Mirrored Desks

Now that I am deep into home office makeover, I'm thinking a new desk would be nice.  I have been crazy, in love, with mirrored furniture for quite some time...and what is better than to have a mirrored desk in the office!  Everything I have seen is expensive and definitely not in my budget.  I love being married to my awesome husband so I must'n shock his system with a pricey piece of furniture that I don't need since we already have a desk  that I need.  I found a few that I like but I am not liking the price :(

Lusetta Mirrored Desk is in the budget if I can buy it quick enough!

Via Houzz

This design is so pretty and very french looking...ooh la la :)  However, I think the desk is too traditional for my taste.
I really like the clean lines and pewter accent and of course the gorgeous crystal knobs.  The drawers are a bit too small for my constant clutter.

The search continues......

Candles and food...yummmyyy

We entertain almost every weekend.  This weekend, we had special friends family over and hubs made Lobster Risotto.  It was so luxurious and tasty...I could eat it every day but my waistline doesn't agree!  We dined by candlelight.....

Glowing candles, great food, and great company.....the best combination!

UPDATE....Dining Room Wall Color

I just couldn't leave the yellow alone! I wanted something fresh and chic.  I looked at many paint colors.  There are so many white and off white colors from which to chose....seriously....A LOT!!  I choose Linen-Benjamin Moore.  What do you think about the new color??

It's so fresh and exactly what I had in mind from the beginning.  I didn't realize how dreary it felt in this space until I painted the room.  At dinner, hubs asked if I changed the bulbs because it was so bright....I said, uh honey that would be the wall color! I'm a happy girl :)

More Christmas Cheer

I have a staircase that I love to decorate.  It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to see the Christmas lights and garland everywhere.

I bought this garland from COSTCO!  Hello....already decorated and adorned!!!

I also mixed a little modern with traditional....

An Ode to the migraine!

My oldest son and I are members of a Philanthropy organization and yesterday was the Mom's holiday meeting.  We exchanged gifts and had apps and dessert.  But, while I was shopping for the gift, hubs called and wanted to have lunch.  We had just sat down and I noticed I was having a hard time reading the menu.  The words had disappeared where I was looking, although I could see my peripheral.  Panic set in!  Then it was as if I was looking through a kaleidoscope.  Everywhere I looked, the lights were "dancing".  I was so scared!  My blood pressure must have been through the roof.  I then remembered my father telling me that when he gets a migraine, he doesn't feel the pain but his vision is impaired.  I realized that both of my eyes were affected so I took Advil and hoped for the best.  As we ate lunch, I started feeling pressure in my head and behind my eyes but, thankfully, not the pain of a migraine.  We went straight home so I could, hopefully, sleep it away before my meeting.  When I woke up, I felt so much better and needed coffee!!  I was taking the coffee canister to the basement when...........

I watched in slow motion as the canister hit step after step!  Shock and disbelief is an UNDERSTATEMENT!  I immediately felt nauseous and just left it on the stairs. I needed a moment...actually several moments.  I made the coffee, with the 3 tablespoons that was left in the canister.  Calmly, I told hubs that I wanted to show him something.  As he rounded the corner, he said OH MY GOD...then he saw three stairs and said OH MY GOD  what the???  I nudged him to look all the way up and he said Holy &%*#!!! OH MY GOD!!!  Yep....it's best to sit and do nothing after a migraine! Unfortunately, I didn't have time to vacuum so my hubs, the sweet man that he is, the regular vacuum wasn't doing the job so he realized he needed to pull out the heavy machinery for this job....SHOP VAC!

The shop vac still didn't clean it all :(   Needless to say...the carpet is stained and now I have to shampoo it!  But it will have to wait for a few days so I can recover from the trauma of disbelief it happened!  Hopefully it will come clean!  Wish me luck :)

Christmas Mantel 2012

Christmas is such a festive time.  I love the smells of Christmas, the music and definitely the decorating at Christmas! We spend a lot of time in the family room so I wanted something special for us to enjoy...

The decorations on the garland are so pretty

Christmas White Dining Table

Christmas decorating is in full swing! I love decorating the dining room.  Seriously...I just sit in here and enjoy the space because I love it so much!  The kids think I'm coo-coo, but hey... it's the little things in life :)

I just love white and silver. It's so elegant and pretty...

Blingity, Bling, Bling :)  It's a good thing!
