Yes, I know. I've been 'missing in action'. I was away on business and then yesterday on the way home, I got stuck in a freak snowstorm on the top of the mountain. A usual 4 hour drive took me 10 hours. I cried, self-talked, forced happy calming thoughts, and well you know, went through all the emotions of a bad, bad travel experience. The only thing that kept me going was that in all the little towns where the roads were closed, I'd pull over and read my new Spring issue of Canadian House and Home. Be sure to test drive their new digital edition. You can try a free preview. It is amazing! After reading about Jane Hess and Holly Dyment, I dreamt of Designer's Guild fabrics. Striking wallpapers which reflect the roccoco theme and work beautifully with Florimund printed fabrics. This collection includes dramatic feature wall designs, softer all-over patterns and a superb new flock design - all in a soft new colour palette. 8 designs available in a total of 58 colourways. Sigh. And that folks, is my M.I.A. story. Great design can get you through anything. So, if you've been over to House and Home and tried the digital issue - what are your thoughts on this trend? Or, do you still want your copy in your arms, so you can hug it during freak snowstorms?
