Red, White & Blue

Have you been following the World Cup? We have. I think it comes with growing up with a Chilean father. Between the 4th of July around the corner, team USA (even though they are out) and team Chile (playing today) I am feeling the red, white and blue....And my favorite for last (this is the mood I am in)....

Quiet Time

Safety is not found in the absence of danger but in the presence of God.
We want God to change our circumstances, but God wants to use our circumstances to change us.

Christians are supposed to be the light of the world, but you can't be a light if you are not plugged in.

Dear David (Jimenez)...

You don't know me but I think we are destined to be friends. I have been stalking your website and I am obsessed with your work. Don't be scared because I used stalking and obsessed in the same sentence.....You clearly have mastered how to do unique gallery walls.
Can you come over this weekend and help me rearrange? You know how it is trying to do your own home right?

Thank you to Viera at VT Interiors for bringing David Jimenez to my attention.

Time Capsule

This picture from the November 1999 American Homestyle & Gardening by T. Keller Donovan is still as relevant today as it was 10+ years ago...I love the chairs, giant lantern, bleached finish table and the patterned natural rug.

A Sampling

The last post was peeking into the day of Anna Boyd but I thought I would share some the products she offers through Rifle Paper Co.

All products above and more HERE.

Day Dreaming

Don't you love to read how other people spend their days? I do. Especially when that person is in a creative field. Drawing was never my strong point so I am mesmerized by anyone with artistic talent. So when I saw Anna Boyd of Rifle Design was featured in this month's Southern Flourish I could not wait to read about her day.To read this article and a feature on the wonderful Paloma, visit... Southern Flourish Magazine

Whose day do you wish you could take a peek into?

Quiet Time- Fathers Day

My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline and do resent his rebuke, because the LORD discipines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in. Proverbs 3:11-12
Then I said to you, "Do not be terrified; do not be afraid of them. The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the desert. There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place." Deuteronomy 1:29-31

Happy Fathers Day

Decisions, Decisions, Advice Needed

I am currently on a hunt for a "nice" purse as my b-day gift from the Hubby. I am thinking something in the camel range but I can't decide....Here are some I am liking (not that all of these could qualify as serious contenders but a girl can dream)....
The ole back doctor said to downsize my big bags to help avoid further injury...I hate to admit it but he is probably right (Mom I know what you are thinking) so maybe something on the smaller size...
I am definitely open to suggestions. If you have seen any bags (make that small...but not too small...purses) lately let me know!
