Potter - This photograph was taken in Pakistan capturing the beauty that is created by the hands of the people. Here you see a man’s hands forming a bowl identical to the tens and twenties he has already created that morning. What you don’t see is that he sits on a flat rock on the floor surrounded by sand and gravel under a tattered tent shielding him from the blistering heat. But these conditions do not effect the perfection of his craft. In the hour I spent with him, never did a bowl turn out to be anything other than what he expected, perfect.

Peacock - Just doing the average touristy things in Florida, buying tickets for the Everglades when above the ticket booth presumably taking her afternoon stroll, appeared this peacock. Such a beautiful bird.

Dress Shopping

This is a sponsored post - All opinions are my own


Bridesmaid Dresses UK


I don't do dresses very often. I have a few that I whip out on special occasions but nothing really fancy. A few months ago M had an office party and for the first time spouses were invited and there I was with nothing to wear. I dress sort of modestly.. no plunging necklines, no bare legs.. if it's a short dress I'd usually where tights underneath.. nothing backless.. which makes dress shopping hard and I end up usually not buying or wearing. But after the office party I decided to always keep an eye out for something, always have a dress or two hanging in the closet especially for occasions like these..

MillyBridal UK has a beautiful selection.. I found myself loving so many dresses, I may have gotten a bit carried away.. so humor me please.


This black and white dress is so pretty. It simple and classic and the lace detail makes it really stand out.

 

This pink and white one is similar to the one above, but I like the flowing fabric and it is a more daytime summery vibe to it

These two are simply gorgeous.. I love the color, the lace detail, the flowy skirt.. I wish I had somewhere fancy enough to wear these.. I need to get invited to a wedding or a gala or something.. stat! first dress and second dress. In case you do have somewhere fancy to go to this summer here are some stunning blue bridesmaid dresses you need to check out.


With all the beautiful dresses I have to say this one is my favorite. It is long and flowy which I guess you can tell is something I like. The 3/4 sleeves and neckline fit the bill for what I'm looking for. I can dress it up or down and it's not so fancy I'd never get a chance to wear it. We have got a WINNER!

The Formal Living Room

This post has been long over due.. while we started working on this room almost exactly a year ago it has taken us on and off all that time to get it just right. It is our least used room, saved mostly for guests so we weren't really in a hurry. And in true crappy blogger fashion I forgot to take before pictures! But I assure you it was an ugly drab green.

After picking colors for four different rooms I was all out of colors. The formal room came with a chair rail which I love but which also meant I had to choose two more colors.. argh.

Thank you Behr.com this is not a sponsored post It was a life saver when it came to picking out colors. We don't usually bring home samples to test out.. we go with our gut and just paint. 


Too Blue?


I like the purple.. the screen shots don't do it justice but M said no blue. So what goes with purple that's not going to make it a girly room.. or too out there.. no oranges or reds.. how about a tan coffee color?

Once again, screenshots do not do these colors justice.. and we did not get samples.. I was freaking out while it was being painted.. we do not like browns.. our go to neutral is gray.


Behr's Tibetan Temple on top and Pure Earth on the bottom.. I love paint color names. So we went ahead with these rich colors but when it came to picking a carpet or a sofa we were at a loss for what colors we should go for.. we lightened up the room with new creamy white carpet from Home Depot. And scoured the stores for a sofa. We really like the tufted style and hadn't gotten a chance to use it yet.

On Overstock we managed to find both a beautiful sofa and coffee table set..but there was one little problem.



We were looking for something gold and all the we found that we liked and was in our price range was silver.. Spray paint saves the day.. I was a little scared at first..



They turned out beautifully. 


I needed to add another set of colors to the room and I fell in love with these pillow covers when in Karachi. So orange and blue it is.


I hate buying curtains.. thank god for return policy's.. after trying out various curtain I finally found a winner..




We put up our family portraits.. some gorgeous black and white horses


Decorating is a fun though sometimes frustrating process.. happy to be done.. even happier with the outcome :)
