***A FEW QUICK UPDATES-

There was an “outage” on the blog yesterday for a few hours off and on, I apologize. There was some kind of a glitch. I am extending the porcelain promo sale until tomorrow night for the inconvenience…things are back up and running smoothly!***

***THE PROVENCE PLANTERS CAME IN TODAY! IF YOU PREORDERD YOU WILL GET AN EMAIL TOMORROW WITH REGARD TO SHIPPING COSTS***

***THE ORNAMENTS ARE ON NEW YORK SOIL! GOING THROUGH CUSTOMS WE SHOULD HAVE THEM BY TUES/WED. ORDERS WILL START GOING RIGHT OUT!!***

Hello and happy Friday evening! Hope you are well and gearing up for a relaxing fall weekend. The weather here has gotten much cooler the last few days and I must admit I am loving it:) Though I wouldn’t mind if we could stop at 50 degrees….I am kind of done with below zero frigid NY winters.

As I periodically do,  I share  snippets of my life (the good and pretty only) via pictures taken with my iPhone. It’s a fun way to share.  So without further ado here we go…..

Was inspired to add this garden seat in the living room after going over Mark Sike’s wonderful book, Beautiful

Enjoyed creating this pretty fall tablescape for “It’s All Set” last week

This might be the tastiest tomato I have ever had, it was incredible!!

Perhaps the coziest room in our house, one which I do not think I have featured…the library. Love it especially in the colder months:)

Wrapped up these beautiful napkins for a lucky client, I do love white on white..so elegant!

We are lucky to have the neatest super authentic Italian specialty shop only 15 min away, I make weekly stops there…their cured meats and cheeses are unparalleled!

The fall foliage has not started quite yet but this tree is always well ahead of schedule, so beautiful.

Above is a sad looking room at the warehouse which is about to be converted into a much prettier office! Carpet getting installed tomorrow, everything was moved out today

How pretty is this above? It is commercial carpet that I found, cannot wait to see it in:) I would put this in a home!

A busy week calls for an occasional “splurge” in this case that means Shake Shack on the run! Yum!!

Had fun experimenting for my client and doing a dress rehearsal with  her gorgeous deep green velvet that will go onto a window seat, and we are going to fill it with blue and white pillows

Loved  stopping off at a local bathroom/kitchen showroom and seeing all that is new and beautiful in that world!

So love this sink for the PB powder room, it’s all about budget though:)

Been  making a lot of this lately…my all time favorite soup, pasta fagiole, click here for the recipe which I posted

When I cook this cutie pie is never far away…he has a box seat right in front of the stove!

Your library is stunning! Would you mind posting some additional shots sometime?

Design chic on

So much to love, Tina and a busy week, I see. The pillows on your chairs look gorgeous and love the addition of the garden seat…fabulous and of course, your mascot on the front porch is the best! Happy weekend!

Eve on

Lovely post as usual. Where can I purchase the lemon zester? This one seems to do a really great job. Thanks!

Colleen Hunt on

Would love seeing more and better shots of your library. Looks beautiful.

Marsha Scott on

Tina-Poo, YOU & TEDDY are my favorite posts ever. I love dogs too. Love all you design works too, and WOW getting an office means you are growing very fast doesn’t it? You are so very talented and so very NICE. Wish you were closer !!!

JoAnne on

Are there other French planters available or only for those who preordered?

Love all your pretty shots!

Pat on

I love all your posts❣ I do try to copy/mimic your designs!

BONNIE on

HI TINA,

SO GREAT TO UNWIND AT NIGHT WITH A CUP OF COFFEE AND SEE WHATS BEAUTIFUL IN THE WORLD. IF POSSIBLE, MY DINING ROOM IS BLUE AND WHITE, WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHOS FABRIC THAT WAS WITH THE DOGS AND CATS. THANKS SO MUCH.

Valerie Kokenes on

Goodness Tina! Your library is truly amazing !!

Elaine on

i always enjoy all of your post! You saved the best for last! We love our family pets! Have a great weekend!

Debbie Slezak on

Tina, I love your finds, and especially Mr. Teddy! I am of Italian descent and always found it exciting to go to the Italian store on Sundays — I can smell the fennel and cheeses! Thanks for the pasta fagiole recipe!

Love the change of colors — and those leaves! We have a longer wait her in So Cal for that burst of color!

P.S. I have a yellow lemon juicer I adore like your grater!
Table settings are my pastime and plates!! So always like that posting!

Donna De Marino on

Teddy….he’s the best! He looks so much like our Golden Abby and she too lies right in front of the stove when I’m trying to cook. She’ll move if I ask her but I hardly ever do..

@bonnie: A similar dog theme pattern is available in wallpaper called Dog’s Life AF1940 comes in different colorways. Book name, Ashford Toiles by York Wallcoverings. Maybe the book offers the fabric too?? It’s so cute.

Celia Becker@ www.AfterOrangeCounty.com on

Tina, you are the busiest woman I know! How do you do it all?? Thanks for sharing your library, so warm and inviting. Always great to get a glimpse of your world through your lense. Love it all! Happy weekend.

Regina Drover on

Thank you for such a lovely post.

Amy baumann on

OH my Goodness…my heart went pitter patter with the striking pose of Mr. Teddy, I’m in love!!!! Lol!!!

Sherry on

Did I see the word, ornaments?! Oh, I can’t wait!!

Deanna on

Teddy was posing so beautifully! I love it! And your library is exquisite; the deep, rich color makes it a super cozy room. I love that too. So much to look at. Thank you!

joan on

Teddy is certainly a very handsome dude – just don’t tell my Rexx I said that…He used to lay by the stove but now he’s learned that he can sit on the couch with his chin on the back pillow and get an eagle’s eye view of everything I’m doing on the kitchen island – and only gets down when he spots something he wants to beg a taste of.
That dog & cat toile fabric is darling and how sweet would that be in a little girl’s room? Could you let us know which fabric shop that came from? Is it that great one in Norwalk, CT?

Afn on

So fun that you share all this with your readers . Always look forward to your post.
Micro planes are the best. There are more to choose from that you may like. Thanks for all the pics.a

Gina on

Tina I love seeing all your beautiful pictures, it’s a joy to sit down and take those few minutes out of the day for beauty. I especially love the pictures of your home and would love to see all the rooms in your house, as I’m sure they are all beautiful.

Judy Stevenson on

Beautiful! Love the picture of Teddy in front of your beautiful doors!

Sandy @ You May Be Wandering on

These posts are always such fun – a glimpse into the life of Tina! I especially love the pic of Teddy! Hope you are enjoying your relaxing weekend! xoxo

elizabeth@pineconesandacornsblog on

Teddy is so cute! I love seeing him! The soup looks delicious, I am going to have to make that soon.

Love seeing what you are up too and hope that you have a fabulous weekend Tina.

P.S Love your cosy library!

leigh on

Always love your “all things pretty!” Such a nice way to begin the morning with my coffee! Teddy is surely a handsome dog, and love your library! Hope you post more photos of it. I continue to marvel at your design talent and am just so glad that you share it all with us! Thank you!
