Welcome to My World

So here we go with the first post in my blog. Never done this before so for the one person out there that may be reading this, be patient. I don't know that there will be a any kind of rhyme or reason to this blog, just a place to post what I've been up to. So with that said, lets get started. :)

*Who are ya?
Well, my name is Tonya, I am 39 yrs., I live here in Texas with my hubby, 2 teenage daughters, 2 dogs, 2 pups, and 1 snake. I am a designer and maker of clothing, jewelry, beads, paper crafts, etc. I am a 50's housewife/40's glam gal at heart; I love all things from these era's. This will definitely show in my home once I've finished decorating. I try to use/re purpose vintage items as much as possible. They are so beautiful and carry so much history with them, I can't just let them go to waste. :)

*What'cha doin'?
Okay so, our house


was finished being built in June 2007 and we moved in; here we are 8 mths later, and I am just now starting with the decorating. I am usually the type that has to have it all planned out before I start anything. Well, that was getting me nowhere. So I decided to just jump on in and and let it come to me as I go. Ya know what, that actually works. I am just about finished with the 1/2 bath downstairs and have started on the master bedroom now. As I get them done, I will post before and after pics. Then yesterday, I decided to rearrange my entire kitchen. I put all the dishes and pots & pans and such in the pantry, and moved all the food to the cabinets. It feels so much more efficient that way. And ya know, who cares if that's not how its supposed to be, I'm the only vote that matters right? ;) Now the finishing touch I need for my kitchen is my dream machine Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer in Red (or pink would be nice too). :) We'll see what happens..


  1. I love my KitchenAid --- it's 20 yrs old now in royal blue but now I really want a red or pink one, too.

  2. WOW.. 20 years.. So I guess it is safe to say they are well worth the money. :)

  3. You have got a beautiful house. I am looking forward to renovating mine in May.

  4. Thank you so much precious.
    ohh you are gonna have soooo much fun! :)
