seriously about to die about what i saw today uptown
and this shot certainly does not do it justice…in the least (obliviously)! but i went with tony to repair one of the chests for j.a. and get a shot of them since i’m in town. and, ok, and i wanted to see the place too, i admit! but i was not prepared for its magnificence! i wish i could show you the exquisite picture i took but it just seems unethical since it’s not even really finished yet, but oh, i know you would flip! the place is a knockout in every detail, the rugs, the lighting, every surface, color, the view! it’s an absolute dream. i’m going to ask to photograph it once all my products have arrived and are in perfect order! (one more mirror to go, please god, no chips)!
there were so many exquisite things there including this throw folded over the back of sofa and it looked amazing! ( i went to the website afterward :)
it was an absolute visual feast in every way with hints of turquoise, periwinkle, silvers, black, white, blues, grays…yummmmmmmmm!
well, we’re gonna hit the town now, so, happy thanksgiving if i don’t get to tell you tomorrow! i love and am thankful for you, hope you know!
ps: found this pic on jerryandmartha.com
leaving for the airport in a few minutes and kind of glad to get away. all morning long i could hear buzz saws next door at my old place. they chopped down the all the trees and bushes. ripped out everything I had the privilege and joy to watch grow and bloom over the past few months. it was such a dream to live there and now with the devastation it’s hard to look at. why do they do that? not to be a bummer but i just had to tell someone and i knew you’d understand! at least there’s the kitten
are you sick of me talking about him yet!?
just had to post a shot of my new lease on life. i’m still a block from the beach but kind of forgot about it these past few weeks. today i took your advice to relax so with new cup in hand (gotta love marshall’s), hit the sand for a good 1/2 hour. now charged up and ready to hit the streets. more later!
hi everyone! hope you’re kicking back to enjoy the weekend. i know i am. leaving for ny in a couple of days and trying to help lz get her house ready for the holidays before i go. i’m a little anti holiday decorations since i’ve always been around an abundance of them my whole life between mom, gram, aunts, et al, so shopping this afternoon I was surprised to find all these beautiful temptations! one of my friends asked what i would do for the holidays so tomorrow i’ll post some things i’d buy if i were decorating my own place. liz went for a sort of organic theme which i’m really liking. i’m a fool for these vintagy houses, they remind me of grandfathers’s train he’d set up each year. there were trees and houses, and i guess that little town just did it for me! come to think about it, i do love those old decorations that have gone up each year since i can remember.
ok well, i’m hoping to come and visit but the first glass of wine has been poured! xoc
that’s the name of carla bruni’s new album, aka ‘as if nothing happened’ (sounds better in french)
i heard her on the today show this a.m. and her song was positively ethereal! i happened to find this pic on la la lovely and wanted to share her blog too since it is as lovely as promised. oh, and i found her thru vicki archer who did a post on fave french musique. no wonder we get lost on the web, when you look at your breadcrumbs it’s wild how far you can go in 30 seconds! ok off to work, but with a new soundtrack today!
i can’t get to LA this weekend for this estate sale (thanks, jane)! but it sure is making me want to get back there.
sometimes that’s all she wrote, right? well that’s it for me, i’m done for the day. all disasters were miraculously averted due to my dear friend and true angel who as usual, came to the rescue. without him my life would have been ruined today so, thanks god, and Tony! (i’ll sleep well tonite :)
ps, ladies, if you live in nyc and need something done whether it’s around the apt, a glitch in the computer matrix or just to fix your bike, Tony is your man! (sounds like my dad, a total renaissance man)
ok c’est tout. bon nuit, mes amis, sweet dreams!
