While I’ve often driven by Graffiti, I’ve never appreciated it as much as I did today! Someone quite talented hit this wall and I feel in love with the design. After leaving a luncheon today in Phoenix I just had to stop and check it out.
Happy Friday Dolls!
PS I don’t condone gaffiti … but this was out of control : )

I’ve now moved on to my bedroom from my other little side projects and yesterday I decided to tackle my jewelry. I found this wrought iron rack that USED to be brown, in my garage and decided to give it a fresh coat of paint. Voila … makes a perfect place to store some of my necklaces!
These are the ones I wear most often, if I put all of them out I would need about 20 of these. lol
Pics below are what I use to store some of my favorite bracelets and rings.
Hope you’re having a happy Labor Day weekend!

This room was so much fun to do! Obviously my style, right? Deep purple walls, crystal columns and white furniture. A dream is made.
A few finishing touches still to be done, but overall we definitely achieved the look we were going for.
I’ve been discussing incessantly my mad decorating projects lately and here is another one! Since my daughter Jaime recently bought her new home and I recently moved as well, we’ve been busy bees getting the homes put together.
Two ten foot columns flank the bed for a stunning look. At the top of the columns are remote control lights, which when turned on give off the most amazing glow. The purple radiates through the crystals, it’s absolutely magical! I also adorned the window with crystal curtains to keep the effect going. And the topper above the bed is feathers, yep, feathers. Boa’s make such a dreamy look in a bedroom. And when you’re going for GLAM, why not go all the way!
Here is a pic of when we first started the room, stark white to begin with. Ashleigh and I
And here is the princess, meet Ashleigh – my grandaughter
Let me do the math for you! : ) I’m 52, my daughter Jaime is 32 and Ash is 15.
Most of the products used for this design were purchased from Shop Wild Things . Com. I’ve long been a fan of theirs. I first purchase their products about five years ago when decorating my closet. Below is a list of the products used in this design.

Mad shopping skills this weekend. All of the above was purchase at Z Gallerie. The green crystal flowers have now found a lovely spot in my living room. And the insanely bright diamond reflective vase and crystal candle sticks are for my dining room table!
How was your weekend? And decorating around your house?
Happy Monday dolls!

While taking a picture of another project, I found this was the best pic I had of the table. If you look closely at the rim of the table you will see the crystals! Just a thin line on the outer corner, just enough bling to make the table pop!
Here is another angle, although I have out my lamp project! Haha
Still haven’t found the chairs I want, as I am looking for just the right ones! Remember these below that I found a picture of? They are from the House of Dior and I am determined to duplicate them!
On to the next project, coming right up!

My two favorite purchases this week happen to be from my favorite haunt, White House Black Market. This tier sweater was just so soft and feminine, and with the draping, it made a statement. SOLD … The wedges were a natural go to, and the shorts have just enough length to sit with comfort.
I also ordered this Maxi Skirt, it’s perfect for Arizona weather. A white silk top, paired with my wedges above and I’ll have another one of my favorite color schemes to wear, white and tan. Adore the crisp and clean lines of the two, pop on my lavender Minkoff bag, and I’ll be set for the day!

After a long weekend, some of us take more time to get back into the routine of life. Lovely dinners, with champagne kisses close off this Memorial Day. And now it’s Tuesday, back to reality.
“Make new friends but keep the old ones; one is silver and the other’s gold”
Hope your Tuesday is FAB!

Luxurious linens and breakfast in bed, after fun filled weekends is the best. Just enough time to reflect of moments spent with family and friends you cherish.
With our lives so busy these days, I feel it is important to take the time for ourselves. Even if it’s only for an hour, just enough to secure your thoughts and compose your future dreams. One of my favorite times of the day is when the lights go off and all is still and silent. I usually have a candle burning on my bedside table and my drapes open to gaze at the stars. The peacefulness of a candlelit room, the flicker of the flame against darkness is so soothing.
It’s now time to blow this candle out.

Cerise Black Snakeskin Wedge
I ran across these today … while online shopping … can you stand it? Seriously fabulous …
These shoes are handcrafted in Italy by what-very-well-could-be angel artisans. Swarovski crystal embellishments and “the finest buttery leather,” make these heels fit for a princess.
About the same price as Louboutins

I have long been a fan of a website called shopwildthings.com! In my last home I purchase several glitzy and glamour pieces for my closet. Yes, closet…(long story)… anyway, for my current townhouse I wanted to add some of the same glamour, but this time I decided to incorporate the look in my living room, stair well , bathroom and on and on……
I’ve taken a few pictures around the house to give you a glimpse into my crazy style!
My interpretation, I wrapped the beaded garland around the top. This picture was taken at the beginning stages of decorating when I moved in last September. Of course several of these spiral chandeliers look amazing hung together, but in a home? I thought one looked perfect, it’s seven 7′ long and makes quite a statement.
After I completed the decorating … this is how it turned out
Then I hung beaded curtains for more glitz!
Close up of the window … to show the crystal beaded curtains
I also used crystal beaded garland to wrap a mirror in the bathroom
around a vase, I filled with flowers
I couldn’t stop there, so then I found this fabulous sticky back swarvorski crystal tape at JoAnns and you’ll never guess where I put it! Ha… yep around the top of my microwave……after all you can’t forget to decorate the kitchen…you’ll never see a rooster in my home! lol
And finally some Bling Water, to bring the look together… ah yes there’s more, but I think you get the picture……….
