hooray! today is the day…

Let’s celebrate!  Today is my day, but it is also my company’s day and the inspiration for Fun and Fabulous Finds.  So, let’s be festive!  Let’s have some fun!  Let’s feel the love for the 4/25!

In honor of the day, here is one way I would spend the next 24 hours if all was in alignment in the universe:

And this is what I would drink-the Caipirinha!  Now listen, you haven’t lived until you have had a Caipirinha made in Brazil.  I have never tasted one in the states that compares to a Brazilian Caipirinha.  Never.  So, because it is my birthday maybe we should have a celebratory drink there together?

Of course, I have to mix in some decor and design because that is the heart of Fun and Fabulous Finds.  So, I would bring these timeless treasures back from Rio and put them in my house:

These flat weave rugs and blankets are so finely woven and divinely easy to use (and they are easy to pack!).  You can also find the most wonderful hand painted tablecloths and linens. And the art…well that is just fabulous as well.
