Next Stop, Chicago!

August 22, 2011

Hello everyone! I’m preparing for my flight to Chicago today but wanted to pop in quickly to thank everyone for attending the Boston Decorate Workshop + Signing at Anthropologie on Saturday. It was GREAT!!! I couldn’t believe how many showed up and all of the beautiful faces in the crowd — so friendly, so encouraging and very enthusiastic about the book which was such a delight. I signed books for 2.5 hours straight without a break – I couldn’t pause for a moment – I felt so energized by everyone’s warm welcome. I will post highlights from the Boston event once I get to Chicago and settle into my hotel, but for now, I’ll leave you with this photo of some books on display in store…

Next Stop, Chicago!

My next event is in Chicago tomorrow evening (details below) and I would love to meet you! Here are the details. If you can RSVP please do, but if not, this is open to the public so it’s also okay to just stop by and say hello to me and have your book signed – Anthropologie still has them in stock but they are sold out elsewhere and currently being reprinted for the third time. YAY!

Next Stop, Chicago!

I wish you a lovely day – I’ll be back later on with Boston highlights and more!

Chicago here I come!

    Ugh! I have a previous commitment tomorrow but am hoping to make it at some point. If you get a chance, be sure to hit up Sugar Bliss for a cupcake. Amazing!

      @Amanda – Hi! I won’t have time to go anywhere today and I leave at 5am tomorrow morning so I do hope you’ll come out tonight to join us at Anthropologie – I’d love to meet you and if you feel like bringing some cupcakes I won’t refuse you. We don’t have good ones in my city back in Germany – they try to recreate the American cupcakes but they taste like muffins!!!!

    Hi, Holly! I was planning to make the event in Boston but I had way too much work to do. I am sorry to have missed it! Who could imagine one of my favorite blogs and one of my favorite stores all in one? Darn! The good news is, I will be in St. Paul, so I’ll see you there! Good luck with the rest of your whirlwind tour!

    I have just got a copy of your book and I need to see it is awesome! it is not possible any tour in Europe?
    I have been following your blog for few months, it always gave me positive vibes, and it inspired me to create my own blog.

    Would be great some Edecorate tour in Europe :) I live in Czech Republic (even if I am Spanish) and I think lot of people fro Central Europe would like to have the chance to enjoy a edecorate tour :)
