It you like - add a sugar cube to your glass and watch it sizzle!

DESIGN TIP OF THE WEEK:
When sampling a new paint color in your space, paint at least a 12" x 12" patch on more than one wall and look at it during different times of the day, with natural and artificial light and live with it for a few days before making a decision!

...Take 1.......

HI THERE! Welcome to Home Style Happy Hour! Thanks so much for being with us this evening! This is the very first edition of our video blog and we realize that things might be a little rough around the edges (like the fact that I am cut in half for most of it...YIKES!) at first - but so it is! We promise things will smooth out after a few weeks so please bear with us! Thanks again for stopping by and we hope to see you again soon!
