I've Been Tagged

My glamorous blog friend in Hollywood, Lisa Borgnes Giramonti, recently nominated mine as one of her favorite blogs and I'm flattered because she has great taste! See for yourself at her blog A Bloomsbury Life. When you are nominated, the rule is to tell ten things about yourself, and nominate your favorite blogs. Since my blog is about beautiful things, I thought I would list some of my favorites:

Flowers, everywhere and always. (West 12th Street)

Flea market finds.

The work of the mad genius designer John Galliano, whose muse is "the impoverished heiress on the run." (Spring 2010 collection, photo from

Running/exercise/yoga/the gym. (the sun deck of the Chelsea Piers on the Hudson River)

The power of New York City

and the bucolic peace of upstate New York, where I am from.
(a summer concert in Herkimer)

The work of Belgian designer Dries Van Noten - quirky and completely cool.
(Spring 2010 collection, photo from

The paintings of John Singer Sargent. Here we have the Sitwell family, including little Edith in red.

Paris, eternally medieval.

The pleasures of a good book

and, one more, making a beautiful thing

where there wasn't a beautiful thing.
That was fun, thanks Lisa!

Now, I nominate (drum roll, please) some beautiful blogs:
The Aesthete's Lament
What I Saw Today
The Errant Aesthete
A Continuous Lean
Fine and Dandy Shop
Pigtown Design
Mr. Peacock
Easy & Elegant Life

Amen on the Errant Aesthete! I'm a fan, too!

The romantic query letter and the happy-ever-after said...

Your friend as the right of it for after following the links it's easy to see that you are the fairest of them all.
All the very best and a lovely week.

Thank you very much for the nod. I'm finally coming up for air and will post forthwith!


Errant Aesthete said...


I am honored and so dismally late on learning of this. Who was the actress who was in the loo when her name was read at the Academy Awards?

In any event, thank you. It is a real pleasure to be in such esteemed company.
