Life Really IS.....

Bird loves summer.   Duchess...not so much. She adores cold weather.  But this is Duchess writing today, so I thought I would share a few thoughts.  My current new favorite color is "Laduréé green" ..if you've even been to that amazing Tea Salon in Paris you know just what I'm referring to.  I have two of these darling latte bowls in that color that I got at Anthropologie.  While eating fresh cherries from my bowl yesterday, I was struck by how gorgeous the color was, how perfect the cherries were ( in appearance and taste) and decided that summer has magical treasures to offer.  You just have to open your eyes and "See." I'm so glad I did.
What is your favorite season?  We love hearing from you.

By the way, keep watching our blog for updates on our planned tour to Paris next April.  We will take you to Laduréé!

Summer Markets

Duchess and I love to shop as many antique and vintage markets as we can over the summer that are near and far from home.  This July offers a bonanza of markets on the west coast and we will shop as many as we can to bring you the best of them.

Bird will be going to the huge Portland Expo next weekend with over 1200 booths beside her local antique markets.  Duchess scooped up some terrific finds at a Seattle area vintage fair and will return to a favorite one the end of the month.

We can't wait to show you our new finds and tell you all about them!  We would love to hear where you go to find treasures and if you have a favorite show or shop.

Enjoy your 4th of July celebrations!
