Fall is in the air, even here in Florida, though the temperatures are still in the 90's during the day, you can see a change in the sky, the evenings are a bit cooler and the colors are more fall like, and sunsets are spectacular. I normally do not decorate a lot for the Fall Season, I save that for Christmas, I wanted to do something very simple this year since I am hosting Thanksgiving at my home this year again. It is quite apparent I am addicted to Home Goods, try to go there at least once a week. They are full of beautiful fall decorations, and I picked up just a few things. The cafe table was also purchased there, loved the wood tones, but have not found the perfect chairs yet, I still had to add a few little decorations. The chairs, I hope will be found this week...I'm determined! The tile in my dinning room is white washed saltillo (Mexican tile), and the chandelier was in the home when we purchased it. I love the style but hated the brass finish. My husband and I picked out a really pretty brown with copper undertone spray paint with the hammered effects and re-finished it last weekend. I now am in love with it and am so pleased that we didn't replace it. Though washing over 300 crystals, and placing them in the holes for them, became quite challenging as not to drop or break any...I did it. Yeah, sadly I still have the textured ceiling in our dinning room and great-room, that is one of our next to do projects! Happy fall to everyone!!!
- Desert Dreaming
- 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!!!
