deja vu giveaway!

My daughter, Blair, and I would like to share with you some new Deja Vu necklaces we love.  We thought necklaces would be versatile for summertime.  As a bonus, we’re giving away ALL three featured necklaces pictured in this post!


We snapped a few photos this morning to show you how they look in person.


1.  This little turquoise tassel number I’m wearing has become my summer go-to accessory.  It’s the perfect touch of color.  It also comes in pink, which is darling.


2.  Blair snatched this coral and navy necklace the second she saw it.  That’s one of the nice part of Deja Vu jewelry – it is multigenerational, haha.  She paired it with her new summer dress.


3.  Another favorite bauble is this pearl tassel necklace, which instantly transforms an outfit from drab to chic.  You could put it with the plainest tee and skirt and suddenly the outfit pops.  Looks great against black (very Chanel), stripes, cream, or with a splash of color.

It’s such an easy piece to wear with anything.  I wore it this week with a black and white tunic that I’ve had forever.   


We had to include Chapeau, who has practically taken over my instagram feed with her shenanigans.  She is also one of the official Deja Vu “models” –  you can see her on their home page and in their bird nest box video.  I’m not kidding, this chicken loves posing for the camera.  By-the-way, note the ALIVE plants on my porch…we’re going on 4 weeks!! 



Today we’re giving away ALL THREE of these beautiful necklaces to one lucky lady:  The turquoise or  pink tassel necklace, the coral and navy necklace 2, and pearl tassel necklace.  These are great summer pieces!  You can check out all the other sassy Deja Vu jewelry over here.  So many baubles to choose from, all great prices.


Leave a comment answering this question:  Which animal has been your favorite pet and why?  I would have to say my horse, Savez, who has been such a gift in my life.  Although our chickens are a close second – their craziness always keeps us entertained!  One comment/entry per person.  Email entries to me do not qualify.  Winner announced on Tuesday, July 1st.

Thanks to sponsor, Deja Vu for hosting such a fun giveaway!

wednesday white mani

My favorite nail color for summer is a nice, clean white.  It’s such a fresh look and goes with everything.  Plus it makes me think of the beach.


When our cousins were visiting last week, I couldn’t help but notice Lolly’s beautiful nails.  A soft white with the slightest shimmer, like a string of freshwater pearls.  She told me the color is Kyoto Pearl by OPI.  Let me tell you, it is one pretty white.  Not too sheer, not too opaque.

I totally forgot to take a picture of her mani, but the result is very similar to these seashell penny tiles, which would be gorgeous in the backsplash of a bathroom, by the way.  Or the backsplash in a butler’s pantry coming off the kitchen.  Found some here and here.

Love finding new nail polish colors.  This one’s a classic.  I plan to try this color out for my next manicure.

This post might be a little random – my coffee never kicked in this morning so I’m feeling a little less focused than normal.  Does this ever happen to anyone or have my adrenal glands officially kicked the bucket?

Wanted to give you an update on my flower and boxwood planting attempts.  Yes, I actually planted them…and yes, they have lived for more than 3 weeks now.  Woo hoo!  I think next I’ll attempt to put this little guy in our keeping room.


And you know I’m always decorating our imaginary farmhouse.  Lately I love the idea of using a deep grey somewhere.  Whether it’s in the living room, a study, interior doors, or outside on an adorable potting shed.



My favorite shade of dark grey right now is Dragon’s Breath by Benjamin Moore.  The name kind of makes me think of the term coffee breath, ha.  Except Dragon’s Breath is completely wonderful and doesn’t cause people to back away three feet.

Cheers to caffeine addiction, breath mints, great paint, and plants that live well into old age!
