Happy Tuesday!

I absolutely adore this picture...rustic yet beautiful, I can image having this room off of the kitchen or dining room as maybe a multipurpose storage/butler's pantry?

Hope your Tuesday is off to a wonderful start!

Live well!

The Calm Before the Storm

I'm finishing up a few last minute projects before the chaos starts later in the week.  Visiting relatives, Thanksgiving dinner x 2 and preparing for a business trip to California.  

This picture reminded me to take a little time to reflect on what this season really is.... Being thankful for all the blessings in our lives.

Enjoy the moments, live well....

Gearing up

I simply cannot believe that the holidays are upon us...

I just finished our Thanksgiving menu, and I noticed that several of our neighbors have already begun to decorate for Christmas and while doing a little shopping this weekend, I couldn't help but notice that EVERYTHING had a bit of shine and sparkle...

Have a beautiful Monday!   live well...

Swedish Influences

I am in love with the Stockholm apartment of artist and illustrator Mats Gustafson.  His mix of  grays, browns and ochers combined with his own collections of Scandinavian Modern furniture makes his part time home pure perfection.

Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday!  live well...

Something Special

images via pinterest

No better way to start off a Monday than by highlighting some of my most favorite things....over the top, glamorous, decadent, excessive and oh so beautiful...

Stay tuned for a giveaway later with our good friend Christina over at Greige!  Perfect little lovelies to compliment your holiday little black dress!


I actually have those Valentino shoes with the bow in a nude color.. I've worn them twice, but I think I love them just as much sitting on my closet shelf like a little piece of art!!

I love how each of these collections probably started with 1 item...something that spoke to the owner, stirred a memory or was the basis for a new idea. What do you collect?  I'd love to hear!

I don't know about you, but things around here are frantic...the hours turn to days and the days to weeks so fast that I can hardly keep up!  I try everyday for a few minutes to just sit and be grateful for all I have...this would be the perfect spot!

...live well!
