These images of Detroit — past and present mashed together — are fascinating.
Behold! The power of knowing how to make clothes work for your body.
Such a sweet video. Oh, how I want to go to Paris.
The secret to Tina Fey’s success? Say yes, and figure it out later. (I’ve done that a lot lately — it works.)
Sing it with me now! “I will be right here, waiting for you…”
Consider this my take on the Golden Globes’ best-dressed list. (Plus, inspired looks that actually work for real life!)
Here’s how to make your plain doors look a whole lot better.
Neon is best in teeny tiny doses.
Gorgeous brass lamps. I’ve been considering replacing the old $10 floor lamp in the library with this cantilevered one, but I haven’t decided if the other one bothers me enough to swap it out.

I’ve been to Paris several times, and it’s always beautiful, magical, and fun. I can’t wait to go back again!

And Paris is under the snow tonight. Which not very often even in winter.
Even more dreamy.
Bonsoir from Paris.

Thanks for the link to the photos of Detroit! I live in outer metro-Detroit so it was great to see them. Amazing project.

Nicole, the Crate and Barrel outlet in Naperville has that red dining table you said you wanted for $133 today. There’s only one. Has some minor damage, but I thought you might want to know anyway.

Oh, thanks! I’m happy with mine now that we have different chairs though.

My grandparents lived in Detroit for over 50 years. It always saddened me to see how my favorite memories of the city were now layered with trash and burned out homes. It was such a beautiful city at one time.

I can’t believe the before and after photos of the schools and other buildings in Detroit! That was a very powerful website, and thank you for sharing. I am always drawn to historical photography because I love seeing what a space used to be and how far it has come/gone since.
