Last year, Katherine, our photography manager, sent me a link to Holly Becker’s blog, www.Decor8blog.com. Holly is an American who lives in Germany with her husband. She shares what is happening in the world of decorating outside of the US (primarily). Some months ago, she announced that she would be publishing a decorating book, and wonders of wonders, the book was being released, and there was a book signing in the iconic Liberty store while I was in London. I applied for one of the limited seats and was one of the lucky ones chosen.
First, Holly spent half an hour talking about the book, the process of selecting the homes to be featured, the actual photo sessions, and answered questions from the group. Many of the 50 or so women in the audience were bloggers as well. Then we moved to the house wares department for the actual book signing where an additional crowd was waiting for her. I took photos, but the photos at Holly’s blog are so much better – take a look!
(And so ends Susan’s London adventures. Now, we can make believe we’ve been to London to take in all the sights ourselves, all the while, of course, practicing our British accents...oh, well, I’m still pretty jealous. How ’bout you?)
