After a fun tour of Hampton Mansion yesterday with fellow bloggers, Architect Design, JCB and Michael Hampton(and our other non-blog friend Michael), we headed to the Book Thing to drop off and pick up books. Between four of us, we got more than 50 books!
As soon as I walked in the door, I headed to the decoration section and there, with a faint glow surrounding it, was a near perfect copy of Billy Baldwin Decorates! I hadn’t even been at the BT for seven seconds when I got it. I never go to BT on a Saturday, but since this was part of the day’s entertainment, we went.
I am a huge fan of fellow Baltimorean, and have written about him here, and here. I found a signed copy of his book, Billy Baldwin Remembers a few months ago, so finding Decorates is a coup! Of course, I haven’t had time to read it yet, but the Peak of Chic did a review of it a few years ago, here.
