hedonistic pursuits

Call me a hedonist, but there is nothing quite like filling one’s home with the heady aroma of fresh cut flowers.  I took a tip from Eddie Ross, and delighted in arranging my very own compositions of all white, tulips, hyacinths, lilies,and greenery and for days have had the pleasure of good scents all around me. 
Are you on a hedonistic pursuit?  What are you filling 
your home with?

FLiP

A dear chic city friend invited me to join her for this special celebration of this publication “Flip for Decorating” by Elizabeth Mayhew- and rest assured that I will tell you all about it from my corner to your corner of the world, page by page, place by place.  Another guide to transforming my home always makes me flip out and say “yes!”

springy

I take great delight in the first signs of Spring.  A local nursery always has the most wonderful display of bunnies, chicks, and garden delights.  It is hard to not walk away with something to put a Spring on my step or in my home.  The fresh color palette of green, aqua, pink, yellow and lilac all speak to me and inspire me to paint.  
Do these images make you feel springy?  Are there signs of Spring in your world?
(Thank you to “Gina from me & mine” who kindly explained how to upload images in a square format, I am still learning how to crop!)

give me a (extra) hand

Firstly, thanks for all your sincere comments yesterday in regard to my new blog layout.  I shall reveal the final soon so please stay tuned.  In the meantime, how fun would these glove models be all throughout the year – to lend a hand or to give yourself a much needed pat on the back for a job well done.
Just imagine how much faster things would go around here if I had one more hand.

pve design dilemma

pve design new blog layout – 1.
pve design new blog format – pve logo wallpaper – 2.
pve design has a dilemma, I am in love with two new blog layouts.  Such a problem.  I can hardly choose myself as I love both of these re-dos for my blog so I thought I would show my esteemed readers and take a survey.  Which one do you like, the one which is clean and works well with my web-site, or the fun pve design patterned wallpaper backdrop?
1.  clean  pve design green ground (like my site)
2.  pve design logo wallpaper background.

The designer can add the bird logo wallpaper behind the solid green too which means that there will be another one to love.  Choices just kill me.  It is like the pickle aisle, I just want them all, bread and butters, dills, gherkins, cornichon and those big juicy deli ones too.
Nothing like being in a “pickle!”
I love them both and am favoring the 1.  (top one) When it is all finished and UP, I shall reveal the talented genius who made it happen!  Please tell me – which one strikes your fancy?

Fashion and style are two completely different sensibilities.  Young girls dress as they please, and are very likely to be complimented on their originality.  But contrary to the recent revelation that 40 is the new 20, dressing well is truly the best revenge to unlease upon aging, and dressing stylishly hip is easy to do once you embrace a few basic creeds.
