Sherwin Williams is only holding these events in 7 states. I was all a twitter about attending. I was anxious to get the scoop on the latest colors! I couldn't wait to write a post about it. That was last month.

I couldn't figure out why I was so uninspired by this event. There were lots of folks (many realtors) in attendance. You can spot a gentleman NC realtor from 500 feet. Their uniform is khaki pants and a button down shirt. The ladies realtors, in their sensible shoes, were en mass. Oh yes, the interior designers (most dressed like a Bravo Housewives) were there too. I enjoyed chatting it up with them.
Anywho, last night I started a fire, poured myself a glass of Merlot and pick up one of my many coffee table books. As I was thumbing through a book on artist Mary Cassatt, it hit me that one of her works "A Cup of Tea" had a similar color palatte to one that Sherwin Williams is lauding for 2013.
Here are the colors of SW's 'Honed Vitality'.
I know I am old school. I know I love art and it isn't every one's cup of tea. (Yowzer, a pun!) I'm just saying, if SW had included at least a few images by renowned artists corresponding to their color palettes maybe I could better relate to their 2013 colors.
What's old is new, right?
Maybe SW's images of Steampunk and a Biknit Chaise are most relevant for marketing in 2013.

Gag Gift Christmas Gala
I snagged a black sequined feather boa and rhinestone tiera at our neighborhood Christmas Party Monday night. I soooo loved it!

Wouldn't you know it, on last round a new girl in the 'hood stole it from me!
I ended up with a Santa boot with a silver tensile tree sprouting from the top.
Ain't it the way....
