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!

Merry Christmas Color Palettes!

 

Whoohooo!

It’s Christmas time and I am SO looking forward to some relaxing fun with friends and family! It’s been quite a year on many levels but right now I just want to focus on joy, peace, and love and the spirit of giving this Holiday Season.  One fun new thing I got to experience this year was the opportunity to be a Christmas Tree designer for the local Boys and Girls Club charity event – “The Festival of Trees”.  For two weekends in the month of November I tinseled, bedazzled, and adorned four fabulous trees that were eventually auctioned off to the highest bidders to benefit our local Boys and Girls Club. The other designers and I had glitter coated in our hair and skin for a good three weeks afterwards (glitter is sticky stuff!), but it was worth the sparkling residue, especially seeing the finished trees on display. The colors were amazing so I decided there was no better way to finish 2016’s color palette series then with color inspiration from the four trees I designed! Enjoy!

 

“All You Need Is Love”  – (my Peace inspired tree)

“Woodland Rapsody”  – (this one is 100% inspired for my sister)

“Black Tie Affair”  – (my black & white tree – and side note, it won a 1st prize ribbon!)

“Mele Kalikimaka” Palm  – (inspired for my Hawaii Ohana)

OH, and one more thing…

some Christmas caroling fun carpool karaoke style as only James Corden can do!  Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, lots of Peace, Joy, Love, Wellness, & Fabulous Fun in 2017!

Autumn Color Palettes

autumn-purples-color-palette

Happy Fall everyone! The two color palettes above are from photos taken at my sister’s house where she has the most amazing contrast of autumn leaves dripping above these vibrant purple garden flowers. Oh the beauty of nature!  

I’m so happy it’s finally autumn! SoCal isn’t getting the cool Fall weather that we’d all love to have, but it is starting to turn a little and the edge of summer seems to be subsiding – a little. Let’s just hope we get rain soon. Needless to say my house is decorated for Trick or Treaters, pumpkins bought, and my favorite Halloween coffee mugs are out and ready to be used in the morning. I’m also excited to be headed to another yoga retreat, my last for 2016, and I just had to share with you the newest addition to my Halloween decor that my sister just gave me! I’m thinking this little yogi will be going straight to my desk after the holiday is over.   He’s WAY too awesome to pack away! yoga-skeleton
