My Life in a Nutshell!

I told you I had some exciting news to share with you and up first on the list is my Blogoshere profile on 1stdibs! I must say it’s weird to be on the other end of an interview but writer Marcia Sherrill was very sweet to work with. We started talking months ago so it’s fun to see it finally in print. It was needless to say, the talk of the office today. Hope you enjoy it too!

Also, I owe a big thanks to Porter Hovey for my great headshot. She was a pro to work with and if you ever need a photographer, definitely give her a call!

    Heather, congratulations! I don’t feel like I need to keep your name anonymous anymore becuase I think the whole world will know it soon, if they don’t already! Congratulations on the 1st Dibs interview, I can’t think of anyone else that is more deserving. If there is more to come, I can’t wait to hear it!

    Thanks Suzy! It’s so fun to share it with people like you who’ve been so supportive from the beginning! I hope you visit NYC soon so we can finally go shopping together!!!

    So happy to see you on 1st dibs, I am sure it’s all because I told them you were my FAVORITE blog!LOL Only kidding, you are so talented, thanks to your enticing blog, I am now planning my SECOND trip to NYC for Kips Bay! Keep up the good work…maybe we’ll bump into one another at Bergdorf’s!

    Congratulations, Heather! What a nice article. I’ve been lurking on your blog for a while, and it’s nice to put a face with your great posts! One question for you – do you have any suggestions for organizing tear sheets? I am constantly tearing pages out of magazines of things that I like, but I am in desperate need of a better organizational system! Congrats again! Can’t wait to hear more of the good news …

    Hi Heather,

    I have been reading your blog and I think it’s fantastic. Personally I think it beats Rita Konig’s! I am in Melbourne, Australia but I feel am in NYC again(and when I visited I loved Bergdorfs too…). I love the succinct comments, personality and great photos. I am not suprised your blog is being recognised by 1st Dibs. Congratulations- it’s so well deserved!
