Random Thoughts

I am in a bit of a frenzy mixed with a blur and a large pinch of sadness.  

With 2 of my 3 children out the door in 2 weeks, I cannot focus or I have an extra large dose of ADD. 

I am going to just share the things on my mind…

This is the greatest, sturdiest and most reliable tote ever.  They are just back in stock. I ordered them for all my children, 8 for my office client bags and extras too

I literally cannot wait for the Donald Robertson Assouline book. He was one of my favorite features ever. 

“It is no coincidence that Donald Robertson, known as @drawbertson to his hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, has become the fashion world’s favorite art bomber of the Instagram era. Humorous and sharp, Robertson’s work is collected by stars such as Beyoncé and featured in collaborations with it-brands like Smashbox and retailers including Bergdorf Goodman. Earning himself the moniker “the Andy Warhol of Instagram,” Robertson is celebrated as an inspiration by members of the fashion and art worlds, in addition to almost anyone who sees his work. This father of five who has “written off the whole sleeping thing” is as prolific as he is talented, and this monograph will feature the very best of his artwork as well as original work created especially for this title. Featuring playful anecdotes and quotes from industry leaders, fashion designers, and his many collaborators and muses, Donald is already a collector’s item.”

How cute is this Target Nate Berkus lamp?

Dying to try this new Charlotte restaurant, The Packhouse. Check out this menu!

I cannot wait to land at Il Pellicano in Italy soon enough! 

Beautiful Birds needed in my life! 

Chicest little rainboots I ever did see…

We started watching Ozark…It is DARK but too good. 

Lesley Grainger has a great new collection. Check it out. 

Love these travelling wine cups!

Have you seen the latest House Beautiful?  Be still my color loving heart! It is chocked full of great projects. 

In the spirit of back to school I am wanting a backpack

or this one

I think I need a retreat to 42 Acres in Somerset… who wants to go? 

“We provide a space for:

Individuals to experience inner transformation.

Practitioners and healers to share their wisdom.

Leaders to create global change.

True purpose to grow.”

Still appalled and disgusted with the bigotry we are witnessing in the USA…

    Holly, Thank you tons for including the Maya Angelou Quote @ the end of your post today. . . often these days I feel a bit of guilt oogling over new chairs or wallpaper or art or clothes or shoes. With the turmoil going on all around us it seems small to want to see and read about these things. Ending w/ those particular words was Good.
