Hello and happy Sunday. Well, last Sunday I was in PB and sure wish I was back now but it just makes me look that much forward to my next visit. Hope you are having a great weekend, here we go with my Seven on Sunday……. __________________________ 1 THE MAKING OF A CHANEL JACKET. I found these two videos so fascinating. I remember when I bought my first Chanel suit, it was akin to crossing something off my bucket list. I felt like a million dollars in it and I am only a few pounds away from being able to wear it again…woo hoo! They are classics that are not only so beautiful, so well made but clothing that stands the test of time. These videos will show you just how involved creating and sewing a single jacket is and a bit about the incredible history behind this iconic brand….pretty fascinating! 2 A TALENTED CUSTOMER SHOWS US HOW TO MIX RUSTIC AND FORMAL. I got these pictures in and was wowed by how my customer so beautifully mixed the two styles of sophisticated rustic with a more formal vibe in her exquisite mountain home. What a match made in mixing heaven! Just look at how she used the silver planters and mini table lamps! 3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST What a roundup this weekend, so much beauty out there to share, I take finding the very best very seriously:) 4. A VIDEO TOO CUTE TO NOT SHARE. I shared this darling little girl, Mila with you a few months ago. She has since come out with a precious video all about my favorite season, fall. Apparently she doesn’t share my love for fall but this is really cute nevertheless……. 5. A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR BAR. I am not a big drinker at all but seriously this could change the game all together:) It is almost scary how much I like this! I LOVE the rose and grapefruit infused vodka by Ketel One either with Pellegrino, tonic water or a grapefruit flavored sparkling. I have tried all the flavors and this is to me, hands down is the best. Add a twist of lime and then a few berries or whatever kind of fruit you have on hand and you seriously have the most delicious cocktail, I also like that it’s not at all sweet but incredibly delicious! I have tried the other flavors but this one hands down wins the blue ribbon! Cannot tell you how good this is! 6. ENCHANTED HOME SHOP NEWS. OK lots going on here…..Christmas ornaments and Christmas paper is in production. Stay tuned soon for a presale offering special pricing to be holiday ready. Pumpkins out of production and en route! I will have a presale on these beauties in a week or so, a must have for anyone who loves to decorate for the holidays, they came out so beautiful, I may need to leave them out year round! A new container of beautiful chinoiserie tole is soon finishing up here is a sneak peek mid production- These fabulous monogrammed trays are the ultimate gift, this is the newest batch en route for some lucky customers! And thrilled to announce that our gorgeous blue/white porcelain pumpkins are done and on their way! Just love the way they came out (a presale will be offered in about week or so) These will be so special to keep forever and bring out every fall/Thanksgiving…..pretty enough to leave out year round! I can see them now on my kitchen island displayed with mums…such an elegant way to welcome fall! The ornaments are in production. We are excited to be introducing a bunch of new style ornaments (mostly ginger jars and Staffordshire dogs), many we don’t have pictures of yet. But here are a few of the ornaments that are mid production (some tweaks have been done) but this gives you some idea Three of the 8 new ornaments (these are not the final version as we tweaked them a bit) but you get the idea- And to many of you who have asked a big fat YES to getting back the darling 3″ gift toppers, will get in three styles this year! The ornaments make the best favors. We are doing these favors for a customer for the Laurtizen Garden/Antiques Show coming up, don’t these make the prettiest favors! 7. SUNDAY’S SURVEY. OK this is for all you empty nesters out there. How is possible that seeing a sports game in play as I pass a school, namely my sons old school or see a gaggle of nervous middle schoolers on their way to school, that I almost start crying! You would think after my son graduating FOUR years ago I would not be affected like his anymore but nope, these signs of my “old life” still get to me. I really really miss it:( I do hope I have company otherwise maybe I need therapy lol. I really thoguht at this point in my life I would be celebrating this new found freedom. It could be because I am young to have all three of my boys all grown up and out of the nest or it could be that I am relegated to being an eternal hopeless sap:) So if you are an empty nester or even close…do you still react this way? If you are an empry nester which best describes best how you feel about it- _____________________________ There you have my Seven on Sunday, anything here pique your interest? As always, thanks for stopping in. Hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful weekend as we slowly sashay our way into FALL! Crazy, isn’t it that summer is pretty much already over. Oh well, no complaints here as I just love the season of fall and everything that comes along with it…….bring it on!
