Remember my Nate Day post ?
Well, thanks to the Moggit Girls and Create Girl twittering about Nate’s new show, over 90 bloggers got invited to be in the audience for a taping of his show on Tuesday. I never knew it was such hard work, all that waiting and clapping and smiling !
He was delightful and charming and took about 30 minutes after the show to answer questions. Kate from Centsational Girl asked a great question about DIY vs hiring a professional when it comes to decorating your home. Nate said he loved the creativity that comes from decorating with a smaller budget but he recommends calling a professional when:
1. You tried it and ruined it !
2. You are overwhelmed with choices and need help to get back on track.
3. You are dealing with anything that operates, like plumbing or electrical. Or drilling holes in your walls for drapery (OK, I added that part) ;)
I wish him lots of success with his new show !
Then came the really fun part….. Camila and The Nest Magazine organized an after party for all of us at The Collective. It was great to meet so many wonderful, talented designing women ! I just wish I had time to meet ALL of them.
Wednesday we wandered around the garment district and did some window shopping.
I must have seen 100 fabric stores !
My son requested a black fedora from NYC and we finally found one ! Here’s Mr. Stitches modeling it in the airport where we spent 15 hours because our flight was cancelled after sitting on the runway for 3 hours !
Can you say “glad to be home” !
