I am thankful every day for the many fun, interesting, kind and lovely people I have met and meet, on a daily basis. I have a fun gig in cyberland, I must say!
There has been a lot of customer interactions in the last couple of days. And let me just tell you that there will be a lot of styling women wearing Ilse Jacobsen’s flip-flops this summer (see previous post)! My shop has already sold out of many sizes/colors. (Upon request I will soon carry them in black). Thank you for trusting me with your business.
A person who makes me purr (sorry Marianne, I know you prefer doggies!) is Marianne with Style For Living who has become a really good, close friend who I can chat design (and other phenomenally important things !) with, 24/7. There are a lot of phone calls and running between houses with family members in tow. All great fun. Marianne decided a while ago to put her high-paying corporate job aside and instead focus entirely on her design business. I am so proud of her. Her business is growing and lots of exciting things are happening for her!
She just gave a client’s ottoman a much needed makeover.
Can you all say in chorus – OH MY! Can you even believe it is the same piece. What a transformation!
For more on her design services — hop over here. Marianne gets my highest recommendations (well of course!).
In cyberland I also recently met another fabulous lady, Ms. M. She bought not one but two of my Scandinavian wool blankets.
She told me she is a designer and of course I got quite curious. She sent me this picture the other day and sent her back an e-mail saying – yes, just that! - OH MY!!!
I mean hello! She lives in a super cool loft (with a working fireplace which apparently is rare in loft spaces). And do you see my blanket on the chaise? Ms. M (I am keeping her name a secret for now) is a well established designer who is busy with all kinds of fun design jobs (including set design for TV shows). Soon, very soon, I will show more of of her home and you will all flip out! This girl also treasures Swedish antiques. I am just saying…. I can’t wait to introduce her to all of you! You will love her as much as I do.
More Oh-My’s. I am always out treasure shopping in cyberland. Yes, I am still collecting vintage leather postcards. Here is my latest purchase! Ha ha! (Purr purr).
My very latest crush is antique wax seals. I just came across a good sized lot and I am quite content over here.
I love the texture and the history behind these antique beauties, they add that extra punch of color to a room. I just have to figure out how to best frame them.
Do you know what is so cool about both of these collections? They work in both traditional and contemporary rooms. I like that.
That’s it for now. Need to roll up my sleeves and get more flippies out the door!
I hope this post finds you well.
Hugs to you all!
