I hope everyone is having a great Monday!! I have had several requests to see more photos of my home so I thought I would start with a few of the outside.  Since everything is starting to bloom beautifully I wanted to post some of my backyard.  I will continue to show more photos of the interior, I am having wood floors refinished this week so the interior photos I will take next week.  

This is standing on my back terrace area looking off the the left.  Sorry my dog Beauty turned the wrong direction right as I took this photo and I was in a hurry so forgot to take another one!

Another photo standing a little further back

This is looking off to the left a little more towards the creek we have that runs through our property and the fire pit area

My knock out roses are doing magnificent!! 

This is standing back and looking back up to the left of the house.... the pool is off to the left as well. 

This is standing back and looking off to the right of the house!  That is my sweet housekeeper Dalila walking one of my 3 dogs, Bella!! 

This is looking into the fire pit area.  Looks like I need to clean that stone!! 

Also looking back into fire pit area

This is looking at the pool area... sorry for the poor photo it was a little cloudy when I took this and we are replanting pots so excuse the mess! 

Those were just a few photos of the back, there is another side to the back behind the garage area that has a large play area plus a trampoline for the kids.   I hope you enjoyed these! I will continue to post more of the front and the interiors through out the weeks to come.

A touch of Gold

Hi everyone!! I am so sorry for the lack of postings.  It has been crazy around here with so much going on, it has been so hard to find the time to keep up.   Literally the minute my head hits the pillow, I am out!!  I had a few hours this morning before it got completely hectic and really wanted to post today.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and enjoyed spending time with families and loved ones.

I  have been going through  all my design photos and noticed most all of them have something in common,  a touch of gold.  I love anything from an antique piece that has a beautiful gilded aged patina to a fabulous gold sequin dress.   I believe just a touch is all you need!! I hope you enjoy the images and have a wonderful weekend. 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Almost done!!

Well,  I have good news and bad news.  The good news is that we are ALMOST done!! The bad news is that well the back piece did not come in correct so it will have to be replaced, which means ANOTHER 4-6 weeks... UGGGG!!!! They did not mottle it enough! Also, they have to come back and put a beveled edge around the back piece anyway.   I went ahead and put my sconces up because it was going to take so long.  Oh well, if this is the worst thing that happens we are all good. 
The first photo I took is of the island up close because in the photos it is hard to see the mottling.   Also, sorry for my blue duct tape hardware, still waiting on mine to come in...!  

                                                      I hope you enjoy!! Let me know what you think! 

This is what is looks like close up!  Could not get it to show up in photos! 

The back piece has to be replaced...UGGG!!! They did not get it mottled enough :(

The back piece also has beveled edges that will be finished around it.
Sorry for the poor photo .... could not get a good angle with the right light, but at least you get the idea!

These are my beautiful antique sconces with the Venetian mirror, they match my Chandelier

The Venetian mirror on the back wall is just sitting on the counter top, I am trying to decide if I am going to hang it between the sconces.  

Still decorating my island top!! 

Right now the Venetian mirror in the background is just sitting on the mirrored top.  Trying to decide if I want to hang it 

I hope you enjoyed these photos!!!!  I guess it will be a while until I take the final photos , being that we have to wait for the new back piece to come in!!!
Have a great day.

Happy Monday Everyone!! I am so sorry I did not get a chance to blog much last week, there has been so much going on over here!! Today they are actually installing the antique mirror in my closet and I will update with photos when it is complete.  With spring in full force we have been spending lots of time outside enjoying the amazing weather.  I am getting excited about throwing a dinner party outside before it gets too hot so I have been saving images of outdoor entertaining ideas.  Today I thought I would share with you some of my favorites!! Have a great day!




                I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday!!
