Swan Lake



My cousin invited me to see a performance of Swan Lake! I had never seen it, and while I am familiar with the arts I am the least knowledgeable about Ballet. But the evening was lovely and I enjoyed spending time with my family. The performance and photos are haunting and lovely.

Upcycling this Vintage Vanity (Part Two)

Spackling and Sanding is essential when you want to re-paint any wooden surface. This desk has definitely seen some hard times, but spackling the holes that once held the Vanity mirror and a nice sanding, with some tender loving care should change this into a lovely desk.
The paint is spray paint - Metallic Silver!










The last steps will be shellacking and chair shopping!

Here's my cat Jade, how was interested:




And here is my cat Duchess who fell in LOVE with this sweet mouse:

#janphotoaday

I’m trying to be more creative this year and it has started off well. I have been doing the Instagram Photo a Day Project and it has given me another outlet for people to see my amateur iPhone photography and gain fans from it, as well as Etsy fans who want to know more about me. Here is a collage of January (February will be coming soon).

Happy Valentine's Day

Growing up, my Mom always made Valentine's Day a Special Day for her daughters an her. So Every Valentine's Day we get each other gifts. My Mom's favorite animal is the Hammerhead Shark and I finally found something Cute and Adorable with a Hammerhead Shark at Le Animale!



My Sister is a Camera Collector, I believe she has 4 different Polaroid Cameras, 2 Canons and 2 other cameras from her Childhood. She has always wanted a Diana Lomo Camera and I'm so happy that I found this one at Urban Outfiters.



Lastly, I ordered this bracelet at The Pink Ruffle for myself, I'm using this Valentine's Day as a Treat Yo Self Day. Actually, I just realized that everything I bought is Teal! Total Coincidence!



My Sister also got something for her boyfriend, it's a very cute sweatshirt. (They are both Cat People FYI)

Upcycling this Vintage Vanity

I a vintage vanity on the street, where unwanted items go so that people can take them. I was so happy, since I have been looking to buy a new desk for a few months! The first step is replacing the old hardware with new hardware that I bought at Anthorpologie!
