My heart skips a beat and I confess a little lump in my throat when I remember this shot at my beloved Bee Cottage in East Hampton. Our living spaces hold our stories, many of them universal. Bee Cottage countenanced heartbreak and joy, family heirlooms and flea market flotsam. It tolerated ad hoc collections of art, rocks, shells, bird nests, and my travel mementos. My book “The Bee Cottage Story” is still in print (its 6th!) and signed copies available via my website, link in profile. Take a walk down memory lane with me (and @flowermag!) and tour Bee Cottage in my stories. Photography by Tria Giovan
