A Simple Equation

A few of these equestrian hooks lined up in a mud room would sure add up nicely.

Well Thought Out

Perfect shopping attire? Something comfortable, fashionable, layered for going in and out of stores, casual in feel but formal enough for lunch out.

What a Hoot




I adore these little plush owls. They would look right at home nestled in a Christmas tree.

Tell Me

I'm a guest this year. I'm looking forward to it but I do miss planning the meal and the table setting. How will you be setting your table?
Martha Stewart, Pottery Barn

Curtain Call




I have a rather large window in the great room. The drapes need some attention. I have a really hard time with achieving the look that I want. It takes a lot of patience which I am sometimes short of. This is a call to Karyn, the taller tall girl. Help!

Carry On




I have a thing for totes and bags in general. I am always looking to add a new one to my collection. For shopping, as a swim bag, or for an overnight stay. Can you have too many options?

Details, Details

It's amazing how such a simple thing as a doorknob can do so much for a space.

To Do


This month has gotten away from me. I can hardly believe that next week is Thanksgiving. I have so much to do in preparation of the big day. To do list: planning, shopping and organizing.

Word of the Day

Sheen- beautiful, shining, resplendent.

I am big on sheen lately, loving fabrics & accessory pieces that have just a bit shine used along side naturally rough textures. It's all just right.

Inspiration





I am a monochromatic person, always have been, but I have been thinking of adding a pop of color in our bathroom. Paint, wallpaper, tiles, I can't decide.

An Equation

Mix matched baskets, travel poster, salvaged table, all add up to a perfectly beautiful entry space.

Forecast

I can't bring myself to decorate for fall until the weather really changes. It's finally happening so now I can get to it.

Vintage Chic

I found these lovely vintage pieces on etsy. I love classic style that can re-emerge decades later.

Staycation

This is one of my favorite rooms. I'd feel like I was on vacation everyday, waking up here.

Southern Comfort


Karyn and I are part of a supper club that meets about every six weeks. The theme and the locations change each time. Tomorrow's theme is Southern food, which having a first name like Rebel you would think I would know a lot about, and I don't. I am in charge of dessert and I plan on making red velvet cake and a sweet potato bread pudding. Every recipe I have consulted has a "must do this", " don't do that" comment in regard to good ol' Southern cooking and I'm unsure. If any of you have a great recipe, tip or otherwise PLEASE pass it our sunny California way. Thanks, and I'll report back on the outcome

I Concur

I completely agree in regards to the boots. This would be the perfect spot to sit down and put them on!
Living Etc

Bootie Call




I really like the style this fall with rolled jeans and ankle boots. A blazer or jacket and some nice accessories to complete the look.

Have a settee



I have a thing for settees, especially in the dining room. I am planning on adding one or two to my dining area at some point.
