Hello! I hope you are having a fine holiday weekend! I’m happy to be back with Cindy and Annie this week to show you some beautiful finds: music (a lovely chorus), luxe pillows, a nature walk, and what to watch on television.
It has nice to be with our family in Southern California. We will stay for our daughter, Alexandra’s birthday, and then drive home to San Francisco for a quiet New Years’ Eve. I’m really ready for 2021! How about you?
1. Beautiful Choir Music
This rendition of the song “Mary Did You Know” sung by the Detroit Youth Choir is really moving. (Click on the link). I saw this on the Today Show. You have to watch an ad, but it’s worth it.
2. Luxe Timeless Velvet Pillows
A reader asked about the leopard print pillow in our foyer below.
Years ago I worked for the upscale fabric company, Scalamandré. One of my favorite fabrics was the Italian velvet leopard print that was $500/yd retail! You can buy a ready-made Scalamandré pillow here. They also have it in the tiger print.
It’s an investment that will never go out of style.
3. Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale
4. What To Watch
A California Christmas
Ok, yes, this is a corny romantic comedy (and Howard would hate it) but I thought it was fun and enjoyed the scenes of Napa.
My daughter just started the Bridgerton series on Netflix and she thinks I would like it. “During the Regency era in England, eight close-knit siblings of the powerful Bridgerton family attempt to find love”.
5. Enjoying A Sunset Nature Walk
We took the dogs for a nice walk at sunset along the Santa Monica bluffs with the swaying palm trees.
Ah, fresh air! We’ve been out for lots of walks and playing games with our kids Alexandra and Thomas (aka Alie and Tommy).
Let’s go see what Annie and Cindy have for us!
