good morning starshine

hi guys, how’s your brand spankin’ new year? i hope it’s off to a marvelous start!

i had to unplug after much of a muchness and am solar charged now that i’m home. even off the grid life was still whizzing by and i want it to be a memorable year that’s happening so fast. i have simple goals, along with the apple a day and a 30 seconds of yoga, i’d like to get here if only just to remember the day or a snapshot from it. i took this pic at sunrise and so much has happened since then that it seemed irrelevant since it’s almost midnight. but it’s the beginning and end of this day. tomorrow will be here soon and there’s just enough time to kick back and enjoy this night. hope you do too!

what’s going on

hey guys hope you’re in the middle of a warm summer night. i just wanted to say a quick hi. sometimes it seems like there has to be a reason to blog, then suddenly there are too many reasons and that combo cancels out any blogging at all.

truth is so much is going on it’s almost surreal. but in blogland we can bliss out and just play with whatever crosses our paths.

most of us share a love for miniatures. my own dollhouse is at my parents and needs an extreme home makeover after being well loved by 6 grandchillins. (the boys as much as the girls)!

these are the creations of the incomprehensibly talented and patient susan harmon hatler. she makes scenes of whatever inspires her. (she  once did the cover of my book and some vignettes from it). we lost touch for years but yesterday reconnected when she sent these shots over. if you have a minute to play, check out her site and be awed by the meticulous detail of her work. or is it play?

i love what true passion looks like

not much is new on the home front as far as nouvelle decor except these mod pieces liz brought over. we found the set years ago and she ended up with them. together they make  a little vanity so they do double duty like the rest of the furniture so far.  they’re formica and i always wanted to copy them in other finishes.  they’re finally mine all mine! for now   :)

the set doesn’t go but i don’t care. it will!

what else from chez moi…curating the shelves

et details

and i got a a lamp inspired by billy baldwin who was noted saying all rooms should have some black. and  i can read in bed now.

oh and if you’re still into the door decor, i came across this keyhole  so of course had to try it.

don’t worry. it fell off! and  i’m moving on!

haha. ah and one last thing to my girl who asked what the heck to do with that switchplate? i had a mirrored one that fit just right. this little corner really proved to be a vortex that could go on forever!

this corner’s next but that’s another day…

so guys, i want to say thanks for stopping over. it’s honestly a real respite to get away and talk smack with you about nothing at all. especially with so much else going on in our worlds. love sharing the lighter side of life with you!

have a great nuit~

the little things

hi all! grab a seat i now have more than just my handy and much loved wooden stools.  i finally got my chairs out of hock and home with me. i found these in paris over a year ago and have finally have them in my possession! they’ve been up and down the east coast but never got recovered till now. even though they were gnarly everyone loved the deep blue silk satin that was left from the original upholstery.


i asked the upholsterer to keep all the insides and even the nail heads. finally committed to a color combo and i love having them as house guests for as long as they stay!

they’re making my beach house seem really frenchy which i didn’t plan on doing. oh well french works anywhere, n’est pas?

i’ll leave you with just a couple shots of the apartment cause everyone’s coming back into town tonight and we’re having a rendezvous toute de suite! so i best jet but wanted to wish you a good night!

ps:  i haven’t done much else but add a knob to the door, but i have to remember that  little details make the whole!

ok gotta, go more soon!
