Retro Dinner Dinning Room


Here's a photo of my (almost completed) dinning room. I still need to build the other two chairs and purchase some ceramics for the center pieces that I commissioned from an artist friend of mine. Other than that, my apartment shopping is done! It only took me six months. The retro table and rug are  from an antique store in San Juan Capistrano, the chairs are from Target, the basket is from target, the sugar container is from Germany and the butter tray is from an antique store from Orange County.

Balboa Park


If you are looking for a lovely romantic walk with great sight seeing and plenty of museums to visit, I suggest going to Balboa Park in San Diego! These are just a few of the photos I took there. We had a great time!!

Van Gogh's "Self-Portrait"



I was please to make it to the viewing of Van Gogh's "Self-Portrait," 1889. I have always loved Van Gogh and feel this closeness to the artist through his self portraits. His intense stare and masterful forceful grip of the palette. To learn more, listen to this podcast, here.
