Good morning! Well I am back after my little 4 day hiatus and must say am thoroughly relaxed and rejuvenated. Mothers day was wonderful, relaxing and oh so peaceful! Hope yours was fabulous. Missed being in blogland, and 4 days felt like eternity, can't wait to see what I missed out on! Always good to know when you need a self implemented "time out" and mine came at a great time. I got away for a surprise visit to my mother in Va. got to go to a fabulous spa and on the way backed stopped over for one night to DC. It was a lot of fun and a lot of activity packed into 4 days but so worth it! This is a short post and I will get back on track tomorrow.... So first order of business is the announcement of the two lucky winners, first one is the winner of the beautiful scalloped aged pot/urn and the second lucky winner gets the lovely jeweled frame.
Lots of beautiful antiques including this extraordinary sideboard in her dining room, its massive, measures about 14 feet across!
She creates beautiful little vignettes, love how she has the antique throws strewn about...
This beautiful horsehair filled sofa is such a gorgeous color! She has lots of beautiful needlepoint and aubusson pillows gracing almost every chair and sofa!
A pretty table in the foyer
The fragrant roses and jasmine was an amazing thing to walk outside to!
I replanted her pots by the front door......
A beautiful armoire from Brazil greets you in the foyer.....
Her dining room is so elegant....
Love this guest bedroom..these were my childhood beds!
Humm.....I guess there is such a thing as passing along the blue and white gene!
Another gorgeous armoire!
The other pretty and cozy guest room.....
Another pretty tapestry.......
Done by renowned architect David Rockwell...its fabulous!
The building is exquisite
These chandelier definitely caught my eye
The gorgeous lobby
Love the large rectangular trivets for serving antipasta, cheeses, fruit,etc.....
They are heavy and very substantial looking
Have a beautiful waxed finish
Never tire of looking at the beautiful dough bowls!
And these Bavarian bread boards are such decorative and functional pieces
As are the Spanish olive trays....
What can I say.....I love it all!
Coming home to see Teddy's adorable face and this beautiful huge copper teapot given as a housewarming gift from a group of friends was a special perk....it is exquisite and immediately felt right at home! They had purchased it from a company in France...and it came all the way over with a broken spout! So the new replacement has arrived from one of my favorite countries in perfect condition and I am so happy it is here....... Love it!!
So that's my little Tuesday wrap up. Will be back tomorrow....hope alls well with you and that you have a fabulous day! Would love to know whats new and exciting with you....do tell!
