The Journey Continues…

20140111-061908.jpg I must tell you, having you all along for my adventures is a pretty cool thing. But by now, I think/hope you know this, and know how truly grateful I am. My book journey that began in May 2012 and has continued consistently since has just been so much sweeter being able to write these posts and keep all of you abreast of the process and progress. At some points it has not felt real. With all the timelines and the duration of the entire process, just the idea that the book you are working away on will actually one day be a real book that people will hold, read, look at, hopefully get inspired by–it all seems quite distant. But yesterday it seemed very real. I was asked to do a display for the showroom in Seattle where the book will be ordered by shops around the Pacific Northwest in the coming months. To work on the area where the book would be ‘presented’ was just quite a special thing. Here are a few images I snapped of the display. Each item relating to the “A to Z” of things I wrote about and photographed for the book. To be able to personalize it in my own way was so lovely. The women that make up this showroom, many I have known for years, have been so incredibly supportive of this process all along the way. All the other showrooms across the country won’t have quite the personalized attention, but it just warms me to know they will all be showing my book at all the shows in the coming months. Let the selling begin!

  1. I love your shops. I love your style. I am only able to make it to Seattle once a year, but always visit you shops. Where can I buy your book?

    I am excited to purchase your book and hope that you will be able to sign it. That would make it extra special! I live in southern California, so I wouldn’t be able to travel to the Northwest for a book signing. Do you think you would be headed to any bookstores in SoCal…perhaps the Laguna Beach area?

    I am happy for you that your “baby” will soon be born!

  3. This is so exciting, Mr. W-the release date will be here before you realize it! Your writing is pure and from your heart and passionate; it is not forced or fraudulent and all the readers of this blog know that. You will have legions of new fans once the book is released. Thank you for sharing the journey with us. I trust details of the release date will be shared as the day draws closer.

    Go Team Ted/Global!

  4. It looks beautiful. I cannot wait to get my copy. Good luck, Ted.

    You know I am eager to put my hands on this treasure trove of living well!!!!

    How fun to see the book displayed with objects that are obviously in the book, as they are such a part of you. I think it’s a bit like bringing a page or two of the book to life!

    Your East Coast cheer captain!
