My visit to Young Frankenstein and all that Gothic decor!

So maybe it wasn't Wicked, but it sure was fun!

Thank you Jenny and Kathy for taking Kristen and I on a double date to the

(crutches in the car, but I hobbled my way through it!)

We started out at The Porch on Henderson Ave in Dallas... yummy-

 Cocktails first....
(my signature Grey Goose Dirty Martini... after hours of course:)

(Here's a quick host/hostess idea for you to have your drink embellishments handy!)

Kathy and Jenny had the Crab Cake Salad and...

Kristen and I went in for the House Favorite... Smoked Brisket Enchiladas

On to the set. As I watched the musical, of course my eyes drifted to the stage decor and I 
was reminded of a huge Dallas design trend that hit strong about 10 years ago- 
especially in the suburb McMansions.

Medieval furnishings are still prevalent and there are plenty of homeowners that go for the Gothic look.

Typical Gothic arch and large stone walls

I know I've seen this window treatments in a Frisco model home!

Heavy wood and metal chain

Carved furniture...

Do you know someone with this bedroom suite?

 or this chair?

 or maybe you'd like to place any order for this master suite?

I'm game if you are!
