Hi and Happy Sunday to you. How is your weekend going? Hope well, I pulled my back so part of my weekend was spent doing absolutely nothing, am hoping with continued bedrest I will be back on my feet literally and figuratively very soon, I so? miss not being able to be at the beach this weekend.

But am watching documentaries galore and saw The Horse Whisperer for maybe the 40th time as well as the documentary based on the real “horse whisperer” which was really fascinating, it is called Buck and is available on Netflix FYI. As I always do…here are seven things on my mind this past week!



1. TORY BURCH IN PARIS. You might have seen this on the internet somewhere but boy I could stare at this? all day long, just love her newest store in Paris. Such a beautiful shop that feels so glamorous and sophisticated for an equally glamorous and sophisticated city. Yet one more reason to visit Paris:)

2. INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST, once again so much to love this week. I cannot get over the inspiration I find on a daily basis, it has me wanting to plan a party al fresco, whip up something yummy and do a little blue and white rearranging all at once:)


3. SNAPSHOTS FROM THE FARMERS MARKET. For me getting to spend time in the Hamptons/Montauk is all about bringing me back to nature. Lazy bike rides, long walks to the lighthouse or beach, relaxed afternoons reading on the porch, and of course hitting as many farm stands as I can find! Montauk has a farmers market once a week and it is such an old fashioned treat, had fun capturing it with my iPhone. I love taking pictures of farmstands and get so excited over beautiful fruits and vegetables…..go figure:)



4.MY TALENTED READERS/CUSTOMERS. I so love getting in your pictures…always fun for me to see what you are up to and how you use/display things you have gotten from me and my online shop…keep me coming. Here are a few recent pictures I got that were worth sharing……

5. GREAT DEAL ON MONOGRAMMED TOWELS!? I wait for this sale from Horchow all year…and then stock up! I just placed my order and thought this was a deal worth sharing! Where else would you? find a monogrammed bath towel in an array of colors for $12.99! Click here for more info…..

6.ONE AMAZING BEACH HOUSE. I have the beach on my mind a lot lately, since we have been there so much and there are few more beautiful places than the Hamptons but an ultra posh beach location. How incredible is this amazing Hamptons beach house beautifully located between the ocean and bay? If you have 50 million to spare,

7. ALEX PAPACHRISTIDIS HOME IN BRIDGEHAMPTON. Far more formal than what most think of when they conjure up a beach house but no less incredible, I love his book The Age of Elegance and refer to it often, it is to me a must have. Here are a pictures of his “beach house” in Bridgehampton…

Great inspiration for this Sunday morning Tina!
I found a couple of new Instagram friends and what can I say about Alex! I too adore his book and any images of his own homes! Talented beyond!

Goodmoring Tina! I love your musings and the beautiful images that make me long for home.
Seeing the blue awnings on that beach house was so validating as I have them here on my CA home. Many ask why I would have blue awnings in surprise and some disgruntled as CA boasts neutral tones. I reply that if you knew where I was from you wouldn’t need to ask (I grew up on Cape Cod, MA).

So glad you enjoyed your beach vacation. The ocean roar and the salty air are so soothing. I wrote a poem about growing up in Cape Cod : ~Low Tide on the Cape~
Whispers of salty, windblown surf,
Wave?s curling fingers gripping the shore,
Pastel scallops coyly peek from the sand,
Tendrils of seaweed covet purple-blue periwinkles,
Shrieking , snowy gulls scoop wingfulls of spray,
Brown sugar sandbar?s rising humps, gleam.
Footprint wells, trek to the horizon,
Soft din of children, plastic pails in tow,
Rainbow hued Sunfish sails billow and lean,
Swirling eddies tease and tickle my toes,
Tide pools miniature museums, display.
Soft roar of cub waves, soon to swell?
Hurry to the slurry speech of shore.
Tingly, warming skin blossom with freckles,
Rolled pant legs drip with sandy vestiges of day,

Low, moan of fog horns lull me to sleep,

Seahorse and starfish waltz in my dreams.

Pure joy looking at these pictures! Envisioning myself and my two daughters (3 & 6) relaxing and having fun in the backyard of the last beach house. LOVE!!

Tina, it’s always relaxing to sip a cup of coffee and scroll through your posts.

Thank you for sharing the beauty and inspiration that fills your world. It certainly enriches mine, and helps me slow down and see it in my own.

Blessings to you and yours.

Lovely post, Tina. Wish I could visit that farmer’s market. I have a ‘thing’ for fresh fruit and vegetables too! And that bread looks yummy. Enjoy your vacation. Hope your back is better soon.

Oh my! I can practically smell those fabulous looking peaches and cherries right through my computer screen! And with several showers coming up this summer I’m going to check out the Horchow sale. Thanks again for shining a spotlight on so many wonderful things!!

Your pictures of the farmer’s market were so lovely and enticing that I wish I could visit it! Take care and I hope your back feels better soon, Tina!

Hi Tina! So sorry to hear you’ve hurt your back. My husband did the same about a week ago and is finally feeling better. Hope you are, too. Thanks for taking us to the Farmer’s Market – one of my favorite things about summer – and to some gorgeous beach houses, and to Tory’s new Paris shop. I think we need do a little shopping, don’t you?

Hope you are back to normal soon and it’s a lovely week! XOXO

Tory has impeccable style!! I wish she would do a fabric line! I will also take that Hampton’s house, when do I move in? xo Happy Monday Tina!
