Before the Church Bells ring....

                             There is a different kind of quiet on a Sunday morning...
                          no sounds of traffic...people rushing to get to work on time.
                                  just the birds singing ...the sun is shining and soon the sound of church bells will fill the air..
                and I will bask in the once a week sounds that only Sundays bring...xo

Summer Kitchen...

                                    Salads....fresh fruit...cheese trays....
                             iced tea...good friends...great conversations and late nights..
                                 Summer kitchens just have a feel of their own...
                             light, bright and airy....windows open wide and curtains blowing.
                            Enjoy every moment as it is gone in a flash....
                           the summer kitchen....how sweet it is!  xoox

Three VIntage Finds...

                              I cant tell you how long I have wanted a vintage rosary...not just any one
                        but an over size one...so you can imagine how happy I was to find this ....
                            I also found a very nice wire basket that "was not for sale"....I really wanted it and well....that's what long lashes are for ladies...a girl has to do what a girl has to do!!!
                               Last but far from least..i found this lovely oval mirror....brightens up the whole room...hope you have found a treasure or two...gotta love flea market season! xoox

Industrial Pretty...

                          Is there such a thing?  Can we mix industrial and pretty?
                      Well I suppose if you have a love of both looks..why not!?
                         After all there are no RULES in home d├ęcor..do what you love....right?
                             As much as I love PRETTY (and what girl doesn't) I also love the dark, well worn look of INDUSTRIAL style to..so for now my rarely used dining room has taken on a bit of each style...what the heck..its fun to change things up once and a while! Hope everyone is well and happy...thanks for coming by! xo

Modern Rustic....

                            Its been so long since I have made any changes...anywhere in my apartment. Not even sure why...not enough time...nothing new..time of year.. I cant blame it on lack of inspiration that's for sure!!
                           So yesterday I decided to freshen up my tiny kitchen...
                              its amazing really..just by moving things around you can come up with a whole new look. I am really into the whole MODERN RUSTIC feel at the moment...even with its lack of colour it still feels quite fresh to me.
                   I am also still debating new counter tops..thinking about butcher block (ALOT)..but for now the black works.Hope everyone is well and happy.    xo
