crushing on this...

Lonny's new December issue was just incredible, talk about getting my creative juices flowing. Have a look at this fantastic idea of a turquoise tree. 
Of course I wouldn't buy a live tree and do this. But I do have an old pine tree that was sitting in my garage from last year. So I am totally stocked to experiment with color this year. What do you think???

As you know this is my first Christmas without my husband, its just me and the kids at this time, but we are going all out to make this season as festive as possible. 

If its one thing I've learned is that there is so much more to my life than just my marriage. I don't mean that in a bitter way at all, but seeing with new eyes what I can accomplish, standing on my own two feet has been pretty amazing. I believe resiliency is key when one is trying to weather the storms in our lives and I'm determined that whatever the outcome, I will be better for it not bitter.

So Cheers to all and stop by Lonny Mag and be inspired.

  2. Awww Lesa,
    Sorry I wasn't around to hug and console you in your time of need. I'm just seeing that you're now without your hubby. During difficult times my mantra is "This too shall pass" and lots of prayers. Lots of hugs to you and I know you'll rebound beautifully. I adore the space and the tree too. Much love my sista!

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.

Love Lisa

a very happy Christmas to one and all

A very happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to all my lovelies and to all peace and joy.
