A lovely post by a fellow designer!


 Yesterday,  I was stunned when I received a post by my new friend, Julie of TG Interiors!

She wrote me to ask if she could speak to me about how I started my career;

and she wanted to see if had had advice for young people

thinking about a design career!

She lives nearby, and I invited her to lunch and we spent a nice afternoon chatting about our business!

I was so touched, I cannot tell you by this beautiful  and generous post!

I was touched, and thrilled and surprised!   You will see why!

Thank you , Julie, from the bottom of my heart!

    Julie’s a “keepah”, as they would say here in New England. You are, too! I’m proud to call you both friends!

    I so enjoyed the wonderful article about you, your home and family, and your business. I loved learning so many new things and seeing all the wonderful photos. I too am impressed by your mother and the black tie dinners for 12 every Friday night. Your childhood must have been magical.

    Julie did a wonderful job and I’m sure she had a fabulous day interviewing you.
