Which would you choose and a special offer!

Good afternoon, hope you are having a good week. So sorry about the post that got sent this morning and sent everyone into a tailspin over it being in Latin…did you think I was trying to give you a lesson in a romance language, lol?

The puff on powder rooms

Hello! Thank you for the amazing feedback on the flatware, it was an overwhelming and super positive response. For those who asked when I will hold the presale it will be sometime next week. You will be able to lock in a “pre- presale” price which will be a bargain, so stay tuned!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a good start. Here the weather has been incredible, we got to 64 degrees yesterday…I will take it!Had a good weekend, well rested for a full schedule this week.

Everyone loves and should have a killer powder room. It is one room nearly all your guests will see and to me, a powder room should feel like a small jewel box, wrapped in beauty and a yummy scent. I always burn a candle or have a diffuser to envelop them in something wonderful as they walk in. I also am a fan of wallpaper in a powder room as its a small space where you can easily make a statement.

Working on a new edesign project with someone and working on their powder room, so have been gathering lots of great ideas and examples to show her. Thought you might enjoy taking a look as well just in case you are looking for some ideas of your own. Here we go…

I am all about going for the glam factor, and this beautiful powder room delivers!! The gold chinoiserie just says it all, Jones Byrne Margeotes Partners

Love the way Courtney Blanton created panels to place the wallpaper in, a great look!

Even in small tight spaces, you can make a powder room feel quite luxurious, HAR

The moodiness and drama of a black powder room is undeniably chic, Ashley Goforth

Always been a fan of using a Venetian mirror in a powder room, it adds so much elegance and definitely ups the glam factor, this vision in pink is a stunner. Amy Studebaker

I absolutely love this idea!!! A wall filled with photos on paper, how brilliant!! John Hummel

Such a classically beautiful powder room that will be as gorgeous 20 years from now, Rariden Schumacher Mio and Co

This is a great example of a well done more casual powder room without giving up an ounce of beauty, Morrissey Saypool Interios

This is beautiful, love the bleached/lime wood vanity, and mix of cool and warm, stunning! Instagram

This is such a pretty and fresh feeling powder room, love adding small unique pieces to a powder room such as this small piece of furniture to hold towels, etc… Ashley Whittaker

You know I am loving this for that fabulous wallpaper and take a closer look at the blue and white sink…fabulous!! Tres McKinney

The gold accents add a lot of glam to this elegant and warm powder room, Bradford

An iconic wallpaper like Thibaut’s Tanzania wallpaper can make a huge statement even in small spaces, love this! Amie Corley

Adore everything about this, the softness, the understated elegance, the unique vanity, Robin Gannon

For a less formal powder room, the use of beadboard is a lovely and not terribly expensive detail, this is a good looking powder room. Burns and Bayer

What a beautiful console! I have always liked the look of an elegant console sink or antique vanity for a powder room, just adds so much elegance, Suzanne Kasler

Isn’t this such a warm and inviting space? Elegant, tonal powder room by Tres McKinney

A perfect example of how much impact wallpaper can have even in a small room, Ashley Whittaker

So many beauties…gives me some great ideas for PB. I have all kinds of ideas swimming trough my head. Have a fave here? What are your thoughts on using wallpaper in a powder room? Have any tried and true tips to make your powder room extra special?

I think this is one room to really step it up, make your guest feel like they walked into s small aromatic jewel box. I love wallpaper, marble, gorgeous sconces, beautiful hardware and the finishing touches are always a budvase of flowers, a candle or diffuser and beautifully scented soaps…..

OK your turn to weigh in your favorite looks for a powder room. Thank you for stopping in, wishing you a wonderful day! Until next time…..

Seven on Sunday

Hi friends and Happy Sunday. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  We had a fun dinner out on Friday, yesterday went to see Sally Field in The Glass Menagerie on Broadway (depressing storyline but really well acted) and went to a  lovely small dinner party last night. I love going to restaurants, but to me nothing beats having dinner in someones home, it is so much more intimate, yet its done less and less.

Today going to relax a while then later hopefully going into the city to visit my oldest son after all its going to be 60 degrees today….makes you want to come out of hibernation! Here we go with this Sundays happenings….

 

1 EXCITING NEW VENTURE. So behind the scenes, I have some super duper exciting things happening, a few I cannot tell you about quite yet but this one I can because its officially in production! Over the moon with this flatware that I have in the works, expect to have it in April!! I will be offering a “pre-presale” on it very soon.

It will be a win/win- you will get it at the lowest price and I will be able to gauge/tweak the quantities once I see the level of interest. If the feedback I got via Instagram is any indication then I would have to say it will be incredibly well received. Me?I  want a full set of each and already envisioning how I will set the table. So here they are-

Here is a closer look at the patterns- (there will be a five piece place setting for each design, not all pieces shown and possibly some matching serving spoons/forks)

BAMBOO

PAGODA

EQUESTRIAN

And if you don’t mind participating in a mini poll, your feedback is so valuable.

 


2. THE ARK AT JFK. One of our friends was actually one of the founders of this amazing concept, exciting to see it become a reality and to rave reviews. A major pet hotel/animal terminal at JKF. This was sorely needed!!! When we picked up little Teddy when he was only 8 weeks old from JFK after having been flown in from Arizona, the conditions were at best that of a third world country…it was disgusting and shocking.

This will certainly make many many pet owners the world over thrilled to know their pets are being taken care of in a world class facility. It is really a brilliant concept and I have a feeling one that will be done in many other major airports in then near future. Click here to learn more about it.

3. INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST. Love my roundup this week, there is lots to love and be inspired by. Instagram is such a wonderful resource to get ideas of every kind, never ceases to amaze!

No this is not Disney, it’s a CAKE!!!!!

My fave this week is this stunning picture, posted by a customer who loves her new ginger jars from my shop!

 

4.HIGH IN THE SKY! Just in case you have a cool 39 million to spare, you can buy this sprawling 4900 sq foot Astor Suite which is up for sale in the Plaza Hotel.  Considered to be one of the most historic apartments ever for sale boasting such former residents as John Jacob Astor, Duke and Duchess of Windsor and JFK, you simply can’t put a price on that.  Take a look-

And here’s a video to see the whole enchilada-

 

5.AMAZING LITTLE DANCERS. I love videos of talented kids..can’t you tell:) These pint sized dancers are incredible and with such sass!!! At 7 I was playing with barbies and looking for my next play date! Very entertaining, both super talented but that little boy is really something.

And just in case you missed this one, I had to share it again, one of my favorite songs sung by two insanely talented kids. I could listen to this all day long, one of my faves-

 

6.CHINA BY MOTTAHEDEH OBSESSION. I LOVE china, I have closets of it and way too much for one person, yet I cannot help myself!! Lately I am obsessing over completing my set of Mottaheheh. Have quite a few pieces but not a complete set of any. I love how you can mix and match many of their blue and white patterns. But I will say to my defense, I really use them, all the time. Click here to visit Mottahedeh. Here are a few favorites-

This is the one I am thinking of adding onto, the dragon plates work so well with many other patterns and are really striking

And in other colors they are equally spectacular-

 

7. SUNDAY’S SURVEY. OK……onto something I have thought many times and curious what you all think. When I am in one of my cooking moods, I always turn on the Food Network to really get me inspired. I am kind of stunned and entertained by the increasingly number of shows featuring these tiny little chefs, they are often as young as 7 or 8!

When they get “cut” it is hard to see their crestfallen little faces, not to mention what does an 8 year old REALLY know about reductions and dry roasting!!  And I think this is just an example of how our society in general is giving things to kids way way too young. You see 2 year olds walking around with their own ipad, 6 year olds with phones and now they have their cooking show. Are they really ready for that and what will there be left in life to want and work for by the time they are 18? On one hand love that it fosters a passion that is no doubt taking our country by storm- food, cooking and chefs has never attained the celebrity status it has now.

But seeing these little tiny people cooking away as though they are experts somehow doesn’t seen natural. When I was little if I wanted to be a cook, I would have had to practice in out kitchen at home with my moms pots and pans, making macaroni and cheese and maybe working my way up to a bunt  cake:) while attaining the goal of being a professional cook one day AS AN ADULT. What’s next,  their own news channel, and lifestyle reality show? That can’t be far behind. Now these quasi chefs/little kids are “living the dream” at 7 or 8. So…….curious as to what you think?

So there you have it,  seven things that got my attention this past week. Anything on your radar? Wishing everyone a wonderful and relaxing Sunday, a great day to recharge for the week ahead. Thank you for stopping in, until next time…..

PS Still working on the subscription issues (about 20% are not receiving the blog) and the Pinterest option, plus a few other things…we ware on it!

Which would you choose?

Hello and happy Friday morning!  Such a busy busy week getting all the presale orders out the door, happy to say we are about 90% done and hopefully will be totally done by today, a major feat. Its been quite a whirlwind of a week. So getting to sit down and do a little virtual retail therapy was a much needed exercise as my form of relaxation:)

As I pointed out Sunday, Coach has completely reinvented themselves in a pretty dramatic way and they are no longer that safe conservative brand that many of us equate the name with. They have branched far out into fashion, accessories, menswear and more. So considering I treated myself to one of their darling bags I thought this would be a fun Which would you choose and I found an extra little something to order in the process. Ready to choose your two faves? Let’s go…..

CHOICE 1 Just love everything about this, classic yet updated bag, gorgeous color and will stand the test of time. Couldn’t you see this becoming a favorite  every day bag? Offered in a few colors that is priced right, click here

CHOICE 2 These are on my spring/summer wish list, I love a simple and comfortable  ballet flat and this one looks like a winner with such a soft leather, click here

CHOICE 3 This is one gorgeous saddle bag in a beautiful shade of gray, roomy, practical, classic styling with a long strap…a great and functinoal every day bag! Click here

CHOICE 4 And they do watches! This would be so pretty in the spring/summer months.  Click here

CHOICE 5  I must admit I wear heels only when absolutely necessary but when I do, I go for something interesting and detailed, this classic pump with the subtle chain detailing is really pretty. Click here

CHOICE 6 Funny I am not a burgundy person but this bag is a stunner! I love the styling and though it comes in black, to me in burgundy it’s a knockout. Click here

CHOICE 7 I bought this wonderful little bag, it is such a beautiful bag with the delicate little flowers, cannot wait to use it come summer!  Click here

CHOICE 8  My favorite style wallet, a zip around where nothing can fall out, also love this color. Click here

CHOICE 9 Had to order these, so my cup of tea…spring and summer here I come! Click here

CHOICE 10  Love a good crossbody bag, and use one every time I go into the city …it’s so convenient to be hands free. This is a good looking crossbody in a favorite color, click here

CHOICE 11 They even do glasses! This tortoise pair are gorgeous, click here

CHOICE 12 A good looking tote in ivory, a beautifully styled bag indeed. Click here

CHOICE 13 Can you believe these gorgeous driving moccasins are $84, if they have your size this is a heck of a deal. Click here

CHOICE 14 How sweet is this wristlet done in the dinky styling? Very “Chanel-ish” a great little bag for an evening out, click here

CHOICE 15 Nice looking chocolate brown suede pair of over the knee boots, gorgeous! Plus they are on sale, click here

CHOICE 16 I love a charm bracelet and own a few, this more delicate version is an update on the classic charm bracelet, pretty! Click here

CHOICE 17 This is one good looking tote in a taupe pebbled leather, love a textured leather and they wear so well, click here

CHOICE 18 When I think of Coach I think of classic and this icon trench is a perfect example, a good looking classic trench coat. Click here

This sure isn’t your mama’s Coach🙂 They certainly have come a long way and stepped up their fashion game. Some of the  clothing fashions I feel are oriented towards a younger more urban/hip consumer, but the bag, shoes and leather goods are just updated while still classic. So which are your two faves?


 What do you think of their new look? Own anything Coach? Sometimes its fun to rediscover a brand we thought was in our past. Thank you for stopping in, wishing everyone a wonderful day. Until next time……

Bluff Diaries- Chapter 12

Good morning,  hope everyone had a sweet Valentine’s Day. First I want to announce the winner of the porcelain planter. Congratulations goes to-

#1 KRISTEN

Please contact us at info@enchantedhome.com with your shipping details so we can get this on it’s way:)

We had a very full day at the warehouse continuing to get porcelain orders out the door and are making great progress! This was my most most successful porcelain sale to date, if you missed out the good news is that a new one is coming later March and I will have a presale in about two weeks so stay tuned, so many exciting new things coming in! It’s really starting to take shape!

It’s hard to believe we are on chapter 12! Things are definitely moving along, right on schedule and we will be there again next month to see the progress. The framing is done and the roughing is soon going to start. We have already chosen all the plumbing and now I am starting to work on the bathrooms which is always fun and exciting.

I love looking at tiles and marble, somehow it just never gets old. I am a marble girl all the way. I think there is nothing more classically beautiful than a marble bathroom. I want to keep the bathrooms clean, crisp, light and airy. Though I am floored (no punt intended) at what is going on with flooring today and the advances that have been made, I will likely keep things on the simpler side.

 Tilebar, to the rescue!  If you dont know them already you must get acquainted!  Not only do they have a sensational array of tiles, both marble, and porcelain…their prices are hard to beat. Not to mention free shipping and incredible customer service. I also love how easy they make getting samples when you are just not sure so easy, five samples for $5!! Have used them a number of times and cannot recommend them highly enough, there is no reason to look elsewhere.

So today is a look at flooring for the baths many of which I am seriously considering. I am going with a light and airy/neutral approach to all the rooms. Next time we will address bathroom lighting which is so important, and here we go-

For the kids/guest baths I like the idea of doing basketweaves, classic and won’t break the bank, click here to see all of Tile Bar’s basetweaves

I also love hex patterns as they too will stand the test of time, any one of these could work beautifully-

Ceramic, these could almost convince me to do a bathroom in something other than marble, just a stunning design and love the icy blue- click here to see

 

For a powder room you want something special and unique…any of these beauties would suit me just fine!

 

My husband and I did the his and her baths in this house too..once you go that route it’s really hard to go back to sharing:) We nixed one large bathroom and did two smaller ones, plus we gave up a tiny bit of the closet (which is still a more than adequate) so have two nice sized bathrooms.

For my husbands I love any of these, just so classically beautiful! Click here to see all waterjet

Or I may steal this one for myself:)

This has a rich masculine vibe

This has a masculine, old world feeling to it

 

For my bathroom I could see any of these-

This just screams feminine and elegance….love the delicacy of the pattern

This is a classic and quite simliar to what I have now, which I still love 5 years later

LOVE these colors, Celeste blue is a favorite, but fear the pattern might be too busy

Back mudroom- Loving this wood inspired tile, great color! Click here for info

Can you believe this is porcelain meant to look like Calcutta Gold marble? AMAZING! And at $9 a sq foot, it won’t break the bank! Click here to see all the porcelains that look like marble

So many gorgeous choices!! Have a favorite? I could close my eyes and pick a few and be very very happy. I look forward to sharing with you in the coming weeks my final selections, winnowing it down as we speak. Have a project of your own? Then definitely check out Tile Bar by clicking here. You can thank me later 🙂

Thanks for stopping in, wishing you a wonderful Wednesday. Until next time…..

So the weekend was a busy one,  worked all day at the warehouse getting orders out,  but then got to do a little shopping, had a lovely dinner with good friends, and some always much needed downtime is on the calendar for today! I cherish my Sundays more and more with each and every day. So here we go with my Seven on Sunday…….

MY AMAZING CUSTOMERS. I love getting in pictures from my customers and am soon going to do a post on some recent edesign projects, some astounding before and afters to share!!

Love the pair of lamps and my pillow  in this pretty setting sent in by a customer-

And how pretty does my chunky ginger jar look in this beautiful bathroom!

This is an amazing before and after that you will not believe…this is the almost the after (window treatments and new chair was not in yet)

I will do a more in depth look into this fun project when I do my post but we took furniture that she wanted to keep and her kids deemed old fashioned and gave it new life. I will share much more on this when I do my post-

BEFORE

AFTER/DURING

This is a current project. The customer had bought this new sofa and didn’t like it but couldn’t see getting rid of it. So reupholstery to the rescue. We are revamping this room and it is coming out beautifully…chose a beautiful pale tan tweedy fabric and will do a bunch of blue and cream pillows

BEFORE

AFTER-  Reupholstered the sofa in a beautiful pale tan/beige tweedy fabric and it’s night and day! The chairs are next on the menu, recognize the jars? We put  a sofa table between the sofas and are creating two separate seating areas

 

2 MY BATHROOM ON WAYFAIR! I was very flattered that the peeps over at Wayfair wanted to feature my bathroom….who says no to Wayfair! Not me:)  Click here to read about what was behind the look I created for my master bath….and thanks Wayfair!

 

3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST So much to share, heavily accented with homes and interiors this week along with a few mouth watering foodie pics!

And my fave this week is this one because it is so picture perfect (a baby shower place setting) love it!

4 THE SWEETEST VIDEO My dad sent this and it just warmed my heart. Not only does the Dad have a fantastic voice but watching his daughter do a duet with him with her adorable inflections is just too sweet for words. Not to mention this song is just a heart warmer, really really cute and a beautiful reminder that the best things in life really are free:)

You really have to watch it until she starts belting her part of the song…such a sweet moment.

 

5 AMAZING LAURIE! I have been a long time fan of Laurie of LB Originals and have an amazing little collection of her beautiful items Not only is she a doll and gem of a person to deal with but she is incredibly thoughtful. I got this most amazing robe from her the other day and am living in it:) I mean seriously…a blue and white pagoda robe, does it get better??? I wake up counting down the hours until I get to come home and slip into it….love it!  Click here to see all of her incredible goodies.

If you want one of your very own, click here.

I also love that she is selling these complete sets of china services combined with her gorgeous stationery items, here are a few.

6.COACH! I remember being in school and Coach being “the” bag to have, it was a huge deal to get one and then as I became an adult I kind of lost interest. It all stared when I was at a luncheon and saw someone with the gorgeous dinky bag…it was love at first sight.

Well, with a new designer at the helm, Coach has reinvented themselves in the most amazing way. I am LOVING so many of their beautiful new items…and gave in to order one of their bags. Here are some faves….click here to see their entire amazing collection.

I was so excited to see these boots on sale….check out all their sales by clicking here

 

7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY. OK this week is all about etiquette. I was in line a few days ago at Starbucks, and in front of me was a very “busy’ youngish lady. She couldn’t stop moving or fidgeting (like she had too much coffee and to think she was in line to buy more) and was on her phone either texting or talking LOUDLY. So loud that literally the entire Starbucks could hear every word and many were starting at her hoping that the stare down might get her to turn the volume down. But nope did not happen.

It was to me, rude, impolite and disrespectful to all those around her who might just have needed a little downtime and quiet, me being one of them! Let me also add she was not talking about anything life changing, she spoke of her car repair, her daughters birthday party and her manicure appt…..yep! Finally one elderly man does what all of us really wanted to and turns around and politely asks if she can keep it down. She gave him a look that could melt the ice off a snowman and went on with her fast and furious conversation.

Now……..what do you think? Was he right? Wrong? Are you on the fence? I think with social media and our incessant 24/7 connection to our gadgets, there needs to be a whole new set of rules in place. A revised etiquette book if you will……paging Emily Post!

So……anything here get your attention? This was a busy busy week with the container having arrived and this coming week will continue to be busy…but fun! The one day porcelain presale will start tomorrow morning so be sure to check back plus there will be a giveaway.

I am looking forward to having a chill day at home….I need it, plus I love to catch a bit of the Grammy’s as I love music (and all the wacky fashion that will inevitably be on display)!  Thank you for stopping in, until next time…..


Random musings as seen through my iPhone

Hello! Well, a whopper of a snowstorm was delivered to us yesterday courtesy of mother nature. It was beautiful but I am now totally ready to fastforward into spring. This cold is for the birds:) My container was due in yesterday but just came in and being unloaded as we speak, that means that I have some redecorating to do as I get the urge every time  a container arrives lol

So I will be busy busy getting lost in a sea of boxes and a shipping frenzy will soon begin as we work hard to get all the orders out! If you want to check the status of your order, feel free to give us a call at 1-800-804-9565.

We will have a one day arrival sale on Monday so definitely check back on Monday.  As I periodically do, I share with you snippets of my life in the last week or so through pictures taken with my iPhone. So here is the last weeks happenings……

 

I have died and gone to blue and white heaven! Laurie of LB Originals sent me the MOST beautiful gift, this outrageously gorgeous blue and white pagoda BATHROBE along with blue and white stationery!!! Love it:) You can get your very own by clicking here!

Teddy awaiting his 12th birthday dinner…..grilled chicken, broccoli and a small side of potato ordered from his favorite restaurant, 12 years doesn’t come around every day!!

Seeing the big blue pot can only mean one thing….beef bourguignon is cooking!

Any chance to make my heavenly baked brie…yum!

My refuge aka my room

My friends daughter had a darling baby boy, what a cutie:)

Superbowl prep, I love a board filled with an assortment of yummy crostinis!

Superbowl dessert..mini cups of fruit and a light spongecake (amazing we had room after feasting on beef Bourguignon)

While stuck in a ridiculous traffic jam in NYC, made lemonade out of lemons and snapped this cute picture of all the police mini coopers lined up in a row

Gorgeous new spring/summer bags coming this way soon!

Do I sound crazy to say I am already thinking about decorating our home in PB? I love this lamp and actually ordered a few of these pillows:)

Of course have to start off with the snowstorm and how much Mr. Teddy enjoyed it….

By the end of the day, the sun peeked out and cast a most beautiful golden glow over this winter wonderland!

Saving the best for last…my very own snowbunny!

I know I know, Teddy is the man and certainly the star of this show. It was so cute seeing him so excited in the snow…such a kid at heart even though he’s an old man (but don’t tell him that).

Also STILL working on the website and tweaking lots of odds and ends, actually hired someone new to finish out all the remaining things to be fixed, so please continue to be patient, should have it buttoned up by mid March at the latest. Stay tuned!!

 Thanks for stopping in, wishing you a wonderful day and end to your week. Stay warm!

Hello! How is your week going? Well looks like my wish for a big snowfall is coming true……though I sure wish the weather gods would have listened and not made it on the day I was due to get my container!! Oh well…..

Accessory Alert- Garden seats

Hello friends and Happy Tuesday to you. Hope you had a wonderful weekend, was that Superbowl the MOST unbelievable game ever!! Talk about a comeback….simply amazing! Had a nice weekend, back to the grind, very excited that the long awaited porcelain container is coming in on Wed!! So many beautiful pieces, be on the lookout for a one day sale probably Thursday or Friday.

We will be working fast and furious on getting all orders out in the order they were received.

So  I am starting a new series….Accessory Alert. Once a month give or take, I will focus in on a particular accessory that I like, use or that has gotten my attention. Hoping I might inspire you (and myself)  or maybe give you an idea of how to use/add/tweak something in your own home! On top of that, if the accessory is something I happen to carry/sell in my online shop, then I just might offer special pricing for that item, and today that is the case!

Today is all about garden seats, I have always loved them but in the last year or two can’t get enough of them and they can be found both inside and outside of my own home……

LOVE the idea of using them for seating at an al fresco setting fabulous! Hadley Court

They work beautifully for end tables and small occasional tables for drinks, books,etc…. Benjamin Dhong

Here is one on my patio, perfect for drinks or a plate of food

I like them in place of a cocktail table, especially here for a punch of color, Traditional Home

Really like the way they were used as mini end tables and proof here that even in a more formal room, they very much have a place! Ashley Whittaker

Great for mudrooms, have to keep this idea in mind for my own!  Alice Lane

Great idea to use for a shower stool if there is not already a shower bench, Martha O Hara

And lovely in an unsuspecting place like a stairway wall….Sarah Bartholomew

This is so smart…..and obvious! A garden seat in a closet. Everyone needs a little chair/stool and this is the perfect size!! Toronto Design Group

Always liked the idea of seeing a pair tucked under a console, beautiful!

Recently added one to my own bathroom and love what it adds

So clever! Using a stool as a seat at a vanity table, love it. BHG

They are perfect for bedrooms and this gives me an idea to add one to my own, Ashley Whittaker

And when space is tight, they make wonderful makeshift little coffee tables

Mark Sikes clearly got  the memo how perfect they are for the outdoors…fabulous!

Don’t forget them in kids rooms too….they are perfect. Kerry Hanson

Great idea to add to a bathroom for an extra little “holding place or shelf” Better Homes and Garden

I really like this idea, a trio of clustered garden stools, so pretty. Ciao Newport

They make wonderful little end tables, Herlong and Associates

I really like the idea of a pair of them at the foot of a bed, never thought about this idea! Chinoiserie Chic

Very practical to use as a small end table that doesn’t take up much space and always looks pretty:) BHG

Always loved this, a pair of garden seats tucked under a console in this most beautiful setting, Ashley Whittaker
