A Touch of Green

IMG_8394Happy Monday! A “touch of green” is perfect this time of year. It feels fresh and alive after the dormant winter season and perhpas that’s one of the reasons that it’s associated with the holiday this month. Here are just a few of the greens that caught my eye this past year.

Artist to Watch – Jenn Thatcher

Render18I love discovering new artists!! Jenn Thatcher is an abstract artist and her work is captivating and energetic…I also love that she’s from Dallas.

I could see her work in my home and thought many of you might like her style, as well. Since her work speaks for itself, here it is!Render4 Render7 Render11 Render14 Render16Test Render17 Render19 Render20 Render21 Screen Shot 2016-02-23 at 11.50.17 PMJenn’s work can be found in a couple of galleries and she is also available for commissioned pieces. I especially love her works with the flecks of gold.

Now, I just need to find an empty wall!

Cinco de Mayo – Personalized Piñatas

Happy May! 

There are a lot of fun days to celebrate this month: The Kentucky Derby, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day, but one of my all time favorites is Cinco di Mayo!!! I’m sure it’s a Texas-thing. Tex-Mex is hands down my favorite food category. Give me a a basket of chips and guacamole and a fresh made margarita (on the rocks with salt, please), and I am a happy gal!

I’ve been playing around with table settings for a casual celebration and had to share my new source for custom, mini piñatas

Lula Flora will let you select as many tissue colors + 1 metallic color for your custom piñata! I chose hot pink, lime green, orange, purple, yellow and gold metallic. 
These are very well made, with a hidden opening for candy or small treats. I’m not sure I have the heart to rip these apart, as they make for such a cute party favor or place card for a fiesta any time!

Wishing you mucho fun this weekend! Whether you’re watching the Derby with mint juleps or sitting on the sidelines of your child’s sporting events!

Life is the fiesta!! Make yours full of color!!
