Happy Weekend

This Sunday The Emmy’s will be on, and I will be glued to the TV set to see what all my favorite TV stars will be wearing.  Maybe one of these dresses? I think J. Lo already wore this one to the Oscars, but it’s sooo pretty, I thought to post it anyway

These dresses are works of art.  Which one do you like most?

Sunday at the flea market

Sunday I spent the day at the Santa Monica Antique and Collectible Market.  It was a beautiful day and the shopping was good.  Here are some of the things that caught my eye.

Love the turquoise dresser, turquoise is color of the yeas.  It’s in good condition, and the price is fair……..

I also love these old drapery rosettes, we can use them as hooks to hang bags, or towels from…or as knobs on the right piece of furniture……

What a great re-use of old outdoor furniture, some new cushions, and the rust adds so much character

Remember the old singles, my kids have never seen one

How about a game of golf or maybe tennis??

Here’s what I came home with

These small mother of pearl and French horn caviar spoons, they can be used for tea, sauces, salt not just caviar, but I might want to try them with caviar also

This Lovely silver box; it’s perfect for keeping small Hors d’oeuvre forks in and I can display it on my coffee table

There was so much to see and take home, can’t wait to go back next month……..

Doors, Door Knobs and Hardware

On my recent trip to Italy I was fascinated by door knobs.  I probably took 200 plus pictures of every door and door knob we came across.  I’m going to share one I liked in particular.  It has a rock n roll quality that I admire, a little edgy and different.  Very inspiring to me I hope to be able to inject a little bit of this in my creative design work.

What you think?

What inspires you?

Asissi

Last week I had written about our visit with Michael Laplaca in the beautiful picturesque town of Bettona in Italy, close to Assisi, where we spent a day. Assisi a mid-evil town is the birth place of St. Francise, and home to the Basilica of San Francesco d’Assisi decorated with frescoes by numerous late medieval painters from the Roman and Tuscan schools, and include works by Cimabue, Giotto, Simone Martini, Pietro Lorenzetti.

A Week in Umbria

MY dearest husband and I have finally landed in the most wonderful Bed & Breakfast in Umbria. Well, it’s actually so much more than a B&B — it’s an amazing PALAZZO our friend from New York has restored. We just got here so we’ll tell you more. Right now we’re just blown away and need to get ready for a fabulous dinner Michael has promised us. Stay tuned.

Happy New Year

As the new year begins I look forward to all the projects and goals I have planed. The best way to achieve goals is to write them down and to say them. it’s also great to share our goals with others so we can be held accountable, and maybe inspire someone else to do the same, much like Maria at Color Me Happy has done for me. Here are some of the goals I have set for the year 2010.

One – To live my life,intentionally, powerfully, and in the NOW

Seven – To eat better and exercise more

When I reflect on the last year, writing this blog has brought much joy to me. I have learned, enjoyed reading, and commenting on the many many blogs out there. So I thank all my blogger friends for sharing your news, tips, and stories. You are truly an inspiration.

Have you written your new years resolution? why don’t you try it and attach images to your list it’s much more powerful
