Elegant Halloween Table, Gold & Cream!

October 13, 2017

I have been collecting gold and cream pieces for the holiday season.    It started after my love affair with green kicked in this fall, and I felt that it would be really pretty to set a gold and green table.   This is the evolution of said project, and it has melted into cream and gold, which I feel is softer, very elegant and sophisticated without feeling too stuffy.   You could easily replace the pumpkins for feathers (and maybe pinecones)…

Wow Your Neighbors With These Festive Decorations!

October 12, 2017

I am definitely getting into the holiday spirit!  This time last year we were sneaking out for our first date and evening without the baby.  Will’s birthday falls at the end of the week and I remember sitting in the restaurant fretting about leaving our little one behind, perhaps drinking a bit too much wine to make up for my anxiety ;).  This year, our baby is racing around and it is such fun to take the holiday decorations over…

Walls of Bougainvillea

May 25, 2017

France is in bloom right now!  After a day of stocking up on supplies and running errands for our guest arrivals on Friday, Will and I headed out for a sunset walk and a leisurely glass of wine in a nearby town.  We were amazed by an apparently endless sea of walls of Bougainvillea.  As I mentioned in my previous post, this seems to be prime time for French flowers.  Forgive me if these photos are a total overload, I just wanted…
