For fans of this group of well-known women designers. If you recall, the Sugarbakers of Atlanta opened their own interior design company. The four women - Julia Sugarbaker, Suzanne Sugarbaker, Charlene Frasier Stillfield and Mary Jo Shively - took on any job they could find, always completing the task with class and wit.

The stars are right for those born under the sign of Taurus! "Oozing and surging up out of that yawning trap-door in the Cyclopean crypt I had glimpsed such an unbelievable behemothic monstrosity that I could not doubt the power of its original to kill with its mere sight. Even now I cannot begin to suggest it with any words at my command. I might call it gigantic—tentacled—proboscidian—octopus-eyed—semi-amorphous—plastic—partly squamous and partly rugose—ugh! But nothing I could say could even adumbrate the loathsome, unholy, non-human, extra-galactic horror and hatefulness and unutterable evil of that forbidden spawn of black chaos and illimitable night. As I write these words the associated mental image causes me to lean back faint and nauseated." -H.P. Lovecraft & Hazel Heald, "Out Of the Aeons"
