major recap

It has been such a long time since my last post. So much has happened. I started a very demanding job which keeps me from doing a lot of things that I like to do. I sort of hit the ground running with the new work schedule. I have been going in very early to get up to speed on everything. It is only now that I am about to start an interior project with a friend of mine that I am making time to start blogging again. I am working on inspiration boards for the project and will post those once I have something to post but in the mean time I thought I would do a short recap of the past 2 months.

I scored a big box of jars back in March for my sand collection. I have been looking for the right shapes and sizes
with very little luck. I finally got lucky and found a whole box of them at the flea market. Here is the stack before they had baths. I can't tell you how relieved I am to have homes for all of the sand I have been accumulating. My friend carter sent a whole box of sand to me from our trip that we took to St. Barth's last year and it has made me sad on many occasions to see those sad little zip lock bags full of gorgeous St. Barth's sand. Anyway now they have homes

I also found 2 new friends shown at the top of page. One of them came with his own little table.

I will update the blog with sand in jar photos as soon as possible.

There has been quite a bit of travel in the past few months and without boring you with details I will just post a few photos of the places we've been.

Above is a photograph I took in Chicago

photographs from Richard's show in Copenhagen at V1

The photo above is a chandelier that was hanging in the Copenhagen train station

These are shoes that my friend Jenni Jet was wearing when I saw her during this trip to Copenhagen. I became obsessed and tried to find them in my size. No luck. I am still a little sad.

cool tree we saw while we were in NYC

This is a photo from the beach house we rented for my big birthday celebration at the beginning of May

In the past 3 months there have been many additions to our collections and I will posting updates with photos of some of the new additions just as soon as I can.

Stay tuned!
