Cool Off with Courtly Check

The Dog Days of Summer

Or as the French say,

"Canicule"

In any language, this time of year is

HOT ~ HOT ~ HOT

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

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 . . .

ready to head out to a picnic.
