jet set weekend

This weekend I am packing up and going bi-coastal! Where else, but the lovely state of New York. If I'm lucky we might even make it into the city for a day.

While we are on the topic of suitcases, I thought I would share my latest obsession...vintage suitcases. How can you not adore these lovely pieces. They add the perfect vintage touch to your decor.

This week was a challenging one, but today made me forget it all. I was whisked away to what felt like a chapter out of a best selling novel. The air was crisp and cool, the birds were bouncing around and chirping all day, and I can't get over the gorgeous budding bush outside our house with it's intoxicating scent. Sigh.  


i absolutely adore accessories...

...especially big beautiful blue functional ones.

I think I might have to build my kitchen color scheme around this beauty.

There is nothing like a touch of sweet smelling tulips to brighten your day, especially when the Seattle weather gods won't seem to cooperate.

Happy February!
