On The Calendar For The Week Ahead
As those of you who know me or have read my "mini bio" in the column on the right, you know I've been a writer of fashion, design, lifestyle, decoration, and all that "light stuff" as someone once remarked. But I have also been an editor, coming up with story ideas and then asking creative, exceptional individuals to execute my nascent notions any way they would like, by applying their unique twists and talents on the themes.
With few exceptions -- when I step in in my original role -- the month of December will be filled with cadeaux from brillliant bloggers who graciously agreed to contribute to our December lifestyle "magazine".
Cette semaine is devoted to holiday decorating created just for us by extraordinary interior designers. Since we need time to absorb, learn and replicate their ideas, it seemed only logical to start the series with them.
Speaking of extraordinary interior designers, the drawing for "French Impressions" by Betty Lou Phillips, will be announced this week. If you haven't told me if you would like to be included, you have until Tuesday. Imagine having her book for Christmas? As it happens, you will find gorgeous holiday decorating ideas inside -- the gift that keeps on giving.
