Wear Your Green!

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

A Happy Saint Patrick's Day to ya'll!

Pretty As A Picture: The Work of Minnie Peters Interior Architect/Designer

I'm breathless at the gorgeousness of interior architect/designer Minnie Peters' work.  Every room is absolutely picture perfect! 

I am so in love with the conservatory effect above the kitchen table - this room must be even more dazzling when it is flooded with sunlight!  I love the chandeliers in the kitchen below:

The bathroom below with its parquet wood floors, crystal chandy, and gorgeous antique bombe chest outfitted with a sink is positively stunning.  The clean modern purity of her work using antiques is incredibly impressive. 

 Aren't those Moroccan arches over the doors lovely?

 Even the kiddies rooms are decorated to sweet perfection!

The warmth and patina of these wood cabinets on either side of the range hood are so welcoming and cozy-  they make this kitchen spectacular as does those cache pots of lavender.

Pretty as a picture!

Hope you have a beautiful day!

Shoes, Snow & New Beginnings: Oh My!

Good Morning!

I am feeling like a phoenix arising out of the ashes to begin life anew - like a chameleon ready to change color as I take a deep breath and step into a new beginning.

 I can't tell you much more than that at the moment sweet reader, but I promise to share just as soon as I've worked out all the details!  I must admit I am feeling so optimistic about my decision that I know it is right.  Because I will be in control of my destiny instead of waiting for life to happen to me.   So ladies, when making a giant leap forward it's important to step out in some pretty swag-worthy shoes, right?

Okay, make that drop dead gorgeous right?  But, well, this is snowy, ice-cold New England and besides; I would have to shave my legs this morning instead of blogging! So, I will probably just wear  my new fave Rockport waterproof technology boots that I have been wearing all winter long. Well, at least since I took down the Christmas tree decorations at Reebok's corporate office a few weeks ago and had a chance to shop at the company store! Oh joy!

Since the local weather forecasters are expecting 5"-10" of new snow tonight, I should probably be sporting something like these rugged beauties instead.

No matter which shoe choice I end up making, I just know that my new life is going to be fantastic because really...

So wish me luck and please, if you have a chance, I'd love to hear some of your stories and advice about starting something new!
