A Sunday Peek at my shoes and other faves!

Ladies, I didn't go anywhere and am just sitting here pondering on what to post besides my OODD. These are just some more of my favorite things. These are some of my shoes. This is a Rack that I hang in back of the closet door but brought it out to show off some of my cuties. And some of the ones I wear the most. I am totally not going anywhere today. I am pooped and just watching the Telee. Watching Investigation ID channel. Love it :) What are you up too? Anything special?

 This is a shadow box I found at a Consignment store. Fell in love with the flowers and the soft blue color. The flowers and Stem and leaves are made of paper and are in a box that is more like a picture frame. Meant to sit on a desk. I have it on my shelves. Next to my decor books which you will see next.I collect all of the Rachell Ashwell books as well. I also own loads of cook books but they are in the kitchen. Does that make me a Book Hoarder? I know some of you love books. so tell me what your favorites are and which ones you collect. I have many kinds. My most favorite one is by a writer here in San Antonio. Her name is Sandra Cisneros.

These are really Relaxing books to read. Love decorating my home


  1. Pretty! I love the shoes! You have a really nice collection. I also have books everywhere! I have a huge pile beside my bed, a huge pile in the kitchen, and a large bookshelf full in the living room. I try to sell them once I am finished, but there are a lot that I just can't get rid of. I sometimes go back and re-read books, so I always want to keep the good ones! One of my most favorite books is Merle's Door. Since you are a dog lover, you will enjoy the book. I just finished reading it for a second time and it is wonderful!

  2. I know...I'm the same way. I read cookbooks like they are novels. I study them. And like you I keep going back to my favorites even if I have read them before. I will check out Merle's Door. We have a really quaint book store that sells all kinds of books. And yes, I am a dog lover I'm afraid. :)

  3. Hi Gabby, I am a book lover too and enjoy chick lit books by Sophie Kinsella (she wrote the Confessions of a Shopaholic series). Also love Marian Keyes, Emily Giffin and Jane Aunsten. It's lots of fluff so it's junk food for my mind.
    My all time fav love story is the Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons and I love all of Khaled Hossieni's novels. So I collect books I love and it's a whole hodge podge.
    What's your all time fav book?

  4. My All time favorite book Is Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez who is a Columbian Nobel Prize winning Author. They made a movie based on the book but as always the book is better. I love some many different types of books and I love Poetry as well. By Pablo Neruda, Maya Angelou is probably my favorite and I love one of her Quotes so much that I use one of them in my everyday life. she's states, "When someone shows you who they are, Listen the first time" Her poetry is so beautiful I cannot recall it at this time but there is a poem of hers that just makes me so Happy & sad at the same time. I love her. I am also a big Hodge Podge. I love True crime. My favorite is Ann Rule. I devour her books and once got a chance to go see her but missed it and now I feel like I missed out :( I love and am addicted to Forensic Science. Crime scene Investigation. I love Decorating books by Rachel Ashwell, Cook books by Ina Garten, and I love Nigela Lawson. So see, I am totally not loyal to one person LOL.... I am also a big time lover of museums. Go frequently and see many artists works. I have seen a painting by Diego Rivera that one of our local museums has here. He was married to Frida kahlo. I am totally boring you but that's me. Just a small part.

  5. i am definitely a book collector. i love just looking at all the pretty pictures. :) cute shoes too!!

  6. Hi S :) Thanks! I am just as happy to post clothing but like sharing little bits of my own personal style. I'm glad you stopped by :) And yes, I too love books!
