Who Are YOU?

These posters have been floating around blogs for some time, with the most popular being Keep Calm and ROCK On. I finally checked out the website where I found a few that appeal to me. This one is my absolute favorite!

I can’t say that this has been the best year, it’s been really tough. But I will say for the first time I’ve listened to my feelings and I’m not brushing things aside. I started my etsy shop, which led me to start my first blog. I learned I love photography, and interior design. I never realized by learning how to knit last December, my life, and my outlook would change so much. I am writing again which I absolutely love, creating knit scarves, taking pictures, and finally appreciating my mom’s love for antiques…..trust me NOBODY ever thought that would happen. As I write this I’d like to thank all of you for making this my year!

Now it’s up to you, to finish this project. Is there anything that speaks to you at the moment? Please share!


I’ll take these please

It seems like bamboo chairs are everywhere from Design Sponge, to the Love List and in black at Porch Light Interiors. I usually don’t fall so quickly for furniture, but I am in looooove!!!!

They are featured on Ebay, with the auction ending October 5th. I can just envision them in black, or red, maybe yellow or bright pink? So much you can do with these chairs! What can I say, they have my <3!

Fido’s Palace

In honor of Pet design month, Apartment Therapy has been showcasing different unique items for the home with your furry family members in mind. These unique dog/cat palaces are created with only the finest fabrics from France, glued on with natural glue, and it is all done by hand by the fine people at Prestige Houses. Their motto is “know to respect the nature of wood and fabric; provide our customers the largest choice of available materials.” To see these houses is to believe them!

Sam Edelman Gladiator Sandals

Sam Edelman Gladiator Sandals

I can totally imagine myself wearing these with my new fingerPaints nail polish in “shades of dark“, but these gladiators by Sam Edelman (Ginger) have been sold out for months. That is unless somebody has the hook up on a nice new pair in size 8! It’s still over 90 in Cali!!!

High Hopes

My brother was changing the channels tonight, and left Rocky Balboa on for my Grandma & I to watch. After asking him to change it a few times (I know I’m lazy) I stopped pleading. As somebody who has NEVER seen a Rocky movie, unlike my blogging buddy Maegan, I didn’t know what to expect. I knew he had the heart of a champion, but thought the majority of the movie would be about fighting, blood and guts. I was wrong! This has to be one of the greatest movies of all time. I am officially a Rocky follower!

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!” Rocky Balboa to his son

Green Paint Stripper????

I was inspired by Project Ecoart to finally do something about my dresser/parlor. She posted this photo

I have a dresser I had no idea what I was going to do with. It has been in the garage for about a year, because I permanently disfigured it when I tried to strip the paint last year.

I would show you the entire photo but the garage is a disaster. I am on a mission to finish this project and not use it as a storing piece! I had to laugh today, I was looking up green paint strippers. For those of you who have not used paint strippers, they’re quite potent, the smell is awful, and you’re supposed to use goggles and a mask while using it. So today, I decided to do a search on “green paint strippers” and this is what I got:

I mean I know my name is Candi, and I have been teased about my name, and I’m sure you can all imagine what people say….but I REFUSE to take this as a sign! lol
