I definitely don't have a specific store that I think has everything...I have *way* too ecclectic of tastes for that! But I would definitely LOVE to visit Furbish some day (c:
4. If you could swap lives with someone for a day, who would you choose and why?
Can I just be honest on this one? I have *NO FREAKING CLUE* who I would want to swap lives with. I know my life isn't perfect, so it's a pretty safe bet that no one else's is either!!! Although, I would *REALLY* like to hang out with Jonathan Alder for a day or two, my design boyfriend (c: 6. What was your favorite book as a child?
I still love reading this one to my little ones, it's just a classic. Sam-I-Am, I owe all my adventurous food tests to you (c:
5. If you could vacation anywhere, where would you go?
Honestly, right now I would love to just get to go home to NM for a bit, it's been a while since I've gotten to visit, and you know what they say, there's no place like home!
7. If you were a color crayon, what color would you be?
This is a really difficult question for someone who loves so many different colors...but in the end, you know it's always you PINK
8. What is your favorite childhood memory? SOOOOO many of these...one of them has to be picking cherries every summer from the huge tree we had in the backyard...and eating half of them in the process (c:
9. What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten?
Of course I'm gonna pull something from my time in Brazil...this dish called Rabada...translated, that's cow tail. And I'll just save you the pleasure of trying it for yourself, it's disgusting.
10. Name one thing on your bucket list.
Skydiving. Oh yeah. (c:
11. What is one of your pet peeves?
It would definitely have to be negative commenters...I personally haven't experienced it (I'm knocking on wood right now, but I definitely just jinxed myself), but I just don't undestand why everyone can't just take Thumper's advice: If you can't say nuttin' nice, don't say nuttin' at all!!!
12. If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?
Easiest question *ever*.
#1 Enough money for me and the fam to live comfortably for the rest of our lives (c:
#2 A fantastic tutor for the kiddos so we could just travel *everywhere* but they wouldn't grow up to be dummies (hey, it's a real concern!)
#3 An awesome clawfoot tub. I just love those things...
And in true rulebreaker fashion, I'm not tagging anyone. I'm really "stickin' it to the man" this Monday morning, huh? (c:
And all that comes with it...green grass, nice weather, couples kissing awkwardly in public places (ew), and most of all FLOWERS!!!
My mom has always had the fantastic talent of a green thumb and a fabulous flower garden...I'm completely jealous because I definitely *did not* inherit this gift. I can, however, kill anything even remotely alive that is given to me (with the exception of my children, *PHEW*! That's a relief, right?!?)
Growing up, we also had A LOT of floral fabrics around...on couches, bedding, clothing...it has taken me *quite* a while to get over the 80's version and to accept the gorgeous and terrific florals of the now...
Thank goodness because they are *FAB*:
Do you feel it in the air??? Or is February weather still holding you hostage???
Whilst I was entertaining myself during my childrens' naps the other day, I decided it had been far too long since I had visited Elle Decor and dropped by to pay her a visit.
She is always so chic and on point with everything that's happenin' in the world of decor...kind of like the popular girl in high school that you always want to know what she's wearing so you can copy it admire it. (c:
And just *look* at all the fun she's been having without me!
Fabulous little lucite/brass coffee table giving me a come hither stare...
I'm not usually a dark and wood kind of gal, but MAN, this space is just so cool...it's an old factory, too, so that ups the cool factor by about 10x...
Stripey sofa in a Parisian apartment? Why yes! Thank you, I don't mind if I do!
I'm not really sure how I feel about the puzzle piece art...it's interesting, to be sure...
My fave: light and bright with color and coolness abounding.
And a *B*I*G* thank you to everyone for their advice with my little dilemma yesterday...you will be happy to know that I decided to give Tar-jay one last go...
...and I not only found this little piece of fantasticness *in my size* (miracle of miracles)...
...but it was also marked as a "repackage" (which means absolutely nothing because it was *perfect*) and so instead of $34.99, it was $24.99!!!
SHUT RIGHT UP.
Yeah, it was in my hand and out the door before you could say "Take that, you evil ebay dealers, you!"
It's adorable, so thanks for keeping my shopping compulsions in check...y'all are good friends (c;
I am just smitten with pretty much all things design. This blog is where I post all the gorgeous inspiration pictures I find and the pictures of my own misguided efforts on my teensy budget! (c: Thanks for dropping by!
