"White Weekend Spectacular"

Here it is....drum roll please... ...the opening day of our "At Home with White Event". The layout in the tent was too beautiful for words. All the shop girls really stepped up to the plate and hit a home run with this one! (sorry if some of my pics are blurry)

Below is Mary Ellen (shop owner) welcoming the first of those in line Here's Sandi of "A Cottage Muse". We both snapped pics of each other at the same time in the excitement of the opening moments. I think she has the one of me on her site. Isn't she lovely? Some of Sandi's pretties...always something to catch the eye and grab the heart
Another peek into Sandi's space...even with the shadow you can see how sweet her things are.
Here is one view of Karen K.'s spot. Her space was just dreamy, elegant, and over the top gorgeous!One side of Mary Ellen's space. She had incredibly unique goodies...something to swoon over for everyone.
Unique displays abound...
... Is this just the sweetest ever?
Jeannie always blows us away with her knack for beauty everywhere. I had to buy that lovely chiffon fringed scarf that you see hanging there...plus a couple other goodies from her.... :)
Maureen and Peter wowed everyone as always! They have such a knack for refinishing and restoring....
So thrilled to get the chance to meet two fellow bloggers. From left to right...Susan from Evelyn and Rose, Me, Michelle from Petite Michelle Louise, and Sandi (my fellow shop girl) who introduced us all. Susan and Michelle are beautiful inside and out and it was such a treat to meet them. Hoping for a future shopping trip with these lovely gals!
Always excited when Jo-anne Coletti of "Vintage Rose Collection" stops by the store. Sandi and I were so thrilled that she graciously posed with us for a pic. (That's Sandi on the left, me in the center, and Jo-anne on the right) with her adorable pooch in her purse. Jo-anne is a fabulous artist, blogger, and now author who has just published her own magazine. Check it out on her site.
Just HAD to snap a shot of Jo-anne purchasing a tall window from my space. The other side of it was perfectly shabby white! I think she's going to paint some of her fabulous roses on it!!
Here's a few shots of my space...I had so much fun with it!
Another shot of Mary Ellen's space...
Here's two of our talented shop girls...Jeannie and Mary
More Shop Girls..... Karen, Maureen and Sue having a quick lunch break
Here's Mary Ellen under this smaller tent, ringing up the outside sales...always smiling and ready to help.
Ooooh la la... Paris anyone?
Linen pillows in a vintage french laundry basket
Some outside displays... Just look at that mirror Other treasures... Sue's spot...she has a wonderful way with white Mary and I on the last day. Tired and lovin' it!
All in all, it was a dream come true for me and all the shop girls. This was our first event like this and it was a smashing hit. I hope it'll be an annual event that will grow larger every year. The possibilities are endless. Thanks to all our customers and blogging friends for their support and wishes!
As always~ Blessings and Hugs,

Hello Karen!
Every time I look at these photos I am transported back to that amazing event. I keep looking at all the details in the photos, realizing there was so much to take in! I'm already looking forward to next year's event, as well as a shopping excursion in the near future with you and the gals. :)
Oh, and I may have to take you up on that offer for the laundry basket! I can't stop thinking about it!
Could you send me your email & we'll talk shop? I'm so excited!!
Take care,
