BEAT.

I. am. beat. 
And the Cathedral Antiques Inspiration House JUST opened to the public on Sunday, so I’ve got 2 more weeks to go.

Between long install nights, last minutes tweaks, parties PLUS a full day of standing in some ridiculously high heels for 6 hours (I know, I did it to myself), I got home on Sunday night, showered & promptly fell into bed at 6:45 pm. 
But the Sunday opening was good.

Close to 500 people came through the house on the opening day and I got some great feedback…those who had seen it before were shocked at the transformation. It’s funny how God works things out, too…I am SO thankful that I ended up with the Apartment Entry Hall/Stairway and not the Telephone Nook that I originally wanted. People have to walk through my space to get to the apartment and it ended up being a perfect match to the upstairs space which was designed by Bryan Alan Kirkland. And when I say perfect match, I mean exactly…my drapes are the same color as his walls, and it was not planned since no one knew what I was doing until last week! Our spaces flow together seamlessly. 
So lots of traffic on Sunday, met some great new people & potential clients plus lots of blog friends came out to support me (and Sherry, Lori & Ally, too!) at the Press event on Thursday.

The house will be open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 11-5 for the next 2 weeks, so I hope those of you who are ATL-based will get a chance to stop by & see all of the amazing work that’s been done. 
If you plan to stop by, let me know–I’d love to see you there!

    Sherry’s comment is the funniest…you always hate to see me in high heels at “long-standing” events! Lol, well no worries, I learned my lesson that day.

    And to all of you guys, thank you so much for your support, comments & encouragement. You wouldn’t believe the emotional roller coaster this has been but I have to say, I am SO PROUD of myself. Can’t wait for you all to see pics!

    Xo,
