Hello there friends! Can you believe its Memorial Day weekend! Unfortunately for us here in NY, the weekend is going to be a bit of a bust weather wise. We may be able to salvage Monday but Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be unusually cool with rain. Changes some things like going on our friends boat but it’s fine. If it turns out to be a lazy weekend with just dinner plans with friends and entertaining on Monday, that works for me! I have had a super stressful week. You would almost have to be living under a rock to not know or have heard about the craziness with the supply/demand chain and how every business has been impacted. The world of logistics worldwide have been stretched to unprecedented levels. Container shipping has gone up a whopping 214%!!! Really crazy stuff. We have not raised our prices but like everyone else we may have to within the next month if things do not change fast. Then, getting our items here which has aged me at least 20 years is a whole other circus! I think there is light at the end of this very dark tunnel but it has been a challenge and certainly not for the faint of heart:) I like to share recent happenings in life through my photos via these posts every few weeks. Granted, still not doing anything terribly exciting (not vaccinated) but I like to find the beauty and value in even the smallest things, so here it goes- __________________________________________ Nothing like a big spray of beautiful lilac to walk into…these are our faux as are very good ones (from out shop, they come in lavender and white). No water. No mess:) Enjoyed our second al fresco meal in one week…what a treat! BTW all melamine today only is 30% off…perfect time to stock up on your summer favorites! Our mini bud vases are so perfect for centers of tables, I am really enjoying using them This heavenly mint salad is divine, wills hare recipe on Sunday! This is all you need for one delicious cocktail, choose your flavor of sparkling Italian soda, lots of fresh lie, a splash of Rose and grapefruit vodka and fill glass with ice, so good~ Finally someone did what I always said should be one. One bag- lemons and limes, thanks Whole Foods! And here she is, “The Summertini” Adore these! Every flower looks great in them:) This salmon is so good! I posted the recipe last Sunday, click here to see. Dinner is served! So in love with these new chinoiserie glass hurricanes which double as a fabulous vase (on our arrival sale which ends tonight, click here) See what I mean! I love being inside during a rainstorm caught this picture the other night just as it was moving in Loving our wicker colored planters in every color!! We currently have 10″ and 12″ in stock (click here to see) The rhododendrons are in full bloom and so so pretty! Love seeing everything in bloom:) Just a pretty golden hour shot of my dining room and below in my foyer Friend sent me this absolutely darling blue/white sanitizer spray , isn’t this the cutest! I should have thought of that:) Think its from Two’s Company All the cushions have come out of their winter hibernation, time to start bringing out the pillows and other accessories Another al fresco table..on perfect weather nights, we must take advantage. Shown here is our pagoda melamine How pretty are these flowers!
