CHANGE WON'T COME FROM WASHINGTON...IT COMES TO WASHINGTON.

I'll Take It...

I luv up lights on a house...I'm thinking about getting a couple from Home Depot to uplight my terrace...lol...lol.

Look of the Day

Photobucket
A perfect play on patterns colors and textures...I enjoy dressing in a way that makes people go, "what is she thinking?" I would definately rock this outfit.

Missing summer already...

Photobucket
Summer is almost over and Mini and I have not been to our favorite place in the world...the beach. We live in NYC and less than 20 minutes away from at least 4 different beaches...Summer is just too fast...Maybe we can get there in the fall with a sweater over my swimsuit...I heart this one by trinaturk.com

Exhale...

Photobucket
Luv...looks like two twin beds pushed together with loads of white pillows...the rug is painted on the floor...So clever...Decorating doesn't have to be complicated...just imaginative...is that a word? Of course the view doesn't hurt...exhale

Not My Work

I'm just looking around the web for inspiration and found this...

DNC National Convention

Photobucket
...So, I'm watching the DNC convention last night...and heard Mr. Bidden's speech...I'm a real political junkie but, I don't know much about him except that when he was running for president he was the most entertaining candidate...always talking loud with nothing to say...I learned last night that he's from Delaware and he travels 4 hours each way by train, leaving D.C. for Deleware every day...He started doing this when a tragic accident made him a single father...WOW! I'm inspired...any man with such passion for his family is a man after my own heart...Welcome to the ticket...

Photobucket
I luv the photo and the framing...

Nice...

This is a typical layout of an older home here on the east coast...I love the way it was modernized without tearing away its character...

Today's Musical Selection - Robin Thicke, Magic

...Mini and I have a new dance till your silly song...They could play this song in the club for 2 hours and I wouldn't care...I heart it...it makes me happy...Turn it up...turn it up...turn it up...



...I think it would be the perfect song to play at the DNC convention after Obama's speech...What do you think? The message is.."I got it, you got it, we got the magic touch"... inspirational.

She makes me proud to be American...This is who we are.

Oh, la, la...luv

I see old laquer dining sets like this in many clients homes and the first thing I think is, "get rid of it." But, hold on, wait a minute...I need to blink and think again...

Good Morning...

Photobucket
...just taking a break from my morning...Mini is still a little under the weather...we made a pit stop to the doctor's office today to do more blood work...we should have the results tomorrow...tomorrow is also our monthly all day clinic visit...Not looking forward to it...So I just thought I'd cheer myself up with some flowers.
...I've just noticed that I haven't created anything in a while...not really inspired lately...When I get a minute I'll blog around for a little inspiration.

Luv-Lee

...this is why I can't get my room done...too many beautiful ideas floating around in my head...Love...love...love.

D.I.Y.

It can be difficult to hang items with pre-drilled holes like the cups below...I learned a neat little trick that you can use to hang pictures, shelves or almost anything perfectly the first time...

Photobucket

Photobucket
1. place a piece of tape across the back and mark the holes...

Photobucket
2. remove the tape and place it on the wall where you would like to hang your item...You can use a level across the top of the tape to insure it's straight...

Photobucket
3. Drill you screws into the maked holes in the tape...when done remove the tape from the wall...

Photobucket
4. Presto, the object should hang just perfectly form the mounted scews...

Mini's New Room

Photobucket
I used the colors in the painting over the bed for inspiration.


Photobucket

Photobucket
I made Mini a little glam station ...

Photobucket
I decided the computer/study area should be less distracting...I used chalkboard paint over the desk.


Mini is home from camp, where she spent two days in the camp hospital hooked to an IV anti-biotic drip...she had a temperature of 103...UGH! Mini being the trooper that she is didn't complain, she just kept it moving and had fun when she could...The camp is called the Double H Camp and is one of the camps run by the actor, Paul Newman...It's a free camp for kids with life threating illnesses and it's amazing...everything the kids need medically and for recreation is top notch...So the next time you pass the Paul Newman dressing in your supermarket pick some up, it's really helping a lot sick kids to just be kids...I spent a few days working on Mini's room makeover to much success, she loves it...

Like the wall color and the pops of white...

In A Perfect World

Photobucket
In a perfect world I'd wear this top today...Mini went off to sleep away camp yesterday which means I have 6 days to finish her room makeover...I'll be running around to Target, Ikea and Whole Foods...this top would be so cute to wear while running around...I rarely look this cute when doing errands, but, as Mini says, "in my mind I do..."
