No doubt you have experienced the excitement of an auction at Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Doyle, or other fine establishments. (BTW, do peek below for a great Doyle tidbit.) At auction houses “Fair Warning” is a signal advising that if you really want that strand of Mikimoto pearls for Bitsy’s wedding in June, you’d better bid. Like now. Well, that’s sort of what The Princess is saying. Consider this today’s Fair Warning: we’re absolutely gaga over the new Preppy Placemat™ and probably in danger of displaying an inappropriate emotional response in our excitement!

We are way over the top in elation the place mats finally arrived; we’re also jazzed at how cool they turned out! Yes! Today’s pictures are from the Make Mine Madras and Tradition stripe collections.

These truly make a fab style statement while also displaying a split personality that everyone will appreciate – they are reversible! So they dress up both your dining room and kitchen tables, stretching your decorating dollar a bit more. (And really, aren’t we all positioned to consider little economies here and there when we stumble over them?) Naturellement, the placemats are 100% cotton and the madras is a Princess exclusive: the fabric was made especially for us in India, it is a pattern you won’t see anywhere else. There are others in the collection as well as matching and coordinating napkins. We will showcase some of the them in the next few days, but simply had to get these two up right away to share with you as we consider them to be very Princess and most Prepalicious! BTW, we were so troubled by confusion over the correct spelling of the place mat word we actually consulted Webster’s online dictionary only to learn both spellings are acceptable.
Ooops, almost forgot our Doyle update! They have the most divine jewelry auction scheduled for the 15th with pieces by Harry Winston, Tiffany’s, and Cartier. If you aren’t in the city on the 15th, not to worry: you can always bid by internet or phone. Time to fly, a League meeting awaits!
