Weekend Randomness

The weekend slowly snuck up on me.

I've had my coffee, and now I'm enjoying an ice cold glass of sweet tea,
still waiting for the monsoon storm that we are expecting this weekend.

During the Summer, the weekends just melt in with the rest of the days of the week!
Today is an exception, it's a busy day over here, I've got my daughter's dresser I'm working on,
back to school items to cross off my list, a little mid-summer gardening, and I'm adding learning to sew to the mix!

Luxurious Spa Master Bath

This is the master bath I've been dreaming of.
Calm and elegant, a master bath that I could transform into a spa getaway!
Leaving my cares behind, as I relax in this large soaking tub.
One thing I've been considering in investing, is transforming
our master bath into a spa bath!
Complete with crystal chandelier and fluffly robes and towels.

Here are some amazing ways to turn your bathroom into a weekend spa getaway,
without breaking the bank!

Aside from the extreme heat of the day living here in Arizona,
there is something magical that happens around dusk.
As the sun goes down, the night comes alive.
Dining al fresco doesn't have to be too much of a challenge living
here in the desert.
It's the perfect time to get out and enjoy the fresh air and entertain
with family and friends.

A couple of my favorite things, fresh flowers, citrus flavored drinks,
 crusty French bread, cheese and a glass of wine!

The color Turquoise

I began to wonder if it wasn't at all a coincidence that the
meaning of turquoise is calm and cooling
recharges energy and restores balance;
since living in a place that can be hot as hell
for 4 months out of the year, and that it
is mined in dry climates.
This gorgeous color just so happens to be my favorite color, and
I am swooning over this dresser.


If you are needing a good laugh, you really need to stop in
and visit my dear friend Benita. It's this post from her, that I think
of when I saw this.

I love all things coastal I absolutely love this faux coral,
 and so now I am on a mission to find some


What I love about blackberries, are that they perfectly sweet, 
without being overly sweet!
They are a Summertime treat, not just to snack on,
but a treat to harvest.
Over even better yet still,
snacking on them while you are picking them!

For breakfast, I enjoyed a serving of my Blackberry-Cinnamon Cobbler,
with my cup of coffee.
After all, they are full of antioxidants and fiber .

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Until next time,


  1. That bathroom is gorgeous! I hope you get your spa bathroom CB!

  2. Blackberry cinnamon cobbler for breakfast? Yum! What a lovely idea!

  3. Christine, you are so sweet and thank you! Sticks are great decor fillers. I've got some extra...wish I could get them to you without them breaking into a million pieces. :-) That bathroom is gorgeous and I cannot wait to see your daughter's dresser! I used to sew...once. You've seen my craft projects so you know exactly why I no longer sew! Hope you've had a fabulous weekend my sweet friend! Hugs!!

  4. I love Benita. She cracks me the hell up and she's so sweet :)

    I hope you have fun learning to sew. All I can tell you is, have a lot of patience, because you're going to need it if you're anything like me lol
