Let's Make One Thing Perfectly Clear ....

Now that we have that misunderstanding corrected. Let me explain a few things ...

Here, at Enchanted Revelries, we often spend the days (and nights) lounging in the briefest of costumes. This is not to be confused with any kind of indelicacy or inappropriate behavior.

First of all, we all find it much easier to just get right to it when we have the sudden urge to improve ourselves with exercise ...
In addition, we have found that clothing in the trees is so much more intriguing and mysterious than clothing actually worn on the body ...

I'm so glad that we have that little detail attended to. Speaking of details! How about this detail work from a Christian Lacroix jacket?! All that exquisite beading and embroidery work - wow.
And, while on the subject of wow - how about these fantastic Forensetti table tops! I'll take the yellow one and the blue one please!

During the summer, an old friend of mine got married. As I was on blogging hiatus, I saved these to share with you. Aren't they super fun?! These kids are a hoot - and their wedding invitations were so "them!"

Have I shown you how the reno on the upstairs master bedroom bath is coming along? ... seriously, I would give a little toe or something for this gorgeous room!

If I were forced to be a bird in a gild cage, I believe this is the cage in which I would prefer to be imprisoned ...

Hopefully, hanging somewhere in the charm of this olde world room!

Oh, yes! I WAS that boy!

At Little Augury I found this terrific inlaid traveling chest filled with gold encrusted bottles and jars and compacts for the combining of scents. Isn't it a marvel?!

I love a designer who is not afraid of color!
Just as I am impressed by a man who is not afraid of using tricks from the world of beauty to enhance his appearance ...

If there was any fairness and justice in life at all, I would be sleeping (and eating and reading and ...) in this room every day and night of my life!

While on the subject of gorgeous rooms, this is a teaser photo of the magnificent 1916 Miami estate, Vizcaya, which I'm working on a posting about. It's an absolute knock-out!

Thanks for spending a few minutes with me today. Now, just like these fun and free-wheeling kids, it's time I got lost in Bohemia and made a little art. Why don't you go make something beautiful, too?

Tristan, so happy to see that you are back. I was worried about you. I would love to have that tree full of dress/lanterns right outside my silvery bathroom window. What a view while one soaks in luxury. Thanks for coming back full tilt with all this gorgeousness. Pam

Such a funny post, that's what I love about checking out your blog.
Adore the guy with the spit curls and the rooms , to die for.
Super glad your back. To quote Pam@Frippery.....
"Thanks for coming back full tilt with all this gorgeousness. "

Your blog posts are such a potpourri of wonderful! Tristan, you really should be ashamed of yourself for depriving us for these past months, as they really are good for the soul.

As always, your posts have so many wonderful things in them to comment on!

But I have to ask - inquiring minds want to know - how does the Bohemian lady keep her dress on? tape?

Can't wait to read about Vizcaya!

I'm working some more on the Million Dollar Theatre. Stay tuned.

Unknown said...

Your posts always make me smile, and I love that Mr. Roger's smiling photo! Where oh where do you find all of these amazing images? I am so glad you are back to blogging, I missed you so much...and the smiles too.

Wishing you a day of inspiration.

Oh Tristan My Friend...
I have missed you. I am SO thrilled to see you out and about again. I love, love this post.

That red room, I would be living, eating and sleeping in there as well. Love, love red. My fav.

Your friends wedding invitations are so stinkin cute. Now that is original, and I bet they had a large attendance just to see what their wedding would be like, I mean if those invitations didn't peak your interest I don't know what would.

Loved the dresses in the tree. That is such a beautiful element of surprise.

I so enjoyed this post Tristan. I have missed your visits. Merry Christmas sweet friend.

Many hugs, Sherry

Kathryn Costa said...

What a most delightful blog post. I will be sharing a link to you on FB. Your friends look like a scream (a scream of course in that wild fun sense). I'm dying to see photos from their event. Your photos and captions had me on the edge of my seat. Thank you for a wonderful time.

{soul hugs}
