Date with this cutie...& more....

It is a fun week to be a design-lover here in Atlanta!  Yes, well I kinda have a "date" with this doll tomorrow...

...but I am paying for it!

He is doing a workshop tomorrow at Scott Antique Market.  I can wait to meet him, shop with him and Jaithan, and to soak it all in like a sponge!  As a beginning decorator, I want to surround myself with as many creative people, inspiring environments, and successful designers as possible.  I can't wait to share the fun with y'all!  I promise lots of pictures.

Then, when I get back, our friends Brad and Colleen, who are also superb photographers, are taking some "real" photos of our home.  I look forward to sharing those as well.  You have only seen pictures mostly from my camera phone, and I am no expert on cameras or lighting.  I can't wait to see how they come out!  Crosby-Twiss Photography 

Then, on the 15th, I am honored to be able to go to a meet and greet with two of the country's best!

Suzanne Kasler will be signing her book, Inspired Interiors, as well as launching her new line with Ballard Designs...I can't wait!

Then, on the same night (I hope I can keep up!) I am going to a meet-and-greet with Jonathan Adler at Lee Kleinfelter's store, Pieces Inc.

Also, this week I'll post more of our kitchen renovation.  Hope you're having a great weekend!  Oh, and Zooey was the best!

 It poured on us...but rain just makes it more romantic, no?  We stayed at Atlanta's W Hotel Midtown....pics to come (not impressed with their decor...I felt they were trying too hard, you know?)

Also, I am beyond flattered and grateful to Kirsten Simply Grove , Jennifer Newlywed Diaries and Jesse Good Girl Gone Glad   That is so sweet of you to feature our home...

Enjoy the day!  Julie
