Editor's Note: Today I am wearing Pilcro jeans, Krizia silk top, and Banana Republic kitten heels.
Today we had a great trim and fabric meeting with one of our favorite reps Jayne at Culp & Associates. Samuel & Sons is my favorite line of trim so I always get so excited to see what they have added that is new! The new trims in the line were incredible. We ordered all the books for our trim library and it sparked ideas for several jobs. She also showed us some new fabric additions from several different lines and had different color palettes pulled together. One of my favorite parts of my job is choosing fabrics! So I always get very excited when I get to see the latest additions to lines. Some day I would love to have my own fabric line. If I keep working till I am 85 maybe I will have time! Here are the gorgeous things that we got to see today! Happy Thursday everyone! We are supposed to have a cold front tomorrow--Yippee! Maybe the first fire of the season? That would make me very happy!
Gorgeous wide tapes with a raised velvet design!
Gorgeous printed silk tapes that takes on so many different applications depending on the color!
The top trims here is so interesting--it was made out of coconut wood. How incredible is that?!
This blue palette of fabrics was so gorgeous and would make such a stunning family room or study!

Steel Magnolia Tip # 79: My grandmother taught me that when you strongly dislike someone to find one thing about that person that you like and only concentrate on that one thing. You will be a happier person for it!
Last night for dinner was one of my favorites salmon with broccoli. Lean, mean, and wonderful!
This song will always remind me of my daughter Riley. For some reason it plays a lot when I am around her!
