Coastal Style...

On Sunday my friends Kate and Lisa and I went to a free decorating class titled Simple Updates for Easy Living at Pottery Barn. It was fun...reinforced a few things and learned a thing or two. They gave us a 10% coupon for Pottery Barn that is good for a week. They have more classes coming up...check out their site to see if they are being held in a store near you.

As we entered the store I spotted this book called Coastal Style. My dream is to live on the water...the Pacific coast. I perused it while we were waiting for class to start. I had a gift card for Barnes & Noble so we headed over there after class and I bought the book. I have lots of decorating books and re-read them each at least twice a year.

Thanks for stopping by...

I was just thinking of getting rid of my decorating books and then thought I too should at least read them one more time before I send them away. Nice post. No Pottery Barn around here. One of my favorite "Friends" episodes is about Pottery Barn and buying the furniture of "Yore".
