Weekend View

Balloons, cake, market blooms-
this week (and weekend) view...

Has been a busy one.

#1. It's beginning to look a lot like...

This week, I spent a couple of days with my Balsam Hill family shooting videos for the upcoming holiday season. Yes, it involved setting up Christmas trees and wreaths- and even some pretty twinkly light charmers that are coming your way.

#2.  That view...

Since I needed to be on location early in the morning for the video shoots- I stayed overnight in the city- and this time, decided to stay just across the Golden Gate in Sausalito at an old historic fort turned into a hotel.  Cavallo Point Lodge knocked my socks off with their charm on the grounds- and the rooms did not disappoint this vintage loving girl.  Look at all those yummy details.

And the sunset view from the room? 

Well, they were pretty much amazing. 

#3.  Fresh Flowers

Pretty blooms for the party and upcoming projects are always a good thing. And when you buy directly from the grower- they are super fresh and amazing.

You will see these beauties popping up here and there soon.

#4.  In Other News

At Style Illuminated this week- it is all about adding

and about the magic of designer lighting in a room.

#5. The Birthday Girl

Last week, my baby- baby turned 18 years old.  
I am pretty much wondering how that happened already.

So proud of this sweet girl and who she is becoming.
 But yes, you can probably expect an identity crisis type post coming your way soon.

That is it for this weeks random weekend post.
Hope your Sunday is wonderful.
