Quick post

I have decided that my blog needs to be revamped so I have enrolled in a really exciting class for blogging. It is being taught by Holly from Decor 8 and she has teamed up with Leslie from A Creative Mint.

Both are incredible bloggers that I really think are fabulous.

Every time I receive a new post from Leslie it is filled with such amazing visual eye candy, that the photos usually end up on my inspiration boards.

So keep reading as I hope that my blog will be turning a corner soon.

New York City

Just got back from a quick trip to NYC. Had a blast very inspiring, just what I needed to cure those February blahs.

I have not been to the city in a while so I did a bit of site seeing. One of my favorite places that we just so happened to stumble upon in Soho is Rachel Ashwell’s Shabby Chic Couture store. I could have spent hours in the store.

Love the tags. I just wanted to buy something so I could have the tag

The next day was total business at the Design Center.

Here are some of my favorites

This is my all time favorite show room. The textures together are just amazing.

Close up of one of the pillows. The beads are actually metal springy things  that create the design on the velvet ribbon.

Fun work trip, brought  home  tons of new fabrics and design ideas.
