Hello, and how is your July 4th weekend going ? Here we are so relaxed, having a wonderful time. I love waking up and opening up all the doors and letting in that ocean air, making my coffee sitting on the deck catching up on reading, doing a fair amount of work then spending the afternoon doing something leisurely. A fair amount of work and play:) Hope your holiday weekend is going well…..though they were calling for rain, we got very lucky and the second half of the day ended up being beautiful so everything was on schedule including the grand finale of the fireworks display. Here we go with my Seven on Sunday….. ? 1. A DREAM VILLA. I can’t believe I have never been to Tuscany, that is going to be changing sooner than later! Isn’t this villa (for rent) in Tuscany an absolute dream? Click here if you want more information (and feel free to invite me for a weekend)! 2. INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST. Always love to share with you what has caught my eye on Instagram and let’s face it….there is lots to be inspired by so sometimes narrowing it down can be a challenge. Here is what made my list this week….. 3.A FABULOUS NEW BAG AND PERFECT SUMMER WEDGES. I recently bought both these items and am enjoying them so much, the bag is the perfect size and so practical while being very good looking with the rich looking matte croc leather……looks super expensive.? The shoes are so comfortable and look great with everything I have paired them with. LOVE this tote, seriously looks like a million dollars (but is far less)!From Vince who I didn’t even knew made bags, but its not surprising I love this as I am a huge fan of their tissue weight cashmere sweaters, great line.? Click here for details, a perfect tote in my humble opinion. And I always have a hard time finding a good looking but comfortable white shoe, however this darling Prada wedge is a winner. Very comfortable (super key) and honestly looks good with everything from capris, to maxi dresses……plus its not too tall, so many of the wedges are like mini skyscrapers! I also love them in black…..click here for the 411 4. FAVORITE MONTAUK RESTAURANTS…..Montauk has some really wonderful, casual but cool vibe restaurants that have progressive chefs at their helm and of course the prefect seaside location. If you are planning a trip out this way….thought you might want to take note of? a few I highly recommend- Harvest on Fort Pond- On a lake this is a long time favorite, wonderful food (we were there yesterday) where you can sit outside in the garden or indoors. It is wonderful! Navy Beach- A hot spot that has gotten only more popular, good food, happening and being on the water where you can literally pull in on your boat makes this a boaters fave. NAVY BEACH South Edison- Cute, funky and progressive, a newer restaurant, great food, lively scene with occasional live music. 6. ROSE, I do love my Roses in the summer, they go perfectly well with just about everything:) Here are some recent faves, and all are priced really well:) Both of these are really really good, so happy that my local wine shop recommended them! If you like Domaines Ott you will love these:) 7.CHARLES FAUDREE’S LAST PROJECT. I was so smitten with this fabulous mountain home that was Charles Faudree’s last project …talk about amazingly cozy and elegant. I was a huge fan of his work (still am)? and fell I love with this home, truly beautiful and so true to his elegant, effortless style, what? a legend and legacy he has left behind.

This butchers block took my breath away, I read that they designed the kitchen around it..I would have done the same thing:) So there you have my seven on Sunday…anything excite you or get your attention?
