Why Do I Do What I Do?

This morning's post is going to have to be a quick one.  We are bracing for the arrival of Hurricane (or Tropical Storm) Hermine today here in South Carolina and I am about to begin my 90 minute trek to Charleston.  I wanted to share a quick post that I saw on Instagram from Southern Living magazine with a quote by the late, great Albert Hadley, whom I had the privilege  of meeting when I was involved in one of the charities he began  in Southport CT called "Rooms With A View".  

"Decorating is not about making stage sets, it's not about making pretty pictures for the magazines; it's really about creating a quality of life, a beauty that nourishes the soul." — Albert Hadley

He summed it up perfectly.  That is why I love doing what I do. I hope you all have a restful, safe weekend.


Happy Friday!
