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!

hello Monday & hello what I caught...

Hello Monday.

I seem to forever be holding a camera in my hand. 
But I never seem to be able to capture the pictures 
I want to when we have our annual Family & Friends Reunion to kick off our summer here in Warwick....
Admittedly, it gets a bit extra crazy...but as I replay the day in my head...well, I wish I had the images to share. And why do I NEVER EVER EVER seem to get a photo of Micah (oh he is chained to the grill!) Or all the cousins...or my folks...
Sigh.

Hello to the 193 folks we had here this year...
Hello to being to busy cooking and serving to really capture the party.
Sigh again...but I loved every minute.

So hello Monday and it's better to have a peek at something special than not see it at all...And hello Monday, it's better late than never.
(the party was 2 weeks ago!!!)
A special thanks to Tuny, Connor and Patrick and Anne, too! ...for making long distance journeys -- and complicated returns thanks to the storms -- from Colorado and Australia.  It was a joy to have you here...


 Hello Family...
Hello Friends...
 Hello the story of my life you've made.


Here are some of the shots I did get...



















 AND HELLO DESSERT PARADE






Until next year....we'll keep the good memories close.

xo Jen
