Last Thursday may have been St. Patrick’s Day but it was also Island Girls Night Out at Creative Interiors Carpet One and what a night it was! Besides being totally distracted by the huge amount of really cool tile, area rugs and wall-to-wall carpet with serious pet protection that comes with a warranty (where was this when I needed it???) ALL of us feasted on wonderful dinner catered by Bricks next door. It was certainly more than hors d’oeuvres – Hot Slider Reuben Sandwiches which were yummy, hash brown potatoes as finger food, egg rolls and slider chicken salad sandwiches….mixed with a little wine and beer….Now that was an evening. I was too busy eating and chatting to ever get any photos of the delish’ food!
Bill Dukes and his staff welcomed more than 75 ready- to-celebrate- ladies with delightful charm and wit. And Terry Sweeney was there signing his book “Irritable Bowels and The People Who Give You Them”. He is so funny and the book is hilarious. It makes a great birthday present. But I digress. I had never been to this store before since I am renting down here at the moment and that was a big mistake. They have everything you could ever dream of. Do yourself a favor and stop in just to see what is inside what looks like a small building which turns out to be 3 times bigger than what I thought it was!
