The list of things for which I am thankful would fill page upon page. Somewhere quite near the top would be having a husband who will not blink when I add a decoupage lamp to the mix of leather and silver and horn.
Wishing all of you a happy Thanksgiving. Mrs. Blandings
I wandered into one of my favorite shops eight years ago to buy a dog ball and, through a very indirect route, ended up here writing about decorating, my family and life. My posts are not as frequent as they used to be, but you're welcome to drop in anytime.
What's that? Why "Mrs. Blandings?" Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House is a 1940's movie starring Cary Grant and Myrna Loy chronicling their adventures in renovating. In the movie, Loy delivers an iconic description of paint colors that nearly every design aficionado knows by heart. She is my muse.
