Big Time--I'm on my way, I'm making it...

So while I was filming this new movie in Carmel a couple of weeks ago, I decided to look up the mother of an old friend of mine. Tracy Winters has been an interior designer as long as I can remember. In a small suburban city like Modesto, she had what I now realize in retrospect was truly "eclectic style." In a land of tract homes and McMansions, she (and her son, my childhood best friend Matt) decorated her small homes with such panache. I remember one home in particular had an old fashioned manual-style doorbell--the kind I now have in my Edwardian flat! I also remember a plaster bust of Caesar (or some other Roman or Greek) on a pedestal. Throws artfully draped across a chair or sofa. A hodgepodge of decorative accessories that just worked well together.

I remember Matt recently telling me that she had moved down to Carmel and had a shop there. So when I had a day off from filming I decided to look her up...

...Her shop was in the shopping center across the street from my hotel!

After nearly 20 years, I re-introduced myself and got a big hug from Tracy. Her shop, Consignment Carmel, was like everything I remembered her homes to be: a well-curated mix of local finds and treasures.

Here are some pieces I saw that really interested me:

I was sad that I didn't get a chance to go back before I left Carmel. But once I get paid from the movie, I think I'll take trip back and see what new treasures she has to offer!
