hi guys happy monday. the day flew by and i’m well into the night shift. i’m just popping by with what we’ve been up to for the past couple days, the new products being loaded onto the site (we’re still tweaking so don’t mind the typos and shorthand ‘p
the website had taken a back seat till liz learned how to upload products and pictures last week. now her obsession is ‘shopping’ for the boutique and we’re fattening it up. i’m finally going through my vendors both here and in france. we worked on pillows today and are happy to say we added trina turk’s line among others.
not to cut it short but something weird just happened to my computer to i think it’s a good time to shut down. more manana!
hey all, happy sunday! i hope you had a great weekend. mine was full with much too much to sort through so i just wanted to stop by and share yesterday’s photo shoot. are you as obsessed with paper as i am? i completely forgot till these books finally arrived from paris. they totally inspired and couldn’t stop snapping them.
each book is handmade and unique. the paper is cottony soft in the way it’s been made for centuries.
i could eat them up!
it’s been months since i’ve shot anything so it was good to experiment with my camera. it took a bunch of books to bust it out after a very long hiatus and i’m grateful for that!
anyway it’s time for the housewives so i’m officially tuning out and shutting down early. have a bonne nuit et beaux rêves!
PS it’s a couple days later and i put them on my website here: theparisapartment.com/boutique
hey guys, how’s your week going? i’ve been laying low and reigning it in, feeling a lot better. and staying put seems to be making things happen. i’m down to a one page inbox and have this rare chance to blog. between the boring stuff i’ve been fattening up my web boutique to make use of all the ‘thrifiting’ i did west palm over the last couple weeks.
this wasn’t one of the pieces i found but it’s one from a vendor i work with, eloquence. they shop europe to bring pieces back here and even reproduce some of them. i died for some pieces their ship brought in this week!
i wish i had a place for an armoire like this. what an heirloom. i wonder whose it was?
i could eat it!
they have simpler pieces too. i’m a closet freak!
there’s just something about storage that i love. maybe cause i don’t have a real closet at the moment.
anyway i just wanted to share some of their eye candy.
funny how furniture can be as pretty as any jewel!
in other breaking news, liz now has the hang of selling on ebay, and she’s a free bird flying! i wanted to let you know that besides cleaning out her gorgeous closet,
she’s also selling furniture like the chair and stool below. if you get a chance, check her out!
finally, it’s election night. this adorable graphic was sent to me by a client who’s daughter created it. i thought it was fitting at least to acknowledge the importance of the election tonite. i’m not political or even as educated as i should be on how things work in our country, but i am grateful for life here. whatever your political convictions are, i hope our next move is to finesse this mess together to make a great change with compassion and negotiation. ok it’s time to shut down. have a great night!
