White Elephant Repurposed



For the last several years, every Christmas, my family has done a very simple gift exchange.
This year, my brilliant sisters jokingly suggested doing white elephant gifts instead.
But, being me, I couldn't just leave it at that. . .
Intead, we will be taking items that would typically be white elephants, and turning them into something cool. It's like a family trash to treasure project.
So, to inspire my family on our way, here are a few of my favorite trash to treasure makeovers that I've scoured from the inter-verse.
















Most of these inspirational projects came from the genius readers over at Design*Sponge.
Okay, family. . .
Let's get to work!

"It's an Alaia! An A-What-A?"


I was scanning apartment #34's killer wish list today, when I came across these gorgeous darlings!
They're made by a "totally important designer."
If only they weren't $2,375!
Maybe if I had a super wealthy benefactor who wished to pamper me. hmmm.
If you are said benefactor, click here to purchase.
Overnight shipping please!

The perfect Snuggle?

As I was perusing the Black Friday online sales, I came across what could be the best snuggle ever. Or maybe the saddest thing I've ever seen.
It's called:
The Hug Me Pillow
And It's only $24.97
Amazing, right?

Morgan James | In Concert

Just about two years ago, I was walking down 42nd street with a few friends and a new acquaintance. She was blonde, gorgeous without any makeup, and sweet as can be. We got to talking and decided to do a trade: She would work on new music with me, and I would do a photoshoot for her. . .
Flash forward two years later, and I am just now holding up my end of the bargain.
Since that fated day, I have come to call Morgan James my friend. And since that day, she has rocked the Broadway stage in The Addams Family, and will soon bring down the house in Wonderland the Musical (with a few other fabulous friends!)
2 weeks ago, she debuted her first solo concert at Le Poisson Rouge in NY. In true diva style, she schooled everyone in that room on what it means to be a star.

And of course, here she is live, bringing down the house!

Congrats Morgan on being a total genius!

Melissa Farrar

Last winter, I was in Chicago preparing for the World Premier of Banana Shpeel at the Chicago Theatre. One day, I walked into the green room where I found a new friend. She was the visiting girlfriend of a cast member, but she instantly became my new girl friend. She's from the Seattle area, where my family now lives, and is an exquisite dancer now hoofing in the big city. This last week in New York, after sleeping on her couch, she and I trekked around Hell's Kitchen to capture her girlish gorgeousness.

The Jazz Singer | Laura Hart

Laura Hart is a Jazz Singer.
Laura Hart is from Orange County.
Laura Hart is GORGEOUS!

We met back in the day in Orange County doing a production of Children of Eden at Musical Theater West. . . We were storytellers :)
And this woman is still as beautiful as the day I met here, but now, she is traveling the the world as a seductive and stunning jazz singer.
We met up a few weeks ago in New York City for a quick capture of her beauty-ness!
