I love patterns too, and textures, so I love this. I think that if you or Mark made the shrimp, we need the recipe please!!

KRISTIN — It's actually scallops. It was good but I thought it overwhelmed the scallops a bit. I bet it would not do that as much if one used shrimp. NYT Melissa Clark recipe from August.


Excellent patterns! The soup looks delicious, so does desert. And I love the box with vintage ornaments!

Linda Brazill

CHAVLI — Thanks. I love NYT recipes and am always trying them. This one looks better than it tasted; good but not great. As for ornaments, I am lucky enough that I still have a few from my maternal grandparents. My dad was born on Christmas Eve and one of my sisters on Christmas Day, so it is a big holiday in our family.

That book was used as a sort of badge of belonging by the architects I used to work with. They had it on their desks, or worked the title into conversation. They were annoying and thus I avoided the book. Perhaps it's time to revisit that. I love your patterns.

Linda Brazill

DANGER — Ha! I can totally imagine that. I think it was a cult book in general. I remember seeing some houses that used some of the concepts which were actually rather Arts and Craftsy with nooks and crannies, a mix of high and low ceilings etc. Very inviting.


I love this. I also love pattern, especially in home textiles and clothing. I often have to remind myself that it’s good to have solid colored pieces to “go with” everything, but it takes discipline to put down the patterned choice and buy the one-color item. Ha!


It's a good time of year to see patterns when the branches are laid bare by the cold. It took me a moment to put the two powdered sugar patterns together as a set.


I really like this. I'm drawn to your white dish pattern. The Christmas ornaments are lovely!
