ROYGBIV…comes to life

ROYGBIV has always been a clever way to remember the colors in the rainbow and color wheel.  Well I actually had the opportunity to spend a few fun days in ROYGBIV! Not possible you say…wrong you are!

ROYGBIV truly exists as a town in New Jersey….Cape May, New Jersey. Cape May is an absolutely lovely Victorian seaside resort town that became popular in the mid 18th century and is BEYOND charming and colorful!

If it’s not on your list it is a must add. The town is not just a summer town, it is beautiful place to visit in the fall and during the holidays.

somewhere is the rainbow,

Bringing Back the Brooch

BBB

I always fall for the gorgeous brooches during my treasure hunting adventures but then I end up talking myself out of bringing them home knowing I am not really a brooch wearing gal.

Well guess what??? New day…New dawn!

In fact I am a brooch wearing gal…just in a modified way. In a statement necklace kind of way.

Here is my latest fashion DIY project. Take one spectacular brooch and one complimentary necklace and you have just created a unique one of a kind “So You” statement necklace.

Voila!

I have my muumuu, some stylish protective eyewear and a 99% (ish) viewing location…sounds like a great day to get my eclipse on!

* Bonus Track…not only was it a magical experience this afternoon but the magic continued hours later as I reviewed all of the random photos on my phone from the day…

Happy Eclipse Day!

Show & Tell…the 2017 127 finale

Day Three…Frankfort, KY to College Hill, OH ( and then back to ATL)

Bring on the day…

 

Today was a first….we made it to Ohio! What will 2018 bring? Michigan perhaps?

 

Although I absolutely love the treasure hunting, the scenic road trip and of course the pancake dinners at Cracker Barrel what I love, love, love the most are the amazing, kind and interesting people I meet along the way. This year we ended the trip in College Hill, Ohio and met such a wonderful, spirited, joyful group of people from Serve NCH doing great things not only for their immediate community but also the greater community by collecting medicine bottle for Doctors Without Borders. Good vibes…

 

Ta-Da…

 

 

Only 353 days until next year…Whose in?

It’s 127 time…Show & Tell Day One

Can you believe it…it’s that time of year again. The days are long, the weather is warm and the 127 is on!

If you aren’t familiar with what the 127 is I will quickly get you up to speed…it is the World’s Longest Yard Sale! Yes you heard it right…it is held the first week of August , it’s on rural route 127, it runs from Alabama through Michigan and it’s 690 miles long!

Whenever I share my enthusiasm of this epic adventure I get one of the following two responses…Oh wow that sounds AMAZING, what’s it like? or eww!  I get more wows that ewws but I get it, treasure hunting isn’t for everyone! So for those who are curious instead of a photo recap of this year’s trip I decided to do my 127 Show & Tell video style…

One rental mini van, three days, four states and 961 miles and this is how it went down…

Day One…Signal Mountain, TN to Crossville, TN

 

 

Check out tomorrow for day two’s clips from the road!

Dream Textures

bathroom textures

bathroom textures two

Although I am a total ROYGBIV gal and color is my middle name (not really it’s Suzanne) for my master bath remodel that is just wrapping up I leaned hard into textures…when I say hard I mean I followed my normal gig of more is more. AND I LOVE IT!!!!

These are the textures I combo plattered into the bath of my dreams. I will have a reveal and some fun before and afters but still waiting for the final touches!

Now onto the guest bath…
