bright blue walls, yellow & lacquer red

 do you see this bright blue colors on your wall?
do you see your vintage pieces sprawled over  this luxurious & colorful space?
I do, and I have been thinking of this color for one of the guest rooms.
I also see a mix of modern and vintage pieces that will fit right in.  
A great way to welcome Monday with a dash of colors! 

Enjoy a great start this week!

dressing up the ottoman

I love the versatility of an ottoman, functional and most of all, it can hold many of your favorite finds for display.  I've owned one for years.  It was a display piece at a store and I got it half off, what a deal!  It is now in dire need of a fresh new look and I'm glad I found this photo in Pinterest.  This is exactly how I picture  my ottoman will look.  Now the hunt for fabrics begins…I will be back with the finish look.

Perfect Patio

Not bad to make a little wish for the perfect patio with just about everything and an added fusion of oriental blue and white jars.

aesthetic pleasure

My personal favorite ~ warm setting, subtle shades of pink and blue, old doors and white beams, large scale flower arrangement and still keeping the "less is more" aesthetic…this list can go on but to cut it short, ~ so soothing!

Family Time

The last two months was a roller coaster ride for me as this explains my absence in my blog. First thing, I had reunited with my grandma and spent three special days at my grandma’s hospital bed and saw her joined the Lord’s kingdom in her final hour.  I am very grateful for those special moments where I gave her hundreds of forehead kisses and told her how much 
I love her, a blissful moment-my heaven!
Three weeks after,  I attended my niece’s wedding held at a seventeenth century historic fortress, The Fort Pilar.  The night of the celebration started with the bride and groom dancing and ended with a surprise of fireworks that lit the dark sky and left us all in awe.

Now I am back and I am excited to bring you more “new” vintage items that I am sure
 you will love!

    And here are few wedding photos I would like to share with you…

Kara and Charles

Kara and my ‘apu’ ~ Hunter who announced the arrival of the bride.

Love this tablescape against the 17th century backdrop, surely a Kodak moment for me!

Unlimited 'open bar' or they call it “bottomless”
may have influenced how the night ended…

Frosting Fight

That’s me second to left…Let’s just say this is how we partook of the wedding cake 
~ carrot and vanilla cake.
