An Aqualicious Day

I woke up this morning
only to find myself

in aqua


a day when my old absinthe fountain
mouthwash fountain

( just applied a french label then mixed both clear and turquoise mouthwash to get the perfect shade )

a day for beautiful handmade vintage number books from
Fanciful Designs

a day when stilettos and inflatable pool toys

a day for an antique french monogrammed plate from
French Blue and Co

A day that I buzz about town on this ...

A day of velvet ribbon in every watery shade imaginable at Britex in SF

*sigh*!!! That was gorgeous! A beautiful and fresh post Lisa. Now I'm on the hunt for an absinth fountain! That is just perfect. I love that idea! The image of the ribbon made my heart flutter for a second!!! Happy Friday to you!

TheSuiteLife said...

GORGEOUS! I'm going to have to try something similar for mouthwash. So glam!!!

Paris Hotel Boutique said...

Okay, Judith and I are both on the hunt for an absinth fountain. OMG, you are so creative!!! Where did you find that Lisa?

And, thank you for the mention too!

Paris Hotel Boutique said...

Lisa, I couldn't help myself. Just posted about your creation! I want to buy one, but no room in our little bathrooms...(:

Judith and Lynn, if you can't find the real thing there are plenty of reproductions out there ( I think Posh Chicago ? ). Also, Absinthe was re-introduced to restaurants and bars about 5 years ago ( sans the wormwood ). If you know someone in the restaurant industry, many bars were given these from the absinthe companies for free ( and many do not use them ).

Saw that The Paris Apartment and The Paris Hotel have you featured in their blogs today, too! Looks like the House of Golightly is in fine fettle.

Congrats on the partnership with The Paris Apartment. Will you be selling any customized items on her site?
