Life interfered.....some good, some bad, like all of us really. Let's catch up.....
On the personal front, I have been helping a dear friend diagnosed with cancer, doesn't it seem like cancer is everywhere?
Then my beloved Cooper's health declined, rapidly, in all directions, he now has a dermatologist, optometrist, neurologist, and an oncologist
Yeah, this guy. Fourteen more chemo treatments and all will be well.
On the business front......slammed! Supposed to be good, right? Well, it is a blessing, but YIKES! When landscapes collide with interiors, there is not an iota of time for mischief
Always great fun/hard work is my semi-annual jaunt to Atlanta for market and antiquing
My inner lighting freak, loved the design and craftsmanship in this baby. The high design elements in the lighting arena remain astounding, like art installments
The reflective glow from the hammered gold backing is mesmerizing.
Blessing beads, available in a multitude of colors, these make a great gift for newlyweds, new homeowners, grads, a friend in need.....For one of my interior clients, the manufacturer is creating a bead curtain to separate a room, ala 1960's
Mmmmm, everywhere was a relaxed European style of bed dressing in velvet, pure cotton, and linens. I found many sheets in linen, have you ever enjoyed such a sleep? This hard wearing organic fabric improves with repeated washings becoming smoother and more luxurious in texture
Then there is always that piece, actually more than that, way more until your eyes begin to bleed. Look at the size of this vase/statue/WHAT!?
Nothing beats the antiquing down south, here are just a few finds that came back to the shop
This Louisphile had heart tremors, "please do not be sold, PLEASE", I said to myself. A custom side table from the estate of one of the Gimbel descendants, and her Louis trunk below
The predominant theme in holiday decor? Christmas at Tiffany's; garlands of pearl, faux gems, rhinestones........I succumbed, so so beautiful
Amy Howard, of the Amy Howard Paint and Decorative Finish line, has a new book out. Targeted to the creatives among us that dream of developing a business. Trust me it is doable and she maps out guidelines for success.
How about your summer? All you hoped for with some fun sprinkled in?
And yes, off to work one day with my client. Pinch, pinch!
Wishing you good health, and endless inspiration,
