Where do the weekends go? This weekend went by very quickly for me, and I did not get as much accomplished as planned....but did spend quite a bit of time in my studio working on a few projects and straightening up the mess. Unlike many of the fabulous studios that I see that are just so inspirational and have all sorts of jars of goodies out for display, Mr. Shabbyfufu does not like clutter.... so when we recently remodeled that room, I had to plan on putting everything away behind cabinet doors. Since my feminine style takes up so much of this house and he has to sleep in a pink bedroom, I guess that wasn't too much to ask! Our cabinet guy knew how much I love blush pink, so he added a slight tint to the cabinets to make me a happy camper:-). Projects worked on this weekend for the website included some more teacup lighting and a Parisian style dress form. Look for these early in the week on the website, as I don't have the pictures taken just yet (just this preview).
We went over to one of Mr. Shabbyfufu's clients homes today, who just came back from a summer spent at her "cottage" in Maine and she brought us some fresh crab. Here are a few photos of her incredible property here in Miami...which is an amazing place that occupies about 12 acres on Biscayne Bay in beautiful Coconut Grove. I didn't get any indoor photos today, the outdoors are the epitome of tropical beauty.....a little hard to capture on this gray day.
Just beyond the gates, all of these beautiful palms....so lush!
On the drive down to the bay, which leads into the ocean. Majestic Royal Palms
Down by the bay....(where the watermelons grow....just kidding, but I love that kiddie song). Really stormy, gray day here in Florida.
That's it for now, but check back in.....lots planned for the week ahead!
Have a great one......
