Started the day at 5:30 am with Drew Carney and a spot on the channel 8 morning news. Then dinner with Michael Payne of HGTV and. Large group of design friends, Frenchy and The darling Miss Arnica and Miss Heidi from my shop at Ya Hala Lebanese restaurant. Delish!!!....and a great deal if fun.
We are setting up today for this weekend's show. Come down to the expo center and check out the Serving Up Style section, benefitting Molly's Fund for Lupus!!!!! Our outdoor dining room is looking great!!!!
My favorite season........time for fall colors and falling leaves, time to pick apples and pumpkins....time to wear sweaters and berets and time to make soup! Fall in Portland is a lovely thing! YIPPEE!!!!!!
We ordered these outdoor lacquered butterfly chairs while in Chicago at the outdoor show last week They're for spring next year... we are getting an early start. The chairs are cast metal and we ordered them in the most fab Chinese orange with peacock blue outdoor chenille fabric!!!!! Yowza!!!
Anything in Paris. Things that do suck: the headcold that I got on the trip back. I am just crawling out from under my fog and getting back to work. Arnica and I have to put the shop back together after our big sale last week. So much new stuff to put out on the floor. Here's to a productive week!!!
