I had a scheduled drop off for a client one afternoon this week. I have worked with her before and she and her family and just lovely.
Here are the twin nightstands that you will be seeing soon in Aubusson Blue.
You also may remember the black console I refinished for her.
We actually had a chance to sit in the dining room and chat a bit while my Littles tore up the house around us. Alisa told me how she felt like we were friends through my writing and business and she knew that other readers felt this way too, but she also wanted to always respect my boundaries. Tears grew in my eyes. I thought of all of you that have loved me like a best friend and I need you to know that you all are my dear friends too. If I could have you all over for tea I would!
I have had the pleasure of getting to know you through your furniture; your past and your family geneology. I remember every piece that has passed through my door and I think of your grandparents that owned these pieces or the care that you gave to finding a perfect piece for your own home.
I had the chance to get to know a little bit more about Alisa on Wednesday. I truly, truly am interested in your lives. I heard about her annual tea party, her interest in desgin, and her daughter’s uncanny connection to my celebrity crush, BW. Brian Williams.
Thank you for trusting me with pieces from your lives. It fills me up and creates joy in my life. It makes me want to encourage you to find a connection to the world out there through what makes YOU you. The world opens up when we are ourselves and connect with others that appreciate and understand.
