Christmas Tablescape 2014



This is how my daughter's dining room and table are
decorated for this Christmas season. This little tree is 
on the sideboard. The mini tree skirt is from Target.
 

 



 

Are you noticing the napkin rings and how wonderfully
they match the holly and berry theme?
 
 
 
 

I love this container for cranberry infused water.

This is from her Christmas mantle in her family room that
opens up from the dining room.
Happy Holidays!

Fall And Winter Dressing 2014


Something spectacular for cool fall and winter nights from
Neiman Marcus from Belle Fare-cashmere and fox for $1395.
 
 
This is something more casual but still elegant in style
and less pricey at $795.00 on the Neiman Marcus site.
Cable-knit cashmere with fox trim. Love the boots.
 
 Let's add some color with this leopard print
silk blouse by Caroline Rose at Neiman Marcus
for $255.00. I can't not post a fashion blog without
some animal print.
 
 
I have been seeing a lot of boxy outerwear for fall and winter and then
I found this by T Tahari at NM for $295.00.
 
Mr. Cos and I went to the Grove (a shopping mall) in Hollywood last week.
I'm modeling a Rag and Bone crossbody clutch I found at Barney's for $595.00.
I'm wearing a Johnny Was top.



Ugg slippers at the Ugg store for $120.00.


Inside the Johnny Was store.


We ate at The Fat Dog on Fairfax in Hollywood.
 
 
These are my grandchildren Sarah and Daniel who joined Mr. Cos
and myself for a day of shopping at the Grove in Hollywood.


Looking at downtown L.A. while driving on
the freeway.

Roses in November



This is my 'Christmas' rose. Red and white stripe like peppermint candy.
It's called 'Sentimental'. While not blooming much this summer, the
 plant is now in full bloom in November.
 
My pink rose is having a blooming month.
 

But not a bloom in October.
 

Looking very shabby chic.

I purposely planted this rose in my garden so I would have the Christmas spirit
in my garden.

Bits And Pieces




I've been under the weather the last few weeks and will attempt
to catch up on a few things.
 
Grandpa (Mr. COS) said good-bye to Disneyland in September after working
there for seven years and loving it (weekends only).
 
 
I paid my last (free) visit to Disneyland in September on Grandpa's last day.
 
The band played on Main Street while I was there. A treat for me.
 
I visited a Halloween Harvest area for the kids.
 
This is a stage for magic in the Harvest area.
 
This is one of my favorite sights on Main Street.
 


The Fire House Band on Main Street. So much fun to watch.
 
 
 
 
Good-bye Mr. Conductor. I will miss seeing you in uniform.

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.
