Hi there everyone, hope this finds you well and enjoying a nice weekend, after all its the holy grail for all football fans across the country, Superbowl Sunday! Admittedly I am not a huge football fan but always tune in to the big game because it almost feels antiAmerican not to do so:) Plus my son is the most diehard football fan I know, so I am also doing it for him! He is a seriously devoted Chiefs fan but what do I know, I say let the best team win. The other night I spent hours going through the earliest blog posts way back in 2011. It literally brought tears to my eyes. I remember those early blogging days so well when it was just taking off and the wonderful community of fellows bloggers I met (mostly online) but some in “real life”. It was a different time. I had all kind of warm fuzzy thoughts reading over those posts and am going to soon devote a post to this very subject in the coming week, so stay tuned…. Meanwhile here is my Seven on Sunday for this week- ____________________________________________ 1 FUN FACT ABOUT OUR NEW HOUSE! Had dinner with friends the other night and she asked me if I knew our current house was featured in the movie Side Effects with Jude Law. Had seen the movie and did not k now that! It is approx 1 hour and 29 minutes into the movie and is featured as the former Greenwich estate of the main character, I love how they did a beautiful party in the side yard with white wicker. Gives me some ideas:) It starts with sailboat scene FYI. If you are interested in seeing it, its on Prime. 2 CAPOTE VS THE SWANS Started this series and it is good, scandalous and certainly entertains. But the thing I am most entertained by far, are the interiors, fashion and elegance. I am transfixed when watching it, it is so beautiful and elegant. A bygone era that will never be. Always say it and firmly believe it…..I was born in the wrong era! Though they had it all, wealth, power, beauty, access…they weren’t a very happy bunch and Truman surely added fuel to that fire. There was a lot of sadness and tragedy behind the glossy facade, which is what makes this video below so interesting. If you are watching the series, are you enjoying it? Here’s an interesting video on the real women behind the glamorous gaggle known as the Swans….really interesting! 3 PASTEL LACQUER TRAYS With spring and warmer weather not too far into the distance, we are going to soon welcome all kinds of beautiful new spring items. Our instant best selling lacquerd trays are coming in a bevy of beautiful spring colors and we are adding a round tray! These will be here in about 4-5 weeks and we will, as we always do hold a presale coming up in a few weeks. 4 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST A random group of beautiful instagrams…. 5 MY BIGGEST SUGAR OBSESSION Ever since I discovered this outrageously talented cake artisan, Soocake_ully. I was obsessed and continue to be. I have shared her work before. She is based in Korea and I am in absolute awe of what she does with sugar. I have never seen such beautiful lifelike flowers in the form of confectionary perfection. Here is just a sampling of her work. Click here to go down a rabbit hole and see the unbelievable creations she has made…really hard to believe these are sugar and not freshly cut flowers! 6 A FABULOUS HOME TOUR IN BIRMINGHAM Wow I loved this one, its a three for one. Three fabulous Birmingham homes in one video. The first two are my personal faves. The best of old and new, love the homeowners thoughts on creating a home. Layered with so much timeless elegance…enjoy. 7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY Well the question today was a no brainer…who are you rooting for to win the Super Bowl? And then a second question, about how and if you even celebrate. I know for some, they don’t even watch. If I am to be honest, I say “let the best team win” but I can’t say that out loud as my son would have a fit! OK…who do you think will win today? So how big is the Super Bowl in your house?
