Hi! I went last night to a book signing in Westport, Ct. at one of my favorite shops Dovecote. http://www.dovecote-westport.com/ The Interior Designer Celerie Kemble was signing her beautiful book "Celerie Kemble: To Your Taste: Creating Modern Rooms with a Traditional
Twist " What a fun night!!! I had a great time. I found a beautiful treasure to help me decorate for Thanksgiving.

Great Day

Hi! Today I took my girls to an adorable restaurant in New York City called Sweetie Pie. It is located on 19 Greenwich Ave. What an amazing place. It is decorated in the most adorable colors. There are hot pink patent leather tufted banquettes. Antique mirrors everywhere and the most spectacular gilded birdcage with the smallest table inside for the luckiest diners. The menu was extensive from mac and cheese and tater tots to yummy gourmet salads. The desserts outstanding. GO!!!!!!! Let me know what your favorite was!!!!! http://www.sweetiepierestaurant.com/

Take A Look

Hi!! It has taken me a while but I am finally getting off the ground here. I have been doing a lot of research on design blogs and am hoping to bring you one that you enjoy visiting on a daily/weekly basis. Lately, I have been seeing many beautiful costume jewelry pieces that look vintage. My favorite go to place EVER is Roberta Freymann. Her pieces are amazing and come from all over the world. There is something for everyone in her shop and every time I go I leave with a bag full of treasures!!! She now has a website:www.robertafreymann.com.
