presidential party :: no schlock affair

So am I getting this right? Because we Americans are on a budget, the cost of Obama's Inauguration will be a  measly  $160,000,000 . And the budget to redo the White House interior is a whopping $100,000??? Now everything makes sense.

According to the New York Daily News, which estimated the $160m for the big bash,  Carole Florman, spokeswoman for the joint congressional committee said,"We're always very budget conscious. But we're sending a message to the entire world about our peaceful transition of power, and you don't want it to look like a schlock affair. It needs to be appropriate to the magnitude of events that it is." 

Right. Budget concious. 

One thing that they are doing right is putting a $100,000 budget on redecorating the White House.Let's just see how far that gets designer elect Michael Smith . Not too far, I'll bet. It's nice to hear that he will be using some of my fav places for sources and inspiration though - like Wisteria, Anthropologie,Architectural Hardware, Urban Outfitters, Target, Pottery Barn - hey maybe even a Walmart pillow or two ;) 

Hey Michael, take a look at these over at Wisteria .

Aren't they JUST COOL --- for the White House? Yeah...
