LABOR OF LOVE

this is what happens when i get too much time on my hands…i start having interesting thought processes…

so i was thinking about labor day and the significance of it today. of course we all know it signals the last days of summer. it often feels like a melancholy holiday because everyone is so sad for summer to end. everyone loves summer, do you know anyone who doesn’t?

summer is that time of year we feel carefree. we are open to new places and open to having fun. maybe it’s the sunshine and the vitamin D that makes us feel more alive. people seem happier in the summer. everyone looks good in the summer also, maybe it’s their tan or a little more skin showing…..i might add that the days are longer, more time to get things done.

so i came to this conclusion today that summer is like a good love affair. we all know what that feels like. sometimes it has to come to an end, and sometimes it lasts. i thought i’d celebrate the end of summer with some great couples that were in the labor of love.

PP/38- PRETTY PINS THIS WEEK

i just got back from Charlotte, north carolina. i was there photographing the catalog for my new furniture collection with Henredon. i can’t wait to return in a few months for a few book signings.

I really enjoyed the beauty of the city… the neighborhoods, the architecture, the streets, the food, and the traditions i witnessed like the scene of families and children pouring out onto the lawns of magnificent looking churches on sunday..

what stuck with me most, as it always does when i’m in the south, was all the green- the lawns, the trees, the gardens. so lush, so inspiring, so gorgeous. here’s my ode to gorgeous green this week via pinterest.

MDS-BD/85- FLORAL’S AND LACE

happy holiday weekend everyone. i hope you are having fun somewhere enjoying the last days of summer….have you thought about what you will be wearing? well, soon you will be bundled up in cashmere so you better enjoy summer weather while you can.

florals and lace came up while i was doing this post. anna wintour always gives us a good floral dress (note- it’s always sleeveless). i admire a woman who has a look and stays true to it. i’m a fan of anna. i always think she looks good. emma stone shows how to do florals in a more modern way.

then there’s lace. not many people can pull off a sheer lace dress. leandra medine can, therefore she get’s best dressed. enjoy your weekend. pull out some florals and even some lace, if you dare.
