One word with Tina from The Enchanted Home and a Safavieh giveaway!!

Was cleaning out my files of old posts, and I came across this post that I somehow never posted! I had done this quite a while ago and thought I might as well post it as several had asked me to do one on myself way back when.  Giveaway details on bottom So here it goes....

OK I am going to spare you a sappy intro because well, that would be well just really strange since it is about moi! However many people asked me to do one on myself so I figured why not. What the will give my brain a chance to focus on something else other than fabrics, wallpaper, and lighting fixtures. So here we go.........say hello to Tina from The Enchanted Home!

One quality I love in people is: Authenticity (no phonies or social climbers please)

If my house could only be furnished in one color it would definitely have to be: White

One luxury I cannot live without: clean water and my computer

If I had to have one designer decorate my entire house with 0 input from me it would have to be: This is so hard....there are so many talents out there!It would be a "cocktail"of a heaping teaspoon of  Kathy Kincaid, a pinch of Charles Faudree, a dab of Phoebe Howard, a smidgeon of Dan Carithers and a sprinkle of Bunny Williams. There!

If I had to choose coffee or tea it would be: Coffee! Though lately I am enjoying and drinking more tea, especially many wonderful flavored teas like peach mango and pomegranate...yum!

One place I have been that I would love to go back to: Italy (hoping to go to Positano, The Amalfi coast and Tuscany SOON)

One place I am longing to visit is: China and Greece, oops that's two!

One talent I wish I had was: sing (even better than I do- if that is possible...totally kidding )

I think most people would agree I am very: friendly and funny 

If I could change one quality about myself it would be: to be less impatient and more tolerant.

One career I could see myself having would be: a screenwriter or producer

If food is therapy, when stressed I indulge in: chocolate, preferably with nuts and tons of caramel 

One of my favorite brands for clothing is: Tory Burch

If my life were a book, the title would be: An Enchanted Life

My favorite flower is: Peonies ( tied with orchids, hydrangeas and French tulips)

I would love to have coffee and a chat session with this famous person: Princess Diana

A favorite TV show I can't miss: If I am to be honest....Top Chef, Million dollar decorators, any of the "housewives" shows on Bravo (guilty pleasure)Hey, at least I am being honest:)They are fun and its kind of hard to believe they are "for real"! Bravo rocks! But on the flip side, I am also a serial news junkie.

Hollywood is: Too superficial for my taste but do love a great movie so am indebted to what they do!

Tuscany or Provence? Tuscany. No Provence. No Tuscany. No Provence. Sorry either one is a dream!

The next presidential election will be: The typical explosion of fireworks and finger pointing right up until election night.

The one best thing about blogging is: the incredible friendships and connections I have made and continue to make

A guilty pleasure for me is: indulging in good food and retail therapy

A clothing designer I think that has great style: Ralph Lauren or Tory Burch

My strongest quality would have to be: That I am a loyal, devoted friend

The best restaurant I have ever been to was: A few come to mind but in recent years, dining at Le Meurice in Paris was pretty spectacular (and decadently delicious)!

Most overrated actor/actress is: Alive: Kim Kardashian (if you can even call her an actress)

If my life were a documentary, I could see this actress playing me: Possibly  Charlize Theron

One thing I like about my appearance is: my eyes

One thing I can honestly say I love about myself is: That I am very generous and love to live in the moment

Town or country: country (but having a small city place for weekend jaunts would be quite nice)

One person I admire: I have to say three, my husband and my parents. Awesome in every way.

Pick a decade to live in, any decade: 20's, flapper dresses, amazing headdresses,crazy parties,good manners, chivalry, champagne....need I say more! Always say I was born in the wrong era!

My favorite room of my house is: my kitchen, where it all goes down!

If I were an animal I would be, Teddy of course.

A book I would recommend to everyone would be...
Cutting for Stone or The Help 

If I were planning a huge family reunion, this is where I would want to have it: On a beautiful beach in a oceanfront home in Hawaii or in a vineyard in the heart of Napa Valley!

One thing I wish everyone could be more of: compassionate and accepting. Oops...there I go again, I said two not one! Those two things could change our world.

In one word life is...thrilling!
