Versace, Draper, and Hermes

Versace, Draper, and Hermes.  Yes, I combined all of them and it worked.
Ever since I saw this image with the stacked Hermes boxes, I was on the hunt for some.


My search was over when I purchased many Hermes scarf boxes from a fellow vendor.  
Here's how I pulled it all together.

I've had this framed Versace poster for many years.
  And, like all the accessories in my home it traveled from the living room, to the kitchen where it spent many years, and now to my family room.  One thing that always makes traveling possible is that I have the color black in most rooms in my home.

The poster may have found its forever home above my "Dorothy Draper" dresser.
(If there ever is a forever home around here.)

To the top of the dresser I added a  bejeweled demijohn that traveled here from the screened porch.

And now my latest favorite find, the Hermes scarf box.

And of course I purchased more than one so I stacked them and used them as risers.

To top them off, a spikey sphere.

I think that the orange boxes add just the right pop of color to so much black.

When I get a minute to take more photos I'll share where I put the rest of the boxes.

Plaid makes me think of Ralph Lauren, horses, all things preppy, Pendleton blankets, Christmas, and of course Outlander.  But most of all when I see plaid in clothing and design, I think of Fall.
For me, plaid is the perfect design accessory as the weather cools.

Do you associate plaid with the Fall and the cooler weather?

Are You a Gypsy?

This is for all of you out there who collect or hoard and have basements and garages teeming with stuff---
and you know who you are.  And I know who you are too.  

We sometimes call ourselves hoarders, or pack rats, or for all my colleagues out there---
vintage vendors.
 I think a much kinder label for us would be gypsy.  I had to share these images.  
They so look like something that would happen to me if I had to leave home suddenly.

I have to say though that my means of transportation wouldn't be quite so classy.  
 I'd be packing up my rusty van.  (It could hold more then these cars anyway.)
Fess up.  Are you a gypsy?  Where do you store your stash?


I know I've shared these before but they're so spot on AND they make me smile.
It's nice to know that there are others out there just like you.

I've written about my beast of a van and my secret vintage gypsy life before here.
