Love it! - Williams-Sonoma Home mirror

This colonial fretwork mirror stopped me dead in my computer tracks. After gasping, I immediately knew what I would be blogging about today - the white is my fave. Love anything with bamboo fretwork and in multiple color and size options to boot!

Market Profile - Desserts by Tawny Ong

A dear friend of mine Tawny Ong had the privilege this past week of catering the desserts at Gracie Mansion for Mayor Bloomberg's Lawn Party. Mini cupcakes in a variety of scrumptious flavors and banana pudding too sinful to describe were bigger hits then the food itself! If you live in the New York tri-state area - NY, Connecticut and New Jersey, then you're in luck because she delivers to your front door for any size party or event. Just take a look at her website and extensive menu. Once you try her goods, you'll be a repeat offender for life!

A true believer that Pillow Pagoda is an untapped resource, I have four of their pillows and they are equal to the top quality of any mainstream retailer, but ironically possessing high-design patterns unrivaled by the supposed style-makers to the masses.

And if it is, don't fret because she replenishes her inventory on a regular basis so keep checking in - here is just a handful of my faves currently available - "available" being the operative word so act fast!

Love it! - Frontgate.com SALE!

Unfortunately, with the recession still going strong, so are the sales. Frontgate.com is no different than the rest offering up a bevy of products that are bound to please.

Love it! - Beaded frames

For a last minute Mother's Day gift, I chose a store that most have access to, and one of my faves, Pottery Barn. Always a classic, a silver-plated beaded frame will make any childhood photo look like an heirloom to be cherished through the years. Print your photo in black and white or in brown-sepia for an added touch of timelessness. By doing so the photo will be neutral and subtle - complimenting, not competing with the detailing of such a feminine frame.

Love it! - Horchow.com HUGE SALE!!!
