Tuscan Style Decorating

Tuscany Italian Hall Table
Tuscan Style Decorating is one of my favorite looks in a home of all time. I simply love the colors of the warm and rich earth tones, the golden yellows, wine colored reds and the accents of the olive greens. But it goes way beyond the colors. There are lots of texture in a Tuscan style of decorating from the terra cotta tiles on the floors to the textured walls, they all play a part in this warm and inviting look.

The Tuscan accents will add even more interest completing the design. This is one style of decorating that I will never grow tired of no matter how many times I see a Tuscan style home.

Bruder Toy Trucks


I have found the perfect toy truck, Bruder Toy Trucks. They are the most realistic, well designed toys you can find anywhere. For little boys, and big ones too, that love playing with trucks, these are the ultimate toy.

They are huge! And did I say that the Bruder Toy Trucks are so life like that you would think they were real. They look as if you should be able to crawl right in and drive around in one.

Built in Germany, the Bruder Toy Trucks have that high standard of quality that will insure they will last for years. And the attention to detail is superb.

If you have a young boy in your life, you have to get him a Bruder Toy Truck.

Jessica Simpson Boulevard Hobo Handbag

Designer Inspired Handbags



This is perhaps the cutest hobo you might ever come across, and one of the largest ones too. The Jessica Simpson Boulevard Hobo takes the usual hobo bag and glams it up with soft shiny leatherette with small gold toned studs that match the rest of the hardware, including the zippered top closure that brings the bag together at the top. The signature tag that shows this is a Jessica Simpson original is on the bottom of the bag. The closure opens up to reveal the signature Jessica Simpson gingham lining.
Take a look at this fabulos Jessica Simpson Boulevard Hobo Handbag today.

Designing With Kitchen Track Lighting

Designing With Kitchen Track Lighting

Have you ever walked into a kitchen where the lighting was so bad you could hardly see clearly enough to prepare a meal? If this sounds like yours then maybe you should consider kitchen track lighting.

Your kitchen should have a well designed lighting system giving each work area a light of its own. Kitchen track lighting can provide this function with the flexible design and lights that you can aim to provide light to an exact area.

Depending on the layout of the workspace, many times you can provide the necessary light for two or three work areas with a single kitchen track lighting system.

While some kitchen track lighting systems are flexible and can be formed, others are fixed and must be positioned in a very specific spot to provide the working surface with the proper light. An example of this is the pendant lighting where each pendent will hang in a very specific location.

The more diverse your kitchen track lighting is, the more options you will have in the design aspect of your kitchen. There are many styles such as contemporary, classic, and antique that you can choose to make your kitchen special and inviting to guests.

How do you know if you are choosing the right kitchen track lighting? First and foremost, it should be of a design that you like. With the kitchen being one of the most used rooms in a home, you would not want to install just any lighting system.

Next would be the flexibility and design of your new kitchen track lighting. Is it easy to install? Does it blend, stand out or conflict with you d├ęcor? When you can answer these simple questions then you will know that the kitchen track lighting you choose is right for you.

This is just one of many design ideas that will help you improve not only the functionality of your kitchen, but will give it a fresh and exciting new feel. Updating is easy with kitchen track lighting.

Decorate With Daybed Sets

Daybed sets take the guesswork out of decorating. With everything you need in one simple package, it is possible to transform a room in minutes.

Versatility is the key of the daybed and to get the most out of it, you really need daybed bedding that can go the distance. Good linens can withstand whatever you dish out, from an endless string of out of town guests to kids who use the daybed as a couch or lounge chair.

Although daybeds are a space-saver compared to full-size beds, the daybed is not an especially small piece of furniture. Put the wrong bedding on it and it can stick out like a sore thumb. So choose carefully and make sure the placement is right for your room.

The perfect choice for you just may be a new daybed set.

Get a new outfit, you have to have a new handbag to match. Though trends come and go, it seems that many of the trendy handbags stick around for years and never go out of style. Especially the designer inspired handbags.

In that respect I would have to say that investing in the latest trendy handbags is a good investment. You can spend any amount you want on them but if you look hard you can find some great bargins.

Here is one really good buy on a designer inspired handbag. The Hudson Satchel is very similar to our Hudson tote because it has a great selection of duel colors to choose from in the bags: brown and gold, grey with black, black and grey, blue and black and of course red and black. Each bag is made from the highest quality synthetic leather with beautiful matching gold tone hardware

Discount Comforter Sets

Discount comforter sets are not always such a bargin.

If you are not careful you can get some of lesser quality. On the other hand, many discount comforter sets are those which are either discontinued or may have slight flaws that most people will never find.

These are the discount comforter sets you need to look for if you want a real bargin. Though considered a good deal, these are not the only ones out there. Some designers and manufacturers will make over runs in order for large discount outlets to purchase them and sell at a reduced price.

Either way, there are some really good buys and if you look hard enouth (sometimes it is even easy) you can find some really good discount comforter sets.

Take a look at the ones at Potpourri Emporium.
