Thoughts for Today


Wow, it is hot out today! 
Not that it hasn't been for the past few weeks or won't be for the next couple of months but really, 96 on June 7th is too much. We are in for a loong stifling  summer, what is a gal to do? 
Well, if I had a super swanky pool like the one in the image above... I can assure you friends I would be happy as a clam, swimming like a dolphin (mermaid) and performing tricks for all of you!
In the meantime I will have to settle for my plastic pool from Wal-Mart and the tricks my  children never cease to amaze me with, hence the helmets...safety first!


I have been out and about the last couple of days, seen a few treasures, ordered some lovelies for clients, and came across a few delicious finds. It is only appropriate for me to share all my splendid goodies with you.

Lovelies I have ordered

Yes turquoise chandelier I adore you and am so glad I have found you a home! 



Regal and sophisticated, just perfect for a guest bedroom fit for a king.



This handmade beauty is too much for me, glitter antlers with lashes as sweet as the baby girl it is for, mi amore!



Treasures around town

Uuum yes, a great adorable side table...less than $50
Steal


This guy is awesome, a wooden carved turtle, unique, statement piece, and needs a home.
Bargain!


Dropped by the local J Crew and fell in like with this for my little love...every girl needs a caftan of sorts.


Delicacies from the web


How awesome are these prints from Etsy and yes they even have little ole Raleigh, NC. What a great gift.



My friend Kristen over at Summer in Newport dished in a recent post on the recent availability to purchase illustrator Caitlin McGauley's chic prints. The signed limited edition illustrations in Giclee on watercolor paper are gorgeous and I for one would love to have one. You may recognize Caitlin's work from Lonny magazine's blog feature Watercolor Wednesdays
