items of interest...

we are home from our weekend getaway to lake geneva, wisconsin. this time stayed over at the grand geneva resort & spa. i love that it's about an hour and a half north of chicago.

it was freezing yesterday, but that didn't stop me from venturing over to a few of my favorite shops in lake geneva.  first off, i stopped over at brick & mortar home. i really like the sail totes below:
for a split second about buying one. then i thought about my post about having too many totes/duffles and decided to pass! i swear one of these days i will purchase one of these boat totes! maybe when i am out in newport, rhode island this summer? 
okay, i am really hating blogger at the moment, i see now why i was in NO hurry to switch over to new blogger format! sheesh, moving pictures around SUCKS!  ...sorry for the rant!!!

oh well, below are images of other items i came across while wondering around the store.

okay, maybe i will think again about posting lots of photos in one post! sheesh!

okay, over at the cornerstone shop i came across this adorable needlepoint sail pillow.  
over at the bootery, i came across a few pars of HUNTER boots on sale for only $75.00! tempting based on price, but i prefer the "huntress" style. no, i do NOT wear a size 10! try an 8.5 /9, lol!!
 next up over at abbellimeto i came across this monogrammed vietri table setting from italy. i didn't even bother to check the price tag, one i have enough place settings and two i am sure it was upwards of a couple of hundred dollars, lol!!

hard to believe, but i actually only purchased this elephant soap dish at brick & mortar. it was too cute to pass up and for only $15....SOLD! 
oh well, below is a photo from geneva lake. as you can tell, clearly it's still winter! ugh, lake geneva is such a fun vibrant place to visit in the summer. one thing i like about coming up in the off season is that it isn't swarming with tourists like the summer months!
oh well, it's time to make dinner! have a great night!
