that we’ve lived in our house for almost a year now and I want our living room DONE! We need a cocktail table, sofa table, new lamps, new chair of some sort and odds and ends. I want it done in one month… Not sure my hubby will be ok with this decision since he pays most of the bills and we’ve been on operation save lately (not sure if I was cc’d on that memo). To start off the room I want this…
Daddy went out of town this past weekend, so the little one and I got to spend some fun time together.
It has been a full week since Coachella 2010 wrapped up in the desert of So Cal. I had not been since 2006 and boy has it evolved! First off…HOLY crowds batman! I could not believe how many people they now let into the venue. Back when I was going every year…2002-2006…the crowds were around 80,000 people. Now, from what I heard on the radio, the crowd is 200,000+!!!! Yikes! Let me tell ya, it felt like it!
With the artist passes we could not only go into the upgraded VIP area (which people pay dearly to get into), but we could go into the” no access for anyone normal” area! This area was where the bands had their trailers, a lounge area was set up for celebrities and the bands, there was free alcohol, we could go anywhere backstage we wanted to and we got AMAZING parking. I don’t think I could ever go back with just general admission again. I’ve tasted the good life and it is sa-weeet!
I’ve decided I am going to start a monthly posting called “A Few of My Favorite Things”. This will be a collection of things that I’m loving at the current time. It may be clothing, food, music, home stuff, whatever… But it will always be new and different. I might also ask my fellow blogger friends to guest blog their “favs” to make it fun and interesting. So let’s kick it off with some things I’m crushing on right now….
I spotted this line in one of my design mags recently and immediately set up a trade account with them and got samples. Once I got the samples I was in AWE!!! So fun, so pretty, and so unique. I’m considering using the green tile fabric and the aqua and green medallion fabric on the lower left for pillows and/or to recover an accent chair in my living room.
The fabric is designed by Liz Galbraith and is hand blocked. They also do beautiful custom rugs and wallpaper!

The little one and I spend many daylight hours ripping out overgrown plants, pruning roses, and potting herbs and ferns. Not everything is successful, but it is my little way of relaxing and taking in the sunshine. My little girl just likes the chance to get totally dirty….since mommy is a bit of a clean freak!
