Let the countdown begin!!

Friday, November 04, 2011

Don't you just love great ads that are beautifully styled and perfectly lit? Terrain knocked it out of the holiday ballpark on this one. If only I was going to be in Pennsylvania this weekend for their sure-to-be-stunning Open House! Take a closer look.


I know so many of you don’t like to see Christmas décor in stores in November.  

I am not one of those people. I love seeing it! {Probably because I no longer have

a store which requires buying Christmas in July…}

So, I will share with you that I have already {unsuccessfully} scoured Sirius to find

a holiday music station. {don’t judge} Let me know when ya’ll find one!


Have a wonderful Friday!! I'm off to put up the Christmas tree!

{totally kidding}

Edie's room

Thursday, November 03, 2011

I have been excited to see the design board that Darlene and Edie created for the shared

 bedroom of Edie's girls, come to life. And I think it is just as beautiful as anticipated.




Last December, Edie's home was completely destroyed by fire. They have been rebuilding

all year and she allows us to follow along, through her blog, Life in Grace. She is quite an inspiration.




This bedroom is so sweet, but it definitely has the staying power to grow with the girls.

 My very favorite part is tucked into this little nook. This dresser is incredible.  




Great job, Darlene!

Buy this

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

I was visiting Etsy while searching for some lighting for a client and look what I found: 

Vintage. Italian. Painted Tole. 5-arm. Electrified Sconce !!

for the love...

and speaking of...

On my love meter, this is at the very tip top. I love the colors, the scale, the tiny details in the flowers..

It's not at all what I need for my client.


So, I am being super blogger and sharing it with you, lovely readers, in hopes that you

might bring her home. If you are awesome enough to purchase this, then you must

send me pics of it in your casa {I’m thinking it would look great hanging over your bed} 

'Cause if you don't, and I find out, then I will send Jack to your house WITH his cell phone

Do the right thing, peeps.


Party Rock!!

Monday, October 31, 2011










































 The dancing robot from the Party Rock Anthem video!

 What? You don't know the shuffling robot?!


Obviously not, since nobody claimed the million dollar prize


Well hold on to your uncool seats because I am 'bout to increase your cool points. 

Take a gander at the most popular dance video going, Party Rock Anthem, and

look to the left to see Mr. Robot.

{This is an edited 30 second version--you're welcome}



{You may recall that Maris also did a little shuffling in her talent show. She was the dude on the left, in front--with the hair}


You can't tell from the above pictures but the eyes light up. They apparently flashed too fast

 to get captured with the camera. This was the only picture with at least 1 blinking eye.  




The box was primed and sprayed with metallic gold paint {Krylon}. I used window sreening to cover

the mouth and the LED bicycle light eyes. Inside was a bicycle helmet {from the thrift store} that I

 glued into a piece of foam and then into the box. With the strap attached, it made the box really

secure--it allowed for maximum shuffling. The 'bolts' on the sides were empty spool threads

{painted} with the cardboard scrap circle of the eye cut-out glued on top. 

The black pleather jacket was one of my old ones that I covered lightly with the same gold spray paint.

 It worked great!    


FYI--this, by the way, is Outfit #2. I soooooo wish I could show you Outfit #1. But, I was

 told by my 13 year old that he would ‘get even’ if I put the pictures of #1 on my blog.


He knew how much I loved #1. I pleaded for him to wear it. I took lots of pictures. He knew how

 badly I wanted to share the pics with you, my blog friends, and he really didn't trust that I wouldn't.


But, should I be worried?! I mean, really, how does a 13 year old get even??


 Well, later in the day, caught him with his cell phone over my head clicking pictures

 while I was sitting on the sofa.


Me: What the heck are you doing, Jack??

Jack: Do you know how bad your roots are?

Me: Are you freaking kidding me?!  

{ FYI--I had my hair parted, in braids. Agreed, this in no way helped my case}

 So, I am keeping my roots to myself and I will simply say that Outfit #1 may or may not

have included his sisters leopard leggings instead of the jeans. {AWESOME!!}


Now to get my hands on his stinking cell phone pics...




Happy Halloween! Go get your ghoul on, Goblins!
