I entered a giveaway on Lisa's Mud Hound Studio blog and won this beautiful book which was awaiting me on my return from vacation.
I've never won a blog giveaway before (I dont think) so this was exciting. The book is beautiful, written by Sibella Court about creating beautiful interiors with magical things. The paper is thick and sturdy. The photos and arrangements exquisite and inspiring. It is the perfect escape read for me right now when I am having a hard time concentrating.
Somewhere in the book she likens a home to a museum. This reminds me of 217 County Road, where I did turn my home into a museum. Not on purpose, but it ended up that way. Old hats tacked to the ceiling, old purses hanging from the walls, a shelf of small purses and hat pins and compacts, old books and dolls. Goodness.
