~ hillary apartment update


Just had the best weekend in Chicago with my daughter Hillary!

After some MAJOR spring cleaning, I figured it was time for an update post... It is really coming along!



The view is still breathtaking...


We took off the slipcovers on the couch and washed... I mean it's like getting a brand new couch!




Just love the Jonathan Adler pillows!














Sorry. I think I keep posting this same vignette. I took a million photos. The lighting with all those windows is so crazy, the glare makes a photo almost impossible!





















Such a fun weekend!
Chicago Antique Show coming up next...

~ huger embroidery


Have been eyeing some beautiful monograms recently at Huger Embroidery...

Owner, Sarah Gibson Wiley comes from an unusually talented line-up of individuals you could say...

Sarah's mother is an artist, her grandmother a sculptor. Her great-grandfather was Charles Dana Gibson, creator of the Gibson Girl in the 1890s! Her great aunt was a tastemaker and owner of Colefax and Fowler. And Dana Gibson? Her sister! I adore Dana's collection of fabrics, lighting and home accessories. Whew!

Not only does Sarah do custom monograms, she has embroidered just about anything you can think of! She has commemorated many special memories for clients, including these fabulous custom room vignettes...

Special memories are preserved by a special process of embroidering designs onto linens, pillows and other entertaining and keepsake pieces. It may be a family pet, a family home or room, a child's artwork, or any special memory...

What a darling baby gift!



Really love this monogrammed stationery!

 And these gorgeous monogrammed towels!


The possibilities are endless!





I am happy to have Huger Embroidery as a sponsor!
Isn't she darling?
