I can just imagine taking a long bath to prepare for a party in this beautiful tub.
Look at all those art and design books!! I could lose myself for hours. It reminds me of my friend Joyce, whose collection of books pertaining to design and food is truly outstanding. I spent a few hours just in Joyce's storage unit of books (a storage unit just of books! my heaven!), examining all her tomes that didn't make the cut to reside in her house. Incidentally, Joyce has two recipes featured in Julia's latest book, which totally makes me feel famous by association.
In related matters, my sister in law gave me this book by Bryan Batt, of Mad Men fame, and co-owner of Hazelnut in New Orleans.
