Apartment Therapy ..... needed daily

image from Apartment Therapy, LA
I love to peek inside others homes and see how they decorate it and mold it into their own space. Don't you?

That's one reason why I love Apartment Therapy. I don't live in an apartment, but my house might as well be one. I love that I get to see how people manage in small spaces, how others make it not just liveable BUT beautiful, which encourages me to make my space one that I love to come home to.

Well I'm packaging up some originals that were sold this weekend. Of course, I was excited about that. But I didn't expect it to be hard to let them go. Sounds silly I know, but there's only one original, right? Anyway.. hopefully they will be plenty more to sell in the future and I'll get used to the feeling. : ) Or I'll just hoard all the originals for myself.. .ha!

Home town love: Jersey City

I was born and raised in Jersey City and I loved it. I haven't lived there for the past 5yrs since I've been married. But I'm there visiting family all the time. I would love to go back and live on the waterfront that is developing like crazy these days. Of course I would have a hard time convincing my husband, who has always lived in the suburbs.

Here's what I've been drooling over lately...........77 Hudson

Monday blogging's Monday already. The beach was lovely. Perfect day. Nice cool breezes. Great company. Just can't get enough.

On Sunday mornings my husband and I usually have coffee(Dunkin Donuts of course) and read the Star Ledger, but I decided to treat myself to the Sunday edition of the NY Times. Oh sooo nice. I love it.
I really should subscribe.

Sunday evening I watched HBO's new show 'Tell me you love me' and the new season premiere of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'. And of course I switched back and forth to see a little of the VMA's.
Especially the opening act.... on which I will comment no further.

Irwin boots update

So the boots came today around 11:30 ish... so cool about the timing, but that's about it. I was kind of bummed out when I opened the package and saw that they were not evenly colored. And it doesn't look like it is supposed to be that way. Meaning, you can see streaks of darkness as if someone tried to waterproof them. It's really hard to take a good pic with a cell phone... but it really looks like someone did a poor staining job. I just can't imagine that these are what the boots looked like on the shelves of Nine West.

I wish I knew someone else who has them. It doesn't mention anything in the reviews or description about it. I'm thinking maybe someone tried to waterproof them, messed them up and returned them.

The lighting is terrible in these I don't know if you can really see how bad it looks.
I'm so disappointed.

Behind the Label

Last night I watched a couple segments of 'Behind the Label' on NYCTV. They profiled Vera Wang and Carolina Herrera. Sooo good. Love hearing the stories behind these ladies. And especially that they started their own businesses later in life.

Can you believe Vera is 58? She looks amazing. Love her personality, she's got spunk.

Carolina is just one classy lady.

Zappos, you are my new friend

Yes, I've heard of Zappos. But I've never really spent the time looking around, because there are TOO many shoes to look through. Well today my friend was raving about Zappos and the 4 shoes she just ordered that will be delivered NEXT day. No shipping charge.

BACK UP... did she say NEXT DAY FREE!!! She did. So I said I must check it out. And I ordered these Nine West Irwin boots. I'm so excited that they will be here tomorrow.

How crazy is that... and how did I not know about this! And I forgot to mention if they don't fit you can send them back, no shipping charge again. Sighhhh! : )

Domino gallery

I still want to create an outside space filled with tons of glass lanterns and even chandeliers.

This photo is from Domino's gallery. So just imagine 10x the lanterns...... with more of a moroccan feel..

Distressed and pretty

I was searching on google for how to distress a dresser. Sometimes it's so hard to find exactly what you want. I have this old, very old, ugly brown dresser that is not even in the house at this point. And I want to give it that old distressed feel, in a light TEAL color.

So anyway... I stumbled upon the lovely blog of Amelia.... and her pink distressed dresser!!

Isn't it just gorgeous?!
