~ scenes around the house

Finally, a post! After receiving an impressive amount of emails and texts asking where the heck I've been, I received a message that finally got my camera out of hiding. This reader requested that I just walk around my house, snap a few photos for the blog, and post. That sounded simple enough. ..

You guys, this acrylic tray is one of my favorite things in my shop. I have this smaller size, as well as the larger size. 

I am a collector through and through.  (See MacKenzie-Childs glasses above..) I have mixed several collections below including majolica, vintage MacKenzie-Childs plates, french pottery, and aptware, for a gorgeous green and gold display. 

It's easy for book collections to get out of control.

From the kitchen, looking out to the patio...

Most of this french pottery is for sale in the shop!

Here is the larger acrylic tray!

I can order this gorgeous aptware for you from my amazing vendor in Apt, France. I am excited to meet her in person very soon!

More aptware...

Some of my bees in stock :) They are so fun!

I don’t really have any groundbreaking excuses for not posting a lot this summer. Except maybe social media…

You see, a trip to the grocery store for flowers used to inspire an entire blog post, but instagram seems to have taken the place of that photo sharing. I also find myself posting pics from trips and shopping on instagram, both of which used to be blog-worthy subjects. I used to spend time going through vacation photos, and putting blog posts together, but today, an instagram photo seems to do the trick.

Also? I finally figured out snapchat. I resisted, but now that I’ve discovered the filters, there’s no turning back. I found a list of snap stars to follow, and I’m officially addicted. If you can get past the creepiness of feeling like you are stalking strangers on an unusually intimate level, you can get more than a glimpse of the adorable Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, and their precious little baby, Luna. Khloe Kardashian’s workouts are insane! Plus I’ve got a couple girlfriends who send me super funny snaps that I wish I could share, but of course, they are gone forever. My kids basically communicate through snapchat, so it’s a great way to see their adventures… But the filters!

Pinterest is out of control! I do absolutely nothing but “pin” my favorite things into categories, and I have almost 10k followers. I have no idea how that happened.

So anyway, thank you to the reader who took the time to offer this basic blogpost suggestion. I can certainly walk around my house and share photos… And it makes me grateful and happy.  

For those who are wondering, I will be in New York and France in the coming months and will most certainly have some amazing blog posts to share!

It's pretty bad when blogging feels relaxing, I guess. The others are just too frenetic for me somehow....I love the books in your photos here. You definitely have great taste in accessories, etc. ♥

What a great blog post idea- I really enjoyed your photos. I guess I like to see people's "real" homes, not just the staged ones.

I have so many of the books you shared with fav coffee time book right now is Once Upon a Pillow. And speaking of pillows, those pom pom trimmed pillows on the settee are to die for! I thoroughly enjoyed this post. I haven't ventured to Snapchat yet- my nieces are nagging me to try it, but I have to remind myself to post on IG! LOL
Have a great weekend,
