good morning dear friends. it’s been such a long time since my last post and today was the day to get out of my blogging funk! i just needed time to decompress, disconnect and as timothy leary said, drop out! but with the new season comes a new attitude. not one of obligation or necessity, but one of joie de vivre, hope and dreams! it’s been a tough road the last few weeks but as of now i’m back to work on my masterpiece, life itself. not trying to finish anything but just adding brush strokes to the canvas. as always i’m looking to nature for inspiration so stopped at the very first image on pinterest that caught my eye today. instead of posting a ton of shots,  just looking and studying the one here. the composition and the colors…slowing down and truly observing. i hope your spring has started out sunny and can’t wait to share the season together. i’ve been missing you!

good morning! how are you doing? the days have been flying by around here. in fact i can’t believe the last time i was able to sit and write was over a week ago. what have you been up to? chez moi has been filled with work. it’s good work, tightening up the website, cleaning up finances, creating standards and practices…basic entrepreneurship! it’s all of it in an effort to be more efficient and get that free time i desperately crave  for this year. one of the areas we’re working on is the blog sidebar with ads and sponsors. with that, i wanted to welcome the latest member of the family. she’s a wonderful woman i met in paris (her husband surprised her with one of my shopping trips for a milestone birthday)! we stayed in touch and i’ve watched her store in nj blossom into a an amazing collection of curated items from local artisans as well as carrying some of the french items we saw at the maison et object. please help me welcome the one and only cindy potters of Shed, the Ecectic Home!
