The lovely ladies of Lollishops are banding together and have a
"Flea Market Sunday".

The rules are as simple as can be. We are going through and cleaning out our inventory of treasures, scraps, bits and bobs and just "Giving" stuff away. Good stuff I might add! And the rules are so simple... Just pop over to Treasured Heirlooms or Elegance and Whimsy websites and pick out one item you love, then come back here and post what the item is on my blog. Voila, you are done and entered into the contest.

Next Sunday I will pick a name from everyone who leaves a message on this post and YOU WILL WIN a Flea Market package full of fun goodies from me.

I decided to fly out to CA one day before the class began since I need to recoop the time change and I'm not a big fan of flying and pulling my luggage all over the place. When we arrived, Cynthia picked us up at the airport and had an afternoon of wonderful stops planned for us. No time for napping! Sightseeing, shopping and snacking. Here are some awesome pics of two of my favorite shops; "Cupcake Couture" and "Paris to the Moon". I hope you enjoy the whimsical treasures I photographed.



Remember to visit our gracious host:
Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for all the wonderful "Pink Saturday" participants. Thanks for stopping by today.

Treasures, Swaps and Gifts

The Mermaid weekend was jam packed with amazing eye candy, either to buy or make! The vendor night was amazing. I didn't have a chance to photograph each of the vendor tables since I tend to get overwhelmed and cannot think on my feet with a camera in my hand. Shop ~ take pictures ~ Shop ~ take pictures! I'm sure you know which one of those two ideas wins out!

I am completely amazed at some of the mermaid blogs and how they thought to take pictures of each and every person, all the vendor tables, every minute of the event, and all the highlights of this wonderful weekend. I, on the other hand, could barely contain the minute to minute sensory overload of what was taking place. So here I am, doing my best to bring you more photos of the beautiful class projects I finally finished, a few gifts from some loving friends and a couple of items I purchased.

Beautiful Mermaid Weekend

It's been quite a few days since I have had the chance to blog and I so miss it. I thought you ladies might enjoy seeing some recent pictures of Kim Allistair's "Mermaid Event" I attended in mid-July. The weather was perfect and it was a blast.
Here are a bunch of pictures of the fabulous event. Enjoy!

Sweet Cynthia, whom I met at Jenn's "Petticoats & Parasols" Event in Savannah picked up my room-mate Charlene and I and took us to some of the most amazing shopping spots in LA. Every place from discount ribbon and trim shops to a gourmet cupcake bakery. My favorite shops were "Paris to the Moon" and "Cupcake Couture". SO MUCH EYE CANDY!
