Taylor sets the mood for my first-ever Save The Pink Bathrooms talk

I couldn’t stop smiling all day long after Taylor — a Retro Renovation reader from Charleston — showed up at my Save The Pink Bathrooms talk in Charlotte wearing our first-ever Save The Pink Bathrooms tee shirt. That’s Elaine, another reader, over Taylor’s right shoulder, and over by the screen you can see Ken, A/V expert for all my talks. The whole thing was A BLAST — especially Friday, when lots of readers showed up in force. Scathing Jane came from Atlanta! Lauren came from near Philadelphia! Teresa, Linda, Micheal, Edwin, Pete, Hugh, Cathy, Lila, Gail… oh my, there were more, too! You all get exclamation points!

It was so much fun to meet everyone, and to get all excited talking about our kitchens and our bathrooms and our mint-in-box finds and our prayers to the retro decorating gods and our families who don’t quite understand but certainly are amused. I have to say, the whole 5-talks-in-2-days-plus-media-interviews-plus-my-mom-was-with-me thing was, umm, stressful. So I can’t even remember everyone’s name my brain cells were so pressurized and big boo boo, I wasn’t taking notes. I’ll be back in home on Sunday night and will start queuing up all the photos. Everyone who came: Please send me an email (retrorenovation [at] gmail [dot] com), or comment when you see your photo, because I really want to recognize everyone. Oh my, what a wonderful wonderful experience it was to spend time with you. YOU ROCK!

    Ahhh, I had such a good time at the home show! We (hubby and I) saw 2 of Pams presentations on Friday. The best home show I have been to. Believe it or not, I made the Save the Pink T shirt for $7 big ones. The shirt from Target and the iron on letters from Michaels Arts and Crafts. Many exhibitors and visitors asked me about the catchy phrase and it gave me a great excuse to spread the word. I have tons of pictures of the time capsule rooms and would be happy to share them with anyone! Taylor

    I loved your talks in Charlotte, so glad I was able to attend.
    So interesting how color palettes came about–(mamie pink)
    and how world events play such a big part in how people decorate.

    Taylor looks like she’s glowing! That’s awesome that so many folks showed up. Can’t wait to see the pix Pam! Hmmmm, maybe at some point you’ll be traveling all over giving your talks–would love to see you in RI!!!! 🙂

  5. How fun! So glad the devotees were there in force to hear you. Interesting that it’s only about a year since your last speaking engagement (in Eugene) and the publicity/recognition factor seems exponentially larger. Look forward to your reports!
    (And maybe you can get a speaking gig at the Home and Garden Show in Portland next spring?)
