Old to New

So, I have this purse, but it is old and super stained. I have brought it in to be cleaned with no luck!

This weekend I was reading about dying leather with Tarrago leather dye. Has anyone ever done this? I like the idea of keeping the patient leather parts lime green and dying just the suede. Here are some colors I am deciding between:
Steel Gray



Taupe Gray

Girl Crush

What a different a bleach and cut can do. Model of the moment Britt Maren-perfect!

Spring shoes. Warm. Grass. Wishful day dreams.

Fuschia wall

I am toying with painting one wall in my guest bedroom fuschia. The other 3 would be either a really light, cool gray or a light blue/green color-like sea glass. What do you think?

Vintage bar ware

When a bad mood hits, my mind turns to cocktails. (I know, I know) This got me looking at vintage bar ware for my bar cart. How cute are these finds?

Rainy feeling

It is not raining here, it is still far too cold for that. But inside my heart it feels like rain. Not the warm, soft, clean kind of rain, but the cold, icy painful rain.

Coolest Dresser EVER

Featured today on 1stdibs is a dresser and a night table created by Wrongwoods by Richard Woods & Sebastian Wrong. If I had A LOT of extra pocket dough I would pick myself up one or two.

Pictures on Walls

I just found this great site - they have amazing prints that are affordable and unique. Here are some that I would like to see on my walls.

Same thought

So when Googling "boxing" these images from a line called Boxing Kitten came up. I think the prints are amazing. Perfect for brightening a less than average day.


Today I need to put up a fight for what I love. Hopefully these images will inspire the fire inside of me.

Motorcycle Lust

Maybe it's because the temperature outside right now is -3 that I am dreaming about motorcycles. Here is a picture of my make and model of bike, but mine has a sweet sissy bar!

I would love this bike. Hot. The guy is not bad either.
 But this is the bike I would give my big toe for.

Inspiration Board

Here are a few images that I have hanging on my bulletin board at work. These images make me feel warm and fuzzy when my fingers are ice cold.
