I confess. I did it. I handed our daughter your latest issue of Time magazine. I knew that she would probably tear it into a million pieces. But she was going after my Anthropologie catalog.

I recently ran across this chandelier at Anthropologie. A little piece of my heart always loves seeing objects used in unexpected ways.

I am closing my eyes and picturing myself in some villa from the Italian film "Il Postino." The breeze gently knocking the abalone on the chandelier as the sunlight fills the room. And of course I'm wearing a fabulous dress from Athropologie too - with vintage-looking leather sandals and a hand-crafted leather-bound journal on my lap.

I think that I especially like the chandelier because it transports me. Kind of like a good book. Which reminds me, I need a new bedside book. Any recommendations?
