TCB down in the ATL

The last 10 days has been a big blur as I jam-packed a ton of things into my trip down to Georgia. A week ago Friday we drove straight to Athens for UGA Homecoming and AXO Parents’ Weekend.

I had the privilege of graduating from Georgia many moons ago and it’s so fun coming back to campus to visit my baby who, I can’t believe it, is a junior. Where does time go?

From there we headed up to Kennesaw for my father-in-law’s 80th birthday. You would never guess he was 80. On his big day (which btw was Veterans’ Day; very fitting since he is a retired Brigadier General) he wanted to golf, water ski and play tennis, all on his birthday. Water skiing in November?

Let me assure you I was the only sane one who did not get in the water. Here are the Basnett boys “warming up” with a little bourbon.

Next on the agenda was The Business of Design Conference. If you are an interior designer and you are not familiar with Kimberley Seldon and Business of Design, I suggest you check it out. I was lucky enough to attend these three priceless days of working on my business with the lovely ladies of Kandrac & Kole.

I am thrilled and a bit overwhelmed at the same time to implement the incredible things I took away from this group. Kimberley’s no-nonsense attitude toward the business side of the business was just what I needed. I came away invigorated and motivated to improve my business model not only for me, but more for my clients. Look for exciting changes at Vintage Scout!

I finally headed back up I75 to Ohio Saturday. Thank goodness for XM radio; I was able to listen to college football the whole drive. So to close out the weekend, hubby and I worked on getting the walls up to create a storage area at the loft.

I still have to paint them, but it will let me finish getting things put away down at Front Street. And yep, that’s a big mess.

Well, I guess that catches you up with me. I’m off to chill out and slow my mind down with a glass of wine and watch some Homeland. Do any of you watch that? We are kind of addicted to a lot of the Showtime series. Let me know if there’s any you might recommend. Maybe we could have a support group.

Have a great Monday! Debbie

 

Atlanta Market

Hi y’all! I’m doing a quick breeze through the Atlanta Home Furnishings Market.

Picking out a few things for the store and finding some goodies for clients. Here’s a little sneak peek of what was out there today.

I love this lamp. Yes, I love lamp. Does anyone else out there feel the same?

What an amazing pattern on this oversized chest. Its 55″ wide and 48″ tall. A statement piece if you have a home for it.

Lots of bling and sparkle. Ooh la la

I’ve got the perfect placement for this bench in mind. Now I’ve just got to make it happen.

There’s more to come, but for now I’ve got to lay my little head down to rest because tomorrow’s another big day. You see it’s off to Scott Antique Market to scout for more treasures.
