and for me...well, I love that my guy can enjoy this with me...he even took over photographing so that I could focus on the stuff!
This is Judy Watkins, responsible for the event. She is so "over the top" talented and extremely nice to boot. Check out her stuff and definitely get on her mailing list. Her site is remnantsofthepast.com you will love it.
This is me going gaga over everything that Judy had! I managed to score a few of her finds to take home!
Heather Bullard and her lovely husband. I have followed Heather for quite some time, so for me to actually meet her was a special treat. She is absolutely adorable and the way she displays her treasures is fabulous. She creates eye candy. I love the treats I bought from Heather. Now I just need her to come and help me put it all together!
Running into friends. This is Debbie, one of the Picket Fences girls from Solvang, California. It is one of my favorite stores. The girls are so sweet and they have an amazing eye for all the fun stuff you just can't live without once you have seen it.
one of he sweet ladies who was selling at the show, Melissa Blue. I bought this adorable birdbath to put in the rose garden in the back of my cottage
scored that cute white chippy table and a pair of arched screen doors from this gal. She said this is her after hours job, she also works a full time job and has a family...I don't know how some women can do it all...I barely keep my etsy site stocked with anything new, I just keep it. Note to self: improve business tactics....
Susan from Design Consign in Santa Ynez, California. She is super talented and has an amazing store. So fun to run into so many familiar faces
Sandy Linderman on the left and Sidney Muncy on the right. These are some richly talented women. I got a great old show rack from them. Love their energy...they were headed to the Rose Bowl the next day...I can relate....
being the jewelry girl, I am always trying to find new ways to display my stuff. This woman had a bunch of great stuff
but nothing made me happier than to finally see this dress form...and it didn't have a tag with "NFS" on it!
finally, the boys...oh did I mention the boys were with Lar and I...they were so patient....but after 3 hours...they were ready....So we took our smalls and decided to take them to do something fun...we would come back for the other stuff...
a few photos of the property on our way out....
Downtown Arryo Grande for some fun...guess what the boys wanted to do...go to an antique mall to look for their treasures...old coins, old toy soldiers and war medals...they have been influenced
