So I found this chair…

At the vintage shop and I just couldn't help myself. Like I need another chair. Like the shop needs another chair. But I had to get it because it's so damned cute. Now to decide what to do with it? Stay tuned for the after photos.

Merry Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve morning When I arrived at the shop I found that some unknown person had left these two cute stuffed animals completely unattended, new, with tags still on them, sitting on the corner. Almost everyone was stopping to stare at them with that questioning look. I thought for sure that someone's dog, while being walked, would walk off with the toys. But when I left the store at 3 o'clock, they were miraculously still there. Funny! Anyhoo.......I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Eve and a fantastic Christmas Day! I have done absolutely nothing but eat, drink (lots of champagne) and lay on the couch watching Sherlock Holmes. Dreamy.........

Hooray for Pok Pok !

So I was at Costco this morning. I know, I know, what was I thinking?? The weekend before Christmas? But I was wandering the aisles and found a new cookbook. The Pok Pok cookbook by Andy Ricker. Hooray for Pok Pok! Hooray for Portland! What a great gift!

I am coveting this mirror....

....... For my bathroom. Wow!!!

don't fret!

Another lovely kitchen remodel.

This teeny little kitchen turned out so cute and cheerful! Took everything back to studs and started over. The only thing that came with this kitchen was the stove. I have to find the before pictures because it is such a dramatic change!

Pental tile and marble

I love both of these tile applications I found at Pental! I am hoping a client enjoys the arabesque pattern as much as I do for her kitchen!

Hilarious !

I was at a friends house this morning, and this was the creative approach she took to decorating the Longhorn. I freaking love it!

I am such a fabric junkie!

I went to a fabric showing today at the Lindy'd showroom, for Thibaut and Anna French. Such stunning collections! I was so in all of the collections, I forgot to take more pictures! Yikes!

Look! These stag-horn ferns had teeny little babies. So damned cute!

Flora Grubb (sigh....)

I love Flora Grubb. Arnica and I stopped by her amazing shop on the way to the airport after completing our Fermob furniture training. As usual the displays were a knockout. I particularly love the orange display, as you can imagine. Now we're at the airport drinking, again, with a little food on the side while waiting for our flight. More tomorrow.

Bacon chips.

Seriously. A revelation..

A day of training...

Arnica and I are hard at work in Healdsburg California at the Fermon retailer training. Notice we're drinking first. Then we're looking at furniture. Then we're learning about furniture. And we're drinking more and eating. A good time was had by all.
