through old town Orange, I came across this little purple cottage, well it’s
actually more of a periwinkle color, and I had to stop and take a closer
look. The plaque on the front says it
was built in 1900. I just love all the
period details and the fact that they were not afraid to use some color to highlight
the architectural charm.

Day is a few months away, but it’s never too early to think about special
things for my mom, especially with Valentine’s Day and her birthday coming up. There is a fabulous Helen Ficalora store in
Beverly Hills and I recently connected with them. Helen Ficalora creates
beautiful and simple customizable jewelry, and they were so kind to send me a
sterling silver “MOM” necklace. It has
become one of my favorite pieces to wear daily.
It looks great layered with other necklaces, or just on its own. I wanted to share with you all these lovely
options for mom. These pendant charms
come in yellow, pink and white gold and also in sterling silver. Some even have diamond accents. The best part about it for me, is they have the
cutest grandmother pendants too! My mom
is Mimi, so that would be perfect for her, and the pink gold is so pretty!
love how the owners of this 1906 Victorian home decorated it with elements that reflect their love of Paris.
The front of the house looks like a stately turn of the century Marin
County home, but as soon as you enter, you are transported to Europe by the gorgeous
color palette, antique furniture, and sophisticated style. With all that said, they kept the home
feeling light and airy by painting all the wood floors a bright white. What do you think about this mix of Victorian
and Parisian styles? Read more about
