The dogs LOVE the snow (both Madison and Samantha lived in Minnesota, so they're accustomed to the white stuff). I couldn't resist a few photos...
Here is Mr. Tilghman, looking quite dignified (you'd never know he was looking for ice or sticks to eat a few moments earlier).
Miss Samantha remains ball-obsessed, regardless of the weather (that is a tennis ball in her mouth).
Miss Madison is on the hunt for someone to play with.
Tilghman and Madison frolicking...
Kaylee is not a big fan of getting her paws cold, but once she discovered she could eat the snow, she was a bit more enthusiastic.
As I mentioned last week, I also had the opportunity to attend the Eddie Ross~Larson Juhl event. Sadly I had a meeting today and missed the Scott's tour but look forward to reading others' recaps!
The tables, not surprisingly, were decorated beautifully. Sorry, I realized after the fact that I have no photos of the bites of food, but here's the wine!!
Tables had simple teacup and saucers with flowers (in florist foam- we checked) "framed" by a gold frame.
Eddie's talk was quite interesting and they showed some unbelievable gorgeous frames. He was quite personable, friendly, enthusiastic and of course, quite knowledgeable. Eddie discussed some of the cliches of hanging art (and one of my favorite quotes, while discussing kitchen art, "when in doubt, just hang a chicken.") My key takeaways- personalize it, make it meaningful to you, and mat/frame it to fit the space (item) to avoid the Pottery Barn catalog look.
A bonus- I got to meet Claire, of High Gloss Blue, which was quite exciting.
One of the most fun moments was the sneak peak into their Artaissance studio. I apologize for sounding like an advertisement for them, but it's pretty neat!
They take a high-quality photo of a painting/etching/book with this camera. Because of the high-level of detail the camera picks up...
...they are able to print the image in a large format- and on paper or canvas. For full disclosure, I did receive a print of a Biltmore chair as a gift. Because they have the images digitally, the studio can change colors giving a totally modern look to an antique piece.

Here's an example of what you could do (obviously not all of these at once):
Clockwise from top left: Biltmore Ironwork Tile; Morning, Floating and Awakening by Nichole Sloan; Memento Circle in Midnight by Amy Butler; Poppy III, VII, VIII by Jill Meyer.And of course, I had to get the requisite blogger/celebrity photo. I missed getting one with Jaithan, who was in attendance as well, and quite the charming gentleman (as was Eddie!).
How was your weekend?
