A little Distraction…?

     Many of us are probably still glued to the news after what happened and could use a little distraction. I am still trying to come to grips with the shooting that took place yesterday in Newtown, Ct.  I was brought to tears like so many of you I’m sure. Just last school year, I was teaching 2nd grade at an Elementary school; the thought of this happening to any of them is unfathomable. Yet, it did happen. in. Newtown. I am at a loss for words and can lean only on my belief in prayers and its power to heal…
     This beautiful home is actually located in New England and was designed by the talented Lynne Scalo who coincidentally  is a Connecticut based designer. “Design is a very personal process that evolves by really getting to know how a person lives and wants to live.’’ says Scalo. Her design of this New England home infuses modern with traditional effortlessly. Enjoy…


very Mad Men-esque, isn’t it?

Squeeze your loved ones, love them, and have a weekend filled with laughter and joy. Personally, I am going to try and avoid the news, spend quality time with my boys and count my blessings! XX



  1. Precious friend and colleague in the art of teaching,

    I just had the most darling second grade class the other day that I taught for two days in a row. All I wanted to do last night was to run to them, many who took a quick liking to me and vice-versa, and just hug them.

    Today, I wondered if I should post a blog on the wonder and magic of Christmas, but you are so right about continuing on. We must go on to show the love of God in all circumstances, and to rejoice in the beauty of each other. Thank you for this GORGEOUS distraction today; I love all the photos, but that THIRD PHOTO is a marvelous combination of golds and silvers that exude such class. I HAD TO PIN IT!!
    Much love Stacy to you and the boys, Anita

  2. A lovely and thoughtful post Stacey, and like you I'm hugging my loved ones a bit more today.
