These Summer Shoes Were Made for Walking

Summer has arrived. Vacation plans?  Beach? Mountains?  Staying home?  We have a quick trip planned in a few weeks to the city where I'll do a ton of walking.  Is it possible to be fashionable and comfortable at the same time? I think so!

These were made famous by Pippa Middleton a few years ago.  Another pair that will go with everything in your closet.  If you need a little height.....

These scream summer. Love the color, the bow and the price!


These are so ugly that they are cute.  Maybe not going to make into Vogue, but they are comfortable.  Your feet will love you!

 Love the look of these modern espadrilles. These will go with everything you own. See them here.

A classic shoe that you can wear 20 years from now.  These are expensive but also on sale. You won't regret buying these.

Love these leather slippers from Vince.

These are just fun!  


If you are on a budget then you'll love these at Target:

Another one that your bank account will love:

Enjoy your Saturday!

Needlepoint Stash Picks

Summer is not the best time for stitching at my house, but nevertheless, I am always adding to my "stash" - who can resist the tug of a great canvas? Only the needlepoint aficionados know what I mean.  Here are some of the canvases I'd love to add to my growing stash.......

This Tally Ho canvas from Pip & Roo is finally back in stock.  Love this!

This great sign can be ordered from Po's Point.  Can't wait to put this on my patio door!

Who doesn't love a great bunny?  This one too can be ordered from Po's Point:

Another favorite from Po's Point:

The Plum Stitchery is one of my favorite designers.  Love this one!

Love this pillow from Dana Gibson (through The Plum Stitchery):

And I love these Dana Gibson pillows (they come in four colors) but they are big and you'll need a spot, or use this to cover a stool!  

And I also love this Mother Nature Series from The Plum Stitchery (but I would leave out the mother and just use the animals):

And I love this ornament, also by The Plum Stitchery:

Happy Stitching!  Enjoy the long weekend.....

RIP Rox Dene

One of the finest horses ever, in the hunter world, has crossed the rainbow bridge.  Was lucky enough to see her go at Upperville.  She was a rare one and lived a long and happy life.  Read about her here.  RIP Rox Dene.

Talbot's Picks

I have not shopped Talbot's in a while but there are some very cute summer items and they have great sales.  Here are a few of my picks just in time for the warmer weather......

This cute gingham jean jacket comes in black and white and in a lighter blue and white.  The black and white one is more versatile.  Wear with white jeans or white pants. 

These somewhat (but not too wide) jeans will be flattering on a lot of figures.

Also love this versatile jean jacket and like that it is not a traditional jean jacket.  Will wear with my Lilly skirts and with likely everything else I own.  See it here.

Shop till you drop!

Fabulous Fabrics

I am revamping my upstairs deck this spring, fresh paint on the floors, the outside walls, new rugs and am recovering the three chairs.  It's been a labor of love and I am almost done.  I did not have time to travel to neighboring cities to shop for fabrics (and I don't need much) and discovered fabulous fabrics on Etsy.  Did you know you can Scotchguard fabrics for outdoor use? Read how to do it here.

The selection is amazing and the prices are generally pretty good.  I love the equestrian fabrics but did not end up selecting equestrian.  My rugs are kelly green which greatly limited my selection.

I'll show you the finished product once I am done.  I tend to love animal fabrics and toile.  

Love finding great stuff on Etsy!

Bath County Beauty

Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains a hop and a skip from the famed Homestead Resort, this beauty is just waiting for it's new owner.  Maple Ridge is a stunning home nestled on 20 or so acres of land in a county that has no stoplights.  Love the rural nature of this locale and the sophistication offered by The Homestead.  The area is also a golfer's nirvana, the home to Sam Snead. He is buried down the road on his son's farm.
