A winner is crowned and a fabulous new giveaway!

Hi and happy Sunday, notice my new banner for December? This is the one you chose but I will have this one up half of Dec. and the other one that was a neck in neck tie for the second half of December! Don’t know about you…..but? I am still recuperating from the Thanksgiving feast at the beach, worth every bite and calorie! Only bad thing about going away for Thanksgiving is there are no leftovers and we all know that is a pretty awesome perk, right? On the other hand, maybe its a blessing in disguise:)

I am looking forward to half of a lazy Sunday today, we are invited to someones house for dinner tonight but I actually plan on getting up to the attic and want to start sorting and “take inventory” of all the Christmas decor I have to see what needs to be replenished and what will work. I normally end up having way more than I realized…how about you, have you started to decorate yet? Hard to believe it’s December 1st, the countdown is on and in full swing…..going to be one crazy busy month!

So first things first…a very lucky winner of the gorgeous pair of Seda France pillows! Congratulations goes to…..

Result:

31

Thanks for introducing me to Seda France … I had no idea what I was missing! The double wick Jardin candle is so beautiful; I am ordering the ‘Holiday’ and ‘Currant Pourpre’ right now. And, those perfect Pagoda pillows, in brown, would make my heart sing!
Best,
Debbie Lane

Now onto this wonderful award bestowed upon me…..The blog on fire award!

I was so happy and honored to receive this wonderful blog award from not one but TWO   friends, Debra from Acquired Objects and Teresa of the lovely Splendid Sass. A little about these two fabulous blogs.…Acquired Objects, a beautiful blog showcasing Debra’s fabulous taste, elegant Vermont abode, mouth watering antique textiles and her penchant for all things beautiful and then there is  Splendid Sass, which features the most beautiful heavenly interiors, uber talented designers and their work, and she always sprinkles her blog with a devine recipe! Of course their infectious, warm personalities shine through loud and clear! Thank you Teresa and Debra. I am so lucky to count you both as friends. Part of accepting this award is telling five things about myself and then passing along to five other bloggers…..so here we go!

1. I am SEVERELY claustrophobic, even looking at an elevator makes me shake, I kid you not. Happened 20 something years ago when I was 8 months pregnant living in NYC, and went to visit someone and rode the elevator from hell. Alone, no phone, with a totally possessed elevator which resulted in a permanent condition of severe claustrophobia! The good news I always take the stairs no exceptions wherever we are…..including having walked up to the Rainbow Room at the top of Rockefeller center!!

2. I am such a kid at heart, I love seeing the world through kids eyes…..still have to admit I get excited over visiting Disney, walking through magical Epcot and the Magic Kingdom, unlike most who get exhausted, being there in that magical venue just revs me up and gives me a new dose of youthful energy!!  I think at this point in the game, my kids are way over Disney so I guess I will likely have to wait for grandkids….argh!

3. I cry over Johnsons baby commercials, Disney, Hallmark and even over some of the diaper commercials. Think its a combination of looking back, quite fondly on a time that will never be again (when my kids were really young) and just thinking back to that precious innocent time when the mere mention of Disney world or a new toy would mean wide eager eyes, a smile a mile wide and the biggest bear hug one could hope for! Now I get grunts from my Chinese rapping son who makes an occasional appearance from his “crib” upstairs. (actually hes a beyond polite boy but the Chinese speaking rapper still applies…lol)

4. That I really think I will want to move out to the country one day and fulfill a lifelong dream to plant a mega garden, herbs, vegetable, fruit, floral you name it! Grow my own olives and bottle my own olive oil, a few fig trees, a tomato garden to rival all tomato gardens. You get the picture! And have a few horses, cows and chickens. Maybe even open a small restaurant on the property, always dreamt of building a small quaint but charmingly elegant restaurant that only seats 12 or 14 right in the middle of the crop fields! Wouldnt’ that be neat? Will you come and be my guest? I promise I will also have one heck of a gorgeous guest room waiting!

5. I know I am mildly OCD, and have many obsesssions!  You now know my penchant for even numbers, to the point where when I get gas I must like to stop on an even number! One other such obsession is my obsession with apres ski wear.  I LOVE Gorsuch. Do you know of them? I seriously NEVER throw one of their catalogs away…they have the most beautiful things! One look a their amazing offerings online or their catalog, and you will “get it”. And those “other things”, well when I discovered a BLT sandwich I ate them every day for a month, current obsessions are with coffee, Hermes anything (those two have been long time) , cozy pj’s, anything equestrian(not a new obsession always loved it), velvet chairs,sofas and ottomans, the colors gray and camel together, white marble anywhere, copper pots, urns of all sizes preferably a little aged, moving into my house, anything old and French, the palest blue/gray color palette in a room, chunky gold charm bracelets, and taking an amazing vacation sometime soon!

There…that’s a bunch of random facts about me, don’t you think! Now for the second part…passing it along. I have SO many blogging friends who are SO deserving of this award, but this time around I am handing it out to someone who A. I have never awarded before and B. someone who is a little newer (at least to me) and C. someone whose blog I really love and anticipate visiting!  So (in no particular order) congratulations to……..(Please click on each one to visit, they are all wonderful treats and I promise if you don’t know of them already you will be happy you do now)!

Foyer fabulosity Part II

Good morning……hope all is well. I must say I am not making much of an effort to get to Target as I am not hearing such great things about this highly touted Calypso line, so when I get there,I get there, but it sounds underwhelming at best. Anyone like it out there? I am going to be taking some pictures at the house today, bathrooms are moving along fast and furious so there with will plenty of bathroom pics, and beams are being chopped and antiqued which is kind of fascinating to watch so will get that too. Stairs is being installed and I must say its coming along beautifully, everyone on the site is amazed at the staircase, its like a work of art, they are amazed at the curve and the workmanship. I will share picture updates tomorrow. 

As promised earlier, here is part II of my foyer fabulosity post. Foyers make the first and hopefully a lasting statement about the feeling and personality of your home. Whether your look is casually rustic, charmingly coastal, minimalist modern or elegantly traditional, the accessories, pieces of furniture, lighting and flooring you choose in your foyer sets the tone for what is to come. You can choose to keep it low key and minimalist or go all out for a serious wow factor. It is an easy room to infuse your own personality or taste into….so have fun with it. Here is a continuation of more glorious foyers, each with its own distinct personality and style…….each very beautiful. What is your style? Do you have any tried and true tips that you like to infuse into a foyer? Do you have a favorite here?

Love the light, the colors, the elegance…. perfection! Southern Accents
So….you know I love to know what you think and if you have a favorite! What do you think is a winning combination when decorating a foyer? Do tell……. Hope you have an enchanting day!
