A loose end, and an award

I have been asked how I keep track of all the tearsheets (and sources!) that I pull from magazines, and while I have no real system, it helps that I tend to recognize the shape of the page and the font of the page numbers to identify the magazine from whence they came.  Usually I can find what I'm looking for.  But sometimes not.  (Anyone have a good secret they want to share?)  A long time ago, I blogged about choosing curtains for the dining room, and the way my preference was wavering between a parisian pleat and a more structured (and more formal) box pleat, only I couldn't find the Domino image I had in mind for the box pleat.

Well, all these months later, I found the picture.  Here it is.

Isn't it lovely?  I'm still digging the lavendar and sort of pale silver palette, the scale of the pattern on that rug, and the texture and detail in that Moroccan wedding blanket on the sofa.  Also, Breakfast at Toast just did a round up of the English rolled-arm sofa, here, and it's feeling fresh (and classic) to me.

And while all this may not make for the most interesting blog post, I have to say I feel pretty satisfied.  You may think it's crazy, but it was really bugging me that I referred to that image here and then never posted it.

Also, a big thank you to Susan at Project Balancing act for awarding me the Kreativ Blogger award!

This award comes with the mandate that you get to know me a little better.  I've already posted my "seven things you don't know about me", here, and while I could come up with seven more they would likely try your patience more than this post.  Instead of that, you should go check out Susan's blog, here.  Thanks for the shout out!
