For the Love of Books!

Hope everyone had a good weekend! It was gloriously rainy and cold in Los Angeles so I was forced to be inside getting my act together.

Good Friends and End Table Makeovers

But, honestly, I am surrounded by an incredible group of friends here. Tom C and his beautiful wife Brooke (really beautiful – I don’t want to be sexist here so I’ll say… Continue reading Good Friends and End Table Makeovers
