sucker with a vision...

i do admit... i love the lost pieces that no one else wants to buy. i find myself falling for them quickly.. and realizing that i can give them new life. i always buy in pairs but when i find pieces like these, i cannot pass them up. where is their mate? why didn't someone want the other?? well someone, at one time had loved them.. and now i will.                                                           have a wonderful weekend everyone...

ole jensen

customers always ask us "what are you working on now?" "when is your next buying trip?" "when is your next shipment coming in?"  well... we always like the element of surprise.... we always have our thinking caps on and are thinking how to make the store and brand the best they can be... and now we are introducing one of the new essentials of the red ticking brand... hand crafted by a brilliant artist... ole jensen. the simple, classic, elegant yet whimsical white dishes are amazing and functional for everyday use. we can certainly custom order... take a peek here... fine bone china from norman copenhagen. simply spectacular.

libeco fine linen napkins, vintage bottles and silver.

white floors

i have always dreamed of having all white floors... when i remodeled my home a few years ago, i wanted the floors bleached. i left town for a minute, came back and of course the guys had proceeded and they were done with light varnish.ugh. i was in a rush to get in the house so i did not rework at the time... big mistake. everytime i see them i think... how i wish i had white floors! the thought of starting over makes me crazy but... this summer... it may happen... thanks to the lovely and talented white and wander for these truly inspiring images... i have stacks on my desk as well... should i do it? what about resale?

my special mother...

i borrowed this lovely image from the amazing "interiors" blog in hopes that it is alright. it is an image from marie solange clark's home in london. i look at it often and i makes me feel so good.. i thought it was appropriate to post it for such a special woman in my life. my dear mother. she is so special to me and i could not ask for a more loving, caring, thoughtful, funny, talented, amazing mother...  i thank God for her... i love you mom.
