Walkin' in Memphis

Back in early March, Kenny and I had the opportunity to travel to Memphis
to train with Amy and Gene Howard of Amy Howard Home






Inspiration was EVERYWHERE!

Imagine every product, every color, right there...just waiting for it's turn!
We are so proud to be retailers for this amazing line..

 Amy and Gene's passion for their business, and love of the process, is infectious...
they represent what Kenny and I hope to one day achieve

 I'm loving Cracked Patina lately...such an authentic "groddy" finish...

 Gene has an abundance of calm and patience...as Amy says "you want him in your fox hole!" 






 Just look at all that PAINT! 
It darn near killed me not to pop open the Orchid...

We didn't have too much spare time, but we did fit in a trip to GRACELAND



I'm not the hugest Elvis fan...but you can't go to Memphis and NOT go to Graceland, right?









Why no interior shots, you ask?  That's because we went to Graceland at 8am!
We had to be at class by 9am,
 but the guard was nice enough to let us wander the grounds for a bit!

Amy and Gene took everyone downtown one evening for a fabulous meal and live music...
the singer was AMAZING, as was the food.  So good. 

Downtown Memphis is also home to the Lorraine Motel,
where Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated







To stand where he stood, to imagine that day in 1968...
it was humbling and inspiring

We visited another Memphis legend...Beale Street








We learned a lot, saw a lot, and of course, ate a LOT (BBQ anyone?)
and we're looking forward to doing it all again real soon!
