Hi there,  hard to believe its the weekend already…….boy this week flew! I was everywhere from the city to the Hamptons to Greenwich, CT. Busy but fun! Hope you had a wonderful and productive week. Busy weekend ahead too and its been raining like mad over here but it was nice to wake up to clearing skies!  Supposed to clear up by later today,  fingers crossed, my white pants and strappy sandals for a tony dinner party tonight and they won’t cut it in the rain (and I don’t have a backup) so fingers crossed the sun comes outπŸ™‚

Ready to hear about my random musings?  Lets go…….

A new designer. I love her style…..this first picture that I found totally got me. Christine Godfredson is one talented gal!  I am sure you can see why she had me at this first picture …exquisite, but then I looked further and it was “wow, wow and wow”… here for more Christine.

Books. I do love my books so was thrilled when   I received a wonderful book in the mail sent by Charisse from Whimsical Homes and gardens…. a newer blog and a beautiful one worth checking out! She knows I love horses and art and she being an avid horsewoman was so kind to send me this amazing book, The Horse, 30,000 years of the horse in art. It is absolutely exquisite.  So thank you Charisse and for any horse/art lover out there, I cannot recommend this highly enough and tell you just how beautiful  it is! Wonderful gift idea too…….Click here to purchase from Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Pillows for loggia. Thank you again for helping me narrow things down. I ended up ordering two groupings…and will surprise you! I will try both groupings and whichever one I don’t use will be used for our main patio. I am so excited! If you missed that post, click here….

Roberta Roller- Roberta Freyman. I have spoken of this label before. Love their prints, to me they scream coastal chic living. I love the robes and lounge clothes and fun tunics that can be dressed up or down. The colors just make me happy! When I was in East Hampton a few days ago, I picked up a few goodies.   Click here to see more…..

i Phone Apps. This is an area where I am a total “newb” (as my kids like to refer to it). But thanks to my trusty friend, Kate of Preppy empty nester, she gave me the lowdown on all the apps to have to be one of the “cool kids”. (I can see my kids eyes rolling now). But seriously there are some amazing apps here!! This was so worth sharing….you have to see it! Here is one example….but click here to see all of them (so worth the read).


How many times do you hear a song on the radio and wonder what it is?  Well, there’s an app for that …and it’s called Shazam!  Just hold  your phone up to the radio, press Shazam…and you’ll have the song and artist info in seconds. Then you can purchase the tune on iTunes or check out the concert schedule for that artist (that’s how I found out about JT’s NYC concert schedule…and yes, I’m going!!!)  

Note… “JT” refers to Justin Timberlake and not my favorite, James Taylor. Guess Dude wants to win the award for “most senior audience member!”


Hamptons! One of my favorite places (especially when its not busy and off season)! A good friend and I went for the day and had such a great time. Any day that starts with the best fish tacos is a good day in my book. If ever out that way, you must must try Bostwicks, best fish tacos ever! Here are a few highlights of my day including several pictures of the amazing Restoration Hardware Store in East Hampton, must say they looked exceptional!

Loved the overflowing white hydrangeas in front of the super charming Ralph Lauren store in EH

Every corner has something beautiful to marvel at…..
And check out how good Restoration Hardware in East Hampton looked…….

Loved the antique mirrored panels in the elevator…..

                                                    Yep it’s official…love the Hamptons as much as ever!

 Shop news. These are the two new oversized jars that were made for Ralph Lauren himself! I snagged 10 of each and let me tell you they are gorgeous with a capital G!  Click here to visit them at my online shop…..

Also very excited, finally after waiting months and months am getting back in the gorgeous chargers, getting in 75 pieces. So if you were one of the ones waiting, email me to reserve them. Truly gorgeous for any table. They are due here next week along with all these beauties…….

Speaking of my online shop..calling all enchanted customers! I want pictures for my online gallery……..please send a few of your beautiful homes/rooms featuring products you have bought from me. Here are some recent ones, the first is one from a customer all the way in gorgeous they all are! Email me here with your images so I can add them to my online gallery:)

A wonderful giveaway. Surely you know Betty Lou Phillips! I have every single one of her books and unlike so many design books, hers deliver on every single page! I go back to her books often and reference all kinds of things from beautiful window treatment details to flooring and lighting ideas, she is a true master! Her books literally are like a gift that keeps on giving, can’t say that about too many design books!  Betty Lou is a super duper talented designer heavy on the French accents, which is her trademark and suffice to say,  I am big fan.

I was soooo excited to receive a copy of her latest accomplishment, Interiors by Design. In this wonderful new book/file folder she covers endless design subjects and includes hundreds of photos as well as wonderful “insider” design tips. It’s like having a top designer as your best friend!

And she was generous enough to include a second one as a giveaway. How great is that? This is chock full of all the ‘insiders” information that everyone could want to possibly know. I mean seriously just check out these droolworthy images, tell me who wouldn’t want advice from someone with this much talent!! Click here to visit her site and learn more about this talented dynamo.

So how to win? Easy! Just leave a comment here, and I will announce a lucky winner on Wednesday morning. Remember anonymous readers you must include a first name and last name intial in the body of the comment. Good luck!

Well that’s a wrap! Hope whatever you are doing for the weekend is wonderful and relaxing. We have a fancy schmancy dinner party tonight and a few games,  so it should be fun, not to mention I am knee deep in a few organization projects in my house…..making dents but have a ways to go. Wishing you a wonderful day and a fabulous summer weekend. Hard to believe summer is finally here…woo hoo!

Tina it sounds like you had a busy but fabulous week! Lots of fun and beautiful photos in the Hamptons. The fish tacos look delicious and I do not eat fish.

I love, love love that photo of the blue and white on the outdoor table and I am excited to see all of your pillow selections. They were all so beautiful that you can not go wrong with any of them.

I love Betty Lou Phillips! In fact I just read a blog post by Tish Jett about her tonight, they are friends from way back and had lunch recently in Paris.

I hope that you have a fabulous time at your party and games. Hopefully the storm will pass and you will see blue skies.

Thank you for the beautiful “eye candy” before I go off to sleep, surely I will have pleasant dreams now.

Oh My Goodness! How have I not found you before! I LOVE your site and I’ve not even covered it all yet! My morning is now reserved for all the catching up I feel I must do. So many dreamy things and I have even GOTTEN to your store yet. I want to step inside so many of your pictures, just like in Mary Poppins, and meander around to see all the sights. Thank you for being here. I will be a regular ‘checker-backer’! – Debra Cassel Petronella

Good morning beautiful Tina! I WAS JUST at Restoration Hardware yesterday and saw all these glorious things you shared! Love their neutrals. OK, fish tacos, the best thing us Mexicans have contributed to the culinary scene! LOVE THEM. And though I’ve never been to the Hamptons, I am guessing that my 11 year experience in New England is similar, and it is unforgettable.

We too have been contending with rain and gloomy skies, but the sun is actually peeking out now.

Sending you wishes for a wonderful weekend, get your pillows out on the loggia, and BREATHE IT ALL IN, LOVE IT ALL OUT….Anita

I am the biggest fan of Betty Lou’s designs and, like you, have all of her books….can’t wait to see the goodies in this one from an amazing takent! Isn’t Roberta Roller Rabbit the best?

I love all of Betty Lou’s designs. It would be wonderful to win her book! I’m needing to redo an office – and want it more than an ‘office’ – so looking for some great ‘detail tips,’ along the ‘French line’ that I could incorporate! As always, I enjoy all of your photos and am anxious to see your loggia all decked out in blue and white pillows – they are wonderful!

What a great post today. And Betty Lou Phillips’ book looks wonderful. Would be a great addition to my “home” books.

Martha E. Mercer on

Tina, I start each morning with a mug of coffee and my laptop. I go straight to The Enchanted Home for my “fix”. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your beautiful blog. I do not have a single Betty Lou Phillips book but would love to own one. Our local newspaper had a very nice
article on Betty Lou (in the home/decor section) this morning.

Lois on

Great post and I think that book looks wonderful! I’d love I win it! And a trip to the Hamptons πŸ™‚

Leslie on

Hi Tina! Great post! First.. love Christine’s design aesthetic. I’ve never heard of her. I’ll head over to visit her after I finish this! I just love the blue and white and dark wood .. gorgeous combination. Always enjoy the images from your home and all your new shop talk. I’ve never been to the Hamptons but it’s on my bucket list as places to visit. The fish taco spot you found looks great as does the RH (one of my favorite shops!)

Enjoy your weekend and hopefully the rain will stop. If you keep wearing the white pants and sandals maybe mother nature will get the hint:)?

So, so fabulous. Is it normal to salivate while looking at photos of gorgeous rooms? No one ever accused me of being normal! Stunning post today (as usual), Tina.

Happy Saturday Tina,
Love your random post and you introduced me to a new designer, always love finding new designers to read about!! We just had fish tacos here the other night, we love them. We like to go to Half Moon Bay here in Calif. to the Flying Fish to get them when we are visiting the ocean. Someday I am going to make it to the Hamptons and I will be trying fish tacos!!
Great giveaway, would love another design book to add to my collection, one can never have enough design books!!

Stumbled upon your blog last week for the first time and was truly intrigued by it! Love all the pics! I was browsing today for French inspired decor books and just purchased French by Design by Betty Lou Phillips. Can’t wait to get it. Popped over to your blog and here you are giving one away!! Your site has inspired me to decorate with “French” flare when we build our house next year! Donna B.

Good morning Tina! What a beautiful post you have today, as always!. Hope the clear skies hold up for you today. I am a little envious and would love some cooler weather here in Nevada as it is 110 degrees all weekend. The heat is here now to stay for at least 3 months. Your beautiful blog is the one thing I read every morning with my coffee even on those busy mornings as I am rushing to get out the door to work. It always gives me a jump start to my day and puts a smile on my face. Betty Lou Philips’ book is beautiful,I would love to add it to my collection.

I cannot wait to see the pillows you have chosen. They were all wonderful!! You have such great taste for decorating and make it look so easy. I love Betty Lou Philips. Her work is beautiful.

What a busy life! The pillows are going to be awesome. With the selection you had to choose from it’s a win/win. Love Betty Lou Philips! Have you seen her NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS IN PARIS? It is adorable and was my gift to some of my girlfriends this past Christmas.
Would love a copy of her latest book. Thanks for sharing the “weekend ramblings” with all these pretty images. Love that first one!
Hope your evening is dry and you get to look gorgeous in your white pants and cute sandals. ‘-)

While talking about decorating books, the thought crossed my mind that many of us would LOVE to purchase a decorating book written by YOU!!!! Realize you are one super busy lady but a book might be something to add to future projects along with that play you have in mind!!!

Hi Tina, I so enjoy reading your blog, it has given me something to look forward to as I am home from having hip surgery, so one rainy afternoon here in Chicago, I read thru all of your postings, so interesting, and what a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. I am back to work next week, but plan on always finding time to read the blog, you are so talented, and it feels like I have found a new friend. I have several books by Betty Lou Phillips, I so enjoy her design style, I would love to have her new book.

Hi Tina – I hope you had fun at your big party last night…at least the weather cooperated!

Enjoy this glorious day!!! xoxo

Tina- you never cease to amaze and inspire me. There is so much to take in her! I love Betty Lou Phillips books too and so agree that page for page they are one of the better design books. I have also given them as gifts.

Love the blue and white pictures above too. The clothing looks so soft and comfortable, I love anything cotton. Hope you had a nice time at your party, here we have hit 90 degrees 3 days straight and summer has just begun.

Being near the ocean we make fish tacos a lot, and its one of my favorite guilt free meals, the Restoration Hardware store looks fantastic, I think they look better than ever.

Have a nice Sunday!

Hi Tina, I’ve been blog hopping this afternoon and have no idea whose blog I got to your from, but I’m ever so glad I did. I love everything about this post but especially the restoration hardware photos. That is one great store. We have one in Vancouver but we don’t have one in my other home Oxford UK. Oh well, that furniture probably wouldn’t work in our English cottage. I’m off now to read some more of your posts. πŸ™‚

Dear Tina, it was my pleasure to send you the book, although I know you might have preferred a live example of equine art! Enjoying this post after returning from a trip…..lots of terrific eye candy, especially in my favorite blue and white. Betty Lou Phillips… I have one of her books and would enjoy winning her newest one. What a nice giveaway. I forgot to comment on your pillows, but I love that you chose a large variety. I myself would have had difficulty narrowing it down much as all of them are beautiful and would coordinate well with each other. Can one really have too many blue and white pillows? Can’t wait to see them on your loggia and porch.

Betty Lou speaks to a part of my soul that revels in beauty and inspiration! I first fell in love with her aesthetic in design when her granddaughters’ bedroom suite was published in a major magazine, many years back. She captured my own longings with her style and heart. Since then, she is at the top of my list, and I keep her books close by. I would so love to have her new book. I LEARN from her. πŸ™‚ And in all honesty….of all the blogs I receive, I am the most excited to see what you present each day.

I have French Impressions which just seemed to touch my decorating inspirations. The addition of black really makes the blue and white pop. While it is a great combination I feel it lacks definition at times. Like all your other readers the new Betty Lou Phillips book would be something to win. Best wishes.

It is so wonderful to see the true love and passion all these photos behold!
Nothing wins over time and space as great design. It embodies a families passage of time together and it welcomes the weary worker home every night!

I so enjoy reading your posts and just cannot say which home I loved more!

One would have to pick out of a fishbowl and be happy with any of these gracious lovely homes!

Brava to you, for sharing such wonderful taste and style..
