Just like I did about this time a year ago, I decided to share with you some images I photographed on the Fire Island community of Saltaire while doing research for The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details.
Mary-Ellen Weinrib, a home stylist who has spent her summers on Saltaire for more than 20 year, took me on a tour of her home and I snapped away inspiration that I haven't shown anyone until now -- a framed poppy canvas casually leaned on the mantle of a weathered fireplace, an intimate view through a painted screen door into a crisp-white guest room, or even the
lovely, washed-out family photographs that accentuate the setting of a brilliant sun porch.
It's because of beautiful places like these that Mary-Ellen shared with me and gracious supporters like you that The Find is an enduring reality. And like I've told you before, if you purchase a copy of The Find, let me know, and I'll gladly send you a personalized bookplate.
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
