Did I scare you!? For the next two weeks, while most of us will be enjoying the dog days of summer, Jaithan and I will be knee-deep in gauze, shooting a Halloween special in San Francisco for HGTV! We'll be back Monday the 17th, but in the meantime, follow me on Twitter for behind-the-scenes action, drop by our Etsy shop for great new finds, and, if wandering in our neck of the woods, visit our friend Susan for vintage lamps and custom shades worthy of the Times. Happy Hallo—I mean Happy Summer, everyone!
