Yikes - the National Home Show is next week!
If my posts get a bit spotty over the next few days, it's not because I'm ignoring you, dear and faithful reader. It's because I'm madly busy getting ready for my seminar at the National Home Show next week. My topic is "Save or Splurge". In it, I look at whether and when to spend a bit more on everything from linens to lamps, from kitchen counter-tops to appliances. I’ll also have tips and tricks for saving money on decor projects large and small. I'll be presenting on Saturday, February 21 at 1 p.m., and will have lots of giveaway goodies. Apparently, some other home decor types will also be at the show. A couple of fellows by the name of Colin and Justin are threatening to show up. (Sure, they're cute, creative and wildly talented, but do they know how, as do I, to make rice pudding with brown rice and white chocolate - I don't think so!) In truth, I'm dying to meet Colin and Justin, as I've got a few questions about a planned design for my bedroom which revolves around naughty-pine and macrame wall art. I'll probably drop by their presentation, along with that of Dream Home designer Janette Ewen, who will be showing visitors how to customize their decor in a few easy steps! (Come to think of it, she's cute, creative and wildly talented too - but I'm almost positive she doesn't do rice pudding, either.)
