the perfect layering piece







































What a sweet layering piece to transition from warm to cool......plus will look great with a blazer as temperatures drop! 


And think this may be my fall hair inspiration....love the soft waves pulled back with a simple bobby pin.

home sweet home



We are off to a "house warming dinner"! Here is a peek at what we are bringing! A little treat wrapped in my favorite new Jonathan Adler wrapping paper (scored last week at TJ Maxx for $2.99...yes I bought all that I could find!!!). And tiny little butter cream cupcakes from Trader Joe's (with a Rifle card).


fabulous + unexpected!
















































I am loving J Crew's "fabulous + unexpected" color combinations this season!!!! I am completely inspired to go try something totally "off beat" and not "too matchy matchy"! So fresh!!!

peel + stick wallpaper































Have you ever heard of Peel "n" Stick wallpaper? I just spotted this on gilt....pretty cute right? Wondering if this actually works? Have any of you tried it?

merci


































Over the weekend my husband burned his two favorite le creuset pots! We bought them over 10 years ago when we first lived together in San Francisco. They have served us well...so we were so sad to see them go!


Luckily, I stumbled on these fabulous red replacements at my local TJ Maxx....a total score at more than half off the original price!!! I LOVE a stylish bargain!!!!!

I'm suprising my husband with them tonight....a little "thank you" for all the fabulous cooking he does! ("Merci" notecard designed by my dear friend Sara Hicks Malone...her line is available here!)
