Today was move-in day at my new (small) location in West Hollywood. I was a dealer at "Little Paris" for several years before I moved to Pasadena in 2009. And I am happy to be back. I have so many friends in this area of Los Angeles and they are welcoming me with open arms--I'm very grateful. One of my best buddies is Carlos (Carlos Castaneda Antiques) who also co-designs my lighting-- and he came running in when he heard that I had arrived with Roberto.
It was a busy day as some of my inventory went to Little Paris and some went to Pasadena. Here are just a couple of shots of my initial set up at Little Paris--still have to bring art, the Chinese horseshoes chairs, etc.
It's looking rather bare--but it will soon fill up with details--art makes a huge difference. I took the Fortuny Pillows to Pasadena; perhaps I'll bring some over here next week.
I'm trying to come up with a point of view for today, but my brain is a little slow at the moment. But if I really dwell on the gifts of today, my point of view would be simple amazement at how easy life is becoming as I allow myself to let go of controlling all of the details. If you were to have told me a month ago that I would be returning to my old haunt, I would have said you were absolutely out of your mind!!--But here I am and almost all settled in without even a care in the world.
It's time to put the lights out--busy day and another one tomorrow.
Blessing for the day. Jones is going to a new groomer tomorrow--I think he'll feel better once he is all handsome again.
