THE SKIRTED ROUNDTABLE


I don't know many other interior decorators in real life.  So it's always a pleasure to pull up a virtual chair at The Skirted Roundtable and find out the inside scoop on decorating fees, common designer dilemmas, blog happenings and shelter magazine shake-ups.  Hostesses Megan Arquette, Joni Webb and Linda Merrill's lively podcast interviews with women like top designers Charlotte Moss, successful blogger Anna Spiro of Absolutely Beautiful Things and magical movie set creator Beth Rubino (Someone's Gotta Get Her) manage to simultaneously entertain, educate and distract me from the drudgery of house cleaning.  What could be better?

Thank you so much for featuring The Skirted Roundtable! And that image is perfect - exactly the feeling we want to capture with the podcasts!

Lovely of you to stop by, Linda. Glad you like the photo--it really did capture how when I listen to TSR podcasts I feel I'm sitting 'round with some chic girlfriends and discovering the inside scoop, sharing stories, learning new things plus enjoying a fun little bit of gossip.

Welcome, also, First Day of Magic ... thanks for the Follow!
