So excited to have the brand new porcelain sets up (big money savers) and takes the guesswork out of what goes together and almost all the new pillows for my Palmetto Bluff Collection are up as well. Many of you asked about the 36″ boxwood balls I featured, they are not online as there are only 6 left but if you are interested in them, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org Hope you are having a great weekend. Here summer is in full bloom and the weather has been incredible except this morning woke up to rain. Definitely trying to take full advantage as much as possible. Spent the day on the North Fork yesterday, and had such fun “farm hopping” and loaded up my car with all kinds of wonderful produce and farm flowers, then last night had dinner with friends, friends coming over to watch the World Cup Finals and then heading over to a friends home later today to check out their brand new renovation, always fun to see a new project. So busy but enjoyable weekend. I have to admit though, while I am physically here, mentally I am still back in my PB! I love and crave the lazy, relaxed days there and miss them already:) Hope your summer is going well and you are finding time to enjoy all the pleasures of this wonderful season too…… ___________________________________ 1 THE HYDRANGEAS ARE IN FULL BLOOM! I had a hard time coming home from PB but my hydrangeas in full bloom were a welcome sight and made coming home a little easier. I went to town right away cutting and arranging, made a few simple arrangements to add some summer cheer to the house. In blue white, every color flower looks beautiful! 2 MY AMAZING CUSTOMERS. I love sharing pictures on my blog that we get in from time to time of my customers beautiful homes, gorgeous taste and exceptional decorating skills. This Sunday it’s all about Provence planters and a few blue and white planters and how they were used in customers various homes. Whether it’s a Hamptons beach house or a more formal home, they nailed it! Check out the most recent batch we got in…all I can say is WOW! 3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST Lots of summer beauty and inspiration this week…..we are in the thick of it and this reminds me of what a truly incredible season summer really is! 4. BIKES FOR PALMETTO BLUFF. I forgot how much I love bike riding. At Palmetto Bluff it’s de rigeour, everyone bike rides….we did it every day (once the sun starts to set in the hotter summer months) and in the evening nothing was more enjoyable than going on a long lazy bike ride, stopping by the Montage during cocktail hour, listening to the live music and watching all the kids go bonkers over the roving Smores mobile. It’s a way of life so found these bikes which have both the color scheme of the house and the old fashioned vibe of PB. I just ordered a bunch so that when we have guests over, we can enjoy an evening bike ride with them:) Surprisingly these were super reasonable, a lot of look for the money! Love the retro vibe and like the price even more (click here to see) Here are the mens bikes I bought, very good looking and so well priced (click here to see) 5. CANNED ROSE´. You heard right…..canned! To me, Rose´ and summer go together like milk and cookies. They are a perfect match and I love Rose´. I was intrigued when I saw the canned version. I have only tried two and one was surprisingly really good, the other was just OK. But in doing my “investigative research” here are some that have come out on top. Rose´ all day was the one I tried and really liked, have you tried Rose´ in a can? Would you? Think it could be cute in a big tub filled with ice for a party! 6. A NEW STATIONER YOU. NEED TO KNOW ABOUT. Nearly fell over from the beauty when I saw these invitations, gorgeous!! I wish I had a reason to order these, maybe throw myself a birthday party:) Stone Cottage Paparie’s website is in progress of being launched but in the meantime you can follow her on Instagram by clicking here. 7. SUNDAY’S SURVEY I had someone laughing the other day because I told her I had never used Uber, you would have thought i told her I never left my house:) Granted this is more common if you live in or near a big city but with my phobias, there is no way I would consider using an Uber. Rational? Maybe not but it’s me and my quirks My kids however use them all the time and there is no mistaking that they have made life a heck of a lot easier for throngs of people (sans their recent scandals) but I was impressed by how they “owned” their mistakes and rose to the occasion by confronting them head on, more companies should take their lead. So….have you ever “uber’ed” and if not would you? Have you taken Uber? Click all that apply- That is a wrap for this Sunday, anything catch your attention here? Always appreciate you stopping in, and love hearing from you. I love hearing how reading my Sunday post is part of your Sunday routine, for me it’s the same. I love putting these together. Thanks for stopping in, wishing you a wonderful and enjoyable day and end to your weekend! LAST DAY for the Provence planter sale- many are sold which is no surprise given the incredible prices but we still have some left, click here to see the sale.
