Hi there, hope you are enjoying a great weekend.? Up here in the north east, we? waited a long time and have earned this superb spring weather that we are finally having. Yesterday it got to 80 degrees, uncanny and that is my limit, past 80 I start to wilt:) ? Busy with the showhouse, went to DC for one night to celebrate a friends birthday (love Georgetown)? and today am planning to work on the showhouse and make some progress so I can meet the deadline in a few days. As I do every Sunday, I share what’s on my mind this week. So without further ado, here we go…… 1. TULIP MANIA. Wow are the tulips ever pretty this year! I have been buying them on a regular basis and putting them in small vases all over the place. I love the many shades of pinks, yellows, cream and of course all the beautiful variegated variates. I put this together in honor of my friend/fellow blogging friend, Elizabeth of Pretty Pink Tulips in celebration of her blog turning 5 big ones!! 2. MY FOYER IN AN AD FOR PAUL MONTGOMERY! The people at Paul Montgomery liked my foyer so much that they featured it in an ad that ran recently in Mileiu magazine. I almost didn’t mention it because there was a color saturation issue and as it was their mistake, they are running the ad again in the fall but it still looked great and still is so very pretty! Look for the new and improved (color wise) ad to be out in the fall issue of Milieu magazine! Click here to see the most beautiful chinoiserie papers. 3. INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST. I so love sharing these with you and never ever is there a shortage of beauty to share. Love what I discovered this week and hope you will too…… 4. THE PROPER WAY TO PACK. This is fantastic! I love this handy how to and just had to share…..thought you summer travelers might enjoy this. Hope I can actually employ this handy little chart this summer! 5. ONE FABULOUS LOCATION. Oh. my. gosh. This has my name written all over it. THIS is what I dream of doing having one day! I need to have some kind of event here, how fabulously beautiful is this barn? available for private events, weddings, etc..and best part is there are accommodations too! Located on bucolic? acres in Buxton, Maine. Click here for the lowdown, if you book it for something, I will accept my finders fee being invited to your event:) 6. THE GUEST HOUSES AT BARNAT FLANAGAN FARM. I don’t normally devote two spots to one subject but this is just too good. So besides being able to rent out that gorgeous barn up there, there is the uber charming farmhouse to accommodate overnight guests as well as a three season grooms cottage located just off the exterior of the cottage. They are so beautifully and tastefully decorated and so fitting for the setting. Take a peek…… 7. ESPADRILLE MANIA. As I get older, I find myself gravitating towards flat comfortable shoes but they must look good. So in the warmer weather espadrilles are a no brainer, they always look so chic and can pull even the simplest of outfits together. I went on a little espadrille shipping spree lately and must say there has never been such a fabulous selection. All below are some of my faves from Saks,? known for their amazing collection. Have a fave? Here are my six favorites, I literally want one of each but will narrow it down begrudgingly to two:) 1. Love this with the lace detail from Cole Haan, calling my name…..click here to view 2. This stylish Burberry espadrille would look so great with all my neutrals…very smart! Click here for details 3. Another great take on a neutral, I like these as they could go into the cooler months too? Fendi is looking mighty good! Click here to see 4. How cute are these orange espadrilles by Chloe? I could see a pair of white capris, a navy and white striped bandeau top and these! Summer dressing at its best. Click here to see this shoe… 5.? Loooove this one, so cute! DVF created this darling espadrille, could become an every day favorite. I can attest to the fact that these are also very comfortable! Click here. 6. And finally this is the perfect neutral espadrille, since I wear so much white, tan and beige these were calling my name! Click here to view So there my friends you have it.
