Jefferson's Syndrome

i happened to be checking out AD and found Johnathan Adler and husband Simon Doonan's custom built home on NY's Shelter Island- *swoon*

read more about it here and see more pictures here

They had a case of 'The Jefferson's" - aka 'moving on up' (they first had a small a-frame home and then they built the above home) .. DO YOU EVER FEEL LIKE YOU GET THE CASE OF 'THE JEFFERSON'S'?

(tomorrow you will see my DREAM home, it's finally on the market - having a bit of the 'Jefferson's Syndrome' right now)

oh PS - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my parents! - celebrating 41 years of marriage! - now that's a love affair my Butterflies!
