I Covet This

This may be the most wonderful campaign chest I've ever seen. It was once owned by Gloria Swanson and is now in the home of landscape designer Joseph Cornetta. The bedroom is pretty spectacular too. (photography by Peter Murdock) For more images go to Hamptons Cottages & Gardens here.

BTW, is it really September already? rrrrr! Next post - a review of all the stuff I bought & won (thank you Under Spanish Moss) this summer

I'm coveting the mirror over the bed!
I am not sure how it can be September either. Honestly I am still back in March. Did we have a summer - yikes!

Oh, you just gave me the best idea! We have an old chest just like that and I can paint it something wonderful. It is holding our DVD and it should certainly look better. It will take me all weekend to pick a colour but I am so glad I popped in today. Happy weekend. XO

I can't image running my hands on the inside of drawers Gloria Swanson did, how wonderful.

We adore the color of the chest. It looks great in the space. We can't wait to see how you used the bee skeps. Hope you are enjoying them. Yes, September already! Where has the year gone?

The mirror! love it.

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog! i loved what you said. I agree with you - I think I am a layered, cluttered person even though I don't want to be!!! I'm a cluttered person trapped in a streamlined body. except, in reality, that's not right either~ i'm a thin person trapped in a fat body. oy. ok. i'm losing it.
