Hello! This random musings post was mostly from last week but never got around to posting it so added pictures from the last few days therefore it’s a compilation of the last two weeks:)

Busy,busy weeks over here….as I occasionally do I share with you a snippet of my life through pictures taken with my iPhone. It is funny how they can tell a story, but I must preface this by saying this is only the pretty, inspirational and positive:)

With Thanksgiving now a thing of the past, it’s full steam ahead to Christmas/holidays. My life has centered mostly around the blue and white ornament universe and I go to sleep dreaming about them:)

A few updates to tell you about (feast or famine and this week it’s a definite feast of products coming in)-

Ornaments- We get calls/emails everyday for people looking for the ornaments. NEVER thought my new site would have taken this long and the plan was that they would be up for sale on  my shop site long by now. So…..for anyone who wants them, you can visit this post below, we are honoring those prices on that promo and send orders to [email protected] or call in your order to 1-800-804-9565 (between 9:30-5:30, leave a message if you call before or after)

Post for ornaments-


The porcelain container is arriving tomorrow…woo hoo! All presale orders will start shipping out tomorrow afternoon in the order they were received:)

The colored ornaments and foo dog ornaments shipment will be arriving on Friday or Monday!

New chinoiserie tole order arriving early next week, stunning lamps and the long awaited bamboo lanterns are coming!

OK back to this post:) So here is a look at my life this last week….




My greenhouse aka my laundry room is a busy place with trying to force open white azalea topiaries and arranging my beautiful fruit double topiary

Thank you so much for sharing it makes all of us who follow lives richer! Will be getting more it looks so pretty.

Wow! You are like the energizer bunny! and it’s all so lovely…You’ve definitely got me wanting to decorate everything …..just like in your own home and in your jaunting’s about! Just so beautiful! Thank you.

Lots to love, Tina. The planters with the antlers are brilliant – may do that myself and dying to know more about the easy breadsticks- yum!! Happy Wednesday!

Love the photo posts you do and the Seven on Sunday are my favorite. Such pretty pics of a beautiful life. Holidays bring on a crazy, happy schedule for many and when you arrive at your home after a full days work, for me I would think I was in heaven. Your home is beautiful and your decorating skills show your love for it as well.

Your back seat comment is so funny! You should have a “musings from the back seat” segment. LOL! Love your posts!

Gorgeous pictures!!! No snow here yet, and I’m OK with it!! Am I the only one who wants the recipe to the Easy Peasy Breadsticks? They look scrumptious!! Anxious for another “Bluff Diaries” Chapter!!! Blessings my friend!

Amazing! I have only just found your site.. How inspirational for me. I haven’t celebrated Xmas since losing my family, but this is giving me that happy feeling!

Thank you so much.

Your random musings are my favorite. You do so much in a week that your post is jam packed and full of beautiful pictures. I love the beauty! Have a lovely Wednesday!!

Those little trees at the end of your post are so familiar to me and then last night we watched rudolf, and there those darling trees are in the beginning of the movie when the snowman narrator, Burl Ives is taking. So anyway, those little trees were also used in landscape design for Rudolf the Red Nose !!

You’re so far ahead of us, Tina, when it comes to holiday decorating as we’re trying to get our clients’ wishes met before Christmas. We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and look forward to a beautiful holiday season.

Love the Kravet Carpet . They look so easy to care for. Any of them would look beautiful in your P B home.

What a beautiful post full of so much to marvel at. I laughed at your back seat comment, yes your back seat would put some reality shows to shame:-)
I am so enjoying your beautiful holiday decor and want to thank you for inspiring me. I until a week ago, was not feeling very inspired to start the laborious job of holiday decorating but now I am in full swing and really having fun. So thank you!
