    Judy, I have followed you from the start – back when you and Jane started Sea of Shoes, and when you branched out and started your own blog.
    I have loved EVERY post and hope you never stop!
    I have one little query – Do you remember when you and Jane used to do the 3 day shoe challenge? I really hope you bring that back, its so inspiring to see how creative you get when your only allowed to wear one pair of shoes!!
    Happy New Year and I wish you and your girls all the best in 2010
    (P.S. tell Carol I love her cooking and hope it features some more this year- she is very inspiring)

    Happy New Year, Judy! Thanks for many dozens of inspiring posts.
    Some of my favorites from the past:
    I have to absolutely agree with the first commenter: that look you’re sporting while lounging on the department store couch – link necklace, circle skirt, cardigan – really inspired me for its classic simplicity, yet playfulness.
    Do you remember that post you did once on your black (or slate?) Ports 1969 skirt? It had a fabulous cage-like crinoline and a nipped waist. Just loved how you styled it, with a ballet sweater tied at the waist.
    A third favorite was the black jacket, white tee, and striking black slacks you sported in a shot from Central Park, when you were NYC for a Vogue shoot. That was fabulous!
    A very happy and healthy New Year to you!

    PUH-LEASE do a feature about bathrooms!! Need to completely remodel/build not one, not two, but THREE of the damn things and have found few sources for inspiration so far. Bathrooms are so important– how could they be so overlooked? I don’t want a bathroom that looks like something in a hotel spa, or like something in gentleman’s club, or like a futuristic fish-bowl (yawn)…do you have any insights to offer?
    This site here had some good pics, but not much:
    Would love to see/hear your ideas on the subject.
