Hello there, and happy Thursday.  What’s on your agenda for Memorial Day? Hope the weather forecast is going to be a good one. Here, it looks to be fair,  not as warm as it has been earlier in the week, but clear skies except for Saturday, so I am not complaining one bit!

We were due to go away to Newport but now with my sons team in the playoffs and having mandatory practice, that plan may be changing. We have a few backup plans in case so we will see and hopefully will fit in  some downtime just “hanging”.

As with my weekly musings posts, this one is a bit all over and fairly lengthy so lets get started…….

Mr. Teddy wishing you a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend! See him sporting his Amercian flag bandanna…….just got back from a grooming.

Beautiful  pictures from my fellow blue and white loving blog friends!  Julio strikes again, recently posted on his gorgeous back patio for his first dinner party, and it is seriously stunning! Take a look……..loving all that blue and white:) Click here to see more from Beaux Monde Designs.

Speaking of blue and white and gorgeous, check out Mary Ann’s friends dinner party also with beautiful touches of blue and white. Click here to see more from Classic Casual Home……..

Incredible story! Found this story totally inspiring and the pictures spellbinding! Tippi,  a young girl born to French wildlife photographers who has grown up in the African desert claims many of the wildlife to be her best friends, this is totally fascinating and the pictures just incredible! Click here to read/see more.

Gorgeous wedding.…..proof that it really is all in the details and these snippets are so beautiful! This wedding is sooooo chic, beautiful, elegant and tasteful! Click here to see all the details from Let the tide pull your dreams ashore…….

Shoes! Have to get these shoes. I could see these with a beautiful creamy colored dress/sheath or something lacey for the summer….LOVE these! Gorgeous in the baby blue too…..

My house. Just a few random pictures I took recently and I am  loving my newest planter from my statuary line. And check it out with the newly added hydrangea and ivy. Winning combination!

And me newest urn on pedastal….tah dah! (This item is on my line shop now)

Late day sun…my favorite time of day.

Smelling good. I love a soft and light summer scent for the warmer months ahead. I am a big fan of Jo Malone for her beautiful scents and staying power. I recently bought the English pair and freesia and love it, its very soft and perfect for summer!

Food. Yes, by now you know I love this subject and always have to include something yummy in these random posts. These look soooo good and so refreshing for a summer appetizer. I will be making these for sure, visit the Cookin Canuck for the how to…….

Shop news. Some new beautiful additions to silver and the Staffordshire dogs in all their many colors and sizes are now up for those who asked. Click here to visit the shop…….

And to anyone who had wanted this wonderful best selling bag that was sold out, I just got three more…..

Well, everyone that about wraps it up for this week. Hope whatever you are doing for the holiday weekend is wonderful, relaxing and safe. Here the weather is due to get much cooler but after hitting 85 the other day, the 60’s are quite welcome. I don’t need the extremes and certainly not the dreadful humidity! I likely won’t be back during the weekend but will see you on Monday! Happy holiday weekend,  enjoy and thanks as always for stopping in!

PS Per several requests..heres the link to the shoes above! Sorry, forgot to include it when this posted!

Good morning most beautiful friend! MR. TEDDY LOOKS SO HAPPY! Give him a good pat for me, will ya? teehee

That photo with the outdoor entertainment center and the black and white awnings is one of my favorites, Tina. So elegant, peaceful and classic for sure. And your new URN AND PEDESTAL! YES! The grays and whites with your stone is the perfect match.

We too are having incessant rain with cold. But today the sun is shining and I’m taking advantage of that by going out to clean one more spot in my garden.

Sending you fond wishes for a safe and lovely weekend! Anita

I love that Jo Malone fragrance. I almost wore it for our wedding!

Hi Tina, you never disappoint with these random posts. How fun to see Teddy, he is so cute. Reminds me so much of our Riley. Your patio- left my jaw on the floor! So magnificent and love the new urn filled with hydrangeas.
That wedding was beautiful and love all the new things especially the silver for your shop. Have a nice holiday weekend.

Awwww, Teddy is just GORGEOUS! I hope that no matter what your plans for the weekend, you and your family have a lovely time!

Teddy looks so handsome in his patriotic bandana!

Love the pictures of your house, just spectacular. That urn with the white hydrangeas and ivy is so pretty, Tina.

That Tipi is so cute, what a fascinating story. Thanks for sharing, I think my daugher would get a kick out of it too. And that crostini recipe looks so good, perfect for lighter eating during the summer.

Hope you have a nice holiday weekend. We are off to Greece for my nieces wedding on Saturday!

Awww, what is better than seeing Teddy looking so happy and handsome?! It’s lovely to see you featuring Erin’s wedding, she was a beautiful bride. And Jo Malone, who doesn’t love a little (or a lot!) of their goodies?

Sending you a smile and hopes your holiday is fabulous.

Teddy looks handsome and I hope he stays cleaner then Dylan. Dylan had a bubble bath Thursday and twenty minutes after arriving home he was upside down in mud trying to get the “stink” off him. Ya gotta love dogs!

That little girl is after my own heart with her beastly friends…how cute. I hope you have a wonderful weekend Tina, be safe!


Leslie on

Teddy is so cute Tina:):) LOVE those sandals! You MUST get the blue ones;) Okay, your house and the new items for your shop .. love everything, and I recently picked up a couple more pieces from you. Can’t wait to get them. Can we ever have too many blue and white pieces?! Sounds like you’ve been really busy. Hopefully you will get some down-time this weekend. I’m looking forward to enjoying a long weekend to tackle some house projects. xxL

Good morning Tina,

Teddy is adorable and looking spiffy for the holiday weekend. I cannot wait to go check out that little girl and her African friends, gorgeous photos.

The brie and strawberries on French bread looks scrumptious! And as always your house and store offerings looks beautiful!

Enjoy your weekend! Be safe and have fun.

The urn is so beautiful! Love the flowers too. Don’t you wish it could stay like that all year long?

Have a great weekend Tina!

Hi Tina…Happy “almost” Memorial Day weekend! I am excited to have two of my three children home for the weekend – I just wish the weather would be better.

Hi Tina- Teddy is such a little cutie! All of the pictures on this post are awesome, I love everything and got so much inspiration. If I owned a patio like yours I think I would literally sleep out there, its so pretty and love that new planter.

The story about Tippy I had read about not long ago and I also found it so fascinating, she is like a modern day Jane, she is so cute and fearless.

Hope you have a really nice holiday weekend. Enjoy your time off.

Tina…love all these stories…especially about the little girl Tippy…what an amazing childhood…have a great holiday weekend…

I know that you have to pinch yourself when you walk through your home. Just gorgeous.
Love the awnings, and isn’t Mary Ann’s table gorgeous too?
Love the foo dogs!
Have a great weekend, and hug Teddy for me!

Hello Ms. Enchanted,

I am with Teresa – you must be pinching yourself all day long!!!

Mary Ann sure knows a thing or two about lovely tabletop decor! (As do you!).

Happy Memorial weekend to you and your family.

Hugs from Miles to Teddy.

Thank you Tina, for coming to visit. NEXT YEAR, we are going again to France, but I’m going to take a survey to find out where out next destination should be…England? All of Europe? The States?

You are always welcomed to join in on the parties; they are truly a memorable experience of connecting, no matter WHAT the destination! Much love, Anita

Thanks for catching us up! Teddy looks so adorable with his cute little bandanna….what a cutie pie :o) Happy Memorial Day….have a great weekend!!!

Splendid Market on

So much beauty here, but it is the shots of Tippi in Africa that really warmed my heart. Well, and those gorgeous baby blue shoes, wouldn’t they look great with rolled up jeans? Okay, okay, and anything Jo Malone stirs me, especially freesia, my favorite scent, must try that one. And your your house is always dreamy. That outdoor living space takes me away as well. Oh, and the dog, so sweet, thank goodness for our loyal friends. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Good luck to the kids.

I LOVE those black and white striped awnings…soooo classic πŸ™‚

please tell us where to purchase the blue and white dinner plates shown in the Beaux Mondes feature. Thanks!!!


Way too much “pretty” here to digest!!! Love how you always have gorgeous flower arrangements all over your home. And those shoes are totally yummy!

Debby Steele on

Ha Ha Teddy.. Such a ham! I could live in that outdoor area of yours!!!!! So beautiful. When are you going to publish your home into a book?! Bestseller!!!!

Funny, I have a Jo Malone perfume. To me it doesn’t keep it’s smell – I’m wondering if it’s just that particular scent since you have had good luck w/ her fragrances. They all smell so good. xo

Hi Tina, always fun to read through your musings. Of course the house pictures are always my favorite. Wow! Love the blue and white inspired wedding, reminds me of one we attended last year for my niece, makes a great color scheme for a wedding.
Teddy is so cute, what a face. Hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend. 80’s here! We are off for a picnic on our boat.

Ahmad khodr on

Enjoy, relax and maybe have a small treat…or glass of wine to celebrate family and friends.

If you want a classic casual home than firstly think about that what are the likes and dislikes of you and your family. You make a list of that and discuss about it with your Los Angeles certified home inspector for proper guidance.
