Inspiration Workshop – Perfect Bathroom

Week 5 of the Inspiration Workshop…holy cow!  This weeks prompt was: Perfect Bathroom.  Well, I don’t know about all you out there, but the perfect bathroom for me is all about the tub.  I remember apartment and house hunting & in a couple of those places…I seen how fabulous the tub was & took the place purely based on that.  Bubble baths are my little peace of heaven and the only time I feel like I get to totally unwind and relax!  Put me in a bubble bath & you’ve got one happy girl!  Anyways, the two baths I found below look pretty perfect to me!  Gotta love an ocean view!!  What do you think??  **SWOON**

Inspiration Workshop – Spend the Day Playing

Linking up again to the 4th week of the Inspiration Workshop over at GussySews.  I’ve really got to get on the ball and start posting other than once a week for the workshop.  I could say it’s summertime and I’m busy like a lot of people, but I’m not.  Currently, I live in Orlando, FL while my fiance lives in Columbus, OH…sad panda!  So, needless to say…I’m a pretty boring ‘ol 33 yr old when I’m stuck in a city all by myself.  So when it comes to spending the day playing for me…that usually means playing in paint and trying to come up with new ideas to throw on the canvas.  Usually, by the time I’m done I’ll have paint covered hands, possible a bit on the face & I’ve even been known to find paint on my feet!  Below is a collage of 4 random paintings I’ve done over the past few months.  I have several more, so I need to just open up an Etsy shop to try to get rid of them, as I just paint for the fun of it.  Would you be interested if I opened up a shop??
Now the last time I spent the day playing with another person, would have been back in February when my little brother came down to visit his lonely, homesick sister.  His first day down here, his agenda was GATORS.  So we went on an awesome airboat tour of the Everglades at Wild Willy’s Airboat Tours, which was a blast!  Afterwards, we hit up Gatorland where we fed gators hotdogs, while trying not to get attacked by all the birds on the prowl for the food.  I’m not talking little birds either…I’m talking birds that stand up to you waste with huge beaks and will sneak up behind you and give you a peck when you’re trying to feed the gators.  We also watched a few shows & even tried our hand at a little gator wrestling.  It was a fun filled day & I can’t wait for the chance to do it again one of these days when someone else decides to come down for a visit.

Inspiration Workshop – Green

Wow…week 3 for the Inspiration Workshop!  I was so excited to see the prompt for this weeks workshop to blog about was: GREEN!  Squeel!  Green is my absolute favorite color of all, so I was thrill to get to show you some of my favorite green items!  First and foremost, on my must have list, is a rosette necklace from  See the picture below for the moss green beauty on my list!  It was my birthday this past Tuesday, so I think I’m just going to be forced to buy this for myself as a b-day present. 🙂

One of my favorite animals ever is the sea turtle.  They are just so darn cute.  So, if I were ever to permanently brand myself with a tattoo, it would have to be like the green goodness below!  I just love the green, turquoise & fuchsia colors together.
Now you’re probably wondering what in the heck is green in the picture below…well, my eyes for starters…lol.  No, I included the picture below for one of mine and my fiance’s favorite drinks which are mojitos & in the picture below we are at a little bar in St. Thomas in the U.S.V.I. called Mojitos.  Great little place if you ever get the chance to visit the island!  Plus I wanted to include the pic because I miss my fiance so much right now, since we are living in different states at the moment due to work.  Hopefully, he’ll be down here in a few months…keeping my fingers crossed!
Now I found this dreamy green bathroom on  It’s my new addiction!  Click on the picture and it’ll take you to where I found it on the website.  Love this huge tub & to have it surrounded by windows is awesome, as long as you don’t have any nearby neighbors…lol.  I love the sage green color of the walls!  Gorgeous!
Well, that’s my green inspiration for now!  Hope you enjoyed my finds!  Have a good rest of the week!

Inspiration Workshop – Kitchens

Greetings bloggers!  Hard to believe a week has past already since the last “Inspiration Workshop”!  I loved seeing all the blog posts for all that participated!  This week I’m linking up to Maggie at Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop once again.  The prompt that was sent out to post about this week was: Kitchens

Blue and green kitchen
If you click on the picture, it’s linked to the website I found this picture by Richard Leo Johnson.  This looks like a dream kitchen to me!  I love, love, love the turquoise and white together.  And I absolutely love that the tile is tumbled sea glass!  What a wonderful idea!  I totally adore the retro style fridge and stove.  I’m a big Rachael Ray fan and always loved her kitchen on “30 Minute Meals”, especially the retro styled appliances.  I also loved her pull out pantry, so I’d have to add one of those to this kitchen!  I’m also in love with all the counter space!  I love having a kitchen bar that you can sit at, but notice there’s also a lot of counter space on the side you don’t sit at, perfect for preparing yummy treats!  I think kitchens are where most families spend the most time, so why not make it a magnificent space that you just adore!  Swoon! It’s so dreamy!

Inspiration Workshop – Handmade

I was so excited when Maggie over at Gussy Sews (cutest shop ever!) announced that she was going to start her Inspiration Workshop for everyone to link up to every Thursday.  Every week she is going to e-mail out a prompt & this week the prompt was: Handmade 
So many things inspire me in regards to handmade items.  My new addiction is Pinterest…oh my, I could spend hours and hours on that site finding new craftiness I want to try on my own.  I also frequent Etsy for inspiration as well as many blogs.  The last crafty post that inspired me the most had to have been over at Under the Table and Dreaming By Stephanie Lynn.  Just click on the name of the blog and it will take you to the most awesome tutorial ever.  It’s for the lovely wreath pictured above from the blog I just mentioned.  The little rosettes are made from book pages!!  Don’t you just love it!  What better way to use a book that you didn’t care for & aren’t ever going to read again?!  I started making my own wreath a couple weeks ago…I’m only about 1/3 of the way done, as it is a very time consuming project, but it will be totally worth it to have such a gorgeous finished project to hang on my door!
