Memory like an Elephant

It's funny, some days I can't remember whether or not I put on antiperspirant, but there are images from well-worn glossy mags that are burned into my brain - I could tell where I sat when I first saw them.  This (crappy scan) of a vignette from a 2008 House Beautiful is an example.  I have always, always loved this lemon photograph by interior design photographer, Victoria Pearson.

I remember researching her work when I first saw it, to find out about purchasing a print. 
Never had any luck.
But, guess what Mrs. Meare's happened upon while scoping out Nathan Turner's shop in LA?

*Bum ba da DAAAAM!"
Sound of me clicking through his site.
*PfeeeeewwwwSqueeeek*
Sound of air slowly being let of me when it puts me through to his 1st Dibs booth

*Ka POW*
The Price.

Still, closure.

I so know that project. Loved the living room/fireplace image. Me too....images burned into my brain. Designers are so weird! :)

Seems we were both slain by that image of Nathan's store for nearly the same-but-different reason. I posted about it this morning too. Longtime reader of you also - have been missing your regular posts lately. Glad to see you back.

Is there solace in closure? Sorry it didn't work out for you. Funny how something like this speaks to you, isn't it?
