Last week I went to the furniture show in High Point. I took a total of three photos. Don't ask me why so few. Perhaps I didn't see anything of interest. Maybe there was not much new. It could have been that I was focused on researching and studying the market because of a project I'm working on, but whatever the reason I rarely pulled my camera out of my pocket. Several days later and now looking back I'm trying to remember what/if anything stuck with me. There seemed to be a extreme amount of pillows and lots of framed things. Also, going main stream seemed to be the Mary Macdonald/Kelly Wearstler L.A. English vibe - although the furniture component of that trend looked very cheap. The whole thing seemed to be very decorator instead of designer.

|The photo sucks, but I love these KFC hanging fried chicken buckets.|

|It was some kind of visitor and folk art center. |

a gathering place for old people.
|I wanted to drive. C would not let me drive. |
(He has not recovered from our trip to Italy when I was in control of
the 5 speed Fiat through the Tuscan hillside.
There were few guardrails and he closed his eyes most of the time.)
|So no High Point pictures, but I got lots of pictures on mountains.|
|And more mountains.|
|Until finally I got bored and started taking pictures of my car in the mountains.|
|A lesbian ranger (redunant) told us about a beautiful waterfall. |
She said it was only a short 100 yard hike. She lied.
It was a short 100 yard hike to the beginning of the trail.
From there is was about 900 miles straight up to the
|But we did see beautiful scenery.|
|Which I guess was refreshing since my idea of a vacation usually involves|
a tequila bar and a roulette wheel.
|We got back in the car and drove to Asheville. |
I'll tell more about that in the next posting.
