Apparently it’s one of the “no no’s” of the over 5o category . . .
Not to wear graphic tee’s . . .
Well, as Patti from (notdeadyet) says, “too bad, so sad”.
Because sometimes it’s just a whole lot of fun to wear tees . . .
especially one with some attitude . . .
Although, I will say, there is something just not right about mickey with an attitude.
So, how about you, my fellow friends, do you enjoy breaking those ridiculous rules once in a while?
Linking up with Patti for Visible Monday in hopes of seeing more breaking rule friends.

When Tori (my daughter) came for a visit she asked me if I would help throw a tea party baby shower for her wonderful friend.
Well, you know me and tea parties . . .
Since she’s expecting a little girl we easily decided on a pink, pastel, and gold theme.
First designing the invite . . .
then adding the layers . . .
(here’s my little OCD or organization part of me)
Cutting the edges of the invoice with crafting scissors gives the perfect blend of texture
*Glued them to the pink card stock
*layered on a soft pink velum with a pink ribbon
*then added on the “your invited” tag
After the invites were mailed out, we began with the pink, pastels, and gold decorations.
First hanging a banner . . .
And poms from the chandelier . . .
The day before the shower I put together the flower arrangements by using two gold long stem vases and placing floral foam in the center, then I simply bought a few super market bundle of pastel flowers and started cutting and arranging.
Then we added more pink and gold accessories . . .
Like gold books, a glittered leaf, pink bubble gum, and individual potted flowers which we placed in pink and white treat containers (for the guest to take home).
Pink Tea Pots . . .
Once the table center piece is finished . . .
We set the place settings, this time we used my gold rimmed white china layered with different pastel salad plates.
And adding appetizers to match for the finishing touches.
We had a crepe bar for our main course, thanks to Logan (my son-in-law) for being the best crepe chef around.
For a vignette, I chose to display the gift I was giving mom and baby.
for this lovely momma to be.
Baby Gracee is already truly blessed.

I don’t know about most of you but I have a difficult time purchasing an item which can be worn for only one type of occasion and place. When I first spotted this ‘party’ or ‘formal’ holiday skirt my mind started thinking of how I could possibly make it a practical skirt as well.
This is what I came up with . . .
For a more formal or dressy occasion I wear it with fishnets and high heels . . .
A black pearl collared tee with a velvet jacket.
And on the days when I want to make it practical . . .
I pull on black tights and booties . . .
And pair it with a simple tee and denim jacket.
This is a great way to vouch for a fun purchase.
Do you ever think this way when you spot an item?

As I mentioned last week in my post, which was all about the exquisite grotto style kitchen, today I’m thrilled to show and tell how Oakwood Homes presents their take on dreamy bathrooms.
One of the first rooms I visit when touring a model home is always the master bathroom.
Because to me it’s the room which says, “Relaxation”.
It should be the room to rewind, rejuvenate, and refresh.
I was in dream land as I walked through their bathroom portion of Oakwood Homes showroom.
This model sets the mood for dreamy in my book.
From the counter tops and storage . . .
To the details in the tile work . . .
And take a look at the sink.
And the options of fixtures and faucets.
But what about this walk in shower . . .
Or the car-wash style shower.
Oakwood homes definitely hits the mark on creating ‘dreamy’ style bathrooms.
If your in the market now or in the future for building a new home, drop on over to their showroom, located at 206 E. Winchester Street. You will find a friendly, knowledgable and creative staff ready to help design your dream home.
Thank you, once again, Oakwood Homes, for the opportunity to tour and spend time with you.
