Atlanta Gift Show

So, I packed up my new car and drove to Atlanta for the Gift Show. Set up on Thursday and met Kate there. Our booth is so pink but looks so cute. I stayed with Laura and all the kids, so fun. The show was not amazing, but we met so many great people, including Ann Forget across from us with the cutest bags. She made the show fun. I had few orders by Tuesday but not enough to make it worth while and then Katherine from Flat of the Hill whipped around the corner and saved my life, again! She is so great and I am so honored to still have my stuff in her amazing store. Check out www.flatofthehill.com Drove to visit Ashley and Campbell on Tuesday and stayed with them. Claire Avery Gallery is almost finished and looks terrific.
There is a beautiful piece of furniture housing all the Kristin Pearce Designs necklaces in the gallery, so I am finally represented in Thomasville, Georgia!
Drove home the next day and stopped in Gainesville. It looks better than the last time, but not as good as I would imagine. I ate a slice of pizza from Leonardo's and it was delicious! Got home late Wednesday and was so glad to be home....

New Car and the Arrival of Georgia Walter

After many hours at the Saturn dealership, I left there around 7pm with my new car. I settled on a navy blue Saturn Vue with beige leather seats. It is so cute and drives great. I wasn't really even a tiny bit sad to say goodbye to the Volvo, which will make a nice taxi cab in South America. I drove straight to South Miami to meet Ashley and her Mom for dinner. Zaria was at the hospital and was waiting to go into labor. Of course, as soon as we ordered, they called and she was wheeled into delivery. We got there in time to see baby Georgia fresh from the delivery room, so beautiful and perfect. Everyone was so excited and it was so fun to be there.
