E is for Echo

I'm not sure what was in my mind when I signed up to blog six days a week. Generally by Friday night the only thing I am ready to do is watch a few episodes of "Say Yes to the Dress, and fall asleep." I rarely post, and still more rarely visit my blog buddies. But I signed up and am truly enjoying being part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, but my friends, I am one tired Buttercup tonight. I do have a post and photographs I adore, but visits will have to wait for tomorrow and I'll resume posting a featured blogger tomorrow, too.


We're going a few blocks off Broadway for "E."A few weeks ago I had a great visit to the Architectural Digest Home Design Show. I was especially taken with the table settings and there were two designers that really caught my attention. I thought this one by Echo Design completely captured spring. I remember Echo from my high school days and the beautiful scarves they made, but looking at their website I found they'd widened their scope and had wonderful table items.

  I love botanical prints and these are as lovely as any I've seen. 

I'm saving the other designer I liked for another letter in the alphabet. They have a shop in Lower Manhattan and I'm hoping to make a visit there later this month. 

This is my Elegant Friday and I'll be back for a Fabulous Saturday. I hope your Saturday is Fabulous, too!

I don't usually get on Blogger on the weekend, but here I am (and I am not even in the A to Z).

I love beautiful table settings and these were nice to see.

I'm not familiar with the designer but do love the prints. Hope your Saturday is a super one! Looking forward to whatever fabulous things you come up with next.

I too am wondering what in the world I was thinking doing this challenge. We'll make it through!

I did not know about Echo prints and table ware but I like them. The only Echo I know about is our little car. It is the only car we have since the accident killed my Prius which I loved. The Echo is a no frills car but it gets us where we need to go economically.... not as economically as my Prius though. We will probably get another car if we ever get a settlement from the accident... 'til then our Echo is our chariot.

The emergency room turned out to be our best E word yesterday.

Have a nice weekend. If you would like to hear some uplifting talks our general conference is on this weekend. You can find conference episodes at lds.com
Hugs, Lura
