amazing things my friends are doing

tgif! hi all, hope you had a great week and are about to unwind. i just wanted to stop by and share some great things my friends and fellow blog buds are up to.  above all else they are spreading joy by doing great work. check out sandy’s blog and her marvelous fantasy cottage. she recently visited my girl karina gentinetta and took incredible pics of her shop for a book she’s working on. (that’s my chair)!

karina has an amazing story and gorgeous pieces in her new orleans antique shop. she is a true survivor and one fantastic reason to go to new orleans. she never gave up on the city she loves.

the brilliant katie armour has started an incredible online magazine, the first issue profiles one of my favorite bombshells, haleigh of making magique who lives a dream in paris. she came to the bloggers meet-up and was pure fairy dust!

finally, my other dear friend, mimi (an american living a true fairy tale in paris too),  has launched her very own online magazine this month aussi! it’s filled with articles from her fantastic team of friends. i’m totally motivated by you gorgeous ladies and can’t wait to see what else you have in store!

well it’s about that time to make sure it’s a night to remember so i better go, have a great weekend!
