Giving back is extremely important to my mom & I.  It is the main reason we participate in the number of show houses we do each year.  It is cleansing for your soul to donate time, money or whatever you can to something you truly believe in.  

The Ronald McDonald House is one of the most amazing charities I have come across.  Each year they help thousands of families dealing with the financial strain of childhood illness.  They provide so much help to families in need including, but not limited to  housing and financial help for entire families while their child is undergoing medical care.  This fall we are taking part in a special event where designers create little vignettes in which every item will be auctioned off to benefit the charity.  We've been lucky and very appreciative to all vendors willing to donate.  Above is our inspiration board thus far.  We wanted to create a bright and cheery room and cannot wait to be a part of helping to raise money for such a beautiful organization.

We have the luxury of spending some time, every summer in the Southampton.  It is my absolute favorite time of year.   Hours upon hours with family & friends, laying by the pool, shopping at favorites like Roberta Roller Rabbit & Calypso, reading at the beach & going out to amazing dinners.  Although, recently my focus changed from the plethora of stores on Jobs to the beautiful, often times surreal architecture and landscaping surrounding me.  

I literally had to stop and stare at the above.  Dee & I have always been obsessed with gorgeous, classic, garden gates, but recently I slowly began stalking them because Alex & I are looking for one of our own.  These are the perfect inspiration.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
