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!!!

Indoor & Outdoor Lighting...

I am totally in love with all types of lighting, rather it be accent lights in ones home, the yard, around a pool/spa or beautiful crystal chandeliers in a great-room, or even a bedroom. Lighting can set a mood in any style home. Today, there are so many unique, exotic and beautiful lighting for any budget. Included are just a few that I found just searching the Internet. Though most are very "out there", and may not be for everyone, the ideas are what I like the most, let's your imagine go wild, as to what fits your personality and what you can dream of creating for yourself. Many lighting stores will also take your ideas, rather crystal, glass, metal, coloring, textures, etc., that you can dream of and make them custom to your specifications. This ensures you get exactly what you want and it can be unique to your home. As the holidays are fast approaching, many of us seem to do some type of redecorating, and lighting is a quick and fun way to make those wonderful changes that your family and friends will notice when they visit. The proper lighting can make a home so warm and inviting.


  1. I especially love the desert lighting (4th photo from the bottom)! So cool. You're right, lighting can change a room...even candle lighting.

    btw...thanks for your very sweet comment today.


  2. Kat, I'm right there with you, there is something so magical and peaceful about the desert and in that photo it just makes me feel as though I am back there. And, love candle light too, but I find it hard to burn them sometimes because some are so beautiful :)

    God Bless!!!!
