I found two metal Super Seahorse emblems off of a old Johnson boat motor.. I believe they are from the 1940's..very vintage.. I think they originally were silver..but had this blue paint on them. I had the perfect place for one.. in the bathroom I just did the mosaic on.. Real close to the seahorse mosaic. Perfect !

Love the look of a denim jacket over a dress or with a tee.. dress it up, go casual.. I had a new Bill Blass Denim jacket that I never wore. Then suddenly I started seeing denim vests and jackets all over the place.. I took that jacket out of the closet, and I bleached it, washed it, put some sand paper to it, to age it.. even to a razor blade to make some holes.. It looks well worn and comfy.. THEN to take it up a notch.. I sewed pearls on the lapels and the pocket flaps.. during my "aging" process some how a button came off the pocket. But I added a cute little pin over the pocket and no one notices the button is gone.. I found me a denim vest online this week.. can't wait for it to arrive, so I can sew some more pearls.. I have some sundresses to wear with it this spring and summer.

I saw some jeans over at crushpartyblog spot a few years back...go see them on her blog.
Dear Robin from CandyCreekblogspot was here this summer and brought me some great Breakfast at Tiffanys note pads, etc. She's a doll !
I got 3 mosaic's almost finished this week, and cleaned up in the room, so I can sew a few things..trying some clothing revamps, adding some lace on some things. Tomorrow I paint the living room.. THAT is calling to me.. I want the fresh coat of paint in the Tiffany box blue in that room..yes, that color is taking over the house. I love love it..and it makes me feel happy and calm, all at the same time.
