Last night, celebrating the Independence Day holiday on my friends’ deck over-looking Baltimore’s Inner Harbour was such fun. Even though it was hot, it was not too humid and it was breezy. The fireworks were amazing and the food and company were fabulous! Poor Connor had to be dosed with puppy Valium in order to stay calm while I was gone. He’s been hung-over all day, and while I hate giving him drugs, it’s best for both of us that I do it. It was a quiet day here today, both because of the intense heat and the fact that I felt like I should stick around for Connor. Oh, and the fact that I have a whacking summer cold.
I did manage to add some things to my Etsy site, including these fabulous Lilly print pennants. It was great fun seeing some of my pennants flying last night as I was walking around Federal Hill. I am really beginning to add a lot of things to the Etsy site as I continue clearing out the house. In the near future, look for a perfect and perfectly gorgeous linen sheet I picked up at a marché in France, some more of the French Ivory cutlery, and some great handbags.
I read a great article in the Financial Times today by the amazing Daphne Guinness who is buying all of Isabella Blow’s clothing and thus, stopping the auction at Christies London, which was scheduled for later this year. It’s a lovely tribute to Daphne’s long friendship with Isabella blow and explains in detail why she felt she had to purchase the collection intact. Thanks to Little Augury for bringing this to my attention.
I am heading back to work after 10 days off. When I took off for the week or so, I thought I’d have settled on a new house and be living there already. Things changed at the speed of light, but I’ve moved on and am looking to do some house-hunting shortly.
