Fresh Flowers from the Farmer's Market


Last Tuesday I went to Monterey, CA Farmer's Market to buy some fresh flowers. I love to buy flowers there as they are usually fresh and the prices are excellent!



I purchased these two bunches of flowers. The colors! Oh my!



Have a fabulous day!

Anthropologie Rocks!

A couple of days ago I received my Anthropologie Home Lookbook in the mail and I have been obsessed with it ever since that day! I'm sure I've looked through it a dozen times or more. Although many of us cannot afford a lot of their merchandise, we can certainly look, dream and be inspired from what we see in their stores, catalogs and website. I have been doing a little re-decorating around my home so this catalog was a welcome source of inspiration for me. 
I  live about 10 minutes from an Anthro Store (the closest store was an hour away at my former home in Texas). Living this close can be dangerous! I am always tempted to pop in just to see what's new.















I am in love with the green bee plate. I saw it at the store the other day and it's so much prettier in person. I think it's a must have for me.



Ahhhhh.....swoon! Everything about this room is fabulous!

Random and Fabulous

I've been taking a break from blogging and Instagram lately but I had time to go through a few of the photos I've taken over the last few months. I've redecorated (introducing more French decor to my home...I've missed it!) since these photos were taken and will share those photos soon.


Stock flowers and the Eiffel Tower souvenir my son purchased for me in Paris.


Stock purchased from Costco :)

A fabulous use for broken flowers


I made potpourri from the stock flowers


Relaxing on a Saturday morning with a few favorite magazines and a DVD

Loving Lavender...


Vintage dress, scarf and millinery flowers


It's been a long time since I've blogged and there have been a lot of changes in the last year. We moved to CA in December of 2013 so my husband can further his education and gain additional training for his job. Both of my kids are attending college now (in two other states) and I am definitely feeling the empty nest syndrome! Time and staying busy seem to be the best remedies. I'm still unpacking boxes and have re-opened by Etsy shop. Instagram has kept me busy and I am enjoying my new found friends there.What a blessing they are!
My style has changed a little bit in the last couple of years. It's still heavily French influenced but I decided to change my color palette to pastels and muted pastels. I really needed a change after years and years of French Country colors and style.
I decided to add a touch of lavender to my living area for Springtime. Here's a few pics from around my home. I hope you enjoy them.


The pillows are Rachel Ashwell Simply Shabby Chic


Fabulous shelf from Goodwill that I'm going to paint white

 New book from Marshalls. Only $6.99
