Forgiving


I think we all realize that forgiving is important for our well-being but
but some of us wake up one day in our lives like I did this week and
realize that forgiving is everything. Without out forgiving there is no
grace. I wanted to say this and dedicate a post to it because if you are
on the fence about forgiving, get off of it and forgive and ask for
forgiveness for yourself. Grace follows.

Halloween Inspirations


 
Mini skull cakes made with the cake pan in the shot below.
 
Mini skull cake pan from Williams-Sonoma 
 
A string of cute Halloween lights from Pottery Barn.

 
Staub pot from Williams Sonoma
 

 
 
Black tabletop chandelier found on Pier 1.
 
 
 
This mask I found at Pier 1 on-line and
I have been looking for a matching mask
that I got from a boutique a while back
that Mr. COS is modeling in the next shot.
Nice match, don't you think and it's 13.95.
 
 
Mr. COS modeling Halloween mask purchased last year.
 
 
 This is a better shot of the mask.
When I post this it will still be over six weeks till Halloween but all
the shops are brimming with merchandise now.
 
I found this on Nordstrom's website for $8.00
It's a head band. I might have to get this for me. If
I do purchase this I will take a pic and post it of me
wearing it.
 
This was on Nordstrom's site as well ($20.00).
It has a double meaning for bloggers. Get it?

Another Birthday

I had another birthday this week. I celebrated quietly at home with my family.
This splendid concoction pictured here is a green tea cake. Do you see the tiny spent candle
on it? By the way this was delicious and prepared by a Parisian themed bakery.
 
Beautifully decorated table by my daughter.

Some delicious rum punch to go with the summer weather.
 
Here is a picture of the cake with some green tea ice cream. Delish!
 

Sunflowers for the table.
 


And this is what I wore to celebrate being
one year older. By Johnny Was.

Favorites From The Vintage Marketplace

The Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks is coming up September 5,6 and 7th.
These are some of my favorite shots I've taken from the Marketplace.
Enjoy. Try to make it. It is held four times a year in Fallbrook, California.
It is down the freeway about 5 miles from Temecula, California.
 
There is always a good selection on vintage chandeliers. 
 
 
 
 

 
 

 This is by Christie Repasy who is famous for her rose paintings.  She is a co-founder of
this event.
 
 
 

Paris inspired.


Vintage fabrics.


 Seasonal inspirations.
 




Beautiful displays.





This is from Rita Reade's booth, the other co-founder of the event.
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
Here's all the info you need to know to go.

And this moody shot taken in natural light.
Even if you are not into shabby chic you have to say her
display people are top notch.

Irish Eats And Drinks



Mr. COS and I spend our time eating out at favorites like Muldoon's Irish Pub in Newport
Beach, California.

The food and drink is delicious and fresh. 

It has lots of old world charm.

  Ghost images appear in the glass at evening hour.

We had the corned beef and cabbage. It was excellent and only on the dinner menu.
We ate lunch here a few days later and it wasn't nearly as good but still better
than any chain restaurant like Chili's or Mimi's.

 
This is tee-shirt worn by the staff.
