Editor's Note: Today I am wearing Lucy Marie Jeans, a sweater from H&M,
a custom made belt with a sterling silver and turquoise belt buckle, and Vince Camuto pumps!
I try to surround myself with beautiful things everyday that make myself happy. Some beautiful things that I surround myself with are treasured antique pieces that I have either purchased or inherited. Others are as simple as flowers that I have on my table. I think you can make everyday of your life special by incorporating things in your surroundings that bring you joy. Here are some pictures of things in my home that in my opinion add beauty to my life everyday!
This is my breakfast and dinner table! I keep fresh roses on this table every week and I use a mixture of antique and new china.
This is a fancy way to eat an egg that only takes 5 minutes and it makes me feel like I am in a fancy hotel!
All my sheets and towels have monograms on them. They fancier the better! I am a sheet snob and my sheets are ironed and starched.
It just adds a little something extra that makes me happy every night when I get into bed. I also like a lot of down pillows.
I love my custom bedding and the antique plates that surround the watercolor that hangs over my bed. A love the mixture of old and new and it always makes me happy to look at. The little boudoir pillow is from the Pillow Bar which now is sold at Wrest.
This antique lamp beside my bed sends me to the moon every time I look at it.
Riley's Tyler Rose Festival picture and my vintage prints also give me a thrill every time I look at them!
This is one of the bookcases in my bedroom that has everything in it from artwork that my mother made in school, to antique accessories, to new pictures of Riley and Harrison. Lots of memories that always warm my heart!
This is my dressing table. The round silver container on the tray and the rectangular box with stones on top to the right were my great-grandmothers. I try to keep a little orchid or flowers on my dressing table to add a bit of elegance to my everyday life.
Another corner of my dressing table with family pictures and my beloved Herend.
I love to drink water out of antique glasses and I almost always use linen napkins. Life is too short to be cheap!
I keep nice lotions, soaps, and candles next to my sink at all times and love the touch of a crystal candlestick!
This is on top of a secretary in my room. These picture of my kids when they were little always make me smile!
A grouping of Herend next to my bed. I absolutely adorn Herend and love the mixture of the fresh rose mixed in with it!
I have been collecting Herend for 28 years.
Elegance does not have to be expensive!
This song always makes my heart sing! We ate dinner out last night and Rivercrest. I had a meat patty with a salad.
No carbs for me! Skipping the french fries was really hard!
