Sunday shopping in East Hampton

No visit to East Hampton would be complete without popping into Loaves and Fishes Cook shop and a stop at The Milk Pail Farm.  I love to entertain and when a season like Fall comes along, I know I will be hosting many dinner parties. So getting some new gadgets is always a must! 

I love this rustic country setting.

OK can we talk about china... I collect china and I have started a collection for all of my daughters. I am like a moth to the flame when I see something inspirational.....I mean c'mon these plates look like they came straight from Positano....THEY ARE PLASTIC!!!!!

Holiday cookies are right around the corner. I adore cookie cutters especially copper ones.

The funny thing about Barefoot Contessa products? They are as good as homemade!

Apples, pumpkins, country weekends... I love!

How great are these?

Pull up to the Milk Pail Farm - and there's a great selection of pumpkins.

This grouping just made me happy. I call my three daughters my three little pumpkins...

This one was perfect for me

I plan on filling a large wooden basket with these for my dining room table center piece.

Pumpkins on a flat bed.  My husband wouldn't let me tow them home.

The Milk Pail's pride and joy.  This was the biggest they say in all the the Hamptons this year!

The ladies at The Milk Pail were so helpful and I learned a lot about their history. Their farm dates back to the 1600's.... I left with apples, pears, and few pumpkins. It was an easy decision to come home and make Ina's pear/apple sauce.  Incredible day!

Lunch with Ina Garten in East Hampton

I love The Barefoot Contessa - Ina Garten.  I own and cook from all of her books because they are tried and true kitchen tested recipes and all delicious.  I was fortunate to have been invited to East Hampton this weekend to have lunch at Ina Garten's beautiful home with some of my dear friends.  It was taped for an upcoming episode on the Food Network.  It was an incredible day and Ina was even better than what I had hoped she would be like - fun, sweet, charming, and so welcoming.
Lunch with friends!

Visiting Ina's home, for me, was like an Elvis fan going to "Graceland"

Lunch with a view of the garden 

This is where it all started for me

She loved signing a page that clearly had been used many times

This, however, is from the much anticipated new book to be released in October

She shared some of her favorites.  Scalloped Tomatoes I love!

It was a day I will never forget.   

Thank you Ina!

Run don't walk to pre-order her new book

Late Summer evenings spent on the porch

A recent project we just finished has one of the most inviting outdoor areas.  Raoul Fabrics and Walters Wicker Furniture

William Yeoward crystal is my favorite and are signature pieces in all of my projects

Welcome to It's Everything I Love...

I am an Interior Designer who also has a passion for food, fashion, entertaining and all that goes with it!  This is a fun creative outlet for me and I am excited to share some of my inspirations with you...

So I thought my very favorite season was the right place to start!  Midway through August my mind starts to turn to Autumn. That means cozy cashmere sweaters and fall fashion, delicious savory dinners with rich French Bordeaux.   Afternoons spent in Central Park walking through the boat park and sitting on benches pondering all good things is what I adore.  But followed of course with drinks at Bemelmans bar at the Carlyle Hotel just feels ever so perfect!

Oh so much I love... Let's get started
