I have this on my bulletin board in my office.  I saw it in something a few years ago and thought it was sooo cool.  It's so true!!  

I've been catching up on a few personal things.  Its been a crazy time.  A time to learn and a time to grow! Life's too short!!  I'm exciting about the rode ahead! I'm looking forward to being in touch with all of you! 

Happy Saturday and remember

A special shout out to Natalie who tweeted, "I want my Cups Of Coffey Blog back!"

And it poured!!  I noticed tons of girls in these darling Hunter Rain Boots..  I wrote about these a few weeks ago but wanted you to know its real!!  Get your self a pair of boots for fall.  Whats cool is that Hunter is also selling an insulated sock to wear with the boots when its really cold!! You know how painful it is to wear rubber boots when cold so those socks are a must!! 

Boots can be worn in rain or shine!!

whatcha gonna do with all that stuff??

I Forgot to add from my post yesterday something sooooo important!!  When you are decorating your home or looking at your wardrobe...
What do you already have? 

What can you wear to the party thats in your closet  or in decorating redo a family heirloom??

For a very lucky few its awesome to inherit furniture or decorative items from Aunt Sue or Granma Lovey....The issue is.....A lot of those inherited items need to be redone.  It is sometimes not worth the money to buy 30 yards of fabric for a sofa.  Then you must pay to have it put together.....Don't forget the new down stuffing.....
All to say this Was Lovey's........  So think about it!!

I will say that it is fun to use something like a table, a mirror, a lamp a chair...something that you can paint or rewire and make it your own....

 It's fun and its alot cheaper!!!

Now, lets talk about that party....or function.  Wow, sometimes it can be overwhelming when you open that closet and its unorganized and just a mess...I think it is so important before a season to look at what you have and try to regroup.  First of all, When was the last time you wore it???  Alot of people think a year toss....well I'm more into...


What is it?  Quality? Classic? Condition? So let's take this approach??   If it is a trendy outfit that you purchased at Let's just say at "Forever 21" 2 years ago....Toss.  Otherwise, look at it.....and assess... Bottom line what I am trying to say.....Look what you have before you go out and buy something...I cannot tell you how many times that I have bought something new all to realize later that I had something so similar.

 I didnt need to buy a new outfit!!!  I wish that I had that $ back!!!

Y'all Have a great day!!!

Money, Money, Money

You know I was Thinking alot today about what to write...... and I came to the conclusion that I needed to talk about THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF DECORATING YOUR HOME  AND WHAT TO Buy this season to WEAR.....


I'm not going to lie and say that I've always been good at this but I am trying ......And right now more than ever!!!!  I will share more of that....later...

So Let's start with some key items....

1. How much $ do you have to spend on the project?
     get an idea of what to spend....Very few people can just go out and buy whatever 
     they want without a care in the world.
Who knows how long their $ lasted

2. Don't freak out and rush the project..
      Take your time....Try not to be last minute...Even when you have a party to go to Try not to just run out and Find "THE PERFECT DRESS"...... 
       ....Probably gonna over spend and then not LOVE it!!

3. Spurge on one major piece
     Spend a little more on an important piece like a grand piano, a breakfront, a 

4. Collect slowly
     Shop around.....go to Flea Markets, Read the Paper for Sales....Take your time!!

       Above all have a good time!!  It's your style and your dime!!  Enjoy!!!

stay cool...

What's Your Point??

Gotta Make A Statement!!!

I Love My Shoes!!!!

Make a statement in all that you do whether its in your home or how you dress...

Your whole room can be very basic except for that one focal point.  Your focus can be a TV,  a wall of pictures, a fireplace, a piece of furniture, a mirror......

 Its fun and it helps to decorate around the most important part of the room..

A Flat screen over mantle Framed with a Wonderful Frame

Wood Around Flat Screen on Brick Wall

Awesome Fireplace!!!  Love the Candles!!!

Cool Wall and Fireplace

Wall of Pics
Love the Mirror!!

Make a Point somewhere!!!

Kentucky Chic


The way you dress goes the same....I think its easy to get dressed when you just throw on something very easy and basic and add  something that stands out...It can be a variety of things.....Some ideas are.....a Hat, a Necklace, a Cool pair of Shoes or Boots, a Large Grouping Of Bracelets, some Glasses....
Same pic as Thursday....Sorry just love the Jeans with these Bracelets

Yayyy!!!! Missoni

September 13th....Missoni.. clothes and home furnishings sold at Target

Missoni is an Italian Company that is famous for its awesome Knitware.  The patterns in the knitware are always special.  The look of striped, geometric abstracts and the special colors are always important in Missoni's look.  It will be interesting to see what the line looks like and what the quality is....
When The Calypso line for Target was released I was a bit disappointed in the quality.  Lets just say that you cannot take short cuts on quality!!! 

I see for the Missoni Line that there will be home furnishings as well as clothes.  I am anxious to see the sheets and towels.... 

Lets get excited.....helpful hint.....I checked the website when shopping for Calypso a few days before and was able to shop at

Have a great QUALITY day!!!
