Well....things and life have certainly changed a little since my last post on fashion.  I have lived through many situations like the gas crisis in the 70's [serious gas lines over an hour long] recessions....9/11 and now this.

I am not an alarmist at heart.....which can be a good thing and bad.  Sometimes it takes me a while to get the situation.....but when my friend sent me this last week I was shocked.

I don't go to the grocery store everyday so I wasn't aware of the panic buying.  I quickly did a toilet paper check and I have 22 rolls so I am hoping I'm good....

I don't want you to think I am taking things lightly....I get it.  I am trying to hang low and luckily I don't hang around big crowds too much.  

So I am showing you a few things that happened in my life in the last 10 days.....

I got an incredible tour of this home that is going on the market....

Rear view....

This Buckhead estate....was pretty amazing....

It's on the market for a measly 10 million or so.

I checked on the Ladisic Fines Homes project that I have been working finally got a coat of paint.  My fav color right now....BM Balboa Mist.

I took a drive to my project in Madison, Georgia and got lost....a trip that normally takes about an hour and 15 mins.....took me 2 hours so I was only able to be there for about 25 minutes.  Crikey.  

I rewarded myself with this snack on the way home because I felt I deserved it after all of that frustration:)

And I scored these throws at HomeGoods for a project....I love these colors!

My client has this flatware for the Madison project..... and it is gorgeous.  We decided to be a little more reasonable for the dishes as it is a second home and the DR table seats 10 and there is room for 6 at the kitchen island.  

So.....I found some cool dinnerware at Bed Bath Beyond....

The color is kind of a gray blue.  I think it's going to be great.

We went to Jenn Balcos Gallery and chose some beauties for Madison.

Some other good stuff I saw while there!

And went next door to Swoox for a few accessories.  Saw all of this great stuff while there.

Yup.... call the news station because there was a small event that happened at my house.  

I cooked on Sunday.

I had to substitute a few things because of the pure hysteria at the grocery store.  Yeah.... no quinoa [fortunately I had some frozen from TJ's] or fresh or frozen peas.  I ended up using canned. 

But it was delish....

Recipe here

Last up....I had to take this pretty girl to the vet again!

But she is all good!

Y'all.....I hope you are all hanging in there.  Lord knows that has been my mantra the last 6 months.  Some things you have no control over so just move through the "muck" of life and stay strong:)

Love you guys always.....

Just wanted to let y'all know all of this was done way before we were advised to stay home....except for the soup....I did go to the grocery store last Sunday and get the ingredients.  I am keeping my interaction to 10 people.....just saying.

Holy Schmoly - that Buckhead Estate?! Incredible. But it can't be easy to sell a house for $10 million..... So I don't have THAT on my plate. Cami is the cutest thing ever. Hope the 22 rolls carries you through.

You are so kind to bring us this comfort in a most uncomfortable time right now. Loved the escape you provided as well as the yummy soup recipe. The only thing that could be better is maybe a "rent a Cami" side business for some unconditional loving, but we understand there are just some things that are not for sharing! Pictures will just have to do. ��
Stay well!

there is the downer, previous commenter, go to your corner and shut up!

I loved this post, it was a fresh relief; "shopping" with you, cooking, design, your humor & Cami time. keep at it girlfriend

an ode to your 22 rolls of TP (I looked it up for grins, I did not write this!)

Angel number 22 is a powerful sign from your angels that you are on purpose in life and about to turn your dreams into reality.

There you go, keep at it xoxo

Oh boy, sweet Cami! She looks happy! I went to my store to purchase some toilet paper, my hair dresser said a truck came in. Well, I had no luck, I was way too late so I bought a few other items. The bread aisle had nada, not even crumbs! Bummed for sure. I understand Target, Whole Foods and others are going to begin letting seniors in one hour earlier than the normal crowd. What a great thing to do, I'm all for it! We can't let this damn virus get to our seniors/elderly. My dad lives with us, he is 89 and on hospice, I don't let anyone in my house except the hospice nurse! Stay safe!

Hi Sherry, thanks for the beautiful distractions, please, please keep em' coming! It's day #2 of "Shelter in Place" (or Lockdown) orders, out here in the San Francisco Bay Area, 7 million of us. I think until April 7th! Anyhoo, I will definitely become better acquainted with my kitchen, lol! Went to the store today, they were pretty much stocked with everything but T.P, paper towels and napkins. For now, I have enough of that stuff. However, if the grocery stores haven't re-stocked by next week, I may have to pretend it's circa 1850 and tear up a bed sheet, towels or something, lol. We'll survive, it's a very small sacrifice for the greater good, like Shelly's dad and my 85 and 88 year old parents which are thank goodness, very healthy. We have to keep it that way and not further burden the Hospitals and such. BTW, my folks are handling this unusual situation really well. My mom said, "for god sakes, I've been through worse, what's the big deal" but, I'm just a little bit disappointed that we couldn't go out dancing". What can I say, Depression Era/WW2 kids. Tough as nails...those two. Well, take care everyone, sending lots of <3
