  1. Too many great events, too little time. I will for sure be Junking-need some glass vases to add to my collection and … maybe start a new collection. Hope to get to the creative connection and Jennifer Davis and Amy Rice’s Pop up gallery. I also want to get to the hand made tile festival.

    What are your must do’s this weekend?

  2. So much to do so little time! I need a clone to keep up with all the action. Also…the AIA’s Homes by Architects tour is this weekend! There was a fabulous kick off event with some of the architects & homeowners at Room & Board last night.

    1. I agree! Seems like EVERYTHING is happening this weekend! A great feature event post on Homes by Architects tour tomorrow!
