To Market we went

This little piggy went to market, this little piggy went to... Ahem ! Excuse me . . . Sorry, I got slightly carried away by all the wonderful new things we saw.
 I did make it to market in Dallas this week and my favorite assistant Aubrie tried her best to keep me in control, but you know how it is when a girl sees all the new goodies- well , like Christmas morning for a four year old. Anyway, since a small vacation called me away early, we had to miss the opening day of temporaries ( bummer ) but managed
to snap a few of the best views for you. And more on our little sneak away later...

Because we only had one day to scope out the goods for you- We hit a few highlights- some of the showrooms that we knew had the most creative and colorful displays.

One of the showrooms owned by J. Mackie, Ltd. never fails to disappoint , the owner is always ready to help you find what you are looking for. And his displays really draw you in.
Pottery so pretty you want to rearrange an entire room around it,  Seriously !

Beautiful potttery....several colors to be found.

One of the most popular and trending colors right now in the design industry- Purple ! Several shades here to enjoy. From a deep purple to purple infused with  a little cherry , it’s a hot color.  And note the citron accessories and chair that really make the purple a star here. Nice compliment.. It definitely has the shock value. ( 2nd photo )

If purple is not your color... try this on for a hot new shade. 
  With the new trend in neutrals moving away from beige and creams, and heading in the direction of grey, this lovely shade of tangerine is a natural to really make the room pop. Quite possibly 
THE color of the year. ( Global Views)

Not your average display. Very appealing. Love the softness of the flowers added in to such strong architectural interest.  Yummy!   ( Global Views front window )

Enough for now. . we will do a second part with more photos later in the week. Let us know which colors are calling you this year.  
Try and pick 
your top two and let us know. We know it’s going to be difficult, but we know 
you can do it.

Till next time-

Small Distractions

About one week ago we were once again blessed with the love of a little, but powerful bundle.
He arrived a full week early, but at almost 8 lbs. 8 oz., Mama was happy he decided to come join the party a little early  !
See what you think... he has kept us busy this past week, but it is a very welcome distraction. So, now it’s time to get back to work. New products to add . . . jobs to catch up on, but - it's more fun to kiss on babies..

Welcome our little one... Beckam Evan

My Darling was brave, and went to Houston for a treatment without 
his right hand aide ( Me ) so, he has not had a chance yet to 
see the little sweetie... I think I may be able to swing another visit 
here soon : )  I missed my Darling !  Hmm. . .   Nana needs more smooches from both her littlest & biggest Fans
107 Vintage.   

Auntie Aubrie is fortunate to live close by so she is
ahead in the snuggling department... I need to catch up.

Aubrie & I are off to major market in Dallas this coming week- 
we will snap up some new vintage style goodies , 
search for client’s wishes and snap a few pictures for you -

will post more next week...

Till next time-
Diana & Aubrie

Garden Inspiration

Isn't she lovely ? Guarding all the flowers in your garden .

It seems the last few times we have been in Houston for treatments we have rushed to get back to any resemblance of  a “Normal” life...
Those of you who deal with cancer can relate.  A slice of just the average of life’s little pleasures is what we strive for.  Just to get back home and enjoy !
Anyone in need of some garden ideas ?

Blue... this shade of blue.

On the way home we found a fun stop off- even the median
across the street was entertaining. Such a beautiful nursery with color galore...

Even the birds would agree.

Inspiration at every turn, color galore and too many choices for the
average gardener. ( Which we are.. )  Now to head home and start some projects of our own. Maybe 
a little sweet spot in the back yard ?

Till next time- enjoy the sights and sounds of Spring , and
check out my friend Joy's blog over at
and join her give away-  A lovely book , Vintage by
Nina. It is worth a hop over to check out....
( you will love her blog as well )
