Julia caught my
attention in last month’s InStyle with all of her cute fashion choices. She’s
looking better than ever, and she can go from zero to sixty at a drop of a hat. Glam one minute, and mom the next!

A bar cart doesn't have to
exclusively serve alcoholic beverages. They can be a pretty focal point in your
home whether you’re entertaining or not. A few pretty bottles, fresh flowers
and a personalized touch or two can elevate any bar cart to superstar status!
This way, you will always be
ready if friends drop by!
A beautiful box can provide extra storage.
Perfect indoors, or out.
Bar carts always look so pretty near a window...
be creative with your set up...
The one below is one I set up a
few years ago for a small pool party in my back yard. I like to serve soft drinks in fun "cocktail" glasses for fun! It's so much more elegant!
of our family’s favorite stops in Seattle is the Woodland Park Zoo, and right
next door is the gorgeous Rose Garden that was originally opened in 1924. As we entered
the stately gates, we were delighted to find a really unique and quaint formal garden
with lots of pretty little surprises.
first caught my eye, were the really tall topiary trees that are pruned in a really
fanciful way. They really anchor the
space and tone down the seriousness of the formal rose garden.
cozy spots to sit and observe the garden are scattered throughout the
park. There is a pretty little gazebo, a
shady arbor and a few fountains set perfectly among the hundreds of roses and
other flowers and trees.
blue hydrangeas were mesmerizing!
you just love those funny swirly looking trees?
view from the gazebo is perfect!
if you don’t go to the zoo, which is also a treat,
