Can't say I wasn't inspired the three weeks I was a vendor at the Show House. The designers were awesome and I could relate to much of the rooms, thinking...
Loved the library. The light was incredible and the designer took advantage of that. The wood paneling glowed and the creamy, beige palate with blues subtly woven in made this room one of my favs.
The house this year was not what you would call a "wow" house. In fact many design house devotees/groupies were disappointed. However most "normal" people were charmed and inspired as the house reflected changes in economy. Things are more conservative these days.
Even at designer show houses!

But the fence?
Monet's garden was as I imagined, absolutely beautiful.

My son and I were in Europe, volcano erupted as we traveled to Germany and extended our trip about 6 days. Luckily we were with my sister and treated like royalty.
Still, it is good to be home and, almost, back to a routine. I came back to a designer showhouse boutique that, lucky for me, my very amazing friend Susan was able to staff until I came home.
And now, We will choose our contractor/builder for our kitchen addition!
YES! Then the real blogging begins!
And, isn't this chair-Chloe, from Bungalow 5 divine?
I am picturing ten of these babies around my long kitchen table I plan on having... if there is any $$$ left after the construction that is!

Her sport is lacrosse and sophomore year is a big year if you want to play in college... she does.
And now she is in the 3rd week of mono.
She doesn't complain, whine or moan.
She stoically goes to practice every day even in the rain and cold, though she can't play.
it could be a few weeks before she can step foot on the field.
I really admire her spirit and attitude.
And those qualities will take her further than any sport ever could.
