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!!!

Weekend Project...

As I often do, I was on the internet just looking at beautiful photographs, and this picture popped up, I saved the photo, but clicked out of the site, so I’m not even sure as to where I found it. I immediate thought of my daughter, who is a designer junky, and has in a storage box inside her walk-in closet some of the shopping bags from where she has purchased handbags, clothing, wallets, jewelry, etc. and has them folded neatly in there, and of course, depending on the purchase, they are in a variety of shapes and sizes.  Since we just re-decorated her bedroom, and she is very particular about how it should look now that she totally changed up the design of the room, she has one larger wall that has no artwork on it, because she hasn’t been able to find exactly what she wants.  I showed this picture to her and she loved the idea.  Now we will go to Michaels and buy some matching frames in white, get her favorite shopping bags and design a certain layout of how she wants it to look, I think if it’s done correctly it could be so unique and add certain flair to that wall.    

I was also thinking it would be so cute for a little girls room, if you have shopping bags from Disney, or any of their favorite little girl boutiques, or even from Build-a-Bear.  Just a quick weekend project that is unique and fun to make.

Happy weekend everyone…hope whatever you have planned it’s enjoyable and not as hot as it is down here on the Gulf Coast of Florida…
