My Winter Table





This year we have had the chance to have a few gatherings around our table and I cannot wait to have more in the coming years.  I fell for a picture that I found of a table done in white and linen.  This is my loose imitation with my favorite thick linen napkins and some vintage pieces that we picked up this year.  I hope you are looking forward to the new year as much as I am!

a little time outside..




I hope you have been enjoying the holidays and a little time to relax after everything!  We are having the most beautiful weather here so I have been trying to spend time outside in the sunshine doing a little reading and relaxing.  
I guess I need to stop all of that and get back to work... 

but for now it is books and plans for the new year!

Grey Library..




Oh my goodness can you imagine the hours you could spend here, just reading and browsing..
I think there should be an extremely comfortable lounge some where just across from this to use as needed!

Dark dining...




I know it's almost Christmas and this is in no way a wish list or a Christmas decorating post...  but I liked it...
The windows and chandelier are to die for!

Vintage Urns






I have this deep love for vintage urns, I was browsing through the new container images from the boys at Atelier de Campagne and I am loving all of these..  Pairs of them make my heart skip a beat! 

Can you imagine them flanking a door or on the mantle?  Just so perfect to add that little bit of something with some great live plants added in.

Holiday wishes!




With only a few days until Christmas I am ready to finish up getting ready and get down to enjoying.  I think that the rush of shipping packages and orders is almost finished up... now time to do a little baking with the kids and wrap up all of the Christmas joy!
I want to say thank you to everyone who reads the blog and shops with us as well as all of my clients and advertisers!  You make it all possible and I truly appreciate your business and support as well as your great inspiration throughout the year and into the next.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

greige in Mexico







I am completely loving the soft light and the colors in these pictures.  How beautiful- so much texture it is amazing!  Maybe it can take us to a simpler time and place away from all of the rush of the holidays...
This week should be fun as I try to relax a little and gear up for the days with family and friends to come.

French in black and white...











I am completely dreaming of visiting this amazing French Chateau - Château les Merles.  It looks so charming, I will have to see if I can work it into our trip to Europe next year.  I am already daydreaming of all the wonderful things that next year will hold for everyone.  I hope that it is a year of great things!

Can you imagine...  Have you started planning for next year (I know that I get a little ahead of myself sometimes)??

 Have a wonderful weekend!

Holiday magic..


Ahh.. it's Friday.. This weekend we will be attending a small holiday party (I hope they are serving that yummy little appetizer) and just trying to relax and enjoy the holiday magic!  

There has been so so much going on and I truly need a break (until Monday comes and the kids are home and the shipping of orders begins once again).  

I want to say Merry Christmas to all of you wonderful readers and wish you the very best weekend ever!



What are you up to this weekend??




I am hoping to have this kind of smile by Saturday morning...

Perfectly graceful


I was browsing through pinterest and found this little beauty..  I know I have seen it before but wow does it look perfectly wonderful right now.  I so cannot wait to take a much needed break from the holiday frenzy that has been my life for the past week...  Friday Friday Friday.. ( I know it is Thursday - but Friday will be sooooo nice!)
I heard that Windsor Smith will be coming out with a new fabric line in the Spring- I am very excited to see it!
