I have to wonder if there are many other professions where you get to work on fabulous projects from beginning to end, interact with amazing clients and develop relationships with so many talented people. This is then topped only by… yes… a helicopter ride with some of these people to view the finished projects.
Check out these great shots taken through the tree canopies at beautiful Lake Gaston. I will admit I was a little nervous, but I quickly got beyond the butterfly stomach and could focus on the opportunity at hand.
Ashley recently found this awesome bird finial (from the Lundy’s Garden Collection) for a current project out at Lake Gaston.
This bird has so much character!
And a matter of fact, Molly and Ashley are at the lake installation right now. Be sure to check back next week for more pictures from the lake.
If you could create your own personal finial what would it be?
(The Yellow Backdrop is a Gaston Y Daniela fabric.)
