Dinner at Nathan Turner

Last evening was one of the most fun and memorable dinners in recent memory. Nathan Turner and Mary McDonald hosted me, my family, Suzanne Donegan, Michelle Nussbaumer and Michael Billings at Nathan's beautiful shop in West Hollywood. The food, company and surrounds were sheer perfection. Thank you both for all the laughs and the wonderful hospitality.

Much to everyone's amusement or dismay, Mary and I ended the night with our own version of Karaoke singing Phil Colin's Separate Lives. When we couldn't remember the words we had to go online. Next time we'll just have to go to a Karaoke club so we can have both the words and music.

How exciting! And how inspiring to read that these style icons (and you) are such warm and generous people. Nathan's store looks beautiful too (of course!) :)

Can't wait to see what's next!

Looks like everyone had a great evening! Love stopping by to see where you're off to next and what fun things you always bring back to share!
Remind me to ask you sometime about what took you from the Lone Star State to the UK...

Have a good evening.

Cute pics. LOVE LOVE LOVE the screen in the 2nd to last photo. On a side note, Phil's "Something Happened on the Way to Heaven" also happens to be my favorite karaoke song of all time ever.

I think your son and Daisy were the best designs there. Adorable but classic.
