Hurricane Sandy blew in this week leaving a path of destruction up and down the East Coast and we’re on Day 5 of no power (which also means no phone, no Internet, no heat and no water!) But, thankfully, our families are fine and while it does take some time and patience to get around (and we’re going a bit stir crazy with the boys out of school!), we’re faring better than many.
Given that many events (including Halloween!) have been rescheduled for next week, you might be looking for something to do to break up the monotony of checking the electric company’s website to see when power will be restored. Rooms With A View in at the Southport Congregational Church is still on and the twelve designer vignettes are sure to take your mind off of the past week.
We’re looking forward to seeing what the designers (the likes of Allison Caccoma and Bachman Brown) did for this year’s theme, “Design on a Shoestring.” We know blogging gal pal, Lisa Ehrlich’s room will be fabulous, as will Paola Salinas’ from Style Never Sleeps.
Perhaps we’ll even get a chance to meet Thom Filicia, the honorary chairman, who used our fiddle fig tree in his vignette two years ago!
So if you need something fun to pass the time, you know where to find us… For more information about the event, click here!
P.S. We hope to be back and blogging next week as power comes back to our neck of the woods. In the meantime, we hope you all are safe and sound!
