On the Job with C: Thrift Studio Opening Night

I don’t necessarily call this work.  I mean, how could I?  Last Thursday I put on my party clothes and joined the Dallas design community and the committed staff of Dwell with Dignity for the grand opening of Thrift Studio.  It was a great night of product surprises, competitive shopping and happy mingling.  The food from Fluff Pop was divine.   Here’s are some of the vignettes.

And if you feel like you missed it all, don’t fret.  Thrift Studio Pop-Up Store will be open for 30 days, April 11 – May 10th, allowing you to buy some great designer goodies at incredibly low prices. Yesterday, my neighbor SK and I volunteered at the 10-2 shift and it rocked.  Just plan a visit of your own: The International 150 Turtle Creek Blvd, Suite 204 Dallas, Texas 75207. Hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 10 AM – 5:30 PM. See you there!

He does an incredible job and I would like to recommend him to any of you looking for a photographer to photograph your projects. I can’t imagine anyone that would be any easier to work with….}

On the Job with C: DWD Design Liaison

As many of you know, I get the joy of managing the Dwell with Dignity blog.  Every week I work with a team of super talented bloggers who volunteer their time and writing skills.  If you are looking for a DIY idea, some inspiration or just want to see what DWD is up to, be sure to sign up as a reader.  Along with the blog, I am also serving again as DWD Thrift Studio’s Designer Liaison. I’m so excited to see what this year’s designers reveal in their Spring vignettes.  We have a talented team that includes honorary chair, Ronda Carman, Jan Showers, Julio Quinones + Culp Associates, Mecox, Sarah Pickard + Robert Allen Design, Samantha Sano with SWOON, the studio and Tompkins Lloyd Interiors + David Sutherland.
