Good Sunday morning to you, hope this finds you doing well. Another very quiet weekend, but I am getting lots of little projects done inside the house, a silver lining to be sure. And finding longer stretches of free time on the weekend to do things like play with flowers and rearrange things around the house:) Got pretty much all Christmas decor down but the tree remains, I am no rush to take it down. I love seeing it and it’s surely not hurting anyone. Sunday has turned into a stay at home and cook day. I love it because either my boys will come to us or we will go to them (with dinner)! Since the pasta fagiole soup is everyone’s fave I have made it 3 Sundays in a row and it always is a home run (click here for recipe). So toady making it the 4th Sunday in a row and am also going to make a big salad with some kind of a protein. We have so much happening at Enchanted Home including a very exciting collaboration, once things are definite I will announce it. Tons of beautiful new things coming in, it feels like Christmas in January. One perk of the pandemic was giving me plenty of “think time” to dream up all kinds of new pretty things. I couldn’t be more pleased with how it is all turning out and look forward to sharing every bit of it with you. Tues. we will hold our first tabletop arrival sale for the container that just arrived and this one is truly exceptional, as in showstopping, you will not be disappointed:) Onward we go to this weeks Seven on Sunday __________________________________________ 1 BREAKFAST IN BED, ANYONE? So I have been on the hunt for a great wicker breakfast tray. I found two but they were “antique” aka used and ratty looking so I did what I often do and set out to create my own! Who doesn’t love a good breakfast tray afterall:) Maybe to some its old fashioned, but to me, its a timeless classic that needs to be kept alive! So we will be in introducing this in 4 colors and I am already planning my first meal in bed:) Here is a picture taken at the warehouse of the first sample, the tray is removable and there is storage on either side for magazines, a book, remote, etc…..cannot wait:) 2 A MOVIE WE CANNOT WAIT TO SEE! We are watching this tonight and I have been anticipating this movie for a while. It’s a new release and in theaters but can be seen on Apple TV which is of course what we will be doing love that this is now an option! Since I know I was most definitely born int he wrong era, being able to “go back” and escape into these kinds of movies is for the ultimate (especially now)! This is such a “me” movie with two supremely talented actors headlining, Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel. I will be sure to report back, have a feeling I will love it! 3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST Such a stunning round up this weekend and let’s face it I think we all need to see and find the beauty and inspiration wherever we can find it, given the almost surreal turmoil of our world right now. Enjoy! 4 OUR AMAZING HOUSE AND NOW PET TRAYS. These continue to be a huge huge hit and with good reason, they are so incredible special.

This makes me so wish Covid was a distant memory, I would totally copy this and invite 4 or 5 close friends over for a luncheon to celebrate Valentines Day with my favorite gals:) Makes me so miss entertaining and setting a pretty table! This is so elegant and looks like the kind of small intimate meal that allows for hours and hour so of lively conversation, laughter and creating special memories.

Stopped by my local market and found beautiful tulips and had a little flower “session”. Experimented with them a few ways and just love the way they look in our new mini blue and white vases, a real pick me up! My front seat never looked so pretty:) I really wanted to fill our fabulous new wicker hexagonal planter with these and attempted an arrangement however didn’t have oasis and the flowers were not cooperating, yet there was something perfectly imperfect about how this looked, I liked that it kind of took a life of it’s own. This fabulous new wicker planter is now as of today online (click here) So then I took the tulips out, and replaced it with an orchid and it was a perfect pairing- Then in the end, decided to put them in a bunch of our new mini blue bud vases and just couldn’t have loved the end result more:) Added them to my dining room mantle and they looked perfect- Click here to see our five piece collection of mini vases Lastly do not underestimate the power of simple daisies. These are TWO weeks old and still going strong! Adore them in our large Mimi vase and in our silver mint juleps Click here to see our Mimi vase 7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY Since last March our lives have been impacted in so many profound ways, some of us more than others. Some I realize have lost loved ones due to Covid and others have had to watch those they love suffer with this terrible disease. It is funny how your perspective changes on things over time. When you can’t do something anymore, it makes the longing for that said “thing” that much deeper. There are a number of things I miss- travel, socializing with friends and family, weddings, parties, dinners, going to restaurants,even the human touch of greeting a friend with hug. The other day one of my favorite french songs came on the radio, La Vie En Rose and I immediately got teary eyed (I often react this way to certain songs when it triggers a special memory) and was taken back to the last time my husband and I were in Paris and what fun we had exploring the antique markets, visiting with relatives, driving to Avignon, it now seems like a lifetime ago. Things were so much calmer, more peaceful and certainly our world was healthier! It made me realize travel is one thing I think I actuality miss the most. So here is my question to you, which two things do you miss the most since Covid invaded our lives? Which two things do you miss the most and can’t wait to get back to since Covid? ________________________________ Well this was a fun post to put together, hope you enjoyed it.

I am gearing up for a super busy week ahead so going to enjoy a relaxing day at home and can’t wait to watch The Man Who Knew Infinity tonight! Thanks for stopping in and making TEH part of your Sunday routine. Until next time….. Which two things do you miss the most and can’t wait to get back to since Covid?
