Me Too, Candice Bergen

I wish I knew more about this print. Brandon’s mom gave it to us a few days ago. It belonged to his grandmother, who apparently bought it from a store where it was on display and not actually for sale. A quick search attributed the quote to Candice Bergen, but I don’t know the year or context. It’s a great sentiment though, wouldn’t you agree?

I like houses to be cozy, comfortable and personal. Not cluttered, but filled with interesting objects and toys and as many jokes as I can get away with.
– Candice Bergen

    Totally agree! And here’s a good place to mention I was named after her.

    Also, I should say that I learned to not decorate my home for the sake of pretty. Everything flows and makes sense; but every little thing has a story. That’s what I love most about my space.

      You can probably approximate the look with Clarendon. And I know, I need to find time for the basement!
