LOOKING AHEAD TO A NEW WEEK...

AND ENJOYING THE CHANGING COLORS OF THE SEASON!
AND SPEAKING OF BEAUTIFUL COLORS, CHECK THESE OUT!

SUNDAY...

It's Football Day at our house, but there's no reason to dress down!  This casual, but luxurious cashmere sweater from my collection at The French Maid, is the perfect way to dress up jeans and still look pretty for the day. It's such a classic piece, you could also wear it to work with a charcoal pencil skirt or black slacks.
This color is scrumptious in person!


MONDAY...
The plan for Halloween tonight is to treat both kids and their parents to a little hot apple cider while Trick-or-Treating.  The forecast is for a chilly evening and a little warm drink would be so nice to serve to visitors in this cute vintage coffee serving set in Candy Corn colors.  This is Carleon Ware from England and includes the pot, 6 mugs, sugar and creamer and 2 serving trays. It's from an etsy shoppe called French Toast Kitty!


TUESDAY...
This pair of silk velvet pillows gives a whole new meaning to throw pillows!  European chenille appliques, dating to the 1880's, with stunning French embroidered handwork in peach, rust and saffron threads against a backdrop of rich dark green velvet, are embellished with braided metallic bullion tassels.They certainly look wonderful against the brown leather in the photo, but would be equally as lovely in a romantic boudoir!  Bella Soiree has really incredible textiles in their shop

WEDNESDAY...
A birthday this week of a very special friend requires a unique and beautiful gift.  She would love this  German Silver Repousse locket from the 1930's suspended from a three-strand necklace composed of faceted rose quartz nuggets, champagne rondelles, freshwater ivory pearls, moonstone and pink topaz.  A romantic pink silk ribbon bow completes this most romantic "Chantal".  How sweet is this piece?  From Bijoux d'Odalisque

.
THURSDAY...

Even though we still have two months left in the year before we change over to a new desk diary, you might consider finding something a little different and special to help you stay organized.  This vintage leather-bound piece has a dramatic Asian motif on the cover and 5 years worth of pages edged in gold leaf and has never been used!   It even has an old lock closure.  I believe even the top of your desk should look pretty, don't you?  It makes daily tasks so much more pleasant.  From Down River 1.


FRIDAY...

A cocktail party on a beautiful Autumn evening with my Sweetie is a time to wear something appropriate for the season like this 1960's little black dress with a flocked velvet tone-on-tone rose print.  But the real focal point is the gorgeous plunging neckline edged in gold trim with stunning gold leaves decorating the bodice.  The flirty skirt is perfect if we decide to take a spin on the dance floor, too!  This is from Very Vintage, and you won't believe the price!


SATURDAY...

I'm attending a lingerie shower on Saturday for a Bride-to-Be and although I've already chosen a gift for her of some pretty undergarments, I'd love to tuck in a set or two of these blank note cards featuring the chicest 1960's fashion illustrations on the outside. I know she would appreciate having something really special to write her Thank You notes on, and these are so perfect!  From Shout Out

Hope You Enjoy the Colors of the Season, Too!

I don't wear those hideous jerseys on football day; I wear real clothes like you. I feel more collegiate and 50's-retro in a sweater and skirt. And men are more polite to you and willing to refill your drink. You know it's true!
