~ Fancy Finery ~

Splurging on an old 1922 fashion magazine this weekend
gave me the perfect springboard to create two envelopes
for special friends.
Special goodies to be tucked inside...bliss!

~ Shabby Chic Interiors ~

I admit I was sceptical about the new Rachel Ashwell book, Shabby Chic Interiors. Was it a ploy to scoop in some last minute income in the midst of a breakdown of her company? But nothing could be farther from the truth. Each page is beautiful, bringing home the lesson that even in the midst of her personal sadness, she sticks true to her principles and ideals.

~ Farewell To Summer ~

What a great summer it was (sigh). We topped it off a few weeks
ago with a trip to New York City.
I found this gorgeous outdoor flower market in a small neighborhood.

Life is good...
