" Mr. Hathaway’s department at Sotheby’s was responsible for four or five huge sales each year, bringing in at least $20 million annually, he said, from blockbusters like the Versacesale in 2001 (which brought $10 million for the contents of the murdered designer’s South Beach mansion) to the Duke and Duchess of Wndsor sale in 1998 (which brought over $23 million for the contents of their Paris villa, which had been bought by Mohamed al-Fayed in 1986)."

Do you think we have enough good places for recovering alcoholics to heal ?
Each one of us has been touched by alcoholism in some way. Whether we realize it or not.
Sometimes it is a co-worker.....
Maybe someone close to you is suffering, or just can't stop drinking when they promise they will.
Maybe you wonder if you are an alcoholic.
This Season Is The hardest Time Of Year For Alcoholics and Recovering Alcoholics.
What are your thoughts on this subject?
After reading this article, and giving it some thought......
I would love to put a huge house together for young woman.
A beautiful, safe, and loving place for young woman to start over.
How cool would it be if?.......
WE became the traveling DESIGN BLOGGERS
taking big old houses, giving them a makeover, (we would need a Huge GRANT of course) and turned them over to the community or town to use for their recovering drug addicts and alcoholics?What a great way to change a life for the better!!!
It is the DESIGN BLOGGERS and their ' Hugh GRANT ' after a ribbon cutting at one of their finished community homes. The Press loves them!!!
It would be a great thing to do.
Just one little town at time.
And helping to change one persons 'path' at a time.
Merry Christmas to all my friends XXXX'x
