|Come into my office. The wicker couch is old. We bought it 20 years ago.|
|The bookcase with glass doors was from my childhood home and I don't know if it was originally from Dad's parents? He painted it white. The tray on top is new and matches telephone table.|
|The fat perforated votive holder is crisp and white. The rose begonia should stay alive if I'm lucky and don't overwater it. I got it at Bartlett's, my favorite garden shop.|
|I think this box was my Grandma Rosie's? I have to check with Sis and Lin. I keep the keys to the Cape Cod house in the box--Dad gave me his set, with little red pocket knife. I added key chain young Figgy made.|
It all started with the small faux turquoise leather rolling telephone table with silver wheels--I saw it when I went to interview interior designer Jules Duffy in her studio in Madison, NJ in the spring. Here's the ARTICLE I later wrote about her. She was all about blues, and I fell in love with a perfect pale blue table with round top but I think it was $700 plus? This one was more affordable. It took me a while to go get it--they take only cash and checks--but yesterday was the day!!!! If I roll it a bit, I feel like a glamorous stewardess.
I spent about $530 on outfitting my new space, counting 2 large matching faux leather trays, a striking piece of white porcelain coral, a picture frame, a perforated white votive holder. I love the way the clean turquoise and freshly dipped white look together. And I think I deserve a beautiful space to create in. My desk isn't clear yet, so I'll show that another time.
Good night to you. Pacific dreams of white-topped waves...
- Boot camp. Have not slept well for a week due to pain in calf--and also, Punch has woken up in the middle of the night two nights in a row with earache, etc. Was going to skip boot camp and texted Patsy to say so, but she said I should go and do some stretches, arm exercises, etc. Glad I did. I love that group.
- Office cleanup--decluttering my life story.
- Salon blowout.
- Made BLTs on wheat toast for dinner.
