Happy New Year!

The ocean is such a source of renewal for me, and looking at this photo of our girls at the beach that I took the other day I think that it is because the water is so symbolic, like the cleansing waters of Baptism. That is how refreshed the ocean makes me feel, and since I don't get there very often these days living in Kentucky, I truly treasure seeing our girls frolic in the waves, especially in late December! If there are any rough days ahead in the new year, I will look back upon days like this and remember the smiles on our girls faces and the joy that was obvious in their hearts.
I wish you all a blessed New Year filled with good health, much happiness and prosperity, it is all there for the taking, we just need to open ourselves up to it.

We're Going Back to Cali....

We are leaving in the morning for California where we will be spending Christmas with Charley's parents, our grandmothers, and lots of other relatives. I am beside myself to see my cousins, one of them has a little girl named Presley that I am just dying to see in person! My girlfriends are planning nights out or us and we have our family trip to Disneyland all maped out, and I just cannot wait to see the girls faces when we get there. If you are you are lucky, I may even post some photos from the fabulous chocolate party that my Mother in law throws for the girls in our family each year. It is spectacular and something that I have missed for 3 year now.
I am mostly looking forward to morning walks with my grandma and time spent holding hands with her and just loving one another and having the girls get to spend some quality time with their grandparents and great grandma's! I do have to say that I will miss having a white Christmas this year, but being with my Baba will most likely make me forget all about it.

I wish each and every one of you a joyous and most blessed Holiday season with best wished for a healthy and happy New Year!
With Love,

Our Families Hero

Two weeks ago I had the honor of attending my brothers promotion ceremony at the Air Staff Command College in Montgomery, Alabama where he is the Vice Dean. He was promoted to Colonel, much to his and our families surprise. When he decided to go and get his doctorate a few years ago, everyone told him his chances of being promoted to Cololnel were slim to none if that was the path he would chose, but after much prayer with his wife and family, he knew it would be the right thing to do. He LOVES teaching and is so passionate, this we all knew about him, but there were so many things I learned on this special day, and the emotion has not yet left me, and most likely will not. My brother has served in the USAF for 25 years now, and he would have it no other way. Intelligence is his specialty and he travels a lot to Europe to teach at international military colleges, specializing in the teaching of ethics in war. He is on a comittee of high ranking military officials that is trying to figure out a way to end the war in Iraq in a peaceful manner, bringing home our troops safely, and has served in Iraq 3 times. He is my hero and I am so grateful to have heard all that I did on this most interesting and humbling day. You see, as a human, I have mostly seen him as my big brother. Someone I adore and look up to, someone who can seriously annoy me, and someone to vie for moms attention with, but I never knew ALL the things he does and has done. It was mind boggling! And standing in a long reception line with him and our family afterwards was even more surreal. At least 100 military men and women that I regard as heros congratulated us on our amazing brother. What an honor to shake each soldiers hand and thank them for their service to our country and for attending the ceremony. I am so grateful that I could drive there with my mom and youngest daughter & my sister also drove all the way from Missouri with one of her sons. Those three days were a gift that we will always treasure. My brother for all of his accomplishments is very modest, and quite humble. He is above all things a man of God, and a man devoted to his family with all of his being, an amazing father of 4 brilliant loving children. My true hero! As the holidays are upon us, I would hope that eveyone will take a moment and pray for the safety of all of our military personell around the world who are serving our country selflessly, and for their families as well, for many are not with their loved ones and are surely missing them dearly.
Nik and Veronica, Tom's youngest pinning Daddy!
Our sister Rada, Tom, and me.
Nik, Veronica, Jacqueline and Bryce.

Sleigh Bells Ring....

Well it seems like the very second we were done eating our Thanksgiving meal at my mom's new home here in KY, the girls were asking when we could put up our Christmas decorations. I had been avoiding bringing this up with them this year because we are going to be spending Christmas in California this year with my Grandma and Charley's parents and all our other relatives and friends that we miss dearly, so I was not sure what I was going to do. Needless to say, their little eyes just touched my heart too deeply not to put up some things, however, the big tree did not come out & I have not made up my mind on how far I am going to go on the outside of the house, but that can wait til next weekend! I decided this year to just do some simple vignettes on the mantle, the pink buffet, somethign pretty for the cofee table, and one one the low china cabinet that is in our entry. In the setting above I placed some vintage mercury glass beads in a crystal bowl and placed 3 of my vintage blown glass santas that are no longer in perfect condtion, but that I cannot part with. I placed the bowl on a silver tray with some candles and lots of pretty vintage pink glass ornaments and it just looks gorgeous on my cofee table.

The mantle above is simple, but I love winter whites and soft pastels at Christmas, and this year I left ALL the reds upstairs in the attic. My dearest friend Tracy sent me these gorgeous white feather trees as a gift this year, and I LOVE the way they look on my hearth. She is so generous in every way, but her friendship is my greatest gift!
On the pink buffet shown here above, I just put some pretty winter fruits in one of my favorite antique bowls, and I love this vintage white feather tree that I adorned with vintage mercury beads and some pretty blown glass birds.
On the low china cabinet in my entry I almost always place this tree with my most favorite antique ornaments and the girls love our pastel glitter christmas houses. I must say though, at night, when the sun has gone down, this tree gives me much joy, and as I walk up the stairs each night, it makes my heart fill with joy and I hope that I am creating good memories for our girls.
May the joy and peace of the season fill your hearts and be with each and every one of you!

A Week of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite times of the year. I have always loved that a specific day is set aside to give thanks. In our home we talk about thankfulness daily, but I love having an entire day devoted solely to it. This year I have so much to be thankful for, and of course on the top of my list is my sweet Baba's triumphant surgery to remove her lung cancer. We found out today that the lymph nodes that were removed were cancer free, Hallelujah! She actually went home from the hospital today and sounded so much better with some drugs out of her system. She's been sounding pretty loopy to say the least! Secondly, my mom is here. What a blessing. After living apart from her for the past 3 years, having her move here to KY is such a gift! My brother and his family will arrive in town on Tuesday and for the first time in decades, we will all be together for Thanksgiving. Last year Tom was in Iraq and my mom drove up from Alabama with my sister in law and the kids, and we all were missing him terribly, so this year will be extra joyous. There is nothing like family. I am sure at some point in the coming week, we will all irritate each other in some way, but that is life, we love each other warts and all, so we tolerate our differences and try to embrace them with as much love as we can.

I am going to spend this next week just loving on my family, so I will not be posting new items on my website, but the sale is still going, don't miss out, it ends next Saturday night. I may post a bit on the blog, I will just see if something happens that I have to share, or maybe I will find something that will inspire me that I think you will all need to see. I will tell you that I will have some fabulous new specialty items to post next Sunday as well as some amazing antiques (I do have to say I love all of them or else I would not buy them) so be sure to check it out.

I wish each and every one of you a blessed Thanksgiving. I am grateful for you all.

With Love,

The Purest Justification

Today was much more hectic than most, my feet are killing me from being on them most of the day, but today was beyond meaningful as well. I recieved an amazing and very unexpected gift at a luncheon that was held in honor of the PTA presidents of our school district today. I was presented this letter from my two oldest daughters along with some other neat things, but the letter is something I will treasure for the rest of my life. You see I got a lot of heat and I mean A LOT of heat, from my friends and family for taking this position, and I know it was out of love, they all worry that I do too much, but how do you say no to the school principal and your kids? I can't when it comes to things like this. I know that there are a lot of you out there just like me, lots of irons in the fire, burning the canlde at both ends, but we do manage to get it all done, don't we? Sometimes it may not get done perfectly, but it gets done, and generally people are pleased. I want my children to grow up with a sense of responsibility to serve others and get a good warm feeling in their hearts when they do and hopefully they will pass that on for generations to come. I faxed this letter to my in-laws today and I can't wait for my mom to see it in the morning, I know she will not be able to read it without crying ( I cried all afternoon), and I don't think Charley will ever grumble under his breath about the time I spend on PTA stuff again after reading it when he gets home from work. The greatest gift was this letter and knowing that our girls wrote every word themselves, together (and without hurting eachother) and that it comes from their hearts and they are proud of their mom. Could you think of a better reason to be involved in your children's school? I can't! If you have a minute, click on the photo and read the letter, I am so blessed!!

My Favorite Lady

My 84 year old grandma had surgery yesterday to remove a cancerous tumor from her lung, and she made it through with flying colors. She quit smoking 35 years ago, but somehow it still got to her. Luckily the doctor says that she has the heart and lungs of a 50 year old and ties that to her daily walks of 84 blocks. She has never driven a car, she has walked everywhere her whole life and it has kept her very healthy. This is a picture of us from last year when she came to KY from CA to visit our family, I did not want to let her go back! Is she not just the cutest thing? She is the sweetest soul I know, and I pray daily that I will one day be as wonderful a grandmother to my grandchildren as she has been to us. I can hardly wait till December when we go to CA for Christmas and we can be with her, it has been hard to not be with my grandma for the past 3 years on Christmas, but she will never leave my heart.

For those of you who are blessed to still have one, give them a call or send them a note and tell them how much you love them, and if you are a grandma, know that your love is a love like no other, it is the most precious gift for grandparents love in such a non judgemental way, and can spoil and do things that mom & dad just cannot do. What a blessing!

A Letter Just For You

I could not resist buying these fabulous charms for the website! I love them and have one for each of my girls names, I may even add them to a bracelette with mine and Charley's initals as well. I also purchased some gorgeous charms with antique lace in them from the same artist and I am hoping to have them up on the site for all to see tonight along with the alphabet girl charms. I am thrilled to have found Shari here in Kentucky and I cannot wait to add more of her fabulous hand made treasures to my website. Charms sell for $16.50 and chains are $2.00 each

I'm So Excited!!!!

I think that the title to this post says it all! I am truly beside myself over the new look of my blog. When I first started this little venture I had no clue about blog customization and I was so unhappy with the way that my blog looked because it did not represent me and what I love in any way! For a couple of months I tried to make the best of it until I was blessed to find Shawn from Eclectic Whimsy. She is my blog angel, and I just cannot thank her enough for making my blog so fantastic! She has been very patient for the past 2 months, making sure that everything was just right and adding things for me here & there. I was determined to have my brooch that I love so much as somthing special and she created it perfectly for me. She truly took all of the elements that I love and put them together for me to create something magically beautiful, so if you like the new look of the blog, we all have her to thank! The world wide web is such an amazing thing, I get to make friends with such wonderfully talented people that I have never met face to face, yet with whom I share many of the same passions, and creativity, I feel very blessed!
Thank you Shawn from the bottom of my heart!

Something New For My Office

I found this fabulous display cabinet at the flea market last weekend and I was so excited because I needed something to store all of my china that I have for sale on the website in. I like having it in my office so that when I sell something I can just label it right away. The cabinet was in its original state of a dated dark wood when I saw it and I said out loud to my mom, "just imagine how beautiful all of the details will be when I paint this piece white!" The gentelman who was selling it about fell over and said he would not sell it to me if I was going to do that and his wife promptly told him to walk away and cover his ears because she was taking the cash! He turned out to be very sweet & made my promise to take a picture for him so he could see how it turned out. It is perfect for this space and I have been searching for the past 2 years for just the right piece, so I am thrilled.

The other wonderful thing about this piecce is that the stunning painting my mother in law painted for my for my birthday this past summer looks marvelous hung over it and I get to look at it all day while working from my desk. I fell so blessed and very loved being given something so priceless. The painting even has a portrait of my oldest daughter from when she was younger in it and it is tiltled "A Study in Whites". I could not imagine anything more perfect!

My Strange Addiction

I am sorry to say that it’s not as juicy or racy as the title may suggest, since antique berry bowls are what I cannot manage to walk away from, but it is seems strange to me. I mean, with the exception of all the different sized plates I own combined, and I cannot stop buying them. Maybe in the back of my mind I am making sure that there will be enough of them for all three of our girls to divide equally, although I am sure they will have more than they will be able to use as well. (Hopefully the crazy collecting gene has been passed on to at least one of them!) Maybe it is the delicate size and the sheer beauty of something so petit, or maybe it is simply the romance of it all. I just love the thought that there was a specific piece of porcelain for mostly everything one ate not too long ago! I love to imagine a well dressed gentleman serving fresh berries to a beautifully dressed table of girls with good manners, clean clothes and fresh faces in a garden surrounded by pink and white roses…. But in our home, we use them daily, in the morning for our breakfast cereal or oatmeal, for a side of cut up apples at lunch, and in the evening for dessert with ice cream, fresh strawberries and homemade whip cream, with girls in clothes that have been played in all day and smudged faces. I have my business cards in a gorgeous pink rimmed berry bowl on my desk and many of my clients remark that it is clever and I enjoy the compliment. When setting up for a party I also like to use berry bowls to hold sugar cubes and packets of sweetener, I also scatter them about the house filled with something salty or sweet to snack on and it just looks so lovely! Berry bowls also make great soap dishes in a vintage or antique inspired bath. No wonder why I cannot get enough of these little treasures, they are pretty, but practical too, and nothing inspires me more than surrounding myself with pretties!!

It's Always Something!

Well, to say that this past week has been trying would be a bit of an understatement, but today was just nearly more than I could take. Last Tuesday our little runt of the litter poodle Ginger was lying on her bed shaking so I took her to the vet & she is still there now on Sunday very sick and not responding very well to all they are trying to do. As you can see sister Brittney is looking very sad. While I was at the pet hospital today visiting ginger with our two younger daughters, Daddy called to tell me that our oldest, Victoria broke her foot & will need to go to the Pediatric Orthopedist tomorrow. It all comes on the heels of me having the stomach bug last week and bronchitis this week and I just am trying to count my blessings for all that is good. I know that the foot is minor (I hope, they say there are 2 broken bones) and as for Ginger, I am trying to come to grips that she may not make it. Needless to say, I did not have time for photos or packing orders today with all that is going on, so my friends, please bear with me over the next few days, I will pull it all together & move on because I am counting all my blessings, and I have lots!

Something Sweet

One of my dearest friends Julie has an incredible gourmet home made dessert business that has helped me to gain a significant amount of weight over the past year ( I wish I was joking, but I am not). I have done all of the photography and styling for her site and it has been a lot of fun working with her and her incredible family. The other day we did a photo shoot for the new wedding favors that she is offering, so I thought I would share a few of the pictures from it with you. They are not even on her website yet, so you are all truly getting a sneak peek. You can find out more about Julie & her fabulous desserts by going to her wibsite

Bon Apetit!

Fall Whimsy

Okay, I hope no one takes this the wrong way, but I have never been one for “festive garments” as I like to call them, so I was truly tickled when I happened upon these precious pieces. I could not help but smile when I found these fabulous Halloween charms that are made by an artist here in Kentucky. The little witch girl is my favorite, most likely because that is how I see myself at times (my youngest decided that she wants to be a witch this year and she wants mommy to be her twin. How can I possibly say no to that???) and I finally found something that I would enjoy wearing that is “festive”. I love all of these precious vintage inspired charms and I will be offering them on my website for $16.50 and they are perfect for all ages! The charms will be listed in the “In The Pink Exclusives” section of the site, so try to stop by an take a peek!

A Rose By Any Other Name.....

Is just NOT the same!!!! I had to share my excitement over finding these Iceberg roses today!! Iceberg roses are my most favorite breed of roses and I had lots of them in both my front and back yards when I lived in California. I have not been able to find them here in Lexington at a nursery anywhere, so imagine my excitement when I saw these today. I was out hunting for white mums (which by the way are also hard to find here), so I ran into this roadside nursery because I saw their white mums from the car and I spotted the roses at the back of the nursery and thought I was seeing things! The old lady that owns the place said that she is the only nursery in town that grows them and they are her favorite as well. I bought some for myself as well as for my mom (who was also just beside herself!), and the nursery also had gorgeous pink English roses that were to die for, so this weekend will be a fun weekend for my Mom and I to bond over some gardening before going out to the horse races.....but that I will leave for another day....

Squeeze Them Tight!

I really struggled with writing this entry in my blog today, but I obviously came to the descision to go ahead with it. I recieved a flower order last night for a funeral arrangement for a 6 week old baby boy. Any mother reading this will know immediately that my heart was crushed on many different levels. Did I read extra stories to my girls last night? You betcha, and I am sure I will tonight too. I will lay with them longer as well and maybe there will be ice cream after school today for "no reason except for that I love you". Not that we don't do these things from time to time anyway, but in the daily grind of life, it is easy to get annoyed with the gazzillion questions that are asked, the shoes (piles of them because I have 3 girls) that I am always tripping over, hair acccessories that are everywhere I look (including Hannah Montana wigs), and messy rooms that "I have worked so hard to make pretty for you!" Refereeing the cat fights that ensue between the three of them can make me feel like I need an IV of sauvignon blanc inserted directly into my arm. I LIVE for my girs, as frustrated as they may make me on a daily basis, but the truth of the matter is that just seeing their precious faces each morning when I wake them is the thing I cannot imagine living without. I know that I am blessed beyond reason to have had 3 healthy, sassy, smart, talented, very good, gorgeous, LOVING girls to fill my life with a joy that has exceeded all of the dreams that I ever had. So squeeze your loved ones a little tighter and longer and give thanks for your blessings.

With Love,

The Cloche

There is something very elegant to me about the cloche. I just love placing something pretty and unexpected beneath them. Today I decided to take 3 of my favorite Dresden lace pieces that remind me of my girls and place them beneath with an antique pink linen doily. Pieces like this that can be moved around the house and displayed differently thrill me because I love to change things up and I never know what new treasure I will come across that I can play with! A cloche also works really well if you want to display something sentimental. One of my best friends Maggie, has a HUGE, cloche on a table in her bedroom with some of her late mothers treasures beneath it. Everything Maggie does is beautiful, her eye is amazing, although she will never admit it out loud. This vignette of her mothers treasures that she has always has and always will take my breath away.

Long gone are the days that a cloche was used for practical reasons! We are lucky that we live in a time that we can use them simply to display the things we love and add a touch of elegant whimsy to a room. So the next time that you are out hunting and you run across one of these lovely pieces, just stop and close your eyes and imagine all that you can do with it, then hurry up, buy it and get home to start having some fun!

Happy Birthday Charley!!!

So it is my gorgeous and beyond talented husbands 36th birthday today, and even though he offered, I could not let him work on my site tonight. We just finished a wonderful family dinner at our home and the girls are in the bath, so I am off to tend to mommy duty, but I wanted to share a photo of my true love with you (and one of Jacquleine dusting the cake as well). Now you can see where the girls get all of their good looks from!
Happy Birthday Charley!
I love you to the sun!
P.S. The home made chocolate bundt cake was to die for!!!

Mom Moves to Kentucky!!

Okay, so if any of you have been wondering why I have not updated my blog in a while, I have a VERY good reason! My mom moved to KY on September 7th and I have spent all of the last 10 days shopping for new furnishings with her and helping her unpack, which we are nowhere near finished doing! We did manage to find some gorgeous pieces at the flea market yesterday, which was a ball, and I must say, having my mom with me again & being at the flea market with her was amazing! When I lived in CA, we would go together nearly every weekend, so this was really sentimental for me, especially after being away from her for the past 3 years. So she gave up her condo by the beach in gorgeous Santa Monica, CA and moved her to KY, 2 miles from our home, to be with us. I call that being blessed!
Her home is a beautiful ranch in a gorgeous neighborhood and when we have it all fixed up, I will post some photos for you all to see, but for now I must get myself into the basement to unpack all of the amazing TREASURES that I found yesterday, and pack up the orders from last week for my lovely ladies.
Have a gorgeous day!

My New Space

Starting this blog has really gotten my creative juices flowing again, and I think having the girls go back to school has helped with this as well. This past Saturday my personal computer that I do all of my business work on died. I was instantly in a panic and my husband offered up his Mac laptop to to work off of since he has another huge system in the office that we share. Well, I started to sit with him at his desk since my "dead" computer is on the other side of the room on my desk which is all built in and very elegant, but this is the one room in the house that I have not "made my own" if you know what I mean. Charley has clients that come over here as well, so it is the one space that I left "unpinked" if you will. As much as we love each other, sharing a desk is not very fun.

So I got to thinking last night that the parlor would make a gorgeous office for me! Being the incredible (and handsome) hubby that he is , Charley took the day off to help me with the girls since I had surgery on my foot yesterday, and little did he know that he would be moving around furniture and helping me create a new space for myself. I love the freedom of the laptop and I do not think I can go back, so this will be a perfect space for me, and this magnificent antique Danish desk was going to waste in our bedroom and the bench and vintage table that were in the parlor will get used for sure with a new seating area in our romantic bedroom.

I love this new room , and I love my desk, and just sitting at it to work is inspiring to me, but truly , nothing gets me going more than moving some furniture around, I love making old spaces feel new again and using rooms for things that they were not originally intended for!

I hope you enjoyed my small room make over.
All my best,

Finding Space for a New Find

I came home from the flea market yesterday with this fabulous mirrored shadow box and was trying to figure out where I wanted to put it , because you see, I usually don't think about where I am going to put something when I am buying it, especially if I am super excited about finding it to begin with as was the case with this fantastic shadow box! At first I took it right upstairs to Valerie Jane's room, since I just renovated that one and I am trying to get the finishing touches done, but I really was feeling a tad jealous at the thought of it being in there (I know that is awful!) so I just hauled it back down the stairs and as I was doing that I looked over at the dining room and I knew what needed to be done! The shadow box is very heavy so we had to make sure that it went into studs and we used the appropriate hangers as well, so when all is said and done, I have a new place to display my favorite cups that are touched with pink as well as my favorite bisque lace babies. The change is refreshing and scale wise, the shadow box looks much better than the framed rose print, which now I must say looks marvelous hung in Valerie Jane's room, which I hope to be showing you sometime soon.

It's All Coming Up Sunflowers

I had the honor of making 50 centerpieces for a gala at the historic round barn at the Red Mile Race Track here in Lexington Ky that had its opening race in 1875. The gala being held is a fund raiser for Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital of Lexington and although I do not have finished photos of everything completely set up, I thought that you might enjoy some of the beauty of the wonderful state that I am blessed to live in.

I received a phone call tonight during dinner from Dana, one of the event coordinators that hired me for the event telling me how happy she and the rest of the staff were. Sometimes simplicity is best. I am super big on lots of frills and pretty, but when they told me the setting and what their linens looked like, I knew it had to have a more "south of France" feel of simple elegance, and luckily they agreed. I was promised pictures of the event with everything completely set up, so when I receive them, I will post them as well.

I remember the days when a couple of my favorite magazines used to devote entire issues to blue and white, and even though my passion is pink, there is something clean and fresh about that color combination and when you throw in the yellow I realize why I love it so much, blue for the ocean and sky, white for the puffy clouds and yellow for the sun that lights our days.

Au revoir!

Treasures on Display

I just love displaying my favorite things, and often I get questions for suggestions as to how and where to place your most loved pieces. Wall curios are deffinately one of my most favorite ways to display the smaller pieces I have collected and they are perfect for antiques such as cups and saucers, small figurines, bone dishes and dessert plates. As you can see, I have a mixture of pieces in this curio which gives it a bit of whimsy and keeps the eye looking. I also think it is important to take everything out of your cabinets now and again to rearrange them and give your home a breath of fresh air, especially if you entertain on a regular basis, your guests will really enjoy seeing something new the next time they come over to your lovely home.

Creating Romance with Touches of Old

When I saw these prints, I knew instantly that they would create a sense of romance in any home, and that those of us who love all things old and pretty, especially when they include roses, would fall in love as I did with these lovely framed prints. There is such a difference when you walk into the home of someone who decorates with treasures from the past than when you enter the home of someone who had "the decorator from Ethan Allen" help them with their home. Both are lovely I admit, and I do so admire many of the "new" pieces, but there is just something that pieces like this add to a home; warmth, a sense of history, and most definitely romance!

I am so grateful that I have a husband that enjoys my sense of style and appreciates treasures from the past. Our home is a haven for all things old, and from time to time, we joke and say that our home is "where 200 year old pieces of china come to die" since with three little ones things get broken now and again, but they are never thrown away. I have a VERY LARGE box full of broken china, just waiting to be used to create something splendid that can be passed on to our daughters, and maybe someday their daughters too!

My Baby Turns 10!

It is hard for me to believe that my oldest "baby" Vicotria just turned 10 on Monday, August 20th. It honestly feels like yesterday that I held her in my arms for the first time looking into her wide open eyes that seemed to be looking at me as if she had known me forever. We are blessed that she is so good, quite a little lady, and talented to boot with 2 younger sisters that think she hung the moon.
If you are a regular to In The Pink Antiques, you know that I have been a bit preoccupied since the beginning of August with visiting relatives, school starting and being PTA preisident for the first time, so I thought I would share this bit of a very precious moment with you.
