When you go to an estate sale in LA, you never know whose it might be. So you can imagine how surprised I was to find myself in the home of Kitty Bartholomew, famed decorator and HGTV star, as she was selling off a bit of her fabulous fare in preparation for a move to a new home.
As she moved from room to room, she pointed out items that were made for "certain" celebrities -- names all to big to be revealed here. But I did get a good look at a chair that she made on the Oprah show out of belts all latched together to cover the seat. And then there's the fabulous valance crafted out of men's ties.
