toot toot

Ok, normally I'm not one to toot my own horn, so to speak. But I got a little excited this morning when I saw that I'd reached over 100,000 page views as of today, on this blog. I'm sure many bloggers get such a number of views weekly, but for little ol' me, that is kind of a big deal. :)

Thank you, everyone, from wherever you are, for taking a moment to look at my blog, and for sharing in my daydreams.

: bliss : rustic wedding

There is such a mood of tranquility about a wedding set in a forest, a farm,a vineyard, or elsewhere in the countryside. Rustic weddings seem to be having a moment now. Perhaps this trend signals a return to simpler romantic visions, of a more natural approach to life and love. Maybe, for some couples, a rustic wedding is just more within their price range than an extravagant affair would be. I especially like seeing touches of luxury juxtaposed with modest settings, like a gorgeous ballgown worn in a field full of wildflowers. How lovely....

Wouldn't it be lovely to have an egg chair like this?


Alberta Ferretti Spring 2012 RTW

I'm in love with the gauzy 1920s-inspired spring 2012 line by Alberta Ferretti. Every look has an easy elegance. Just perfect for warm sunny days and balmy evenings. (All images via WWD.com)


deco love: round mirrors

I have always loved round mirrors. Maybe it is the art deco glamour they seem to exude, or maybe it is simply the way the round shape counterbalances a room's otherwise square-ness. Whatever it is, round mirrors look fabulous to me. I would love to have one over a console table in an entryway, over a fireplace mantle, or in a powder room, over the sink. Or all three! Why not? Make it a theme.
