I'm glad that you decided to visit today, because we've got some exciting giveaways!
This coming week we're celebrating the 5K milestone of Instagram followers of Rhiann and Ron from Quince Cottage! CONGRATS you two!
Just to tell you a bit about them, their a lovely husband and wife team, based in a small town outside of North Carolina. I've been so fortunate to have developed a friendship with Rhiann.
Rhiann and Ron have the wonderful blog, Quince Cottage, which is dedicated to sharing their vision of for turning a cookie-cutter suburban house into a distinctive and beautiful home. The blog is full of beautiful photos and design ideas, home selling/buying tips, "keeper" recipes, gardening success stories, and cute doggie pictures... Also, they started the wonderful hashtag #MagpieMonday, where you share your favorite collections on Instagram. I tell you, it's so much fun!!
So, now the giveaway and how to enter...
You know how I love my hotel silver and French items, right? I'm offering this antique teapot from the Republican club, along with a Victorian French menu (above) to celebrate Quince Cottage!

Tomorrow, May 9th (France time), La Tour d’Argent, a Parisian shrine to the art of fine dining that traces its roots to the 16th century, is selling off tableware, furnishings and cooking implements as it seeks to reinvent itself for the 21st century.
The French auction house Arterial is holding the sale from the restaurant. Among the lots on offer are 2,700 Riedel wine glasses ; a silver lidded chalice that was a gift from a satisfied diner, the former king of Cambodia, Norodom Sihanouk; and a 16th-century Aubusson carpet that covered the first-floor ceiling of the restaurant’s building on the left bank of the Seine, and a silvered duck press, emblematic of the restaurant’s signature dish. “We never actually used this one,” Mr. Terrail said of the press, which carries an estimate of $4,300 to $6,500. “We had it as a presentational piece. We have three other presses, two that we use and one in reserve.” Pressed duck — on the menu for 160 euros, or about $174 — remains a linchpin of the Tour d’Argent’s updated menu under the chef Laurent Delarbre.
Sign up here to bid and view items for this two day auction! I'm just drooling over some of these pieces!
The two woman who shaped my life...my grandmother, Tillie, on the left, that helped raise me, and my mom, Phyllis on the right.
So difficult not having these women in my life. It's just so strange not having a mother...
On this Mother's Day, wishing all of you wonderful mothers, aunts, grandmothers a very special day. And to all that don't have moms, they will forever be in our hearts...
