my week in photos

Outdoor seating at SoCo
Orange County's new design center
it's packed on Saturday's now-with a flotilla of catering trucks

Friday night in old San Juan Capistrano
love the almost floral lines on this old train

Delicious new beads...
from Kenya and Ghana
fabulous finds at the the Grove antique market

So very attracted to these colors and repetitive lines
Los Rios Street

Proud mama moment...
Slater who is National Honor Society President 
at his school
welcomed his brother into the group...
just like his sister did for him two years before.

This weeks accessory out takes

more San Juan inspiration...

inspiration that led to some back yard re-styling...

Wishing you love and joy 
as you style your life



  1. What a peaceful and beautiful collection of photos. May I come lay out on your chaise lounges?

    Congratulations to you and your children. That is really something to be proud of.

    My husband read your comment on my blog the other day regarding your son's interest in firefighting and wanted me to tell you he'd be happy to help him in any way he can with a career in firefighting - he has many friends in the service in southern CA.

    Happy Friday, Tamera

    xo, A
