PS The new epic Enchanted Home Love contest has been announced. As of yesterday starting to take your submissions, click here for details. Remember I can only take 60 pictures and have almost 30 so far.

PPS Last day is today for the fabulous pillow promotion, prices are incredible! Click here to see


Until next time…hope the sun is shining and the birds are chirping. Here the sun is out but it’s quite cool, definitely light jacket/ sweater weather! Enjoy….


An epic new Enchanted Home contest you will want to be part of!

Hi friends, busy busy week. over here and allergy season is in full bloom:( Not to mention we are hovering around the 50’s, what gives!! We were near 75 a week ago…I am not loving this throwback to winter. Hope I don’t regret my eagerness in my garden planting.

Speaking of the outdoors, I was hoping to finish my post on using  blue and white outdoors but we have had very chilly, rainy weather so my photo ops were limited. It will post early next week, so please do check back.

Calling all Enchanted Home customers….this ones for you! I haven’t done one of my contests in a while, but I enjoy them immensely. This one is the big daddy of them all, calling it “Enchanted Home Love 3”. This is your time to show the world your decorating chops:) If you have purchased anything from my online shop (or from any of my  promos) then you are eligible to enter. Here are the “rules”-

  • As of today I am accepting up to 2 pictures per reader (only if they are of different things or settings) if it is the same setting,  please send one picture
  • The picture must include at least one item (any item) from The Enchanted Home shop
  • Email your “winning picture” to theenchantedhome@gmail.com
  • Deadline for photo submission is May 14th (but almost always I get to the quota well before that)
  • You can submit any picture you want as long as it is your own (not taken from a website or Pinterest as an example)
  • Most phones take excellent photos,  just be sure you do not send me a small picture, otherwise we cannot use it
  • On subject line for the email please put “contest”
  • There is a cap of 60 pictures so once 60 are received I cannot take any more
  • The first round will be on May 16th, the second round on May 17th, the “showdown” round will be May 18th and a winner will be crowned on May 19th!


The BIG prize-

This is the best part, one very very lucky winner will win a YEAR’S worth of Enchanted Home products…that’s right every month the winner will get in a special treat from my shop. It could be a pillow, a ginger jar, a serving tray, a box of soaps, you just never know…it will be a year of goodies!

A few pointers-

Be sure you feel that your picture is up to snuff. Take time to arrange your item and make sure the lighting is nice and bright (natural sunlight always best). Also you want to be sure your shot is fully focused and sharp. I get lots of beautiful pictures and the competition will be stiff…please submit a picture you truly think is up the challenge! I cannot wait to get them in:)

Some great examples-

Lets take a look at some past entrants and their pictures from past contests. This should give you a bunch of great ideas to get started with your own winning shot.  I think each and every one of these truly exemplifies a  “contest worthy” shot-

Pretty gorgeous, don’t you think!! Yes my readers and customers are indeed a very talented bunch if I do say myself, and there were more, but I had to draw the line somewhere!

What each of these pictures  has in common besides being incredibly beautiful is that they are all very clear, bright and focus in on a particular vignette. Many I have gotten in the past have been beautiful but often were too dark or were not focused….taking a few extra minutes for that “winning shot” might just pay off:)

These should be great examples to go by, now it’s time for you to get busy and start sending me your best shot! You have from now until May 14th to submit your pictures (or until I have 60).

I cannot wait to start getting them……so start channeling your inner Enchanted Home vibe and be sure to check back when the contest begins on May 16th! Until next time…..

PS The pillow promotion is going strong, if you missed it click here, it’s on until Saturday.

Random musings as seen through my iphone….

Good Tuesday morning everyone…first thing I want to do is announce the winner of the blue and white planter, congratulations goes to-


Please email me with your shipping info at theenchantedhome@gmail.com so that your planter can be on it’s way!


Well, between my garden project and getting lots and lots of orders out the door from the recently arrived silver and porcelain containers, I have been super busy but mostly all great things, just not enough hours in the day! It is so wonderful to be able to walk outside without a jacket….spring has sprung and I could not be happier about it.

I periodically share my life with you via my trusty little iPhone….and it does have a unique way to telling a story and taking my readers along with me on my travels. So here’s a look at the highlights of the  last week or so…..




Had a fun city day…went to The Met and to Collichio and Sons for dinner downtown



Caught the late afternoon sun just right..it was a sight for sore eyes after 2 days of rain


This spectacular arrangement was given by a friend…. a match made in heaven with my blue and white! Isn’t my Mottahedeh covered dish a beauty?

indbvvex icxxxxxndex


Had my gorgeous custom monogram from Arabella made into stickers, can use them for so many things…


Flowers are part of my life on a weekly basis made a stop to my favorite wholesale nursery


Took a walk at my friends home along the Long Island Sound on a perfect spring day….

ixcxxxndex inxcxxdex indccxex

Then she made me this yummy and oh so healthy lunch….

inafdsadex inasfd324dex index5454

She clearly has the flower bug as well (above)


My azalea still going strong


My sister in law just bought a beautiful home on the water….here is her “backyard”


Teddy chilling


The last of my flowers from the market

Stopped at another friends home who is putting the finishing touches on her pretty dining room (going to add jars on brackets and hurricanes to table)


And love how my newly arrived gorgeous metal server looks in her kitchen (soon to be on my online shop)


Took a walk on Sunday with my husband,  visiting the horse farm “next door”  is one of my favorite places to walk….so beautiful

Isn’t this stable amazing?

And then we walked to our old street, such fun getting to see my old house…

Front door with white impatients going in, going to add ivy today


Got new mrytle topiary and thankfully my new mid sized fishbowls are a perfect fit!


And now grace my kitchen island


Teddy surrounded by blue and white:)


Added my new pale blue pagodas to my mantle vignette


A highlight this week was bringing home new blue and white loot


Teddy keeping guard over the orchids…no,  they are not all for me though it was tempting!! I kept two for myself. I had over 50 orchids on order for a few friends (one who just got a greenhouse and one who was hosting a function at her home)

inccw2dex inde5454x

A visit to my favorite wholesaler is always anticipated



And so my little garden begins…..

Teddy enjoying a splendor in the grass moment


This was so much fun! I loved every minute of it, about 75% done….hope to finish the rest tomorrow when its not raining


So there you have all the (good) highlights of the last week or so. As you can see plants and flowers took center stage…tis the season. Hope your week is going well, here it’s rainy but the timing is great for my garden:) Wishing you a wonderful day, until next time…

Seven on Sunday

Hi friends…beautiful day here, in fact I would say weather wise it’s been a “10” FINALLY ! Things are starting to turn green and bloom and the birds are chirping loud and clear….the sure signs of spring.  I first want to announce the winner of the beautiful silver bowl, congratulations goes to-


Please email me at theenchantedhome@gmail.com to provide your shipping address so the beautiful bowl can be on it’s way!


Saturday was a great and very productive work day. We have been busy elves, getting orders out the door for the newly arrived container and will continue through  next week. 2 containers in one week is an undertaking but a fun one:)

Today will be a day of rest and relaxation, as well as some long anticipated planting. I am starting my garden today and putting in raised beds….from all accounts of professional gardeners this is the way to go.

So I loaded up my car with everything I need and have someone coming to help me today. Bought my tomatoes, herbs and various lettuce’s to start and will add on what I have room for. Hope whatever you are up to is wonderful and relaxing. Here we go….



1 SPRING!!! So excited that spring is here which means flowers, green grass and gardening. I bought my first batch of impatients, I always buy white. Against the green they are always so beautiful.

This particular breed takes all day sun and as long as you water them daily..they will continue to provide an entire summer of blooms. Here is how things are starting to shape up around here, just took out the cushions yesterday and will soon add my pillows and various blue and white accents…




Fresh basil…a must!

My wonderful “raised bed” kits…great idea!

Got this pair of gorgeous very large myrtle topiary and put them in my new fishbowls on my island, love the effect-pardon the mess in the background I was cooking:)

2 LADYLIKE KATE. I love her, she is so adorable and likable…and love her ladylike style. I also almost always love her fashion choices, current looking yet classically elegant. Take a look at some recent looks from the last month that Kate wore during her very busy globetrotting schedule…..

3. NEW WALLPAPERS TO LUST AFTER. The first one is what started this obsession with Stromheim papers…been a fan of their classically beautiful papers for a long time but am brainstorming as to how/where I can use at least one of these!! Click here to see all of Stronheim’s papers.

5. MY NEW BFF. I must say I LOVE this stuff. Less than $3.00 and worth its weight in gold. It is amazing for so many things, copper, any kind of metal, when you have glue stains on things, ceramic, porcelain. In fact for my own porcelains, most love the antique glaze but if you don’t you can remove it with this magic in a can.

Removes soap stains, rust and a million things. If you want to see some astounding before and afters as if you need any more convincing, click here. Everyone should have this on hand and never be without!!




6. A FASCINATING DOCUMENTARY. I had seen this maybe four years ago and was completely captivated and obsessed. It was such a compelling story and tragic in many ways too. Frankly one I am surprised many history/art classes do not discuss in school.

If you have an hour or so to spare, love art, are fascinated by intrigue, then trust me, you WILL love this documentary as much as I did, loved it so much I bought it and watched it again yesterday.


7. KATE SPADE.  I must say I have not really paid much attention to her line, but I have fallen in love with a number of items, including this perfect cognac every day tote below which is en route to me as we speak! I LOVE anything with a basketweave/woven/rattan effect so really loving this chic tote. Click here to see-


You know how white bags are always tricky, only a few look great and most look well….cheap. And a dressier white bag is even more challenging. Kind of like white shoes. Well…..I was so excited to find this fabulous little bag.

I snatched it right up and its at a price I didn’t’ have to justify to myself, always a perk!! This has the elegance of a Kelly bag without the price tag:) I know I am going to get a lot of use out of this smart looking bag,  and best part my white bag of the season quandary is solved! Click here

And then look at all these shoes….loving every one of them and always a sucker for anything with a bow! Click here to view

Well that about sums things up over here, going to be another spectacular day so I am excited to spend it gardening. Hope whatever you are up to is relaxing and exactly what you want to be doing:) Until next time…..

The porcelain container is here-One day presale and a giveaway to celebrate!

This is for serious flower lovers only-part 2

Hi there friends, now this is the fun part. I got to come home with all of my beautiful flowers from the NY flower market and play, and play I did! If you missed part 1 click here. I had such an amazing time at the NY flower market…I would choose to go there over visiting a  jewelry store any day. What can I say….my husband got lucky:) I am sure I will be going back sooner than later as flowers just make me happy.

Getting to play with all these flowers  makes me want to either become a florist or more realistically plan a party or luncheon, maybe when life “slows down” if that ever happens.  So take a look at the “playing” I did with my flowers, had such fun……can you tell?  I used my Nikon aka the big gun for all of these pictures to be sure the beauty of the flowers was given proper attention! And here we go……


My first arrangement involved blue and white china from Juliska (plus Blue Willow plates) , my own monogrammed napkins and a mix of roses and tulips in one of my blue and whites (the table cloth was from something I have had). I just love this play on colors, so fresh and springy-

inzzwdex inde8uux inbvcdex inde7565x

Then I experimented with tulips in a larger vase…..

Think I went to  flower heaven? Oh yes I did……and most of them are still going strong. Credit to the quality and freshness of the flowers bought at the market vs. a local market or florist…..they tend to last markedly longer which is very interesting.

Here are a few things I learned/tips-

  • Don’t be shy to ask questions when at a flower market, this is all about educating yourself and learning as much as you can and that includes asking about which flowers just came in and are freshest
  • In the flower market it’s totally fine to eavesdrop and get some “insider” secrets:)
  • The tulips from Associated Cut Flowers are really exceptional not in only how beautiful they are but how long they last, amazing selection too
  • You can bargain at the flower market particularly with flowers that only have a few days left
  • I have fallen in love with ranucuulus they have lasted so long and look  like a cross between a peony and luscious rose….so much bang for the buck (case in point these below are 7 days old)!


  • It is wise to cut stems every few days and replace with cold clean water
  • I leave my flowers outside at night as long as it doesn’t dip  below 50, they love cool dry air *just like the fridges at the florist*
  • There is no right or wrong with flower arranging (in my opinion), it’s a  personal form of expression, just have fun and don’t be afraid to experiment!
  • I like the droopiness of tulips and when they take their own direction but if you like erect straight tulips, supposedly dropping copper pennies into the bottom of the vase will do the trick, these beauties are 7 days old!


  • MOST IMPORTANT- Take it from me- don’t think you need an event, party or excuse to buy flowers…buy them just because life is short and you are worth it:)


So that’s a recap on my second trip to the flower market of course doing “official business” 🙂 At least that’s what I tell my husband lol. The energy and inspiration from just being there is somewhat indescribable…… yes it’s that much fun! Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you a great rest of the week and a wonderful evening, the weather is so spectacular, we waited a long long time for this. Until next time…..


PS A few more days to throw your name in the hat for the silver giveaway and the silver promo ends tonight, some great buys! Click here


The silver container has arrived- One day sale and a giveaway!

Hello friends!! Well the silver container arrived, surprisingly before the porcelains (due here within 3 days) . The pieces are WAY more spectacular  than I could have imagined…..soooo beautiful!! Totally made my day:) If you missed out last time, here is your chance (until Wed night) to take advantage of very special pricing.

One always gets nervous ordering such a huge amount of product especially when you are customizing so many pieces, but let me say this has surpassed even my expectations. This is from one of the best silver makers on the manufacturing end and the quality is sublime! As in truly the most beautiful collection of silver I have seen (that is new) to date and I have seen A LOT! I started snapping away at some of these, brought home a whole trunk full and will get the rest tomorrow,  so take a sneak peek-

Try to ignore the annoying reflections

I think my pictures really do these justice (until I get the professional pics) as it captures the warmth/gleam of the silver….

If you are one who placed an order a few weeks ago during the presale, orders will start shipping out later today in the order received (should take 2-3 days to get all orders out).

Today is a one day flash sale for this container as I always do when a container arrives.  Afterwards these will all be online at my shop for about 15% more. Great opportunity to take advantage of a great savings on silver that you just don’t see much anymore. I cannot tell you how spectacular each and every piece is…..almost fainted:)

Thank you for stopping in…..


This is for serious flower lovers only- part 1

Hello and happy Monday evening,  hope you had a great weekend. Here, the weather was a “10”. Finally! OK, don’t say I didn’t warn you…this post today is for serious flower devotees only. If your heart doesn’t beat a little faster at the sight of gorgeous flowers, then this may not be for you:) So, I just couldn’t stay away. I posted a few weeks ago (click here if you missed part 1  and here for part 2) on my trip to the NY flower market…it was such F U N!!!!  I knew I could not wait to go back.

And back I went, with a good friend who is almost as much a  nut for flowers as I am. Now I felt like a “veteran” having opened a few accounts with some of the bigger vendors, and I “showed her the way”. Already having a few favorite shops to visit and knowing which ones aren’t worth the stop. Let me do my best to describe the atmosphere-

I love the feeling of when you walk in, there is such a lively chaos. Flower brokers and buyers bartering/negotiating (and sometimes shouting) over one another while the stock boys run around furiously trying to keep everyone happy and orders promptly filled and out the door. Flowers are everywhere as are people and it’s a busy bustling no frills  place where the flowers take center stage.

There is a certain energy that is unmistakable..and I love every bit of it. I even love the old fashioned approach, no fancy computer systems, its old school…old fashioned registers, even sometimes just calculators and they wrap everything in brown paper. Boring old Kraft paper never looked so good! So first a peek at what I saw this time around and then part 2 will be on my “creations” in a day or two-





The peonies were DIVINE, in every shade of pink and white!

It’s hard to make out here but cherry blossoms were lined along the street sometimes towering at 6 or 7 feet tall! If only I was hosting a party…..

This combo below has me dreaming of a luncheon with small full arrangements of these three flowers, love green, white and purple together!

Roses in every hue


And here is what came home with me…

These roses above were a few days old so I got the entire bunch for $10 (after my negotiating) comes along with living in New York:)

These pink tulips were unbelievable! And they are lasting so well….discovered the best tulips come from Associates Flowers FYI

If you are ready for more, stay tuned for what I created at home. Still 6 days later very much enjoying them, here is one sneak peek-



I just cannot wait to share with you part 2! Have you ever been to a flower market in your neck of the woods? I know this will be a frequent stop for me, and really can’t wait until I plan my next party….really it is such a fun experience, if you  have the chance to go….DO! Thanks for stopping in, wishing you a fabulous day.

Silver is coming in tomorrow, exciting! Porcelain container on Tues or Wed. So I will be  a busy girl indeed this coming week on top of everything else I have going on….hope whatever you are up to today is relaxing and just what you want to be doing.

Here we go with my Seven on Sunday…


1 PLANTING A GARDEN? As the warmup is finally underway (and it better be here to stay) I am starting to daydream about my garden. I was listening to a Sirius station while stuck in traffic the other day and caught the end of a show, and I was so taken with everything this person (You Bet Your Garden)  was saying I stopped my car and scribbled down a bunch of his tips.

Such as……. every garden should have a raised bed of at least 4 feet wide by a minimum of 8 (no need to till the soil), that tomatoes  should not be planted in the same spot year after year, that lettuce does best in August, that zucchinis like to hide and you will often only see the leaves thinking there is no zucchini then one day will find one the size of a mini baseball bat hiding, and finally that pansies are super hardy, can survive winters and are great in salads as they are totally edible etc. Here is his website which thankfully I caught, a true wealth of information. Click here to visit You Bet Your Garden….

3. PARTY INSPIRATION. It’s hard to look at this picture and not be inspired to host (or attend) a party! Just love everything about this. And what really caught my eye is those adorable pillows on each chair, as a favor for each guest to take home. I love that idea! A few party pics have really struck a chord with me lately..and I feel something coming on:) Here are some beautiful inspirational pictures that have the wheels turning….


And some more gorgeous party inspiration-

3. NEW FABRICS TO LUST OVER. When I fall in love with a fabric I fall hard. Found a few recently that were an instant love affair.The John Robshaw fabrics are to die for….so love them.

These three beauties really stood out to me but the first one I have ordered and will make a beautiful tablecloth out of, can’t wait! These are some faves from his collection, I can see this one as a tablecloth and then any of the ones underneath as a topper…so chic!

This  fabric is out of stock however I have 15 yards on hold to ship in May, I plan on doing a tablecloth and napkins…can’t wait!



Also having these napkins made and look how great with the fabric-


And a few more that caught my eye, great fabrics for tablecloths or toppers….

Also from Thibaut is this long time favorite, (St. Tropez  in blue). I really want to use it somewhere, maybe for a guest room in Palmetto Bluff but my version will be a more transitional feeling, may just use it for an upholstered headboard. Its a little more traditional than I am expecting the house to be but I  just love it…have to use it someplace!



4. MY INCREDIBLY TALENTED CUSTOMERS. I feel like a proud mom when I boast about my readers/customers and their beautiful homes. I love getting in your pictures to add to my online gallery of my products in your homes.

So do keep them coming!! In fact I am going to announce a very special contest for all Enchanted Home customers in a few weeks with an epic giveaway item you will not want to miss out on. Just check out a few recent pics readers sent me…..and click here to see them all. And if you have one to submit for my online gallery, email it to me at theenchantedhome@gmail.com.

5. INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST You will see a heavy accent (not even on purpose) of blue and white this week. Truthfully it is beautiful year round but something about the spring and summer really gets my senses into overdrive. Of course there is a dose of gorgeous flowers and a few monograms to round out this beautiful batch-

6. CHINOISERIE PILLOWS. One of my most favorite discoveries since opening my online ship (can’t believe its been almost three years) is the incredible handpainted chinoiserie pillows. I will be expanding upon them with the new site. It is a fully custom line, each piece made to order. They are custom sized and painted to your specifications…pretty amazing:)

A customer ordered a lumbar for a king bed and I fell so in love with it that I ordered one for my own room…and boy, was that a great decision. LOVE it! Click here for info (lots more will be featured with the new site in May)

7. ONE GREAT MOVIE. You know how sometimes a movies comes and seems to slip below the radar? Well this is one of them, this movie is fabulous. I highly recommend it and only talk about movies that I genuinely loved.

It is as beautiful as it is moving, touching and will very likely make you cry (just a forewarning). The young boy who made his debut in this film is a force to be reckoned with, and I have feeling a name/face we will be seeing a lot more of. It’s now available on Netflix…..oh and a very special shoutout/thank you to my dear mom for recommending it. Nice call)


So that is what’s on my radar this week, anything here interest you? Do you have a recommendation of some sort? If so,  would love to hear about it. Thank you for stopping by, hope the sun is shining and the birds are chirping wherever you might be.  Until next time…..
