Thank You

A huge thank you to all my sweet customers that ventured out in the pouring rain this past Saturday! I wasn't sure what to expect with my own diminished inventory from Glitterfest and hearing about our "storm watch" on the news. I guess we get pretty worked up over rain since we don't get it too often.

I managed to beef up my inventory a bit, during the wee hours in the AM the week before, and really just hoped for the best. Thankfully, it all turned out just fine!It was great to see my Brea peeps once again! Quite a tiring day but otherwise awesome. Thank you all so much for coming out in that crazy weather.
So that night after sharing dinner with family and friends I remembered that the Long Beach flea market was the next day. Rain or shine that show goes on and I sooo wanted to go. Since I get to work at Gilding on Sundays, it's usually a super early, very focused trip I take with my boy. He said he'd be up for it. About 6am the alarm sounds and its painful...I can't do it. I didn't even bother waking the boy. It was a no go. Had a great day at the store, didn't really think about it again. When I got home that afternoon I needed to get a few things from the market. Bella wanted to come. For some reason, I decided to stop at the thrift store before we went. I guess since we didn't do the Flea Market earlier, a quick detour would have to do. We walked in and from the door I saw them.

Walked right up to these pretty little leather shoes high on the rack.

Never worn, just dropped off for some unknown reason...waiting for me to come for them.We trolled around the shoes one more time and then found these! Also leather, and in perfect condition.

Both purchased for less than 15.00! I actually felt a little guilty so we left and didn't look anymore. Some times you gotta leave something for someone else :)

Ciao for now!

Glitterfest and my better than a Leg Lamp award!

After having missed the last show, I was so happy to be back at Glitterfest again! Surrounded by gorgeous creations of art, over-the-top displays and above all the nicest people, this show never ceases to impress me. Not surprisingly, Sheryl and Dianne of Whimzy, did a fantastic job of organizing this beautiful event. And this year my little space was honored with a Beautiful Booth Award!

With so many gorgeous displays I'm not sure how they picked me, but I was thrilled!

This time I even brought my number one little

Milagra girl Bella

who stayed with me for the whole show! Here she is with her auntie Catherine and two of our sweet friends Carrie & Amy who traveled over an hour to see us here!

A huge thank you to all those wonderful customers and friends, both new and old that came out to once again support my creative endeavors. Your encouragement and presence is such a blessing to me, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Oh! and I even had a surprise visit from my sweet sister-in-law Catherine Page the current reigning Mrs. Greater Los Angeles , no joke she's competing this Sunday for a Mrs. California title! Wish her luck.

Now for my next show, eeek it's this Saturday, yep, two just days from now!

I'll be at the Brea Spring Boutique from 9-4 if you'd like to stop by. Well I better get back to work and finish those new pieces!

Ciao for now!
