THE KIND OF LADIES WHO SERVED COCKTAILS AT FIVE


Hillary Thomas of CHIC SHOP pays tribute to our graceful and stylish grandmothers. I absolutely love this idea and what it represents. I have my Nana's barware and I treasure every glass. My sisters and I love to toast with these glam glasses and have such wonderful memories associated with them. Hillary Thomas is right, our grandmothers dressed up. They always looked chic and wore heels. You would never catch them wearing sweats and a tee! I still have some of my grandmother's clothes and can wear them. Why? Because they are timeless and my grandmother had great style.
The only thing missing in this room are a few old fashioned gold lowball glasses in our hands. 
Who could resist the colors in Christopher Farr's Carnival fabric?
Hillary's store looks so inviting and full of treasures. I hope to visit CHIC SHOP while in L.A. next month when I am there visiting my sister for her 40th celebration! I will make sure to pick up a few lowballs, so we can celebrate in style my Nana would be proud!
I am sure you devoured Lonny this weekend like we did. If you haven't you really should.  Their focus on 
 products that give back is inspiring. I fell in love with this pillow from Mercado Global and I am off to go order...
I have no guilt at all... I'm giving back, right?!

  1. I will have to go there when I go to LA next. I miss shopping there, I lived there for 8 years. And I wasn't able to reply to your comment because you are down as a no reply blogger. {here is a link on how to fix that if you want: http://www.dandee-designs.com/2012/02/avoiding-no-reply-comments-in-blogger.html }But I wanted you to know the lamps are from kirklands.com. I love them!

    1. Oh good! I had trouble with that for a little while and then messed around with it and changed it without even knowing how I did so I was so happy when someone posted their directions :) Glad it helped

  3. How fun to have your grandmother's glasses! It has become the great debate in our family over who will get my grandmother's china... which sounds really bad as I am typing it. Love that pillow, too! Thinking about buying it myself!!

  4. Great post! Ladies were much classier back then weren't they? I strive to be more like that! I've started by collecting my own set of respectable vintage barware! Now to get rid of the sweat pants...

    I hope you have time to visit Chic Shop! It looks amazing!

    1. I do think that era was ever so glam! Would love to rock some sassy heels and a fab dress while drinking some something fun about now! :)

  6. Now that my husband in town I'm hoping to send you some pictures soon. However in each post I see different things to help you understand my idea. I love the lanterns. I am looking for something like that which would fitwork the proportions of my foyer. I also have custom bookcases with drawers that need fun and whimsical knobs.
