I got tagged by Courtney of the French Country Cottage.
Is that like playing tag?
I think so...she and I love to read each other's blog
and check out the latest projects.
Courtney asked me to answer these ?s.
*What is your biggest dream?
As a decorator, my dream would be to work
in the world of home decorating/shelter magazines
Wouldn't this be a great magazine?
My other dream would be to have a cute shop
that would sell home furnishings
and decor that appeal to me!
So anything frenchy, vintage or shabby would
be in this shop.
I would also have a section of window treatments
that are being recycled from people
who have redecorated and
changed out their old drapes.
As a mom my biggest dream is to have
all of my children live happy and fulfilling lives.
Sounds cliche, but in this crazy world
it is a big goal to accomplish.
I see them all trying to make their way
and you have to hope they can do it..
so it is a big dream of mine for that to come true.
Dreams are good!
*Where do you live?
I live outside of Boston in an urban setting.
This is a city who has seen a downhill slide
and has its share of issues.
We will move someday to a location
that suits us better,
but for right now because of hubs job,
we are staying put.
So my focus is on making our outdoor
*What were you like in High School?
I hung around with the older kids in upper grades,
and couldn't wait to graduate myself.
Our friends all were welcome at
my parents home.
I loved Art and English classes
and was on the swim team.
*Favorite place to visit?
I love traveling through Europe,
with Greece being my favorite place.
*What or who inspires your decorating style?
Anything done by Elizabeth (Betsy) Speert from Watertown Mass.
Her style is so recognizable to me,
I can always pick her home decor projects
out of a magazine.
out of a magazine.
I also am inspired by Suzanne Kasler
and am looking forward to a book
by designer Carolyn Westbrook.

*What do you love about yourself and what would you like to change?
My favorite thing about myself is my confidence
and trust that I have in my own decisions.
I would like to be less impatient.

Out of Africa.
This movie had it all:
a great love story, beautiful scenery,
a gorgeous house filled with beautiful things.
