Cat Daddy and I went to Carolyn Westbrook's Summer Market" preview Friday evening. She did a fantastic presentation under the trees. When we arrived, she and Joe(her hubby) were busy as bees schmoozing and selling, as were Linda and Ludmil, but they grabbed a moment to grab us. You see, here in Texas(and in the south) it doesn't matter if you just saw someone 30 minutes earlier at the DQ, you still have to hug as if it's been ages. It's just the way we hang. But, I digress. Carolyn's signature style inside is poetry, but placed outdoors it becomes magical and dreamy. Her bed linens are among my top favorite things. Carolyn doesn't spot a trend, she starts one. While waiting for the crowd to thin out, I got a chance to sit on the porch and chat it up with old friends Heidi(Cloverleaf Boutique-Ardmore) and Portia(Garden Party-Dallas) and new friends Amy(Funky Monkey-Keller). All of these ladies have a unique spin and their shops are a must see. Linda and Ludmil's area of the garden was equally lovely. Linda really does practice what she preaches. It was beautifully displayed down to the last detail. Even though it was about a 100 degrees, she didn't allow her candles or herself to droop. She was looking cool and crisp as if it was 75 degrees. well, I'll wrap this up with a Happy Anniversary to T and hope you like the pix. Later-Debbie
