No plans for a big vacation this year? Why not browse the vintage travel-related books just in at Paris Hotel Boutique? Set up a lounge chair in the backyard, grab an ice-cold drink, and use that fabulous imagination. Boutique owner Lynn has found several charming titles from Ludwig Bemelmans. I have to confess I'm partial to the cover of Italian Holiday, 1961. Don't forget to also check your local public library for vintage editions. I've been surprised by some of the great finds at Atlanta branches.
These 1960s sari-inspired Georges Briard Suburban glasses, designed with blues, greens, and 22k gold leaf accents, would be just the thing for a summer drink. Available at Vicky's Yard Sale.
Or how about Briard's "Cobra Rust" snakeskin design? Also vintage and available here.
