A Few of My Favorite Things!

Hello lovelies, 
I hope you are having a fabulous time in Las Vegas!  I have done absolutely nothing today!  I went for a quick lunch with a friend to discuss a fundraiser she is organizing for the Opera de Paris, but other than that I have completely wasted the day!  My only other accomplishment today?  A list of things I love.... 
So as Maria famously sang in The Sound of Music... 

These are a few of my favorite things!  

Afternoon Tea:
One of my favorite ways to pass the time in Paris is at a cafe sipping a noisette while people watching, but from time to time I love to stay home and have a pretty little afternoon tea party for one.  

I feel like every time I set foot in a home I would want to live in there are peonies in at least one room!  

Crystal perfume bottles: 
My newest obsession!  My boyfriend's parents bought me a gorgeous one for Christmas!

Rose Champagne Cocktails: 
Hannah Blazer makes the most delicious champagne cocktail!  One tablespoon of Rose syrup in a champagne coupe (much more elegant than a flute, in my opinion!), champagne and edible rose petals for garnish!  

Pretty blogs with pretty photos: 
I like this one because I have those teacups in my cupboard and I love this chandelier!  

Beautiful photo by Karina (

This list could go on and on but I am late for a dinner date!  Have a lovely time in Vegas!

  3. Thanks for the comment on my blog! I was just as delighted to read your remarks as I was to get a thank-you note from Sarah Mower for saying nice things about her.

    You and are a lot alike, except that I swear like a sailor. I've got a garden full of peonies, including beauties like Coral Supreme and Bartzella, the most spectacular herbaceous yellow peony you've ever seen. My next addition will probably be a Festiva Maxima, like the white one with the uneven red streaks in the photo. I've just got to dig up another bed. Those babies need a lot of room to grow!
