summertime, summertime

“It’s sum­mer­time, and the liv­ing is easy” or so Sam Cooke assures us. The demands of a new gar­den, the lure of vaca­tion, a child’s sched­ule is flux – along with enough work to fill every day – leaves me to doubt Cooke’s words. And so you, my Dear Read­ers, are left with­out a new post.  The ideas are swirling in my brain, await­ing their chance at freedom.

Real life con­nec­tions trump those in the vir­tual world every time. While I do trea­sure my vir­tual con­nec­tions, the imme­di­acy of those around me each day in the flesh can­not be ignored. I am hope­ful August will afford me the oppor­tu­nity to share some of my sum­mer finds and adventures.

For today, I leave you with these two events to look for­ward to:

Designer Spaces & Mar­ket Places returns for a sec­ond year, and it's going to be amaz­ing! Save the date for our Pass­port Party:

spaces and places

SAVE THE DATE! Spaces & Places Pass­port Party

And this, spot­ted at West­Farms, made my heart do a lit­tle jig!

anthropologie westfarms

anthro­polo­gie com­ing soon to westfarms!

But don't wish away the sum­mer — go out into the world, enjoy, and be sure to laugh!

Go ahead and laugh!!

lovely things…spotted at anthropologie

No one does bohemian chic like Anthro­polo­gie. I was recently in the Philadel­phia store, and taken with this assort­ment of chairs. Clas­sic frames and funky fab­rics, a match made in heaven. You can achieve this look with an inher­ited or flea-market chair and access to some won­der­ful fab­rics (maybe through a fun and funky designer — oh look, there is a con­tact tab at the top of this page!)

Because I could never have a real ani­mal head on my wall, this is more my speed:

Finally, I was amazed by the size of this mansard mir­ror. Is big­ger always better?

I did pick up some funky purple-and-green glass knobs for my office. Check out their vin­tage and mod­ern hard­ware selec­tion online.
