Well, hi you. Finally got my computer fixed so I'll be back with more regular posts. In the meantime, Happy Valentine's Day.... xo...

Technical Difficulties

Hi to you! I seem to have encountered a crash of sorts and am trying to get all of my photos restored. Staying calm, breathing deeply, Apple Genius Bar here I come.  So please stay tuned... Just wanted to let you know 🙂 xo s...

It’s Negroni Week + Some Bar Ideas + a Cocktail Recipe or two!

I bet you didn't know it's Negroni week? I didn't either! But once I found out AND since it's one of my favorite cocktails (tied with a Gimlet) I thought I would pass on the info as well as some bar inspiration to you! Negroni Week launched as a...

The Art of Art Collecting

Hi sweet people. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. There has been some nasty weather in parts of the US this week, so if you happen to be in one of them, hopefully you are inside, warm and toasty. Watching the snow fall. Sipping a hot mug of something. With a...

Things I’m Digging – Fall 2014 – Reading Edition

Hi lovelies. As I write this, it's raining buckets. I have the fireplace going and am wearing the requisite rainy day attire of fuzzy socks and a big sweater. Not only is it Halloween, AND the San Francisco Giants Parade, but it's also my birthday weekend....

Fall Entertaining and Amber Glass

My birthday is in a couple of weeks. I decided to have friends over but not tell them it’s my birthday. I just wanted to bask in the glow of being around those who I hold nearest and dearest. Plus, I needed an excuse to have a party! The Food There is a local caterer...

Postcards from the Hamptons

After almost a 30-year lapse, this August I revisited the place of many idyllic childhood memories.  Me and the kiddos rented a little house in East Hampton for a few weeks. The first half it was just us, the latter part friends joined. It was pure heaven in...

FarmHouseUrban – Update – The Landscaping is Finished!

It's finally done! Let me show you around...  Looking out from the kitchen doors to the gravel patio. We may add a barbeque later to the corner closest to the door. It's been stubbed with a gas and electric line, so it will be easy to add. The arbor is...

FarmHouseUrban – Update – Landscaping

Well hi beauties. I have much to share with you. For starters, Luke graduated from high school last week. I held it together (for the most part) during the ceremony, but before and after...yikes, I should own stock in Kleenex.  My second big news - and i...

Shopping Heaven – Roberta Roller Rabbit

Well hi you... Long time since last post, I know. Besides being incredibly busy at work (LOVE-ing my current projects!), this past month I've been biting my nails as the college letters arrived on a daily basis. I am thrilled to announce that our son Luke has made...

Pick It Up And Don’t Put It Down

**Note: I wrote this on Sunday, and then thought twice about publishing it... I just read Vicki Archer's blog - French Essence (one of my must reads despite the number of unread emails that pile up). Anyway, today she wrote a very inspiring post about weight loss...

About Me

The space we call home is a reflection of who we are. Each of us deserves to live in an environment that nurtures and provides comfort and peace. Creating a home and a life you love starts with surrounding yourself with things and people that make you happy. It’s not about fancy things or being perfect, it’s about appreciating the beauty that is accessible to us all. This blog is my journal for celebrating the all the beautiful things that inspire me. I hope you will visit often and will be inspired too!
