HGTV's Shannon Quimby


Last weekend was a beautiful if not slightly chilly Autumn day and my husband, son and I headed down to Drake Park along the river to walk through the Antique Fair...
I found several special finds that I'm sure will show up in my art in a future project, but I think the most special thing that I found was a new acquaintence...At one of the booths was a very friendly and wonderfully creative person named Shannon Quimby...Shannon was at the Antique Fair to promote her new book and do a book signing...After a brief introduction, we realized that we had much in common and both loved to create...She was one of those kind of people that you wished lived next door or down the block so you could drop in and visit over a cup of tea and swap stories...It was a delight to meet her and before we left she signed a copy of my newly purchased book...Her book is called Color, Create, Decorate...She has been featured on HGTV and will be having her own show on HGTV in the near future...http://www.shannonquimby.com/
One of my favorite things in her book was putting a drinking fountain in her house for little ones...Just think how many glasses you wouldn't have to wash!
I hope to run into you again Shannon! It was so nice to meet you :0)

That's such an awesome idea! Okay, you should design something that looks decorative yet easy to clean and deal with ....one that is outdoor friendly (for those who have the basketball hoops in their driveway and one that looks perfect in a kitchen...then sell the idea to Kohler. :) oxox
