hello Monday...can I please play catch up?

Hello lists...hello to-dos...hello summer projects.

Most days I feel as if I take 2 steps forward...and one step back.

And in the midst of it all...I get a lot done...but never seem to catch up! 
Does anyone?

So hello long overdue peek at The Country Living Fair...oddly enough I am already getting ready for the Fall events in OH & GA and I still had not posted the Rhinebeck images to the blog -- though I have gotten them to facebook and Instagram....anyway...HELLO RHINEBECK!
Hello overdue peek...

Hello to the women who made it all possible...
I am so grateful to have them as friends...
 




 
Hello to the demos and Earth Angels LIVE!...
love this chance to see the artists at work...



 
Hello to the pretty and artful things I am so proud to sell...
 













Hello...sigh...hello to doing what you can when you can...

Hello to best efforts at playing catch up.

Hello long summer days to get things done...
I LOVE the lack of schedule for the kids... 

Hello day trips.

Hello ice cream for dinner.

Hello to keeping cool.

Hello to all of you...

hello Monday...Hello HUDSON! Hello Mercantile and Hello Fab BOOK!

...hello Monday.

Sometimes it does take me some time to get around 
to sharing a peek at something special...
Things move quickly around here, and I can hardly believe it's been a few weeks since the exciting book signing at the Hudson Mercantile for Mary Randolph Carter's fab new book Never Stop to Think...Do I Have a Place for This... 


Total wowness as it explores the homes and hearts of 17 amazing collectors...among them my friends  
painter, Jennifer Lanne and antique dealer & designer, Stephanie Lloyd
I am totally smitten with the book, 
and I am ready to move into the homes and among the objects it shares...

Here's a peek at the You-Tube video Carter did to showcase her new book...and after you've had a gander...you can click here to buy the book from Rizzoli.

Hello to wonderful things...

Here are a few shots from the new Hudson Mercantile.  
The book signing event was hosted among its treasures from 
Stephanie and some truly love paintings by Jennifer...
 
Hello to new ideas for old things...

Hello cool old car sign... 
Hello to the odd and wonderful...
 Hello pillow, I think I love you...
 Hello sunshine on cool stuff...
 Hello and ROAR...I love old cement animals.
 Hello tribe of hens and chicks...
 Hello to lucky shutters....
 Hello to anything funky en masse...
 Hello wonderful petite landscapes...

 Hello Monday...

Hello to having a place for anything you love...

Hello to new friends and old and hello to sharing them all...
 they are the best of collections.


Hello to the  The Hudson Mercantile and go visit soon! 
I am taking Kathy up this week and I cannot wait...
...more soon on that!

...and Hello Carter...come visit me!

xxoo Jen
