Pillows at Giannetti Home
while leaving Los Angeles International Airport:
Husband: "Why were you late picking me up?"
Me: "Sorry. I stopped at Brooke's from Velvet and Linen shop on San Vincente since I was up here."
Me: "Brooke Giannetti. The blogger who makes everyone else look like a slacker. Great mom, wife, interior designer, store owner, philanthropist, book writer, chicken farmer..."
Husband: "... a blogger Idol?"
Me: "She sent me an encouraging email when I felt like quitting the blog in the beginning."
Husband: "Like 'Martha Stewart'? Well, then I guess that's OK you left your poor husband waiting at the curb."
Earlier At Giannetti Home:
"Hi. I am a fan of Brooke's blog. I just mentioned her on
my famous Joy of Doing Laundry Post. Here's my card.
Thanks for the silver spoon ornament that I won last Christmas."
"She's not here right now. They are doing the home tour installation to benefit the Gilt and Ashton Kutcher for the DNA Foundation."
Me: "Oh, that's right. I knew that.
(to inner self: that's creepy, you haven't even met Brooke personally, oh well). Mind if I take some photos?"
Kelly: "Go right ahead. Want a tour?"

The design space is to the right of the amazing bird cage.
There was a beautiful sapphire blue roll of Fortuny fabric on one of the desks.
May I purchase this heavenly smelling candle, please?
I'm in a hurry but, hopefully, I'll catch all green lights."
