This is going to be good: Tom Scheerer’s book

I am so excited and flattered to receive a preview copy of Tom Scheerer’s first book!  As you know from herehere, and here, I am a fan of his work.   Well those pictures don’t do it justice.  His book is long overdue – the pictures are beautiful… Not to mention the designs are stunning and truly one of a kind.  He has a style that is different from any other.  Tom, why did you wait so long for this compilation?  Here’s a little preview.  Just a few of my faves courtesy of The Vendome Press…

I love twin beds.  And I love a canopy bed.  Therefore the following picture is my heaven.  Not to mention those bedspreads with the fringe (my mom has that bedspread, thanks to moi!)!  I think Tom and I would get along just fine :)

I believe those tiles are cement tiles… Aren’t they fun?

Concrete

This may sound strange but I just love concrete.  What’s not to love about concrete?  Concrete is a composite material with countless uses ranging from building foundation to kitchen countertops.   Not to mention it’s cheap.  Much cheaper than, say, marble.   You could say that concrete has an advantage over marble because it gives that rustic/industrial look that marble can’t quite achieve.

Royal Residences… and some exciting news!

You might say this post is a little late, but there is a reason why I’m just now dedicating a post to the Royal Baby…

In exactly two weeks I will be landing in London for a ten day visit!  I am so thrilled I can hardly focus on anything else.  A while ago, my sister decided she was going to study abroad in Europe for a semester.  Obviously, I was extremely jealous and determined to figure out a way to visit her.  I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t take the opportunity to make another trip to Europe.  [Ever since I went to Paris and Italy four years ago, I’ve been dying to go back.]  So after saving my money and recruiting a couple enthusiastic family members, I chose to visit my sister around the time of her 21st birthday, which is when she will be near London.  Aren’t I the best big sister ever?  Tell her that because sometimes she doesn’t think so… :)

So far we have plans to visit all of the following “Royal Residences”.  I can’t believe I’ll be seeing these beautiful castles in person in just two weeks.  To say that I’m excited is an understatement!

If any of you have any advice/recommendations I would love to hear it!!!!

Loving some pretty milk glass right now

I’ve been compiling some pretty pictures of milk class for quite a while now.  This morning I went to a very good friend’s house and noticed she had a new gorgeous white milk glass pitcher on display in her kitchen.  It finally inspired me to post the pics!  I would love to have a collection of milk glass some day.  Just another thing to add to my long list of goals :)
