I'm on my way to the Gold Rush Days in Oronoco, MN. Check out the Oronoco site...http://www.goldrushmn.com/. Sue Whitney, co-author of Decorating JunkMarket Style & Junk Beautiful, will be there. Some people fawn over movie stars and athletes...my "superstars" include people like Sue Whitney, Sarah Richardson of "design inc.", Helen Buttigieg of "neat" and "We Organize U", Martha Stewart, and my most recent discovery, Craig Kettles of "C designs" (love his work!). I plan to be first in line to get Sue's autograph! Per her advice in a Country Home article, I will arrive at sunrise to get the full experience. Call me crazy, but few things can get me out bed early (if I can even sleep the night before because I am so excited!).
One more thing...I stopped at one of the Pottery Barn stores in the St. Paul/Minneapolis area on the way here. Got a screamin' (and I mean scre-e-e-e-e-eamin') deal on their organic mattelasse duvet covers and euro shams! Whoop!
