Bed Behavior

I had the craziest dream last night! My cat was the Queen of France, and I had to fashion together the most luxurious jeweled collar to impress her; if I failed, she'd be off with my head! The only thing I can reason is that she must have been hogging my pillow space while I slumbered, and that was my mind's way of reminding me that this kitty rules the roost. Anyway, that got me thinking about lovely beds and bedrooms, hence the boudoir decorating tips. (Funny how the mind works, right?)

Oh So Pretty

I feel like a lucky girl: Headed out for date night tonight, and I'm marveling at all of the fun treasures I've picked up over the years for my closet. Vintage bags, family heirloom jewelry, lacy blouses and skirts (not to mention the pretty underthings in my chest of drawers!). Isn't it fun being a woman?

Remote Romance

I'm all for chic Parisian apartments and the like, but I do live in a very remote area and enjoy the quiet of the country, meaning I have a heart on for farmland, too. In fact, it's always been a dream of mine to own a romantic farmhouse somewhere in the far away fields of France. For now, I'll settle on fun farmhouse decor. Here are a few looks that have brought me inspiration, as well as some accessories — this charming horse, and these cute pigs — that you can add to your home to help get a similar look!

La Potee Le Fun

I was so happy to see the first few days of the month turn out to be sunny and bright, that I wholly expected to skip June Gloom altogether this year! Unfortunately, the clouds have come out to play. But I'm not letting it take my smile away! Instead, I think I'll make my own version of this delicious French Farmhouse soup and imagine sipping it inside of a quaint cottage next to a roaring fireplace. Aaahhhh... Much better!

Totally Toilette

It might be the smallest room in your house, but a uniquely decorated bathroom can pack quite a decorative punch! Here are a few of our favorites. Which one do you gravitate toward the most?

Tea Party

Is it wrong that, whenever current political debates enter the conversation, my mind wanders this way at the mention of "tea party"? Don't get me wrong: I'm very interested in politics. But after years and years of associating the term with scrumptious delights and yummy tisanes, it's tough to get the fancy wonderland out of my head! I'm trying my best, but I think I'll have another tea party this afternoon — complete with these cute tea towels — just for the heck of it! Cheers!
