Happy Valentines Day to all of you, dear friends, family, and readers!  Here's what I'm obsessing over today.  

Red Smeg fridge.  West Elm is selling these now along with a myriad of other great kitchen necessities, including some black and white enamel cooking ware I'm obsessing over.  {Locals, there is no distributor here for the smeg fridge, unfortunately.  I tried to order one for a client:(}  
Light blue grasscloth wall.  With the raspberry upholstered chair.  SO sweet.  

I spied this amazing geronimo balloon creation over on IG.  Couldn't find it on their website, so I'm assuming this one is hot off the press.  Is it not beautiful???!  No local deliveries here either.  Wishing a local floral shop would make things like this.  

Now locals, and any other connoisseur of fine delights, my daughter, Eleanor, is the master baker at Tea Bar and Bites.  This is just one of her many IG photos she takes of the delectable treats she bakes daily for them.  I've got to go GET ONE in my mouth, and you should too.  

Also, obsessing over the 2013 fall collection of Alice and Olivia.  #NYFW has the skirt of my dreams, as well as work day/cocktail attire one could only wish for.  To see the collection hot off the runway, go here.    It's retro, brocade, sophisticated, romantic yet modern, and big into flower prints.  I love the shapes and fabrics so much.  {This ensemble pictured above is from Stacy Bendet's spring collection.}

I'll leave you with a poem by John Keats to Fanny Browne.  It made me dream of floating away in a hot air balloon, gifting some blue heart balloons to my girls and boys, and watching a fun movie like Bright Star, A Royal Affair, or Out of Africa.  Three MUST-SEE movies!

"I am sailing with thee thru through the dizzy sky!  How beautiful thou art!"~John Keats

Happy thoughts, and day, LOVES.
