What a week! Take a deep breath and come enjoy fresh decor ideas, gorgeous costumes, and more. Annie, Cindy, and I look forward to sharing our five favorite things with you each week. It is an escape for us too!
1. Tailored Window Treatments and Pretty Wallpaper
This is Juliet’s Blue And White Bathroom. It all started with her love of the Schumacher Pyne Hollyhock in Indigo.

I acted as a design sounding board. We thought a simple roman white linen shade with a Greek key would be best with the wallpaper taking the show.
You will like Juliet’s blog… It is California casual meets English countryside!
2. Durable And Stylish Comfortable Rug
We bought this West Elm rug for our son, Thomas when we stayed with him for Christmas at his bachelor pad. It’s 20% off right now. I put it on Instagram and a couple of people wanted to know more about it. It’s actually indoor/outdoor but soft on your bare feet. It comes in lots of colors. This is the iron color.
Here you can see the iron shade has some blue undertones but they have others that are much more vibrant blue. This would be good to freshen up a family room.
I met darling Heidi at the birthday party Cindy H. for Elizabeth (AKA The Vintage Contessa) and have been following her on Instagram. She is an artist in Northern California. The beautiful and affordable tulip painting caught my eye! It is on canvas board so I attached velcro tabs to the back and put it in a floating frame from Blicks.
4. Bridgerton Costumes
I mentioned watching Bridgerton on Netflix before. I binged watched it without Howard! Be prepared for some explicit scenes. The costumes and sets are amazing.
Watch this for more about the costumes…
5. Super Soft J. Crew Turtleneck
I love this J. Crew turtleneck (comes in other colors). Very soft…not itchy at all. 40% off right now. My daughter took this of me before going into Trader Joe’s. We are still on lockdown…so this is a highlight. I’m wearing it with Banana Republic leggings, a crossbody purse, and my favorite new booties that Howard gave me for Christmas. The Madewell booties are flat and with a bit more rounded toe than my other ones. Very comfortable.
Cindy H. is wearing the soft turtleneck in lavender here.
That’s my five faves: Fresh Decor Ideas, Gorgeous Costumes, and More.
Weight Watchers Update
Weight Watchers Update Week One! I think this is the hardest week of adjusting, but I can honestly say that I have not been hungry. With my height/frame, if I lose 1 to .5 lbs a week, I will be happy. This will take some time. Thanks to those of you who signed up with me as we both get a free month. It’s not too late. Please leave any of your WW suggestions in the comments!
Do you know about Dave’s Killer Thin Sliced bread? It’s only two points and tasty. We get it at our local Safeway but I have seen it at Target too. For breakfast, I have it with a hard or soft boiled egg with salt and pepper (or Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning) and a spritz of fresh lemon juice (which I discovered from avocado toast). You almost don’t miss the butter 🙂
Also, thank you to those of you who filled out this quick questionnaire for What You Would Like To See More Of In 2021. I will have the results next week and announce the winner of the one-hour free virtual consultation. You can still enter!
