Eucalyptus, Agave & A Rubber Tree, Please

I love sun rooms. The airy feeling in an enclosed space is a lovely place to just relax with a cup of tea and a good book. Requisite plants give it even more of that outdoor-while-inside feel.

The plants, in this case, are from {what next} for today’s Fifty Linden Friday. These beautifully crafted plants come in either a potted or stand version and all are texture-change for the pots, and I mean, there are TONS of choices. Plain or patterned, the possibilities are endless. You can create your own virtual jungle with these versatile plants. Not shown, but also available, are lovely daffodils bursting from their own planters. Don’t miss out on these bargains for today.

The sun room is compliments of the La Cas Azul house from [Merak] from the last round of Deco(c)rate. It is fun and bohemian with just enough room to be cozy for one or two. And a perfect setting for a eucalyptus, an agave and a rubber tree, if you please.

While 2017 is still in the future for a lot of you, it arrived here nine hours ago for me with little fanfare. I chose to stay home and away from the crowds (and drunks) this time. I heard the fireworks at both 9pm (the family fireworks tradition) and again at midnight. But I was dreaming not long afterwards of a better year to come.

Here is wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2017. The future is our best hope as we try to create the best present ever.

Tuff Chick

1 Tuff Girl sm

Even tuff girls love their shoes.

I’m not a biker chick, but while prepping for a client shoot, I decided to hop on the bike and see how it felt. It felt…strange. Uncomfortable, even. But with the right outfit and hair, I can pretend I’m in Rome for a day. Hey, Audrey Hepburn did it in Roman Holiday, so why can’t I? OK, so that was a scooter, but let’s not pick nits 😉

Honestly, this photo is all about the shoes. Fringe always makes me feel like a bit of a bad girl, albeit in a princess-y way. There is just something about the feel of the fabric swishing against your ankles to make even a debutante turn into a tuff chick. These babies are from Apple May Designs and can be found at the current round of Shiny Shabby. It is the first anniversary of this amazing event and there are some awesome gifts from these incredible designers. I’m not showing the gift from Apple May, but trust me, it’s worth putting on your shoes and heading over!
