Life is…

Helen was a smart lady.  I’ve been thinking this weekend about taking chances… like, the crazy scary kind that almost make you wanna crawl back in bed and hide under the covers – where it’s all safe and cozy, and nothing terrible could ever happen.  But nothing amazing ever happens there, either.  I’m talking about the kind of chances people might look at and say, “she’s a lunatic.”  And I’ve taken a few of those.  But… how does it go?  You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.  And of all the nutty decisions I’ve ever made, I’ve realized that nothing negative has ever come out of them.  Those have been the times I have either gained or learned the most.  One of my dearest girlfriends said to me yesterday:  ”You are literally the only person I know who will look back on her life and not have one regret.”  I had never thought about it that way, and I think that might be the one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me.  So anyhow…  I’m just sayin’.  Do it now.  Yolo, yo.  Go live… ya little lunatic you.

Sunday Musings

I can’t.  This is the best party on anyone’s feet I’ve ever seen.  Down to the perfect shade of pink bubble gum polish.  Sophia Webster kicks – available at Saks.

Have you SEEN Tabarka Tile?  Remind me to post about them later this week.

Look at this little lilac stunner!  I’d like to pop triplets of these over a pretty Calcutta Gold island. #nomnomnom

Half of the things I say from my little soapbox on this blog, I say out loud to remind myself of, too.  And this is one of ‘em… I made a few REAL good strides on the “do more of what makes you happy” front today, including a project that started with crossing a few lanes of traffic and throwing myself on top of a wicker headboard in someone’s yard.  I wish I were kidding.

How stunning are these Limoges plates?  We could totally set the table with the doily dress above and everything would be right in the world. #passthecreamedcornplease


The world can never have enough Gusses.
