Monday Musings

Good morning friends, hope everyone had a great weekend. Between traveling, having family over and volunteering at a massive tag sale here in Wilton, CT I am beat. Garden Club’s 80th plant sale is coming up next! It’s amazing how quickly things are growing in my poor neglected garden, must return to it soon!

1.West Elm is having a sale on their outdoor furniture, 40% off plus additional 15%. I used to love dark wicker but I am liking some of the concrete options, they look more modern and sleek.

2.If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I am really into holidays. I like that our at times crazy lives are dotted with regularly occurring celebrations that are centered on what matters most – our family and friends. I was managed the holiday department of that large tag sale and apparently a lady came twice to unload huge bins of holiday decor: Christmas, Easter, Halloween and 4th of July. Apparently her kids had grown up and she was clearing out. As I looked at the 4th of July banners and beautifully embroidered light blue bunny napkins, I felt so sad. I donate my old holiday stuff to schools etc but there are items I can’t see myself parting with. I had to wonder, will I be doing it one day also, getting rid of decades worth of accumulation. I guess it’s just stuff, memories will remain with you…

3.I am going to leave you with this quick video of Windsor Smith home – if you don’t know she is this fab glam bohemian interior designer. She is so talented and I am obsessed with her black kitchen. I know white and grey are all the rage right now but it is so refreshing to see something completely different.
