I am always on the lookout for totes, anything to carry my papers, computer, magazines, books (not kindle) lipstick, food on the airplane.  When I was at the last New York show, I spotted these totes . Voila!!!!! I knew they were right for me and the store. Beautiful, good looking, they cried out “BUY ME” So, I did. I ordered the totes, computer carriers and pillows, all of which you will be seeing on my website when we update for the upcoming Holiday season. To top off this great find,lancewovens-luxenyspread images-2 images-8 images-10 images-7 the salesperson showed me the pillows, I went out of my mind. These leather pillows are so wonderful and clean and chic, you have to get one to believe it!

So LANCE WOVENS was my great find at the show. We have many at the store and we are more than happy to order anything would wouild like!!!!


Hedgehouse Throw Beds, story from the New York Times


Gordon M. Grant for The New York Times














Love this story from the New York Times…”Utility and aesthetics may not always see eye to eye, but this bit of fluff suggests that, on a nice day at least, they can put their differences aside, lie back and relax, together.” Link to more of the New York Times story.

I can’t wait, not only will she be bring more summer ideas, she will also bringing new fall tabletop. I don’t  want to get ahead of myself, I only want to think of summer, dinner in the patio, birthday parties for friends, romantic dinners and dancing in our fruit orchard… Some of my very favorite pieces from Kim Seybert are her outdoor melamine products, napkins and napkin rings. Most of her pieces and the colors are all about the beauty of nature.

Whether I am entertaining or just relaxing in my home…by Leslie

I do enjoy having candles lit. They create ambiance and are a simple way for setting the mood…the tempo…At Bellissimo we have a number of lines that you can select from. Lafko, a favorite for their recyclable glass containers and scents that are created for different rooms of your home, are also wonderful hostess gifts for any occasion. Dayna Decker, another resource for us, is known for her patented EcoWood wick (you think you’re fire side) and botanical wax, scented by understated sensual perfumes and housed in simple modern glass. A personal favorite, is a candle developed and designed by NEST and Sir Elton John. His latest project, the Woodside Garden candle was inspired by his luxurious English gardens and favorite flowers. The clean crisp floral scent might remind you of fresh cut grass…with whiffs of rose, then jasmine, some freesia and finally hyacinth…..and I love the bright chartreuse glass and simple gold crown embellishment!! The best part…all sales of the candle profit his foundation, the Sir Elton John AIDS foundation. The foundation helps to educate the public and support individuals suffering with AIDS…what’s not to love?
