Faux Plus Design

I’d like to welcome another friend and decorative finisher to the blogging world. Debbie Hayes is a very talented Greensboro, NC decorative artist who has been featured a few times before on this blog. 


Her new blog,  Faux Plus Design showcases her photography and literary talents (she’s a former newspaper editor) as well as her artistic skills. Debbie has accompanied me on several of the painting adventures abroad that I’ve been involved with in the past, including France, Morocco, and Italy.

She talks about these (and her ongoing wanderlust) in some recent blog posts, including one on Moroccan Souk kitties….


…and one on our last trip to Italy.


Some of these travels have inspired the color-saturated decoration of her amazing, inviting studio!

I am happy that Debbie (and her talents and ever-ready camera) will be joining us on our next trip to Italy this coming Fall. To find out more about trips to both Italy and Morocco, click here….

    Hi Melanie,
    You never cease to Wow me – thank you for your never-ending support! I will be glad to talk, email, blog or Facebook with anyone who has never traveled with you. Oh the wonderful stories we can share… Can’t wait til October 1. Why am I always wishing time away so I can travel. Have always wondered if I lived in many other countries in other lives. I feel so comfortable everywhere we go.
