My Image has been Approved.

My credit card is about to expire in Jan. so I decided to create a personalized one. I uploaded one of my images from the tropical summer wedding I did this year and decided to share it with any other Capital One Visa card holders. So if you also want to create your very own personalized Visa card, the Tropical Bouquet is available. Enjoy, Heidi

Harry has the best junk.

My good friend Harry has an Estate Sale business and the best Junk Store in the area. I asked him if I could play around with some of his stuff and set up a table scape along with a fab flower centerpiece, shoot it and share it on my blog. He loved the idea. I got this far and couldn't resist. The flowers don't come until tomorrow, I'll just have to take more pics with the flowers later. Everything on the table is for sale except the mirrors, they are mine(I have an addiction).
Email me if you would like more info on an item or even to purchase.

Exposed Beams. Exposed Life.

You know I have a ceiling obsession, so here are more rooms with exposed beams. I have been collecting these images (there is more but theses are the best) for a few months now. It looks very promising that my husband and I will get to move his grandmothers house out of the city and into the country. Now when this happens I will let you all know every interesting detail, but for now it is all in the dreaming stages. My husband has his name in the hat for a job that is a golden opportunity for him. Australia, you my pretty will have to wait a little while longer but you are not out of the picture I promise. The little house has sheet rock ceilings and walls with wood floors, kinda boring for me so I plan on adding beams to the ceiling for character. You can see what I am talking about if you look at these images and imagine if they had no beams and they were just stark, plain white ceilings.
I can't belive it but this is my 200th post. Enjoy, Heidi

In Texas (maybe Australia as well) there are 2 weeks of weather perfection in the Spring and then in the fall. We are having that now, Hallelujah!!!!
Here are a few more songs I never tire of hearing.
Hope you all have a perfect weekend. Heidi

Meet Romeo.

We had a great weekend, almost exactly the way I imagined it. My acid reflux let me know that I have to lay off the vino and my little boy learned not to immediately stuff a marshmallow in his mouth just after he blew the flames off of it. Heartburn and burnt lips, other than that it was so far the best Halloween we have ever had. Here is our cat Romeo posing next to an arrangement I did on Saturday. Enjoy, Heidi
