Geez.

How do you do this?

Take all these textures and fabrics and sheens and make them come together into a beautiful decorating style.

What an absolutely lovely link to Alphabe-Thursday's Summer School.

When I become rich (yea...ummm.... don't be holding your breath, though...) will you come and decorate for me?

I love the dried pomegranate topiary. I can get fruit all over the place here. I may have to give this a try.

Thank you for linking!
