Today's Musical Selection - Abbey Lincoln

...One of my favorite songs ever! Ms. Lincoln's voice is so deep, moody and sexy...I listen to her after a long day at the clinic...after Mini's gone to bed and I'm chilling on the terrace...this is music that will definitely get the mood right.
...She is also an actress...check out the 1960's movie, For the Luv of Ivy...where she played the love interest of Sidney Poitier who played a hustler running a underground casino...soooo, sexy and smart...they just don't make movies like that anymore.

Design Inspiration...

...have not made anything in a while...been uninspired...until now...this is hot. Gotta make it...not sure if I can rock it...I'm way more endowed than this little girl...smile. I'll try it...it would be cool to run around in when the weather heats up...just gotta figure out how to fix the back so that a bra can be worn...if you know what I mean.

Inspiration for my new workspace...

...and I thought I had alot of stuff.

I want this room...This is so I Luv Lucy.

...the bedspread is simple yet beautiful...luv the red.

Today's Musical Inspiration


...dang, this song was playing when my alarm went off this morning (kinda ruff for a monday morning)...It just may inspire someone today...

Inspiration...

I have seen similar hurricane lanterns in many home furnishing store...always liked them, but never knew where to put them...not anymore...they look great in this bedroom.

In a perfect world...I'd be at this party this weekend with John Legend and Andre 3000...Which one would I go home with?...Hum, Andre, cute, funny, outgoing, and obviously not afraid of fashion, what's not to like?
How about you?

...window envy.

...fireplace envy.

more window envy...

...this bench has my name on it...

...this is where I will be parked this Memorial Day weekend...

Moody...

...this image matches my mood today...spent all day yesterday in the clinic with Mini for her regular tune-up...UGH! ...babies getting chemo...enough said. Got home and fixed Mini's hair, she's going to North Cackalaca with her dad and his family this weekend...she wants me to go with them...but it's just too much...I'm tired, I've done enough...It's me time.

Great Design...

Hello Monday...smile.

Yum...

...I'll just park this image here until the fall...the shawl is beautiful.

Another Score at the Dollar Store

...there I was, browsing around, minding my business when I spotted these pillow covers out the corner of my eye...there are two things I can't resist when shopping, pillows and chairs...So, I moved in a little closer because the dollar store can fool you into thinking something is good when it's just junk...and to my surprise I hit the jackpot...these pillow covers were .50 cents each...yep. File this one under, "another score at the dollar store."

Cool...

Inspiration For Kitchen Remodel

...Ideas for my kitchen, I have the white subway tile...I'm going to stick with white grout...I purchased a new white sink...I think I like the cabinet color in this space...but, I want my kitchen to be much brighter...not sure about the black counters...I may go with a lighter tan color...I luv the faucet in this picture...but, Mini has talked me into an ultra modern, shiny chrome faucet below...

sourced items for my kitchen...

...Nice

...backstage at the DKNY show...luv the make-up...especially the thick eyebrows...I have thick eyebrows and whenever I get a wax or threading they take off too much and they arch it all crazy...UGH! Next time, I'll take this photo with me...clean simple and no big arch, please.

heart...

...don't remember where I found this...but, I heart it...so organic and feminine.

...sweet

...I like this look for Mini's room too...

Inspiration

Mother's Day Update...
