Turkey time table manners.  "Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others.  If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use." - Emily Post

Queen of Spades.  Do you ever walk into a store, and feel like it was created just for you?  Like someone dreamt up a brand tailor made for your style?  I tend to feel that way about Kate Spade.  After perusing their new arrivals today, I think I might have to splurge on the Merino 'Ooh la-la!' sweater.

Table for two.  This time a year ago, Casey and I were a little less than a month away from tying the knot.  Suddenly my parents' living room was transformed into a winter wonderland.  Because it was so packed with moss filled vases, ivory stick trees and other holiday decorations; we were unable to hold our traditional Thanksgiving feast at the pink house.  Pictured above is one of the remnants from the affair - an Edwardian script table number accented with vintage glass glitter.

Les Cadeaux Fantastiques.  It's here!  It's here!  The 2011 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book just recently came out.  If I had all the money in the world I would purchase one of each of these "fantasy gifts".   One International Flower Show Tour for all the ladies to fuss over, and one Neiman Marcus Edition Hacker-Craft Speedboat for men to smoke cigars on.  Got it, Santa?
Prima Ballerina Paint Palette.  Take note from these tutu inspired tints via House Beautiful Magazine.  A charming take on traditional fall hues, with a splash of pink and lilac.
