Off to get a root canal. Yuck. So I'm leaving you with something pretty.

Sorry, can't remember where this image is from. If someone remembers, let me know!

A Pop

I had some pillows finally sewn up(thanks Tiffany!) for the house in this amazing Windsor Smith fabric for Kravet. It's described as a heavy duty linen and I have to agree. It's definitely a workhouse fabric and her goods do not disappoint. Now for that bench...

PS Check out Pink Wallpaper's post for a great deal this week on her fabrics

There is a saying that old friends make the best friends.
I tend to agree.
Our Friends the Turoskys live in the most enchanted "cottage" deep in the forest. They asked us over for an impromptu Fourth of July celebration. Of course we jumped at the offer.

After a night of summer cocktails, grilled honey mustard turkey, fireworks, and singing by the piano it was time to return to the City. Oh what friends we have indeed.

Happy Fourth!

Hope you all are enjoying family and friends.

It's hard not to talk about people when they move to town. Especially when they are super talented and take over a downtown boutique making it that much chicer. Jon Chernes and Matt Drace are the shopkeepers of the Lavish boutique in downtown Scranton. Think House Beautiful, Town and Country Magazine, Martha Living Omnimedia to name a few. They have worked at the top for them all. Lavish started out as strictly a bath and body boutique (with two fabulous previous owners who put their neck out there in some less cosmopolitian times in our dear city). But Matt and Jon have taken it to the next level with chic housewares, a mini spa with decor that makes you sink in and forget about your late day work(ahhhm, perhaps personally speaking with one of the cute duo talking me into a bit of vino), and still the best body goods in town. If you are in town, I wouldn't hesitate to visit. Tell em House & Life sent you.
