Time.....

Happy New Year to all and thank you for reading my musings over this past year......


I have always lived by the mantra of what can I do for others, not what they do for me....and my goal here on this blog is to simply bring some beauty to your day. Too old to care about being the fleeting"it girl of the moment", definitely this comes with age, along with the grey hairs, wrinkles and inner peace.....


Thank you for taking a few minutes of your TIME to be here on this page.....from my heart....



I'll be back next week with a fresh new interview post and will start out the New Year with a Giveaway for you as well.....

Wishing You

I hope that you are enjoying the holiday season and are able to spend some time with your loved ones.

My family and I wish you all the best....and I'll be back soon with an interesting interview that I think you will enjoy!


Lots of love to you.....xoxo

Lovely Win To Inspire More White Decor

Greetings and holiday love to all!

Just a quick post (post haste!) on this very cold South Florida evening, and yes.....it's COLD here and I am not complaining. Normally we sweat and fry eggs on the sidewalk (just kidding about the eggs, but you could:-), so this weather is a relief. It's nice not to sweat, but with the temp this morning at 32, I feel for the orange growers here in Florida.....and there are not that many of those groves left anyway.

On to my post....I was so thrilled to have won a blog giveaway, and a fabulous one at that! I want to thank the lovely Tricia over at the blog MorningT for sending these to me and the fabulous designer Janette Mallory for hosting this giveaway at her blog (click on their blog names to go visit).

I won this gorgeous pair of Aidan Gray candlesticks and they are just so fabulous in all of their French reproduction style.....don't you agree?

Photo from the Morning T blog, I have not had a chance to photograph them myself yet, so I hope that Tricia doesn't mind me using her photo, all credit due......
They might inspire me to continue that living room redo that I started about a year ago and have not had the gumption to finish. Definitely going for that WHITE look in our home, with this antique French tufted sofa......
Do you remember how it looked when I found it while out junking?  There's a previous post here somewhere!......
Maybe I'll use them in my dining room that is also in a "redo" state of white.......
In addition to all of the white, I'm on a button tufted kick. An estate purchase....leaving the French bleu velvet fabric as it's in pretty good shape. This chair is currently residing in the dining room.....but you know how that goes!.....
Maybe I'll use them in the master bedroom? Still working on this room as well and can just never find the time to finish any of these projects....
Perhaps on this mantel that's in the bedroom?.....
That's it for today, I hope to be back with more news soon!

Working On....Beat Up Old Things

Hello friends....I am finally going to be home this weekend and happy to have some gorgeous South Florida weather to work in my studio on some projects that are calling to me.....

Some beat up old things needing attention to be transformed......



And an idea that I've had in my head for sometime with some ruffles and feathers in white and cream....


My shop is somewhat empty with much sold out, and I've put much of the remaining Holiday goods ON SALE. I so appreciate my customers...you guys are really wonderful and I just wanted to give thanks here on the blog!



Now....time to get my fingers nimble and the creative thinking cap on! Enjoy your weekend and I hope that you find time to do something that you love....
~xoxo~

Just a little update ~ I wanted to share my latest dressform with you that I mentioned above and I hope that you like it....
