You guys haven’t been over in ages
so come on in…and of course, I have
made a few changes!
You will know with certainty pod people
have snatched your pointe-shoed bloggy friend
should her rooms remain stagnant
for more than a season.
The studio with swing and piano.
Shabby Chic wool rug, table found curbside,
and the canvases always be a changin.
I love my new French apron and dishtowel from
Tina at The Enchanted Home…underneath
my daily breakfast (yogurt, berries, homemade
granola) it classes up the joint.
The formal dining room is still a headache.
Still soooo not sexy.
It doesn’t feel like me, but it’s not a
priority to re-style it right now so
I’m using the table as
an inspiration board with ideas
for collages to create.
Handmade lace, sheets, and clothing thrifted in Paris
mingle with antique French documents going
back to the 1500s.
You can see a little of the original LULU DK art
I bought at One King’s Lane…yes yes yes, prints
are great, but have you lived with original art?
Say from my very own lil shop?
I’m tellin ya. You will be hooked.
Everybody who visits falls in love with these guys.
They are Sonny Angels from
one of the animal collections.
I spotted them in a highend Paris shop
window, and since they were for display only,
I couldn’t wait to gettogoogling
and collect my own.
Will this cutout of me and my sis in the
depression-era goblet inspire a legion of
copycats to dress their china hutch
*shakes Magic 8 Ball*
“MY SOURCES SAY NO”
Teeny peek at a new etagere, but I still need
to style the shelves so this is all you get for
now cuz it’s not photoworthy yet.
Step into the kitchen where I’m
only sharing a fuzzy peek at new counter stools
my husband brought home because he felt
the poor condition of those with which
we were making do
(since so many teens use this
kitchen, and there are a few things I
enjoy more than babysitting fabulous
vulnerable Belgian linen seats and wielding
my wooden spoon).
This is Ina Garten’s apple crisp
I made in
individual ramekins for
super fun girlfriends this weekend,
but we’re sharing.
This was us on my deck last time we frolicked.
What’s beside my bed right now…
this fabulous teaser of a mini mag from heaven.

Still with me?
Want me to play us out with one
of my freshly written ballads
for the insane?
That will require a little more
prodding and a good Pinot,
How the heck are you, and would you
like your crisp a la mode?
Peace to you right where you are.
