Show Provides Inspiration for Homes, Patios


Respess, Susan P., The Florida Times Union


Summer is over, the kids are back in school and holiday

entertaining is just around the corner.

So it must be time to think about sprucing up the home, and a

source of inspiration can be the Jacksonville Fall Home & Patio

Show, which opens Thursday at the Prime Osborn Convention

Center.

The show will feature new product exhibits for home

decorated by Jacksonville florists and a toy train exhibit with

some rare and antique trains.

The home repair star will be Pat Simpson, host of cable network

HGTV's home improvement programs Before & After and Fix-It-Up.

Harper's Bazaar, Southern Accents and The New York Times, also

Her topics are "Finding Your Style, a Personality/Design Quiz,"

"Making Colors Work for You" and "The Finishing Touch. …
