If you live anywhere in Georgia I hope you’ll join me for the first of three fun signings I have coming up in the next week. The first event is this Thursday night, Nov. 6, from 5-8 pm. in Decatur. My old friend Marie Mealor–who many of you will know as the former owner of the fabulous FINAL TOUCH BOOKS AND GIFTS and later, MEALOR-BENZ Antiques, also in Decatur, is hosting a holiday open house and gift show at her beautiful art-filled home. In addition to having the newly re-issued BLUE CHRISTMAS which I’ll be signing and personalizing, Marie and friends are offering all kinds of gifty goodies, including antiques, framed original art, lamps, home accessories and much more. If you’ve ever seen Marie and Annie’s booth at the Scott Antique Mart you’ll know just how chic and elegant their offerings are. In addition, Marie’s talented daughter Stephanie Corder will be accepting commissions for her charming children and pet portraits. Please do join us Thursday night. Believe me–you’d pay admission just to see Marie’s home. I’ve been buying art and antiques from her for years, and she even much of the fluffing for me last year before our home was on the Avondale Holiday Tour of Homes. Did I mention there’ll be wine? and nibbles? Above are some photos of just a tiny portion of the offerings. Don’t miss it!
