Hi there, happy Thursday evening. ! Still enjoying my time away at the beach and hope to be here off and of for another week or so. Taking a break from the sun and going to head to a local Montauk farmers market that is only here on Thursdays and maybe a little window shopping. Used to come for a good part of the summer but the reality is I have a lot to do and much going on, so all good things do come to an end but I will be back in August for a bit. It’s hard to believe July 4th has come and gone and that we are past the mid way point of summer, overall the weather has been great with very few unbearable days, plus after being in the south I have a new found appreciation for the milder weather here in NY:) So, several lobster rolls and too many fish tacos to count later, I have prepared a little random musings post which features a bit of this and a little of that. Some of you had problems looking at my southern road trip posts when my computer was having a nervous breakdown the other day, all is well so if you missed them you can click here for part 1 (Charleston), part 2 (Savannah) and part 3 (random covering Kiawah/Palmetto Bluff). Thanks as always for following along! Don’t forget my newest contest is on! “Enchanted Customers” where entrants are sending in their pictures of my products in their homes. A great chance to win $100 worth of goodies in my online shop. I am taking pictures up until July 22nd. Up to 2 pictures per person. Please mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.? Thank you for participating! Hampton’s highlights– Enjoying my time at the beach. Love my charming beach house, less than a block from the ocean, and to me, the closest thing to Nirvana is sitting on a quiet beach with only a person or two way in the distance, my beach chair, a great book and a lobster roll lunch…perfection! I have had a few of those and? they have been sublime.? In fact I am going to work on a “Tina’s travelbug” post featuring The Hamptons as I think I have mastered where to find the best lobster roll, fish taco, and more delectable treats:) A few pics taken with my iPhoone- This house dubbed “the perfect white house’ by my kids when they were little is the first house you see as you enter the uber charming town of East Hampton, it looks today as it did 25 years ago! My lonely little beach chair…just the way I like it:) Lobster roll on the beach? Y E S!!! There are lots of little “seafood shacks” like this one where you can find out of this world seafood goodies Entering East Hampton…….traffic is always a sure sign And a charming swing on the side porch makes for a great way to spend a late afternoon Love having a bench on my front porch Great mags. Have you seen the new Veranda magazine? Is it just me or is blue and white everywhere? Wow…it’s a feast for the eyes and there are some really great pictures. On top of that a friend of my sons home is featured in it! It’s a great issue, and love the outdoor spaces done by Mark D Sikes, where he used blue and white to perfection! I also think this months Traditional Home is an especially great issue! I enjoyed reading them on the deck with my favorite flavor of Perrier, pink grapefruit, have tried it? So refreshing. Speaking of great design, did you see these pictures in AD from a home in Texas that Miles Redd designed? He used a lot of color and some of the rooms were a bit much for me personally though I appreciated the “personality” they infused into the home but these two to me, were standouts. A new bed. So after having the same bed (from Julia Gray for EJ Victor) for the last 20 years, I am finally getting a new one. I really love my bed however am wanting a change and am going to go with an upholstered bed. I am excited! I have narrowed it down to a few and I know that any one of these could be a winner, any input? Of course you need to visualize each of these in a cream colored velvet which is what I am thinking for these…… Monograms. If you have been visiting me for any length of time, you know of my love for monograms. I love this site on Etsy, Magical Monograms, they make all kinds of cute monogrammed oversized stickers including this great vinyl decal for $4.00!! Great price and little extra for a personalized gift. I am going to order a few for a few birthdays coming up, great to put on the giftwrap! Click here to visit Magical Moments. Also found this on Etsy and I had to order it for my sons dorm room (we move him to college in August) sniffle sniffle 🙁 Click here to visit Kels Cozy Corner. A great wedge. Found (finally) a great looking and super comfy (most important) nude wedge that goes with just about everything. These are extremely comfortable and very good looking. Stuart Weitzman’s “Jean” wedge Shop news. By far the most exciting thing is the anticipation of receiving my tole line…all 175 pieces of it. I simply cannot wait, it is due here within the next 2 weeks and is “on the water” en route. It will take me a few days to get things unloaded,sorted and photographed but I promise you will be the first to see it! If you want to visit my shop click here. Also am working on a newly revamped site where my shop and my blog will be one. I am surprised at how often people email me that they cannot find my shop or do not know how to get to it. I realized it is not very visible on my site but that’s all going to change! It’s going to be great and I am really excited about all the changes happening “behind the scenes” and hope to share them with you in about 2 weeks. A bigger and better Enchanted Home. Promise you will really like it! Beach state of mind. Finally being in this beachy state of mind, how cute are these surfer dudes? Drum roll please…….
