Fashion Friday - A New Purse

Friday, October 24, 2014

Are you like me when trying to find a new purse?
#1. I don't want to pay a lot of money...sorry "coach" none of those for me
#2. I dont want a huge honkin purse that could fit the kitchen sink in it...seriously have you seen the sizes of purses out there these days??
#3. I want it to be light weight because it kills my back and shoulder to lug around a heavy bag.
#4. I want the inside to be light in color instead of a dark hole where I can't find things
#5. I want it to be stylish and I want it to pretty much go with almost everything!
Is that too much to ask??? Well....I found one!

While visiting my mom we decided to do a little shopping and went to Charming Charlie's! If you are not familiar with this store it is a fun accessories store that sells all kinds of purses, jewelry, scarves, shoes and some clothing items...the cool thing about this shop is that everything in the store is displayed and organized by color!!! I first heard of this shop while living in Texas and LOOVED it! Here is the inside of my and white striped lining so cute!

So happy with My new $39.00 purse...someone even asked me if it was a Kate Spade purse!

Friday, October 17, 2014

Do you like my blue suede shoes? They are not really suede...I don't really know what they are made of but they look cool!
Fashion Friday - blue suede shoesI have always loved colorful shoes! I remember when I was in elememtary school and my mom bought me some sneakers...I got two was yellow and one was pink! Loved them!
My mom just reminded me of another story that began my affinity for colorful shoes....I was only 18 mos old and Santa Claus brought a pair of patent leather red shoes! When I opened the box I grabbed them and held them up to my heart and exclaimed "OH MY PITTY WED SHOES" and that began my love affair with colorful shoe!

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

My daughter and I attended a really cute

DIY Country Wedding Reception

in a barn last weekend and I tried to take as many photos as I could...but alas some of the pics are not so great but I think you will still see the details well enough to enjoy!

They used large mason jars that they painted a yummy blue color. They placed the jars on a round piece of bark that has lace and pearls on it.

Around the main centerpiece they used thrift store mini goblets with small bouquets of fresh flowers in them.

Some of the goblets were spray painted to match the big blue mason jars.

Dessert Table

I fell in love with this side board painted blue and used as a dessert table. You will notice that my friend made a few of her cake plates using my idea that I posted here..IKEA no glue cake plate they are nice a big and hold a lot of goodies! Another fabulous idea they did was to use big glass jars filled with cookies.

Soup and Grilled Cheese Bar

A cute chandelier hung above the soup and mini grilled cheese sandwich bar! Very cute idea! I couldn't get a great picture because so many people were blocking the soup bar area. Another great idea to crate a backdrop using old farm house doors leaned up against the wall with a darling rag banner strung across need for nails, tape or staples!

An old crate made a great pedestal for this pretty urn filled with fresh roses!

This barn is pretty good sized as you can tell looking at the crowd of people but they really made it feel cozy and cute with all their details. The tablecloths were burlap with brown silky blanket trim all around the edge to give it a nice look.
