Waiting for a Sign

I had great plans for this morning. I would get up extra early and meditate for twenty minuets. Just like the show on Fairfield Iowa Opera had on OWN last night. Then I would draw for another twenty ( I really need to practice), the next thirty would be spent updating Facebook , putting at least four pictures on Pinterest, writing a new blog, and answering my E mails. Then I will work on projects till 9:45 when I leave for my yoga class....... Instead I had my coffee, watched the news and looked for a sign.

Closets from Heaven

Saturday, Christine and I went on our twice a year fashion hunt. We bargin shop, spend too much and have a really great time. She keeps me fashionable, young, makes me think about my diet, and realize just what a fantastic daughter I have. We had a special mission this trip, shopping for a friends wedding. I found the perfect dress for a friday afternoon ceramony, with a fun sweater to throw over my sholders at Anthropology. Found the perfect shoes, necklace and earings at Nordstroms Then hit a home run at Forever 21 for my clutch ( only $17.99).

OK, now the next part: I go to hang up my new dress, look around and sigh. My closet is sad, needing an update, needing better use of space. It's kind of like when I have a fresh bunch of zinnias for my table. I immediately clean my whole downstairs. So I started to research closet ideas. Elle Decor had a spread on "Best Dressed Closets" a little to grand for me. I do have a very large space, about the size of a small bedroom. This is not planed or use to it's best.

I like this closet, it's open, good natural light and I love the nude painting. Just cannot see Spike on a tufted ottoman.

I like color but this feels depressing to me.

I could never be this organized..... I would have the lid off every box.
Want to see my things.

Never could decide which to wear

Pretty, but no room for a love seat.


She does like color
Not quite this neat

Then I found it, my dream space. fun, colorful, and I could move in. This space is compliments of Cote de Texas blog. I believe it is her sister in laws. I need to meet her. I think we could be best friends or at least share jewelry.I have a passion for funky costume jewelry,and South West silver. This makes me sick with envy.
They look like my size

I am dying inside

Now I am crying

Now I am jumping off the deck... Imagine the fun playing dress-up
If the jewelry did not send me over the edge the cowboy boots will.

I only own two pairs.......I would have trouble hiding a mirror like this in the closet, may have to bring downstairs.

Now I need to get to work, or B.C. has to buy me lots of presents.

You are Marvelous

I think we all need to stop judging ourselves on the outside and look a litter deeper. Have a loving weekend.

Dreaming on Spring

Oh, My, it's going to be 70 degrees today and my head is outside. Dreaming of the day when I can....................................

Work in my herb garden
Put out my wind chimes and re-pot the lemon tree
Plan a luncheon for friends
Sit and dream, be a bit lazy
Listen to the gentle sound of the water
Breakfast on the patio
Gathering with friends

Moving furniture outside
Arranging cut flowers
Escaping in the hedges, maybe to read a book
Dine outside with lots of white lights and candles
Cocktails on a cool spring evening

Feeling the breeze on the porch
Feeling the sun s warmth
A fire pit, yes I need one

I will serve all meals outside
especially under the stars
Drinks on the porch
Thank You for coming be careful going home.

Painted Stairs

Last summer I was in a art gallery that had the stair risers to the 2nd floor painted in at least four different shades. "I love that it's perfect for the studio stairs". My studio/office is over our garage and what better choice to enter an artist workplace than color. Got busy, holidays came, made excuses and it never got done. THEN I just saw books, "I love books. Do I want this now? It's the problem when you see toooooo much, you want it all.....

Chalk board? I could write inspiring quotes each day.

Something like this was the original plan.

I think I can count.

Don't have this much time.

My customers might be afraid!

Just to much

But I do love books.
