There is so much great media coverage coming out about the Junior League of Hartford Show House 2012, it's almost hard to remember how bad the before pictures looked! And believe me, the pictures don't do justice to the amount of dirt, bugs and general disarray the majority of the spaces contained. My third floor bedroom space was not as bad as most, but still needed an amazing amount of work! See these before shots? Yikes!
Notice the floor? The previous rug pad was down for so long, it disintegrated and stuck to the floor! That white-ish rectangle is waffle-weave bits, melded into the paint. Ugh!

And so you, my Dear Readers, are left without a new post. The ideas are swirling in my brain, awaiting their chance at freedom.
Real life connections trump those in the virtual world every time. While I do treasure my virtual connections, the immediacy of those around me each day in the flesh cannot be ignored. I am hopeful August will afford me the opportunity to share some of my summer finds and adventures.
For today, I leave you with these two events to look forward to:
Designer Spaces & Market Places returns for a second year, and it's going to be amazing! Save the date for our Passport Party:
And this, spotted at WestFarms, made my heart do a little jig!
But don't wish away the summer — go out into the world, enjoy, and be sure to laugh!
