  18. This post absolutely embodies the kind of person that you are! We all must learn to say thank you more often!

    PS Patricia would you mind sending me an email with your favorite white laquer paint and your favorite white paint for rooms. Can you believe I want to bring back mini-quarts with me to Morocco for matching!

  19. I am, like everyone else here, dying to see photographs!

  20. Patricia, I'm most excited to see the Alma Epi in your photo. One of my all time favorite bags ;) I should have suspected you would have impeccable taste in accessories as well.
