Hi my beloved blog friends!
PLEASE HOP ON OVER TO MY NEW BLOG HERE
Have you noticed gorgeous sparkly toes and fingers everywhere you go? Cora (who just turned 2) loves all things girly so, I decided dress up her little toes while giving her a pedicure. I loved it so much that her Mama had to join in the fun too! This is super easy girls! Here's how:
you will need:
- fast drying nail polish (the only kind to use when you are painting little fingers/toes)
- irridescent craft glitter (with a shaker top)
- clear polish (fast drying)
All I did:
- paint on the base color, a couple of nails at a time, no need to be super precise
- shake on the glitter
- blow off the excess
- once they're dry apply a thin layer of clear polish
p.s. the glitter can get a bit messy so, if you are concerned shake it off over a container

It's true! This past year has been a whirlwind.... What an awesome b-day celebration though. It started out with my Mom texting me at 5:37 a.m. (she could never forget when I was born!). A day filled with sweet friends and family, who could ask for more?
Thank you to everyone who made my day special!
Big hugs and kisses!

As in Ralph Lauren! I don't know what specifically it is about his designs but they literally make me weak in the knees! It never fails, to inspire me, conjure up romantic thoughts and just make me feel like I'm in totally luxury (am I gushing?).
Just look at these yummy pics of some of his interiors/fabrics. I think my bedroom needs a whole new redo. I have some Ralph floral fabric I've been saving, mix that with a little ticking, crochet bits an old quilt and maybe a flour sack pillow and I can just taste the Americana, can't you?

I thought this was such an oxymoron. Because, I live smack dab in the middle of the city. Yesterday, Cora called my attention to something outside our window. It was a CHICKEN! A REAL LIVE HONEST TO GOODNESS CHICKEN! I have no idea what happened to the little hen after she came and visited us for a while yesterday, I was hoping to wake up to fresh eggs this morning but alas, she didn't leave me any presents. I hope she comes back and visits us again soon. The expression on Cora's face was priceless and I really needed a pick me up. Doncha just love lifes little suprises : )

Last night after work, I went to my friend Shelly's house. She hosted a ladies night of shopping for jewelry and clothes. I brought my goods and she had hers. Ladies shopped, drank champagne or margaritas and of course admired her lovely home. One of the things I love most about Shelly's home is her artwork. All on loan from her Mother-in-Law Marti Beson. I just adore all of the bright colors and bold shapes of her art. Check out both of their websites by clicking on their names.

I have a new job too! Sirens and Saints is a boutique in downtown Phoenix that is a sister store to Rust and Roses. Shelly Session has been a long time friend and now she is my boss. She is very talented and I am just tickled down to my toes about the opportunity to work along side her. Mainly, there are clothes and jewelry in this store but Rust and Roses has all the home and garden furnishings that we gypsies love! So come down and say hi! - woncha?!
