I am a passionate treasure huntress addicted to "the thrill of the hunt." I pride myself on finding unique items and have spent a lifetime collecting unusual and interesting "treasures" which I have used in decorating our home. I shop with an eye for design and look for pieces that I like to call the "jewelry" of the room. Those pieces that have been around accumulating energy thereby bringing life into a space by telling its story or evoking a memory. The allure is found in the details of its journey... condition, provenance and patina. Our collected "treasures" tell the story of who we are. Billy Baldwin said it best, "Decorating is never successful unless it is personal." My treasures are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop and on my companion blog, Shop La Dolfina. The links can be accessed from my sidebar.
"All of life is about energy. It's about the energy that you're putting out; energy that you're drawing to yourself, every day, based on the way you think about your life & the actions that you take. Everybody is an energy field. And because of your attitude, your thinking, your actions; who you choose to be in the world, forms your own field. You are drawing into your field people who are like you... to remind you, to show you, to reflect back to you- who you are. Believe that or not, that is what is happening all the time... and it does not require your belief. It just is. It. Just. Is." -Oprah
Terri, she is gorgeous and your brother is so handsome. You have a great gene pool going there my dear. I agree, Oh to be sixteen again. That is how old I was when I fell in love with my hubby. Oh such sweet memories. Hope you are having a good weekend. I did some shopping at Home Depot and bought some boxwoods. They will go into the ground sometime this week. TTYL Kathysue
She looks really gorgeous. Great dress and fantastic choice of necklace too. Can understand why Dad said no to the after party!
What a beauty Sarah is and I love her dress. Wise dad and a handsome too. It certainly runs in your family Terri!!
What a beautiful girl. And only sixteen? Oh, her poor dad.
She is lovely...and she selected a great dress!
She is really lovely!
She's just gorgeous, what beautiful eyes! Love the dress she chose. Daddy looks very proud, but I'm with him on the afterparty. Cait wasn't allowed to attend the after party until her Senior year - tell Sarah that it didn't kill her:)
Look at that gown! Such amazing taste at such a young age...she is lovely. I don't blame your brother at all re: after party, he sounds like a great Dad. Hard to believe my oldest will look so grown up in just 6 short years...it all goes too fast.
she is lovely. T. Ahhh, the memories....
Oh my goodness could she be any prettier??
Your niece is absolutely beautiful. And how wonderful that her family is watching out for her. I am just back from France and wanted to let you know that you won the silver napkin ring from the Cannes brocante! I am thrilled that you discovered my blog because it has led me here and I just know I am going to have many happy reads here--I checked out the post on your amazing Chinoiserie fireplace!!! Congratulations on your win!
What a beauty ... and that dress !!! They didn't have anything like that for my formal dances back in 1980-something !
She is SO PRETTY and I can tell a very special little lady! I love her necklace~ What a gift your family is!! Miss you!
She is beautiful and the dress is such a lovely pick. Sigh, 16. :0)
