///I've been trying to be a more proper host to any guests that I have at my home. I even brought out the antique chinoiserie china the other night (READ: Cost Plus). A night with close friends, a bottle (or three) of wine and great food can be so much more relaxing than being out.
///I have a new bad habit...afternoon power naps. They aren't even on purpose...it just happens, and I guess my body is telling me something. Woke up on the sofa the other day to these beautiful shadows after passing out for 30 minutes with paperwork on my chest, a glass of water spilled on the floor and my iPad stuck in between the cushions...oops.
///With all the grey and rain this past week, I spent some rare downtime in the office writing orders for all of antique textiles I have picked up on the last few buying trips to be placed in some projects. Old rugs, flags, grain sacks, blankets will be transformed (by my awesome seamstresses, and a lot of down filling) into some pretty swanky pillows.
///I also wired 6 demi-john wine jugs for lamps for different projects. One of the few electrical things I know how to do and actually enjoy.
///Demolition day's may in fact be better than final installs for me. So much cool texture and promise of a fresh start. This shot shows the surround for a new tub going in.
///Tried (and succeeded) at staying pretty low key this weekend before one last crazy week before I am off for a month! A long walk downtown to the sculpture park and beyond filled my eyes and my phone with a bunch of new inspiring images. I cannot wait to branch out even further on my travels and recharge the visual batteries. I may post something before I leave this week but if not...it's a silly blog...go out and see for yourself.
All the best to you.
