  1. Hi!

    You asked a question on Cote de Texas about the little green things in the white bowl on the cover of the House Beautiful January. I think they may be Osage oranges. They are bumpy, green, inedible oranges used strictly for decorative purposes.

  3. Hi Nancy! How are you doing? Great post...lanterns are everywhere I look. Love gondola lanterns (example here http://www.faccents.com/item565.html). Vaughan's Gothic style is pretty neat..would probably turn it gray. Merci! Trish
