Happy Labor Day everyone. Welcome to Fall.
I am one of those who feel like September is the start of a new year.
And this September, my calendar already holds some very exciting adventures, what with BlogTour London 2 weeks away, and a trip to High Point Market, courtesy of Hooker Furniture Company, slated for mid-October.
I am not done. Following last spring’s social media contest to obtain grant money for National Landmark, the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum (BPMM)–which they won–, I was asked to join the board of the Bartow-Pell Conservancy. Thanks again to all of you who helped me with this effort. I am so excited to be a part of BPMM’s ongoing programming, and delighted to have a ringside seat for the garden restoration. Board duties begin this September.
Finally, after the year-end holiday blitz (I think the calendar year is a down hill slide once Halloween rolls around), I will be headed to Salt Lake City to attend the acclaimed Alt Design Summit Conference.
I feel so lucky to have these wonderful opportunities, and therein lies my current obsession with doors. As in, I wonder which ones will open during this “new” year and what lies behind them?
Who will hold the key?
