Suzanne Kasler’s home in Atlanta…

winemakers’ dinner to celebrate the alliance between

the High Museum of Art and the Musée du Louvre.

Accessories from Pierre Deux and gorgeous coarse tablecloth…

Still in love with simple homespun grain cloth….

A tall pile of my assorted flea market find grain sack pillows

showing the tones from oatmeal to wheat…

Incredible thick nubby texture has all the appeal

of linen without the wrinkles…

Soft silk ribbons and lavender sachets…

I’m starting to use my saved hemp and embroidered silk,

and linen/hemp bolts that I’ve held back for just the right project…

And gingerly cutting my favorite ribbons…why wait?

Christmas is the time to put things out, use things up,

give things away…

For all those who spent the year hunting and gathering…

there are wreaths and garlands to shape, tablecloths to

shake out, collections to polish or dust or soap up…

Christmas is full of artful arrangements

as well as the charmingly artless…

Happy December 1st!
