Seize The Week

Most people probably think of Spring as a time of rebirth, but personally fall has always felt like the season for beginning again and starting new projects. This morning the cold weather I've been eagerly anticipating has finally arrived and I am ready to put plans into action.

A few things have been percolating here and the first to go live is that Henhurst has recently opened an Etsy shop. Please click over and have a look.

Interestingly enough, fall is my busiest time for decorating work; most new clients reach out to me in September and October. Maybe it is the climate here that inspires that desire; after all, nature herself is redecorating as well.

Wishing everyone a productive week ahead.


  1. I am heading right over to your shop Phyllis! How exciting, congrats!

  2. I LOVE Chairish and I was perusing your shop late one night. I love everything and I notice some new pieces today too. Congrats on being busy with clients(that's always a great thing:-)). Happy New week. xx

  3. Heading over to see your shop! Looking forward to hearing about your projects.

  4. I Love Fall! Everything is crisp and "clear"....Wakes up all the creativity!

  5. I love Chairish so I must head over and see what lovely things you have there!!

  6. Hi Phyllis ... Heading over to your shop. Fall is such a great time, it's when everyone thinks about heading indoors and settling for the winter. I also often think people redecorate now because the holidays are coming and they want to freshen up a big.

    Whatever ... it's a great refreshing time of the year.

    Have a good week.

  7. Phyllis,
    What fun. I love several of your items in your shop. I've signed up and will look forward to shopping in earnest.
    Happy fall, I love this season, now if California weather would just get on board, I'd be giddy with joy.

  8. I feel the same way about this time of year. It is our busiest time of year as well. Do you think people start thinking about getting their homes all set for the holidays? Whatever the reason, I am happy to hear that you are busy designing and creating beautiful rooms for your clients…
    Congratulations on your new shop :)


  9. Hi, Phyllis - Congrats on your new online shop! Will check frequently. And thanks for introducing me to Charish - looks very user / shopper friendly. Looking forward to seeing you soon. xo

  10. Ooops I meant Chairish. I'm such a bad speller :( And beautiful pieces you've listed!!

  11. Phyllis your shop is amazing - so many beautiful items. Know why you are so busy - love your work!!

  12. Phyllis, how exciting, I will check out your new shop! Wishing you a wonderful week! xo Kat

  13. Congrats on the shop! I am off to check it out!

  14. Congrats Phyllis!! Can't wait to look! Beautiful topiaries:-). Xo, K

  15. Congratulations on the shop, that's wonderful! Busy here as well. I think once the kids get back to school, mommas are ready to reclaim their homes and get big projects done before the holidays.
    I'm jealous of your fall beauty...we don't get to experience that here.

  16. I agree Phyllis - I always feel a sense of rebirth in the fall, perhaps with the start of the school year. Your home looks beautiful as always...I love your wall colour - I am sure you told me what it is and I must look back at emails - I want a soft greige for my office. Hope you are well - love the new blog photo - you're such a beauty and perfectly suit your house!! xo Terri

  17. Congratulations on your Chairish collaboration!!! You have great taste Phyllis. I loved seeing your home on My Notting Hill's site, your photographs are spectacular and really show off your beautiful home. Everything's looking good! Enjoy the fall! xo Nancy
