WoOf WeDnEsDaY

A few of my fabulous blog girlfriends have started Woof Wednesdays. It is to promote adoption, and pet rescue. My dog Spencer is the furry love of my life- I don't know what I would do without her- so if you havn't found the furry love of YOUR life, it may be time to adopt! you'll thank me later....

My BFF, Spence.

For all of you South Florida dog lovers.....

I may be bias towards Golden Retrievers, but I just absolutely adore them, and have never met one I didn't like! This is Maya, approx 3 years old, and now up for adoption at the Humane Society of Broward County.

Keep Calm....

I have recently really gotten into the blog world (thanks to my friend, Pretty Ashley of smittendesign). And stumbled across another fabulous She is doing an AWESOME giveaway right now that I am super excited about, because thanks to her blog I now need to buy something else for my apt that I do not yet have....Visit her blog to enter for the giveaway! Here is the fabulous item you can win! (without frame)


I get giddy excited for flea markets, and just stumbled upon a 'salvage yard store'. They have some very cool things (soon to blog about). But my purchase of the weekend was this table for $20. Can't decide whether to leave as is, or give it a makeover.... will keep you updated!

My $20 treasure.

LOVE a good pop of color.

Fell in love with aluminum side tables at 24e.

This living room from Country Living is giving me inspiration!

Get Dressed.

My brother in law had asked my 2 sister in laws and I to take him shopping for a new wardrobe. We were to be his personal stylists- hello, DREAM! The 3 of us were so excited, we felt like we were on a T.V. show. So after completing our mission, I now feel well equipped to buy for men! We found some great clothes, we just had one rule "NO ORANGE". Brother in law's current closet consists of Gator jerseys, a variety of orange shirts/fleeces, and Lacoste's from '97. But after the makeover, he will look fabulous!

My personal, True Religion- once you find your "perfect fit brand" stick with it!

We did a light lavender and a navy in this shirt from Michael Kors.

I am now a HUGE fan of all Ben Sherman.

The last piece of the night, the 'grand finale' Ben Sherman again.

Slight obsession with this shirt from Hugo Boss.

The "compromise" piece. This shirt also from Hugo, produced a good 5 minutes of pee your pants laughing.

One day...

....... when I have a big house, bare walls, and money to burn, I will be covering my walls in Osborne and Little wallpaper. I think wallpaper gets a bad wrap of being 'old fashioned' but once you feast your eyes on Osborne and Little's patterns, you will be a wallpaper enthusiast as well!! Here are some of my faves!

'Walk in the Park' collection.

Mix of modern and traditional, just perfect.

The 'hottest' one of the bunch.

Oh look, some 'dreaming trees'.

Love the sheen of this one, and that dresser!

One day needs to hurry up..

If you are in a city with a Kartell store, take the time to stop in, learn about the construction and simply marvel.

Lots of options. From Modern Interiors.

Fashion Find

When I find great clothing at great prices, I have to admit my heart races, I feel the need to grab everything before anyone else has a chance to lay eyes on it. I had a recent experience this past week at JCPenney. Now 'penneys' is not what it was when our mothers shopped there, my sister reintroduced me, and I have found the most fabulous JEWELRY, HOMEGOODS, and CLOTHING there since! (especially during winter). They recently added the Mango line, which is a great favorite of mine from Spain. If your JCP does not have Mango yet, check it out online....
Even the visual merchandising is chic!
