Crisp and cool…just how I like it! I? have a friend coming in from NYC and we may venture to a local fall festival and will likely let Teddy tag along:) Did a? little antiquing too which is always fun as you never know what you might find! Hope whatever you are up to is wonderful and relaxing. Here are my seven things I am loving this week……. 1. RUN DON’T WALK TO GET THIS BOOK. OK after a stressful day the other day, I came home to a great big package at my door. When I saw that it was from Random House, I got excited…….good things come from RH! Then upon opening it and seeing it was the hot off the presses much anticipated new book , Carolyne Roehm at Home in the Garden,? I jumped for joy and promptly canceled my evening plans so I could sit down and properly devour every page and devour I did…….total heaven! Bottom line? This book does not disappoint and in fact is? like a great movie that you don’t want to end…this book is the same. It is enormously oversized and filled with an abundance of huge glossy images that are just sublime and truly take your breath away.? It will get all of your senses in overdrive in the best way possible. Surely one of my new favorite books of all time……so beautiful!

Never short on beautiful inspiration to share…..in fact sometimes it’s hard to draw the line, but here are this weeks favorites, with a healthy does of gorgeous fall inspiration- 3. A LITTLE BIT OF FALL IN MY HOME. I am admittedly very late to the “getting my house in fall mode” party. Between no longer having young kids who delight and anticipate my fall decorating touches and being super busy. I just haven’t had the time is the bottom line,? not to mention? my impatients are still blooming and? look too good to rip out, the guilt would kill me.? But I added a few small things here and there to celebrate my favorite season! Amazing how far a large box of about 30 little white gourds can go…. 4. GORGEOUS NEW FABRICS. Working with an e design customer and having such fun as I always do playing with fabrics….this Tilton Fenwick fabric from Duralee Soskin got me started? and I am loving this with her rug for a pair of chairs, it is really beautiful and so luxurious, as it’s a raised velvet and simply fabulous. The tablecloth I had custom made from the olive version of Soskin? sold right away at the gala but I am having a duplicate done I loved it so much:) I got extra fabric and am having two? more tablecloths made (that were orders) and pillows…really love this fabric! Then of course I started looking at other Tilton Fenwick fabrics and my mind started racing with ideas…… The same fabric in olive- And a few other fabulous Tilton Fenwick fabrics I am loving…it;s a line that really appeals to me, click here to view all 5. THE MOST DARLING LITTLE CHERUB! One of my readers sent in a picture of her baby..and I could not resist sharing (of course with her permission). Looks just like a little doll….and love her name, Ruby! I want to reach in and pinch (very very gently) those sweet chubby rosy cheeks:)? Is she not the cutest? 6. TWO NEW BOOTS! I always get a pair or two of all weather boots for my closet as winters here are long, brutal and cold and I am hearing murmurs of a a lot of snow…ugh! Really like these cute new pair from Hunter, great length and love the faux furry trim detail. Click here for details… Then these from Frye fit so well…love them, an over the knee boot looks amazing with everything from pants, jeans to skirts. Also flattering as it lengthens the leg and you never heard a woman say she wants her legs to look to look shorter, right:) These fit really well and can be worn with the flap up or down…….nice soft leather too:) Click here for details And these I have from last year but happy to see Tory Burch is making them still, love them so much might get another pair for safe keeping, they are super warm and so pretty!
