Madeleine Castaing, and Emily returns

I am so happy friend and fellow blogging wonder Emily Eerdmans is back! Blogging that is-
Little does she need the exercise in wordsmithing. Her books-5 of them: Classic English Design and Antiques, Regency Redux, The World of Madeleine Castaing, Mario Buatta: Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration-with the "Prince" himself, and her newest, Wendell Castle: A Catalogue Raisonné-to be released in July-give her all the workout she needs.
But, I'll not question it-I'll just enjoy it.

 read Emily's latest posting here.

 Her Castaing book-the definitive one on the grande dame-and the first-is my favorite. It's spellbinding. Castaing is such a giving subject-and cause for my own (as always) whimsical meanderings.
This weekend, it just happens to be the lady's summer wardrobe for her country house Lèves.

  2. Gaye I am so thrilled to see Emily appear in our world once again. I adore her book on Castaing, it is one of my favorites and I was fortunate to meet Emily at her book signing here in Kansas City.
