Happy Friday all! Is Bee-lightful the worst pun you’ve ever heard? Yes. It’s nerves I think. My computer’s in the shop and I’m having to write this on an iPad, which I don’t really know how to do yet. It may be next week by the time this posts…

Anyway I did want to share with you the wonderful post in the HomeFurnishings blog about Bee Cottage.

For new readers, Bee Cottage is my house in Long Island that was the subject of a series in House Beautiful last year. The HomeFurnishings blog is the brainchild of Trish McBride Ferguson and is affiliated with the National Home Furnishings Association. It’s very informative and Trish has lots of input from well-known designers and industry insiders on topics ranging from decorating ideas to marketplace trends. Here is her generous nod to little ol’ Bee and me. Sorry to make you click on the link, but I couldn’t work out pasting her post here. But hey, you want to see the blog anyway, right?

The cowboy and I are off to LA this afternoon for friend Alex Hitz’s swell Oscar party … But first my friend Julie and I will giddy up over to the riding arena to watch the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department “Mounted Enforcement Detail” practice. Horses and men in tight pants. Can’t believe I didn’t sell tickets.


  1. Well, how exciting is this? It was Bee Cottage that introduced me to you, Frances, and I love it dearly. What a fun Friday treat! Enjoy your glamorous Oscar weekend!
