Prague, Czech Republic


                                                Prague, Czech Republic

What am I doing in Prague? My grandson just got back from a
trip to Prague. When he arrived he said he shed a tear because
it was so beautiful.

Before he left I collected these images of Prague and sent them
to him.

All images are from Pinterest


So if you asked me where my dream vacation would be this summer I would 
have to say in Prague with my grandson. But it wasn't to be. He went
with a group of kids from his school to perform in a dance festival.

This is Christmas in Prague.
I hope my grandson got to see this dancing building in Prague. Pinterest.

This photo and the ones that follow are all taken by my grandson while
he was in Prague last week for the dance festival.

Today I am posting some of my favorite shabby chic decor in my home.
This is a vintage window painted for me by a friend.


This dream catcher is from Heaven's Walk.

Summer Dinner Party Ideas



How about a summer sushi dinner party for eight?

Whether you have white wine, Sake or Japanese beer, you've got to have
cute wine charms. 

The little black party favor has fortune cookies in it.


The chalk board napkin holders are from World Market.

Another Sushi dinner party idea.

How about a summer lobster fest dinner party?

With little chocolate gifts from Godiva to take home.

What do you think? Does this stir up your appetite?

Decorating For The Fourth Of July


How about having a lobster fest on the Fourth?
With the first week of summer upon us I thought I
would share some ideas for decorating for the Fourth 
of July since it is right around the corner.

Beautiful New Market

Purple orchids-each plant $43.00

I think every city has at least one luxury market . We have a small chain of luxury markets in
Southern California. The chain is called Gelson's. Altho, a little on the high price side you
won't find better produce, flowers or deli anywhere else. It is worth a visit. This Gelson's I
am showcasing today is brand new in the area of Long Beach. It is located on Pacific Coast
Highway and 2nd. Street. I am sharing some photos with you today. I was not disappointed.
I bought some deli (for dinner later)  and coffee and pastries. 

This is a cake, if you were wondering.


Raspberry tarts


Rainbow roses






This is their deli. They also have wine bar, a smoothie bar and a pastry shop with a coffee bar.


Boxed goodies from the pastry shop. See the little Eiffel Towers?

Outside looking in.
