I took a two week hiatus from publishing this blog because I was so busy back in NC. I hope you missed seeing our weekly Wednesday post. (If you didn’t, don’t tell me 🙂 )
A week was spent at our Lake Gaston home doing maintenance after a very busy summer rental season. We were truly amazed at how well the house weathered 20 different groups of vacationers with a total of over 150 quests. Whew! Thank you VRBO/Homeaway guests for taking such good care of Blue Heron Getaway!
Here are a few pictures of our lake!
Next, it was off to visit with my BFF Patsy outside of High Point. We always seem to pick up right where we left off. That is what you do with best friends! Each High Point market she provides me a wonderful private room, meals and best of all her love and friendship. Thank you, Patsy!!!
Here are a few groups of things that attracted my eye at the High Point Market .
LIGHTING:Large Edison bulb (9″H) fixtures shown at Emdee International. Contemporary and sleek pendants from Lite Source that can be grouped together or used separately. Oversized pendants, 34″ H in gold or silver finishes.
New and different art glass by Kristine Daniel Designs of Canada.
NEW COLOR COMBO:
Global Views has always been the leader in displaying an up and coming color scheme. Here are several of their vignettes in red, black, gold and grey. I love the contrast and visual impact! What do you think?
Little ottomans that can be grouped together or pulled up for extra seating have always attracted my interest. The pearl color ottomans by Norwalk Furniture can be used alone or in combination of two or four to create different shapes. The chair and ottoman with a great curved apron are new introductions by Company C with Norwalk Furniture. The small red ottomans in a classic style are by CR Laine.
I took about 900 pictures in a short 2 1/2 days. So these are just the tip of the iceberg. Can you see using any of these new products in your home? Which piece is your favorite?
Missed hearing from you lately. Send your comments!
All the best!
