Install has begun at 77 H Street NW! This is such an exciting time in the design process. The design ideas and concepts have been finalized and approved. Measurements and budgets have been quadrupled checked. Purchasing has been done. Deliveries and inspection of items are happening quickly and the install of the design is upon us! A great location in Downtown DC: right next to Gonzaga, down the street and to the left is Georgetown University Law Center and to the right Union Station! More to come!

Hustle and bustle ! No time to do everything ! Here is a helpful cooking tip for you ! Just kidding. I have no idea how to cook; other than the basic of basics. Tonight I had popcorn for dessert. It was delicious. I recommend popcorn. I'm going to stick with my day jobs: designing for hospitality and the home, painting oil portraits, and framing. And yes, the counter tops in my kitchen are marble. I will have to honor the marble and learn how to cook. Happy Thanksgiving Eve 2017!
Someone in my (very large McCooey Magnier Fagan Henderson) family has already purchased a Christmas tree! What? It’s a tabletop Christmas tree but nonetheless! My first thought was: “What! It’s too soon! We haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet!” ; a reaction anyone who was a child growing up on the east coast mid-century would have. But then, on second thought, I realized what a great idea this actually really is. I mean, I’ve already started listening to A Charlie Brown Christmas, so why not begin decorating to accompany it? Upon further thought, I appreciated the idea because to buy a tabletop Christmas tree now will eliminate a rushed experience in a mere week and will bring all the holidays into view (and scent) right away to enjoy. So I went to a few places where I like to shop online that sell live (not fake, but beware some are an arrangement of boughs) tabletop Christmas trees to share with you. I’m putting my order in now ;) Gobble Gobble !
Jackson & Perkins. They have been around a long time; since 1872 to be exact. Their mail-order business got started from their exhibit at the 1939 World's Fair in New York. Richard loved that World’s Fair and remembered it. We enjoyed experiencing an original advertising poster from the Fair; proudly framed and displayed in our home in Georgetown. Maybe that’s why he liked ordering from them. Anyway you can own your very own live spruce tree, decorated and ready to enjoy.
