I hope you are all celebrating the end of 2013 and the start of a New Year. I love interesting table settings and tablescapes. Check out www.betweennapsontheporch.net where the blogger used vintage clocks to set a stunning table. Happy New Year to all!
On my recent visit to the windy city, I stumbled upon a delicious doughnut shop — Glazed & Infused. They were scrumptious, and the flavors were divine. Red velvet, vanilla brulee and banana chocolate chip are just a few. The most popular is the the maple bacon long john. Do you prefer cupcakes or doughnuts? If it’s glazed, go with the doughnuts.

Motown has some unique toy stores.The pop-up store Spielhaus in Detroit is a great example. Dad Kurt Spiels, a former engineer and high school science teacher, knows which toys teach. From imported toys to homegrown finds, there is something for all ages. Spielhaus is part of Hatch Detroit. The store is currently located at 1249 Woodward, but Spiels is looking for a permanent home.

When Motowners think of Domino’s, we mean pizza. As a former magazine editor, I’m referring to the rebirth of the Domino magazine. The new editor is Michelle Adams, a Michigan State alum, and as she says, she is in charge of bringing this publication back to life. At a hefty price tag of $11.99 that will be a challenge, but the magazine is fresh. The features are fun and informative, and readers are enticed to purchase the objects featured on the Domino website.
Other notable articles include “How to throw a Cocktail Party in under one hour,” and Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment.
Blogger Meg Biram also wrote about Domino and reviewed the issue.
I’m intrigued that there are very few advertisements. I’m looking forward to the next issue.
