hi everyone! is anyone going to see sex and the city this weekend? well i’m finally back chez moi, working, doing yoga, watching movies and fixing it like i like it. it’s been 2 whole days of heaven!
so…then i was tagged by shawn at euroantiques which means homework! my mission is to tag 6 favorite blogs and tell 6 things about myself. don’t i talk enough about myself?
below are 3 blogs fantastique.
this is actually a blog and online magazine. love her!
ok 3 more tomorrow… now to bed!
isn’t packaging everything? do we even care what they’re selling? i’m way into this kind of minimalism!
today i’m writing for no reason at all! just to post about…well nothing in particular except what’s crossing my path this very moment!
thanks to a comment from Deco Detective, i found these next couple of sites. interesting on a couple levels.
on this first one I really like their biz philosophy of having lots of small designers on one site
below is a way to be green and funky. stanker turns oil into gold by making tables from barrels at: stanker.design.free.fr
basically i’m just saying hi today, just wanted to get out of my own head and be around beautiful things and surf your sites!
and i want to shout a giant THANK YOU to Sherri at theantiquecafe and antique paperie
for her oh so generous nature and taking the time to send this stunning assortment of beautiful things she makes. she also sent me ‘the secret’ which i haven’t read. can’t wait!
ok one thing i can share is redesigning my boutique, it’s time consuming but i want to be able to handle everything myself! this is it, i’m in the early stages, i’d love your opinion, is it too generic?
ok well back to work!
back for a sec to report, i read a magazine! something i haven’t been able to do for ages. ahhh it felt good…here are some highlights, it’s all from this month’s elle decor (us). i didn’t get to the links and credits yet but i will!
gorgeous turquoise chandelier
this was lee joffa
faux shagreen tiles
and finally sunset out the window, just what i was waiting for!…ok well have a great holiday weekend and enjoy some RnR!!

i’m supposed to be in france right now but at the last minute had a change of plans. if i’d remembered that marie’s party was in full swing i may have gone just for it. quel dommage! well, if you’re there, let us know how it was and for those of us stateside, i did a little research so we’d at least have some eye candy and cake. anyway it was a great excuse to get lost in her world for awhile.

it’s inspiring to share a marie antoinette passion with so many. surfing for pics led me to flicker where i found lilidebretagne’s photos
and she led me to this sensational artist below was featured on the same site. her name is Mme de Côme but i haven’t been able to find out any info on her. do you know her?
ohh la la i love these!
ok when you start looking up stuff for marie it just gets to be an all out obsession:
here are a couple links with great pics and then that’s it, i have to work!
thanks for all your support yesterday, it meant so much to me and i can’t even read it without crying. i can’t wait to visit you soon too. another day in ny then back down south. where it’s calm. (i just got back from a vegas weekend and NEED to zero out)!
leaving town forces you to do things that have been on the back burner…today was the Kips Bay Show House. needless to say i had a good time taking illegal pics. if you’re in the city, do GO dahling!
on another note, i’m excited to have been asked to donate to the ARTrageous Gala Dinner and Auction, so i’m giving away a trip to paris in the fall with our group. it’s for foster kids, a cause close to my heart. and it’s a good reason to go to Cipriani :)
Cipriani, 55 Wall Street
happy mother’s day to all my beautiful friends and family, and especially to you, mom! this post is for you, cause today’s what it took to get back to blogging. plus it’s a great way for us to work together to decorate my old room into your dream guest room.
to my friends i may seem a little scattered cause it’s been awhile so i’ll just blab/blog and let it all hang out in no particular order!
wow! i have really missed being involved in our blog community. it’s a place i took for granted but treasured as my own private world with you all. guess i grew up a little this month. i know now that this is a public place, and not everyone has my best interest at heart, some will really try to hurt you.
realizing that was a jolt and for a brief, un-shiny moment my joie de vie waned, so i stepped back to contemplate life and redefine what’s important.
happily lemonade was made with those lemons and i came to the conclusion that i have no regrets about my life or past. my ‘dark side’ is really not that dark or interesting. but it’s mine. and i actually like it.
so thank you for waiting for me, there’s so much new stuff i want to tell you and share.
ok mom, we’re starting with the bed, if any of you blogging gurus have seen something special please let me know, i’ve been out of the loop and feel like i have a lifetime of catching up to do!
i’m glad to be back and can’t wait to explore with you!
(this site is from melissa, so thank you)!
