Rope It In........


Rope or line as it is called in the "boat world" is not one of those items we typically think as an item to decorate with. Well think again! I have come up with several nautical and seaside styles that will have you roped in!


Purchase Manila Rope at your local Home Depot or Lowes. Make sure you get enough and wrap in a large clear bowl or try some of these nautical ideas shown below.

Reminds me of an old japanese float. Not impossible to do yourself but a bit difficult so buy it instead.

Add rope around a mirror~

or how about around the edge of a side table?


Easy to make with an online video (no kidding!) this nautical monkey fist doorstop will show your seaside style!

Seaside Paint Colors you will LOVE~



Lately I have been on this kick about painted furniture. Not just any colors but coastal blues and greens. To my delight I found some fascinating hues from Sherwin Williams. Their Coastal Cool Collection reminds me of Beach Glass. The colors of these tumbled treasures evoke the seaside style I am looking for. Colors like, Watery and Sea Salt already have my mind swimming with ideas. Whether you are painting walls or furniture or just looking for color inspiration, these colors will take you directly to your seaside oasis.

Only in So Cal ~

Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas
“Only in Southern California” as I jokingly replied to my sister in law when we strolled in to watch MIB 3 into CinĂ©polis our new local Luxury Cinemas, a few weeks ago. Upon entering, we were immediately dazzled by plush seating in the bar and lounge areas. Want Sushi? They have it. How about taking a seat in the Theatre and being served by a waiter or waitress just by the touch of a button? The menus offer a wide variety of food, beverage, gourmet foods, and desserts not to mention the usual theater faire. How about being pampered while watching the movie in an electric plush reclining leather seat and oh did I mention they have a foot rest too. This luxury movie theater also allows you to buy and pick your seats online. If you like you can watch the trailers of the movies they are playing on the self-serve touch screen to if you are not sure what you want to see.

 Finally, enjoy the show, projected with state of the art digital sound and projection equipment, including many titles offered in 3D for the whole family. Yours for only $23 a ticket. Oh I know…..am I crazy? Well we were that night. The movie was great the service was exceptional and the reclining seats were to die for. But only that one time we said. Relatives were visiting. My nephew thoroughly enjoyed the “Only in California experience”. Only this once. Our one big movie splurge for the year.

So Spiderman just came out the other day……….
