Celebrating James #40

J & I were so enthused to host our BFFs Melanie (@onelittlejaybird) and her hubby James. James was celebrating his 40th birthday milestone weekend, and we were so happy he chose New Orleans.

Oh yes! It was a hot and humid weekend, but we enjoyed eating, drinking, shopping, and catching up. We visited many of our favorite local stops on their weekend journey.

Eats: Audubon Clubhouse, Upperline, La Petite Grocery, & Mr. B's Bistro

Drinks: La Petite Grocery, Upperline, Sazerac Bar, The Carousel Bar, Jeremy Davenport Lounge at The Ritz

Shops: Perlis, Hazelnut, Pied Nu, Jean Therapy, AKA Stella Gray, Perch, NOLA Couture, Aux Belles Choses, Rivers Spencer, Billy Reid, LD Decor, Pavement.

We love to show out-of-towners a good time at our favorite places in our great city. It is so funny how we all have not seen each other in such a long time but seem to pick up right where we left off. That is when you know you have some good, close and true friends.

Happy 40th, Jamey!

Celebrating James, y'all!!!

"I'm 'delighted' to be back as your host for the 24th Share Your Style party!!  This week at Dixie Delights I shared our summer lemonade stand, kicked off a #colormehappyparty on Instagram, and shared all sorts of details on our week in Savannah (starting here)."


The Joyful Home shared a delish sounding recipe for Mint Limeade.  I have loads of mint growing in our garden and cannot wait to try this!

Acorn Dish

I am loving the Caskata dish I purchased at Watson Kennedy in Seattle. The dish features several gold-colored acorns, the French symbol for prosperity and perfect for the Uptown Acorn. 

I love small plates like this as containers for curiosities as well as a place to display candles.

The zinc letters were found in Portland at Porch Light. I am having fun displaying my travel finds.

How is your summer?

Acorn dish, y'all!
