Kathryn Ireland - 1, Reese Witherspoon - 0

So this is how I spend my time some days ... completely racking my brain to remember something. Is it because I am getting OLDER?  Or is it because my mind is full of so many images ... 

I am inundated by all my favorite blogs and my favorite magazines ... I try to remember where I see things, sometimes I rip out pages.  But that makes me mad because then I have a stack of pages and then I flip through old favorites and they are half empty.

Organization is something I am desperately trying to work on this year.  It is not going very well.

I was reading my ED and saw this room in Reese's house in Ojai.  Oh, I Iove this room, I am thinking, hmmm.  Something is familiar ... Have I been invited to Reese's home and enjoyed a glass of wine here.  Clearly, NO!  Reese should invite me ... but hasn't.  

But the nagging.  I KNOW this room ... how do I KNOW this room?

BECAUSE!!!  Kathryn Ireland used to live in this house and this is the way the room looked when I first fell in love.  Now I will say that the painting is not my fave.  It is fine, I am just not a big southwestern fan. Still, Ireland wins this round.  I love the color warmth!  

The Room drew me IN.

So. Far. IN. That in my little brain, I think I have actually BEEN there!!  

Kids started school yesterday ... I am secretly reveling in the silence of the house.  Give me a week or two ... then I'll want their noise back!!  




  1. I like Reese's room best, too. Enjoy having the house to yourself. Wish you could meet me at Lucketts Saturday!

  2. It does drive you crazy when you see a space/room that looks so familiar. This has happened to me a few times and I go nuts until I figure it out....Another thing that makes me go crazy is when a room is set up for a photo shoot with different accessories and arrangements (even different furniture) and you are looking at the same room, same house, and the same issue! I realize it's done for the room to look perfect, and it's done all the time. It takes just a few minutes to figure it out...but when I do, I feel so elated that I am not going nuts!
    What you see is not always the way it really is in this world!

  3. I can't wait until my house is silent during the day. I was just telling someone the other day that I saw something on line. When they asked me to send them the link, I could not remember where I saw it. Hate that.
