It was a good mail day.
I received BOTH
THE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT HOME
THIS SIDE OF PARADISE
(the stunning Penguin Classics version).
They came just in time, 'cause I've been under the weather the past few days and needed something to curl up with (well, besides my hubby and dog. They are pretty fun to curl up with...).
My favorite quote thus far from "The Perfectly Imperfect Home" is from the ever fabulous
Elsie de Wolfe:
"What is the goal? A house that is like the life that goes with it,
a house that gives us beauty as we understand it--
and beauty of a nobler kind that we may grow to understand."
