Attitude...it is Holly's attitude. Her glamour was in the little things, like, the goblet she drinks her milk out of, her vanity, her clothes, etc. I love this approach at life - that you can invest in the things you love. That these small things makes all the difference. She was in no way rich, and believe me, neither am I.
Here is my "Breakfast at Brockman's." These are some of the small things in life that make me happy. The picture above is a mixture of items that I have collected recently. An issue of Architectural Digest, vintage 1940's silverware (a set of 8 for $16.00 at a local thrift antique shop), bone china tea cups (a set of 12 for $10.00 at Second Debut in Carytown, Richmond, VA), and our crystal goblets (can you believe it a set of 10 for $5.00 at a local thrift store - Fantastic Thrift).
As I was reading an issue of House Beautiful, one designer described our style perfectly when he said, "I like to think of my life as living like Marie Antoinette in a t-shirt."
