One word with Tina from The Enchanted Home and a Safavieh giveaway!!

Was cleaning out my files of old posts, and I came across this post that I somehow never posted! I had done this quite a while ago and thought I might as well post it as several had asked me to do one on myself way back when.  Giveaway details on bottom So here it goes….

OK I am going to spare you a sappy intro because well, that would be well just really strange since it is about moi! However many people asked me to do one on myself so I figured why not. What the heck…..it will give my brain a chance to focus on something else other than fabrics, wallpaper, and lighting fixtures. So here we go………say hello to Tina from The Enchanted Home!

One quality I love in people is: Authenticity (no phonies or social climbers please)

If my house could only be furnished in one color it would definitely have to be: White


One luxury I cannot live without: clean water and my computer


If I had to have one designer decorate my entire house with 0 input from me it would have to be: This is so hard….there are so many talents out there!It would be a “cocktail”of a heaping teaspoon of  Kathy Kincaid, a pinch of Charles Faudree, a dab of Phoebe Howard, a smidgeon of Dan Carithers and a sprinkle of Bunny Williams. There!



If I had to choose coffee or tea it would be: Coffee! Though lately I am enjoying and drinking more tea, especially many wonderful flavored teas like peach mango and pomegranate…yum!



One place I have been that I would love to go back to: Italy (hoping to go to Positano, The Amalfi coast and Tuscany SOON)



One place I am longing to visit is: China and Greece, oops that’s two!


One talent I wish I had was: sing (even better than I do- if that is possible…totally kidding )


I think most people would agree I am very: friendly and funny 

If I could change one quality about myself it would be: to be less impatient and more tolerant.


One career I could see myself having would be: a screenwriter or producer

If food is therapy, when stressed I indulge in: chocolate, preferably with nuts and tons of caramel 


One of my favorite brands for clothing is: Tory Burch

If my life were a book, the title would be: An Enchanted Life



My favorite flower is: Peonies ( tied with orchids, hydrangeas and French tulips)



I would love to have coffee and a chat session with this famous person: Princess Diana

A favorite TV show I can’t miss: If I am to be honest….Top Chef, Million dollar decorators, any of the “housewives” shows on Bravo (guilty pleasure)Hey, at least I am being honest:)They are fun and its kind of hard to believe they are “for real”! Bravo rocks! But on the flip side, I am also a serial news junkie.

Hollywood is: Too superficial for my taste but do love a great movie so am indebted to what they do!

Tuscany or Provence? Tuscany. No Provence. No Tuscany. No Provence. Sorry either one is a dream!


The next presidential election will be: The typical explosion of fireworks and finger pointing right up until election night.

The one best thing about blogging is: the incredible friendships and connections I have made and continue to make



A guilty pleasure for me is: indulging in good food and retail therapy

A clothing designer I think that has great style: Ralph Lauren or Tory Burch



My strongest quality would have to be: That I am a loyal, devoted friend

The best restaurant I have ever been to was: A few come to mind but in recent years, dining at Le Meurice in Paris was pretty spectacular (and decadently delicious)!


Most overrated actor/actress is: Alive: Kim Kardashian (if you can even call her an actress)


If my life were a documentary, I could see this actress playing me: Possibly  Charlize Theron



One thing I like about my appearance is: my eyes



One thing I can honestly say I love about myself is: That I am very generous and love to live in the moment


Town or country: country (but having a small city place for weekend jaunts would be quite nice)



One person I admire: I have to say three, my husband and my parents. Awesome in every way.

Pick a decade to live in, any decade: 20’s, flapper dresses, amazing headdresses,crazy parties,good manners, chivalry, champagne….need I say more! Always say I was born in the wrong era!



My favorite room of my house is: my kitchen, where it all goes down!

If I were an animal I would be a…dog, Teddy of course.

A book I would recommend to everyone would be…
Cutting for Stone or The Help 

                                     



If I were planning a huge family reunion, this is where I would want to have it: On a beautiful beach in a oceanfront home in Hawaii or in a vineyard in the heart of Napa Valley!


One thing I wish everyone could be more of: compassionate and accepting. Oops…there I go again, I said two not one! Those two things could change our world.

In one word life is…thrilling!
                                 

  Ism’t she great!! JUST KIDDING!! I love these kinds of things, a fun and interesting way to get to know what makes people tick.  Thank you for reading and stopping by to hear what I have to say.

One word with Sharon from My French Country Home

Told you I would be changing up my banner often, I am in a hydrangea frame of mind lately…..they are like summers poster child!


Also for those of you who asked, the new blue and white ginger jars and oversized bowl are now up on my shop site

Good morning! Well I am down to the last two guests posts for my “One word” series, before I start brainstorming about another series highlighting some of my favorite bloggers.   Its been such a pleasure featuring so many incredibly talented women, and today’s guest is no exception. Sharon from My French Country Home is, as many of you know a source of amazing French inspiration, who lives in the most idyllic countryside of France. Visiting her on her blog truly is my guilty pleasure every morning where I get to see beautiful France through her eyes, whether its her horses meandering right outside her front door, or her trips to the local brocante fairs or even simple things like taking a long leisurely walk accompanied by the family pooches through the picturesque fall foliage.

 If you want to get taken away and I do not say taken away lightly,  to the beautiful countryside of France, make no mistake…….it doesn’t get better than visiting My French Country Home.
So I was thrilled when Sharon agreed to be my guest today and as I started reading over her post, I got lost in a beautiful, dreamy world of a time gone by,a picturesque place where time really does stand still and where things move a little slower allowing one to savor all of life’s simple pleasures. Reading over this was, believe me,  absolute bliss so today I am just  thrilled to share the goodness with you, my dear readers and followers.  Enjoy and thank you Sharon!

I just have to show you few images from Sharon’s blog and yes these are all her images taken from her so called “every day life”. Guess “every day life” is a relative term, snapshots of mine would include a crazy long Starbucks line of caffeine craving overworked mortals, me sitting in a carpool line, me yelling at some telemarketer for bothering me when I am trying to multitask, waking up running around screaming for everyone to get up when we are running late, sitting in a traffic jam somewhere, etc…….now here is a glimpse into every day life over at My French Country home. NOW,  do you see what the fuss is all about? Ahhhh, feel my blood pressure lowering already!


On top of this Sharon has so graciously decided to do a giveaway! And let me tell you its a wonderful one! As if her blog is not gift enough…….

Now wipe the drool from your chin, and take a look at what Sharon has to say:)

Where to begin, I love your idea of “therapy”, that kind of therapy I could happily engage in on a daily basis:)  Buenos Aires is indeed a very special place, have been a few times and yes to peonies, in all their many colors! And your backyard for a reunion, I cannot imagine a more beautiful place for a family reunion. I would love to meet the chateau keeper in her 80’s doing this on her own…..she sounds like one special lady! And last we cannot overestimate the sweet sensation of biting into a fresh croissant or the allure of a room done in greige, can we! Loved this and I know everyone else will too.

One word with Debra of Acquired Objects

Before I begin with my post I wanted to let you all know that Lisa, a new blogging friend who has a newer blog decided to feature me and my new store and did a brief interview. Hope you will stop over to take a peek. Its always great for a new blogger to get some love…..and I know she would be thrilled to hear from you. Click here to visit me at 16Lstreet blog to say hello after you read all about Debra!


Hi there! This morning I am delighted to have textiles dealer extraordinaire and a blog friend, Debra from Acquired Objects as my guest for One Word today. I am so happy that she is here. Debra lives in beautiful picturesque Vermont on a beautiful property and getting to see life through her eyes is always a huge treat and like a mini virtual getaway for me every time I visit her blog. Not to mention she reminds me of the joy found in the simple pleasures in life, like getting to plan her very own secret garden! She is fortunate to have her business on premise (in a beautifully restored carriage barn nonetheless)  and her things are truly spectacular. If you are not familiar with Debra and her store, Oreillers,  filled with textile treasures from the past then you must visit. I know when I am putting the finishing touches on my living room I will be taking a look at her exquisite antique pillows.

Click here to visit her store (get your bib on for the drooling that will take place)  and click here to visit her beautiful blog. Debra is someone I consider a friend and is I am sure we can all agree, is a  quality person who is supportive, kind and thoughtful. Someone who has very refined taste, a true vision and is a great supportive blog friend to many. We both have goldens, Dylan and Teddy, who could practically be long lost brothers with their “robust” frames and cheery personalities.  It was so great to get to know her better and suffice to say I am as big a fan as I ever was. Hope you too enjoy getting to know a little more about Debra. Thank you for stopping by and thank you Debra for being my guest today!

Heck yes to peonies, crunchy goodies, but sorry unlike you I do not give equal weight to potato chips and carrots, how I wish I viewed them the same way..lol!?


Fell in love with Gary Oldman as Beethoven in Immortal Beloved, his dark, moody edgy character entranced me and made me a fan for life!
