About Me

My photo
I was motivated to start a blog by reading all the wonderful talented individual's who have blogs out there. So, I want to make this blog about everyone who reads it. My family and God always comes first in my life. I want to share my experiences and in turn, hope to get feedback and ideas from you. I love unique things, I adore anything that sparkles (not over the top though) I love decorating, cooking, gardening, photography and shopping. My number one passion is photography! To me it becomes more than a picture, it can become a piece of art, or a beautiful memory. Decorating, though I am not a professional, and don't claim to be, has been a part of my life since I was very young, and just love searching and shopping for new ideas and incorporate the old, such as Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency with contemporary. Living close to the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, and being of Hispanic heritage, I love cooking Mexican food, and love to share my authentic recipes. Though I live in Florida, my heart is in the desert southwest, and hope that my family and I will return there very soon…keep your fingers crossed that my prayers are answered SOON!!!

It's the weekend, time to relax and enjoy our beautiful beaches! God Bless the Gulf Coast.


  1. These are gorgeous photos of a stunning, golden sunset on The Gulf. It deeply saddens me that we don't know what the future will hold and I wonder if I will ever get to enjoy their beauty again. I almost got in the car to drive down today, but my daughter is driving up her instead from Tampa, wish she could bring the beaches with her.

  2. Thank you. I know exactly what you mean. I have a very hard time watching TV about this "disaster". They are starting to hire people here to be ready for clean-up, my daughter and I will volunteer when needed. I've lived here for over 28 years, and just pray it doesn't reach here, I'm across the bay from Tampa. Enjoy the weekend with your daughter. God Bless!!!

  3. You must not be too far from where I just moved from, I lived across the bay from Tampa in Seminole, but we had a home in Indian Rocks Beach for 20 years. Have you been to the blog Artfully Graced? She lives in Palm Harbor. There's a link in my sidebar and I did a post a few days ago on a painting she sent me recently as a housewarming gift.

  4. It is a small world, that is where I am located. Just about 5 minutes from the beach. No, I haven't had the opportunity to look at her page, but I will now. How long ago did you move from this area? I can tell you really miss it, but is still close enough you can visit when you wish.
