LIGHTING FOR MY FAMILY ROOM. As the one room we are planning out is coming together, we are working on lighting. This room calls for iron lighting of a very large scale. My architect had something slightly Gothic in mind as it goes so well with the architecture of the room. These are all from the exquisite handwork of Arte De Mexico. Here are a few samples of a few fixtures and sconces that are the direction we are heading into...thoughts?
LETTERPRESS STATIONERY. I have been a long time fan of stationery. All kinds. Seriouly nuts for it. Whether or not I need it. I just love looking at it. I know in my next life I must be a party planner. I love and have an undying obsession with flowers, cakes and especially stationery. Duh...need to be a party planner. Letter press stationery makes my knees week, does it have that effect on you? Check out this gorgeousness from The lettered Olive, even the name I love!

A BEAUITFUL DESSERT. This has nothing to do with anything but how beautiful and elegant is this fig tart? I want to replicate it. I don't know where I found it, but I know I love it. It is so pretty and I bet its delicious too. What do you think?
OK, I think I have talked quite enough about shopping for now and don't even get me started on the subject of food, there willl be no stopping me! But whether we like it or not, the season is upon us and I for one, am not going to find myself in the lurch that I did last year, practically on the verge of a nervous breakdown, still searching for gifts Dec.23rd! No thank you. I want to be done and completed by Dec. 1st. I think I can do it. Thanks to e-commerce its easier than ever. Any great tips you want to share? Sites you have discovered that you recommend? Spill the beans and don't hold back.....Share it with us! Wishing you all a wonderful day!!
