Yesterday was a fun day. I got to go shopping with Carla Birdsall, one of our workshop style students. She won a contest a while back to go shopping with me with a $1000 gift certificate from Interior Accents. Carla and her husband have a beautiful home that she’s going to be uploading pictures of. She came to our last workshop and she also registered for our Shop with Focus event because she wants to continue training her eye, so she’s going to be joining us at C.S. Wo next Saturday. With our schedules being so crazy, we finally got together.
We set off for Interior Accents in Gentry Pacific Design Center. Melody, who helped us, told me she really enjoyed our workshop and was hearing from some of her customers that they loved it too. Judy, the proprietor, said she was really disappointed because she had to work that day. They think it’s great we’re educating people how to shop because a lot of their customers need that extra help.
Back we went to Interior Accents and my favorite find of the day—three brass elephants, the hear no evil see no evil speak no evil trio, but elephants instead of monkeys and they were so cute! The see no evil elephant had his big old floppy ear covering his eyes, it was so adorable, a perfect touch of whimsy. I kept trying to push them on Carla, but they were too small in scale for her coffee table.
