Gazing in the Garden

Leave it to me to naturally be drawn to Victorian beauty - without even knowing it was used in the Victorian era.

I love to garden and all things garden related - it's also a way to feel close to my great grandmothers who have passed on. This year I planted 7 roses and wanted to expand their beauty by placing a Gazing Ball in my garden. I found myself very drawn to them so of course I had to check out the history of them - not surprised that they were very popular in Victorian gardens and has an interesting history and mystical lore about them you can read here. Now on to my Gazing Ball with my blooming climbing Roses (Blaze) and Gazing Balls from the past!

Victorian house, Gazing ball and BOSTON TERRIERS! Perfection!

Shabby Antique

It's so nice out today which reminds me on how much I like to spend outdoors in it - before it get's too hot! Besides gardening, I like to refinishes furniture and such. A couple years back I did a few pieces I would like to share with you!

Here we have a bed giving to me by my great grandmother that was in storage for over 20 years. I decided to shabby it up for my daughter. Click on the video to my YouTube page for step by step directions and products used. I will post a few more of my work in the weeks to come ;)

Glowing For Spring!

I've never really got into Physicians Formula until now - and who wouldn't with such frou-frou must have adorable packaging! I must admit, I'm a sucker for it! And now for the best part? The products themselves are a shooting star! I'm loving it and the subtle, healthy, natural glow they give you. Knowing me, I prefer the natural look for day to day wear and you could easily smoke up your eyes and smooch on some bolder lips for evening glamour!

Shimmer Strips Palette in Natural Nude. Nude Wear Pressed Powder in Light. Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in Natural.

Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing in Classic Nude.

I am wearing the Pressed Powder, Mood Blush and Natural Nude Palette as a highlighter.

Tokymilk Dark

Love & Lucky Kisses with this cute Tokyomilk Dark Takeout! Such a not your usual scent in Tainted Love and I'm thrilled that the Get Lucky lip tint, in a sheer deep rose, taste like sweet candied roses! They have many interesting items to get into and you gotta love the packaging!

To Keep - My Claudia

My Claudia, her ashes and memorial/mourning locket to keep forever. Her memorial necklace I made from a vintage Sterling & Garnet Marcasite locket in which I used melted wax from her memorial candle, her fur and some rose petals. It's a lovely way to keep your spirits together whenever you need them in remembrance.
