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 d├ęcor. 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.
