My mother-in-law, Mary,  has lived in more countries than anyone I know. She and her husband, Jim, have lived in  Denmark, Abu Dhabi, Scotland,  Egypt, Russia, Thailand and Germany–and I’m sure I’m missing a few. She is a great traveler, has endless energy and impeccable taste–her well-traveled home is both chic and homey, collected and eclectic.  I thought you’d enjoy e peek at her collection of wonderful objects and pieces of art she’s picked up all over the globe and has on display at her home-base in Palm Desert.  I love her African dolls and the Suzani textiles so much.

Thanks for a wonderfully relaxing week,  Mary!
