Happy Birthday, Tam!
As planned, today we went to Orlando for a birthday luncheon for our daughter Tammy!As it turned out, we were a very small group today!(lol- well...in numbers, that is!) It was just the 4 of us...Tammy, Terry, Gabbo and Ginga.
Tina didn't feel up to the trip, and , of course, Alli wanted to stay with her mom.
Tammy's son (my grandson, Zach,) was in a job training session today so he couldn't be there either.
Terry did the food and as always everything was delicious!
And the house was spruced up and looking very cool- as always- with scented candles burning all over- which I love! Tam is a designer and has some really unusual ideas in decorating. I always am amazed at how she selects her home decor accessories and ties them all together in such interesting ways! Anything old or unique catches her eye and she finds ways to use it!
~~This is where Tammy works as head designer and part owner of the co.~~
...To spotlight a few things...
~Dried flowers, hung upside-down, make an interesting valance for the kitchen window! I love this and have started doing it at my house, too! :)
~ A shelf made from flea market finds- left as-is with original flaking paint!
~Bleached animal skulls (Pig-or goat) found at our farm- ( clorox and sun bleached) She likes the forms and lines of these things! ( She's a very artsy type girl!)
~A table made from an old iron stove base-and the top of broken glass pieces! (made by Tam and Terry)
Oh! And the fruit bowl is a gourd bowl~by Ginga.
~ And a few other art objects around Tam's house~~
The house they have is a small bungalow type (OLD- 1930's maybe-I am not sure) Terry redid the hardwood floors and recently re- tiled the kitchen. It has an old fashioned front porch which is very nice to use in cooler weather! They love this house and it is just right for them and Zach!
Oh! And Mittens! :)
This is Mittens~ a sleepy ball of black & white fur here!
OOOPS! I think I made him mad at me!
What a handsome boy he is!!
