What I’ve Been Up To And Revealing A Little Secret

I took a little break ….

So I will let you know what I’ve been up to and revealing a little secret.

What have I been up to? …. I traveled to California with my hubby.

He had a conference there and we decided to take a few extra days

to enjoy the beautiful Southern California Coast.

The Dreamy Bedroom Furniture of Eloquence

Eloquence has to be one of my very favorite furniture lines.

Yes, there is a lot of white; however, used in small doses or large,

the furniture gives you a sense of calm and elegance.

Every chair and sofa that I sat on was comfortable. Definitely beauty, function and comfort.

I want to start off this post with one of my favorite things that I saw in the Eloquence showroom.

Dr. Suess was a wise man!

Their Fall showroom/collection is exquisite . . .
