The Friday Files

Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you had a good week.  
All is well around here.  

I spent a good part of yesterday at the Dallas Design Center with my friend and decorator, Lori searching for the perfect palette for my office.  I snapped a few photos but spent most of my time gawking at all the gorgeous fabrics and furniture.

 I even bought a darling chair off the floor.
This one is not it. 

It's not this one either, but I loved the fabric.

We did choose the fabrics for the furniture and window seat.  I also chose a delicious fabric for our duvet cover, and I love it.  Unfortunately, a swatch was not available, but I should be receiving it in the mail.

Tonight is the kick-off for our monthly ladies' happy hour in the 'hood.  The weather is supposed to be lousy, but we'll have our wine to keep us warm. 

We begin the house tours with this gorgeous mansion in Winnetka, Illinois. 

Do you appreciate a bit of whimsy in home decor?


Here is a glance at Kips Bay Palm Beach Showhouse.

If you have ever dreamed of owning a resort & spa, have I ever got a deal for you.

Or perhaps you would prefer your own personal resort owned by one of Hollywood's biggest stars.

Are you a fish lover?

I am.

Here's a healthy, somewhat easy recipe.

Try it for the halibut.

Do you know how long it took me to find a halibut recipe so I could use that joke?

Here's a cute story written by one of my favorite authors about his  Valentine's Day dinner.

If you are a migraine sufferer like me, this article might be interesting.

If you are a fan of Bridgerton, the trailer for its second season can be found right here.

This is the one that I'm looking forward to.

Here is a hotlist written by some travel editors of the top travel destinations.

Until next time...

I've never seen one of these.

Lots of new markdowns!

Champion is on sale!

  8. Finally getting caught up from this past week from migraine hell (taxes, driving 700 miles, and even some gardening). I love your color / pattern selections. Now, I have five new tabs open from this which I must go and read. Hope you have a great week - pie today and drinks on drinks on Thursday - what's not to like?!
