Back again with a few things I spotted that captured my eye and wanted to share with you.

Spotted on Paris Boutique Hotel I absolutely adore this vintage luggage turned into a settee! I am a fan of giving everyday items that can get a second life and this one is so unique. Not only that but Lynn’s photo for this piece led me to a fascinating new site called Pinterest. It is a site based on user-generated content of items that people like aesthetically. It’s pretty neat!


It has been a long time since I have been camping and I can’t say I was ever a huge fan. When I did camp I was highly organized and there were definitely no beans and wieners for me! The food was always gourmet. These days, if I think about whether I want to camp again the idea, makes me tired..hauling all that stuff out to somewhere, unpacking, repacking and then getting it home, cleaned and put back away…a lot of work! But, if I could camp in something like this…..


I honestly have no idea why photos of dogs have piqued my interest lately. I have no intent on getting one at this time in my life, Jessica would kill me, but every time I see a picture(s) like this, I can’t help myself from taking a moment to ooh and ahh:


This radish truffle butter looks so amazing, I need to get my husband to make this. Fresh radishes served with butter are a common appetizer in France, but I have not thought about making or serving it this way, it looks like heaven. I think my butter-loving pal, Julie would like this:

My wardrobe is mainly shades of black, white and gray but I have a current fascination with caramel shoes, both light, and dark. I recently bought a pair of beautiful light caramel sandals that can look good with black, but I can’t really justify picking up additional pairs when black makes more sense. Still, I love these shoes from Chloé spotted on The Cherry Blossom Girl:


I leave you with some good thoughts that I found on Andrea’s blog. I agree with the sentiment and this photo is a good one to print out and put on my desk:

That’s it for the latest edition, tell me, is this post series something you like?

I LOVE that chair!! I can picture it in a feminine bedroom, right by a girly dresser.

@Carolyn, I love it, I was thinking about the vintage suitcases that look more like dark caramel leather - that would go in my house - it has got me thinking about getting one done!
