Wanna give your senses a rare treat?
Simply mosey on over to the colorful portfolio
of designer and self-proclaimed mermaid
You won’t be sorry.
Once you get a satifying dose of her talent
as a designer
(you may recall Bill Clinton hired her a few years back),
you can take a peek
at The Bald Mermaid: A Memoir which
explores among other issues,
baldness (an auto-immune disease),
and bad boyfriends.
The Bald Mermaid: A Memoir
(Pointed Leaf Press, 2013)
(HEY VISUAL FRIENDS:
There are accompanying illustrations too.)
I’m not gonna spoil the book,
but there’s a part about one of the
bad boyfriends (a contractor)
which may cause you to
snap your fingers
in a ‘z’ pattern.
The walls of one of her guest rooms are graced
by words from her favorite authors in
lieu of dusty piles of books.
Are you lovin this whimsical Harlem apartment
designed by Ms. Bridges?
Food for thought…
Know what impresses me about this place?
How perfectly APPETIZING every room is.
I can imagine entertaining in every room;
eating delicious yum in every corner.
That’s a very Marie Antoinette kind of lovely
if you ask me, ya know?
