do you know lynn?

instead of listing all the additional 14 blogs i’ve got in store, it may be easier to do them one at a time, so it’s not so overwhelming. for you OR me!

maybe i’m the last to see it but i love this book by tim walker

i found this and so much more through my friend lynn of paris hotel boutique

i haven’t really had a chance to spend time on her blog but had the pleasure of meeting her in her home in san fran a couple years back. when i went today i was blown away by her stacks of stuff! her house is amazing too…i’ll get pics of that later. a bungalow in cali to do die for!

this is the kind of cool stuff she finds. early hotel engineering. who would have thought it could be so glam?

going to her site and blog was so uplifting! she specializes in old hotel ephemera, a fascinating and endless hobby and what makes for great collecting! lucky for us she sells this stuff too!

more on her to come!

    Hey Claudia,
    Actually, I do know Lynn! Which reminds me I need to email her as I haven’t seen her since I had to move my store from SF to Pacifica. She is adorable inside and out and so is her puppy. He and Alfie like to tussle! Glad you are spreading the love. She has hands down the best website.

    I can only dream of owning Tim Walker’s book someday! It looks gorgeous! I shred a link to your blog today- stop by and see me if you have time. I am working on the award you so nicely bestowed upon me. I am late as usual but plan to get it finished this week- I need to think on it some more- my grandbabies and company just left town and I have been busy busy! The canoe trip looked fun and don’t fret over the construction- it always seems lots worse than it is- it may even improve the area-and there may even be some cute construction workers too- ya never know!

    I came across your blog by accident as I am a new computer user. I am a passionate fan of French decor and love your site.

    I am looking for a site I found about 3 weeks ago with picture of various Paris appartments, lovely written comments, poems etc. Can you help me find it again. It may have been picture from a book? I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I want to know where the pictures came from – was it a specific book. I looked at the pictures for hours the night before I left on a vacation. I cann’t find it now. Please help me find it again. Thank you for any assistance you can give me.

    I will visit your site regularly to see what wonderful things you have to share. Thank you for sharing. Myrna
