that was then, this is now
hey gang, how’s life? is time flying by for you like it is for me? i guess i’m one of the people who thinks that it’s not really passing, that there’s always time for this or that, but unless you seize it, take it, or make it, you lose track of it.
it’s been years since i visited our beloved blog bud, lynn with my 1 megapixel camera. we met through ebay and fell in love!
who could resist her? i was mesmerized by her gorgeous home back then and was thrilled to find out she’s on the cover of this month’s romantic homes!
i just had to give props to my girl and her incredible collections. she continues to inspire me every day. if you know her boutique, you know it’s stocked with fabulous items from hotels of the past along with tons of great books and furniture.
the photographer really captured the essence of her home but i was inspired to dig out my own pics from our first day together.
lynn, i don’t know if you’ve ever even seen some of these, i have so many shots, (lynn was/is going to be featured in my new book…i know i know, it’s been years of me saying this but, ok well, it’s finally in the works, more on that soon)!
so these shots are blurry and i never really thought i could use them for print so they’ve been collecting dust pixels all these years. who else would appreciate them as much as i do? i thought you might!
these chairs are from the ritz i think…lynn, can you confirm?
her silver collection is insane and so is the memorabilia. she gets what it was like to arrive at the hotel in style back in the day.
i actually didn’t take this shot below. i’m not sure where i picked it up but would recognize her turquoise vintage bath anywhere.
this is reminding me why i saved these cruddy pics all these years. even at 1 megapic they still send me!
is it just me? lynn, you need to do a book.
she’s the epitome of someone who lives with and enjoys all her collections.
this is of course the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
i hope you don’t mind, lynn, i know a lot of your place has changed completely but i was inspired, what can i say? and it’s good to clean out folder and share such a wonderland.
this is her dog bed. nuf said? anyway, she worked on the article with her best friend, janet of french blue (who wrote it). on that same trip i met her and shot her place too. i hope she doesn’t mind if i post it tomorrow but i can’t help myself, i’m on a roll! more to come!
