Day 1 at High Point wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. It started off wonderfully with a visit to the Williamsburg group. If you’re thinking the old dull muted colours of yesteryear, think again! (Click here for a story I wrote a few months ago.)
After that, I headed over to meet up with some friends to see Barry Dixon’s new line of furniture in conjunction with C2 paints.
As I stood in the parking lot, looking in my phone for the building number in broad daylight, I was mugged. Two people drove up in a truck, one got out and tried to grab my bag. I struggled a bit, the bag ripped and all of my things went flying! So all they got was a half of a canvas handbag, and maybe some Kleenex. I am fine, although I did fall down and scrape my knees and break the fingernails on one hand, but that’s all small.
Unfortunately, one of the casualties was my camera, which can still take pictures, but it’s cracked and I can’t download anything. So until I get back to Baltimore, no pix of my own.
After that adventure, I did manage to see Barry’s new line, which is gorgeous! And then I headed over to W. Schillig one of my sponsors. They make the most beautiful and sleek leather sofas.
From there, it was over to see the folks at HGTV who now have their own lines of fabrics, paints, floor coverings and furniture.
The evening ended up with a great cocktail party given by Architectural Digest where I saw lots of blog friends.
Monday holds lots of new adventures, but hopefully, it’s a lot calmer!
