Maximizing a backyard space: Dreaming of green grass in my backyard....... photo re-post from Feb 2011 for my friend at the theater (bench/design reference).
...especially since the winter freeze this weekend killed some of my favorite plants. Waah. Goodbye beautiful umbrella plant. You were gorgeous for a year 1/2!!!
The lost ornament...rolled all the way across from Carol and Dan's home into their neighbor's yard! (Can you find the ornament in the picture?) We were decorating the exterior entrance on a ladder. Super high door installation and beyond heavy garland, but we did it...and wearing 4" heels in Gina's case! ) So funny!
Gina, Mary and I had a great time working with Jude. She's a fun person! Her home is lovely...and her gorgeous backyard was the crime scene of much amazing wine, scrumptious food, and fantastic conversation!
Gina and I love our clients. They are all back and ready to go with the tinsel and holly. We are ready to be creative! Not ready for Christmas bulb light issues as we experienced with this one last year, but ready for the hard work and festive fun! Always gets me in the holiday spirit!
All the decorations, design materials and props are lined up in the hall and furniture is moved around, so don't think I have furnishings placed randomly. We were constantly moving furniture, doors, accessories, etc... as we went from room to room and project to project. Love my Blanca and Katishia who are amazing tv personalities with lots of energy!
I used a wash and glaze to create this Country French Treatment - 2008 New Construction for Patty's Bellaire Home
Reposting for another client. She wants to look at what I painted for Patty and have me do a modified version of this for her. Here you go, Karen! See you soon!
Fundraiser for Pets In The City - Kirk and I went as Vegas High Rollers (which was the theme). Raised over $15,000! Happy for the animals they save!
I was a Vegas showgirl. You can't see the large white feathers added onto the back of this headpiece, but they were really spectacular.
