Shower the people you love with love


Another sweet nice of ours is getting married this July. Last year we baked our infamous white almond butter cream cupcakes for the bridal shower. This year, her triplet sister is getting married and back by popular demand, another delicious batch of cupcakes will be made. 330

I shot this photograph, while on a hike in Colorado last year. I don’t know the bride and groom, but had to capture the moment.

My vintage 1958 Shasta

Join me on an adventure of sorts. Last summer I purchased a vintage 1958 Shasta camper from my friend Paul. He has been a long time collector of vintage trailers & all things Mid-Century Modern. I’ve been obsessed with the Shasta camper since we first became instant friends while camping in 1993. Little did I know back then that I would actually have one to call my own one day. So I will share with you glimpses of what it has taken to get my little “cupcakz” back into shape.

Oh and I have a new nick-name, “Betty” to go along with it…thanks Paulie!IMG_9423


Puppy Love

Our sweet shih tzu “Lily” has turned 12 this year. In celebration we purchased her a new dog bed to enjoy. Have you heard of Molly Mutt yet? Genious.
Simply stuff your Molly Mutt doggie duvet with your old clothes, towels, pillows, etc.  Your dog’s favorite scent? It’s you! As a result, this is the dog bed dogs love. I couldn’t be happier with the design, quality and extremely fast shipping. So head on over to Molly Mutt and check out their products for yourself.



The adventure of life is to learn. The goal of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The secret of life is to dare. The beauty of life is to give. The joy of life is to love! -William Ward

First blog post

As my children have told me, I have a way with words. As an artist, I appreciate the spoken & unspoken means of communication. I have been reading some wonderful blogs that have really made an impact on me as an Artist, Wife, Mom, Realtor, and admirer of all things beautiful. Cottage & Vine, Emily A. Clark, Simply Seleta, C.Style, and Elements of Style are all filled with delightful tips of home, family and personal interests. I then felt compelled to do the same, in hopes of inspiring others. I don’t have anything specific in mind, just sharing with you glimpses of my everyday life, and areas of interests & fascinations. So follow me on this journey, in hopes of making your morning cup of coffee a bit more enjoyable….”Hello World”.
