I took a day off last week and made a quick trip to Dallas in between school drop off and pick up. Over the years I have become very adept at this little ritual of sorts. To me, it is an easy renewal of inspiration!! I live an hour and a half south of Big D and every now and then, I heed Diana Vreeland’s words ~ “the eye has to travel”. I think she meant farther than an hour and half away. However, I’ll take what I can get. One of my favorite haunts is the home decor floor of Neimans. A friend of mine works there and she asked last week if I had seen the latest Juliska dinnerware, Country Estate in blue. It can only be pre-ordered now and is still in production in Portugal. In fact, Neimans only has the samples from the showroom. Being a huge fan of anything blue and white and Juliska, I love it. These are the only samples in the country, so you can truly say you saw it first on Hadley Court!!
