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 Style.com)
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 Men.style.com)
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
Easy & Elegant Life
