Yearly Fashionable Home Tour...

Every year to celebrate Mother's Day... my Mother and I visit the Pasadena Showcase House... this is the home we toured this year... the Showcase House runs until May 17th...Here are three rooms I would like to lounge in... The Master Sitting Room designed by Saxony Street Design Group...
The Sun Room designed by Mark Cutler Design, Inc...And of course... I would love to lounge by the pool designed by Arcadia Pool Construction and Design...How about these fashions via Wall Street Journal-WSJ magazine for poolside...




After lounging by the pool (touring the home) we ALWAYS go out to lunch to a lovely restaurant... this year we went to Caffe Opera for YUMMY food and a PINK Cosmo was pour for moi...
from their Martini Bar with pale PINK drapery...Our Mother's Day special event was FAB... I hope everyone else has a LOVELY Mother's Day!

For MORE Friday FUN... VISIT Melissa’s Beautiful Life and be sure to visit all the PINK participants on Saturday at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound!!!

Bonjour Fifi and Bonne Fete a Mamman! Hope you enjoy it as well.
Your entries are all so sunny and warm. The house is GORGOEUS!
Now why don't they sell houses like this, all decorated and furnished, in real life. It's like living in a hotel. (sigh)
Enjoy your family and leave painting for another day.It won't run away :)

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

We do the same thing! Except thuis year we had to postpone until next weekend...it's a 22 room tudor-style home in Rumson, NJ. I am sure once I go through it I will want to go home and clean and organize and upgrade. That's what typically happens. :-)

And I LOVE the portrait you did for Julia. And what a great giveaway idea...it's a match made in blogland!
