There was a water main break in our area today. So when I arrived at work, early – I was not able to wash my usual coffee mug(yes, I confess, I left it on my desk the night before). I reached in the upper cabinets and retrieved one of the nice cups and saucers that we save for clients. Well, it made me sit up straighter, drink a little less coffee, and enjoy it more. I felt like I was somehow in a more lovely space. Silly? Yes, I knowwww (hear Craig Ferguson). But it is true! Sooooo, at lunch I repeated the experiment. The local restaurants still had no water, so I could not have a fountain coke. I had a can of cold green tea in the office frig. I ate at my desk, as usual. But I decided to pour the tea into the large stemmed wine glass also reserved for clients. It made my pimento cheese from Brent’s Drug Store taste even better.
I have been blogging under Celia Barrett Design as Designer Diner, but now it is official. This is the name of my new interior design blog. I plan to have fun with this one. lots of design tips, design thoughts and ideas, but also a few recipe and foody thoughts, and Art Deco directions. Please be patient with me and i’ll bring you many wonderful things.
