Hi friends, hope you are doing well. Well, I am very slowly on the mend, but it’s been a long haul. Being home for 11 days is no joke and getting old! Think I have finished all of Netflix, Prime and a good chunk of You Tube:)

Though I was in cold, dreary gray NY, in my mind,  I was in sunny, warm(er) Palmetto Bluff. I would have loved to have been able to recuperate there. Hopefully very soon! I no longer have any Covid symptoms but its turned into a head cold, so very stuffy. I am nursing myself to getting better and hopefully early this week will slowly get back on my feet.

I read and hear constantly about the uptick of so many things going around, I am going to be very mindful when I am out and about again about exposing myself. Don’t want a repeat! Anyhow, onwards to my post this Sunday….


1 CAMILLA MOSS Always fun to discover a new beautiful account especially this featuring textiles wallpaper, stationery etc..and Camilla Moss was a definite find. Love her beautiful aesthetic and that she offers such an array of wonderful products with her signature designs. Click here to find out more


2. A GREAT SERIES FOR ALL FRANCOPHILES!  Chances are many of you have already seen this but I had such fun going down a rabbit hole and spending hours watching the painstaking restoration of a beautiful French chateau. A great series on You Tube, that really helped the hours pass being home sick. It was a Godsend!

I have since found several others, which are similar,  which I am  still devouring and will be sharing those as well soon! Click here to see How To Renovate A Chateau

3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST A bevy of beauty of lovely interiors and travel, a little warm weather and a bit winter…..


4 ONE GORGEOUS HOME OK first I need to preface this by telling you this is AI generated but I mean…come on! How stunning is this?! If I owned a mountain home. in Wyoming, or Montana, this is exactly how I would love it to look! Pretty spectacular, I could move right in:)

5 BEAUTIFUL QUADRILLE Are you a fan of a print in both wallpaper and fabric in a bedroom? Typically I like a quiet bedroom but my gosh these are gorgeous…especially that first one! Makes an awfully good argument for wallpaper and fabric! As I daydream about my bedroom when our renovation is complete, I am thinking of ideas and the first one is quite inspiring. Of course love the colors, soft blues are my personal fave for a bedroom. It feels like a luxurious cocoon. All fabrics by Quadrille, click here to discover their beautiful world



6 ASPARAGUS GRUYERE   TART  I forgot how insanely good this is until I made it around Christmas time. It is really easy and oh so delicious. It can easily be made as part of a meal with a big salad. A perfect luncheon idea as well, I  got the original recipe long ago from a friend, but when I couldn’t find it, I found a nearly similar one at Hip Foodie Mom. This is GOOD!

For the tart

  • 1 to 2 sheets frozen puff pastrydefrosted
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey dijon mustard with balsamic vinegar or plain dijon mustard
  • 2 to 3 cups Gruyere cheese freshly grated (or use any white cheese you like)
  • 1 1/2 pounds medium asparagus trimmed*
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Additional toppings (optional if you wish)

  • Fresh lemon zest
  • Balsamic glaze when serving
  • Fresh pea shoots
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prep a parchment paper lined baking sheet and place the defrosted puff pastry sheets on the baking sheet, (if using TWO: overlap them just an inch in order to connect them.) Using a sharp knife, lightly score the pastry dough 1 inch in from the edges all around to mark a rectangle. Then, using a fork, pierce the dough all around in the center, not the edges. Bake the pastry dough until lightly golden, for about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pastry shell from the oven, let it sit for a minute or two and then spread on the honey dijon mustard with balsamic vinegar (or dijon mustard if that’s what you have) and then sprinkle on the Gruyere cheese.
  • *Trim the bottoms of the asparagus spears to fit crosswise inside the tart shell. Arrange them in a single layer over the Gruyere cheese, alternating ends and tips. Sprinkle on the peas if using. Brush or lightly drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake until the spears are tender, for about 20 to 25 minutes. Watch your tart while in the oven! Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Add additional toppings like the lemon zest to bright


7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY I feel like the entire country is sick or maybe my radar is on since I have been sick. But I am astounded at many people wrote me on Instagram about their own experiences with Covid, RSV, the flu, etc… I am curious about you in your neck of the woods?


We have a great deal of the day! We are down to the last batch of this gorgeous porcelain cherry blossom scalloped tray. Comes in a white gift box. Beautiful for serving, a vanity, for perfumes etc…

TODAY ONLY (no code necessary)

Glad you are on the mend. we were both sick with something; Covid, flu, RSV during the holidays. I also developed Vertigo and am still unable to walk without almost falling. On the bright side all of the family was together for the holiday. I too love all of the fixer upper chateau shows. If only we were younger. Happy New Year.

Beautiful post! I’m sorry you suffered with Covid, funny thing that most of the people I know that did not get the shots never had it but all those that boosted many times over seemed to have had it multiple times. I’d love to see a poll on that! Feel better soon!

Us too Tina! we live in the Boston area and actually had to cancel our New Year’s Eve party because not only did we both get sick but about 50% of our guest list got sick too! Not a fun start to 2024.

That asparagus tart looks so good. I’m going to have to try that. Low. all the Quadrille photos. Hope you feel better soon!

Wow that AI house! I am ready to move in:) Hope you feel better soon. Our house has had a revolving door of flu and Covid (3 kids under 10 does not help) We are on the mend but I am back to wearing a mask in crowded places, don’t want to go through that again.

That tart looks so delicious. I received my beautiful porcelain ginger jars last week from you, even better in person. Love The Enchanted Home.

Hope you feel 100% better soon. I’ve had COVID 4 times and the last two were very rough. Enjoy the snow you are probably getting and then come on back down here to Bluffton! Yesterday we were actually 70 degrees although we are a tad cooler today. I’m here in Berkeley Hall for the past 15 years and don’t miss the snow up North.

Glad you are feeling better. I know so many people who had Covid. Luckily, my family has been spared. My husband and I continue wearing masks in church, stores and out and about. We are noticing more people wearing masks. Sometimes we get strange looks, but honestly, who cares. I am having surgery in a month so I need to be extra careful. Take care.

Oh, my, how I DO RELy on your recommendations!! NICE!! Good news you are “on the mend.” Seems to be a “crap shoot” out there…to better days…franki

Thank you so much for the video “How to Renovate a Chateau” I really enjoyed watching it! Please take care, this “cold” hang’s on and keep’s coming back. Check with your Dr. for medicine. My best, and thank’s for all your wonderful posting’s.

First of all I am so glad you are recovering! I also want to thank you for deciding to continue with your blog. It is the first thing I look at when given the chance on Sundays. I don’t know how you do it all!! Thank you, thank you for sharing so much beauty with all of your readers!

So sorry you’re still not feeling well. A friend of mine had Covid for 3 weeks, hopefully you’ll be back to normal soon 🙏.
The flu and Covid are running rampant here in Florida, as well as the Detroit, Michigan area. I guess it’s time to mask up again to protect ourselves and our families from getting sick. Feel better soon!

It’s Monday Am, and thought I’d catch up on your Sunday post. I look forward to it and enjoy all the content. Thank you for sharing the French Chateau’s video series—it’s is wonderful. I’m glad to hear you’re feeling better. My mother n law was hospitalized with COVID soon after Thanksgiving and I basically spent all of December with her. Christmas was very different this year. It took a toll on her health; her balance was off; she was hallucinating and her memory was impaired for some time. We moved her to a senior living home 2 weeks ago and she is adjusting to this new realm but it has not been easy. My hubs and I have had the flu and We’re taking preventative steps not to get it again; there is definitely an uptick in COVID and Flu. We have family and friends who were sick over the holidays too. Take good care of yourself and I hope you are feeling 100% soon. Best, Fanny

I’m glad you’re on the mend. No fun being sick with anything! Like Dianne said I would like to see a poll on vaccinations. People we know that got vaccine got COVID. But no one sick with out vaccine?? It is a mystery to me…

Love your pictures! Your comments and information on where to find beautiful things is really helpful.
