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!!!

Redecorating weekend...

After a long exhausting weekend of my husband and me redecorating my “get-a-way” room, it was back to work today. My mind keeps drifting off to the room, and how I can’t wait to complete it. We’ve been planning on doing this room for some time now and just found the time. I will post pictures at a later date to show the progress. This room is inspired by my love for Hawaii and the peacefulness of a spa. The colors are metallic brown (Ralph Lauren’s Regent Metallic’s, in Bronze Statue, though it is a beautiful deep brown with golden undertones), and one crisp white accent wall, with accent colors of teal and orchid green. Simple lines, clean crisp décor. It is almost reminiscent of “Old Hawaii” and “mid-century modern” combined ~ the best of both worlds. Over the weekend, I purchased some new flowers and herbs to plant in the garden…hopefully; this will be done this evening. I have several large ceramic pots or various sizes and colors to place throughout my backyard, it’s a tropical (organized) jungle out there, can’t wait to share it on here and get your thoughts and ideas.
