Hi friends as I periodically do I share snippets of my life this last week through pictures taken with my iPhone…..amazing the little story they tell. For me, its all about the gorgeous fall foliage and turning of the leaves…I cannot get enough, it is spectacular wherever I go! I am headed out of town for four days. I am excited and looking forward to a little getaway (much needed). I have been burning the midnight oil and just need to completely disconnect for a few days. I will not post my usual Seven on Sunday where I was supposed to announce a winner of the Horchow giveaway. It will instead be on Monday afternoon so stay tuned:) Wishing you a great rest of the week and weekend, it is going to be a nippy but no doubt super beautiful one here, the weather has been so fall fabulous.? So here is a snippet of my life in the last week or so…. Look who has decided he likes my family room chair way more than his bed…..and the leopard needlepoint pillow for that matter We have the best Italian market super authentic, everyone speaks Italian there…..there’s lines outside the corner around the holidays but their cured sausages, cheeses and homemade pastas are out of this world! (Razzano’s) I simply cannot get enough of fall’s beauty this time of year! Our new gates! I love them…not 100% done, waiting for the electrical to be completed Did some orchid sprucing up around the house Took out my fall themed dinnerware and started to think about Thanksgiving A favorite fresh pasta brand…sooo good! Have a friend who is restoring an old home, and there is a cottage on the property that she just redid, here’s a few? pictures..so charming! Made this pretty orchid arrangment for a housewarming gift This is honestly my favorite Caesar salad ever. SO good, click here where I shared my recipe….I promise you will LOVE it! More of fall’s splendor Made a mean pot of gumbo (a specialty) and had a friend come over for what I am sure is the last al fresco meal of the season! A great score was this fabulous flatware, can never have too much! Does this mean I have “arrived” getting a goody box from Downy:) GREAT new product, just started to use it….seriously life changing people! And that t shirt, my son proudly wears it…what a renaissance man:) A little fall sprucing up with more of my little white pumpkins Went for a walk on a local beach with a dear friend And how gorgeous is this? Her backyard….dreamy! Slightly tweaked front door, added the med. urns for my enormous white mums…love white! And look how pretty the small pond is with the foliage as a backdrop There you have it……I just can’t stop marveling at fall and its beauty, and you? What’s new in your world? Just a few things to remind you of- If you haven’t entered the contest for the beautiful monogrammed guest towels from Horchow, click here (winner to be announced now on Monday) And a new and extremely awesome promo started yesterday, click here for the details (its exceptional)!
