Millbrook Book Festival

Hope to see all of you who can get to the third annual Millbrook Book Festival in Millbrook, New York this coming Saturday, May 15.

I will be involved in a panel discussion called "Living and Decorating with the Things You Love" moderated by Barbra Milo Ohrbach (Dreaming of Florence)and featuring other design experts and fellow authors: Tricia Foley (At Home with Wedgewood), Linda Dannenberg (French Country Kitchens), and Mita Corsini Bland (Sister Parish Design).

Stop by and say hello. After the panel discussion, I will also be available to sign copies of My First Best Friend.

Hope to see you there!


  1. What a fun event. I am sure if I were attending, I would come home with many gorgeous books.

  2. OH! THAT sounds fun!!! I hope you have a very satisfying time!

  3. Oh my, a roster of some of my very favorite decorating authors! I have nearly all of Tricia Foley's books and several of Barbara Milo Ohrbach's (thanks to Victoria for introducing me to them!) along with a Linda Danneberg book from the 70's, on French beauty secrets, I think! How I would love to be there!
    I hope you'll fill us in on any noteworthy suggestions, comments or points of view you hear discussed!

  4. Oh, how I wish I could come listen, it sounds divine! I hope that you have a lovely time. So glad to have found your blog. xo Lidy

  5. I would love to be there to listen, too. I will content myself with a stroll around the Mansion in May showhouse in NJ however.

    I just bought Tricia Foley's book last week -- it is divine! I look forward to reading your book soon! :)

  6. How did it go, Nancy? Did you get a good turnout??

    Love, Karen Marline

  7. I have The Scented Room and Simply Flowers: Practical Advice and Beautiful Ideas for Creating Flower-Filled Rooms by Barbara Milo Ohrbach. I love them both and strongly suspect that my having them is the direct result of something in Victoria. :) Love Tricia Foley's work and so appreciated her contributions to Victoria.Of course, I also have two wonderful books by you now, too. I hope the day went well for all you terrific authors!
