Thanksgiving Weekend Relaxation


Espresso silk ikat pillows new to the shop on Tuesday. Love!

A Tuesday night trip to Mrs. Howard of Charlotte for Amanda Nisbet's, Dazzling Design, book signing.  She was so fun and easy to talk too.  I felt like we were long lost friends. 

I pass these siblings each morning on my walk. Wednesday they were posing…I could not resist.


I serious indulgence of brunch at The Flying Biscuit.  These grits…no words.

Dinner at our favorite sushi spot, Cowfish. YUM!

My fortune was prophetic of my impending weekend.  Thankful for that!

My turkey trotters and Gigi.

Gigi and waffles resting in the sun prior to the big meal…

The famed turkey cake displayed by my sister in law also known as the best cook in the world.  

One of the 3 Thanksgiving tables… so pretty. I love the antlers…

The spread before digging in…

The dessert spread. crazy right?

Gigi buried in fall…

another of the tables with Michelle Armas in the background…

we safely arrived in the mountains to rest…that is being accomplished…I did insane amounts of Black Friday and Saturday internet shopping and browsing. I cooked the best shrimp and grits I have ever made sans recipe. We slept late, went to friends for smore's, drank good wine and took the dogs on long and COLD walks.  

Loved this quote in a local banner elk restaurant….so true.

I noticed I reached 15k on Pinterest.. insanity!

A lovely lunch today at Puerto Nuevo, my favorite local Mexican.  My soup was at last a 1/2 gallon bowl.  It was delish and leftovers for days…

Afterwards we popped next door to an "antique" shop of sorts.  Here were my favorites if only I lived in Jackson Hole…

adore this chaise in an all white modern room…

We actually bought these vintage horse head fire tools.  They need a good cleaning but are fab!

Violet trying out cool saddle stools. Love her look of leopard poncho and boots….a chip off the old block…

Gigi making herself comfortable…as usual.

I dropped in Hardin Fine Jewelry and helped out the Small Business Saturday.  I could not resist the cuff.  

Tonight brings a fire, football and a lazy bunch on the sofa… then back to the real world:(

We are so blessed.

How was your long weekend?
