I am still sorting through the 700+ images I took at High Point, and trying to assemble them into some sort of order so that I can post about the trends that I saw.
I had two highlights of my day today.I took Connor to the local DIY dog bath. I’ve always been happy to pay for someone to do this, but when I heard that there was a doggie wash a few blocks from my house, I decided to do it myself. Let’s just say that Connor wasn’t happy, I wasn’t happy and we were both soaking wet when all was said and done.But Connor is so soft now and his fur is all fluffy.
The second highlight of my day was attending a lecture at Evergreen House by the Devoted Classicist, John Tackett. His lecture was on “A Devotion to Classicism: The Enduring Popularity in Decorative Arts”, a subject about which John is passionate.His lecture was filled with gorgeous examples of classic architecture and design from Monticello and the Hermitage to the Kluge Mansion. I’ve e-mailed back and forth with John since he started his blog, The Devoted Classicist, about 18 months ago. It was such fun to meet him in person and chat.
Also, thanks to Diane who drove down from New Jersey for the lecture and who was kind enough to introduce herself to me, and to Sally Steponkus, who brought her “crew” up from DC for the lecture. It was great to meet you all!
