iHi and happy Sunday. Prepared this a few days ahead of time so hope it posts on time. Finally starting to feel a bit better after being cooped up for over a week with the dreadful flu. Near the end and everything has new meaning. Even going to a market or CVS seems thrilling:) Amazing how something like getting sick changes your perspective! I want to acknowledge all the veterans who have so unselfishly given their lives to our country and afforded us the luxury of freedom that we all get to enjoy. To me, there is no greater hero. I am in awe of all the brave men and women who have served and am forever grateful. We surely know that without them, we are nothing. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend, it is hard to believe we are less than 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving and dare I say only about 6 weeks away from Christmas…scary! We are planning to spend Thanksgiving in Palmetto Bluff if all goes according to plan. OK onwards to my post this weekend…. _____________________________________________ 1 A LIVING ROOM CONCEPT This is so ridiculously premature but I have myself dreaming of my future living room. I am chomping at the bit to embark on a design project but until our renovation is complete, my hands are tied and all I can do for now, is just dream and make up mood boards! I have always loved the combination of blue and white with a rich mossy green. So I am seeing a big long sofa in a soft blue with bouillon fringe (not this exact sofa but do love the color) with some beautiful velvet pillows in green, a potted palm, pretty botanicals framed in a bamboo frame, our fretwork brackets holding our jars, etc….I am also thinking a beautiful diamond or herringbone oversized sisal rug. I love the juxtaposition of a formal setting with the informality but sophistication of a textured rug with a geometric design. Just a concept here but I am kind of loving it….. 2 A FEW FAVORITE FALL PIECES My favorite season is here and slowly my soft cotton tops and sundresses are being replaced with pretty cashmere sweaters, light jackets and other fall favorites. I have added a few things to my wardrobe lately, classics that stand the test of time….. Adore this vest from Barbour, such a classic piece that can easily be layered. Click here Just ordered this sweater from Tuckernuck, it has everything I love, navy and white, brass buttons, bell sleeve…great looking! Click here I try to avoid heels at all costs but when I do wear them, its almost always a slingback. I have Chanel slingback in a few colors that have stood the test of time (as in several years). These by Veronica Beard are great, I love the lower heel so they can be worn casually and a lot less expensive especially when you factor in the fact that that are a classic that you will own for years and years!

She is a customer and acquaintance who is so so lovely. She has invited me to her home and I absolutely cannot wait to take her up on it. I love everything about her and if you love old world tradition, then you will so enjoy this video tour! Could listen to her voice all day long, it reminds me of my sweet mom:) Anyhow about this bathroom? I might never leave! 5 A FEW NEW POSSIBILITIES Would love your opinion on a few possible new additions to the line. Brass ormolu bases for jars and ginger jars can really elevate a piece to the next level. I am considering adding these, as I think they are beautiful and would love your opinion! Would do them in a few styles and sizes. What I love about them is that they can really elevate a jar, here is what I mean- \ Thought on these beautiful ormolu stands? Thought on these beautiful ormolu stands? I am thinking of adding these pretty prints to the ship with these wonderful gold bamboo frames, thoughts? Thoughts on these art prints in bamboo frames?

When she was selected to design this charmer in Williamsburg, she went to town with her talents. I am so in love with all of these incredibly beautiful holiday touches, makes me want to get busy on my end!Click here to read the entire article over at Flower Magazine. 7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY For those who celebrate Christmas, curious as to when you will put up your tree. I generally vow to put it up earlier and earlier every year but rarely do, though this year I am thinking and hoping I will get it up right after Thanksgiving (early for me). How about you? When do you plan to put up your Christmas tree this year? ________________________________________________ Our Veterans Day Sale is on as of Sunday morning. 25% off site wide!
