Hello, happy Sunday to you! Gorgeous weekend here but boy is it getting cold. I hear by Thurs. we will have high’s of only 40 degrees!! Time to bring out the big guns….. heavy coats, chunky sweaters and my gloves! Hope you are having a nice weekend, as I do every Sunday, I am sharing seven things that have gotten my attention. Ready? Let’s go……. 1. CHINOISERIE PUMPKINS!? Who said Halloween is just for October! And what is better than one of the gorgeous chinoiserie blue and white pumpkins from talented Karolyn of The Relished Roost? TWO of them! I almost fell over in my chair when I opened up the box and saw a sibling for my original chinoiserie? blue and white pumpkin!! Halloween will be alive in my house right through Christmas because these beauties are not going anywhere. She is so darn talented, I told her this is indeed a business so stay tuned for next Halloween! This is the newest addition to the chinoiserie pumpkin family…hope there are many generations to come:) And this is the original….. 2. TABLETOP INSPIRED BY MYRTLE TOPIAIRES. I have Loi from Tone on Tone to thank for this one! Ever since I first saw his picture next to his prize winning topiaries, I literally became obsessed with them. Sadly, in this area they are very hard to find but I was on a mission and luckily found them.? I did an entire post on them if you missed it click here. I was inspired to “play” with them for a tabletop for a small lunch I may be hosting….. 3.INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST. I always like to include instagrams that have caught my attention and this week there was,? as usual an over abundance of amazing inspiration in all forms…. 4.ONE GORGEOUS LANTERN. How stunning is this? I am in love and have placed an order for it and can only hope it will be fulfilled. They were down to the last of these as it is a discontinued item…..crossing my fingers! 5. MY? TALENTED READERS. I love the emails I get from my readers, I? try to take the time to read every one of them and cannot tell you how much I enjoy hearing and learning about my readers who by the way are one interesting and accomplished bunch! Whether its on the decorating front, the writing/publishing end or creative angle…they are an incredibly talented group and I am so happy to have connected with so many of them. This week I learned that Jill Karr is an accomplished artist whose work is worth sharing…I was amazed at her beautiful work and love her artistic expression. Click here to visit Jill Karr. Then we have our resident comedienne/blogger? friend Katie from Preppy Empty Nester who always promises to add some laughter into my day. She has really proven her decorating chops when she wowed me with pictures of her newly comcompleted foyer! I was so happy to see the items she bought from me gracing this incredible home. Talk about doing beautiful justice……wowza! 6. A NEW BOOK I AM LOVING! Got in Valentino’s book and holy moly, this is one A M A Z I N G L Y beautiful book.? It is enormous and the kind of book you want total peace to read as you will want to give it your undivided attention, it is extravagant but you wouldn’t expect anything less from Valentino and there is a very healthy dose of blue and white which is the icing on the cake:) It is spectacular in every way, as I had suspected it would be but seeing really is believing. If you are a book collector like me and believe you can truly never ever have enough you MUST get this book! Click here to order on Amazon. 7.? PICTURES THAT MAKE ME EXCITED ABOUT WINTER. Well……almost. On second thought bone chilling temps, icy roads and howling winds are only OK if I am in for the day. But these pictures taken from Peacock Park Design are so incredibly beautiful I just had to share, they are really breathtaking. Talk about enchanting, from Peacock Park Design. And a spectacular picture of the same grounds coming alive in the spring! See anything that? interests you? What’s new in your world? Love to hear from you so tell us all about it. Wishing everyone a fabulous day and great end to your weekend! Thank you for stopping in, I am going to have an amazing and final 2014 Steals and Deals tomorrow, you won’t want to miss it. Until next time…..
