Design Star-ish

Just a quick note to say thanks to Stacy Downs of the Kansas City Star for including me in her round-up of predictions of trends for '10. I'm in amazingly good company with Peter Dunham, Keith Johnson and Susan Bartlett Crater. In fact, I'll be the first to say it, out-classed by far.

Congratulations Mrs. B.

I don't think you're outclassed!

nice publicity! I enjoy reading your blog. Wish I could tell you where I stumbled upon it, but I cannot recall.

Looks like a Jackson Pollack...is it? Love the look against the dark wallpaper/fabric on the wall...
and of course, congrats!

Dear Mrs. Blandings,
A lady is known by the company she keeps . . . As far as I'm concerned you have your finger most decidedly on the pulse of what is what!

Martha - thanks!

Poindexter - just glad you found me.

Emom - it's a wanna be. In fact, I was just at McCallister's this week and she now has it hanging in her home. The piece was discovered at a local dealer's - Christopher Filley's.

Reggie - high praise from you - thanks!

My faves together in one story. Totally agree about the handcrafted prediction.

You are way too modest, Patricia...your witty writing along with fantastic design sense put you in that group where you deserve to be!

Merry Christmas to you and the Blandings boys

Congratulations! You're fantastically talented, and wear modesty very well!

Reggie Darling is right... you are the company you keep. Well deserved Mrs. B!

And aren't we lucky to have such a great researcher, writer and all-around great person as Stacy Downs here in KC!
