Just revisited this post from April 2011... Thought it would be fun to repost. It was really a fun time!   April 2011 Turns out there's more to Augusta than azaleas and Tiger Woods... Yes, the Masters in Augusta was amazing and Tiger had all in a frenzy by noon on Sunday.  Here are a few fun facts about the event provided by a female non-golfer. - While walking to the gate and upon entering the event, visitors are greeted by intense lovers of Jesus.  We pass "Master's Corner" a tricky play on words, and then are accused along the way by extreme activists who are convinced we are sinners.  I'm not sure what the correlation between attending the Masters and being a sinner is, but nevertheless, they were adamant. - What you've heard about the azaleas and magnolias is true - truly magnificent. - People who attend the Masters [...]

aptware for sale

  As many of you know, my obsession with aptware is one of the main reasons I opened my shop online. I made it my mission to find it and sell it! I have since found several vendors and have fulfilled oh so many orders. It is still fairly hard to find in the US, and we often have to wait extended periods of time, and deal with translation issues, shipping issues, and so forth, but dreams have come true for many happy customers.   It all started with this image from Carolyne Roehm. I loved everything about this table, but the aptware really stood out. I have posted and referred to it many times. I can also special order those monogrammed napkins if anyone is interested.      Looks like Aerin also has a set of these beauties!   Barry Dixon posted these pics from Thanksgiving... Love it in brown!! Charlotte [...]

It's time to do some antique shopping! The Lauritzen Gardens Antiques Show opens this Friday for it's 15th anniversary weekend, with a Preview Party for patrons on Thursday night. I was lucky enough to walk through this morning as the dealers were setting up, to get a sneak peek. Sharing the photos here, I hope to spark new interest, and get visitors down to the Show. Please visit the website here to view the weekend schedule, and make plans to come down! The Lauritzen Gardens Antiques Show, in Omaha, NE, provides a unique opportunity to shop for antiques brought from all over the country. No shipping costs! It is a highlight for anyone who enjoys updating their home with something pulchritudinous. (I recently read/looked up/learned this word and I couldn't wait to use it.) You will find beautiful rugs and furniture, and distinctive, one-of-a-kind accessories you will not see in a [...]

  So excited for the 2018 Lauritzen Gardens Antiques Show!    I truly believe the homes of Omaha, Nebraska get prettier each September thanks to the Lauritzen Gardens Antiques Show. Even when I promise myself I don't need one more thing, there always seems to be something I can add to a room to make it a little better. And sometimes, a lot better! There is always inspiration to be found during the weekend of the Show.   New dealers are welcomed each year, joining a collection of favorite dealers from years past. The speakers are always a highlight, and in recent years, educational talks have been added to the weekend. The Antique and Design Academy talks this year include Cynthia Nouri from Sasha Nicholas and Rebecca Vizard, aka B.Viz, of Once Upon a Pillow.   Our Luncheon Speakers are Miles Redd on Friday, Steven Stolman on Saturday, and Matt Stamp on [...]

One of my cute friends emailed me after reading my last post and said it took her an hour to figure out what SIL was. LOL. I was cracking up. Sister-in-law. My last post featured a dinner party at the home of my Omaha sister-in-law.  Thought I better clear that up before presenting another SIL's living situation in NYC!  This apartment could not be cuter! We were headed out the door to walk to dinner, and I made everyone wait while I ran back in and took a few photos with my iPhone.    Coco and Watson Coco is the mean one on top. Watson is the nice one at the bottom.  Coco only likes her family, not including Watson.   Please know this: There is an adorable Kate Spade lamp coming soon to light up the other side of the bed shown below. IT IS ADORABLE! I was almost [...]
