my sister's place

{click on image to see better}

my sister has the most beautiful home. i love it there. it is truly a sanctuary whenever i visit. i took hundreds of pictures last time i was there. i won't post them all at once. instead i'll post them from time to time and tag them "my sister's place".

this is a shot of my necklace hanging on her lamp with the vintage shade i found for her years ago. much much more will be to come. her place should be in a magazine. and i feel lucky to be part of the way it is designed/decorated. she lets me use my creativity and interior design aspirations as an influence on her decor. but most of it stems from her own great sense of style.

i truly love it there. i never want to leave when i'm there. my sister's place posts will be my way to be there virtually––even when i'm not able to be there physically.

It sounds like a wonderful sancutary, which we all need. I can't wait for more installments:).

you captured it so lovingly in your photo and the words...how far away do you live from each other?

elk, we are only an hour apart, thankfully. i don't think i would like it if we lived any farther apart. :)

Wow your sister’s place is gorgeous. I’d love to have a house like that and I can see why you never want to leave.

I look forward to seeing more of her place.
