Good morning to you. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful fall weekend. Will be at my parents and sisters,  by the time you read this then on a little excursion and before you. know it, Thanksgiving will be here! I personally am looking forward to turning the page to a new year. 2021 felt like an extension of 2020 with Covid still dominating then adding the outrageous shipping crisis to boot has made 2021 a year I am happy to close the door on. It has been a test of patience, perverseness and many prayers!

Right now trying to savor the beautiful season of fall, look forward to day of togetherness for Thanksgiving then it’s full steam ahead into Christmas. Onward to my post today…



1 A BEAUTIFUL ABODE I have been a long time fan of Chelsea Textiles. Have ordered their scrumptious fabrics and a bench or two. Their owner to not surprise lives in the most fabulous European manor home and it was such fun to read all about it in House and Garden UK. Here is a teaser, click here to read more.


2 SOME SPECTACULAR NEW GOODIES ON THE WAY! These are just too gorgeous to keep under wraps. I am beyond excited to get this container sometime in Dec. With the craziness of teh shipping world i am reluctant to say when in Dec. but hopefully soon enough to put a few of these under my tree:) We will hold a presale in a few weeks on this magnificen container.


Brackets coming in three scrumptius colors! Ivory, pale blue and pale green (also getting some black)

And would you feast your eyes on this new style floor planter! Major swoon over here, in two fabulous colorways! Already have several spots for these beauties!

And would you check our the beautiful new cherry blossom chinoiserie mirror in four gorgeous colors (the moss green is not shown)

Crushing on this pewter and gold

White and blue always a winner!

Figuring out where I can use the green!

5 MAGNOLIA, CITRUS AND FRESH GREENS ! I was so excited to find these pictures on my old iPad. I thought I lost them forever and wanted to be sure I put them on my blog so I have them forever!!

6 A NEW YUMMY SOUP RECIPE Forgot how good this is! It is official soup season and that means in my house I normally make soup once a week, and have enough to freeze. This recipe is from Ina Garten and heavenly good. Sever it with some crusty bread and you have yourself quite. delicious and satisfying meal!

  • Good olive oil
  • 4 ounces pancetta, ½-inch-diced
  • 1½ cups chopped yellow onions
  • 2 cups (½-inch) diced carrots (3 carrots)
  • 2 cups (½-inch) diced celery (3 stalks)
  • 2½ cups (½-inch) diced peeled butternut squash
  • 1½ tablespoons minced garlic (4 cloves)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 26 ounces canned or boxed chopped tomatoes, such as Pomi
  • 6 to 8 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups cooked small pasta, such as tubetti
  • 8 to 10 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup good dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons store-bought pesto
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat in a large, heavy pot or Dutch oven. Add the pancetta and cook over medium-low heat for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Add the onions, carrots, celery, squash, garlic, and thyme and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the vegetables begin to soften.

Add the tomatoes, 6 cups of the chicken stock, the bay leaf, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1-1/2 teaspoons pepper to the pot. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.

Discard the bay leaf. Add the beans and cooked pasta and heat through. The soup should be quite thick but if it’s too thick, add more chicken stock. Just before serving, reheat the soup, add the spinach, and toss with 2 big spoons (like tossing a salad). Cook just until the leaves are wilted. Stir in the white wine and pesto. Depending on the saltiness of the chicken stock, add another teaspoon or two of salt to taste. Serve large shallow bowls of soup with a bruschetta on top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, drizzle with olive oil, and serve hot.


7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY This will be interesting! If you could go back to any decade in your life and start anew which would it be? For me, personally hands down the 30’s. Still young but had a little wisdom, my kids were at great ages, we took so many fun family trips (they were always so eager to go) every holiday had such meaning because of their bubbling enthusiasm, it was just a really great time.I find the silver lining with each decade but the 30’s was particularly sweet. And you?

I wish you would return to displaying the Instagram pages as you once did in the bigger format. They loose their impact when they’re all crowded together.
Also, please update us on the new house you’re building in PB.
Love your blog! Thank you!

When I tried to use the code “ginger” to purchase porcelain, I was told it did not exist.

Long time follower. In the past, I loved your Sunday posts. Now they seem to becoming more and more about selling your items. While they are beautiful, I always saw 7 on Sunday as a resource for new ideas. Not so much any more.

Emily on

Tina love your blog so much! Every Sunday it is a treat to see what got your attention. Those planters, I NEED!! And the mirrors, beautiful!

Your mantle is so pretty, you have given me some great ideas as we will be hosting Christmas this year in our new home and I look to you for inspiration. Always so many good ideas, thank you!.
