Well, "all this" happened to be a box packed with fabric sample books from Gaynor, another neat friend, who has an interior designer buddy. "Fabric samples" does not do my latest pile 'o' stuff justice: these goods are drop-dead gorgeous.

The nattering nabobs of negativity (don't you love it...one of Nixon's speechwriters, William Safire I think, came up with that) may say, "But what will you ever do with that stuff?"
Actually, I've been the happy recipient of other sample books, from our favorite upholsterer, Patsy Carter. A few years ago, when I was invited to be part of a wedding album for Dana and Trevor, our teachers at Infinite Yoga, I asked if I could embellish the photo album's cover. I chose home-dec samples in Indian colors, because our lineage of Ashtanga Yoga comes from India. Click below for more detail on the album cover.
