Getting ready for my audition!

I haven't been able to post this week due to the exciting call 
I got from a production company looking to see if
 I might be suitable for a new show they are making involving decorators and designers! 
They found me from my blog right here on Maison Decor! 
How cool is that?
 I needed to get camera ready and I had to make a mood board for the audition.
  They are coming tomorrow so this is a bit of
 behind the scenes at the residence of Maison Decor this week!
I picked this old light fixture up at the NH swap shop (dump).
Hubby thought I was nuts 
but hung it in the kitchen for me anyways. 
Our old light was off center to our island 
and I never could have a drop pendant style 
until I spied this number and 
figured it would be perfect.
I detested our fixture but just ignored it 
and the rest of the kitchen.
Hubby is finding the center point over our island...
looks wierd but it came out cool!
Adjusting the globes...
they have roses carved on them in milky glass. 
Here is the old one off center 
and the kitchen looks like a bomb went off in it!
Since this picture was taken 3 days ago,
I've already painted it and made a new curtain!
You'll have to wait for a final reveal on this.

Had to get going on making a mood board for a fantasy client.

Frenchy all the way...

Here's a sketch of the room I conjured up on the mood board.

I had to run into Newbury Street and get my hair done!
My son's GF, Sarah McManus
 is a personal stylist and she set me up.

 looking mahvelous....
Thanks John, you are awesome!

Trying on the clothes Sarah got for me: skinny pants?
mirror pic and send to her.

or do I tuck in my blue top???
hmm...what about this form fitting dress? 

Or maybe this top with the black skinny pants?
This was all happening at midnight last night! 

I appreciate Sarah's input to help me look my best!
You can catch Sarah's blog on my blog roll.
Still not sure what I will be wearing..
but you will be seeing a follow up post on everything soon.
Its been a hectic week trying to make our house
 look like only one perfectionist lives in it.
Pretending there are no dogs,
 no slobs, 
no kids leaving trails of toys,
 no dishes left in sinks, 
all toilet seats down,  
plenty of  fresh roses arranged just so,
 a glass bakers stand filled with buttery croissants, 
a perfect lawn, 
no dust on table tops, 
nothing piled on the kitchen counters, 
all the laundry done and put away neatly.....
well its been fun (read: stress) playing make believe!

Tomorrow I get to show my stuff on camera~
it will be an unforgettable day for me.
Wish me luck!
