Cool Off with Courtly Check

The Dog Days of Summer

Or as the French say,


In any language, this time of year is


But I know a place with cool temps and cool things.

Come along with me to . . .

Neiman Marcus' Gift Gallery

And my favorite MacKenzie-Childs' look

~ Courtly Check~

Ottomans, Pillows, and Poofs

Courtly Checks and Courtly Stripes . . .

With a punch of red.

Whimsical Fun!

A fashionable mix for the table.

Delicate porcelain from

Mustardseed and Moonshine, South Africa . . .

Absolutely adore these

fabulous chargers in poppy red . . .

And the Courtly Check covered cake plate

ready to head out to a picnic.

Bowl Full of Sparkly Courtly Check Balls

Organically Styled

Metal Accent Pieces From Donna Karan

A Bit of Asian Influence

Bamboo Chargers by Juliska,

topped with MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check dinner plate,

Mustardseed and Moonshine salad plate in poppy red,

and porcelain noodle bowl with chopsticks by Donna Karan.

Such a clever presentation with the

chopsticks an integral part of the noodle bowl design.

Interesting Layers of 

Color, Pattern, Texture

Beaded Coral Napkin Ring,
