So further down the road I’m at High Point Furniture market ; the Furniture capital of the world and guess what Trend forecast I made last year is taking off :Stingray

There is just one problem here; did you read What’s Kale Got to Do with it… cuz I think we have a title theme happening .You didn’t read it but after you finish this one you will!

I’m running around Market with HG pointing out all my Trend Forecasts

Fuchsia, itchy grey, Stingray

I was singing it like the wizard of oz! HG would just giggle and let me be me❤️love that girl !​

​When I returned home from Furniture Market I began reaching out to companies for images. Proper titles of things; dimensions, descriptions. It’s amazing how nice people are to tiny little blogger like me!

Though Stingray and Shagreen are in a similar family

Shagreen is a type of rawhide consisting of rough untanned skin, formerly made from a horse’s back or that of an onager (wild ass). Shagreen is now commonly made of the skins of sharks and rays.
The word derives from the French chagrin and is related to Italian zigrino and Venetian sagrin, derived from the Turkic sağrı / çağrı ‘rump of a horse’ or the prepared skin of this part. The roughness of its texture led to the French meaning of anxiety, vexation, embarrassment, or annoyance.[1]https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shagreen Wiki

In order to sound like you actually know what you’re talking about… it’s best to kind of know what your talking about!
