SPECIAL EDITION- WHAT I WANT- PART 1

i tell you it has killed me that i haven’t been to nyc this past week to see the bunny mellon interiors exhibit at sotheby’s, i would do anything…. however, there is too much going on to get away, and at least i got to see the masterworks exhibit a few weeks ago….

ever since i’ve gotten my exhibition catalogs i’ve been dreaming, wishing, wanting and yes, drooling! session one, lots 268-506, all from oak spring farm, are being auctioned off in a few days….i have a list of what want, i actually just filled out my absentee bidding form today, we’ll see…

here are a few of my favorite things from session one, to be honest i’d be happy to own anything of bunny mellons- her taste, style and restraint was everything!
