I’m in!

It’s official – I get to go shopping with Eddie Ross! September is going to be the BEST month ever!!!

Pick Me (and Julia!) Eddie!
April 22, 2009

I have a mother and a fiance who are going to say WHAT? when they find out that the Saturday before the wedding  I’ve RSVPed to go shopping with Eddie Ross at the DC Big Flea.  The timing  is not perfect, but Eddie’s style is, and I think it a bigger risk to not spend the weekend before the nupts combing for treasures with someone like Eddie.   I just know that if he chooses Julia (mom-to-be and super savy decorator) and me that he could help us find accessories to stage the biggest events in our respective worlds to date …a wedding and a nursey.  Not to mention….we’re a pretty good time!

Dear Eddie,

Would it help if I told you that my wedding dress can be found in the Spring 2009 Martha Stewart Weddings??  Would you be more inclined to choose me if I told you that for my wedding breakfast, to be held in the dining room of an old Virginia  manor house, my mother is driving up from Tennessee  iron stone pitchers from her collection to place, filled with flowers, inside  built-in cabinets, circa 1814???  During the reception, I’m serving grilled veggies atop an antique window!  And, I didn’t want it to come to this, but….you did promise.

See you 9.19!

Love,

I Do Declare

P.S.

May I register at your Etsy store?

Lucketts Design House

Hold on to your unemployment checks because the folks at Lucketts Store are having a showcase weekend in their Designs House. I know I toss around the word fabulous a lot, but the Design House is FAB.U.LOUS. I mean it.  Everything about it. If I could choose any structure, anywhere, to call my home, it’d be this house – even without its fabulous furnishings (I might paint the front porch, but still, I LOVE IT).  I love the architecture of this house (and the fact that they hand you wine when you walk in the door to sip while you shop isn’t bad either…)is incredible; the amazing accessories and furniture it’s stocked with makes it even more intoxicating.  I am serious when I say I dream about living here.  I have.

Look for me there on Sunday, resisting the urge to buy.
