The LV Diaries: A Bewitching Papillon

Bewitched is one of those shows that I watched as a child— it’s up there with 1960’s classics like the Brady Bunch, Family Affair and That Girl (I am currently watching them with my daughter and she loves them all–including Bewitched!).  The fashions and style of the 1960’s are like no other and while watching …

The LV Diaries: Vintage Mini Sac HL

This by far has got to be the cutest bag ever made by Louis Vuitton. This little bag is older than me–it’s well over 35 years old. I bought this vintage Mini Sac HL about 4 years ago–the brand has since brought back these bags and I believe they market them as a mini speedy. …

Tea for One & One for Tea

I’m back from my vacation and truly, I need a vacation from my vacation. As I’ve said these last few days, Disney is an experience, not a vacation. Epcot is always one of my favorite places to visit. I especially love taking a long stroll around the World Showcase— specifically England. You feel like you …

The China Cabinet Chronicles

I fell in love with this china cabinet when I first saw it–it’s petite in size and has such beautiful detailing. I’ve been in a Spring cleaning mood as of late and yesterday I gave my China Cabinet a good cleaning. It was much overdue. When I first brought it home 3 1/2 years ago, …

A Blue & White Birthday

Another year older, another year wiser. I’ve heard people say that the older they get, the more comfortable they feel in their skin as well as happier. I feel like that applies to me as well. I’ve consciously made it a point to try new things out of my comfort zone as well as start …

Fitz & Floyd Tea Cups

On a recent trip the an antique shop, I spotted these gorgeous tea cups from Fitz & Floyd’s Renaissance collection. Unfortunately, they came as a set of 8… fortunately for me, the price was an absolute steal! The Renaissance collection has since been discontinued so you see, I couldn’t pass them up! The black and …
