  1. Thank you for the wonderful reading ideas, I am sure I will spend some QT there later this weekend.
    Happy Holidays to you and your family. I can’t wait to see what the new year brings for your posts!

  2. As always, thanks for more great suggestions – I was trying to follow the link for “Fresh Looks for Banquettes” and it leads me to a different advertising page each time…..not sure if this is a quick fix on your end or an issue on mine but I really want to read that article, maybe I will try to find it through BH&G!

  3. Kate – a few of us over at bhg’s site were hoping yo could tell us where the first tufted banquette is from in your post there??? Can you help?
