TGIFiles - 20 April 2012

Blogger is different. Those of you on Blogger, have you adjusted? And holy moly, I'm coming up on my year anniversary in May. I can't even believe it. I'll save more of my thoughts on blogging for when that time comes.

This week has flown right by and I'm quite excited that it's Friday. I've got a client meeting tomorrow morning that I'm very excited about and my e-design project is coming along really well, but we've had a few changes to the plan and I'll give you an update next week.

A few fun clips from the week for you...

~ Set your DVR for Design Wars today (Friday) at 1pm EST on HGTV. My friend Lori is going to be on. Go Lori! I'm so excited to see Lori on TV and to see what she comes up with for the show. You may remember Lori as my first guest that I invited over for my Tools of the Trade series.

~ The colors in this print are so pretty. I've featured a few of Mai Autumn's pieces here before, but this one always catches my eye when I'm looking through my Etsy favorites.


~ And my homegirl Cathy has done real good. I haven't been able to get these built-ins out of my head all week. But you have to go over to see the before photo and the sketch that Cathy brought to life. If this were my house I would never leave this room. I might just stick this into the "someday" files for me.

I've got magazines piling up so hoping to get some reading in this weekend. We also have a reservation with a group of friends for Talula's Table, which according to my hubby is the toughest reservation in America. You have to call a year in advance to make the reservation. It's one large table in the entire place and all part of the farm to table movement. I'll try to snap a few photos to show you next week. 

Have a great weekend!

  6. I love those built-ins, but what really caught my eye was the styling of them. So interesting and fun! Hmmm... you have me curious about the e-design changes - can't wait to see them... but what I'm dying to see are you pics from you're dinner out. It sounds incredible! Have a great time, and a truly awesome weekend... I'll be trying to catch up on my magazine stack right along with you! :-)

  10. I just added that print to my favorites on Etsy. It's gorgeous! As for the new blogger, I immediately switched back to the old interface and haven't had the courage to try again with the new. I don't do well with change and it just confused me!
