Connectedness

I have so enjoyed reading the comments to my last post, I can get a real insight into my blogging friends’ quirks! I enjoyed making my own list, it was a relaxation while my daytime mind is whirring like an old fan.

from White Flower Farmhouse in Peconic, NY


It is plain I have not been pouring my heart out to blogworld recently. I am gearing up for New York – just cut the last of my samples bar the bedskirt: wonderful Lori is lending me a bed and accessories and bedskirts have to have the exactly correct drop. White Flower Farmhouse is on Long Island, so I will visit next week for the first time and I can’t wait, since I have loved Lori’s creativity and discerning eye ever since I found her blog.

This is also the time of year when I delight in having visitors to stay – my favorite Florida socialite and her husband, then my ‘best friend’ since school – wouldn’t it be wonderful if my sister would hop over! Plenty of other friends who are just dropping in, Tricia George to discuss a secret project, Herb and Barbara over from Bath in Somerset, and maybe I can persuade Leo on his way from the mines of Western Australia to Gothenburg.

I am planning a little frivolity too, going into San Francisco, and I might drop into Barneys to smell Frederic Malle’s Coffee Society candle, tracking down the definitive Harris Tweed jacket (!), MoMa… Life is beautiful.

  1. So nice to hear your plans to come to NY. I think you really will fall for LI — the east end is unique and so beautiful (at least after the traffic jams clear). Hope you have great success with the collection — it’s the place to show! Those ladies love linens there. Will hope to see pix! Jane F

    Tricia doesn’t like writing about past endeavors – we actually bought land and a beach in Long Island near Greenport, around ’81. Oh no you can’t buy a beach. Yes we did, it was four acres of land and two were underwater – hence our very own LI beach. In winter it was covered in ice.

    “Coffee Society Candle”! Love that. I once got a sample bottle of Malle’s “Lipstick Rose” at a little perfume shop on Elizabeth Street (London), – probably the most feminine scent ever…

    Ah NY, always exciting! Have a lovely trip. x
