~A Birthday Wish~

I always told myself that I would keep my blog un-personal. I am finding that hard so today I thought I would share a little about me. Yesterday I turned 48 (ugh)! I have spent more than 1/2 my life with my husband (I him, I have 2 kids: a beautiful daughter and one handsome son (they are my life)! I do have good intentions but seem to procrastinate (got that from my dad...TOTALLY)! My dad is my hero...

The age 48 didn't really hit me too hard, I don't tend to look at numbers in that way. It's how you feel and act...right? The hardest thing for me this year was...not turning the big 48 but the fact that due to having 2 car accidents in 1 year (neither one my fault thank goodness), I feel like this is the most unhealthy I have been (yes it's caused me to gain a little weight)! My drive, my motivation, my creativity they all seem to be stagnated at the moment. I have one dream that I truly want to fulfill and I made my wish yesterday (again)!
I want to be a business owner (yes in these hard times).  It is somehting that I have waned for years...maybe this year...we will see!
Ok, well enough about are a couple of hints for some little 'ol projects I have goin on...
Can you guess what they are?
Some brightly colored fabric...

These turned into...


We will see you tomorrow with some finished projects and see if you were right...

~Hollywood Glam~

It's been a while again! I seem to have a couple of good days then a couple of days where everything seems to "fall apart"! It's been like that again lately. Is there a such thing as normal?

There very obviously is to be no sleep again tonight, so while browsing the web looking for inspiration, I happened across some beautiful pictures of "Hollywood Glam" and I must say, I love it!

Here are some essentials for "The Look":

Oversized furniture

Sparkling chandeliers

Tons of mirrors

Bold graphics

Lots of lacquer
Luxurious materials

A slight mix of Asian accessories

So let's take a little peek, shall we...

Black and White from Instyle Magazine

This room has it all...I could really fall in love with this room!

Simply glamorous!

Sooo in love with the fireplace and where do I get these chairs (think they would be a bit much for the hubby, but I heart them)!

Ok, I heart these chairs too...Love the look of this room!

Oh my gosh!  Isn't this mirrored vanity to die for?

And last but certainly not least or forgotten are some of the women who helped inspire this Hollywood Glam

The ever so beautiful ZaZa Gabor

The elegant Ava Gabor

The stunning Sophia Loren

The glamorous Marilyn Monroe!

Have a wonderful day and I will see you all soon!
