Bedrooms & Baths

Hey there…check out my recent piece in Bedrooms & Baths magazine!  This will be on newsstands for three months, folks! And I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.

Huge thanks once again to Jacqueline de Montravel at Beckett Media and of course, Lynn Goldfinger of Paris Hotel Boutique. What a lovely piece, ladies. We should all be proud!

The article features Lynn’s beautiful home and is all about Hotel Silver–with ideas on how to decorate with it, care for it, and enjoy it’s luster through the years.




#549: Ring Boxes

Lynn’s collection of antique ring boxes. Not for sale.

Second Chance, part two

Second Chance, part one

Second Chance, on the Ingrimstraße, is one of my favorite shops in Heidelberg.

I always find interesting bits and bobs…

Baubles and trinkets…

Doo-dads and bric-a-brac.

A lot of people may not like the idea of buying used or old things…

But I say…

Some things get better with time.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

And, they certainly don’t make them like they used too.

Choose whichever idiom you like…

Either way, I find it a lot more gratifying to purchase something that can be re-purposed for another use…

Something with a history and a soul…

That wasn’t made in a factory in China.

So, in honor of second chances everywhere, I decided to photograph all of these wonderful treasures and share them with you!

By the way, this is just a glimpse.  As usual, there are more to come.
