Wednesday's Words

Not to get all sappy or anything and don't know why exactly this stuck out to me but... What a nice way to be thought of, don't you think?

Sandy Hues and Ocean Blues...

...are the quickest way to this girl's heart right now.


What a rug! Love, love, love!

Love the turquoise french toile of the curtains and accent pillows -- not to mention that awesome chandelier! 

Wood trim complimented by sandy hues and ocean blues!

Ocean-themed pillows -- perfect for the sandy hues and ocean blues!

Sand and ocean hues even work for a shower

I am thinking this for a little girl's room at the beach...

Marvelous Jewels on a Marvelous Monday

Well, Monday isn't exactly Marvelous but the power of positive thinking here, right? And, if you were to be wearing jewels such as these at your desk today, don't you think it would help you feel a wee bit more marvelous?

So, we all know Rachel Zoe is a little crazy but let's be honest, whatever your opinion of her is, there's no doubt this lady has style and is impeccably decked to the nines at any given moment, right? Not to mention, she is always dripping in drool worthy jewels (afterall, she has to balance out that 10 carat sparkler her hubby gave her as a "push present".)  So, when I read earlier this month that Neiman Marcus announced the official launch of Rachel's first collection of vintage-inspired costume jewelry, it came as no surprise that there are many-a-piece I would love to adorn! 

You will find most designs come in either green, red or black quartz so you can take your pick or mix and match.  It's costume jewelry afterall so I having a choice of stones in the same design is typical, yet each piece still seems to appear to be "one of a kind"!

Here's to hoping your Monday is marvelous -- with or without jewels!

Kiawah on My Mind...

There is a special place in South Carolina very near and dear to my heart (which, in case it has slipped your mind, I have been telling you about it for years!) I have been lucky enough to spend nearly 28 years visiting this slice of heaven, 30 miles south of Charleston.

This week that special place is in the spotlight as it hosts the 2012 PGA Championship... 
...and I literally cannot stop thinking about how much I want to be there 
(on the beach, but the course will do, too!)

Kiawah Island, South Carolina is the place to be for the next four days as the world's best golfers rival it out on The Ocean Course Golf Course. As the world watches golfers drive and putt their way through the links, I hope you can catch a glimpse of how beautiful the low country is and in particular this heavenly barrier island.
I'll have you know, I will be watching, drooling, near tears, pining to be there, living vicariously through my friends who are there, and day dreaming of one day having a "beach cottage" there of my own!

While the course does not lack anything to look at, it is house-free so I thought I would share just one of the many, many, many glamorous homes that are just beyond the course which you won't get to see. Let me reiterate, this is just one... I can't even begin to tell you how many beautiful homes are on the island -- especially in the Vanderhorst Plantation area closest to the golf course.

And, I should mention, this beautiful beach front Flyway Drive abode can be yours (in which case, I'm happy to be a live-in maid, cook, babysitter, house sitter, take your pick!) 

Oh, to wake up every morning and walk this perfect mile-wide beach.... one day, my friends, one day!
