I am having such a great time in Chicago
and the surrounding area on Day 23 of my tour and I’m excited about
an event at the Evanston Public Library this evening.
I can’t be in Chicago without thinking of the talented
Shelley Johnstone, who we talked about here.
How beautiful is this space?
it is quite nearly impossible to even look at Shelley’s gorgeous designs without feeling fabulous.
And her backyard is the ultimate oasis.
This is where I want to be relaxing at the end of my tour!
If you love Shelley’s designs as much as we do, you don’t want to miss the 17th Biennial Lake Forest Showhouse & Gardens , open daily, April 29 through May 21. The Showhouse is produced by the Lake Forest Chapter of the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago, and Shelley has designed the fabulous dining room!
If you’re looking for a gift for Mother’s Day, don’t forget Slightly South of Simple. These are wrapped and ready for lots of special moms! Happy Tuesday, friends!
