Day 3 and butterfly madness.......



Today was our longest day yet! Just got back into our room around 9:10pm and ordered a room service snack. It's too late for a real meal.


We are finding that it's much more fun and entertaining to document the pure frightening things of the world! In our next to last showroom, while waiting for our order to print, we engaged in a discussion with two male designers (floral, it would seem.....) who were pained because they could not find a certain butterfly that they had seen. Luckily for them, we gave them at least 3 main showrooms where they would be able to feast upon butterfly after butterfly, as many as they could possible imagine, each one more beautiful ( bee-ooo-tee-ful) than the next. You decide which one you like, let us know and how many you think we should order......


#1 Fuchsia girly-girl


#2 Green open wing

#3 Red Exotic


#4 Beautiful beautiful purple......


#5 Coat of Many Colors


#6 Blue Bug



#7 Green With Envy



#8 Just plain Spooky


#9 Spring Prom


#10 King of the Lime



#11 Princess Green Wing


I guess it's fair to say to say that we have discovered another trend..................

And, we're glad that we could have been of service to the boys who were searching. I do, however, think that this may prove the "glitter theory" to be incorrect. There are some things even glitter cannot make right.

As far as something absolutely fabulous for you to feast your eyes on, we came across these ornaments in the most delicious shades of pink. Almost pomegranate/pink. The color took our breath away and we pondered just where and how we could work in such a theme. Maybe next year......



Check out the board in the Jim Marvin Showroom with all sizes of this dramatic pink shade, matt, shiny, big,little, you just have to love them all.



Many of you have heard me speak of Jim Marvin. He is a darling man who created this visionary showroom of about 15 rooms, each with its own theme and color. We always stop in during the first day or two for inspiration. He is a real Southern gentleman with style! He is a big part of the White House Christmas design every year. Linda and I decided that want to help him with that project one of these years!

So, there you have it! The third day of "fabulous finds"......well, at least the boys thought so.


More on day 4 coming tomorrow. And for the record, the feet are a little bit worse than the day before.

Stop it!!! I don't know that I would have believed all this butterfly madness without your photo-documentation. I knew I didn't like butterfly motifs...

Kudos on getting a self-portrait with Jim Marvin!

Hi Susan,
Just remember me when you decorate the white house. I can fetch the lattes and find your shoes and things at the end of the day. (Hint Hint)

My vote goes to the "Green with Envy" insect--definitely the most creepy.

The butterflies are just hard to believe. . . .

I really hate butterflies. They remind me of girls who wear too much purple, know too much about Disney princesses, and think that Twilight is quality fiction. Gross.

the only thing I love about butterflies is the name in french....pavillon...but if I had to pick I think i like the small pink one...I think the bigger they get the scarier they seem...at least to moi. Oh wow...sorry about the feet, but it is a painful bittersweet with all those wonderful things to admire and see.
