living with the things we love







i received this book as a gift from our real estate agent after i referred a co-worker to him. he is an amazing guy and with all the time we spent with him...well, we consider him sf family. (props to you jay m).

this is one of those books that you tend to look at over and over again....it actually "lives" on the kitchen table and has perched itself there for over a month now. it is my escape from the chaos of everyday life.....and i must pick it up 3 or 4 times a week when i need that mindless, gazing fix. it works every time...totally transports me into her world and love for textures, prints, fonts and basically all things old.

sibella court, the author of the book, tugged at my heart strings with her personal story and as you walk through her book, you immediately realize her gift of making old feel new and fresh.
