HoKay Kampers!!!!!
I hope you're sitting down, because I have some very exciting news!!!!!
I just signed up for an adult education class in.....

wait for it.......

stand up comedy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm trying to learn all the stuff I didn't have time for when
 I was slaving away for my clients.
I must admit.....
I am a big show off.
My first degree was in drama, 
before I went back for three more years of college in interior design.
I could write a routine about decorating.
My goodness, 
my knees tremble when I think of all the practical applications of my new knowledge.
Sort of like a degree in philosophy!

Yesterday I went to the Boston Design Center to hear a talk by 
Traditional Home Magazine's senior decorating editor, Krissa Rossbund.
I sorta had to go, since she and I have become friends over the years.
(We both like to watch reality TV, and can talk for hours about the Real Housewives....ALL OF THEM!!!!!)
We are very highbrow.
During her talk, she spoke about wanting to publish rooms with more color and pattern and found objects.
She wanted to get away from rooms that look so "pat"
At the end of the talk, she made the mistake of asking if anyone had any questions.....
(the room was packed)
of course I waved my hand and said
 "I do, I do, I have a question!!!!! So, if I understand the point you were making.....MY LOOK HAS COME BACK INTO STYLE???????"

Afterwards, I dragged drove her back to my condo so that she could relax before her flight out of Boston.
She had never seen my new home before.
I hadn't bothered to send her pictures, because I thought there was too much crap stuff in it.
Well, she loved it, and whipped out her IPhone  and started taking lots of scouting shots.
So, let's see what they want to do with this place where I live.
Once we were done with the boring talk about my decorating, we got back to the good stuff, and I grilled her about her personal life.
But I'm not telling any tales out of school.
I am a good friend.
Boy the stories I could share!!!!!

Today, my bidness partner, Kris, and I are heading out to an auction.
We are trying to snag a table for the left side of her bed.
Then I can show you pictures of it, and you can all comment on how much you love it!!!!!
There was a mirror we were interested in.....
I've been looking for one to hang over her chest of drawers at the foot of her bed.
You have to be careful in auctions.
It's always best to preview the items.
Kris drove out yesterday to look at what we were interested in, and this is what she found.....
If you look carefully in the catalog picture, you can see the broken part, but it was really easy to miss.
It's always best to check this stuff out in person, or in mirror, depending on what you're lookin' at.
The table we want for the left side of her bed is this one.....
It's going to need some TLC, but Kris knows a good guy who repairs veneer.
It will replace the chest that is to the left of her bed right now, as we speak, this very moment.
Hopefully, we will bring this table home today and move this old chest out.
And then I'll paint it.
And then we'll sell it.
And then we'll be rich!!!!!
On that note,
Latah, Gatah
