That's the reason why I'm lost. We have been celebrating that my parents in love are visiting us and my hubby birthday. Here is the story:

Celebration #1

Celebration #2

I want to share the progress in our family room make over. It has been harder than I tough because of the wood paneling we have in that room. It takes triple the time than to paint a regular wall. I have to go over the wall one time with the roller and then came back with a paint brush to cover all the irregularities of the wood.

The first step was to put the primer and then I started to add the color to one of the walls. I almost finish with that wall when my hubby come back from work. As soon as he saw it, he said he did not like it. Bummer!!!

So we started looking for other color and we choose a turquoise, called Mermaid Treasure, combined with a blue, called Embellished Blue.

I just finished applying the first coat of the turquoise and is looking beeeaaaauuutiful!

Here are some pictures of the before, sorry they are a little blurry.

And here is the "to do" list for when we finish with the paint.

- look for a color for the furniture
- sand and paint the furniture
- clean everything
- organize furniture
- look for vintage fabric to make curtains and pillows
- print pictures for the frames
- light fixtures
- finish decorating

Well that's all I have for today. Now I'm off to work as you can see the to do list is long.

I want to share this pictures my daughter, Serena, took of herself & by herself. I love, love, love them!!! For me they capture her personality in all its variations. The sweet, the funky, the funny and the pre-adolescent (this is the scary one) She is growing so fast and that is what scary me the most, what the future will bring her way. I hope she conserve that clear, honest and sweet look that I can see in her eyes. I wish for her to have always that big smile of her. I love her and I am really scare because she is not my baby girl anymore.

I love you Serena and I always will not mater what!!!

Now I want to show you a sneak peak of the accessories I am preparing for the 4Th of July. Some will be headbands, hair clips, brooches and pony tails.

And last but not least I am offering free shipping in my shop if you buy two or more items from it. Take advantage of this from today to 6-23-09.

Today is a sad day for the Latin community that likes poetry. Today Mario Benedetti had day. He was considered one of Latin America's most important 20th-century writers. You can fin more information about him here.

I remember in my teens years, I use to read his books all the time and had a journal with all his poems. When I felt sad because of some boyfriend or very happy because I was in love, I always read his poems.

I try my best to translate his poems to English, I hope I did well. But I will post the Spanish version because they have more meaning for me.
I hope you like them...

Tactics and Strategy

My tactic is
look at you
learn how you are
love you as you are.

My tactic is
and listen to you
build with word
an indestructible bridge.

My tactic is
stay in your memory
I do not know how or
what pretext to use
but stay in you.

My tactic is
be frank
and know that you are honest
and we do not sell
so that between the two are
no curtain
or depths.

My strategy is
deeper and more

My strategy is that any day
I do not know how or
with what pretext
you will finally need me.

Táctica y estrategia

Mi táctica es
aprender como sos
quererte como sos.

Mi táctica es
y escucharte
construir con palabras
un puente indestructible.

Mi táctica es
quedarme en tu recuerdo
no sé cómo ni sé
con qué pretexto
pero quedarme en vos.

Mi táctica es
ser franco
y saber que sos franca
y que no nos vendamos
para que entre los dos

no haya telón
ni abismos.

Mi estrategia es
en cambio
más profunda y más

Mi estrategia es
que un día cualquiera
no sé cómo ni sé
con qué pretexto
por fin me necesites.

I love you

Your hands are my caress,
my everyday chords;
I love you because your hands
working for justice.

If I love you is because you are
my love, my partner, and everything.
And on the street side by side
We are more than two.

Your eyes are my spell
against a bad day;
I love you because your eyes
watch and seed future.

Your mouth that is yours and mine,
Your mouth is not wrong;
I love you because your mouth
knows how to yell rebelliousness.

If I love you is because you are
my partner, my love and everything.
And on the street side by side
We are more than two.

And for your honest face .
And your bum step.
And you cry for the world.
Because you are people I love you.

And because love is not aurora,
candid moral,
and because we are partners
who knows that we are not alone.

I want you in my paradise;
I want you in my country
where people live happily
even if there is not permit.

If I love is because you are
my love, my partner and everything.
And on the street side by side
We are more than two.

Te quiero

Tus manos son mi caricia,
mis acordes cotidianos;
te quiero porque tus manos
trabajan por la justicia.

Si te quiero es porque sos
mi amor, mi cómplice, y todo.
Y en la calle codo a codo
somos mucho más que dos.

Tus ojos son mi conjuro
contra la mala jornada;
te quiero por tu mirada
que mira y siembra futuro.

Tu boca que es tuya y mía,
Tu boca no se equivoca;
te quiero por que tu boca
sabe gritar rebeldía.

Si te quiero es porque sos
mi amor mi cómplice y todo.
Y en la calle codo a codo
somos mucho más que dos.

Y por tu rostro sincero.
Y tu paso vagabundo.
Y tu llanto por el mundo.
Porque sos pueblo te quiero.

Y porque amor no es aurora,
ni cándida moraleja,
y porque somos pareja
que sabe que no está sola.

Te quiero en mi paraíso;
es decir, que en mi país
la gente vive feliz
aunque no tenga permiso.

Si te quiero es por que sos
mi amor, mi cómplice y todo.
Y en la calle codo a codo
somos mucho más que dos.

Have a wonderful day!
