A Celebration With Chandeliers

                    I joined my daughter on her birthday for lunch. We ate at this beautiful
                    little restaurant with a chandelier in every room and eating outside on
                    the patio with a beautiful pond and waterfall in Los Alamitos, California.
                                                It's called Shenandoah at the Arbor.                       

                                     A waterfall on one side of the small foot bridge.

                                    A koi pond on the other side of the foot bridge.

Two nights before, I captured these shots of earrings on the
guests at another celebration for my daughter.
Gorgeous neck-couldn't resist this beautful shot.

My talented designer friend.

Summer Sparkle

I was at Nordstrom's the other day and found a ton of bangles.
It made me aware that bangles are a big deal this summer.

All these beautiful bangles are at Nordstom's from $25 to $54.

                                            Summer white all at T. J. Maxx from $12.95.

                                                   This is what I'm wearing this summer
                                            Hawaiian sparkle for summer wearing.
                                           Similar can be found at Big Island Jewelers.

Summer Brights

                                                Here is my wish list, if summer lasted forever.
This exquisite outfit is from
From runway to backyard-
Modern, dressed-up, casual.
If you fall in love with this
little seahorse, it's  going to
set you back $465.

Another colorful combination from NM.

This is from one of my favorite designers Johnny Was. I found this in
a Neiman Marcus catalog. They have an excellent selection of
Johhny Was. And on their website, too.

This I love and it's Johnny Was from NM. It's on sale in
the NM catalog for $160 and the scarf for $60. 

This is the new IPhone cover on my daughter's phone.

My Shabby Chic Chandelier

This is my new shabby chic chandelier that I hung this week in my
laundry room. You can see my laundry room from the kitchen and
even a little into the dining room. It's a small chandelier, as you can
see from the photos below.

Here it is with the swag.

Here is a view of it from my kitchen. You can
see a corner of my stove on the right.

This was my inspiration. I found this image
at the wonderful blog House Of Turquoise.
The original source is from Cameras and Chaos.
