Here, there are subtle whispers of fall. Every now and then I see a leaf turning and the weather is more consistently in the 70’s now, works for me! I love it because I adore fall. How about you? Anxious for a new season or is it difficult to say goodbye to summer? Today, doing a little photo session and really looking forward to the mens final of the US Open. Yesterday was the women’s final and it was really something, 18 and 19 year old powerhouses vying for the title. I so miss playing tennis, with my ankle still healing from a slight fracture, I am very limited in what I can do. I wasn’t exactly sad to hear no exercise but no tennis or riding is a real bummer. Hope whatever you are up to is relaxing and enjoyable on this Sunday. Here we go with my Seven on Sunday…. ___________________________________________ 1 OUR 2022 CALENDAR WITH GIDDY PAPERIE IS NOW ON PRESALE! Look no futher for the most beautiful desktop calendar ever.

Go figure, they make more than my favorite soap! I have dry hair so this was ultra nourishing, the formula is rich and silky so a little goes a long way. They have a fan in me!

Model Jasmine Tooks got married and pictures of her wedding went viral on social media and with good reason. The pictures literally took my breath away. My favorite kind of gown, traditional and proper, so in love with her dress. I am not a big fan of these super revealing gowns you see often. This is so classically gorgeous, literally fit for a princess. And then the plethora of white flowers…just wow! Thought this was most definitely worth sharing!

Got the samples of our exquisite new hydrangea garden melamine and what can I say, I am smitten! I can already see a party based upon these, just adore them. There will be four different hydrangea designs on each salad plate, and we will also be offering a coordinating charger (didn’t get that yet) but placed them on our pierced charger and love the effect. We are still making some minor, final changes to these but this gives you the idea. These will be available sometime in November/December, way ahead of the spring season, should be here in plenty of time for Christmas gift giving. As you can see we got sample pieces in both the blue and the green version. Colors are slightly off here as these were taken in the warehouse but you get the idea. Love them with our pierced charger! Now I need your opinion. I am torn between doing just the blue or adding the green option too. I like the green far more than I expected to. Minimums for melamine are very very large, yet I do think this will be very popular. Thoughts on just the blue blue or also adding the green? One fun thing to keep in mind is that they are interchangeable, you can use blue dinner plates with green salad and vice versa. As always, greatly appreciate your feedback. Thoughts on adding the blue hydrangea melamine or adding the green as well?

Aren’t these the cutest! I want to have a small party or luncheon/dinner just so I can make these. I am obsessing over them. Here are a few ideas and I found a really reasonable source for where to find these (see after the pictures) boards in case you are on board with this idea too:) In our Covid era, these are so practical too, individual servings, makes perfect sense. And then they are take home favors…brilliant! And here is the resource I found, click here If you do this, you need to tell me how they came out! 7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY If the travel fairy came to you today and said you can leave tomorrow headed anywhere that your heart desires (and it would be Covid free) where would you be jetting off to? Yes, this is my way of reliving travel days to satisy my self induced wanderlust. Always fun to dream!
