A taste of Orange - all dressed up and ready to celebrate

Monday I celebrated my 40th birthday....a little difficult but kind of exciting as well.  It is a new time in my life , a new decade and of course a great way to celebrate with this awesome bottle of Veuve Clicquot.

the presentation is beautiful - it is wrapped in an orange canvas with brown leather straps - worth keeping in the packaging alone.....but of course...how else could you celebrate?

Back to School ......Back to Orange

It's the season for Back to school....our little girl is getting all excited to go to school - first time - Junior Kindergarten - Exciting for her.....stressful for me. Mario seems to be handling it better then I am...we are putting her on a bus on Wed - she will go to school by herself and come back...I guess all parents go through it...but man....its not fun. Daddy's little girl is growing up....

So in honour of Back to school - I have sourced out numerous desks, chairs, and lamps all in of course my stores favorite colour - Orange

Classic Eames / Eiffel chair in Orange

custom bergere chair in orange twill and coffee sacks - great as dining or even a desk chair

Panton Chair in orange - Sleek and Sexy

There is tons out there - too many items to post - so this was a selected few of my favorites...Even as I write this I have butterflies in my stomach thinking of Mari-Sol in the playground, walking the halls, sitting on the bus.  I dont know how all the parents did this before us.  I am sure there will be some tears. Actually I Guarantee there will be some tears...

To all of you with children starting school - Good Luck - I wish you all the best and to all those kids out there starting for the first time - applause to you - they are our future....

So pack up all those books in a nice school bag....May I suggest the Hermes Messenger bag....LOL........
