Seated Scroll aka Chair Love

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

Yesterday’s post on PINK and my obsession with that feminine color palette started a cavalcade of inquires about the Paris inspired pink chair I posted. Bearing in mind that my wonderful readers were smitten with  my pretty pink seating of yesterday, I thought you might enjoy a small collection of sensational and stylish  seating….and surprise ,surprise -all have a hint of pink. It’s a little something to sit down and think about….. Enjoy!

Let’s take a Moment and …Think Pink

Posted By: Terri

I woke up early.. I mean like 4 A.M.  early to write . The early morning hours bring me the most clarity and I am  working on a project I’ll  share with you at a later date.

For today’s blog purposes I wanted to share a little bit about my passion for PINK.

Like allot of girly girls, I LOVE Pink. Light pink, dark pink, blush pink..I think you get the message I reallllllly like pink. Happy Sunday and when in doubt..Think Pink-it will perk up your day. Promise. xo

 

In hopes of perking up your day and putting some SPRING in your step I thought I might highlight some pretty pictures with a pop of pink for you to enjoy.

Pink Velvet with Rhinestone Bling… Need I say more?!

My idea of the perfect coat…pink, pearl buttons and fitted to a T.

A pop of pink perks up any coffee table.

Fabric Shopping….and somehow I always find pink something or other..even if it’s hidden.

Pink lighting is ALWAYS flattering

Oscar Sunday..The Envelope Please

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

A quick sneak peak behind the Oscar Envelope…

The Envelope is large and beautifully embossed…

A few years ago, I attended a luncheon from the production company in charge of designing and providing the envelopes for the Oscars.  P.S. This was NOT the company that  caused the major envelope debacle of 2018 but  had supplied all Oscar envelopes prior. I thought  you might enjoy a little 411 on this integral part of the Oscar Ceremony. And the Winner is…..

 

The envelope is no light weight. 1/4 inch thick(think heavier then the most luxe wedding invitations) and 1/8 inch thick

 

Envelopes are kept under lock and key..literally!
