the diamond that started it all

the diamond that started it all


welcome to my mission is to give you a glimps of my life as a mother, wife, decorator, painter, and active woman. my inspiration comes from traveling, my education, and my family and friends. i have to admit upfront, however, that my "education" does not include a background in english, so please be patient with my grammar and spelling. i am, however, happy to share on this blog what i learn in my daily life from painting and decorating. here you will also find a real account of my struggles, my experiences, and my many reasons to rejoice. april, or the month of the diamond, is when my first and only daughter, mollie, was born. she is the reason i am a joyful mother, wife, and person today. i appreciate your time, and thank you in advance for your advice. perhaps one day you will be reading from my website but for now this homemade blog will do:-)
love, laura

just thought i would share a list of my go-to websites during this wild ride.  i don't know what i would do without these resources and it helps to have this list for personal reasons right here on my blog:-)

a wonderful outlet for paint color dilemmas

such a cute girl with great ideas.  very casual style like mine.

love these lighting ideas for out screen porch, kitchen, and casual lighting inside
but for more modern lighting, i ordered from
and for reasonably priced elegant lighting i used in NOLA

great site when i need to show a visual to my contractors!

for everything in our bath

for pretty tile

for solid surface counter tops...ask for remnants!
BJ's Ceramic Tile (couldn't locate a web address)

for hardware i love getting ideas from restoration hardware  and then matching them at lowes or ridgeland specialty hardware for better prices

cool outdoor gardening stuff
