One of my favorite things

is to listen to the girls on The Skirted Roundtable.  aka Megan from Beach Bungalow 8, Linda from ::Surroundings::, and Joni from Cote de Texas.  They discuss blogging and interior design weekly on a radio show.  It makes cooking dinner and doing dishes much more bearable and enjoyable.  This week, I loved the interview with the Meg Fairfax Fielding, aka the Junk Whisperer, who also happens to have her own blog Pigtown Design.  She has just garnered new found fame with her spot on the Nate Berkus show, showing how she can eye a treasure from a mile away.  (hello, Hermes scarves for $2 a peice)  I felt she was a kindred spirit.

Just on the show yesterday....I love me some Nate!

I wish I could have been at this flea market.

I love how Nate is showing the masses that a Collected Home is not hard to create.  Which we all know is something close to my heart...I love mixing old and new!

Have a great weekend, I wish I was doing a bit of Junk Whispering myself...but I will have my hands in the dirt laying sod in the backyard......YAY!  So excited to go from dirt to green!

Wish I had that skill - garage sales and second hand shops seem daunting to me! Have fun in your garden this weekend!

Nate is great! I love to turn trash to treasure, it is a great feeling to create something that has been discarded.

I'm with The Buzz - I have never had the patience or perhaps skill for this - but my sister is amazing. She's like Meg - can smell a find a mile away - she has found some glorious things!!
