Do you love fresh traditional interiors as much as I do? Spaces that include traditional furniture with new fabrics, wallpapers, and accessories. I have someone for you to follow if you do. Also, my grandbaby is modeling her new Zara dress that I bought her on sale, a good book, and more…sort of all over the place as it is:
Five Faves with Annie and Cindy!
1. M. Steffen Fresh Traditional Interiors
Lately, I don’t see everything I want to on Instagram but this account stopped my scroll and I went to her account page to see more of her work. M. Steffen Interiors has a beautiful Instagram account with photography by @rossgroupcreative.
Missy Steffens agreed to let me feature her work here.
Makes me want to wallpaper something again!
2. Zara’s Big Sale (and their kid’s clothes, too)
Here is my granddaughter, Louisa in the blue poplin smocked dress that I just bought her. It comes in sizes 9 months to 6 years. Zara does have some cute kid’s clothes. Things go fast at Zara when they have a sale.
Louisa, at 10 months, is trying to walk (falling a lot) and moving so fast, I could barely get her photo.
This short embroidered dress that I wear as a cover-up or as a long tunic is inexpensive especially now. The workmanship is nice. It would be cute over white jeans or leggings.
I am wearing a Size Small. At 5’1″, it comes just above my knees. The packable straw hat is from J. Crew.
My daughter sent me the link to this green paisley outfit. It would be cute and comfortable with a white tank and the shirt open. I will probably have to have the pants shortened…but worth it at this price.
3. Bark Box For The Treasured Dog
Do you have a special dog/dog owner in your life? My sister, Teresa ordered a subscription custom gift box for Chief and we both got a kick out of it!
They each have different themes and this one is an Italy Playcation. Chief is allergic to chicken and so Teresa chose treats without chicken. So cute. Thanks, Teresa.
4. What To Read/Listen To The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post by Allison Pataki
This was a fascinating account of the cereal heiress’s life. What an amazing woman…not too lucky in the husband department but you will have to read it!
Which got me wanting the Post Grape Nuts cereal that I loved as a kid.
5. When Was The Last Time You Ate Cereal For Breakfast?
We just bought a box of Grape Nuts again and it’s pretty healthy…all whole grains and no sugar added. I made a simple yogurt and fruit for breakfast.
