Home Sweet Home - Tour -

Our house at the moment has very different decor styles. We have complete OPPOSITE tastes and likes so trying to mesh everything together can be difficult.  A few of my favorite things.......

Pinup coffee table book from Alberto Vargas. One of my favorite artists. The iron book stand is from some antique shop we stopped at on one of our drives.

iMac. Paintings from Michael Mahaffey. I picked these up while living in San Diego at the local frozen yogurt shop in Hillcrest. I fell in love with his work at first sight. See more of his work here. Table from Tj Maxx.

I found this quote on Pinterest quite some time ago. When I moved to VA my aunt sent it to me! It took almost a year for me to put it up. I found some old wood planks from fencing, and this is how it turned out. -- Patting myself on the back --  

Pepsi -- defiantly not my vice but it is K's. I picked this up for her at another antique shop called the "Pink Elephant". Behind it is a super old wooden level that belonged to her grandfather. 

K's grandfathers military honors flag. 

Cali -- our second born -- 

Just a little gift from NY.

My all time fav show !! So of course I had to have this print. French toy advertising.  

Mirror Mirror On My Wall..... re-painted by me.

Entryway. Key keeper. 

Wakeboard bench. I ordered this for K a few years back. Little did I know it would be in the house.... {wink} Can't wait for that deck on the lake .... it will look perfect! 

Dresser topper. I have yet to find the perfect things for "legs" so mason jars will do for now. 'T' displays made my me!

My most cherished two loves. A picture of my grandma and I on my birthday and the teddy from her. 
"Contraband" box.. another gift from NY. My newest edition thanks to Tj Maxx.. Jonathan Adler "dolls" pill box. 

Buddha in my washroom. 

Cake stand gives a little extra space.

Every beauty lover must have her tools.

Thanks for joining my tour. I would love to read your thoughts... feel free to leave comments! {smile}

6 Random Facts About Me

ONE: I hate soggy food. This includes cereal! It has to be crunchy the whole time so granola is my fav. I only use almond milk --original--

TWO: I went to a private school from second to sixth grade. They taught French and Latin. And no I don't remember much. ......... Je parle fran├žais ..... 

THREE: I have 8 tattoos.

FOUR: I love anything coffee flavored! yumm yumm 

FIVE: I LOVE LOVE 80's & early 90's movies. .... Pretty woman, die hard, top gun, house sitter, overboard, dirty dancing, the karate kid, flashdance, the breakfast club, mannequin, back to the future, "like hello" clueless "duh", empire records, Thelma and Louise.... Okay seriously I could keep going but I'll spare you. 

SIX: It's possible I may be just a little OCD. Everything has just that perfect place (even if it's a mess, it still has to be perfect) I have a thing about things being even numbered .... Notice it's 6 and not 5 facts…

Star View Vineyards

After flying my mom out for a visit during this thanksgiving week we checked out a local vineyard. Not exactly what I was expecting but they did have good wine…. and after all thats the most important part! I thought of it more as a bar setting. I was hoping for chic tables and decor, not so much vinyl tableclothes and 80's convention chairs. Overall it was a cute place with lots of character and really fit into the town's vibe. So a chic styling would really be out of place anyways. Its always fun to experience new places and surroundings. 

-- FYI it was so freaking cold out!! 30 and colder with the wind chill --
