In case you haven't checked it out yet, I wanted to share with you a few favored highlights from Rue's anniversary issue...
Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge was featured in this issue's Blogger Side-by-Side. Love! This is my favorite feature in Rue. I love reading the interviews with featured bloggers and seeing their darling illustrated selves!
I'm smitten with this room. The mix of patterns! The bright colors! The furniture arrangement!
This spread is amazing. So glittery. So romantic. I'm swooning.
This caught my eye because I'm absolutely obsessed with the Venus de Milo. How gorgeous?!
ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.
Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character. Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together. Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
