happy halloween!



Happy Halloween, dahlings! I hope you’re having a lovely autumn weekend. For those of you with children and/or young nieces or nephews, I hope to see photos of your little ones in costume on the blogs tomorrow! Speaking of little children dressed in costume, I wish I could recall where I found this photo of JFK with "John-John" and Caroline (dressed for Halloween :) in the Oval Office. Isn’t it priceless? I love that Caroline is holding a black kitty... I bet one of the White House staff members arranged for that black kitten to be dropped off for the night. Children of the White House must be so spoiled ;) Be safe, everyone! A demain.

a short story by wes anderson



A few days ago, I stumbled across this short story written by Wes Anderson while he was an undergrad. If you're a Wes Anderson fan, I think you'll get a kick out of reading it! Even back then you could tell that he had an eye for directing motion pictures-- in the story, he mentions how he would film a certain shot if it were a film. He also mentions Jack Kennedy and Debussy's La Mer-- two of my favorite things :) Thank you, Analecta, for scanning this in!

bookshelf makeover



Acting on some advice from a very talented New York interior designer, I decided to add some accent lighting to my bookshelf last night. I went to Home Depot, picked up a few “mini moonlights” and stuck them underneath my shelves. The result is magical! Ideally, I’d like to have a bookshelf with built-in lights (but beggers can’t be choosers :). If your bookshelf isn’t lit, I encourage you to do the same. This project is a fool-proof DIY-- I promise!

the windsor style



Good morning, dolls! I am just thrilled to share these photos of the Duke and the Duchess of Windsor’s Bois de Boulogne (a park in the 16th arrondissement of Paris) estate with you today. I scanned them in from the most fabulous book called “The Windsor Style” by fashion journalist Suzy Menkes (a very welcome addition to my library). I’ve always been curious as to what the interior of the Paris home of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor looked like... The couple was said to have moved into the estate after Maison Jansen, the legendary design firm, redecorated the home under the supervision of the Duchess. Isn’t it amazing? I only wish that it was still in tact so I could visit! I think I could write about seven more pages regarding the photos below, but I'll leave them open to your own interpretation. What do you think?
