“Tie Chair” on Apartment Therapy

From last week’s family Motor Coach (my peeps call it “The MC”) trip to Alabama, Gadora posted one lone phone pic of the coming-together “tie chair” on her Facebook page. Days on the road with The South’s spotty cell service produced a certain panic I’d never be online again, but I distracted myself from cyber space with some very real hands-on stitching of the seat. When I finally reached a more reliable hot spot, I found Adrienne Breaux of All Things Austin Design had inquired about featuring said chair, upon completion, on Apartment Therapy< click to read her article.

Uh. Yeah. That would totally rock!! Back in Texas Gadora supplied Adrienne with a few photographs, while sorting out the process for a handy “how-to” write-up. It’s wildly appropriate her post referenced “granny chic decor” as the Alabama trip included TWO of MINE: 1) “Grammie” – 85 years old – who traveled in The MC with us, and 2) “Grandmother” – 90 – who we were heading to see. Gadora has some good genes.

THANK YOU ADRIENNE for your continued support.

Folks, today was a BIG day. I’ve always been fond of Hump Day. I’m still panting. Received an email on Monday that one of my Animal Prints made it into the magical hands of an Editor at DailyCandy and they LOVED it. They were fact-checking. Gadora knew to get ready.

Above is a snippet, and here is the IN DOG WE TRUST story… (< click it!) Needless to say when I awoke (über early with anticipation), I headed straight to my inbox. And there they were. YOUR pet pictures.

Chihuahuas. Labradors. Labradoodles. A Vizsla. A Wheaten. A dearly-missed Whippet. Could I paint a horse? Half-breeds. Mutts. Calico Cats. Etc. Etc. Etc. And along with each precious email came an even better story. Gadora had immeasurable fun today talking with you about your pride in your pets. Next, I’m off to paint them…

DC, you ARE Top Dog. The Cat’s pajamas. The Bee’s knees. And quite possibly the Clam’s garters.  And I thank you.
