It's a Party!

Christina and her Mom, Barbara.

My niece, Christina turned 21! Woohoo, what a fun age!
She is in college and will be a dentist. We're all so proud
of her. She does so many things for her Sorority. It's
amazing how she can do so much while keeping her
grades up. Kudo's to her and her Sorority. Here's
some pics of her B-day party.

She wanted a dog for her Birthday.
Her Mom bought her this faux dog
as she thought it would be easier
for her to take care of. LOL, Christina,
wanted a real one! It looked real to me.
I need to ask to see if she takes it out
to go potty. Did you notice how handsome
her boyfriend is? he looks like a soap
opera stud!

Ranch Style Chic?

I'm on a mission to make my own Ranch Style chic decor.
I've decorated country style(many years ago), Shabby chic
(not too long ago), and traditional. After moving here in
the country, I want to decorate to my surroundings.
I was an Interior designer for many years and I've decorated
showroom floors, but I am stumped! My son had surgery not
too long ago and while waiting, I picked up a
Texas Monthly magazine. I about died at the designs, they were
horrible! Do they think if you live in the country you have no
taste? Do you have to wear turquoise jewelry because you live
in the country? Do these people not understand that so many
city folks are moving to the country? I've sold a lot of my
shabby chic stuff and what I kept has been painted black, with
the exception of two pieces. What I would like to design is
"casual ranch chic." So I'll get to designing and post some
pictures soon and I would love to hear your feedback. Here's
my first Ranch Style Chic floral arrangement.
