Happy Columbus Day

The Potted Boxwood

If you are looking for an elegant way to decorate for Halloween, this is great inspiration. A beautiful display of white pumpkins and don't miss the skeletons in the planters next to the front door. So fun!

Still in hurricane recovery mode at CCC. My insurance adjuster was here over the weekend and today I have my gardeners, roofer, and gutter folks coming. We dodged a bullet here in Venice, but winds of well over 100 miles an hour and 20 inches of rain in 18 hours are not without consequences. My house is very well built and it's just cosmetic issues really. I was very fortunate.

So today I am staying in to deal with all my appointments and will do some shopping online with the Columbus Day Sales.

Jack Rogers is having a sitewide 30% off Friends and Family Sale here with code FALL30.

L.L.Bean has 10% off here with code PUMPKIN10 - a great chance to pick up monogrammed boat and totes for Christmas gift giving.

J.Crew has an extra 60% off sale styles here with code SHOPFALL.

Don't miss Amanda Lindroth's Tag Sale here with an additional 40% off discount taken in your cart - I have two of the tall pagodas arriving today!

Up to 50% off at Frontgate - this gorgeous pagoda that I have is reduced from $499 to $210 here.

Blue and White Pagoda

I treated myself to a new iPhone 14 that arrived yesterday. I got the blue of course! I'm still playing around with it, but the camera is fantastic.

  1. I couldn't take my eyes off the planters with the boxwood and ivy. They are gorgeous!

  2. At first glance, I thought the white pumpkins were arranged to look like a mother rabbit with all her babies, but maybe that's just how I saw them.

  3. Thanks for the heads up! I got my L.L.Bean order in at 11:57pm! 😅
