Hello! Coming off the heels of a super busy weekend…and frankly as much fun as it was,  I am glad it’s over. It’s back to work and  assessing all that needs to be done.

It’s crunch time for us that celebrate Christmas this week…and I am sure like me, you have a list a mile long of things to accomplish this week. I made a big “master list” Sunday night and broke it down with tasks to do each day. I now feel in control and know in the end it really does all get done.

A few things before I share with you recent pics-

As I do from time to time I share with you a snippet of my life as seen through my iPhone….the good, pretty and happy only of course:)


Scenes from an amazing baby “Elf themed” shower-

Highlights from a few birthday lunches/dinners…above from Manza and below my favorite appetizer from Kyma


Highlights from a luncheon I hosted for a treasured friend….

Had such fun mulling over trims with a client for her dining room…so many to love!

Felt sooo much love on my birthday, it was  three days of gifts, dinners and flowers:)

And even felt the love at work~

Went to NYC on my bday and spent part of the day in Eataly sampling our way through on a private tour and had a fabulous lunch at Manga

After a wonderful birthday it was back to the world of boxes that I have lived in lately:)

Loving my blue and white Christmas this year and will never go back to red and green:)

How gorgeous is this work of art sent by none other than taste maker Bettie Pardee….love it and cannot wait to put it in my office to enjoy everyday!

Ribbon/giftwrapping theme this year

Friends beautiful elegant entry foyer whose home we went to for  a Christmas party

One big perk of having your own shop is an plethora of great gifts always on hand! We filled this two tier silver platter with adorable Christmas cookies from a local bakery as a great hostess gift!

We got a few inches of snow a few days ago which was a wonderful surprise

It is always fun to look back at the highlights of the last week or so…and there were many. Lots of crazy, hectic, stressful moments too but who needs to see those, lol. Thanks for stopping in, wishing you a wonderful day and a super productive week.  Until next time……
