LOOKING AHEAD TO A NEW WEEK

AND OPENING THE DOOR...




TO ALL THE WONDERFUL POSSIBILITIES OF WHAT'S ON THE OTHER SIDE!


SUNDAY...

I love using my fancy dishes literally every day of the week, but I think it is especially nice on Sunday mornings  to use pretty things.  Serving chocolate espresso in this Pot de Creme set,  with their handy little lids would be just like having a lovely Paris breakfast with your sweetheart in an outdoor cafe!  Now, croissant or eclair?  Hhmmmm.....
From Period Elegance on etsy.


 MONDAY...

This vintage Chanel suit would be perfect for the ladies luncheon I've been invited to attend.  The three-quarter length sleeves are a favorite style of mine, and I'm loving how the entire suit is edged in this beautiful trim work.  I see some versatility here, too...jacket with slacks or jeans, skirt with a crisp white shirt and stunning belt.  Such a flattering peachy-pink!  From Consign Couture.



 TUESDAY...

This Reed and Barton sterling silver spoon would be the sweetest baby gift for a friend who's expecting a little boy!  I love giving vintage things of quality as gifts to friends and family.  The little puffed heart at the top of the handle even has a little jingle sound...what boy wouldn't love that?  It's available from Memere's Attic and comes with the box and velvet pouch.  Adorable!




WEDNESDAY...
This lovely cut crystal and silver plate set is by Mappin and Webb, Silversmiths to both Queen Elizabeth and The Prince of Wales.  The Anglophile in me likes it already!  And since I've planned on having a big salad for dinner using delicious veggies purchased at the local farmers market last Saturday morning, I think it would be perfection  to place on the table for oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Dragonfly Studios 74 has lots of delightful things to look at in their shop!



 THURSDAY...

A fun night out with the girls requires a fabulous top to glam up the dark wash jeans I'll probably wear, and this vintage Pucci knocks me out!  The color combinations of hand sewn beads and sequins is so cool, not to mention the classic geometric shapes and swirls of his prints.  A little glam shoe, a chic cocktail bag, and I'm ready to order a Cosmo!  From Stated Style.

 FRIDAY...

It's sish-ka-bob for a few friends at our house this evening and we're dining al fresco! These mid-century stainless steel skewers have the loveliest rosewood handles and are certainly more dramatic to bring to the table than bamboo ones!  I love how the bright colors of all the marinated veggies look, especially this time of year when they are at their most luscious and bountiful!  From Fox and Thomas.


 SATURDAY...
There's nothing like a Summer Saturday afternoon wedding to break out a gorgeous hat, now is there?  Fashioned out of the palest beige straw and soft pink velvet roses, this chic chapeau from Fifi's Finds, would co-ordinate beautifully with the soft mint-green shantung sheath and bolero jacket I plan on wearing!  Swoon...!


Wishing You a Week Filled with Love and Beauty!
