toile de Jouy

Take a look at Richard Saja's amazing work. This designer has taken traditional French patterns, chronicling the dancing, picnicking, gardening, and boating lives of the bourgeoisie, and rewritten the stories with brightly colored embroidery.
I think they are just fascinating, and beautiful.

mountain fun

Hi friends! We went to the mountains yesterday with our good friends and had a really nice time. It was an absolutely gorgeous day. The leaves were golden, burnt orange, and fiery red. The sun was golden and shining bright, and the air was crisp, just as a fall day ought to be.
We ate lunch at a delicious little pub. I got a salmon BLT. Now, I've always been a big fan of regular BLT's, but when I saw this on the menu, I just couldn't resist. I'm also a big fish fan and love good grilled salmon. Let me tell you, that was a good sandwich. 
We went to our favorite little coffee shop, Espresso News, and enjoyed some good coffee. They roast their own beans every day, so they are fresh, fresh, fresh. I had the best americao I've had in a really long time. 
We then drove through the backroads of the mountains, and enjoyed the scenery.
It was a perfect day, if you ask me.
After discussing how we had no good Chinese take-out restaurants in our city, Lee and I  happened upon one right under out noses. I think I've probably driven by it a million times but never paid any attention.
So we decided to finish the night off with our first-ever-since-being-married Chinese takeout, and watched a movie. It was delicious, but I ate a little too much. oops:)
Hope y'all enjoyed your weekend too,

I'm dreaming of a white christmas...

Well, it's that day again! I have another photo shoot today, and then we're going over to some friend's house for dinner tonight. We haven't seen them in way to long, so I'm excited.  I was listening to the radio this morning, and pandora snuck in a Frank Sinatra christmas song. I'm not gonna lie, I loved it. I love old jazz singers, I love christmas, and I am fully ready to commence all things holiday!


Enjoy!

Let's . . .



Well, it's the weekend again, and golly does it come fast. I think my weekdays have been going by a lot faster because I love my work now.
Today we are off to VA to see family, and deliver some furniture.
It's a short+sweet trip, but it's gloriously sunny and fall-ish out, and seems just perfect for a little drive with my husband.
This week I'm thankful for new friends.
My heart is happy.

Hope you all enjoy yourselves the next couple days.
See ya soon!
