hi everybody! i have to apologize for popping in and out these days…i’ve been crazy busy and to top it off am assisting liz on a shoot to dress 50 people. we’ve been starting at the crack of dawn and going till the wee hours. i didn’t quite know what i was getting into and have one more day of servitude tomorrow. i wish i could show some of the things we got but it’s hush hush. let’s just say it’s some of the prettiest clothes and accessories. there’s a sort of french rivera vibe but i can’t give too much away cause she’s doing her thing ;p but i’ll keep you posted when it’s out. in the meantime she’s pretending to boss me around (of course i let her cause when i need her she’s johnny on the spot). and when we’re not drinking cafe au lait, and scheping to and from the car, we’re imitating each other’s boyfriend and trying to out-stripe each other. she did find me this little jacket and we’re having a ball as usual. still, i’m exhausted so again, it’s short and sweet… and now to veg out for awhile with the housewives, hooray! stay toasty!
a little flapper love for no reason at all~
hey guys, hope you’re home and chillin’ tonight! i actually have to have a report ready by tomorrow (i feel like i’m in high school), so i have to make this short and sweet. i have to thank fifi flowers for sending me this painting she made from one of my photos of paris last spring. fifi, you always put a little more color in the world!
(you can see the original post above)
ok well sorry to cut it short but a call is coming in…i better go! have a great nuit!
hey guys! i’m on a conference call and should be listening more carefully…while watching golddiggers of 1933!
i better go…enjoy!
hi guys! i had to cut out for a couple days after starting to fizzle out from techno overload. but i’ve been furiously working on some pretty major stuff i’ll tell you about soon. for now, just wanted to say hey and share a few of the many bloggers who pass through each day leaving bits of beauty in their wake. there’s just nothing that compares to the inspiration other bloggers post each day. i live for this infinite spring of real life lives and wish i could visit each and every one. actually i’m promising myself to do that a little more of that each day. after all, what fun would all this ‘work’ be if there wasn’t be some blogging reward at the end?
hope you enjoy these old and new friends!
this woman is a force of nature
honestly, i don’t know how these bloggers do it all!
the random beauty!
and last but not least, i just can’t say a big enough thank you to inStyle for featuring my little handles on a page in their march edition. it looks great, girls, you’re the best!
ok sweet friends, good night and sweet & deep dreams!
wow, have you been maxing out on all the technology you have to keep up with lately? between twitter, facebook, blogging, the site, projects and the daily grind it’s getting to be pretty relentless!
this sketch is just one of a hundred i’ve been going through today and thought i’d share, just cause it’s done by hand and not a computer, camera or digital creation! now i’m going to tune in and drop out for awhile. hope you’re having a great night and i promise to come visit soon! xoc
hi everybody! have fun today and enjoy a little vintage valentine’s from the past. i love seeing how we’ve changed and how much we’re still the same.
have a fabulous night, whether you’re with your honey or alone like me…actually we’re never alone when we have each other, are we? xoc
wow, almost midnight…again! where do the days go? today actually got chronicled, i just noticed i’ve been saving things to the desktop all day. and boy was it a pretty day! and another great day of collaboration with my blog buds. these candelabra (s)? and precious pink chest are from karina gentinetta’s new orleans collection. we teamed up and put these lovelies in the paris apartment’s boutique. i swear, it’s almost like shopping! i highly recommend selling your friend’s beautiful things if you have a retail store or website!
so we’re packing my guy to go on a two week jaunt so i’ll have plenty of time to chit chat but for tonight, it’s just a quick hello and posting the pics to get them off the desktop and into the ether…please excuse that none of them are labeled but i promise to retrace my steps and put all the links on tomorrow~
how do you feel about the bathroom renovation revolution in paris?
ok well that’s it for my day! good night ;p
hey guys, hope you’re warm and toasty this fine evening! i’m about to wind down but wanted to post on someone who, apparently, i could go on and on about! i say this cause what started as a quick jot has turned into an extraordinary look into one of my friend’s lives.
you may know one of the things i’m always fluffing is my web boutique. as previously discussed innumerably, one of my great thrills is collaborating with other bloggers to promote each other’s businesses and passions.
well, this is joy, a true earth mama who is my friend and blog bud. in our years online, i’ve seen her son get married, daughter have a baby, and recently we started working together by putting some of her finds into the boutique. we’ve never met but joy has one of those personalities that just beams through the ether.
while i was digging around for the some pics to describe her, i came across photos of her home and was blown away. these are all her shots in her house.
if you don’t know her, please go say hi. she’s a great resource and loves to shop. she’s out all the time and will keep an eye out for stuff for you and your boutique too.
i missed these…darn!
her blog has lots of her little treasures. we put some of the gems in my boutique:
et voilà, my shopping urge was satisfied and joy’s collection was born! a woman after my own heart too, cause i love it all to death! i actually want to keep this sconce for myself…thanks for sticking with me joy, i knew we’d get together some day :)
i want to keep this shade…and this cover
alors, it’s after midnight so i’m off to watch a little tube and shut this day down! night all!
ps: stay warm mom and dad!
hey guys, i’m sorry to always be rushing but once again it’s a night with about one minute left to blog and i’m determined to have a bit of life off the computer! this post is a compilation of some of the glorious blogs of both new and old friends who came thru my world today. instead of saving them to the desktop i kept a running post to publish at midnight so time’s up!
omg i forget where these came from…well it’s past midnight and i’m out like a pumpkin! sweet dreams!

hi guys! hope you’re having an all american superbowl sunday, where ever you are or whatever you’re doing! yay saints! this is going to be a quickie but i just wanted to post a couple of blogs of bloggers who’ve stopped by or i came across randomly today and wanted to share their pretty pics while they’re still fresh! so in no particular order or rationale:
below is bella notte via
