Hi just a pop in to say hello….I will be out of town for the next few days but do have an exciting? post scheduled for tomorrow as well as a wonderful giveaway you will not want to miss. Hope your week is going well…..

For all who asked, no my Pet Love Contest has not happened, but it will in a few weeks.? I more than reached my maximum of pictures so unfortunately cannot take any more submissions, stay tuned, you will LOVE the “contestants’!

Ready to get started with my randomness? Let’s go……….



MY NEW SOFA!? After a looooong wait, I got the gorgeous new EJ Victor sofa for my living room. Love it, its done in a cream raw silk (but upholstery weight) and we did tonal pillows as I will have pillows made eventually from the fabric I choose for the eventual chairs but in the meantime the blue pillows look gorgeous on it. Love the detailing on the bouillon fringe/tape and this is such a comfortable sofa..its down filled and fabulous, worth the wait.

GORGEOUS CUSTOM ARTWORK. I always talk about how awestruck I am by anyone who has been given the amazing gift of being a naturally gifted artist. Jeanne from I Dream Of is one such talent. Her work just bowls me over every time! I have worked with her a few times and each time was just mesmerized by the result. I love the beautiful gingers jars I commissioned her to draw and she took it one step further and sent me the most wonderful surprise!!

Imagine how excited I was to open this pretty package! She had the art matted and ready to be framed and included some wonderful ginger jar gift tags….LOVE IT ALL! These are now a focal point of inspiration as I work on a new office for myself this summer.? Thanks Jeanne….if you have a project in your future, you must consider uber talented Jeanne. Click here to visit her at her blog, I Dream Of where you can also find her contact information.

?AN AMAZING TIME LAPSE VIDEO. I found this on Pinterest and must say I was immediately intrigued, what a phenomenal idea. I sure wish I had the foresight to do this with my own kids… what an amazing keepsake of your child growing up!

Here is an excerpt about this video-

An?incredible 14 years in the making, this viral video?shows?Lotte Hofmeester grow from a baby to a beautiful teen in a mere 4 minutes and five seconds.

Lotte’s father,?Frans?Hofmeester, started taking video of his daughter as soon as she was born on?October 28, 1999. “She was changing at such a rapid pace, that I felt the need to document the way she looked, to keep my memories intact,” he writes on his website.?

The result of his perseverence is this?gorgeous tribute to the first 14 years of his daughter’s life, and a heartbreaking?expression of the common experience of all parents who watch their children grow from infants into adults right before their eyes.


?SPRING IS HERE. Finally despite getting a dusting of snow last night (no I am not kidding) I have for the first time seen buds!! Woo hoo this is indeed big news, it means spring is really here and it never felt so good!! Ever so slowly things are starting to bloom and the grass and trees are just starting to turn their beautiful bright green…….

I always enjoy your random musings! Jeanne’s artwork is amazing…I am trying to think of something I can commission from her because I love her work! Isn’t it nice to see a few signs of spring? (even though it snowed here yesterday…arggh) The mom video had me in tears…it is SO true! Have a lovely day and enjoy your weekend away! xoxo

Tina flipping over your new sofa! Wow it is so beautiful and elegant, I think the pillow arrangement looks perfect. Over here everything is in full bloom and I agree it is nice to welcome a new and milder season.

The artwork is so lovely and both of the videos are incredible. I am going to share them with my family and friends. Love your new items particularly the vintage looking silver serving pieces, just beautiful.

Have a nice time off.

Gorgeous Tina, your new silk sofa is splendid. It so highlights all the golds and blues that make your home so chic and majestic! And you finally have spring! NOT US! We got 4 inches of snow yesterday, but I HAVE HOPE! And the gifts you received, oh how glorious! All is right, for you have friends who know your taste and have blessed you with their talents.

I will come back for your next post, that is for sure! Love, Anita

Tina, you are so sweet. Thank you so much for the kind shout out! I’m thrilled that you were so happy with the little extras I tucked in with your art work. It’s always so much fun to work with someone who you share a point of view with – I’ve so enjoyed our collaborations. Happy spring and safe travels this weekend! XOXO

Thank you for sharing more photos of your lovely home. Your sofa is absolutely beautiful!! My mom finally bought a sofa and two matched chairs in silk velvet from Henredon, and she loves them. I am positive you will love your new sofa just as much. Thank you for letting us know about your Steals and Deals coming next week. I think I will have to make another purchase as the purchase I made a few weeks ago will be given to my brother for his birthday! He will love it.
