Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Hope you all get a chance to be with your family and friends for the holiday!  In my opinion, Thanksgiving is not complete without a really good cup of coffee after dinner and homemade pie made by my mom - her pies always taste the best!

Thanks to all of you for stopping by Fric and Frac and inspiring us with your comments and your enthusiasm!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Vintage Suitcases.

As a Prop Shopper/Stylist I get asked to shop for a lot of crazy things and some are fun and some pretty mundane.  I love it when I get to spend the day looking for something unique and rummage thru all of the antique stores and thrift shops for something special.  It satisfies my own desire to see what's out there at the same time!  It is also dangerous because I always end up finding something I want for myself!   Last week I got to spend the day looking for vintage suitcases and I just love the look of an old suitcase compared to those modern cases on wheels that we see today.  They tell their own story.

Can't leave out the amazing luggage in The Darjeeling Limited.

In truth, I still travel with a very large duffel bag like these - easy to throw in the car and go!

I love this wall of framed envelopes - such a great idea.

I also love a gorgeous lined envelope.

I lined my Rifle Design thank you cards with this super cute red faux bois paper.

And you know I love kelly green polka dots - so fun!

Add some gorgeous stamps.

I love a white pen on dark envelopes!

Time to start thinking about holiday cards - but it always takes me forever to figure out what I want to do each year.  What about you all?

We never tire of yellow!  A pop of yellow looks good with just about any color.  It always makes me happy!

I love the vibrant yellow on these pots and pans!

Lemon curd is a favorite and the perfect shade of yellow!

I pretty much love anything that is lacquered in bright colors and yellow, red, and green together is absolute harmony in my mind.

Rach has been wanting to wallpaper her dining room with this gorgeous yellow paper - a lot of work - but I think it will be beautiful!

I have a chandelier just like this in white - but maybe I should paint it yellow!

I want to pin this flower to a tomato red cashmere cardigan!

The perfect coat gets even better in yellow!

My favorite Wm J. Mills Flight bag in yellow!

Gorgeous Linda & Harriett letterpressed thank you card!

Beautiful Bags and Dresses.

I love these gorgeous bags from IOMOI.

My favorite thing about them is that they are monogrammable!  I love a good monogram.

Super cute striped dresses caught my eye too!

Classic stripes always make me happy!

Running horses too - love it - would be so cute with a pair of Frye Boots for the fall!
