'Sir, I exist!'
'However,' replied the universe,
'The fact has not created in me
a sense of obligation.'"

I love my tea. Always have. I prefer english breakfast with a bit of skim milk and splenda. Even more, I love my tea in adorable homes (mugs) like these.

Two lovely guest bedrooms. Both dominated by whites and soft blues. And both with a center nightstand. Which do you prefer? I lean towards the first, though I love the slipcovered chairs at the foot of the beds in the second.

Just finished Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray and I highly recommend it. Wilde writes with wit and humor and is a pleasure to read. The novel is full of memorable quotes...

I have always enjoyed well organized desks and spaces. Places with order and purpose that are at the same time beautiful.
Notice the gold chair in images 3 and 4 -- (a favorite chair of mine) works amazingly well in both a more old world traditional and a cleaner romantic space.
