good morning dear friends
another brand new day with all the hope for the future.
there was another horrifying incident in france that i can’t seem to shake and just wanted to be here and share some beauty
also wanted to say thanks to everyone’s comments the other day about the chairs.
your feedback was really helpful and i’m taking all of it to heart.
so what’s today about?
well i just fished into my pool of pics to see what popped up.
well, the one on my desktop was from the night i searched antique boutiques.
seems shopping never goes out of style…
i’ve been saving my pics using the google search now so it’s easy to keep track, maybe even easier than pinterest albeit not nearly as much fun
in any case i’m going to stick with the shopping theme considering i have to catch a plane in less than an hour.
i’m heading back to NC to meet with a furniture manufacturer, a wonderful man i met almost 10 years ago. i’ve been waiting till just the right time to collaborate and the time has come!
and i didn’t forget the giveaway…the random number for the book is. #3…liz from san diego!
please let me know you addy and i’ll send it out on friday.
well, that’s about it for me today,
hope you enjoyed a trip back in time to do a little shopping.
better run, don’t want to miss my ride!
ps here’s a link if you’d like a little more: have a great day!
good morning! it’s noon (-ish) on monday and the week is fresh and new.
this week i’m shifting into high gear to see what i can accomplish.
still working on finalizing the styles for the chair line. there are just so many subtle differences and i need to narrow.
i have a chair maker who can create any frame we can imagine.
i’ve been going through the most universal styles, but there are a few that i haven’t seen around much and i’d love to revive.
trouble is i’m working with guys who may not think feminine furniture is as delicious a i (maybe we? do).
before i commit and get everyone on board, i just wanted to hear your thoughts. what kind of chairs, benches, sofas or chaises are you looking for?
these are a few i pulled this morning, just wanted to post them since i want them all personally!
so let me ask you, how do you feel about cane?
are you still into vanity chairs?
slipper chairs? tufts?
carvings? we all know that women do most of the purchasing so i appreciate you weighing in so i can share your opinion with the gang.
by the by, i was sent a copy of a new book titled, ‘amour provence’ by constance leisure.
i promised to host a giveaway, so if you’d like to throw your chapeau in the ring, just say so in the comments and we’ll draw on wednesday.
ok, signing off for a bit, have a wonderful week!
hi guys how’s it going?
it’s a july monday evening, for some kids it’s a great summer full of carefree days and not thinking of much more than fun in the sun.
i’m taking some of that energy tonight and doing the things i enjoy, one of which as you may know, is being here.
not just cause i love you, but also cause it’s a journal and a record of this life o’ mine.
after all, it’s a web log, right?
lately it’s been fun to see posts on facebook from the past.
memories, events and feelings would have been long forgotten.
it let’s you in on where you were at any moment.
this blog is 10 years old now, hard to believe.
funny it’s taken me this long to realize how powerful it can be to track yourself
and what about that ol’ here and now?
well, today i wanted to share some images that have been piling up
i’m working on the new website and coming across what must be thousands of images.
as i was about to empty the recycle bin and realized that they are too pretty not to share. and that trash can really be treasure.
so in no particular order, and with no rhyme or reason, here are a few.
as i go through them i just see them as soul food.
well i hope you enjoyed this trip to nowhere.
as for me, i’m about to start the night shift and get to making sense of all this fodder.
have a beautiful night and sweet, full moon dreams!
