Intricate Details

Love all the delicate details in this space...the ornate lighting, the wall detail, that door!  It all seems very girly and feminine, two things I LOVE!
Hope your Wednesday is lovely...

I have a serious problem...and I'm not afraid to admit it.  I do not like dark rooms...there, I said it!
Maybe that is why I love this room so much...look at all those windows!!
Hope your weekend was great...live well!

Wish List

As summer slips into fall and fall into winter, each morning I am reminded that I desperately need to refresh my wardrobe for the upcoming season.
I usually try and carefully pack away all my sweaters and jackets each spring, and I love changing out my closets each season.  I love finding that favorite piece from last year that you forgot about.
This post however is not about that....this post is about my wish list...enjoy!
 a to-die-for beaded dress for your holiday party....

 a Marc Jacobs watch...any color will do!
 Not sure if I should wish for this chunky sweater, or for her behind :)
 another beaded dress...this one sleeveless

 leather anything...love this swingy mini
 winged eyeliner...always a classic
 tone on tone beading...subtle but fantastic
 statement jewelry...for my wrist, finger, hair, etc!
 glowing skin...
Hope you have a wonderful Thursday...would love to hear what's on your wish list!
live well....

A lovely shade for fall don't you think?  A litte moody, a little mysterious, but plays well with others...Somewhere between a navy and royal, there are many, many variations of this beautiful color....
Indigo is a color named after the blue dye derived from the plant Indigofera tinctoria  and it was Isaac Newton who first introduced indigo as a spectral color. In the mid-1660s, Newton bought a pair of prisms at a fair near Cambridge.  He experimented by shining a narrow beam of light through the prism thus producing a rainbow-like band of colors, indigo or "blew" being one of them.

Its fall break for my children this week, and I'm so disappointed that I didn't plan anything this year.  It just seems that the days, weeks and months fly by so quickly! 
I have decided that I will plan a surprise trip for Christmas this year.  I want to go somewhere wintery and new...not the typical tropical getaway that we normally pick. 
I love this photo above...I can imagine wandering the streets of Lucerne, Switzerland with coffee in hand, so romantic!  Those swans are truly magical!
Hope your day is beautiful!

Busy Day......not really

Despite my best attempt at being on task today, it seems that I didn't get nearly enough done.  I had a list (which I have begun to make each night) of what I wanted to accomplish.  I woke up early, did all my normal morning chores....kids, dogs, beds, laundry, etc. etc. etc. (tired already)
I had a few work details to finish up and then I was going to attempt to organize my home studio, but I kept getting distracted and the next thing I knew, it was time to get the kiddos and all the other stuff that goes along with my afternoon chores....kids, homework, dinner, wash uniforms and yucky sports stuff, etc. etc. etc.

So now, I think I will waste the remainder of my day staring at this beautiful chandelier and hoping that tomorrow I can be somewhat more productive.
Wishing you a wonderful evening...live well!

DIY...Inspiration Boards

Definitely on my to do list...an inspiration board.  I could be much more creatively organized if I was constantly surrounded by beautiful things...
These are some of my favorites!
 a little bit of everything....

 calm, organized and serene....

 neat and tidy....
a lovely mix.....
There are so many ways to do this yourself, a super easy DIY!
No matter how you display them, the things you love will always be inspirational.
Hope you have a fantastic day!

Industrial Studio

I've been exploring the opportunity of renting a small industrial space.  I love the idea of having a workplace/studio combination.
This would be perfect!
Hope your day is wonderful, live well!
