See it in a Room...

So, all this time I've been dying to see what my customers do with their Gypsy Curtains.  I finally hit upon a great idea.  I'll ask them! ( I know, I'm almost as quick as Homer Simpson.)  Right away I got this photo of the curtains she bought styled in a room from the super-nice and talented Whitney.  Look!


I ADORE the branch with the roses drying!!

Stay inspired!

Dreaming of Paris

Dreaming of Paris - specifically of Open Windows that allow AIR to flow through your home.  It's so hot here in Houston that we rush to close doors as if the freezing cold air and snow might come in - except it's the wall of thick, humid heat...


Well, yes - although not all that weak - it's 80 at 9 a.m..  After so many years in the north, we STILL expect the heat to subside somewhat later in the day.  It does not.  It gets hotter.  A day that has been in the 90's will work it's way up to 104 by the late afternoon.  And it's NOT "a dry heat", as they say...


So, I'm dreaming of open windows and Parisian views...

c'est bon, n'est-ce pas?

Happy Campers

Until we find the perfect vintage camper, maybe a tent will have to do...














Since it's about 100 degrees in Houston everyday, I guess we'll have to start small (and stay in the air conditioning).

Hit The Road

I think my next project will be re-doing a vintage camper of some type.  Here's my inspiration - all from LaGypsyYaya's "Gypsy Wanderlust" Pinterest board...








happy wandering!

Touching Strangers

"Touching Strangers" is a series of photographs by New York City photographer Richard Renaldi.  The photos are intimate portraits of people touching who have never actually met.  I ADORE the photos - you can't help but imagine what their connection might be - what's their story?  Even though I know they're strangers, I guess I WANT them to be the way they are in the photos.  It's all about human connection...
