Unless you’ve been living under an ugly gray scaly rock this past year, you know that blue and white, as a throw-back color combo focal point, is the most important element of interior style these days.
Ticking, ikat, traditional china patterns, modernly-incorporated geometric fabrics… they’re being whored out like a bottle of Southern Comfort at a high school party.
AND speaking of the South, we must give credit where credit is due. No one can do blue and white like a classy Southern woman, and Mamma Sally has been classin’ it up blue and white style since the 70′s.
PS – do yourself a favor and reward your mouth with the most delicious apperitivo ever. Whole Wheat Cracker + Rolling Stone Chevre (Goats Cheese) + fresh sliced figs + fresh basil leaf. Consume. Repeat. You’ll thank me for it.

And as quickly as they arrived – they were gone again. 14 day rolls. Travel and staging days not included. No cell service.
That means I’ve got all the time in the world for blog/furniture construction and part-time job hunting while still leaving room for some inevitable self-indulgent sulking. What’s that they say about pain and suffering being conducive to creativity? Pshhh. I see your pain and suffering and raise you dating an Idaho City Hot Shot Firefighter during their 5 month unpredictable fire season. There better be a Caribbean vacation at the end of this experience. Or at least foot massages. On demand.
