Orlando Diaz-Azcuy and Diane Dorrans Saeks at Gumps

Diane Dorrans Saeks and Orlando Diaz-Azcuy

Good evening,

There's nothing quite like a grand evening at Gumps in downtown San Francisco to celebrate the wonderful new book of Orlando Diaz-Azcuy's marvelous interiors.  

Such a great new book!  Full of inspiration on every page.

Diane Dorrans Saeks and Gene Ogden

With my brand new copy of the book in hand, the talented Diane Dorrans Saeks, the book's author, was my first stop.  My friend Gene Ogden, from Gumps, was helping move the line along and introduced me to Diane.  As she began to autograph my copy, I interjected that it was Scot "with one 't'," at which point she looked up and said, "Oh my, are you Tartanscot?  I've read your blog."  (and honestly, I may have fainted for one quick moment . . . lol)

There was a long line throughout the evening - including the SF design duo - George Brazil and Cecilia Sagrera-Hill.

Katie Denham and Lise Stubbs

Also waiting in line -  Katie from "Katie-Did."  Double YAY - We finally had a chance to meet and what a delight!  I wish the evening had been a bit less crowded and frantic so that we could have chatted more . . . but, we've already got plans to get together again.  I ran into Grant Gibson as well - but didn't manage to find him again once I had my camera out.

It's late here (well, not really late, but late for me to still be awake . . . lol) and I'm off to bed.

Get out of town! You've got to be kidding! Yall had a mini blog fest! What fun.

I think I would have required the smelling salts if someone said, "oh, you must be Granny Smith Green". I'd just die!

Katiedid and Grant Gibson! That's just too much!

Hope you got a good nights sleep. Forget caffeine, I'd have been awake because of too much adrenaline! Glad you had such fun!

WHAT FUN!!!

I was at the garden event last weekend and a very chic and stylish man whom I've long admired for his perfect taste told me that he read my blog. I need to learn to say 'thank you so much' instead of "REALLY??? YA DO???"

So cool!!! The same thing happen to me at Brasserie Balzar in Paris during Maison Objet. My friend Michael introduced me to Barbara King at House Beautiful and she said, "I love your blog." You could have knocked me over with a feather!

Isn't it amazing when words sent up into cyberspace come down to earth in the most unusual places? For perfect moments like this, is an aria required?
