Hi there,? we are having the most beautiful weekend, sunny bright skies, low humidity, moderate temps….who? could ask for more!? What did we do before we had our cell phones? I am way more attached to mine than I would care to admit…how about you?

I like to share highlights of my days/weekends? every now and then as seen through the miracle of my i Phone camera, sometimes I am amazed at the pictures it churns out. So not much narration needed here, but on we go, a few highlights from this weekend and last……


1. LOVE me a good farm stand. I get all giddy when I see one, and when they are brimming with fresh fruits and vegetables I am like a kid in a candy shop…… this fresh just picked produce? just not beautiful!

2. My Chiang Mai pillows from Studio Tullia...I have an addiction. Last year bought them for my loggia furniture but this year am expanding to add them to my? patio furniture as well, love mixing and matching, they are just exquisite period! Call me addicted……..

3. Remnants of last weekends gradutation party……I loved having the furniture still on my patio days after the party, it allowed me to hold onto the memory just a little longer and my flowers held up surprisingly well too. Best part about a party? LEFTOVERS of course!

4. A few Instagram pics I took with my trust little iPhone (click here to see my Instagram or follow me)……

5. Attended a sweet baby shower at this darling restaurant in NYC, Mara Vanna, the pictures are kind of dark but its a really cute restaurant, super girly with crystal chandeliers everywhere.

7. New topiaries planted into my planters (these are technically a little small and not the permanent ones but I do like them a lot so they have stuck around a little longer than expected). Had these topiaries planted and loved the effect….

So that sums up what is new here. Tonight? we are headed into the city to celebrate my husbands birthday,? tomorrow night headed to a birthday party for a friend, so a fun, busy summer weekend! My husband might I add will not miss a single game from The World Cup so all of this centers around the games but it’s his birthday weekend so he gets a free pass!

Enjoy yours and thank you as always for stopping in, I will be back possibly Monday otherwise for sure on Tuesday, have a very busy start to the week:)

Love these outtakes! You are very good with that iPhone camera, Tina. My fave pic is of sweet Teddy. Have a wonderful weekend celebrating your Mister’s bday!

Oh my gosh so much to love here, Tina. Your patio, party highlights, pillows, love it ALL. Teddy is such a handsome fella and I must have a dough bowl, I just emailed you, they are beautiful. Happy birthday to your hubs, hope you have fun. Loved these highlights.

TINA! You too? You out there are having the same perfect weather as us?We have paid our dues in the worst winter weather and then recently, the worst spring storms. Today was perfect and I am smiling to see your gorgeous loggia all spruced up for summer. But the real smile maker is that dear TEDDY of yours! teehee…he is loving the water, and the color of your pool speaks SUMMER!

I will wait on the purchase of the bowl until your next shipment. I want to give someone else a chance (since I have to wait to get paid!) for one of these beauties!

Everything is looking delicious here! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, beautiful Tina! Anita

The party photos were stunning. What a lovely setting. I was thinking about your hydrangea table display this morning while trimming all my hydrangea bushes which are overgrown already.

I love sending you pillows because I get to see them at your home in all their glory. They look so nice with all your blue and white vases, flowers, topiary….it’s all those lovely details that make your home so beautiful.

Thanks for sharing,

Wow, you take great pics with your i phone, those fruits and veggies look delicious! I love the pillows, and the entire outdoor space, actually the topiaries look great too! You have great taste! I love the dough bowls, I actually have one, but it was dropped and broke in half, I just can’t get rid of it, I am so sentimental. Happy Birthday to your husband, GO USA!, sounds like y’all have a fun weekend planned. Looking forward to your next post πŸ™‚ Debbie

Hello Tina

Its hard to say which is my favourite picture, Teddy or Topiaries :))
( I spied them in the background of your party photos they are delectable…)

Hoping you have a lovely weekend, and happy birthday to your hubs…hope you enjoy the World Cup. Over here it is such a huge thing, although England are sadly out…I still love all the energy and passion of Brazil, the bossa nova mas que nada!!
Have fun xx

Hi Tina WOW may I say your blog this morning on this side of the world is a feast for the eye. Beautiful photography. Thank you for sharing. Regards Esther from Sydney. PS love Mr. Teddy.

Those tomatoes look delicious and so do the grad left overs. Can I ask you a question on your white patio cushions? How do you keep them so clean? have you sprayed them with anything that helps if rain gets on them? Have a great weekend.

What is more beautiful than the colors and tastes of fresh summer vegetables and fruits! Your home is ready for the easy entertaining of summer. You’ve done a fantastic job of creating a warm and inviting outdoor space. Hope your summer is filled with lots of family and friend seem to be your happiest when planning and entertaining! Enjoy! Thanks for the beautiful photos!

green with envy for that heirloom tomato salad on the plate with…cheese? that is not fair. also the pooch in the pool. is this for real? he takes leisurely dips as he pleases? i think i need a pool. have an awesome weekend partying!! last night an incredible banquet at the club with the best smoked salmon i have ever tasted and one of the golfers who had prob been drinking for 12 hours hit on me mercilessly in front of our spouses to the point tears of laughter were streaming down my cheeks. more laughing til my cheeks ached tonight with friends who tickle my brain with every nutty thought. let’s keep this going, deal?

Still fabulous as always and you’ve really grown your business. Love the new layout of your blog too! I’m off to search through older postings.


Your iphone pictures are amazing of the fruits and veges, wow such art!
I love seeing Mr. Teddy and of course your home blows me away, that patio is amazing, Tina. I love all the blue and white accents, you have me looking at it in a whole new way. Thank you for sharing, that baby shower looks like so much fun too.

Beautiful post. I am interested in one of the longer thinner dough bowls. But I didn’t see them listed individually.
Also, your old posts pop up on my blog roll but not the new posts. (but the new ones show up in my email.)

I LUV the “after “graduation pictures and the baby shower pictures you were kind enough to share with me. I truely enjoyed the pictures of your son’s graduation party. I noticed your son’s name, that was with his picture that you put at each table settings. My grandson’s name is Brannon- “no d ” – ( a family name ). It was fascinating looking at the pictures of how you selected and arranged the beautiful flowers for the tables. I also enjoyed looking at the finish decorating effort of the table settings. Loved the clear chairs that you selected at the tables. Looked very elegant. And lastly, the food looked delectable! You gave your son a wonderful graduation party and you gave us a special gift of sharing pictures of it with your friends and readers. Thank You πŸ™‚
