Happy New Years Eve! Celebrate Safe! But Have FUN!!

Charming to Say the Least.

Some things are merrier and brighter. Yet, a wee bit unattainable in this world for a simple yet stylish creature such as moi. The small colorful dangling acorn shaped stones are exquisite on this chain bracelet by Tamara Comolli {but, what are they?}. And the 18K rose gold chain makes it that much more feminine and soft. Can be yours for $37K…. Merry Christmas!

Weber Ain’t Got Nothin’ On This.

Move over Weber. At least for Christmas. Eva Solo’s Glove BBQ Grill is one sexy beast and sure to dress up any porch, patio or perch for fashionable grilling. The integrated stainless-steel lid on this handsome, globe-shaped kettle grill can slide open and closed to protect grilling grub from the elements. The black bottom half is made of aluminum. At $595, it may be a bit more then you would like to spend on a steak searing machine… but some of you gift givers might like it hot.

My Pom Obsession.

For those of you who want to chew on some pomegranate seeds without the seedy mess {oh, but it is so much fun to pull one apart in search of those small apartments of snuggled pom seeds!}… let me introduce you to my newest fresh food love. I could seriously eat a few cups of these lil fresh arils a day. Gotta love the simple spoon and clean hands post snack attack.

Parent Rap.

With baby on the brain, I’m googoo gaga over anything child related that is sent my way {hold on the junk snail mail that’s filling my mailbox!}. Just got this video from my sister. Bring it kiddo!

Happy Monday!

I am Fast Becoming a Pinning Machine.

This weekend, I have a lot of catching up to do on my social media side of life… networking and blogging of course. I’m fast becoming a pinning addict at Pinterest. It’s so darn easy to save a picture and link from any webpage. Much easier to organize then my piles of tear-sheets and tear-outs throughout my home and office. I also find it a great tool for my clients to pull together their own preferred tastes and style to help my design firm navigate specific projects with greater direction. It’s a Win Pin Win situation! For those of you “pinterested” in what’s on my Boards, check out my Pins!

Light as a Feather, Strong as a Bag.

My husband can vouch that I’m quite the talented acquirer of any kind of soft storage sack with one or two straps. Totes, satchels, cross-bodies, you name it. I want it. I’ve yet to place my order for one {or all four colors}, but this Air Tote Bag from Meet Me Here is on my immediate bag radar list.

It would have been excellent for days at the beach and even a catchall for weekly dry-cleaning. With a baby on the way, I also imagine it carrying those odds and ends that seem to overflow the typical tote. Inspired by Japanese origami, these simple bags are made from remnant mesh and vegetable tanned leather. They measure about 16″ x 20″ x 4″ so they are perfect lightweight carry all for your everyday needs.

 And the leather straps dress up the simple mesh fabric. Now, which color should I designate for fabric samples from the Design Center… which for baby toys?

Just a Thought.
