Style Feature: lighting

Light is so important when entertaining, working, playing, relaxing, reading, etc.

Style Feature: Texas Family History

A passion for decorating personal space doesn't require education or knowledge in the field.  It starts with a knowing of how you like to live and what you want to surround yourself with everyday.

My family was visiting the local pumpkin patch for some fall pictures this past weekend and as soon as we were out of the truck T made a bee line for this ancient wagon that looked like it jumped out of Bonanza.  Marc, being the rule-follower that he is (thank God for those), warned us we were treading on private property.  We then moved to the street to take pictures of this beautiful relic.  We weren't there but 15 seconds when

how did it all happen in just ONE weekend???

One thing is for sure: life is a blast and always an adventure.  The past week I've invited adventure by the dozens (up until the wee hours of the morning) so for this overview I've asked my delightful friend, Instagram, to help me highlight those moments.

Featured Spaces: french luxe with a twist of cozy romantic

I've been away from the computer a while so I've been inadvertently holding out on you.  You see a couple weeks ago I invited myself over to a friend's house (nothing new there) so I could get my fingers (and my iPhone) into every nook and cranny of her gigantic and exquisitely decorated home in Dripping Springs.

Celebrate someone...anyone....everyone!

keep reading to see why this ties into my post.....
We should always be celebrating something, at least that's how I wanna say I live each day:)

So why not celebrate someone who has made a difference in your life by doing, giving or sharing whatever comes up in your heart to do or say, for or to someone.  Let's ACT, my friends.  Act in love, by faith, with boldness.  I think we should start with our spouses or for the singles, your folks.  Here's a little tip: you'll walk away just as blessed as they are if not more so.

Let me leave you with a story to spark your creative giving juices:  read on....
