There's a great spread of my little Hell's Kitchen apartment in Domino this month.


It's all about two of Jaithan's and my favorite thingsโ€”decorating and entertaining! And just in time for the holidays too. The black and white etchings are from the flea market here in town. My friend Steve McKenzie from Larson-Juhl did such an amazing job framing them, don't you think? The early American pressed glass pitcher I found at Braswell's in Connecticut, but ebay has great ones just like it!


Check out the old pharmaceutical cabinet I found with my grandfather! I think it's the perfect place for all the ironstone platters I've collected ever since my catering days back in high school. Most of the coin silver serving spoons I found at flea markets and thrift shops, then used ebay to fill out my collection. On the mantle, I used creative candles in antique wooden candlesticks from a junk shop in Delaware. 


And finally, do you remember that Chippendale-style secretary I made over a while back? I swapped out the glass for mirror, then gave it a fresh coat of paint. Now it keeps all my stationery, envelopes and cards, many of them in antique toast racks, neat and tidy. 


The new issue should be out any day now, but in the meantime, click here to download the full story,  And be sure to come back tomorrow for plenty of more tips on holiday entertaining!
