I went on a little field trip to Rye, New York to kick off the holiday season. I spent some time with Eddie and Jaithan. If you're not familiar with Eddie Ross he has an impressive background working with Martha Stewart and House Beautiful. The focus of this event was stylist's secrets to holiday decorating and entertaining.
The day was encapsulated with meeting a few fellow bloggers, lunching with lovely ladies that were not only kind but witty. The presentation was interesting and I'm looking forward to putting some of Eddie's idea into play in my own home. I learned a few non decorating lessons today that will serve me just as well as those that Eddie provided.
The morning began with perusing through many wonderful treasures from Eddie's Etsy shop. It was sensory overload and my brain couldn't think fast enough as to what I *needed* and where to place it in our home. I know, thinking shouldn't have been an option. Oh the pressure! :)
These are a few of the lovely items I parted with. I had to laugh at all the milk glass items. When my mother passed away we sold her very extensive collection. At the time I didn't care for the pieces and carried no appreciation for the plates, platters, vessels or their designs. I was in my late 20s at the time. Clearly I had no sense of taste. Now there is great regret as her collection was amazing and I've developed a fondness for its beauty.
On my way home to Connecticut, I stopped at one of my favorite shops in Old Saybrook where I found this sweet little creamer. I'm going to keep it by my sink to place my jewelry in while I'm cooking. I think my favorite find of the day is the salt and pepper shakers on the little tray.
