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!!!

HomeGoods...My addiction....

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am totally addicted to HomeGoods.  I admit I go to at least one of our local HomeGoods, at a minimum of 2-3 times a week.  Now, though this is a serious addiction, I don't always buy something, but I have learned that if I find something that I really love, I will buy it, because if you come back the next day, it is inevitable gone!   I just love the fact that one store has everything you need for your home...and your little fur-babies.   We are starting to redecorate a bit throughout our home, so for all those unique items, to me, there is no place like HomeGoods.  The pictures below are just some of the items I've purchased there throughout the last several months, though the mirrored tables were purchased last year.  Some of these same pieces I have found at name brand stores, at more than double the price.  The Chinese stool, is the only item I did not get there.  I wanted it in chrome, and though HomeGoods has them, not in chrome.  I found it on Overstock.com...never ordered anything from them before.  And for $79.00 plus $2.95 for shipping, I couldn't pass it up.  It arrived in 5 days, came double packed and arrived in perfect condition...I just love it!!!  Thought it is chrome in color, the photo shows it as more gold because of the reflection of the floor.  So, needless to say, I will be shopping with them again.  If you haven't gone to a HomeGoods near you...I totally recommend it, I have all my family throughout the country completely hooked and love it when they send me pictures of items they found.  Give you one guess where I'm going tomorrow....Happy HomeGoods Shopping...
