Hello! Hope you are having a great weekend. Ours has been great minus one hiccup. We had dinner with a group of friends on Friday but I was supposed to go out of town as of yesterday for a short girls trip and thanks to yep, you guessed it……more snow and bad weather it did not happen. Here is what things look like around here- Even Teddy is saying he has had quite enough (check out the snazzy zebra bandanna the groomer gave him last week, she thinks he needs to live a bit more on the wild side) I am disappointed but we are going to try again in a few weeks. Moving on, we all know what today is…….Oscar night! And of course I will be watching it from the very first minute that Hollywood’s who’s who steps foot onto the magical red carpet all the way until they announce best picture. And as some have asked you can bet I will be doing my Oscar recap, I wouldn’t miss it!? Here are my seven on Sunday…. ? 1.? OSCARS! I have to kick this off with all things Oscars, enjoyed? these behind the scenes glimpses into feeding 1600 on Oscar night as well as a peek into the famed Green room (all interior enthusiasts will enjoy this)! Plus the seven biggest snubs of the 2015 Academy awards….. The beautiful green room…. Watch Wolfgang talk about what goes into feeding 1600 discerning palettes… http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_87GKhVWR8 And here are the seven biggest snubs of the 2015 Oscar season….. And if Oscar fever has overtaken you, and you have always dreamed of voting and being a part of movie history, click here to fill in your very own ballot and see how your predictions stand up to what happens tonight! Horray for Hollywood! 2. MY NEWEST BLOSSOMS . I absolutely love this new curly willow blossom. It is a cherry blossom that is very curvy/willoy so it can go in all different directions which makes it so dramatic.? Added 6 to each jar and the impact was amazing. Love their shape and they are the perfect length 30″. I had only gotten four cases and they immediately sold but will be adding them? to my online shop, as more will be arriving in the next few weeks. A new fave! 3. INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST. These posts would not be complete without my Instagram faves of? the week. It never lets me down:) Always something fabulous to love, discover and be inspired by! ? And I am always so honored when two of my favorite artists are inspired to paint something that I featured in home or actually OF my home:) They are both brilliant, Patricia of PVE and Jeanne of I Dream Of, bravo ladies! 4. A NEW MONOGRAM OBSESSION. You? know me and my monograms, well I discovered this artist, Kearsley Lloyd and am madly in love with her work! She has such a? beautiful style that really resonates with my own. I had to share…….what a beautiful gift this would make to a bride and groom, a special friend, etc….click here to visit Kearsley Lloyd. 5. A YUMMY POT OF SOUP. I love my soup, especially given that we live in Antarctica and every day feels like a soup day, in fact every meal. Forget cereal and oatmeal I crave serious comfort food from the wee hours of the morning until late at night! So our entire family loves pasta fagiole soup and I was so happy to try this recipe. I only share when something is really good. And this my friends is really good and so hearty.? It is also quite easy (we are lucky and have a great Italian specialty shop nearby so I buy their homemade sauce and used it in the soup) but besides that everything else can be found right at your local market. Ironically the site I found it on is called Tina’s Chic, go figure. Click here for recipe (the only things I added extra were a bit of fresh basil and of course served it with crusty bread) 6. MY DINING ROOM. These are my favorite kinds of “problems” to have, got in the final samples for my Paul Montgomery chinoiserie panels and I am smitten with both but learning towards the beige with soft blues,? as I see a soft neutral tonal room with creamy silk drapes and a scrumptious pale blue trim. Quiet and serene. But the blue is also very beautiful, love them and can hardly wait for this dining room to be transformed. ? 7. HAPPENINGS WITH THE ENCHANTED HOME SHOP.? Lots going on with my little shop. This week I sent out about 1/3 of the monogram orders and it was so much fun getting to see all of the gorgeous linens!!? More to get out as they are ready later this week and next so if you don’t see yours, trust me it’s in the works! Click here to see monogrammed napkins in my online shop.? Here is a peek- Love when I get in new blue and whites…..click here to see the blue and whites in my online shop And am so thrilled with the response to my latest chinoiserie tole pieces. I have of course kept pieces for myself and love the way these tole cachepots look with the boxwood balls against the blue and white…click here to see all chinoiserie tole. So that’s what new in my world. What’s going on in yours?? With this free day that I didn’t? expect to have I am probably going to take full advantage and do a lot of nothing, doesn’t? happen often plus I want to get ready for the big night! Maybe whip up a batch of the pasta fagiole soup. We are covered in snow and ice, so it’s a great day to stay in. Wishing you a wonderful day and great end to your weekend. Happy Oscar Sunday! Until next time…… PS In case you missed it, a promo started yesterday on all of my favorite things. Click here to see.
