Introducing....DIFY {Do It For You!}

Bloomers! I know it's been a while. That's because we have been busy doing a few other things, in addition to Joelle and Shayna raising babies: The creators of inBloom have opened a company specializing in furniture re-design and home staging!   So, you can get your fill of more yummy stuff.  Check out our new website: www.difydesign.com.   You can find all the yummy furniture that we've fixed up so far, so that you no longer have to find mass-produced furniture that needs to be screwed together every month.  Tell us what you think of our line so far!  We can do custom pieces as well, and we are also offering Home Staging (though, no hoarder houses please). 

You can now follow our musings on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Phew that's a lot of a lot. I do hope you all enjoy.

nerdy science party - finally!

 Happy Terbium Day to Dad Bloomer!!! 

 Test Tube timbit cake pops!!  A huge hit with the kidders.

 
 Nerd glasses, nerd watches and t-shirt lab coats for the kidders too.


 Stain on the table cloth :)  Definitely deliberate :P

 
 The whole set up again! An Apple iPad for his gifty...

 I think I would trust Dr. Sage Bloomer!

De-Contamination Zone



 Still can't get over Dr. Sage!!!!

 Noameo REFUSES to put his glasses or labcoat on...REFUSES!!!

 ...but luckily he LOVED running through the De-contamination Zone


...another cute lil nerdy doctor!!

 Dr. Thomas looks a little uncertain!!

 ...and here he is in all all his sciencey nerdy glory!!  Happy "Terbium" Day, Dad Bloomer!


Well, we've wanted to do it for AGES, and never had the right moment. Until our father, Dad Bloomer, had a milestone birthday!  And in honour of his pursuit of science over the last 40 years (to which he has contributed significantly, might I add), we threw him a teeny weeny little nerdy science birthday, including nerd costumes for the kidders (oh and maybe the adults too...) and test tube cake pops!! 'Twas great fun if I do say so myself - especially seeing the kids in their super nerd outfits, even if they only kept them on for 2 minutes!

Finley - The Littlest Bloomer!

 The new generation of Bloomers... Here's Joelle Bloomer with her babies, Sage and brand new baby sister Finley.

 Beautiful serene Finley.

 Someone's having a good dream!!


I'm so proud to announce that I'm an Aunty again!  Joelle Bloomer and Petey had a new little creation, Finley Violet. She is GORGEOUS! Just like her older sister, Sage.  Sigh.  This little one makes my world go 'round yet again.  She's so beautiful. Thought I'd share my latest inspiration :)   {photography by Joelle Segal @ www.inbloomstudio.com}

Kauai, Hawaii - My Top 10 Inspiring Moments

I swear this is NOT a travel blog! I just went on a few trips over the last few months. I won't draw this one out, I'll just show you my fav spots of Kauai, Hawaii from my trip a few weeks ago. Then back to decor, promise!

1. I took a helicopter ride over the Napali Coast...it was MESMERIZING. Seriously, the landscape, the mountains, the beaches, the blue water - definitely the highlight of my trip.

2. Again, look how cool it looks from above! I just want to lick it, it's so yummy. I was in a helicopter so some of the shots are a bit distorted.



3. There were so many cool waterfalls, but thought I'd show you the Jurassic Park falls! Again, a bit wonky because I was in a helicopter, but it does sort of give it a neat Jurassic Parky creepy effect.


4. Was a bit obsessed with the Hanaeli Pier too. Something spiritual and humbling about it. I think this is the town where George Clooney lived in the movie, The Descendants.


5. Waimea Canyon from the helicopter (I felt a bit motion sick in there, but I still really loved it! And no, I didn't puke)

6. Ke'e Beach, the most northern beach in Kauai, just where the long hiking trail into the mountains begins. It was very beautiful here...it looked just like Lost! I could feel this crazy sort of energy in Hawaii. It also peeks around to the Napali Coast: I could look at the coastline forever.

7. The surf was so turquoise, it was unbelievable! I put a lei in the ocean for my mother because the "seafoam" reminded me of my late Mom Bloomer. I put one in the ocean for my friend's friend, who passed away in Hawaii, too.
8. Grassy mountain in Limahuli Gardens, which preserved the old Hawaiian agricultural land from the early 1800s, and also displayed some native plants/trees, but also non-native trees from the age of Polynesian explorer, Captain Cook (I'm a nerd). Apparently it is like a miniature Machu Picchu!

9. In Poipu Beach, right beside the Spouting Horn (which thoroughly perplexed me). Every time I said Poipu, I thought of the word "pupik" which is Yiddish for belly button, hee.

10. Just loved the landscape...the farmland with horses on it, the trees, and then jungle-y mountains. This was taken in Poipu.

san fran inspiration ... japanese garden




This Japanese Tea Garden in the Golden Gate Park was sublime. Just perfect. Love the round "Dr. Seuss" trees as my cousin calls them. The bridge is entirely made of wood too if you can believe it...

more san fran inspiration...redwoods!


How beautiful are redwood trees? So so so tall, it's breathtaking. And they smell good too. I got to see a ton of them in Muir Woods, after crossing the Golden Gate bridge.


And look what I found when I biked around Angel Island?! A beautiful little friendly deer. We stared at eachother for a while.

leaving on a jet plane



Going on a soul searchin' journey to Kauai, Hawaii for 2 weeks, Bloomers. This Bloomer's soul needs a serious rest! But then I realized I got so carried away with my house sale pictures, that I forgot to post the rest of my inspirations from San Francisco way back in October...my first soul searching trip in a series. Ok, I wanna show you! I'll post for the next few days, and then then maybe I'll have some inspiration from Kauai when I get back! These paper flowers I saw in a window of a jewellery store in San Fran - so pretty. Reminded me of Lynn Bloomer and all the paper flowers she made for Amy's cool funky wedding.

Michelle Williams, new muse

I liked the lace around her neckline - so delicate:







whoever styled her for the Oscars is amazing...i love her red lipstick...never would have paired it with the yellow but it just works!



Loved her pixed hair cut and make up here too...good styling!



Seems somewhat out of character for her, with such a low cut dress, but I do like it.


Casual wear...I like this style!



How did Michelle Williams get to be such a style icon? She was a bit frumpy dumpy in her Dawson Creek days, remember? Then, I saw a picture of her at the SAG Awards the other day and realized how much I like her dress and her pixie cut. And then I realized that I generally like everything she wears to red carpet events. And even her casual wear. She has such a neat, fitted vintage style. What do you think?
