La Porte

Day 21:

Living in La Porte, Texas has some perks.  I thought I would share a place we frequent often. One really neat thing about this old town charm is no traffic!  

Today, I had to go down and check in on a job on the bay of La Porte and do some measuring, so, I just could not resist the urge to get some of my favorite food.
The first time we came to this restaurant, it was packed for breakfast.  It is really hard to find places that serve breakfast and this place offers it all day long.  Yesterday, AND today, Gary and I enjoyed their chirizo and eggs burritos.  They come with complimentary chips and dip.  If you really want to ramp up the flavor and splurge on the calories, you have to try one of their home made pralines.  Oh my goodness, fabulous! When dining in, we also love their pancakes.  It is something about their syrup that is over the top.

Here it is... El Ranchero, La Porte.

Had to get out of my bug and snap a shot.  Notice, no traffic on the road.  Nice.

Parked right in front of the door.

I got to do a little "catch up" at home today, cooked dinner tonight and now to do more sketches for my Commercial One class I am currently in at San Jac Central.

Here's a little peak of what that looks like, along with the designer and info.

16 done and 35 to go! Plus designer info.  It will be a great reference notebook when all done.

Not so painful as I have a love for chairs. 

Color Inspiration

Day 20:

Have a favorite outfit??  Did you know an entire room can be inspired from your favorite outfit with it's color combinations, textures and accessories.

How about a black leather sofa with a blue and white rug, a tangerine velvet club chair and a few gold accessories?  Just an example of what attracts you to purchase your favorite pieces for clothing you love best can be the very colors that you would fall in love with for a favorite space.  Notice, the photographer chose some hot pink in the background against the tangerine that makes an interesting combination to these colors.  A small dose of that color, which is unexpected could balance a really cool look and ramp up even more interest.

Just so you know, I think the nails completely ruins this look.  The color could work but I think not so long!

If I were interviewing a client and they said they wanted their space to look interestingly put together, tailored with a little bling, this would be a great inspiration for that space.
