My favorite room...


This is my favorite room in one of my favorite homes.

Stacey Bear lives in a stone house that has been in her husband Doug's family since the 1840s. Built in 1812, it has 3 foot thick walls, wide plank floors and many generations of stories that hang about it like patina. It's the perfect back drop to her many beloved collections and antiques.

It blooms with her imitable style and there's just no place like it for me...I have said many times, if you find that I have run away, look no further than Stacey's...







So many wonderful meals around this table, a quiet breakfast with Ro, chocolate cake for Rory's second birthday, laughs over a late supper last summer -- all of us exhausted from the day-long antiques hunt...and there will be many more times I pull up a chair in this room, grateful to know it, and the hostess that invites me there time and again.

Thanks Stacey for sharing all that you are, your talents, and your home with me.
xxoo Jen

ps...I will post on the room you can see just beyond the doorway soon...stay tuned...
