I love pretty trellises and they can be used as a frame to create unique outdoor spaces. You can buy trellises from home improvement stores for example Lowes, Home Depot, etc. A couple of floral vines used for growing on trellises are: wisteria, clematis, trumpet vine, riverbank grape and morning glory. Below are some ideas on how to use trellises.

Place a trellis in an area where you grow flowers as a unique feature...

Frame a large outdoor area using tall trellises as outdoor walls and decorate with floral accents and center pieces...

Substitute a hammock or outdoor seating for a seated trellis...

Use a trellis as an entry way into a garden or another outdoor area...

A trellis can provide additional landscaping within a garden...

Create an outdoor seating area framed by floral trellises...

Another entry way trellis...

A trellis can also be used as a walkway...

 ...or can even be used to frame windows!

Chanel's fall/winter collection for 2012-13!

Chanel's fall/winter collection for 2012-13 consisted of crystals which were the inspirational theme that inspired the collection of ready-to-wear layered looks. The details to the layered looks were even more stunning and featured feathers, glittering accents and jeweled tones like ruby, sapphire and gold. Another stunning detail was found in the heels of the shoes which were made of lucite. Last but not least, the face was not to be missed as models sported crystal beaded strips in place of eyebrows.

April Showers...

We suffered a very dry winter here so the rain we had today was a welcome relief. Our meterologist said this will be our last rainy day of the season. I enjoyed it! Also,while it's still spring we should take time to stop and smell the flowers.

Easter Parade Movie

Note: image from imdb.com

One of my all time favorites during Easter is this movie called the Easter Parade which is perfect for all ages. If you like musicals and fashion then this movie is a must.

These styles are so cute and versatile and can be worn on the beach, in a casual setting and for evening wear. Now, if I could only figure out how they did it!
