THIS AND THAT




If I haven't mentioned it.....along with my 3 week deadline to makeover 2 rooms it's market time here in Atlanta.  I can't not go right?

Yesterday after a few morning appointments I drove down to see what's new.  

Ha Ha.  [That is God laughing]

I actually drove around for over 45 minutes searching for a parking space.  FYI.....this has never happened before in 20 years of attending these shows 2 x's a year.  I was getting pretty mad frustrated and maybe I started cussing about 20 minutes into the search.  WTF!

I was having one of those conversations with myself that went something like this.....damn I would pay $50 for a space right now.  [Usually I pay about $30 during market].  As soon as I uttered that statement and I was heading back out of town I saw a woman waving a flag....and she had a sign reading parking places...... $50.

I couldn't do it y'all.  So I drove back to Buckhead [about 8.5 miles] parked my car at the Lindbergh Marta station [1/2 mile from my house]  and took the train.  Round trip: $4.

Perk:


120 steps up from the station....#maybeIburnedafewcalories.

But this is not the end of the story.  You have to get your free parking ticket validated when you get off the train.  Yep....you guessed it.  As I was rounding each curve of the parking garage I remembered that I forgot that small detail.

Cost to park: $15.  Total spent to save $20 dollars?  Duh anyone can do that math.....$19. And a wasted hour.

If you made it through that story.....here are some pretty pictures to look at as a reward:)

Much better images of the 2015 Atlanta Holiday Home Showhouse!

It's looking like my 15 minutes of fame is over.....These are from the new issue of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles!

I am back to the show today [of course taking the train] so I should have lots of things to share next week......

Of course here is some "crack" for you to enjoy from my friend Sudi....



She is on the 7th floor [temps] so go by and say Hi:)

Sherry, I just adore you and your posts! I always feel like I've just talked to an old friend. Now that I feel like a total stalker.........I will just say I really wish I had a Sudi in my neck of the woods. My never ending quest will be to find a workroom in my neck of the woods that does pillows like hers. Thanks for the eye candy!
