Carlton Varney Larger Than Life....



Linda and I were so fortunate to be able to attend a talk given by Carlton Varney. The larger than life fabric/interior designer who spent his early years working
with the infamous Dorothy Draper.
We both purchased his new book "In the Pink" rumor has it there making a film
about Dorothy. It was a perfect day for Linda and I who bumped into Carlton in
the Halls at Dania before the show even began.
