A couple of years ago, I came across the ugliest pictures ever.  I mean…I am sure they were quite the rage, at some point in time…maybe.  But, even though the fake paintings were blinding, all I could see were the gorgeous champagne gold and white distressed wooden frames around them.

I love the new { slash-old-and-always-because-it’s-gold…lets be honest } trend to adore all things… Read more »

    There are lots of fun things about what I do.  But, one of my very favorite parts of my job is being able to repurpose furniture and vintage items into one of a kind statement items for weddings and events.

BUT, I would have never worn red lipstick. You know all the cutie pie girls with their fun spunky hair, and their cute bangs, and maybe their bun on top of… Read more »

I was gone this past weekend, and as I pulled into the driveway I see my sweet girl of… Read more »
