Events... and A Blogger Party

Happy Thursday evening... middle of the week and I don't know where the first part of it went. But I am happy and thankful for being able to do as much as I do. 
It has been a good week and I expect it to continue. I love Autumn... I love it a little warmer though, it has been cloudy and damp here in Chicago this past week.
 But the trees are beautiful and I am enjoying them because soon they will be bare. I really love the change of seasons, I just wish winter wasn't so long here in the Midwest. 
This time of year brings so much anticipation and preparation for the holidays ahead. It is so much fun. 

I am working steadily in my studio now, as countdown is here for the shows I will be doing. 
And I am trying to get etsy up and running which I haven't been able to do as yet or my blog shop. But I will be loading it soon. I also am still planning on doing a few workshops but they will be late November and December.
Today I want to invite all of you to a party! I am so excited...
I will be participating in

I not only will be setting up a small space at the event and bringing my Christmas wares but I am also going to leave it up all through the holiday season. Karen and Donna were nice enough to invite me to stay and have a sample of Vintage Living in Horton's.
This event was so much fun last year and I am looking forward to it this year... 
So much in fact that I decided to throw a party...
A Blogger Party
In my space, during the open house...

Please come and help us celebrate this wonderful Christmas season. Donna and I are putting together a little gift for all of you, in appreciation of all the support and fun we have had this year blogging with all of you. There will also be a drawing for a special Vintage Christmas gift.  This is for you followers too! Just mention the blog when you see me, you don't have to have a blog to come!
There will be treats, gifts and plenty of laughter...
Come be inspired!

  19. Gee wishing I lived closer. As much as I love halloween and as hard as I party and decorate, gosh I am glad it is over. Now time to move on straight to Christmas. I love your stockings and I could have lots of fun shopping at that great shop. Enjoy Kathy

  20. I loved seeing the photos from last year. It truly was magical.
    Loving your bracelet design and I'm wondering the same thing as everyone else. Are these going to be available to the me? I'd love to be able to come up, but traveling just isn't in the cards right now...would that I could.

  21. I remember those pics!! That is one store that I would LOVE to visit!! Your work is so incredible my friend. I am dieing over those velvet rose bracelets.
    Any chance they will available for those of us who can't be at the event????

  22. I agree with everyone else - those velvet bracelets!!!!! Beautiful! Well as long as "she" doesn't buy one and make me wear it around my neck. "She's" kind of weird like that - can't look the other way for one moment. You never know what "she" is going to try and dress me in next. The tutu has lead me to be very cautious....still they are very nice!!!! Good luck - I am sure you will sell out!!!!


    Romeo and "her"
