Perfect Fall Decorating

A nice touch of fall - no screaming orange. All signs of summer have been replaced with a warm throw, a pillow or two, and a fire to take the chill out of the air while you read a good book.

Yes! It's Bigger Than Ever

Leopard print is not only still 'in' for the 2010 fall/winter season, but according to experts, it's every where this year - far beyond the usual places - shoes, bags, and accessories. Keep in mind, the fashion runways and Hollywood tend to go to the extreme on everything. I think I'll stick to the rule of 'less is more' as my guideline in this case. As a leopard lover, I'm jumping for joy.  Enjoy this little fashion show.

One Good Thing About Fall

As I've said before, I am not a fan of fall or any folliage that is yellow, orange, or brown. But, rather than whine about the things I don't like, I thought I'd try to focus on one of the positive opportunities provided by the season - outdoor entertaining.  The evening temperatures are cooler, summer vacations are over, family life has returned to a more normal pace, and weekends are perfect for gatherings with friends.

I love these settings.

Pillow Talk

I love using pillows - on a bed, sofa, or chair. Sometimes I pile them on, and then in some settings it only takes one to make the perfect statement

Hello September

Everyone should own at least one piece of sapphire jewelry - adding diamonds only makes this stone even more beautiful. Happy birthday to those celebrating birthdays this month.
