I love love love this episode. . .probably because I don't look as tired as my New York episode and my vanity has taken hold. I like my green shirt and my velvet blue blazer and my office outfits with the sweaters and the suede safari jacket, my show house grey flannel with the scarab necklace. . .and on and on. . .I feel MUCH better about this fashion stint than last week where I was somehow a Jenny Craig ad for petites.
I also get a real kick out of watching Kathryn and I duke out our little "space problem" because she and I couldn't be more different. I love how she calls my two halls a Bazaar. Sometimes she can be so ornery that it makes me laugh actually. The entertainment value is worth it. . .I almost egg her on for it. She can't live in my houses and I cannot live in hers so we are like Jack sprat and his wife -- as the rhyme goes. Seems like neither of us is being invited to do either thank god!!!
Another stunning and breath taking look ,your home is beautiful, gorgeous!!! I want to move in, and I am married. You are so talented.
Mary, I am simply mad about that navy mandarin jacket with red trim. Please let us know the designer. Gorgeous!!!
Mary, you are the best interior designer ever! I was bummed that you weren't on the last episode. You are so gorgeous - love your fashion, love your designs, love your self-effacing humor. Hope you will have your own show very soon. Toodles!
I would love to go to Camp Mums! You and Nathan are very worthy of a spin off--I would be glued to the set and I know many others would be as well. I love your style both in decor and in fashion--must get your book! I am so sad we're at the end of the season, will be counting the days for new episodes.
Mary! I missed you in the last episode and your witty remarks! Now I have to wait until the season finale... No! Can't you and Nathan just have your own show? It could be called "Oh God Mums". Nathan says that all the time anyways! :)
your wardrobe was stunning on this episode. chic, chic, chic and you owned it girl!
love your cutthroat humor toward the others and your taste is sublime!
i loved the tile floor in the grand hall and you made that space rock.
i thought your take on @jeffeyalanmarks and his assistant passing on the opportunity
much luv xo
Mary, you are so funny and entertaining, and I love it!! You always look amazing and your clothes and jewelry are to die for! Maybe you could share some of your fashion secrets in your blogs!
Loved your hallways! And how you a Kathryn exchanged "pleasantries" in this episode. I loved how you laughed at her 30-something comment. In fact I just love everything about this episode! Where are the pugs?! just kidding. Oh my God. Anyway. Thank God you are back to being kick ass Mary! And your outfits are awesome! Keep at it!
Hi Mary. I love you and all the designers on the show. youre all so different yet uniquely entertaining. However, I was not impressed with the hallway; it looked very busy and overcluttered for a hallway. Almost like some random storage room! Sorry, but no huge stately home would have a hallway with that much going on. I think you made the mistake of trying to turn it into a room. Also, you & kathryn battling was very funny. You've met your match in each other I think :/
I can't believe that there is someone else as crazy as I am about having to go home to change my clothes if I'm not comfortable about the outfit I am in. I will actually leave work to go home and change. You do look lovely and I love your style.
Mary!!!! I LOVE your jewelry!! Can you tell me where you got the beggars beads that you wore with the blue velvet blazer in the 'Greystone' episode, and also the 'frenemies' episode?
Mary, as always you are a beautiful, fascinating woman! LOVE your style and can't wait to see what you come up with next!
You are absolutely right-your clothes were brilliant this episode! And your hallway design was lovely, too. Wish you and Nathan had a show of your own, the two of you together are such fun.
Mary, Can you please share with us your favorite places to shop for clothes and jewelry. Your wardrobe makes me green with envy!
You really have the most amazing design and fashion sense. I agree with the comment below, about doing a Mary McDonald personal style guide. Also, you are amazingly down to earth, much appreciated!
Love your sense of humor!! When it was time for your reveal, I gasped, that hallway took my breath away, stunning, gorgeous, you would have made the Doheny family very proud. You always create the WOW, and once again you delivered, just spectacular!!!!
You were funny and inspiring in this episode! Loved it! And I may not be a MacDonald like @Peteysmom1 but I'm an O'Hara, so let's meet for cocktails! lol
Mary you are a hoot! You are so witty. It's like you don't take yourself so seriously which is refreshing. You are my favorite keep making us laugh.
If I'm not mistaken, you tackled a grand hallway used in the Big Lebowski. That's worth bragging about.
It is apparent that you love fashion, because every outfit you put together truly is fabulous. One of the reasons I watch MDD is to see your extraordinary jewelry -- it is like no other!
Oh and please tell Nathan that he is greatly missed this season. Your friendship and interactions deserves a spin-off of its own!
Will you please be my new best friend? I promise me and my charming Cairn terrier will never terrorize your pugs. Love your wit and humor, brilliant attitude and impeccable fashion sense. Perhaps the next book might be a Mary McDonald personal style guide? (By the way, my Mom was a MacDonald so we're practically related.)
I so appreciate your humor and love your personality and how you design. I wish more people could laugh at themselves and truly seem to be happy for others success. Thank you Mary, If i ever win the lotto you will be my designer i hope.
