Happy Weekend! Did the change in time last weekend have your internal alarm clock confused this week? I had a hard time staying up late like I normally do, but I have loved waking up before the alarm has gone off. So here’s to an early start on a Saturday morning!Lots of goodies to talk about with you today starting with this one….
This week we looked at some interiors by Kathleen Rivers, and many of us loved her yellow room at Chattooga Club. Well, I found another designer who has created spaces there, and you might want to take a look at her rooms. This talented lady is Meridy King. If you liked Kathleen Rivers’ rooms, I think you will like the work of Meridy.
I found an old article here about the 20 most expensive hotel rooms in America, and this one was on the list. I had not heard of it before, and although it is not a place I would put in our budget to visit, it does have some pretty rooms to see.
A more realistic place for us to stay might be this cute vacation rental in my favorite place – Highlands, North Carolina. The rental information is here, but a post by a photographer who has stayed there is here (much better photos than those on the rental site.)
(and I believe those drapes are made from the same fabric I had here looooong ago.)
(Sorry for the fuzzy photo. It is very old.)
Another thing to talk about today is books! Look what I purchased last night…
I was in Book Heaven when I got home! (Well actually, when we stopped to fill the car with gas, I started reading them. LOL) The Sarah Richardson book is full of pretty rooms, and this one is my favorite.
I was disappointed that it did not include any photos of my two favorite houses she has done
nor the cottage.
On the other hand, the new Barefoot Contessa book looks to be all good – especially the desserts!
You can find the recipe for these cookies here.
And guess what else makes my heart happy about the book…
Another recipe you might like to try this weekend (especially for Thanksgiving) is this one from Fresh Market. You can purchase their divine Cranberry Relish in the store, but if you are not near one, the recipe will allow you to recreate it. It is so good you will want to eat it with a spoon! Seriously.
And speaking of Thanksgiving, here is a beautiful harvest party.
And here is a precious children’s Thanksgiving party.
A woodland theme for children’s parties seems to be quite popular right now.
Just look at these beautiful cookies for a baby shower!
Here is a vintage woodland baby shower that is precious.
And speaking of babies, here is the real talk of our weekend…
Do you remember our niece’s barn wedding I wrote about here? Well she and her husband are now the proud parents of this sweet little bundle…little Liza Meade, who was born on Thursday afternoon. Can you believe all that hair? (I bet her mom already has a bow in it.) Congratulations Phillip and Ashley!
And for the child in all of us…
Our daughter is home from college for the weekend, and she wants us to go see this movie…
Looks like a good one to me!
And that’s all the talk for today. I hope you have a great weekend.
