Looking Ahead to a New Week!

There's lots to get accomplished next week...

...and I've found some of the nicest things to help me check them off my "to-do" list!
SUNDAY...

Is there any nicer way to start a Sunday morning with your sweetheart than a leisurely breakfast in bed? This pair of vintage bed trays presents you with a greeting of the prettiest floral bouquet on which you can serve the simplest of meals and still feel decadent! From Past To Present Vintage.


MONDAY...

Simply French Vintage offers quite a few options for wonderful quality T-towels in her shop. I've been vowing to replace my threadbare ones and this week seems like the perfect time to do just that. This particular style was part of a brides trousseau and features hand worked monograms.



TUESDAY...

I have always wanted to start a collection of vintage issues of Vogue, even before I saw Miss Charlotte Moss's massive collection which she has had bound in lipstick red binders filling the shelves of her office. This issue, from August 1961, happens to be of particular interest to me, since it contains a feature piece on Jackie Kennedy inspired fashions. It's from a shop called Friend of Quentin.



WEDNESDAY...

Looking for a statement piece to boost your weary winter wardrobe? I know I won't find this piece as I wander through the shops today on my regular Wednesday mall run. The Mesa NY on etsy is the only place to get this one of a kind creation made from a 1930's suit collar of genuine cheetah, freshwater pearls,and Swarovski crystals and roundels. Even the clasp is a vintage Chanel earring!






THURSDAY...

I'm having a few friends over to help me plan a mutual friends baby shower, and I know they'd love to be served espresso in these gold rimmed demitasse cups and saucers. All six sets are in varying shades of mauves, browns and pinks...I love this color combination, don't you? Available from Hemp Seed and Honey.






FRIDAY...



A dear friend is turning 50 this year, and his wife is throwing a surprise bash for him tonight! It's all very casual, with fun Mexican fare on the menu. Although it's not really my usual style, I'd love to wear this festive vintage top with jeans and black boots. From Kaleidoscope Vision, this brightly embroidered blouse is from the 1930's or 40's. Bring on the Margaritas!



SATURDAY...



Back in the olden days of the late 1970's when I first met my sweetie, backgammon was all the rage. I remember many romantic evenings of enjoying this then-glamorous game with a bottle of wine and the Commodores crooning on the cassette player. Even after all these years, we still love to spend time together doing just that and enjoying each other's company! This is a lovely vintage set from Debbi Does Vintage.


What Do You Need To Accompish This Week?

The espresso cups are calling to me. Quite feminine without being frou-frou. Hmmm...
