Happy first day of spring! I’ve added quite a few items to my wish list as we prepare for warmer days ahead. For me: Virginia Johnson’s lobster print tote for the Maine getaway we’re planning this summer; a statement ring in the most gorgeous shade of jade; flats to satisfy my craving for all things neon. For my home: One of my favorite fabrics of all time, Fig Leaf, by Peter Dunham; the perfect shade for my vintage tortoise glass lamps; a moroccan inspired rug for the living room; anything and everything Roberta Roller Rabbitt, especially this kurta cover up.
Stockings were one of the things I dropped the ball on this year in our holiday decorations. I was so excited to hang one for each of us (pup included!) from the fireplace mantle but I just never found the right stockings. At home, we use personalized stockings hand knit by my Nana. They’re stretched from years of being stuffed with gifts, but it only adds to their character. These stockings from Roberta Roller Rabbit and Circa Trade may not have the years of family history, but I’m still a huge fan and would happily hang them from our mantle. Maybe next year!
Do you hang stockings for the holidays? Passed down or store bought? I’d love to know!
Hello, hello! I’m back from my Thanksgiving induced food coma and ready to give this blog some much needed attention! I hope you all had a wonderful time with family and loved ones and scored a deal or two for yourself this weekend. I promise this is the last you’ll hear about my Thanksgiving table but I thought I’d share a picture of the finished product for anyone interested. The round dining table wasn’t exactly ideal for the festivities but I listened to my inner Tim Gunn chanting “Make it work!”
Looking forward to getting back in the swing of things!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I’m feeling inspired by Roberta Roller Rabbit’s delightfully bright table tops. I just ordered a set of six gin orange napkins and can’t wait to pair them with my Morella Ave dinner plates. Throw in some bright pink taper candles in vintage brass candlesticks and I think we’ve got an equally bright table!
I’m headed home to the Cape in a few weeks and one of the things I’m most excited about is lobster fresh off my Uncle’s boat. Seafood just isn’t the same for me down here in D.C. I think this would be the perfect table setting for my lobster feast. Aren’t the placemats from Pomegranate, Inc. gorgeous? They’ve been on my “to-buy” list for the longest time. I should probably hurry up before summer’s over!
