THIS AND THAT




A few things to cover today.....nothing earth shattering of course because we all know that Wednesday is the ORC reveal and I am sure it will be a "kumbaya" moment for all.

I was in Florida last week for all the rain.  Yup....21" in 24 hours.  Pretty much from Tuesday to Thursday night we got pounded.

I was bored.  

And I kept thinking of all the things I could be doing in the DR for the ORC.  Now...I will be scurrying like a honey badger.

While we were gone it also rained in Atlanta and the planting I did a couple of weeks ago is starting to fill out.

 


I still love the stripe umbrella from Ballard Designs [from last year] and I am trying to get one more year out of my outdoor furniture.  It is 10 years old and even though it cleans up nicely with my trusty power washer if I linger on one spot too long... I get a small hole.  Whoops.


In other news... for some reason ADAC selected me to give a tour.

I wish I could say this was open for everybody and we could have a big ole party, but it is only open to the trade.  If you are a designer and don't use the resources at ADAC...then you are missing out on a heck of a lot of good stuff.   I am not going to sugar coat this...please...someone show up:)

Next in this lineup of riveting topics is a little purchase at HomeGoods.

I picked up these 2 horns and decided to use them as bookends.  Oh HG's....why you gotta be about 500 ft from my house.

ORC update:
Last week I complained about my door knobs not showing up and then [like they heard me] ...ding dong...run to the door...


I'm in love:)

I am about to get crunk here so I can pull it together for Wednesday.
