I thought I would share her works with you.
They make me smile;)
You can find her here.

That didn't sound right!
Let's not go there...
I love these modern, organic tables by Michael Arras!
Wow, these are gorgeous works and they speak to me...
You can find them here.
Michael is from Portland, OR!
Makes me love them a bit more.

Of course I'll recycle it but can I re-purpose?
Artist Charles Kaisin from Brussels is the creator
of this shredded paper chair.
My dog, Burnside would be delighted.
I came across this book that has tons of ideas
on revamping what you have and creating what you don't.
Even basic know how techniques that I don't know, like tying a tie.
Tired of wasting paper cups by getting your coffee to go?
Check out this sturdy double-walled porcelain cup that keeps your coffee warm.
The lid is made of pliable silicone!
You can find it here.
Or at New Seasons (a dollar cheaper and no shipping).
Designed by James Burgess.

With TONS of help from Kim, these images rock!
I have to compare these shots to the ones
I posted a couple days ago...
It's like looking at my 8th grade picture!

Gleason James DeAnda and it was a blast!
I haven't laughed that hard in weeks.
I had to introduce her to the BEST Cucumber Martini
at Acadia first. Sarah at Acadia doesn't mess around!
I love it there.
That was our pre-function.
The Grill was nice & empty.
We actually got a window seat. Very rare!
The view of downtown Portland on the 30th
floor is beautiful.
We got to dish about old times & new.
We were way overdue. Actually expired...
The sweet couple sitting behind us paid for our bill!
Who does that? That was really sweet!
I have to hang out with the girls in my life more-
to charge my battery. It's hard to pull away from work and family,
but this keeps me sane.

The colors are vibrant and the original artwork on each piece is lovely.
I have about 20-30!
Clearly I am addicted and you can see why.
Erin & Byron Lee are the master minds behind One Root
and you can find their work at
Splurge and the Portland Saturday Market (starts Feb 28!)
Whitney & Erin at Naturals (in Lake O) started this addiction.
I treated myself to this red pair today.
I bought the last red pair over at Lily Atelier(in Camas).
Because I deserve it.

As I blog, it's very quiet in the house because my little turkey is at Grandma & Grandpa's house in Hood River. I miss the squeals and the sounds of lil' dancing feet.
By the way, a very rare date night was way overdue!
I am missing my family in Texas & NM.
Having breakfast together & maybe some shopping therapy with my Mom was always good. I found this picture of my parents and love it! My mom is rockin' the red lips & off shoulder red dress. Watch out! Check out the chandelier earrings by yours truly.
She won't like me posting this pic but, how can I resist?
My Dad is looking pretty dapper too;)
His best accessory?
The arm candy in RED.

Pour la Victoire.
Isn't that what really matters?
I love the platform in the front.
It says, "You can wear me for 3 hours."
Now these Alexander McQueen heels say,
"I'll kill you in 30 sec!"
Maybe 45 sec. There's a mini platform at the ball
Are those imprinted toes?
That's kinda funny;)
Well in all this baby fever, I came across this awesome
Bassinet by Bloom.
I could have used this 4 years ago.

Perfect this Monday morning.
It was shot all stills and took only 2 days to film with the actors on set.

If we were in Texas right now--oops-- I mean New Mexico, this image would be reenacted. My Pops & Yed putting all differences aside and having a nice cold one.
Don't let him fool you, my Dad is really a softy.
