Hi there, by the time you read this I will be away and? hopefully basking in the warm sun. A few days away for a little R and R, kind of like the calm before the storm (that would be the holidays). I plan to relax and go on a mini vacation mode and even left my diet in NY:) I LOVE the holidays but know I have a very busy month ahead and am gearing up!

Hope this posts on time and look forward to a few days away. Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend. I will be back on Tuesday, and will have my sleeves rolled up and ready for the holiday hoopla to begin! Here is my seven on Sunday for this week…..

2 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST Wow this week there was so? much to love, it was like sensation overload! Particularly that the holidays are in full force, the beauty is just over the top. It was hard to narrow it down, but I managed to and here my absolute faves this week…..

4 ONE GREAT POT OF SOUP. I love soup and make it on average twice a week during the winter months. A loaf of crusty bread and you are good to go. One of my favorites (and my families too) is my pasta fagiole soup. It is easy but sooo good and satisfying and because you add pasta at the end, it really can double as a meal. So below is the recipe! It also freezes really well (but do not add the pasta as it could get mushy)-



2 tablespoons (2 turns around the pan) extra-virgin olive oil
1/8 pound (about 3 slices) pancetta, chopped
2 (4 to 6-inch) sprigs rosemary, left intact
1 (4 to 6-inch) sprig thyme with several sprigs on it, left intact
1 large fresh bay leaf or 2 dried bay leaves
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 small carrot, finely chopped
1 rib celery, finely chopped
4 large cloves garlic, chopped
Coarse salt and pepper
2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans
1 cup canned tomato sauce or canned crushed tomatoes
2 cups water
1 quart chicken stock
1 1/2 cups ditalini
Grated Parmigiano or Romano, for the table
Crusty bread, for mopping



Heat a deep pot over medium high heat and add oil and pancetta. Brown the pancetta bits lightly, and add herb stems, bay leaf, chopped vegetables, and garlic. Season vegetables with salt and pepper. Add beans, tomato sauce, water, and stock to pot and raise heat to high. Bring soup to a rapid boil and add pasta. Reduce heat to medium and cook soup, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes or until pasta is cooked al dente. Rosemary and thyme leaves will separate from stems as soup cooks. Remove herb stems and bay leaf from soup and place pot on table on a trivet. Let soup rest and begin to cool for a few minutes. Ladle soup into bowls and top with lots of grated cheese. Pass crusty bread for bowl mopping.

5.? TIGER FLOWER STUDIO. Speaking of beauty, I cannot get over how exquisite the art is by Paige Lee Huffy. Tiger Flower Studio represents to me some of the most talented artists I have ever seen. You must click here to see this site to see….beauty overload. I think I need to include a few on my Christmas list! Her gorgeous work also graced the recent book of Carolyne Roehme, understandably!?

6 A TRULY FABULOUS MOVIE I love great movies and when I see one that I love…….really love,? I can watch it over and over. Enter “The Way”. Starring an unbelievable Martin Sheen and his son Emilio Estavez who both deliver stellar performances……this is one of the best movies I have ever seen. No nudity profanity, violence,etc…just a beautiful and super moving slice of life movie.

The storyline is so touching and poignant, I guarantee you will love this movie plus the European countryside is a really nice “extra”. There? are several scenes that are so moving, they just stir something inside that few movies can. We watched it over the Thanksgiving break (again) and I just had to recommend it to all you movie buffs out there!

7. A FABULOUS GIFT WRAPPING LINE. I discovered this wonderful line via good ol Instagram and just in love with what they do. If you are like me and love and cannot get enough of beautiful giftwrap you must click here to visit Citrine Living....such a beautiful line of giftwrap!!

Which would you choose?

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving filled with togetherness, laughter and of course great food! I almost rolled out of bed after our feast oh but was is it ever worth it! Ours was? so wonderful, a really relaxing day, the food was sooo yummy, watched a few movies, and just enjoyed each others company. It was exactly as I had hoped. I am not one to go shopping on black Friday. Frankly the intensity of the entire experience completely intimidates me.

It seems like many who go out and bravely face the crowds are veteran shoppers who liken shopping to an Olympic sport…in other words it is serious business! So the thought of having to face people like that to vie for a parking spot or place in line….um, no thanks. I think I will happily stay home and work on some early bird (to me) Christmas decorating, enjoy a day of leftovers all day long and shop from home. Something I have become really good at:)

I mean seriously isn’t shopping from home just the best! Best invention since the dishwasher if you ask me:) Horchow and I are very good friends, I shop there a lot, their selection is fabulous (but my porcelains are better lol) on just about everything and when they have a sale, it is serious business.

So today’s Black Friday sale with everything at 20, 30 and 40% is phenomenal. I already did some early bird shopping. I also found some great deals for an e design customer I am working with. Thought it would make a fun which would you choose. Ready to choose your two faves? Here are my top 16…..




This rug is such a beauty… the colors!! Click here



CHOICE 2 This flatware is so beautiful, I? love the versatility. Click here



This 2 drawer dresser in this beautiful painted finish is 40% off, click here



I have never seen these peacock lamps this low! Click here



These dishes are so pretty, always a sucker for anything scalloped.? Click hereHCH801U_mz


And you know I am madly in love with this gorgeous pagoda stationery! Click here



This giclee is a stunner, and the price makes it hard to resist. Click here



These are really tempting me! I have wanted really large outdoor nutcrackers for a long time…and they are 40% off, just saying:) Click here



Just what I need another bedding set to fall in love with! LOVE This pagoda bedding from Legacy… here



Was excited to see the cocktail napkins at 40% off, always like to have these on hand. Click here



These slightly more transitional pillows are a steal at $72! Very pretty, click here



A Venetian mirror for $285….unbelievable! Click here



Ordered this a few months ago for a gift and the recipient loved it….very handy! Click here



Just recommended this to an edesign customer, imagine a 6 x9 for under $1000, love the colors and style of this rug. Click here



Just ordered this this morning, had an area where I needed a dressy flush mount lighting fixture, could not resist the deal! Click here



Recommended this to a e design customer, a pair for her new family room. I dont’ know that I have ever seen a wing chair for $549! Click here



Ahhh, so many beauties so many sales! For me personally the thought of going into overcrowded stores and fighting for a parking space with some obsessed buyer does not appeal to me at all. I am perfectly fine to stay in the comfort of my home and do most of my shopping from my computer.

It is amazing how the internet has changed retail forever as we know it. The convenience is just incredible and it just makes life so easy! So whatever you are up to today, hope you score a bargain!

Until next time……

Happy Thanksgiving friends….as we all gather with our loved one to celebrate this day of thanks, I have a special thank you to make and that is to you! So thank you to my friends from all corner of the earth, loyal readers and customers, my amazing blog friends, all of whom I would never have had the pleasure to? meet without my blog, The Enchanted Home.

I want to say a special thank you to all of our service men and women and police officers who are keeping us safe today. The sacrifices they make are awe inspiring. They do not see their families for long periods of time, live in tight quarters, risk their lives on an hourly basis and to me deserve our utmost praise.Without them we would not get to enjoy the freedom and liberties that we do…..I feel they do not get the credit and praise they so deserve. So a huge thank you to every one of them on this day of thanks.

It is quite remarkable how one blog can bring so many people together.? I am so grateful for your friendship,support, kindness and for the joy you bring me literally on a daily basis… about a labor of love. I love what I do thanks to you!

Been busy aside from the blog and shop keeping, fulfilling orders to get out in time for Thanksgiving. I will really cherish this day of rest and great food as we gear up for the busy Christmas season knocking on our door. We are a small group this year, 9 and I look forward to a day of relaxation, togetherness, and great food!

From my house to yours….Happy Thanksgiving!

Which would you choose?

Hi friends, I know we are all busy bees this week running around and facing the crazy crowds at the markets in anticipation of Thanksgiving….myself included. We will be a small group this year which makes me frankly quite happy:) I am hosting and looking forward to a feast and then some serious relaxation involving game playing, movie watching, leftover bringing and doing a whole lot of nothing else:)

It has been cold here lately…..I am talking 20’s and 30’s! Definitely boot weather, in fact wore my first pair of boots the other day….and realized I need to replenish. I live in boots Dec- March so they see lots of mileage!

I have two faves one wedge and one Stuart Weitzman over the knee that have seen several lifetimes….so think it’s time to bring in a few new pair. Found some great ones including all weather, rain boots, low everyday boots and dressier boots. Thought it would make a great Which would you choose. So ready to choose your two faves? Here we go…..




?Great quilted rainboot, love that it can be folded down and have a totally different look. Great looking for inclement weather, click here



Own these in black and love them in this rich brown, great fit and very stylish looking….great leather that gets softer with use. Click here



Isn’t this a great looking pair of boots! Love the fleece top and the fact that they are weatherproof and ready for monsoons or blizzards! Click here



Could not believe these darling boots are rain boots! So cute, and so reasonably priced, had to order them. Click here



These are gorgeous, love the color and the fur is faux, a yes for me. Click here

By Invitation Only

Good morning, hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was busy but lots of fun, attended a beautiful party in NYC on Saturday (shared highlights via instagram). Yesterday spent part of the day getting ready for Thanksgiving, hard to believe it’s in a few short days.

Speaking of parties……unfortunately I had to miss the last two BIO’s? so am so happy to “be back”. This months theme is such a fun one, planning a fantasy dinner party and getting to invite 10 guests. I had to really think hard about this one, as there are so many who? intrigue me. But not all are people I would necessarily want to spend an entire evening with, you know?


So it has to be someone I am fascinated by but also who would make a great dinner companion! I like mixing people from different walks of life…makes it so much more interesting than everyone being cut from the same cloth and talking about the same bland subjects (I do enough of that in real life lol).

I firmly believe that variety really is the spice of life and like the idea of mixing things up a bit. So after much pondering here is my final ten (I do have a B list just in case anyone cannot make it:)


At my table will be……




And here is why the lucky 10 were chosen-

Bill Gates-I really love and so admire this guy,? in absolute awe of his incredible generosity (yes he can afford it but so can many others and I don’t see all of them giving away their fortunes as in 60 billion, as he has committed to doing) he just seems so kind, obviously brilliant, down to earth and I bet he would be an exceptionally fascinating person to be seated next to and I have a few questions about those rumors of Microsoft that I am hoping after a glass of wine he just might answer:)? OK, OK….Bill you can have the seat next to me!


Pope Francis-? Do I really need an explanation? What an inspiring man he is, someone who can unite and whose presence and spirit truly transcends religious affiliation, cultural and ethnic divides. His humility astounds me and his lifelong devotion to the poor is so admirable and inspiring. I only recently read that he found his calling to the church in the most unbelievable way!

He was on his way to propose to the girl he loved, and on the way stopped at church for confession. He says something very powerful happened and that is when he realized he needed to devote his life to God. I would so love to talk to him about that moment as well as so much of what is going in our world right now, a topic he is always so insightful about. He is just so likable and I just know he would make a fascinating dinner guest.


Adele- Beautiful inside and out, any interview I have read of hers has been wonderful, and has made me think “yes we could be friends”. I love how unaffected she seems by her fame and talent, she still does her own thing and plays by her own rules, you really have to admire that. She almost quit the music biz for good for motherhood. And lets face it with a voice like hers that would be a tragedy. If we are really lucky maybe she will serenade us after dinner? Bono maybe you can join in?


Bono- He strikes me as not only a really nice and? humble guy given his musical skills but someone who from the start used his music to encourage and be a part of social change is someone to be admired. Both he and “Bill” (yes, we are on a first name basis) were named Time Magazine’s person of the year. He seems to be a great mix of intelligence, artsy and musical genius and a devoted humanitarian, not to mention he would add a cool factor to my group:)


Anna Wintour- She does intrigue me,I must admit.? The power she holds is really remarkable. My friends daughter works at Vogue and one of the first things she was told that if she encounters Anna anywhere (like in the elevator) do not look at her or say anything, not even a hello. Huh? I need to crack the code. My first order of business would be to get the fashion priestess to laugh. I know she has to laugh and Anna you cannot wear your sunglasses in this house…I want to see you! I bet she might surprise us once we crack that legendary icy veneer.


Kate and William I just love these two…..they just seem so incredibly? sweet,? warm and real. I would love to talk about everything from parenting, to the Throne, to living in Buckingham Palace? and of course “the queen” I? need to know the inside? scoop plus? anything else that might come up. And in this one instance,? I would? make an exception and allow them to bring their adorable kids!


Jennifer Lawrence- I really like her, think she is a very talented actress and she just has to be a smidgen (or more)? in real like who she plays in so many of her roles. I just know that has to be a glimpse into the “real her”? Authentic, self depreciating, funny, not afraid to fail (or fall for that matter)…I think she would be loads of fun and not at all a typical stuffy self absorbed Hollywood starlet. I also learned she loves horses (we have that in common) and was impressed by her starting her own foundation to support various causes that mean something to her. I do believe she is single, so I may have to play matchmaker and might put she and Bobby side by side, humm…….


Nancy Meyers-? Definitely one of my favorite producers…..I LOVE her movies, her aesthetic is so in sync with my own (Somethings Gotta Give, Private Benjamin, Father of the Bride, The Holiday, It’s Complicated, The Intern) to name just? a few and many of these she was not only the producer but the writer, we are talking seriously talented. I would love to speak to her about her career, what inspires her with each movie and maybe just maybe collaborate on an idea I have for her next movie! Nancy you can sit on my other side because we have a script to write:)


Bobby Murphy- I know you are probably asking who the heck is Bobby Murphy? Well he is the young twenty something Stanford grad who founded Snapchat (yes that very social media that your kids are on 24/7)and sold it for a cool 10 billion dollars. I am fascinated by young, brilliant visionaries and think he could be an interesting? addition to the group. Bobby, we need to talk about the “next great thing”… I have a few nieces who might want to meet you:) if Jennifer doesn’t snatch you up first:)


**Full disclosure If they were alive, two people I would have invited would have been Robin Williams and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, two all time favorite actors who were both gifted in their fields but sadly so tormented too, I would have loved to have been able to sit down and talk to them about life)


Here is a little bit about how the evening will play out…..everyone will arrive and we will gather in the living room for cocktails and nibbles. After a short while we will proceed into the dining room where we will have an incredible meal that will have been prepared by none other than Mario Batalli and Grant Achatz (and yes Mario and Grant you can both pull up a chair at my celebrity studded dining table because afterall you too are celebrities in your own right)!


This duo of celebrity chefs will wine and dine us with an incredible meal? over the course of a few hours, conversations will be flowing, laughter will echo, funny tales will be told and a rip roaring time will be had by all.

We will then go to the “lower level” where Adele and Bono insist upon delighting us with an impromptu concert. We crack open several bottles of bubbly and let the night flow. Oh what an enchanted night it will be! Cheers….




Thank you for stopping in……hope you enjoyed this. Who would you want at your fantasy dinner table? It does make you think about about how much fun that could really be, doesn’t it? Hope you have a wonderful day. Be sure to stop over at Splenderosa by clicking here to see not only her post but all of the others, it’s such fun to see everyone’s ideas! Until next time…..

Seven on Sunday

Hi happy Sunday to you. First things first….the winner of the blue and white vase!! Congrats goes to-

#4? Marianne says:

? Please contact me at to provide your shipping details.


Before I forget a number of you asked if my The Enchanted Home mugs are for sale. Yes I got them in and will offer them up soon, but if you want to place an order? you can email me at

How is your weekend going? Ours was a busy one, we went to an over the top party last night and got home way later than I like to stay out..but it was fun and so beautiful. And believe it or not……I walked up 20 that’s right TWENTY flights (with my willing companion….my husband).

We were at the gorgeous St. Regis all decked out for the holidays and with the exception of having to walk to up 20 flights it was a fabulous night. Cocktails were on the second floor but the party was way way up:) Woke up with slightly sore legs, guess I earned myself a great meal later today:) Definitely going to make this a chill day as the upcoming week is B U S Y!

So here is my seven for this Sunday-




1 ADELE Love this woman’s voice….my gosh she is soooo talented. I don’t think shes made a song that I dont just love. I also like her as a person, she is? beautiful? inside and out. I was SUPER bummed to find out she had scheduled an impromptu live concert in NY this past Tues at Radio City Music Hall but you could buy tickets, you had to win them and by the time I found out it was too late:( If I were 18 again I would have gone outside Radio City Music Hall and tried my luck at scoring a ticket!

Anywho this new song is so beautiful and emotional. I love the video and the cinematography is beautiful and very powerful. It inspired to me make a mental list of everyone I need to say I am sorry to.:)

Mom, sorry if I was ever mean or said I was too busy to talk. Boys, sorry for yelling and not always agreeing and saying yes. To my husband,? sorry for scolding you about buying that antique car telling you it was a waste of money:) Teddy, I am sorry I didn’t give you that chicken bone that you were begging for,? I didn’t want you to choke. Ahh…my list goes on. If you need inspiration to make your own “I am sorry” list,? watch this video-


2. NEW ORLEANS. Haven’t been in years, last time was for my grandfathers funeral, so it was not a happy time but we did manage to take an extra few days in NOLA and must say we ate our way through those 48? hours. Started with beignets and ended with a bang with a mega crawfish etoufee dinner. Stayed at the Ritz Carlton which at that time was newly redone after Katrina and even hit an amazing jazz bar, gotta love that city.

My heart warms overtime I hear or read about things looking up for this wonderful iconic old city. It is a foodie’s heaven and I believe still a great antiques mecca. I think I am due for a trip back. I have alluded to how I would love one day to own a gourmet shop/market/cafe/bookstore and The St. Roch Market? is exactly how I envision it..isn’t this gawgeous? (OK mine would be smaller but just love this place)!

4. CHARLES FAUDREE’S COUNTRY CABIN. I need a cabin! This is sooo beautiufl and chic, and such a beautiful example of his extraordinary work. I loved how he always incorporated blue and white into the mix and often featured his namesake buffalo check which gives his spaces such a warm and cozy feel.

What a talent and legend! Just look at how beautiful this place is…can you imagine when its snowing outside and you are in cooking up a storm and entertaining (only people you really like though) lol. Click here to read more about it at Traditional Home

5. CASA DE PERRIN. This is scary and dangerous territory for me, a bonafide china fanatic. Every closet and my entire butlers pantry is literally busting at the seams with enough china to serve an entire small village and yet I cannot seem to stay away!!! What’s wrong with me?

I nearly fell over when I saw how gorgeous their things are, Case de Perrin rocks! They are the ultimate rental company located in California, their website will make you want to have a party. Their curated line of spectacular china and glassware is just over the top amazing! I am madly in love with the Anna Weatherley scalloped chargers and it’s about the only thing I can justify buying as they would with all my dishes (and trust me that is a lot)!

And this is the Anna Weatherley charger I am loving and seriously would go with every bit of china I own….

And just this weekend in honor of Thanksgiving, an honorary #8-

8.? A HANDY LIST. With Thanksgiving day coming up this week, thought these two little nifty little charts would come in handy for all of you hosting and entertaining. I personally have found using a baking bag to work really well to keep the turkey moist and really good, always use one. Only thing I don’t think I agree with on the first list is the 1 bottle of wine for four people? Ugh….not in this house:)




So there you have my Seven on Sunday. Hard to believe next week is Thanksgiving! We will be about 10 people and I am hosting so I will be busy planning out my favorite eating day of the year! Hope you have a great day and end to your weekend. Until next time…..

Random Saturday musings……

Hi there, hope your weekend is off to a great start. One toe out of bed and I realized its much colder today, I feel it in my bones. Tonight we have a fancy schmancy party in NYC, black tie so I need to finish putting my party outfit together.

I have had such a busy busy week, pretty much to my ears in blue and white with the presale…response was incredible, there is ONE HOUR left for the presale, click here to view (many things sold out and very low quantity on others). What is left will be up for grabs once the container actually arrives on or around Dec.8th so stay tuned:)

This is kind of a mix of my normal random musings taken with my iphone and a running monologue of random thoughts…….


I look at my instagram and seriously cannot believe that there are actually people whose homes are fully decorated for Christmas……say what??? I am sorry but I still have pumpkins everywhere and am going to milk my efforts for making things look festive for autumn/Halloween just a wee bit longer. Then I go to the market and there is a full on display of Christmas wreaths, but it’s only Nov. 19th people! Too soon, too soon, anyone else agree?


I have surrendered to my kids not being willing participants to taking a picture for my annual Christmas card so think it’s going to be Teddy in his new Santa suit that I just got him and if I am lucky my youngest son.? It’s really sad as it is closing a chapter of many many Christmas cards featuring my three boys. Oh well….life goes on.



On a different subject, can someone who is far more computer savvy than I please explain how on earth I have been selected to get on a regular basis- emails trying to sell me adult diapers and invite me to their cougar dating site?

LOL…I kid you not. S C A R Y! First off thank lordy I am far from needing adult diapers thank you very much and am happily married (except when my husband wants to put an embargo on any more blue and white or new china sets coming into our home)!

Speaking of which, I was cleaning out my pantry and came across some of my favorite plates which I think I will use for Thanksgiving……

and my blue willow set makes me want to plan a lunch for friends…always so pretty!


I used blue willow and also used a healthy dose of shamless self promotion the other day when a friend stopped by for an impromptu coffee break and I replaced the matching blue willow mug with my own The Enchanted Home mug:) It looks so cute….

And on the subject of pretty things….how gorgeous are these new arrivals of the chinoiserie handpainted pillows? Unfortunately they are headed out to their rightful owners, as tempting as it is to kidnap them!


I have to admit I am a bit of a news junkie and it’s on pretty much 24/7. It is sooo depressing and so frightening though. I find myself waking up at 2 or 3 in the morning feeling anxious then you guessed it….turning on the news. Anyone else feeling this way?

It has me on the edge of my seat which is exactly what those barbarians want. I however will not give in to fear, no way. I will continue to fly, go into NYC…there is no way they are going to strip me of my freedom and liberty to enjoy all that we as Americans are so grateful to have.


Anyone feeling like they are in the mood to win a free and beautiful home furnishing? Then visit Decor Market’s instagram by clicking here?? to follow them and where they are giving away an item a week to celebrate their Instagram launch! Also? check them out at, such a great great site for so many wonderful and so many well priced items, amazing rug selection and some gorgeous furniture pieces too (LOVE this new Tibetan rug collection)


Speaking of retail therapy I will be hopping on over to Horchow’s holiday prep event to see if there are any fill ins I cannot live without, at up to 40% off it’s a great time to realize you “need” something! Click here to visit Horchow


We are going to Naples, Florida…have never been. Can anyone make some great suggestions of restaurants/things to do while we are there? And don’t be bashful about showing in some great shopping spots, out of courtesy for my husband. If they are that great we OK I, need to know about them!


And finally the other day I came home and as I typically do late afternoon when its cold outside, immediately turned on the fireplace in the family room (it’s gas) and then got busy cooking, doing various things around the house. I then was looking for Teddy and couldn’t find him, then lo and behold, look at what I saw……as proud as an African lion perched on my husbands favorite chair in front on the roaring fire was Teddy taking a late day siesta….I knew I raised a smart pup:)
