Painted Books & More from Boston's Hudson

Today I'm blogging from the gorgeous kitchen of Debra of 5th and State as preparations are being made for tonight's WOW event. Can't wait to show you pics of her AGA cooker. I just visited her fabulous store, Scentimental Gardens in Geneva, Il, and am excited to post pictures of it when I get back to Washington. In the meantime, here are images from my visit last week to a favorite Boston store, Hudson.


Loved this alternative to covering books in paper - paint them instead!

Back in 2008 when I visited they had a huge collage wall of vintage letters and photos (see here). The display is now gone but here are some select pieces enlarged and framed.



Did you know Albert & Dash makes terrific, reasonably priced throws? I didn't until I saw these.

I'm smitten with all of it. But, really, really love those framed pieces. Hope you had a great day in Chicago!

What a great store! I'm loving that putty and brown ikat settee...what a striking fabric! I'm so going to steal the idea of the painted books. How creative is that...and easy!
Feeling some creativity here.
