what i wanted to say about this summer is how we had so many people join us on the boat and each one made the trip a little different. its nice to randomly meet a variety of people through sailing and being in the same bay or just the next boat in a marina……catching up with old friends who then introduce you too their new friends and then catching up with the new ones somewhere. i like that each season at the shows you do a quick catch up with your suppliers who then turn into friends that your glad to see and hear what they are doing. we met brian through my friend rose who was visiting her friend mary……….we go to see the begining of his new art project. great day and night!
what i love about this show is that its all about what YOU see. each time you take a lap of the halls something new pops into your fied of vision. mainly i think its nice not to think of trends and whats new……..its the idea anything can work as long as you love it and want to have it in your space. so display your own collection of stuff and be happy and proud.
we have been taking down sails, washing, cleaning
my friend simon and i were visiting our friend charlene mullens stand at maison & object . simon was demonstrating how to strangle the lovely lavender doorstop “bandit” the cat. the japanese buyers on the stand thought the cat was a pretend pet that you cuddle and stroke………a bit like the cafes you go to and pay for the pleasure of feline company. anyway they cried out in horror and simon had to pretend he was just playing with bandit. ha busted.
