Hello everyone and happy Sunday to you. We were able to get to PB last week for about a week and it was really nice be back there. Now it’s back in NY and back to business on a very part time basis. It’s such a strange time as I am trying to keep everything we have on order on track (daunting task) while all aspects of the shipping world have almost come to a halt. Thankfully, more than half of our scheduled shipments have arrived/are arriving within 2 weeks so I am thanking my lucky stars! The only other one that is delayed is our big tabletop shipment (we got half of it) and the other half will be here mid June. I am praying as summer starts, things will slowly back to somewhat normal. Today, it’s all about a continuation of operation closet clean out. I am purging and it feels so good. I have even attempted to tackle the attic, as I would go up there and not come out for weeks, lol. That is for another time, but in the meantime with all our staying at home, there is no excuse to not get things a little more organized. Of course this sounds easy then as I am ready to begin, I often get distracted with other things:) Will do my best, onto this Sunday’s post- _____________________________________________ 1 A BEAUTIFUL HOME I love the vibe of this pretty home. So nicely done and beautifully curated. Not too big, looks cozy yet sophisticated. Just a beautiful, elegant but still intimate ambiance in each and every room, click here for more information over at Atlanta Homes Magazine. 2 A FEW RECENT CUSTOMER PHOTOS You know how much I love getting your pictures featuring items that you have purchased from me. It gives me such a thrill to see how you style various items in your beautiful homes. Suffice to say, my customers are incredibly talented!! Here are some recent pictures I received, all so beautiful! Have one to send in? You can send it to [email protected] 3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST Always such a bevy of beautiful Instagrams to share with you. One well that will never run dry:) Love the beauty and inspiration particularly now…during an uncertain time, it is a very welcome sight. Realized these are very heavy on the flowers, afterall it is the season for them! 4 NANCY MEYER’S GREAT MOVIE KITCHENS. I am a huge fan of Nancy Meyers. Some of my favorite feel good movies are all from uber talented Nancy Meyers. She has a true gift for creating movie sets that are equal parts beautiful and welcoming homey vibes. Every kitchen in every movie she has done has me saying “I could imagine living there”. Funny enough in the last two weeks I have seen three of these films (probably for the 20th time) Baby Boom, It’s Complicated and Somethings’s Gotta Give, all favorites. Here are seven as seen over at Town and Country (click her for full article) 5 A DRIVE BY ART SHOW? Leave it up the ingenuity of an artist to think outside the box when having to shelter in place. I love this story…52 artists located on the “east end” of Long Island got together to create a “drive by” art show to share with the public. Warren Niedich the brains behind this idea, said it was a way to show solidarity. People went in cars, bikes and on foot to see various expressions of art exhibited by both well known artists and complete novices. I love this idea!

I combined my #6 and Sunday’s Survey as I have a few mini polls I really need your help with. Well many of you have asked for green/white porcelains and tulipieres, and this is a very pretty start if I say so myself. Say hello to the green/white village scene tulipiere! I would love your opinion on this…I happen to love it and can so see this on both a beautiful summer alfresco table but can also imagine it filled with red flowers for Christmas! These pictures were taken at the warehouse so they are not great, but it certainly gives you an idea. Would love your thoughts. I had samples made with both patterns- the village scene (first one shown) and the original style (last one). Greens are still being debated. So here is the village scene shown in a green then below it, shown in a darker green- Thoughts on introducing a green tulipiere? The medium green- The same tulipiere in a darker green- For the village scene do you like the lighter or the darker green? And then had the original style done in another green, liking the style but think the actual green needs some tweaking- Please provide your input by answering the two polls underneath as well as decisions are being made as we speak! Thoughts on this original style green tulipiere? Which style do you prefer (not paying attnetion the green) but just style? ___________________________________________ That’s a wrap for this Sunday. Hope you enjoyed the post. And hope you are staying safe. I know different parts of our country are experience different levels of “openness”. Here in NY, things will be pretty much closed down until mid June so the quarantine life continues. Only difference is the weather has been very nice so it is giving people reasons to get outdoors, which makes a big difference. Went to a nursery yesterday which was such a treat but seeing everyone in their masks, bandannas, etc…is a sight I will never ever get used to. Seeing signs like “no mask , no service” are commonplace here and it’s just still surreal in that regard though I understand, necessary. Keep trying to find those “silver linings” and I guess seeing my trunk filled with flowers was one of them. Thanks for stopping in, wishing everyone a wonderful day! Stay safe, until next time…….
