I love these mirrors that look like windows!

I have been looking at ideas for decorating and making a file for my future (way in the future) home and I wanted to share this photo of mirrors as windows.  I love it and all the black and white. That foot on the table is just great!


Christmas 2009 Decor

In Black and White, Christmas, Decorating on December 2, 2009 at 9:45 pm

This year I just put out minimal decor because we are leaving early for the Christmas Cruise and won’t be able to enjoy it over the holiday.  I put the tree in the breakfast room where we have most of our meals so we would be able to see it all lit up at night while we were eating.  It is on a rotating tree base which is so cool but I didn’t know it was rotating when we bought it.  What a surprise!  I usually put the tree in a big black urn but the urn is outside full of dirt and I didn’t want to deal with having to clean it up and bring it inside this year. I just love Christmas time!

I am wild about this Kate Spade dress!  The tights will have to wait till winter but the dress is Right Now!  It would be a great addition to my closet and a wonderful transition piece from summer to fall.

UPDATE:   I found this lovely dress at the Kate Spade Outlet for $169 and then got 50% off of that!  I couldn’t believe it!  Lucky me!

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!

Entertain in Style this Summer.

zgalerietentZ gallery has this great cabana for backyard entertaining this summer! I’ll take two!

In the Texas heat, the only way to enjoy your back yard is “under cover”!  I already have a canopy from Home depot but this one is so inspiring, I may have to make a new cover for it and trim it out with black trim.  If it weren’t for those pesky pine trees, the black and white look would be great for my backyard.  I have to stick to beige for now until those trees get taken down.  I will put some pics of my patio up soon.  I am working on a garden path right now.  Then it is on to an arbor gate.  Fun fun fun!

Monogram Love!

I need this!  A super-size monogram made from matte vinyl.  It is actually easily removable when you want a change.  This is from a web shop called Monicas-Creations and only costs $65 for the large 30″ size.  You can choose colors too!  For just $13 you can get a monogram for your car window as a special treat.

Zebra is so fun and graphic!  I just love to find new ways to use the pattern on furniture and fashion! is a great source for Zebra print furniture.  Right now they have several things that I would like.  Thank you mom and dad for the Zebra ottoman you got me for Christmas!
