I'm Back....

My trip to Atlanta was a big success!!
And Scotts was fantastic! Last time I went I left empty handed. This time I ran out of room in my car and had to leave some good stuff behind. Next time, if there is a next time (because I am exhausted) I am getting a trailer.
I'll post a few of my finds tomorrow but I had to show you my favorites...


Four of these!!!
Did you ever think spun fiberglass could look so good? Looks a lot like these on 1st Dibs. I am a happy girl.
And the best part of the trip? All the bloggers I got to finally meet in person!!

Kathy from My Interior Life, Jenny from My Favorite and My Best and me.
I need to get Jenny to teach me how to pose.
I also ran into Eddie and Jaithan and Emily, who could not have been nicer, but I didn't get a picture, so you will just have to take my word.

Friday night we meet for dinner and were joined by Angela from The Painted House, Sherry from Design Indulgence (Sherry has been a successful decorator for years and was full of great ideas and advice), me, Becky (Kathy's cute friend) and Kathy. We had such a good time and I can't tell you how nice everyone was. I was especially thrilled to finally meet Kathy since we have been e-mail/ blog buddies for over a year now. It was just like shopping with an old friend. Loved it!!
Thanks everyone for a great weekend!! xo Sissy

  5. Sissy, I just posted a lot of the same photos of the trip so it's like a rerun over at MIL. I SO enjoyed meeting you! I couldn't have had more fun! I'm still dreaming of your chairs - they are so unique and I just checked them out on 1st Dibs. Wow, you really did get a bargain!

  9. What a good group of ladies that are from your territory down and around Atlanta. Nothing better than meeting up with a bunch of great people who share the same passion for design, decor and finding a great treasure...which by the way I LOVE your new chairs. The chairs look identical to the one in Summer Thornton's office.

  15. You scored with those chairs! I hope you sell them and make a bazillion dollars!!! Dinner was great fun and if an airport needs another runway for those big jets they can always use my forehead.

  18. So glad you found so many wonderful things! Can't wait to see the rest! Scott's is a wonderful place and you could not have had better dinner companions than Sherry and Angela.

    I have lived in Atlanta for 6 years and just recently discovered Scott's and the wonderful blogging world. I know you don't know me, but Julie from Milk and Honey Home told me about your blog and I so enjoy it!
