 I woke up this morning to a rainy day outside... ( no complaints here because we really need the rain).   As I get up every morning  I begin to turn on all of my lights, realizing that I have A LOT of lights in my house.  As you begin to get to know me a little better you will learn that I am obsessed with A LOT of things, one of them being chandeliers.  My husband constantly says that I get up and turn all the lights on and he goes to bed turning all the lights off.  Do you remember  "THE CLAPPER"... clap on clap off?  He jokes every  night that he is going to purchase the clapper because his fingers hurt so bad from turning so many lights off at night!!  He counted one time and we actually have 42 chandeliers in our home... Crazy isn't it?   I might need therapy for that!!!  Ha Ha!   So I thought todays  post would be about beautiful chandeliers.   I hope you have a wonderful day!!
This is so elegant

Spring Fever ...

       As I went on my walk this morning, I realized that spring is right around the corner.   Living in Texas we have not had much of a winter and the temperatures the past couple of weeks  have been  perfection.  I think I officially have "spring fever".   With the temperatures being so nice lately  we have been spending  a lot of time outside so I thought I would post some photos of beautiful outdoor spaces.  I hope you enjoy these and they will inspire you to create your own beautiful outdoor space.

This is walking out my backdoors into my back yard.   At a later time I will  post photos of my home.
This is my outdoor living space... I have not worked on it yet for the spring.  I am in the process of changing out my furniture and cushions.  I can not wait to plant some flowers and get some color!
This is the perfect spring outfit for me!! I love the skirt.
