Christmas Tree Decorating & Color Palette!

Happy Holidays my friends! (yup- there’s no denying it)

If you follow my instagram you know that last weekend was Christmas for me as a Christmas tree designer for the Boys and Girls Club annual Festival of Trees fundraiser.  It was SO much fun – once I got my head in the Christmas mode!  There is nothing more like Disneyland to me than walking around the stacks and shelves and boxes of ornaments, garlands, trims, ribbons, flowers, glittery coated things, etc…. and putting them together to create a themed tree!  Total bliss!  I ended up with 4x created –  all very different from each other and fun.  Last year I heard my Mele Kalikimaka palm tree went for the highest bid so I’m hoping for another win this year.  No matter what the outcome I am so happy to support such an amazing group as the Boys and Girls Club!

The color palette below is a picture from my “Rose Gold Wonderland” tree –  the colors were insane!  If only I spent as much time on my own tree!

Pumpkin Glory! Color Palette

I finally eeeked away with my hubby to a Pumpkin Patch in Ojai this weekend! If only it wasn’t another heatwave here in So-Cal, but whatever ~ I am still loving all the orange glory to be found!  

Happy Pumpkin Season my friends!

Graduation Rainbow Color Palette

Hi my friends!  I’m coming off of a month of crazy-awesomeness as my family celebrated the graduations of both my boys (college and high school) and my beautiful niece’s wedding reception (the U.S. one since her actual ceremony was in Jamaica). It has been a big fat happy blur of activity and I think we are now ready to settle back into a regular rhythm of life, though this past month has been pretty awesome so I’m not complaining.  I love how this color palette turned out because it’s a rainbow, the perfect representation of the hope, promise, and joy I wish for my boys and my niece & nephew as they enter in to their respective new exciting life chapters. It also represents my wish for you and for myself as well:   Hope, Promise, & Joy! 

sending you light & love

Tag Sale Color Palette

This past weekend I had the ultimate treat of visiting my friend Jennifer’s ranch in Ventura to peruse her Spring Tag Sale.  Jennifer has an amazing sense of style and design and is in the midst of opening a shop that will house her vision for “home & garden & retro & anything else amazing that I’d love to buy”.  I’m so excited for her and I’ll be sure to announce more info as her plans take shape, but for now I just had to post this color palette (above) for you because I thought it was an amazing one.  These were just a few of the pics I took. There were so many nooks and crannies to preview and explore and I came home with some amazing new & vintage table cloths and tea towels, home grown lavender sachets in hand embroidered pouches, and vintage greeting card packs! I can’t wait for Jennifer to open her shop!

One more fun note … Jennifer’s husband is planting citrus and olive groves and soon they will be sharing the fruit and oil they will be harvesting to the world!  I can’t wait for that because that is my retirement dream! I’ll be watching closely and asking lots of questions as they progress for sure!  

Wishing you a treasure filled week!  Have some fun!

love & light

Beautiful Jamaica & Color Palette

I just returned from 5 blissful days in BEAUTIFUL Jamaica!  We were there for my niece’s wedding and I can truly say it was perfect every minute we were there. The weather had been threatening rain and storms but we were completely spared and only received sunshine and perfectly warm waters.  

The wedding was a dream for my beautiful niece and her now husband, and spending time with so much family (familiar and new) was a blessing beyond words.  We all came home relaxed and surprisingly not sunburned! Winner!  

We weren’t there long so we didn’t venture out of the resort area much, but we did get to do a magical excursion on the last night to swim in one of only a few in the world bioluminescence lagoons.  It was beyond surreal to wave your hands around in the water and see blue-green glows trailing your movements. It was an experience I will never forget. 

Color Palette Time!

Yup, as you would expect the colors were amazing in Jamaica!  I fell in love with this palm. This particular section of it was about 6 ft wide and fanning up about 8 ft! Completely gorgeous and I love how this color palette turned out – I’ll be using it for sure.

… and my time wouldn’t be complete without a little yoga.  The opportunity to do yoga in this spot was a dream come true!  I taught a family class the morning of the wedding at the spot where later my niece and now nephew would be married!  What a way to zen a space! A solid group of us trekked out at sunrise to this gorgeous jetty where we were lulled by the ocean waves and warm breezes as we woke up our bodies.  Heaven!
