blogger spotlight - along came splendor













Today, the spotlight is on me. But who knows...tomorrow it could be you. Oh come on, it's fun! Email me at jenvitucci@gmail.com if you're craving some time in the spotlight!















name: jenny  blog: along came splendor hometown: dallas, tx room-mates: my husband, carmen, and our son, max. oh and dolly, our dog that we sometimes forget we have 



most treasured treasure: my mom’s old record collection of classic rock, folk and old soul from the 60’s, 70’s & 80’s. she gave me everything but the barry manilow records 

favorite tv mom: was lucille ball a mom? not that she's my favorite but i seem to get myself into the same ridiculous situations she always found herself in 

spot for a steal: estate sales and online designer discount daily deals 

window-shop: barney's or calypso 

dreaming of: a tropical vacation 














my “it” design color of the moment: yellow or kelly green 

current state of mind: creative, which leads to grateful, as well 

favorite quote: ”save the drama for your mama” but of course, i rarely do.





drink of choice
: iced tea for a non-alcoholic beverage and a glass of sauvignon blanc for something with a kick 

my ideal evening: a night in with my husband and son - laughing, being silly and enjoying a good meal. for a night out - a good meal and good company 

1 thing few people know about me: i’d say that i sucked my thumb well into elementary school but that’s just embarrassing. so...let’s go with...i was in a lifetime movie. also embarrassing, I guess 

recipe for relaxation: sitting on my back porch under the lantern tree-lights after max goes to bed with a glass of wine, either talking to God, a beloved friend or listening to music on my iphone. peaceful. 







coffee table book:
 anything by kelly wearstler








biggest source of inspiration: creative women with enough confidence to put themselves out there - be it thoughts, words or their own creations. i get so inspired reading other blogs. always amazed at how talented you women are! 

5 words that describe me: optimistic, forgetful, silly, playful, devoted, loving, fun...that’s more than 5 

favorite design blog: oh, i can’t even list them all! definitely the must-reads I’ve put on my blog. plus about 50 others. add indecisive to the question above 

most marked characteristic: expressive. and maybe dramatic. but not in a crazy, flip-out kind of way like when kelly kapowski took too many caffeine pills 

what i hope to pass onto my children: a joyous love and longing for Christ, and after that, confidence in who God made them to be 

nicknames for kids: we call max all sort of things - buddy roe, puddin, little man, silly goose

on my nails: pale yellow 

beside my bed: my Bible and journal 

in the fridge: berries, apples, nectarines, mango, oranges, veggies, CHEESE, hebrew national hot dogs, ground coffee, flavored creamer, pickles 

on my play list: my morning jacket, michael jackson, neil young, bob dylan, U2, black keys, stevie nicks, mumford & sons, kol, al green, billy joel, talking heads, neil diamond, otis redding, vampire weekend, willy nelson 

in my handbag: make-up, iphone, wallet, lip balm, deodorant (it’s hot out) and a notepad/pen to jot down ideas 

on my to-do list: blog!

  3. Jess and Jennifer - forgive me for such a late reply! Strep invaded our home last week and we're just now getting life back to normal.
    Jennifer...yes and I love it! I'll admit - I had to get up a little confidence to go with such a bold color on my nails...usually I stick with neutrals but this has been fun for summer. BTW, we've got to schedule a coffee!
    Jess - I changed the format a little bit but before I had a collage made on polyvore.com and I formatted the rest with pages, an apple app. It's been so fun to learn a little graphic design as I go!
