I decided to cast aside all responsibility last Friday and head to Scott's. I have an uncanny ability to be able to shirk my duties at any given time and retreat to a better place....like shopping and looking at pretty things.
Anyway.....forget about my faults.
It happened to be a beautiful day and I used the excuse that I needed a few accessories for an install. I remember saying during the great "guest room" clean out last month that I was never going again....well that lasted a hot minute right?
I always start outside in the south building cause I am a "junker" at heart.
I saw this great cornice....
And these awesome indigo fabrics.
My wheels were turning with these.
Pretty fabrics including this gray mohair below!
Sold....thank goodness for me:)
What is not to like about this pillow!
I was drawn to the bright colors....
I tried not to get involved....which would have led to trouble:)
The colors in this rug....I am ready for someone to let me do some blue and coral....
Chairs....chairs....I can't quit you!
Why did I not get this cute little trash can....it is the perfect color for my bathroom.
Here is the color scheme.....
But of course I am drawn to this lamp....
What did I buy?
The best deal was that little vase for $1.00
And....look who I crossed paths with! My friend Lisa Mowry who was shopping with designer Michelle Workman. Michelle just relocated to Chattanooga from LA. Wonder what I have squeezed in my hand? I need to learn how to stand like Michelle....like I own the joint!!
9 days until Christmas...it might as well be 9 days until July 4th......because time is going so darn fast.
I decided to have a few neighbors over next Sunday for some holiday cheer. I wrote the e-vite and sat on it for 3 days knowing that if I pushed send it could thrust me into a small design panic. I am not worried about the food like most people because my sister owns a restaurant [I'm covered there].
But you know....the little things that you keep saying you will get around to doing. I went running into Sudi's workroom yesterday like my hair was on fire shouting how "I needed a window treatment for my guest bath ASAP." Forget all of your deadlines......[pillows for the Atlanta show coming up in January and other designers deadlines]. I can be selfish like that. Me...me....me.....
There will be more similar moments before Sunday. I mean my measly pathetic holiday greenery now looks like a version of the "Charlie Brown Christmas tree"
Crikey I will have to step. it. up.
