Stylish Summer Sandals & Hard-to-Find, Rebecca de Ravenel Earrings

Earlier in the spring, I purchased this cute, wicker handbag. I have so enjoyed carrying it this spring. Everywhere I go people comment and ask me about it. I don't think I've ever carried a bag that brought so many compliments! Even the sales associates in my local Talbots love it. At first, they asked if it was one of their bags.

Luxury Travel to Ireland, Minus the Luxury Price

Ever since I saw the movie, Waking Ned Divine, I've wanted to visit Ireland. Have you seen that movie?

The Wonderful, Whimsical Cottage Style of Designer, Alison Kandler

I absolutely love the work of designer, Alison Kandler! If I ever take the step to downsize to a smaller home, I'll definitely go for a cottage home. I could completely turn it over to Alison for the interior design and I know I'd love it! This is such a comfy living room. Love the built-in cabinetry down one wall. It even includes work station/desk. Notice how beautifully the work area fits into this space. It adds even more charm to the room and doesn't feel … [Continue Reading...]
