Monday Mantra


Whether it be changes within work, relationships, lifestyle, friendships – absolutely anything – you will never see the changes you want manifest if you are not willing to make one yourself. Progress is impossible without change.

Photograghs or it never happened


Dipping my toes into photgraphy is one of the most fulfilling things I have done in my spare time. I am learning on my own by reading, observing and listening to advice.

I am figuring out the preset game and the best editing tools out there. Right now I am using Light Room by Adobe Photoshop. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am using our old faithful Canon EOS 20D. It takes amazing photographs and is quite easy to use. Someday I hopefully will be able to upgrade to a more recent model.

Looking forward to documenting all the beauty around by slowing down life a bit. Photographs or it never happened!

Fresh Details


I absolutley love fresh cut flowers throughout my home as well as placed around my backyard.  I love using mason jars, funky vintage vases and galvinised buckets to arrange them in.

Before yesterday I have purchased flowers at our local grocery store chain which are typically pricey for a mixed bouquet and often not in the best condition. My new favorite place to buy beautiful fresh cut flowers is Trader Joes. I bought three bouquets and one filler for $16.00.  I frequently shop at Trader Joes and never have thought to pay attention to their wide variety of flowers, plants and herbs.

So the next time you are looking for flowers for your home, backyard, a gift or even a wedding stop in your local Trader Joes and pick some up.

Spring Thaw


I spent my Spring Break giving our bathrooms a facelift. What a difference a little paint and new dècor does for a room or three.  I chose a fresh color to brighten up dark and dingy rooms and added some splash of color with artifical flowers.

I found the wall dècor and flowers at Ross, Marshalls and Cost Plus World Market for such a bargain. Valspar paint in Spring Thaw from Lowe’s.

I added a new planels for our bathroom downstairs to hide our washer and dryer. I love the crochet detail on the bottom. The lantern adds some light to a bathroom without a window.

Looking forward to freshening up my sink area next.

As always, thank you for visiting my page.

Happy Spring!
