How I'd Like to Live Today

 I love this...I will make these curtains for my next bathroom re-fresh...no time soon...maybe this winter.

Sigh...Where do I start?  the floors, sigh...the rug, sigh...(Can I pull this off with the place mats I see in the $1 store...hum??) The doors...sigh...and last but not least....the art...it took all I had not to buy a canvas and try to recreate this immediately...

...Yep...I'd' be this tiny for a day and wear cool jeans like this.

OMG...this would be my kitchen and I'd invite you over for coffee and gossip.

I'd blog from here...my post would probably be better if I had a view like this...I have a pretty nice view now, but a view like this would up my game.  Do you see what this table top is sitting on?  So simple and inexpensive...not sure what the wire is called, but I know they sell it in sheets at HomeDepot...just bend it into a circle and viola, you have a desk....clever.

We all know how I feel about a bedroom with french doors that open to a patio...that would be my number two request if I were on HouseHunters...

...this living room is a gorgeous example of thrift chic...I love every piece...especially the huge photo of a smiling baby...It gives the room an updated, hip, young, feeling...If it were a painting of flowers instead...the room would have a totally different feel.

Yeah...my hair and make up goal...I'm growing out my brows as I type...It's not cute.

...Oh, I'd decorate Mini's room like this...tone on tone, very ethnic
...no room makeover for Mini this year...were throwing a party...a Sweet 16 Party...we have lots to celebrate...
So, please forgive me if the blog goes a little sweet for the next couple of weeks...I'm looking at dresses, purple decorations, listening to the party of ideas of a 16 year old girl is a full time gig and I'm loving every moment of it...You all know our story...Sweet 16 was once only a dream...


  1. Where do I begin? That art with the 3-d dress, yes, wonderful idea! You should make a couple and sell them in your shop. And yes, that desk is very clever. That last bedroom, how peaceful and beautiful it is.

    1. I DIY'd my own tie dye jeans last night...turned out pretty good...will post tomorrow...

  2. All of these had great ideas.

    I like the picture blow up and found a site on line that can do it:

  3. The wire under the desk is referred to as "Chicken Wire" (at least it is in the south:)

  4. That 3d art piece is sweeping my soul! Is there any information on the artist?

    1. Hi Paula,
      I'm really bad at linking back to the source...lazy. I can't remember where I found that piece...but, if I come across it again...I'll post it here...

    2. Hey Paula,

      I found the original source...a design firm...you can contact them and ask where the painting is from...good luck.


    3. So, I found out from the design firm that the piece is one of a kind and was purchased years ago. *sigh* If you ever decide to recreate and sell.....I want one :-)


Live the life you dream about...I dare you.
