“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you dies each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintry light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person had died for no reason.”-Ernest Hemingway
High Point Spring Market
Well, I HAD intended to attend High Point Market a couple of days, however, due to schedule & the weather I only got to attend for 1/2 day on the Monday. Bummer, however, after a bit of a bust of a lunch for the Sustainable Furnishings Council (GREAT food & service, panel talk...not so much. They seemed more about pushing their self-promotions rather than talk about the topic & how it relates to the industry) I did get to walk around the main pavilion & check out new comers & trends.
Here's what I saw:
.....LOTS of tufting. Seriously, I think we're about to jump the shark on this trend. It was everywhere!
.....ottomans & poufs in every size, shape & color
.....Made in America was hot & many new manufacturers this year as opposed to previous years. VERY excited about this!
For more on my thoughts, here's the audio from the DeAnna On Design radio show on High Point Market.
Summer Plumbing Tips:
Below are tips to maintain your home's plumbing throughout the summer from the fab plumbers at Roto-Rooter:
Consider the following to keep your drains flowing freely as PLUMBING corresponds w/MONEY & WEALTH according to Feng Shui!
That's it for now...almost done w/the rehab of a South Carolina home & getting ready to put it up for sale, buy a new property AND getting ready for jury duty. Seriously? I'm throwing out to the universe that this house sells fast & that I quickly find another home back in NC so I don't have to do this. Or, I'll just show up w/my copy of Liberty & Tyranny...that will probably make sure I don't get picked! Enjoy Mother's Day to all the moms out there...ESPECIALLY my Mom! Thanks for everything...all the love & support & even flying across the country to take care of the dogs while I travel for work!! Love you...DeAnna :)
