Welcome to the weekend

It's been a long time since our last post and we are terribly behind in commenting back to all of you who have left a comment in the last weeks.  Life has been a bit crazed lately and we needed a little break. We have been repainting the house inside and getting our patio and deck ready for summer. Lots of decorating and chaos of stuff all over while we redo the rooms. Family is coming in for a week at the end of the month so we have been in over drive trying to get it all done before they arrive. But we are loving our new little home and looking forward to enjoying the weekend. 

What I'm looking forward too is wearing a beautiful caftan while relaxing on my back patio drinking my morning coffee and listening to the sound birds singing while my kitty's play and roll in the grass.
Caftan and beach cover up from Calypso-Celle. 
I just Love huge sun Hats! I recently read that wearing one makes you look old at the beach. However, I'm afraid to say that it's the beautiful sun that ultimately ages you and a perfectly big straw beach hat is elegant and always fabulous.

The hanging chair and my absolutely favorite coffee cups ever from Anthropologie.
I drink from my V cup every day it's the perfect size for a cup of coffee. 
Dream destination or Heaven if you'd rather.

Last week we visited a talented young designer and shot some pieces of her collection.  We can't wait to share it all with you! We also just received some amazing pieces from another design company that we are planning a photo shoot for. So stay tuned and we promise to comment back to all of you fab bloggers this weekend who thoughtfully left us a note.

Happy weekend

XX Valerie and Camilla
