I’ve had these photos on my desktop all afternoon. Discovered via the lovely Jane at Ill Seen, Ill Said. I really love spool chairs and I love this version with stripes. I keep seeing spool chairs over and over. I gotta get one!
I also want a ticking stripe sofa. My first love appeared in domino in a camel back version. Oh and check out the girly flower chair in the back of the room. The upholstery reminds of the Rose Tarlow floral I feel in love with a few months ago. Adding a pretty floral chair to my list!
Two more. A gorgeous marble bathroom from the same house in East Hampton. So fancy! And below a traditional four-drawer dresser. Totally my style. Would love one for every room in my house.

Greg told me not to write another post about the garden. I know it’s kinda boring but that this is my life right now. Working and gardening. What I’ve learned: Don’t buy 2 yards of mulch if you have an urban size garden. I’ve mulched my house, two neighbors gardens, and an island in the middle of the street…we still have a pile. Now what? I guess I put up a free mulch sign?
I learned this week not to cut your lupine. Let it go to seed if you want it to come back and spread. Same with the foxglove. We’ll have to wait till next spring to see if that trick worked.
My double rose peony poppies are coming up. I think I have three plants? They seem to coming along. I remember reading on the packet that they may not bloom the first year. Again, we’ll have to be patient and wait and see.
Also, my iris. Looks happy and it’s growing well. But no flowers. What’s up? My mom said I may have planted it too deep. I gave the plant a tug this morning and exposed the rhizomes. I removed the mulch from around the plant because the moisture can make the rhizomes rot. Let me know if you know any good iris flowering tips.
Besides that the garden is coming along well. I outlined the new back shade garden in stones. This coming weekend the stone will get replaced with cobblestones. Using small stones made it easy to play around with the curve.
Note to self: I need to find more flowers that bloom in May. I would love to do some more allium in different sizes. That’s the report from the garden. I’ll be out on the corner pimping the mulch till sunset.
