You mention your new svelte self...as a master of the "before and after" for furniture, am I the only one who is amazed by the transformation you have accomplished on YOURSELF? Can you please let us know how much you lost and how you got into this great shape? I see recipes for pancakes and am left wondering what you did!!!

Whew! I had been culling the dead-end blogs from my Decorating Bookmarks and a little voice said, "wait", and today Feb 15th, treating myself after pre-spring cleaning my office which is set up in the "maid's" room up the skinny stairs from the kitchen, I find your new long posts to read :). What a lovely surprise!

Welcome back. Your creativity and vision truly inspires me, and brings out the best in me. I do hope you and Jaithan will be in the Chicago area for a book signing so I can get a "live" boost to my creativity. I draw so much strength from your authentic and fun approach to living in and loving simple beauty in our homes. Congratulations from a grateful reader.

Oh, Eddie and Jaithan you have been missed! So glad to find you again and look forward to reading about your adventures. Welcome back! Love, Marie

E + J...
This post was beautiful! I love how creative you two are and it's truly an inspiration to see what the year brought you and where it brought you. I had a similar year with my grandfather passing away and moving into our new home too. It's funny how time changes things and how we grow into even better people with the adventures we go through! I can't wait to see what 2014 brings us all!

Happy to see you back blogging! Congratulations to the two of you for your success this past year, and may this year be just as wonderful. I totally get the living in the country part... so grateful to get to live here- nothing like it!

I might start crying with joy that you're back. Your presence has been missed more than you'll ever know.

And, is it too early to start planning your book signing in Rye?!!!!!!
Big hugs to you both!

Phew! What a whirlwind year! and so happy you landed in the country again. I've been following you on IG and the feel, the fires, the fruit picking, all are so inspiring. I wish you a grand year ahead, with lots of wonderful memories made at Pine HIll Farm. It is so beautiful, congratulations! Im so proud to see you all over the media since we met at the Dulles Expo fair and we are huge fans of the two of you. Welcome back to blogging- we missed you! xo Nancy

Eddie I am beyond thrilled that you are posting again..I love a peek into your wonderfully curated lives! I will be following with great excitement...welcome back!!You have been missed.

Blimey what a year; tears and laughs and thousands of bloody boxes. Hope you're enjoying your new perches, they look as gorgeous as ever. So happy to see you back!

Omg, I can't quite wrap my head around your whirlwind lives.
Where does time go??
You guys have been on an amazing ride!
Well maybe we will see each other again this year as Chris is moving to NYC in July.
Miss you both terribly!!!
Let's talk soon :)

Lots of Love,


Oh, how much I missed your updates, Eddie! I adore you, your blog, and your style. I am SO glad you came back to blogging! Thank you so much for sharing your journey over the last year with us. I love your new city apartment, and your country retreat is so charming. I am very sorry to hear about your grandmother Dottie. Reading about her passing brought me to tears (I am also very close to my grandma. Although she is till alive, I don't get to see her often...)

Happy 2014 to you and Jaithan! Looking forward to hearing more about your new book!

Pine Hill Farm is so enchanting! I'm very excited to purchase this book! I have such envy over all of your Goodwill finds you keep posting on Insta!! Y'all's style is amazing!! Best wishes to you both in 2014!

Great post, guys! Welcome back to the blogosphere. Your Christmas party was a blast, thanks for including us. Reggie and Boy

Eddie, it's so fantastic to see your blog running again! Cannot wait to hear more about what you and Jaithan are up to in 2014...And I'm SO excited about the book! Congratulations on everything!!

Eddie & Jaithan,

So glad you're back! You've been missed! And congratulations on the book deal. Very excited to get my hands on it. You entertain like no one I've ever seen. Thanks for being such an inspiration.

Eddie, I loved following your year on Instagram & Twitter, and now reading the recap just amplifies the amazing year that it was. =) I hope you will be making your way south again soon! Would love to see you and Jaithan again! I hope 2014 is just as lovely and successful as last year was!

Much love to you both!

So excited your back! Looking forward to the book and the weekly updates.

I knew all kinda stuff must have been going on with you two. You didn't disappoint! So glad to see you back. So sad to read about your grandmother but you have really honored the two of them and I know you will keep them in your heart.

How great and generous to share your year this way!

Eddie & Jathan,

The both of you look so happy. Sending lots of love. I am now a CT resident, moved to Ivoryton, studio &home. Miss you. Let's talk soon. Xoxoxo

Phew, I'm exhausted just reading about your lives! You two boys remember to relax occasionally, (and in return I'll try and be a bit more industrious). Anyway, delighted to have you back in the blogosphere; it's been very empty without you.

I'm so glad you are back. I too have missed you guys. Looking forward to posts of the new place.


what an inspiring wrap up this is -thanks for sharing! Happy new year to you both.

Congratulations to both of you on your move, home and jobs. Looking forward to reading more on the blog and BHG.

And the Royal Tannenbaums shot was great! So funny.

What a beautiful and heartfelt year. Congratulations, big hugs and a warm thank you for always bringing so much inspiration! Best, Catherine

oh my goodness!! I sure missed Y'all! Glad you are gonna be back here. Can't believe how eventful your moves have been. It really seems like that new property was saved just for the two of you. Glad you can enjoy your city & country sides. lol

Blessings, Denise Marie

YEAH! So happy you're back. You are always so inspirational. (I just picked up some old crystal champagne coupes at Portobello market because of you) I've been checking in on you via instagram, but it's just not enough. Welcome back!

Great to see you back posting! And life without change would be very boring, so congrats on all of your wonderful changes this past year, including the book! I hope 2014 is full of health, happiness, and happy changes!


You had a full 2013! I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved grandmother. I look forward to seeing what you have in store for 2014!

Congratulations Gentlemen!!! We so enjoyed your visit to Omaha and our Antique & Garden Show....and what a busy year for you both. Give Carolyne our love when you see her! David & Rick

Wow! What a charming year it's been for you! Your photos definitely inspire me to dig out my pretty things and keep on the hunt for more. Thanks for the inspiration!

Surprised was not the word when I saw this email, but very pleasantly surprised. Good luck to you both and I do look forward to learning new tips and tricks from you. I'd just like to say Welcome back we missed you.

I love following your adventures and the passion Jaithan and you share in life. Your honor of all old and new is always inspiring. Best wishes for an amazing 2014!

Yeah! I have come by often hoping there may be a post or two. So looking forward to see all the wonderful things that are happening. Congratulations to you both on becoming authors. I look forward to purchasing your book.

Wow what a year in pictures! Sort of like Time magazine ;-) I've loved following along on instagram as you guys make pine hill farm home. Its so fun and inspiring to watch. I hope many more blessings come your way this year.

Marvelous year in review! I has missed the news about Jaithan's new position at Grange. Fabulous! Much love & congrats to you both on a lovely year. Here's to 2014!

Hé ! Eddie it's nice to read you, best recap
And also I Wish you an happy new year !

Hi Eddie,
Beautiful and inspiring post, so glad you are back to blogging and I am looking forward to this year's posts. Congrats on your new book, I can't wait until it is out.
Wishing you and your family a great and successful year in all aspects. Love the photos!

Welcome back! So excited to see you blogging again and am looking forward to again being treated weekly to your inspiring photos and commentary.

Boys, Thank you for updating us on your wonderfully fascinating lives! I followed you on here for years and then you went quiet, no wonder! I now follow you on Instagram and have done for a while, so at least I feel I can "follow" your amazing passage through this crazy world. You have made dream lives for yourselves and I am certain that your mom-mom and pop-pop will be so very, very proud of you both. People only dream of such a way of living. I often re-listen to The Skirted Roundtable chats (especially when I am cleaning my house) and yours and Jaithan's is truly one of my favourites ("I am so over those periodic tables!" is a classic!!!) You are an inspiration together with Jaithan and I hope to read and see more about your epic journey.

Happy New Year boys! xx

Yikes! You're back! Thank goodness....instangram's ok but really not as satisfying as a blog post. Love your farm. I must plant blueberries to go with my raspberries.

Brilliant and heartwarming.
Lots of LOVE!

happy to see you! so excited about the book! omg.. it will be awesome!
loved your post XO jan

It feels soooo good to be writing a comment here on your blog. I miss you blogging, even though I follow along on FB. Welcome back and I am so glad that you and Jaithan have found a place where you feel centered and at home. Welcome back. Sending you both a two handed hug!!

...is the new puppy home yet?

Eddie and Jaithan - So nice to see you back, and I am dizzy from that tour-de-tour-de-force post. Love your creative energy! Eddie, hope you got the New Years note I sent to the 27th floor! Happy New 2014!


SO, so thrilled to see you back blogging and SO proud of you for your book! What a whirlwind this last year has been for you. With much love from Chicago!

Whew! Welcome back!
