I was recently fortunate enough to have made a new blogging friend in Maryanne Flagherty, the author of the fabulous blog, Beadboard UpCountry.

Maryanne has a fabulous  award-winning shop in Brenham, Texas, which is between Houston and Austin where she has some gorgeous things including linens, pottery and glassware.

She carries beautiful linens from such great lines as Arte Pura, Papillion, Peacock Alley and French Laundry. Her specialty is in bedding and table linens in natural fabrics such as linen and cotton, and her color selection is tremendous.


I'm very in love with these luscious blankets she has from Brahams Mount.

At Beadboard Upcountry it's  easy to set a  beautiful table with such lines as Juliska and Arte Italica.

But most importantly of all, Maryanne is a very talented decorator who can help you put it all together to make a fabulous statement in your home. And this is how she and I were introduced to each other.

Maryanne has a client from Louisiana who was looking for a pair of sconces. This client had a very narrow space for some sconces and she found some on my website and told Maryanne about them and how they can be ordered in exactly the size she needed since we are a custom line.

This is how Maryanne and I found each other and now we are mutual fans. In fact, she has done a fantastic post on some of my work, including some of my latest designs.

So go over to her wonderful blog and check it out. I see much more collaboration in our future since I am in the process of designing some new beds and Maryanne has such beautiful linens to dress them with.

Thank you, Maryanne, my new blogging friend for the wonderful post!
