    Beautiful and elegant, it’s so you!!!

  2. I think this latest venture is a great idea, but can I ask one thing? – these beautiful items are all OK if you live in the USA, but what if you live in the UK, Ireland or Spain etc – perhaps the companies you deal with should be thinking about international delivery without having to pay Customs Taxes. I say this, as I know it hasn’t been very cost effective for International Deliveries for quite some years, but I have been doing some research over the past few weeks on sites like Ebay – and I have now noticed that there are a lot more businesses from Canada and the USA that are now delivering internationally and not charging as much as they used to for Delivery, plus most are not charging Custom Taxes neither now. I suppose they are probably amalgamating the Custom Taxes within the price of Delivery?

    I have also noticed that China are not actually charging for delivery at all now – which is great ๐Ÿ™‚

    I chat about this as I live in 3 Countries, UK, Ireland and Spain and I am one of these ladies that also loves beautiful things and when I see them – I think to myself – I would like them, I would like that etc etc lol – you know what it’s like –
    but ……. when I look at a lot of USA sites – alas they do not deliver internationally, or if they do, they charge astronomically high delivery charges – and…….. then I think …… oh – what a ‘bummer’! So.. perhaps you can see where I’m coming from ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anyway, nevertheless I think it’s a great idea and you take fabulous photos and your table scenes are really really beautiful. I would also like to wish you Good Luck in this new venture – you will do well ๐Ÿ™‚

    I Hope you didn’t mind me going on a bit – but I just get disappointed when I can’t have what I see or pay over the top delivery prices ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I would like to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you so much, Denise, for your feedback. It’s helpful to be reminded of things we don’t necessarily think of. I actually assumed the big American chains like Pottery Barn and the like did ship internationally. I know I order from overseas all the time, but that’s only on small items where the shipping is not astronomical. I’m not sure what the best way around it is, though. Will have to put some thought into that. It’s also something to keep in mind for when I launch my own products… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks, as always, for your comments! Wishing you a wonderful holiday and the best for 2016, as well!!

      1. Hi Lory – thank you for taking the time to reply to my comments – albeit I know they were long ๐Ÿ˜‰ Glad you thought they were helpful and reminding you of things you may not necessarily think of. I can only thank you for saying that you will put some thought into it – specifically when you launch your own products – as I am sure I am bound to see something that I love and will want ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you also for your very kind wishes – chat soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I have just subscribed (and just found your blog :-)) to the newsletter because of the beautiful and elegant tablescapes seen here….so….I am looking forward to the tabletop design venture in the new year!!!!! Great inspiration!!! ***HAPPY NEW YEAR***

    1. Thank you so much!! Welcome and I’m delighted to have you here… ๐Ÿ™‚ Have lots planned for the new year, so hopefully you will enjoy. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and say hi! Happy New year right back to you!!

  4. I love the champagne flutes in the picture where they are next to the bottle of champagne. Could you please tell me where you bought them or the maker?


    1. Hi Cindi, If you mean the cut crystal ones in the first photograph, those are Ralph Lauren’s glen plaid flutes. I have them in wine goblets and regular drinking glasses, as well… ๐Ÿ™‚ The one’s on the board with the gold on them, you can find by clicking on the link. Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!!

    It’s all just gorgeous and I like the use of an unusual color. The napkins and macaroons made me swoon! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    1. Thanks, Jann! I think that’s my theme this year – trying to use a color theme that’s just a bit different than what you see everywhere – not so much because others are doing it, but to do something different than what I did last year… lol! Thanks for hosting, as always!!

  7. Beautiful and I do love your napkins!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

    1. Thanks, Cindy! Yes, I’m a big Pom Pom at Home fan and I love the little delicate ruffles on those… ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for visiting!
