For Me-For You

If you like to wear something a little different in the earring department, skip on over to Bhati Beads. Their silk knot earringsare inexpensive and set off a white shirt quite nicely. For the next two days there is a 30% off sale (coupon b2day). Just think these earrings can be had for less than $20.00.

Sorry the pictures aren't that crisp-I have the pink/navy-blue/white, and the bright red. With all the money you save you can spurlge on a jacket from the Old Habit. While they are meant for riding, they look quite nice with any well cut trousers.

The one above is on sale.

Suburban Sprawl

Help-forget the freshman 15, I have suburban sprawl. Any ideas for better eating exercising that won't break the bank or the back?

What can't you monogram

I actually am thinking of getting some of these-I love the idea of monograming hangars. You'll always be able to find yours. Check out

Name that house

Driving home from work I often zone out thinking about the house in my head. You know the one you would have from all those tear sheets you keep. My house is going to have a name. My husband thinks thats pretenious. My mother's childhood home had a name-it looks great on stationery and even if people don't know your name they know the house name. I haven't come up with anything, but maybe the folks at the Chatham Sign Shop will have some ideas when the time comes. Dark green would do nicely. But the name won't be Whispering Pines (my daughter's suggestion, just sounds like a run down motel in the middle of no where.

Barbour Jackets

Do the crisp fall days make you long for the equestrienne look-you know quilted barn jacket and boots. Well if so go check out Sierra Trading Post-not only are the Barbour and John Partridge jackets reduced you get an additional 20% off. Not bad.

East End Shopping

The fishing trip was a success for hubby, some bass (but no keepers-I like fish, especially when it is served in a restaurant). As reward for my patience and lack of whinning, though watching someone else fish is similar to watching moss grow, we stopped in East Hampton. I love the shop Home James, which also has a web site. Sorrow upon sorrow they were closed. These are the things I currently have my eye on. I particularly love the wine cooler-I have coffee mugs in the oriental design, which you either love or loathe.
I have my eye on these-waiting for a sale.
These would make my day start out with a smile. My in laws think I am nuts, since I only use cloth napkins. Believe or not the piece on top is a napkin ring.

Wouldn't you be happy to drink out of this mug?

My coffee mugs are in this pattern. They have great color.

And to keep my lists all together- I love this little book.

Have a great weekend!

Woe is me continued

Good news it appears as though Chase has come through. The charges are gone...

though why they didn't call me is a mystery.

I have a date for the next two days....Montauk for hold your breath fishing. I even have the outfit- what we do for love. I am firm in my desire to hit the shops in Easthampton and Southampton - though I won't be wearing this fetching outfit.
Thats not me-just some lucky model. No one looks good in these thing!!! They are worse than bike pants-but at least I will get some beachtime.

Woe is me

Being the dutiful accountant-cash manager that I am, I always check to see if my payments for credit cards have posted. Imagine my horror on Friday when I saw multiple charges for hotels in China! Never been there and certainly would not have racked up that many charges in one day.

Its scary when someone else has used your number.
