Happy Friday everyone!! We survived the first week back after the holidays and the "polar vortex"!
The picture above was taken by my daughter, Caroline, last Saturday as she was flying into Reagan National airport in DC after spending the holidays here in Connecticut.
Today's post is a bit of a mish-mash since I haven't done an "On My Radar Screen" post for a while...
First up, I was extraordinarily lucky in December and won TWO amazing giveaways!! One was the incredible blue and white vintage foo dog from The Pink Pagoda
and Duchess Fare
. It is the centerpiece in my newly styled bookshelves in my family room. Thank you, Jennifer and Sarah!!! Also, in celebration the fourth anniversary of her blog, Sarah is offering a generous 40% off at her etsy store
but the sale ends today, so don't wait!
The other giveaway I won was the luscious smelling Antica Farmacista
Prosecco diffuser from Splendid Market
. I am thrilled with this luxurious home fragrance that takes me back to Italy every time I smell it. Thank you, Emily!!
What a treat to receive these lovely giveaways during the holidays!
This week has been fantastic reading in the blogosphere with all my fellow bloggers sharing their holiday travels, reviews of 2013 and inspirational posts for 2014, so I have quite a few links to share with you today...
If you think you have been cold this week, imagine being in Milwaukee...Elizabeth from Pine Cones and Acorns
actually ventured out into the sub-zero temperatures and took some stunning photos of Lake Michigan
I didn't think a cold weather getaway could look good to me right now until I read Jeanne at I Dream Of
's post about her New Year's vacation
. Don't you just love the bubbly in the snow?
I loved the images in Design Chic
's post on home swapping
. Do you think anyone with a villa on Santorini might want to spend the summer in Connecticut? A girl can dream...
Today, I am in the city for the Virtuoso Northeast Regional Conference. I am excited to be participating in this event and, no doubt, will be bringing back all sorts of incredible travel resources to share with you!
Have a fabulous weekend, my dears...wherever you may be wandering!!
