Happy Halloween!!!

"I am selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

Take a little time for yourself this weekend. I know I will.

Happy Friday.

Nan Lawson

Lilac and Grey has another giveaway!
Cara has partnered with Nan Lawson to give away one of her precious prints.

I hope to win this one

Lord knows I could use those words blown up in constant eyeshot.

Nan has way more where these came from.

Check out her Etsy shop here and visit Lilac and Grey for the giveaway.

I'm Moving to Spain

Didn't you know that I was born into a life of great privilege and fortune?

Well, I was.
I am using that fortune to purchase the
Golden Mile Hills Estate in Marbella, Andalucia Spain.

But don't worry, you can come visit me.

And I will greet you in my limestone and marble foyer.
Then we will celebrate your arrival with cocktails under the pavilion in my back yard.

Need a massage from that long plane ride?
Maybe a dip in my indoor spa?

No problem.

Because I am so rich, and thoughtful I might add,
I will have a plush robe awaiting you.

Then we can go catch up on all the latest Gossip
while relaxing in the cozy den eventually moving to the outdoor patio...
whatever you prefer.

After all, you are my guest :)

Are you hungry? Good. Me too.

Now, normally I would have my staff whip something up for us,
but we are such good friends and love to cook together, let's make it a party.

Maybe open a good bottle of wine from my cellar?

I'll go grab it.
Don't worry about the dining room...I am redecorating, soon.
OMG! What a bad hostess. I didn't even let you get settled into your room.

I hope you will have enough room for all of your bags.

Don't worry about cleaning up after yourself.
One of my maids will take care of that for you.
To your right you should have plenty of fresh warm towels.
What a long day we have had playing together!
Let's go out to the terrace and relax.

You are such a good friend for visiting me in my new home.

Mr. Lowe, I Approve

November's Architectural Digest has been super pleasing to my eyes.
Rob Lowe's house, built from scratch, is a gorgeous, airy, clean home.

Modeled after Mt. Vernon in Lowe's native Virginia,
the home sits on 4 exquisite acres near Santa Barbara, CA.

Architect Don Nulty and Interior Designer David Phoenix worked closely
with Lowe and his wife on their 20 room dream home and, might I add,
it turned out quite nicely.

The living room feels clean with neutral fabrics and a Stark sisal rug.
Yet, the fireplace and pops of warm accents keep it from feeling cold.

I am in love with the master.
Window seat, views of the Pacific, cozy over sized club chairs,
neutral fabrics with dark woods
....I die.
The veranda frames one of the many matured Oak trees on the property
while revealing the Pacific and a pretty little reflecting pool in the distance.
I would be OK with a over sized coffee mug and bowl of oatmeal on
a Sunday morning while the Manfriend pretends the read the paper.
But who am I kidding? This has to be my favorite.
I feel relaxed and tranquil just looking at the picture.

Well done Mr. Lowe.

Did I mention that you are just as good looking
and mysteriously sexy as your home?

I would fight Calista Flockhart for you any day.
