unless you have some time. it’s easy to get lost in this design ‘test’ matrix. have you seen it?

it gives you something to do between bouts of summer madness. truly i’ve been a juvie delinquent lately but all friends, neighbors, guys and distractions are gone for a minute.
on another note, how about that catherine deneuve in 1962 st. tropez?
well anyway, tonite was back to research and i did get to blog a bit so i’ll settle for being fresh on monday. for now suite dreams!
hi everyone, it’s saturday night and i just wanted to say hello to all my wondeful blog buds. life’s been great here and the outside world is not too bad anymore. life’s gotten simpler, everything from recycling to electric, when i got hot water the other day, it was like i’d never had it before i was so grateful. and i never thought i’d care about grass, but have to admit i’m thrilled to see its buds after a long day! watching this pattern blossom is instant gratification. my own little versailles, and so easy! ;p
anyhoo, over next door you know who got this beauty as she preps for a hot tub
amazed me and hung this up
and got us both bird feeders.
we just got back from a midnight bike ride and barbecue. we’re having a ball being 16 again! buona notte!
gorgeous perfumes and accessories at France-Hersher Antiques in Dania, 945.921.0022
it’s one of those treasure troves. and next door is the ‘antiques gallery and picture frames’
great old deco pieces
and miscellaneous wonders. i can’t help it, i’m so drawn to this…
you know i love this girly stuff! but mi casa is anything but. in fact it’s pretty masculine!
anyway i rediscovered one of my old stomping goldmines, the town of Dania. it’s one of those great places that seems to have stopped in time. it’s completely filled with antique and consignment stores, with no other kind of stores for blocks. this is the largest antique malll there at 11 federal highway. (954-921-7604)
this set had black and white striped seats, kind of golden girls moderne
this was super low but really interesting. maybe it’s the giraffe
i can see where these would have come in handy back in the day, this place must have been one big party back then
and what a vanity/desk…it comes with the stool, both are thick lucite
love the pink inside of this bamboo vase
these swivel! i’m nuts! or maybe just a sucker for good presentation
the table is uber heavy and the chairs are surprisingly comfy
this i died for but she found it first yesterday cause i stopped off for coffee ;p
her first piece ever purchased (that meant something) was this chair from afganistan. the pillow from target was the perfect fit.
details details all from target
well that’s about it, but tomorrow is another day, and i can’t wait to explore every nook and cranny of south florida! if you want info on any of the pieces let me know!
bonjour friends! tonite is my first evening in my own home, i can blog uninterrupted all nite if i want! i hope to get over to see you and say hi. i’m glad you’re here!
well, even tho i’m not even thinking about opening another store, i can’t resist daydreaming about it when i see something special. then reality sets in and i say, enjoy your freedom!
still, it’s cute isn’t it?
well we’ve been having a love affair with our new town, pretending it’s the summer of ’72, (this statue is in the center of town, mom, do you love it)?
days have been filled finding resources for fabrics, visiting upholsterers and doing runs to ikea and target and home depot more than i’d like to admit…of course it’s all soooo much fun!
these canvases were some of the great art pieces that ikea had, i thought they were both powerful and whimsical
as for chez moi, my floors came out better than i ever dreamed. i don’t even want rugs and thought i’d have to cover them completely!
but something may be missing…
till i can figure out what i’ll keep on working and nesting
and working hard to be organic as challenged by carol…i did get solar lights for the walk, organic sheets and detergents. there’s a lot to think about but i like it!
and of course liz has been a decorating fool and got even more yellow pillows! more of her great taste tomorrow!
these are liz’s new shoes. and pillows. who is this liz?
we’ve been bff’s friends since ’93 when we met on 9th street where we both had stores. we actually came down to florida together the first time so long ago, and even rented some places together over the years. we’ve lived, traveled and worked together, and are basically just like sisters (even the fights)! somehow karma is bringing us together again, we’re both excited after 4 years to see why! she has amazing taste and is a stylist so there’s always plenty of shopping going on and something new for inspiration. (or to borrow :)
i figured i’ll keep posting her place since it’s easier to shoot and mine still looks exactly the same…till tomorrow that is! the waiting game is finally over, pros are coming to clean and wax the floors! i’m excited on one hand and so sad on the other.
i’ve come to know a little community here, my italian landlord, the old lady next door, the beach itself just outside. but i know it’s a good move for me, tho i’m going completely on instinct. here goes nothin…or a lot of something…here’s to the future!
i have absolutely no furniture for this house except for vanities! here are a couple i have for sale. hope that’s not too bourgeois to sell them here but i am being held hostage by my web guy! do you have a shopping cart that you use and love on your site?
the mirrored vanity above is about 36″ wide and the mirror is attached and comes off for shipping. i’m selling it for $1995. just wanted to put it up here before ebay.
i also have this little sweetie for $995 and measures about $16″ wide. both are 1930′s and are in great shape.
ok that’s all for now, more tout de suite!
