How about starting the morning off with a stack of decadent, home made waffles and some luscious raspberry syrup served from this vintage Fenton glass piece? The cranberry glass body features the cheeriest white daisy and fern pattern.  The  silver plate hinged lid opens to reveal a spout for pouring, and is from an etsy store called the Classic Style Shop


Even though it's still really hot here, it is mid August, so it's time to start re-assessing the closet for a few key pieces I'd like to add to my wardrobe for Fall.  I'd love to consider something in an Autumn palette print and this cool Pucci piece could be great!  The seller, Susu Said, tells us this is a mini dress, but what about wearing it as a tunic...maybe with some black leggings and boots?  Could work!  And I'm loving the long sleeves and zipper detail!


A dinner invitation at a friends home is slated for this evening and I'm to bring a dessert.  A lovely fruit tarte from a favorite local bakery far surpasses anything I could make and would be made even more elegant being served with this stunning antique French pastry server called a Pelle a Tarte.  The sterling silver spatula is embellished with pretty hand engraved foliage and features an ebony wood handle.  I love using serving pieces like this...makes a store bought treat just that more special.  From Abundancy on etsy.


A Vintage Treasure is the name of this store, and this piece is certainly that!  I'm decluttering my vanity to feature more of the pretty perfume bottles I use regularly and this oval mirrored plateau will add so much glamour to the counter top with it's lovely gold wreaths and bows.  So charming!


So long as I'm spending a little time in my closet this week, I may as well spend a little time helping my Sweetie tidy up his!  this wooden gentleman's valet is so handy to hang a nice suit on until it's either ready to don or ready to put away until the next wear.  this one is Italian, mid-century and so perfect for helping your guy stay just a little more organized.  From Compare and Contrast.


Off to a friends beach house for the weekend and I know they would love a hostess gift like these six French Majolica oyster plates.  Such a fun way to serve and eat all the yummy seafood available in the Charleston area.  If you've never been, you should check it out.  Besides being a beautiful and historical town, the food there is over-the-top delicious!  You can get these lovelies from Azulclaro.


The weekend on the coast of our beautiful South Carolina brings lots of activities.  This Hermes sarong would wrap beautifully over a swimsuit lounging at the pool and take you right to a wonderful dinner on the veranda.  From Magwood Boutique, this statement piece features colorful parrots amid the most vibrant colors!

Get Outside and Enjoy the Colors of the Season!
