Frosty Weather

 I thought these window displays at Gather (next to ACM) were perfect to share considering the icy weather we are having in Texas this weekend.

Metallic gold and white glitter with the Season!

A little touch of mischief.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall


One of my favorite new products in my
Ella Elaine Collection is this arched mirror.
The shape of the mirror is based from an old window I had seen.
This display is hanging in the front window at the Antique Company Mall.

I found pieces of old wallpaper, sheet music and of course a few birdies to use as the background art.

You can see the details better in this catalog photo.
The yellow flower pattern at the top was
from some old wallpaper that my mother had back in the 1970's. 

 At my home, I placed the mirror at the turn in the staircase.
 It welcomes everyone as they enter and as they walk up the stairs.

Today, I Choose JOY

You can choose to live your life with the JOY of the front row or solemnness of the third row.
What a HUGE difference.
 
I find myself on each of the three rows at different times and seasons of my life.
 All serving their purpose and learning from each experience..
 I am my happiest when I dare to sit on the
front row...

My friends, go share the JOY!

The Colors of Chile

Mr. Ella and I returned last week from a Mission trip to Chile. While we were there our group was able to take a couple of days off from working in Santiago and travel about an hour to the coast.

In Valparaiso we rode an old box type elevator up the hill and was surprised to see this turquoise Victorian house perched on the edge.

The "box" to the left is what we rode in...
It is one of those things you do and just try not to think about how dangerous it is...

The houses were painted in such fun colors.



Each is their own unique color.

Paint store owners are staying busy in Chile!
(The blue basket in front is where they put their trash to picked up.)

Signs of Summer inside ACM




Summer is easy to spot when you are at the Antique Company Mall.
Can you feel the gentle breeze through the screen doors?
 
Hear the game on the radio?
 

Taste the cold lemonade?

Or bottled grape juice?

Your mind can escape inside ACM in the cool A/C!

Go For it Friday

 
My favorite quote by Goethe torn out of a Mary Engelbreit  magazine many
years ago.
 
"Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
 
Take that first step!

Ella Elaine Summer Collection 2013

 
I am excited to announce that my Summer Collection will debut next week at the

This lamp is one of my favorites.
The design is from a beautiful old wallpaper printer roller.
I think it turned out gorgeous and I can't wait to have a pair in my own home.

The mirror with the birds is also one of my favorites.
The sheet music flowers are fun and
look like paper but are actually made out of metal.

I really enjoy designing for IMAX.
 New products are currently being sold wholesale only to the trade.
 Contact IMAX if interested.
 I love giving new meaning and purpose to the found objects that I have gathered over the years.

My beautiful daughter, Leah.
