Simple summer mantel


The other day I walked into the market
and found a bucket filled with  the most amazing 
most delicate
and detailed little pink blooms.

Random Saturday

It is that time again for randomness and ramblings.
One of my favorite posts of the week- because it is just like having a cup of coffee and chatting about this and that with you.

1. A little bit of bling


A little bit of bling in the process of being dressed with oodles and oodles of crystals.
I might be obsessed.  Seriously.
And I will share how this gorgeous girl looks next week.

Friday Crush- Summer Entertaining

I am covered in grout.
Loads of it.
Like my shoes weighed an extra 5 lbs each when I took them off last night.



BUT. A great leg workout and the bathroom is looking amazing.
  And we will have another usable bathroom again very.very. soon. 
Which is pretty darn exciting if you ask me. 

So I am sharing something simple for your Friday crush post today.
And it has nothing to do with tile, mortar or grout

Photography- Keep it simple.

There was a time  a couple years ago when I was contacted by a
magazine publisher in Europe who was interested in using one of my photos 
in one of their magazines.


First-  I almost fell over- because I couldn't believe it.
But Once I took a few moments to chill - I found the photo and sent it and
waited with my fingers crossed that they liked it.
Then...
there was the uh-oh
that changed the whole course of what happened next.
