My favorite designer in the universe is Candace Olson. I. Love. Her. I love her style, I love the way she can tranform any room into perfection. Pure class. I love her personality, I love her clothes, I love how tall she is, I love how beautiful she is.
My next favorite designer is Laurie Smith. She is just as classy, just as talented, just as fun to watch, just as beautiful, although I'm not sure how tall she is. Anyway, I was at Wal Mart today (I really dread going to Wal Mart). The nearest Wal Mart to me is in Destin, FL. Now if I was going to Wal Mart for a swim suit or a boogie board or some sunscreen, then the Destin, FL, Wal Mart would be a one stop shop for me. But when I am going to Wal Mart for toothpaste, shaver refills, peanut butter, laundry detergent, etc. then the Destin, FL, Wal Mart is not the quickest place to shop.
Don't let me scare you, if you are ever in Destin, FL, for vacation, the Wal Mart there is fine. It is just that January is not "tourist season" so cashiers are sparse. It takes forever just to check out.
So anyway, back to Laurie Smith. I was standing in line for 20 minutes waiting to check out. My line was near the magazines and books. I noticed a bargain book table out in the middle of the store right next to where I was standing. I saw Laurie's photo on the front and decided to grab my purse, leave my cart (hey, the line wasn't going anywhere) and walk over and check out the "bargain" book table. What a great "bargain" I got. Wow. $4.00 for "Discovering HOME with Laurie Smith ...Find Your Personal Style". Not sure if any other Wal Mart stores have these bargains, but if not, I found it on Amazon HERE.
I love a good design book with beautiful photographs and great tips. I am SO glad I was shopping at the Destin, FL Wal Mart this afternoon.
