Then Suzanne Cooper, one of my favorite antique dealers, called and said, "Why don't you come for coffee?"
So I got to go to Suzanne's house. It's a grown-up's house and is filled with so many just-right things.
It was tricky to talk and look as I did not want her to think I was not interested in what she was saying. I was just oh-so-interested in the kinds of things that she would buy herself.
Except, as I was taking it all in, what I was hearing is that she's taking it all out. Well, not exactly. The absolutely lovely antiques are staying, but Miss Suzanne thinks it's time for a change. A little re-decoration.
I was lucky enough to see what comes next and it won't disappoint.
Then, long after my camera battery gave out, Suzanne asked me if I wanted to borrow anything from her library of design books. It was like something I'd never seen. Every much-blogged title stacked in her bedroom bookcase.
