Thanks to a gracious neighbor, I didn’t have to forage long to assemble a bounty of spinach, swiss chard and radish. Her garden was yet another reminder that summer is practically here.
I’m not having much luck as of late – everything I’ve lusted after in VOGUE has sold out in a snap. Alas, I’m still loving this fun wide-brim straw “Mustique” hat from Thomas Maier. You can find it online, here.
The Orchard, a french style chateau in Newport, Rhode Island just steps from the cliff walk, played host to an estate sale this past weekend. The owners enlisted Tresor Estate Sales to sell the remaining items in their garden and carriage house. From the moment I saw the online posting, I had my eyes on the potted hibiscus and an instant vision of admiring their tropical blooms amidst summer cocktails. Tended to for over twenty years by the property’s caretaker, the hibiscus are rather substantial in size and were just begging for a new home. I’m happy to report I am the new proud nurturer, thanks to my handsome beau who helped get them home safely.
This coming weekend, the property will be open again for an estate sale, to include interior items from the carriage house. Arrive early and bring your coffee in tow! See here for details.
Craving an escape to the mountains and just love the title of this book at my bedside that profiles some of the most intricate yet hidden camps of the Adirondacks. An “Elegant Wilderness,” indeed.
I’m giddy for summer and just as anxious to receive this little number from Solid & Striped. I’m on a gingham kick.
