Christmas Glitzs



I was at the Agoura Antique mall a couple of weeks ago and I took these pictures to show you...

The owner of the store, Maria, always decorates the entry all up in glitz's for Christmas and this year was no exception...


Can you believe its this time of year again....buying gifts, decorating and cooking....
YIKES! 




Christmas should be fun this year...
Our oldest granddaughter is now two and she gets excited to open gifts......
I'm hoping to decorate my house this weekend, but I'm not sure how I'm going to do it......
 We have an artificial tree and I would love to get a real tree this year...I've always loved flocked trees. 



I love how Maria filled silver containers with ornaments and feathers...








I loved this little bamboo number and I wanted it so bad...but I couldn't figure out where to put it...


So who is done buying all their gifts for the holidays?


Thanks for stopping by and
have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Holiday Cards



Have I mentioned that my daughter Sarah is a graphic designer? 
She designed my logo and stationary for my business and blog. 
She is very talented and her design company is called January designs.  








              Every year around this time she designs                a collection of Holiday Cards for her friend       and past clients. 
           
        This year she used vintage ephemera and                  botanical prints as her inspiration. 

She is an avid collector of all things vintage, especially paper related things.

 You can see more of her cards and on her Etsy shop here where she sells them. 

The card above is my favorite. 
I love the pattern in the background.




She used a needle and thread to create the design above.
 I love the Art Deco feel!






Her photographer friends, Kelli and Brooke, gave Sarah these images to use on her cards.












Along with doing commercial work, she also is a collage artist. 

Her and her husband love the ocean and both surf.....
 so most of her collage work reflects her love of the sea.





Most of her collages are made from vintage ephemera, some as early as the 1920's!







She also sells her collage work on Etsy.








You can see more of her work on her website here!

Noir and CFC



 I save pictures when I recognize pieces of furniture from companies that I like. 
 That way I can show clients what they look like in a room...


(Blackband Interiors)


I've used  Noir and C.F.C.
They are sister companies and C.F.C. does custom work.

(Dresser C.F.C, Houzz)






(Side table Noir, coffee table C.F.C. and Houzz)









I went to C.F.Cs  warehouse and took some pictures of their products..
















They were working on this dresser and it really looked like an old piece.





I love the paint effect of this dresser.
















They are going to turn this space into a showroom...its probably done by now.









I'm using this table in a clients home, its from C.F.C.









I wish I had a use for this piece...it was to big...but I loved it! If you want to take a peek at the products go here

Organic and Agoura Antique Mall









My daughter and I have been going to an organic farm and buying our vegetables...
We have decided to buy organic, non GMO . 
My veggies are lasting a lot longer, taste better and its cheaper...Plus I get to hang with my daughter...










For the life of me.. I can't remember the name of these darn tomatoes...probably to much GMO in my diet over the years...But, a little fresh basil and balsamic on these puppies ...YUM!







We always have butter and garlic on our artichokes...















A trip to Agoura Antique store to buy two of these beauties for a client...they are 2 feet tall...perfect for a buffet!






I fell in love with this lamp!






This picture was a beauty!





And she stole my heart!






Dang...Isn't she cute!
 Grand babies are so much fun! 

OK...Heirloom tomatoes...I think!

Clients Wainscoting



I survived the O.R.C. and I'm so glad things are back to normal....

It was a great way to get my family room done....or at least for now! 


I wanted to share an up-date on the project I'm working on...its been a lot of fun...
The colors and the fabrics are some of my favorites....
The Ralph Lauren in the middle is for the dining room chairs and a pillow for the sofa...
The blue fabric on the right and the stripes are also for pillows...
The red leaf pattern will go on two chairs in the living room and the blue fabric at the top left will be for an ottoman..



The white fabric with the leaf print will be for  drapery...





This and the one below are before shots...we took the wall down behind the chair.







This is what it looks like now...we have a new chandelier coming..its from Aiden Gray...

I can't wait to see it!



The entry way piece will be painted the same color as the walls and go into the living room.
 I wanted it to look like it was a built in display area..


This is what the entry way looks like now


This is the living room and part of the entry way piece that will go against the wall....we took the doors off so my client could display items.




We added a window above this one...it lets in so much light and now balances with the other window.

New window...







Inspiration image




We are using this chair but stained in a dark walnut...almost black.



This will go on the chairs...the wood floors will start this week and the furniture has been ordered....were just hoping it will be done for Christmas..
Our fingers are crossed!
