WHEN DECIDING ON SHELF HEIGHT DON’T FORGET TO ACCOUNT FOR HIGH BOOTS AND PURSES. THESE SHELVES WILL BE A DIFFERENT DIMENSION THAT THE ONES YOU USE FOR YOUR PUMPS!
It is dinner party day at our house, I mean our hosts house so the chef is coming, flowers to be delivered, table to be set and general planning. We being fabulous guests we are, leave and go skiing. Our hostess is a master at this and we really will only get in the way, having said that I did do the prep for the cocktail party yesterday. It is birthday day for a friend and we go back up to Cloud 9 restaurant at the top of the mountain for a full dance party complete with bunny ears. I dance on the chairs in ski boots and we all find our groove. Best line on leaving to ski: do you ski as well as you dance? I leave him in the dust.
This Aspen/New York environment continues as our lunch guest all lived in NYC 20 years ago. All chat about studio 54 and there hang outs and there get outs of the city, all wanting to return but all have their stories for leaving. We stay far too long at lunch and miss our tennis game hoping not to be evicted from our lodgings. The dinner party is elegant and subdued in comparison to the Sunday night sing song. The table is large and really forces just conversation to each side; I am sandwiched between two Richards: a builder and a lawyer previously from NYC, now an art gallery owner. It seems if possible people keep a pied-de-terre in NYC and live elsewhere; you just can’t let go. I feel the same way.
