Vintage Letters

I have had a cache of these wonderful old letters stashed away for some time now, and recently decided to find a way to use/display them. They are a series of letters written by a mother, who lives in France, to her grown daughter, who lives in West Roxbury. They span most of the 1880's and are so lovely - daily chat about her Parisian life, Christmas greetings, sketches of her garden, etc.

I thought I'd try using them as wallpaper on the wall under my Dining Room mantle piece.

I was not sure if I had enough when I first spread them out.

But it turned out I had exactly the right amount to overlap them as I wanted to, to give it a more three dimensional quality.

I think I like it! I may have to change the mantle display now, though. Maybe a bit busy...

Some Days in the Life....

I've been a bit remiss with my blogging lately.  I know we are all very busy and understand how that goes. The good news is that when I am busy I can give you some eye candy to illustrate what I'm busy with!

Choosing fabrics for design clients.......

Early mornings at the Flower Market to get flowers for......

Styling photo shoots. 
(I know, there are no flowers in this shot. No letters please ;) )

Trips to NYC for a FAB new project I will tell you all about in a bit........
(have you seen the new WTC tower? Isn't it beautiful??)

And to Lake Placid to style another photo shoot...

And trying to grab some time to stop and smell the......peonies. Mine are blooming and are my absolute favorite.

No complaints here, I fully realize these responsibilities inform a pretty fantastic life, as those things go. 
I hope you feel the same about yours!
