If you're interested...

A friend of mine who is the Program Coordinator for the Continuing Education department at Queen's College passed along some great information on an upcoming class offered at Queens on the history and architecture of furniture. It sounds very interesting. Please see the info below for more details...

History and Architecture of Furniture
This course will show you how to identify different furniture styles through the use of pictures and actual pieces of antique furniture.
We will address topics such as the difference in Louis XV and Louis XVI; the primary characteristics of Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Arts & Crafts; and why the Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Chair is called that even though it was designed in Germany, not Spain. You will also learn what styles can be most readily mixed and why.
The course will conclude with a trip to the Mint Museum of Art to identify the styles you learn in class.
The instructor, Loyd Dillon, has more than 40 years experience in interior design. He is accredited by the Council for the Qualification of Residential Interior Designers (CQRID) as a Professional Interior Designer, accredited by The Interior Design Society (IDS) at their highest level, twice president of the Charlotte Chapter of IDS, twice president of the Carolinas Chapter of IDS, past national president of IDS, and one of only nine people ever to receive IDS's Fellowship Award - their highest honor.

• Dates: Oct. 15 – Nov. 5 (four Saturdays)
• Time: 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
• Location: Queens – Hodges Taylor Humanities Campus (401 N. Tryon Street in Transamerica Square Uptown). Last class is held at the Mint Museum of Art.

Common Grounds Farm Stand

I love stopping by the Common Grounds Farm Stand located at the corner of Providence and Queens for fresh vegetables and locally made goodies. Our very own Patrick Lewis contributes each week by baking his famous chocolate bread. I must say that it is DEE-LIC-IOUS! Common Grounds is a wonderful organization to support as its proceeds benefit the Urban Ministry Center.
They are open on Thursdays from 8:30 AM - 1:30 PM, May 26 - September 29.
Visit their website for more information! (

Patrick was mentioned in the Common Grounds recent newsletter!
