LOL. Even before I read your comment on the one photo I thought how much that reminded me of Rue! I love decorating books!
And speaking of decor, I've opened an Etsy shop with European treasures. Come have a peek!

Gaston Studio said...

Rue also popped into my mind when I saw the pics of the chairs. What great finds you have there. I especially love the glass doorknob idea.

Stacey said...

Those do look like great books. I just LOVE decorating books. My friends and family even give them to me as gifts for birthdays and things. :) Some of them I look at and realize that they are not even necessarily in style anymore...but I still enjoy them. Tuesday Morning has some really pretty ones sometimes for cheap.

So glad to hear from you this fine Palm Sunday.
