Take Me To The Ranch...

Ranch style homes I adore. Why is it that "most" (not all) of the new constructions leave out the charm that these homes ooze. I love driving through the neighborhood with all of the mature trees, and houses full of character. Here are a few homes that caught my eye.

Unique Hotel...

Recently my husband has been traveling to Austin Texas for business. I have always wanted to go and have yet to get to. I have heard how beautiful it is. Well, in hopes of traveling to Austin soon I was looking for places to stay when I came across this unique hotel, if that's what you want to call it, Saint Cecilia.   Check it out.

Should you?

Could You?

Live in this...
Or would you get lost...

Attempting To Decoupage...

My first time to decoupage...
And this is how she turned out.
 I had this old computer desk and cut the legs down to a kid friendly height.
I lightly sanded the whole thing.
Then spray painted in a white gloss finish.
Purchased a cute scrapbook paper and some Mod Podge.
Applied paper with Mod Podge.
I would have like it to be a bit less seamless, but for my first time... It's okay.
Now it will go into the kids room. 


I have been wearing Bare Minerals for about 6 years now, and this evening while watching TV saw an ad for liquid foundation. Which made me wonder...
Does anyone still wear liquid make-up? 
There are so many brands of mineral make-up these days. Do you have a fave?

A Decorators Oath...

Every once in a while you come across something that will keep you in line. And today while doing my daily blog reading Lavender and Lilies was helping to decorate a fellow bloggers apartment. In doing that she posted an oath I would like to share with you.

Lavender and Lilies Oath for Decorating

"I will furnish and decorate my home slowly and intentionally
with items that I love and items that I can use for a long time. I will not buy
items to simply fill the space. I will not be afraid to leave portions
empty until I can find the pieces that I love and that will carry me
for a long time to come".

Kudos Jessica!
 That will keep me in check. Love it!!

And since no post is complete without a photo, here you are.

Fab Finds...

If I were able to have a clutch instead of my large carry all, this would be it. So pretty with it's yellow linen and dainty applique flower design.
