"Interior Design Train-ing . . . "


Greetings,


Since a great many of us have royal weddings on our collective minds, I thought I share some of my own thoughts about weddings . . . and dresses . . . and also design . . . remember, as we proceed proudly into the future - the entire history of design follows behind us . . . 


So - here's some interior design advice . . . from the center aisle . . .


Just because it's simple, 
it doesn't mean it isn't amazing.  

Not every fierce wind is the enemy.
Be prepared for moments of magic. 


Be yourself.  Even if it means 
wearing a bird on your head.  


Keep your eyes forward - but, don't 
forget to turn and acknowledge the past. 


Be unique . . . 

. . . Because you always know 
what works best for you.

Remember - sit down.  Don't forget that your 
body and your soul need nourishment.  


And always be kind to those fine folks 
who support your creativity.  
You'd be lost without them.

Toasting the royal couple,
Scot

We haven't heard much about Prince Edward and his wife lately, the Wessexes, but they made an attractive bride and groom.

So wonderful scot! Loved this post. I so remember Lady Diana's Royal Wedding and watched it when I was 13, I was in Africa at that time. I'm now in Texas and my sister and law is having a High Tea in honor of the royal wedding. I've purchased my attire and am excited about watching with all my friends. Great nuggets of wisdom! Thanks.

I loved your post, so beautifully put and photos so carefully chosen.I was married for the first time in the same year as Diana and we were the same age, it is very sad to think that she won't be here to see her son wed. However I think it is wonderful that Kate has taken Diana's ring. Enjoy the big day over there Scott, I certainly will be drinking it all in! Love Linda x
