MC, who came up with a new meaning for MC this afternoon.....Master Chauffeur, "chauffeured" me to Scotts Antique Market this afternoon. (I am wondering if I can drive---better get myself out on the road for a trial run?)
Sherry Hart, who has the great blog, Design Indulgence, http://designindulgence.blogspot.com/ mentioned she would be helping a friend at one of the booths. What a great opportunity for me to meet another crazy Blogger! And---Sherry is one of my favorites!!
It didn't hurt that Sherry was helping out her friend Sudi, with Home Accent Inc., who makes yummy, gorgeous pillows! In the back of my mind I thought...Just maybe, I could find the perfect pillows for our sofa that would finish the room?
The top "Pearly" Velvet fabric is on my slipper chairs, the Herringbone on the large club chair, the soft Blue Ultra Suede are the drapery panels in the adjourning kitchen "office" space, that blob of white is the Cotton fabric on the sofa (which is where the pillows will go) the paint swatch is Sherwin Williams' Silver Strand that is on all our walls, and the bottom swatch is the fabric MC made the drapery panels for our Great Room and Dining Room . I WAS READY!
Sherry and I spotted each other at the exact same moment. I guess our blog profile pictures work!
I have to tell everyone who doesn't know Sherry, that she is a jewel.... even more fun than what comes off from her blog! MC went and did his thing-------------- and left me to chat with Sherry and to do all sorts of budget damage! Sherry and I shared great "Blog" stories! Such a fun time! Can't wait to do it again!
Budget damage part..... I spread out my swatches in front of all the beautiful pillows. My eye went to a couple of pillows right away, one especially. When Sherry explained that the one I liked would "marry" all the fabrics in the room....THAT WAS IT....I had found my pillow. AND THERE WERE TWO!!
Thank you Sherry....I appreciate your help this afternoon in so many ways.
ONE AT EACH END OF THE SOFA WITH ONE BLACK PILLOW ON ONE SIDE
Sherry suggested a deep blue throw to bring out the blue in the pillows . I have a throw (not the exact right color) I will use until the right one comes along.
BEST PART OF STORY....
SHERRY IS SO SO GREAT
SHE BOUGHT THE PILLOWS FOR ME.....
she wrote her personal check for them...I didn't have cash. What's cash!
and haven't had a check with me in years....THEY DON'T TAKE Visa , MC or Amex...
now....Sherry has trusted me to mail her a check!!!!!!!!
ps...her eye brows are beautiful.....
