Summer. Love It. Love the long days. Love the heat. Love the water. It just puts me in a good mood.

"And I have heard just about every possible argument against hiring a designer-they're too expensive, or they push people into going beyond their budgets and style comfort zones. 'I don't need one,' I've been told, 'because I have a connection who can get me into designer showrooms,' as if designers were little more than personal shoppers.
None of this is true, of course. I have had the privilege of watching designers at work, and have witnessed how much thought, expertise, hard-won experience, and sheer legwork go into the seemingly magical transformations they oversee. Even the grandest talents never lose sight of the practical-such as where to place overhead lights, or how high the light switch and the door lock should be. It is because these myriad mundane yet crucial considerations are second nature to them that designers can make creating a successful room seem effortless." - Michael Boodro, Editor in Chief Elle Decor
I thought this was so well put; thank you Mr. Boodro for a eloquent Editor's Page in this month's issue. The rest is certainly worth reading.

Another birthday came and went this week but I could not really think of anything I particularly wanted. Except this....
I pass three Wagoneer's every day on the way to work and I think they are starting to rub off on me. Also, would not mind an old- circa 90's- Land Rover. Just a thought....

need would like some light fixtures just like these.
Details...they are just so important.
Normally the scale would drive me crazy but it works here....and I like it a lot.
Easy. Need I say more?

My Sister-In-Law sent me this article this morning, perfect timing. Getting out the door every morning running no less than 10 minutes behind is a small victory every day. This morning that feat proved to be even harder with a cranky, cranky, colored ALL over the wall toddler. Good thing I have pictures like this saved on my phone that make me instantly forget I aged 5 years in 1 hour.

For the time being I have decided to take on a second space in conjunction with my current space (#15) in Interiors and Antiques. Another title for this post could be, "The One Where She Lost Her Mind". Craziness, a whole other level of craziness. The second space is in Interiors @ Pepper Place. I am still getting moved in but so far, so good. I am not sure I will be able to keep both places up but I am excited to give it a try, at least for 6 months.
If you are in Pepper Place, especially for the Farmer's Market please come by!

Summer is here. This weekend was the official start of longer days, heat to great you when you walk outside, the pool, cookouts, flip flops...watermelon. I am a summer baby. I am as happy in the water and scorching heat as any other place and time of year. While unfortunately summer does not bring with it a summer break I am going to take additional time off to be with Henry. I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I especially want to say thank you to those men and women who have and are bravely serving our country. You deserve more than I could ever write here.
