… head of the table …

6 Aug

finally the day has come! head chairs for my kitchen table!

….. hooray …..

we are going on almost two years in this house and

using make shift chairs just wasn’t cutting it anymore.

but thanks to a friend of my who’s been stashing some

antique chairs in her garage for who knows how long,

our lonely kitchen table is finally rescued.

she let me snatch up these little goodies

to actual get some use out of them.

so with a good sander, a little painters tape and of coarse, my favorite…..

… spray paint …

we turned these old antique chair’s into fresh and modern accent pieces.

check out our before and afters!!!

happy diy to u!!!

… a shower …

1 Aug

i can’t think of a better way to celebrate the growth of a new life then with a shower, and that’s exactly what we did this past weekend.  my dear friend genevieve is a little less then 8 weeks away from meeting the newest addition to her family, and if the anticipation of this little ones arrive wasn’t enough, the lovely couple has decided to keep the sex of the baby a surprise. ahhhhh!!! what a lovely shower we did have though.  the natural and organic theme was the perfect backdrop to this sweet little party.

some of my favorite moments of the day:

  1. the birthday wishes filled out by each guest, to be opened each year on the babies birthday
  2. genevieve asking how she will know what nipples to use with what bottle and when
  3. listening to everyones reactions to the impossibly perfect baby room
  4. the table scape that housed the most charming party favors
  5. all the itsy bitsy baby clothes that i can’t wait to see on this secret little baby
  6.  the nap i got that afternoon after three days of preparing what i think was the most inspired shower i’ve ever seen

our dear friends and the happy expecting couple

the charming favors i was talking about. little tree’s to plant and watch grow, as their little one grows

the spread

this is the cake i practiced for at my birthday.

thanks genevieve for letting me help you and your family throw an amazing shower,

and for allowing me to blog about it!!!

… and now, a room just for baby …

… getaway …

13 Jul

…..

there’s nothing quite as nice as a weekend getaway to the beautiful west coast, and that’s exactly what the husby and i did this past weekend. we decided last minute to get out of the vegas heat, and into the crisp cool california air.  i will say though, the husby probably had an ulterior motive,  he wanted to visit a couple of motorcycle and scooter shops in and around LA, and i’ll use any excuse to getaway for a few days. we stayed with one of my oldest and dearest friends, julia and her husband.  they are always so kind to open up their home for me when ever i’m there and for that i am grateful. thanks friend :)

we spent a day in los angeles, enjoying the local farmers market, checking out motorcycles and visiting a museum. giuseppe made dinner one night while i taught my friend how to make my moms famous chicken cutlets. we also had some delicious meals out at some of my favorite california restaurants. we spent our last day hanging at the beach, bathing in the sun, sooooo nice.  we couldn’t have asked for better weather or for more fun, in the 3 days we spent there.

here are some pics of our little adventure…..

my friend julia

check out her pretty braid

husby’s dream bike

that’s julia’s dog “greta bear”

it took me forever to get him in this water. he’s use to warm water and no waves.

happy friday!!!!
