A Sneak Peek

My Dining Room

This is a little peek at my house - the painting is a brand new acquisition from a wonderful art show and auction of local Sarasota artists to benefit Guide Dogs and Alzheimer's. The painting features a pair of roseate spoonbills that I also have in my backyard along with a zooful of animals. The house has ten foot ceilings which makes everything look great. I am excited to combine my Chinoiserie collection with some new Florida pieces as well. Headed to West Palm Beach soon for some great vintage shopping there.

Below is a quick shot of my lanai with lots of my blue and white Chinese porcelain.

My Lanai

Below is me winning first prize at the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party at a beautiful rooftop venue in Sarasota last month. I am definitely getting blonder down here!

  4. This is so great that the best design blog on the Internet is back!! You were sorely missed! My suggestion is to put a tip jar on the page, so people can reward you, if they like, for all the time you put into this site. When it stopped, I realized what a loss it was from my daily routine, so I'd love to be able to support it going forward to make sure that never happens again!!
    Welcome back, Beth! If your new place looks a fraction as good as you look now, it's gonna be a real winner!!
