Think Pink...

My favorite pinks


I love all the varying shades
it is so romantic and sweet and yes...
even sexy!

Have a great day...

I had a lovely dream...

I saw myself walking through this gate and into this room...

And then into my kitchen...hmmm
what's that ringing? 
What, my alarm clock...No!
time to get up

If only...

Enjoy the day...
these images will inspire me
to make mine productive

Guggy Girl...

It's a wet gray day in San Antonio..
NOT our usual TYPICAL sunny DAY it's still winter
It always puts me in a mood  and
as much as I love my hubby, Wayne and son, Jacob
I tend to miss my daughter, BriAnna the most
Darn...I thought I had this "empty-nester"...
 missing my kids, wanting to bug my kids, feeling left out of their daily routines
"thing" sorted!

Pacific University RHA Prez

so...I'm sharing with whoever happens to read this
On days like today
I immerse myself in housecleaning
I AM A LAZY homemaker, so this is a BIG deal
and will even tackle the garage in search of goodies
I may find a few things and list on my Etsy site
make a bit of cash
that always cheers me up!

Have a great weekend!

Giselle Santa Monica...

Holiday Photos by Venece
Lori Innes
 I get excited when my found objects
catch the eye of an established shop owner
such as Lori Innes, jewelry designer and 
1306 Montana Ave 
Santa Monica, CA 

Photos: Giselle Santa Monica Facebook page
custom, new and vintage jewelry, clothing, art, and accessories

It makes the hunt for vintage pretties
more rewarding for me
knowing the objects Lori selects
will be offered
at a highly regarded boutique
and by a
well-liked and respected lady...

I got a little surprise in the post today...
I wasn't expecting it 
which made it extra special!


A darling handmade card...

My dear friend, Diana
favored me with one of her creations

A long distance hug which made my day...

Happy Valentines Day!

Are ya'll ready?

Hey...hey... all you love birds
tomorrow is V-day

I know...I know...
prices are ridiculous on flowers
and chocolates!

But because...
we dread "that disappointed look"
 on the face of our special someone
do try to plan a little something wonderful
(but don't exceed your budget just to impress!)

gift idea: vintage tin filled with sweets & gift coupon 

be creative in your gift selection
(keep it simple and sweet)

 Enjoy the day...
remember that just being together
is the best gift of all!

Waiting for Spring...

I just returned from a trip to California and Las Vegas
wonderful weather with sunny skies and warmth
mostly warm and sunny
(I had to borrow warm clothing from my sisters)

I wasn't prepared to return home 
to freezing temperatures...

I am so ready for Spring!
