Cats love the big swan treee

Swan Tree is the place to be!!

 My cats love sitting under the big swan tree!
They take turns under it.
None of the cats bother the tree or any of the other trees.
They just seem to enjoy the lights and feeling cozy under it.

C'est Noel...



The Marie Antoinette tree is up in the master bedroom with a new addition this year.
I now have a wonderful soft doll head of Marie Antoinette made by the wonderful doll artist Sharon Mitchell of New Zealand. 
Marie has earrings, and a beauty mark and powdered hair so chic! 
I've added a few new ornaments to the tree as well all things that MA was interested in.
More Pinkmas pictures coming we are finally finished decorating
Have a Pink day!

Ghost of Marie Antoinette and her executioner



Ghost of Versailles

Pink Boy enjoys dressing up with me for Halloween every year. This year we were dearly departed Marie Antoinette and her executioner.
He seemed to enjoy his role a little too much. Hope that no additional life insurance has been taken out on me recently. 
We had the fog, the screeching raven, the spooky music, bones and bloody body parts scattered around the path to the door. 
Several smaller children wouldn't come up the path. 
We always get about 250-300 treaters and with such a warm night this year we went through all our candy 11 huge bags! 
It was fun.
Marie would have been happy with all the love and attention of her subjects!
Have a Pink day!

French desk for the library





Fall is finally here and I love it. 
Summer this year was brutal. It was so hot 90 plus days over 90!! I stayed inside a lot. too hot in the evenings to sit out!
Anyway, I love my library with the build in bookshelves and cabinets but never had a desk there. I found this one on an on line auction and won it. We drove down to Sea Island last Saturday to pick it up.
I can't find any of my fall decorations I have looked all over for the glass pumpkins I had last year and now I just gave up. The only decorations I have are on the mantle. a few little real white pumpkins and lights. Yawn!
Have a Pink day!

Highlands NC



 Burt Farm Cashiers show house

I've wanted to visit Highlands and Cashiers for a long time. It is only 3 and a half hour drive. We went up for a short visit to see the Cashiers showhouse at Burt Farm. It was lovely and large. 
Dinner at Madison restaurant at Old Edwards Inn was very nice--  I loved the cream of onion soup and the dessert! 
It was about 15 degrees cooler up there a welcome break from the heat here.  Hydrangeas were in full bloom all around town. 
Can't wait to go back maybe in fall--that would be pretty. We saw Christmas tree farms too in Cashiers which is so close to Highlands. 
Don't miss the chance to see the area if you are ever near it stunning views and fresh air.
Have a Pink day!

Obsessions current and on going

Photos of chair Anita Pelayo Rivera check out her lovely blog above and 
instagram at les_dames_dabord and
Pintrest too



 Meissen food warmer
Claire Pettibone ring

Bonjour!
Summer is such a hard time to blog .
Not much going on and too hot and humid to do much outside. So I have been finding things on-line that I obsess about. I see something then research it and sometimes search for it or sometimes I am content with the new knowledge.
As you know, I love pink and green and those colors in jewelry form are so enticing! Love the ring above.
I continue to learn more about Meissen porcelains and found this photo of a food warmer.What an elegant way to heat up a snack! 
The French chair above I found on Anita Pelayo Rivera's blog (see link above) and I adore it!!
So I will search flea markets and fairs and on-line auctions. It doesn't have to be an antique just have those correct proportions. I have learned in my ongoing study of French period furniture that proportions are everything
So many reproductions are too bulky or too high. 
French furniture of that era was delicate, feminine and on the "small "side.
My swan and peony obsessions continue. 
If I ever win the lottery I will buy property with a small pond so I can once again have pet swans.
What are you obsessed about?
Have a Pink day!
