Monday's Manicure or Monday's Mash-Up???

Hey Friend! 
Glad you popped in. 

This week's mani is a Frankenstein or maybe even more of a Mash-up. 
I really am being good about not buying any new colors. So I hope 
you aren't disappointed in not seeing in new reviews. 
I'm just trying to be creative with what I have.

I think your going to be surprised at how many colors this really is!
GOSH! Love the shine in that top coat....

Okay! Here you go! 
Coney Island Cotton Candy - OPI on the forefinger, pinky and thumb
Glamour Purse - Essie on the ring finger and middle finger
All fingers got one top coat of As Gold As It Gets - Essie
and then one coat of Shine Of The Times - Essie

All topped off with a coat of SecheVite Fast Dry Top Coat.

ROSES! Roses! Always with the Roses!

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you'll recognize my little 
miniature roses from my shopping cart. 
I took a picture while I was in the grocery store.
Couldn't wait to share them because they were so fresh and pretty.

I do love me a rose and a cup of tea.

I'm not sure what it is that I love so much about 
roses really. 

I think that maybe it's just because make anything 
look fancy with out being pretentious.

I mean really.... how else could you bridge a little 
old brown crock pot
to a gorgeous antique Rosenthal teacup and desert plate.

Quips, Quotes and A Bucket List

Hello my little fluer-de-lys!
I have always loved this quote by Audrey Hepburn, and I think that
she had to be right. Springtime in Paris is something that I am sure I will do
one day.  So I added it to my bucket list. 
I know that a second trip to Paris in this life time is a stretch dream, 
and there are a lot of things that 
I will do before that happens. 

But isn't it the stretch dreams that make us achieve
so much more in life?

What about you?
Do you have a stretch dream?

A Sweet Saturday Spent with Sweet-Stops

Okay, consider yourself warned.
Lots of pictures and lots of fun! 

Last Saturday I was invited to photograph the Spring
Sweet-Stops Spring Craft Event. 

Here is the whole group... about 50 ladies participated.
Oh... and P.S. note the views in the background

These are actually the ladies of Sweet-Stops
Cindy Leech, Lin Sue Cooney and Debi Rigg 
Amazing event planners!

Using a 50's theme, they took a concept and ran with it!

The caterers
Jill Denny and Barbara Korona (Debi's mom)

The bartender, Jim Rigg, (Debi's Husband)

Lots of the ladies dressed in 50's or 60's style. 

A Vintage hanbag... Darling!

A modern twist on on a classic BLT. 
Turkey, Avocado, Bacon and Tomato

Fruit juices with Sparkling Cider

A Coke with a view?

Oh, yes! And there is always a boutique for some shopping.

And then the project. Lots of room to work.

This was an open air patio on the 14th floor.

A mother/daughter team....

A couple of the finished projects. LOVE the dots

So cute.... right?!

That's Mercedes from The Tattered Nest
LOVE her store!!!

 We used her paint.

It was held in the Penthouse of The Phoenix Towers.
Recently remodeled and originally built in 1957, it was the perfect location!

If you would like to see all of the pictures that I took, or you 
would like to know about the next event, go to the Sweet-Stops Facebook page
and like it. You'll be able to see everything that will be going on. 

I'll be joining;

Garden Variety Rose

Well! Hello there. 
Happy to see you.
I hope you are having a wonderful week!

So, I came home from work for lunch and got it into my head that I needed to 
pick some of my roses. Almost all of them were full bloom. No buds. Isn't that
odd? I think it was because it was the middle of the day maybe...
Anyway, they made my day and I just couldn't pass the photo opportunity up. 
Just thought I would share. :)
