weekend haps

My good friend Jeannie invited me to the Pasadena Heritage Spring Home Tour this weekend & it was fabulous! The tour featured homes by the modern architects, Buff & Hensman.

Our favorites were the Bea House, built in 1957 by Buff, Straub and Hensman (above) and the Thompson/Moseley House built in 1959 by Buff, Straub and Hensman (below).

Thank you Jeannie!

I also spent the weekend finishing up a calligraphy project for a destination wedding in Cabo. The font was Hallmark Script and the envelopes were long and rectangular, which gave me so much space!

We're in the process of putting our condo on the market and the pre-MLS marketing sign went up yesterday, which was kind of sad. If it sells, I will really miss our little place, but I'm also excited for the next chapter.

Aren't we all...

un prophete

We saw Un Prophete last weekend and it was quite good.  Malik, the complex main character, along with other criminal-types, keep you engaged as the plot unravels in typical French fashion, brilliantly and without any rush.

bright light


Like a bird in a bird cage with the door swinging open. How I would love to sit in this chair & read a book.

you really shouldn't have

Dear Endless,
One fantastic new pair this week would have been enough, but now you go and send me these. How you spoil me so! They are quite spectacular, comfortable, and the faux python print is just the ticket for spring.

Your friend forever,
Dianna

P.S. They're vegan too!

party shoes


Look what arrived on my doorstep today! They are totally faboo!
The downside, not the most comfortable or well-made shoe, but how often are you going to wear a glitter shoe anyway, really? They are perfection at $39.95 (um, hello).
I'm thinking of ringing in birthday no. 31 in these beauts.

happy

My good friend AR recently rescued pretty Sadie-Blue from the tough streets of skid row. As you can see, she's loving her new life!
These photos were taken by a professional photographer who selected her for a dog food ad. Can you say Super Model?! Such a happy pup.

Save a life & adopt from a shelter or rescue!
Or, do what AR did & rescue a homeless animal directly off the street & provide a loving & happy home.

Two paws up AR!
