As I have said repeatedly, I LOVE champagne. For me it is the ultimate Simple Pleasure/Little Luxury!
I love this idea of Tangerine Sorbet Champagne Floats.
And with all of summer’s lovely flowers in bloom, why not take the time to do the flower petals in ice cubes for chilling a great bottle of champagne!
Savor the moment and enjoy!
Here are a few images of fabulous powder rooms that I would recommend for design inspiration!
Chestnut Cottage Party Tea!
With lots of hot, lazy summer days ahead, I thought you might enjoy an old recipe from Chestnut Cottage…”Party Tea”
While on my visit to the Orlando Antiques Show, I had the pleasure of meeting Renee Garrison. Yesterday, Renee sent me an article she had recently written for the Tampa Tribune and I thought you might enjoy the article and these lovely collection, especially the papier-mache. I am honored that my ideas on collecting help inspire this article!

Oh how I adore spring and spring has arrived in all of its glory at Chestnut Cottage. Gardening is the best medicine for anyone with a stressful, hectic lifestyle! Last week I took off on Wednesday and had a glorious time doing all of my window boxes and containers. Who could not be overflowing with joy, surrounded by peonies, lilacs, lupines, rhododendron and all of the other glorious perennials!
I have a few new additions to the Chestnut Cottage garden, like this incredible Allium Schubertii!
Gardening brings me so much joy…not to mention all the fabulous cut flowers for “collected tabletops” and all over Chestnut Cottage! Definitely worth the investment of time.
