Simply titled “Molyneux”, this book explores more than a dozen projects ranging from a Beaux Arts mansion in the heart of Buenos Aires to a Park Ave penthouse. Complete with Molyneux’s personal insights and strategies, this book is definitely going on my list of must haves. My favorite, the cover! It is a photograph of the Palladian Dog House Molyneux designed for a Kips Bay Showhouse. His client? Max, his beloved Scottie dog! At just 3 feet square, it is complete with real marble floors, artful tromp l’oeil painting (notice the scottie dogs!), a portico in front with Corinthian columns and a pediment. I better not show this to Mimi and Bella! They will want their own Italian Greyhound palace! (come to think of it, they are quite happy with a simple gaze out the back window!)

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

for those of you who read “a thoughtful eye” on a regular basis, you know that I’m madly in love with my two italian greyhounds mimi and bella, so it must come as no surprise that my passion for photography overlaps effortlessly with my love for these two beauties…after experiencing the graceful Wegman images yesterday, I just had to post these two photos from the other day…mimi was sitting near me gazing out the window, enjoying the afternoon sun as only a dog can do…she looked so beautiful and expressive, I just had to try and capture her mood…a comfortable chair, warm sunshine, and a view of the great outdoors…a perfect day in the life of my sweet little mimi

Our italian greyhounds Mimi and Bella had a rough week of winter weather…snow storm after snow storm made it difficult to find walking paths for their delicate little feet…this weekend promises to be the coldest temps in years so I count my blessings that we have a fireplace to keep them warm and lots of toys and socks for them to play with…wishing you a warm and cozy weekend!
