In addition to seeing my nephew graduate from high school, we celebrated Chelsea's Jr. High promotion to High School and then....
we said our final farewell to elementary school as Ally promoted to Jr. High. Sigh....
Hopefully my first "newbie" is obvious -- my new blog design! Don't you love it! I do! It was designed by wonderfully talented designer, Kelly from Dallas, also known as "fabulous K creative". Check out her talents and her portfolio at http://www.fabulouskcreative.com/. Kelly contacted me to see if I would be interested in doing a trade...a few pillows in exchange for a new blog design. I jumped at the chance! Fabulous K captured exactly the feel and essence that I wanted for my blog...clean, crisp and stylish. If you're thinking about starting a blog or giving your current blog a face lift, consider contacting Kelly. You'll be so happy you did.
Newbie #2 - NEW PILLOW DESIGNS
Had a wonderful wonderful time attending my nephew's graduation and visiting with all my family. My sister and I had a blast Flea Marketing at Canton and picked up lots of goodies. We were there when it opened and were picking up last minute items as vendors were packing up and we still didn't get through the entire market. I shipped two boxes back and still have more junk that I left at my parents house. One of my favorite items I picked up were these 2 old building drains. They were white, canary yellow and red and had the weathered chippy paint look. I'm so excited to report I'm headed back to Texas again in 2 weeks to go to my 30 year high school reunion (yikes!). Does anyone know how to loose 15 lbs. in 2 weeks?
While in Texas, I also had lunch with my high school journalism teacher, Ann Brannen. We talked as though we were catching up after not seeing each other after just a few months. I'll see her again when I head to Houston in a few weeks. She truly will be a lifelong friend and I only hope my kids end their school years with someone to remember just like her.
La Maison Rustique Barn Sale
I had an opportunity to set up as a vendor at La Maison Rustique's monthly barn sale on June19. If you have not been to Linda Carpenter's monthly barn sale in Temecula, you need to put this outing on your "to do list". La Maison Rustique offers buyers a fantastic selection of unique and must have "junk". After shopping at the barn, you can enjoy a tasty lunch at one of the many winery restaurants. Is there really a better way to spend a day?
Linda is one of the sweetest lady's I've ever met and I am in awe of her talent. I'll send out a reminder for her next show which will not be until August as she is off in July for a well deserved vacation.
Did I say I would keep this short and sweet?? OK...I lied...sorry!
A Day Without Laughter Is A Day Wasted......
