Summer time is on its way!

Some of my favorite memories of growing up is spending my summers outside with family and friends having picnics, going swimming, catching fireflies.
My favorite part about summer is how it brings everyone out of there homes and brings them together. Every weekend there is something to do outside and then the summer evenings, sitting out side with my family telling jokes and just having a good time, for me life does not get better then that.
I hope you have a memorable weekend!!

Button Button Who's Got the Button?

I have always loved button jars. There is so much history in them, its a great collector item. I recently came across this great project for extra buttons, a Button Bouquet. As a florist this is a must have. I started mine but was surpirsed how many buttons it actually takes to make a good sized bouquet. Here are some great Button Bouqets for inspiration.

Betsy Johnson's Penthouse and Barbies Dream Home

Betsy Johnson's Penthouse

My daughter loves Betsy Johnson's designs. She will be getting her own place in the fall while going away to school, so we have been looking at different decorating ideas. While searching for ideas I came across an article about the life size dream home that was decorated by Johnathan Adler, to celebrate Barbies 50th Anniversay. You can find more information about it at
I love how Jonathan Adler made this cool mirror design with a lot of Malibu Barbies.

Front Porch

Homes like these with a large porch remind me of family and good times. I love to sit out side in the summer evenings with my family and catch up on all the day's events.
