Good morning, scheduled this ahead of time since I knew we were getting that monster snowstorm, so just in case we lost internet…this should still post! And here we are with round 2 and it’s another amazing collection of gorgeous pictures…not an easy decision unfortunately.

Just loving so many of these, narrowing it down to three is nearly impossible, so get those pencils sharpened. And we are off……

Speaking of voting…..if you haven’t voted for me in the JDR Industry awards where yours truly was nominated for Best Interior Design Blog, would love if you would:) It only takes 2 seconds, thank you in advance, click here to vote.

Here is a snippet of life over on this end in the last week or so……as I went through my many pictures I smiled every time I came across one from Nashville/Franklin and it was temping to include those again but that would have made this post one of the longest in history so I used restraint:) So this is from the last 2 weeks ……..

We went for a walk to a neighboring horse farm and this beauty greeted us

The backyard is finally getting green and the azaleas are in full bloom, still have to put out all my pillows and other accessories, but it’s happening, slowly but surely!

Napkins out the door, love my new stickers

This gorgeous complex is part of a HUGE marina/housing project which will service a new ferry service from Glen Cove to NYC…its going to be fabulous! The preview party was last night (husband went) and said it’s going to be amazing, we took Teddy there for a walk last Sunday

Love this custom napkin going out the door to one lucky recipient

OK this is the only Nashville pic…a reminder of how wonderfully civilized it all is there. The entire airport experience was fantastic and that is saying something. Even in the dreaded security lines..they had a waterfall wall which was so soothing and such a smart place to put it….it eased the most stressful part of the traveling experience!

Gorgeous batch of beautiful hand painted chinoiserie pillows arrived!

Awwwhhhhh….let’s all say it in unison, here is Teddy and his cousin Chloe when they were only a few months old!

Part of a local design job, this is turning out to be the most darling girls room, cannot wait to show you the finished space

Loving the newest color of my foo dogs, the turquoise…fabulous

Reorganized my stovetop with all my “essentials”

Put together a new vignette using green apples, love decorating with fruit (these are good faux never have to worry about them rotting:)

And caught my dining room late afternoon with the beautiful late day sun streaming in, my favorite time of day

So along with my bed rest from being under the weather came along a movie binge, saw some of my all time faves, cried like a hyena and laughed like a crazy person watching Steel Magnolias…one of my all time faves

Then watched Stealing Beauty, always loved this movie…the scenery literally takes your breath away and the party scene at twilight in Tuscany brought tears to my eyes, it made me so badly want to be there (yes I get emotional about beautiful things)

And then watched some amazing documentaries which I will talk about on Sunday, so made the best of feeling lousy.

A new contest and a giveaway!

Hello everyone. Hope your week is going well. Mine is busy with a good amount of work on my e design projects, my online “shopkeeping” and trying to balance it all with real life. Seriously this ridiculously cold weather has put me in total hibernation mode I think I could stay inside every day and never leave if I had a choice. Spring is going to be so liberating in more ways than one. I do not ever remember anticipating spring as much as I am this year, are you with me?

One of my great pleasures as I talk about often are the connections I make with my customers. I love when I get emails from my excited customers who are thrilled with something they have purchased from me, for their home.

That is really the best validation for what I do and why I love doing it so much. Thought it’s time for an Enchanted home Love contest…..where you can submit pictures of your beautiful homes featuring an item or item(s) that you have bought from me. A perfect time to show you how you? have showcased your new tole item, monogrammed napkins, belljars, silver or blue and whites, I could go on and on!? Just a few rules-

  • 2 pictures per person
  • Please email pictures to theenchantedhome@gmail.com and on subject line put “contest”
  • Pictures must include at least one item purchased from The Enchanted Home
  • Can be of anything or any room in your home
  • This contest starts today and I will take pictures up until March 10th
  • There is a cutoff of 60 pictures so get them in soon!
  • Contest will run March 12th and a winner will be announced on March 15th
  • The winner will win $100 towards anything in my online shop
