Pets are definitely like family so everything hurts.
Thanks for sharing the view ...never been there.
Funny but true... I was cleaning out my garage in anticipation of selling my house. Deciding to move things along and forgo the garage sale, I placed two boxes at the curb filled with "give away" type stuff. Each box had a sheet of paper taped on front with the word "FREE" written on it. Then I went inside to have a cold glass of water and put my feet up for about 10 minutes before getting back to the sorting and removal of more stuff. Ten minutes pass (way too fast I might add) and I return to the... Continue reading

I own a pair of pony print pumps. Why these particular pony print pumps? These little lovelies are equipped with a kitten heel ...just the right height for running my errands and going out to lunch with the girls (like now) when I want to feel a wee bit more feminine in my jeans. Love my pony print pumps which can be found here. Continue reading

My passions consist of graphic design, photography, art, decorating, feng shui and fashion styling (to name but a few). I started my first business in the 80's which was a decorating business. In the 90's I started another business offering a combinination of pen and ink drawings and calligraphy quotations. Today, I still offer the lettered artwork. I cherish each business venture for it provided a creative outlet in my life. Here is a small quote I keep on a table that I must pass by every day. It serves as a reminder that I have a choice.

I love to decorate my home using these colors during the Spring and Summer months. I also use the same colors in my bedroom year round. It reminds me of water and since my home is on the lake seems appropriate. So why am I showing a Spring and Summer mantel now? Because I loved it so much ...I never re-decorated the mantel for the Fall and Winter months. I know, I know ...unheard of for me ...but true! Continue reading

Throughout my home you will find that I surround myself with things that make me smile ...maybe even laugh ...oh and also flowers ...always flowers. I have always loved flowers and learned to have them everyday. In The Netherlands that isn't difficult because they are so easy to find ...and usually within walking distance from your home, as was the case for me. Flowers are so romantic and lift me up like nothing else can. "Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you."... Continue reading

Not sure what is more appealing to me about snow ...the playfulness of it falling or the clean crisp feeling it brings to everything. On went my boots then I grabed my camera just as the ducks and geese came in to feed. Will share more soon. It was definitely a beautiful morning, but I'm anxious for Spring. How about you?

Well for this weekend I have planned to take it easy {most of the time or as much as possible that is} with one exception. Oh my list of things to do has been created, but I'm planning one day {minimum} of just total relaxation an extra day this weekend with the holiday :) so it won't be difficult to carve out some "ME" time. I made a realization this week. Relying on the computer to keep me on track just makes me more disorganized. Why? Because when I go to my computer I get distracted from all the... Continue reading

From one simple piece ...a cream and black polka dot blouse to a dozen outfits. You are limited only by your imagination.

Later I will put together more mix-ups to help you along, but see how many you can do yourself first. Enjoy! ~jan Resource: Blouse, here & here. Continue reading

Imagine this enter the room looking all chic and put-together. Everyone is looking at you and slowly taking in your outfit from head to toe. And as if your polished look wasn't enough to drool over ...all eyes gather at your feet. Just one gaze and all the gals can't wait to be the first to ask ...where did you get those shoes? How many different outfits can you wear with these lovely flats ...I'm up to 7 and still going. I could see myself in these flats with a pinstripe pencil skirt, white flowing blouse ...with/without the jacket.... Continue reading
