Trying out lanterns for outside...very pretty fixture, but not sure yet
I welcome your thoughts!! I like it but think I want something more French, less Gothic
Love the final finish for breakfast room!! There is one more coat and sealer to go on, but the lime finish is exaclty what we wanted...LOVE!
Peeled back a little reveal of the floor to see how it ties in, love how it compliments the gray.

Don't you love the color?
If you are doing a bathroom, I highly suggest a showerbox cut into the wall and framing it with marble chair rails..it looks so pretty and is very fucntional to keep things out of the way
JO MALONE. You are likely already familiar with her wonderful scents, I also love the simple elegant packaging. When you are up to your ears in "house business" and every thing else takes a back seat, it is important to still try and take out a little time to do something for yourself. Shopping...whats that? One of my favorite past times has passed me by, but I love putting on a beautiful soft fragrance to give me a little lift. I like many of her scents but two of my favorites are the white tie and tiara, inspired by Sir Elton John's white scented garden, and I believe part of the proceeds still go to Elton Johns AIDS foundation. Hope they still make it! The other one I have worn for years ( don't call me an old lady) is Red roses....its so yummy and I must admit it reminds me so much of my great grandmother so it keeps her memory alive for me in a scent that we both love! Love these fragrances.....click here to visit Jo Malone.
THE HELP. I know I touched on this a few days ago the day after I saw it but I cannot tell you enough just how much I enjoyed this movie. I am not sure what percentage of it is because of my southern roots and being able to relate to much of the storyline on a more personal level versus how much is just that it was so well done, the characters so well chosen. I cried several times throughout, all tears of joy, sorrow and hope. It is that good, I would and will most certainly see it again. Didn't think it could hold a candle next to the book, but I was wrong. I hope you will see it too..if you have already, did you love it as much as I did? Emma Stone and Viola Davis in my humble opininon both gave Oscar worthy performances. And that Octavia Spencer, that firecracker of a woman certainly could be up for one too! Hope you will see it......
Well everyone thats about it for this Thursday. As I said have been so busy over at the house, haven't had a lot of time to discover a lot going on around me, but I am not complaining, anything just to get this done!! Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and I would love to know if something is exciting you this week!
