Exciting News!
Book signings added..
"Come ye all collectors of stuff and we shall share our glorious pain of desire for too many things!"~Mary Randolph Carter

For those of you unfamiliar with Carter, she is an icon and Creative Director for Ralph Lauren...and a woman who knows exactly who she is, and what she likes!
Carter is also an author of many books such as...
"American Junk","A Perfectly Kept House Is The Sign Of A Misspent Life" and "For The Love Of Old" as well as other delightful, inspiring reads.

Her newest book is released May 6, 2014 and features the homes and collections of people who just love "stuff"...and who embody the philosophy that 
~if it has a place in your heart, it has a place in your home~

Carter also collaborated with her son (also) Carter (an accomplished photographer with Ralph Lauren) on this body of work.
My home/farmette/studio is featured among the pages...24 to be exact!
I was one lucky ducky to get a sneak peek and can honestly attest that this is one book you will want~need in your collection!

This is such fabulous news Jennifer! I am thrilled for you! And me, for I get to buy the book and see your lovely farm and gorgeous collections. I wish I lived closer to take in a signing. How true… “if it has a place in your heart, it has a place in your home”!

Oh, Jenn! Thank goodness our friend Stephanie Lloyd knew we were "peas in a pod!" Your home, your world of art, beauty, nature and utility, created out of a love of the past rooted in the present was such an inspiration to visit and capture in our new book--Never Stop To Think...Do I Have A Place For This?

Look forward to our book celebrations to come!!!

never stop to think....Carter
