At Work: Salty Surprise

I came into work this morning to find a lovely little gift from Shaw Contract Group!

"Design so colourful, you can taste it".
What tastes more colourful than Magic Unicorn salt?

This is a great start to the day!
Thank you Deanne!

Travel: Georgia - Day Three (Part 2)

We were back to Barnsey Gardens by 2pm, giving us our first moment of down time.
What to do in the south? Why, go skeet shooting! Obviously.

Why yes, that is a golf cart fitted with a gun rack.
That's how we roll...

Travel: Georgia - Day Three

Day Three already!
I found myself with a little bit of time before breakfast, so I went for another walk through the Barnsley historic ruins. The night before was great, but it was even better to walk around and see the grounds in full daylight.

Travel: Georgia - Day Two (part 2)

... before leaving the historic Barnsley ruins, there was a little snack to get our evening started.

 Did I mention that this trip was all about food?

Travel: Georgia - Day Two

Back to the reason for this trip... Shaw Carpet!
At the design center, they had an awesome installation of both LVT and carpet. It was so striking.
They also had a great distressed metal wall.

Travel: Georgia - Day One

We went on a business trip to Georgia courtesy of Shaw Carpets. I was very excited, as I have never been to "the South" before.

Our trip started in Atlanta, in the Loews hotel.

365 Day Wreath: Jute Basic

Self imposed challenge time!

Today, I am making a basic jute (burlap) wreath out of a coat hanger and some jute winter tree cover.

First, I unwound a wire hanger. The best and easiest are the ones from the dry cleaner...
They use a cheaper quality hanger, and that makes it easier to manipulate (and I really like to manipulate stuff...)
