La Plates – personalized melamine plates

You know how much I love my initials!!!!  I am thinking that a set of these plates would be a great addition to my already large collection of black and white dishes!!




This one  below is available in black also.  I think that it would be the most versatile for me.  I could use it for serving cookies or treats at my tea parties.


These melamine plates are available from La Plates and can be personalized with any letters you like.  Check them out!

I love the new Orla Kiely Spring/Summer looks!  They are so vintage inspired.  Her dresses are my DREAM!!!!  I can’t wait to hang one in my closet!  Her target line is very nice but doesn’t compare to her clothes!  I may have to buy some dish cloths and make a skirt!

Ballard Inspires Again!

Peaceful and glamorus cream and blue


Doesn’t this room say peaceful and glamorous to you?  I am inspired by the calming blue and cream mix and the adapted cheetah print using tan and blue.  Ballard Designs is such a great resource for my decorating style.  I love the ottoman used as a coffee table and the books in the middle remind me that that is an option for my sitting room.  I moved my zebra ottoman in the sitting room with the mongolian lamb fur pillows.  It really makes it like a glam lounge.  I will go in search of some books to put in the middle to serve as a tray for something decorative.  It is such a stormy day with tornado watches and rain….it is a day for decorating!
