I haven't done an elephant post in forever (my other obsession) so here you go: I bookmarked this New Yorker article when it first came out and I just re-discovered it in my bookmarks. I just love Babar and these illustrations by Jean de Brunhoff are so beautiful!

(SO SAD! I hate when the mom dies)

Babar and Celeste happily ever after!

One very lucky reader will receive a handpainted Francesca Joy Palm Beach wristlet! Elise, the designer, will paint the winner whatever design she wants (anchor, floral, island, parrott, etc)!

Here are 2 examples of the new island series:

Fishers Island:

I have this one!

Nautical Photo of the Week: A Nautical DAD

Reader Heather submitted this great photo of her father! Her father is on his Catalina 22, heading out for the Brown Jug regatta (his yacht club's annual Labor Day event). He was the commodore of the club this past year, so his commodore's flag is flying in the background. The captain and his crew (Heather and her mom) all wore matching polo shirts, stone pants/shorts, and custom-embroidered hats with the boat's name on them!

Dogeared necklaces and bracelets are so cute! Each one has a special meaning/message. Find the charm that is perfect for YOU!

I have this elephant necklace:

My other favorite is the Sailboat. I love what it says: "Smooth Sailing... make a wish and put on your necklace. we rarely go through life in a straight line. moving with the current will help you stay a float! wear your necklace as a reminder to stay open to changing direction"

Other charms to choose from (there are SO many options):

Cowboy Boot

My Apartment: my new table!

Just got this brand new table from Crate & Barrel on Saturday (it was on final sale so I got it for a really great price!). Unfortunately I still don't have chairs but I love the table! I'm just borrowing the blue chair from my mom. I think it goes perfectly! Don't my new placemats from The Preppy Princess look adorable on the table?

This could be my dream house. Seriously. CT Cupcake emailed me a photo of her parents' Cape Cod house. There's even an anchor in the yard!
