This little piggy went to market, this little piggy went to... Ahem ! Excuse me . . . Sorry, I got slightly carried away by all the wonderful new things we saw.
I did make it to market in Dallas this week and my favorite assistant Aubrie tried her best to keep me in control, but you know how it is when a girl sees all the new goodies- well , like Christmas morning for a four year old. Anyway, since a small vacation called me away early, we had to miss the opening day of temporaries ( bummer ) but managed
to snap a few of the best views for you. And more on our little sneak away later...
Because we only had one day to scope out the goods for you- We hit a few highlights- some of the showrooms that we knew had the most creative and colorful displays.
One of the showrooms owned by J. Mackie, Ltd. never fails to disappoint , the owner is always ready to help you find what you are looking for. And his displays really draw you in.
Pottery so pretty you want to rearrange an entire room around it, Seriously !
If purple is not your color... try this on for a hot new shade.
With the new trend in neutrals moving away from beige and creams, and heading in the direction of grey, this lovely shade of tangerine is a natural to really make the room pop. Quite possibly
THE color of the year. ( Global Views)
Not your average display. Very appealing. Love the softness of the flowers added in to such strong architectural interest. Yummy! ( Global Views front window )
Enough for now. . we will do a second part with more photos later in the week. Let us know which colors are calling you this year.
Try and pick
your top two and let us know. We know it’s going to be difficult, but we know
you can do it.
Till next time-

About one week ago we were once again blessed with the love of a little, but powerful bundle.
He arrived a full week early, but at almost 8 lbs. 8 oz., Mama was happy he decided to come join the party a little early !
See what you think... he has kept us busy this past week, but it is a very welcome distraction. So, now it’s time to get back to work. New products to add . . . jobs to catch up on, but - it's more fun to kiss on babies..

Anyone in need of some garden ideas ?
Blue... Blue...love this shade of blue.
On the way home we found a fun stop off- even the median
across the street was entertaining. Such a beautiful nursery with color galore...
Even the birds would agree.
Inspiration at every turn, color galore and too many choices for the
average gardener. ( Which we are.. ) Now to head home and start some projects of our own. Maybe
a little sweet spot in the back yard ?
Till next time- enjoy the sights and sounds of Spring , and
and join her give away- A lovely book , Vintage by
Nina. It is worth a hop over to check out....
( you will love her blog as well )
