Hello there, hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.? Mine was crazy with more Gotham being shot at our house (will be doing a whole post on it so stay tuned). Fun, crazy but quite exhausting. So looking forward to doing absolutely nothing today except cook up something really good. As I do every Sunday, I share seven things that caught my attention this week, would love to hear what’s on your radar. Ready? Let’s begin….. One favor first…..If you love my blog and consider it one of your faves, wondering if you want to nominate me over at the Saveur blog awards. A reader clued me into it after nominating me and suggested I spread the word to my readers as part of the process is also determining how many reader nominations I get which is where you come in?if you like me, really really like me. If you want to nominate me, then please endorse me by clicking here? (you have to fill out 3 or 4 quick questions). Where it asks for my URL please copy and paste this-? http://www.enchantedhome.com/. And thank you:) 1. THE CUTEST BABY CLOTHES WITH A LITTLE BIT OF AN EDGE. OK I know I know, I am well past this stage but I just could not resist the cuteness of these!! I had no idea Banana Republic has come out with their own baby line, BR mini. And let me tell you these are the cutest baby clothes I have seen in a long long time. I was incidentally in the market to buy a baby gift so went to town and had a blast. These are made of of super soft cotton and cashmere, if I were a baby I would want to live in these clothes:) Click here to see the collection. 2. INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST.? You know me and Instagram, we are great buds now. I do love the 24/7 inspiration it provides, from amazing food ideas to magnificent travel destinations and fabulous fashion….it’s like a non stop parade of beauty! Here are my faves from this week, lots of winners this week…. 3. A NEW AND IMPROVED RITZ PARIS……oh to be boarding a plane for Paris and staying at what will surely be the grandest hotel in Paris once again, the iconic Ritz. They are undergoing a massive renovation and it promises to be nothing less than perfection. This video is really fascinating, on the process from start to finish. Clearly a huge undertaking, but how amazing it will be when it’s all done! There is not an official reopen date as of yet (I called)? but I am sure as things move along they will announce it soon…..click here for their website. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=UDqKAoJTB-w 4. DWARF CITRUS TREES. Currently having an obsession with dwarf fruit trees. Think this picture from Carolyne Roehm is what started it all…I mean come on, how could this not inspire someone? Then I started collecting pictures of them and? remember a fundraising luncheon I went to a few years ago where the tables were sprinkled with mini mandarin trees in bright cobalt blue planters and the effect was spectacular. So now I am trying my hand at them….and cannot wait to plant them in one of my blue and whites. I ordered three to start from Four Winds Growers? (another reason why I need a greenhouse). That idea was put on hold during the tough winter, but is going to be put on the front burner as soon as the big thaw is official. Love these…click here to visit Four Winds Growers. These Chinese mandarin trees are AMAZING….I am kind of obsessing over them right now:) 5. THE MOTHERHOOD VIDEO. There is a good chance you have seen this since it went viral, it is both funny and actually touching at the end…..I think any mom, and any kind of mom can relate to this. And boy they really covered all the different “socially and politically correct” demographics of moms here! http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Me9yrREXOj4 6. NEW HURRICANES. The hurricanes are here! SO you spoke loud and clear and a whopping 74% loved the idea of me adding these to my shop, siting that they are hard to find. So as of yesterday, they are now online under new arrivals. Click here to see.…really loving the collection. 7. CUSTOMIZED CAKE TOPPERS. Have you seen these? I wrote about them about a year ago. A good friends daughter is getting married in the fall and I am thinking of having one made for her and give it to her at the shower. These are so amazing and the degree to which you can customize them makes them so unique. You submit pictures of the bride and groom and then select hair color, skin color, eyes,etc….and they customize a cake topper to look just like the bride and groom. You can go classic all the way to fun and funky. Love this….click here to see more at Bobblgram Anything here excite or delight you?
