Hi, and happy Saturday to you. Sorry for the slight delay,? was having some technical difficulties this morning. First off time to announce the lucky winner of my Enchanted home contest. With nearly 1200 votes (thank you)! I am delighted to announce the winner of the $100 prize is….. Jeanne who submitted this gorgeous picture with 189 votes! ? An honorable mention goes to Erin who was not far behind with 183 ? votes… Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and a big congratulations to Jeanne! Thank you to all the entrants, to me they are all winners, and I so enjoyed each and every picture. Well, its been a good…and bad week. I was fighting something off and on all week (turns out its allergies), cracked my iPhone AND iPad two days apart, and got a touch of poison ivy!!! Can you imagine? THEN? the doozy is that I did a number on my knee again, it buckled and I fell down the stairs. Bad. Really bad.? On crutches and in bed!!!!!! Not fun…and it threw a big wrench in my plans for the weekend. I was invited to the uber glamorous and fun event, Super Saturday in the Hamptons? today but with my knee cannot go (I am lucky to be able to make it to the bathroom). Really bummed but? maybe it’s God’s way of saving me from getting aggravated from sitting in hours of traffic, who? knows! Really hoping that if I do everything? per my doctor’s orders, I will start feeling better in the next few days. Fingers and toes are crossed!! Thank goodness? I have my computer and Pinterest (if you don’t follow me it’s a great time to start, I am on a serious pinning binge)! On top of that my tole line came in, which is MAJOR. Can you imagine, it’s in the warehouse after months of waiting in major anticipation and there is nothing I can do about it! This is so frustrating. Hopefully by Monday I can hobble my way there, cannot wait to start unearthing all the pretties, you will be the first I share it with, I promise. Now the good news….a friend brought over lunch on Friday since I was incapacitated,? so I set up a little table for two and had fun doing it. When stuck inside hobbling around (did this before the big fall) , might as well find the joy in the small things, right? Here are a few snapshots of the setup- The other good news….on Wed. I got together with the most delightful group of Northeast based bloggers, what a fabulous, accomplished, intelligent and exceptional group of women they were! Sandy of You May Be Wandering? and I planned it (well Sandy did more of the planning and did a heck of a job). I provided the blue and white teapots as little favors and Sandy got the gorgeous green hydrangeas so we made little centerpieces, then Jeanne of I Dream Of thoughtfully made the most beautiful placecards with little goodies tucked inside, a chic luggage tag from Cynthia and Carolyn of The Buzz,? Sue from The Zhush added the finishing touch by giving everyone a beautiful set of coasters. A beautiful setting, great food, goodies to take home, lots of laughs, stimulating conversation, does it get better than that? I don’t think so! Can’t wait for the next one:) The bloggers luncheon- The icing on the cake…a very generously sized bananas foster! And finally I got in the most recent copy of? The Cottage Journal,? it is a winner of epic proportions! You know I love fall and the other day when it was sweltering and my poor hair looked like a limp mess, I suddenly had a longing for the crisp dry air of all. This magazine could make a fall lover out of anyone. Trust me, you will want to get a copy. So many beautiful and inspiration images…..I snapped a few with my iPhone! Click here? to subscribe. So there you go….a wrap up of some what has happened this week. It will be a very quiet weekend, with me in bed with my crutches and computer (and huge stack of magazines of course)! The news is too depressing to watch but I do keep all those in harms way in my prayers, it is so incredibly devastating what is happening in our world. I wish you a wonderful day and fabulous weekend,? do something fun for me:) Until Monday my friends…….
