August thoughts...

Hello, dear reader.  Catching up now with thoughts from August.  I have been elsewhere (both literally and figuratively) this past month, and have missed my little virtual home.

Thanks to Alethea for sharing her vision with us---what an evening we had!  (Research shows: Mint Juleps are very popular.)   And congratulations are in order!  Following in the footsteps of "chelliswilson." darlings Sara & Kellen, Alethea will be spending the month of March in residence at Gas Design Center in Alabama!  Perhaps a tradition's been started?

A huge and humble "Thank you!" for this generous nod----it brought so many amazing people our way.

the definition of the perfect home.  Mine has this spirit, this staircase, and this chair (!).

Set design and retail spaces.  I'd like one of these giant roses, please.
