My Peeps...

                            A photo gallery of my peeps...
How it began, our adventure
to Lucketts Spring Fair

Loading up the trucks...
                  The gang           Denny and Andrew
We are here...how did we do it? 
 Holding my signs I painted for the shop entry.
Where the heck is Robin?

The "before".
We had to pack everything onto the stage
until the next afternoon.
Furniture Tetris!

So after much work,
Gail and I after a full day...
We set our space from 2-9 p.m. on Thursday.
I NEED to go to the beach!

 So why did I NOT have pictures of the whole room?
Let us just write it off to me too tired to think straight. 
It really was such an unbelievable reveal when we were all done. 
Who would have thought?

And after the sale...
Not much left for us to load back to the shop...
thank goodness.

Even a few of these items were already sold
but we took back to the barn for the customers.

Gallery of lovelies...
Virginia and Frannie

The Ladies of Silk & Burlap!
Saule and Angelique
Lindsay and Wendy
Gail, her "mountain man" and
the third wheel...ME!
Wendy, Kelly and Lindsay
Nice! Real nice my friend! Hahaha.

So it is done, thank goodness. 
It was a great success and
no one could have done it without the
full support
of the entire gang of

Oh and such a fun moment...
I got to meet my blog friends

Here are Cassie and Marian.
Such sweet, lovely ladies and
full of talent!

A few days later...
A Birthday celebration today for our
 friend and fearless leader Virginia...
Winnie, Va with her girls, Kelly, Fran, Lew, Sue and Gail!
I escaped and took the picture, yeah me.
I am sorry we all couldn't be here. 
 I missed so many of our pals.

So, hats off to all of the gang.
I think it is time for a NAP!
One more thank you to all....

P.S.  I will do links soon to all of the
Chartreuse and co. girls soon. 
Check out the site above
and you can find links to them all!
Must rest for now...


 It has been ages and ages
since I wrote last.
 For weeks I have been preparing for sales at
We had a special sale the first weekend,

Oh the colors!

Add more color for the next sale...
our normal third weekend.

add to that a special event at the
Lucketts Spring Fair.
 Planning for all three events was a lot,
add filling four trucks with all our goodies
and heading to Lucketts
 to unload and recreate our shop. 
Man'o man. 
Get this....
This was a riot...go peek.

The end result?

Getting to know eachother even better,
meeting new clients,
greeting blogger pals,
little to bring back to the shop (hurrah!)

Left a little more tired, a lot more dirty,
and never more grateful for
the shoppers and my peers.
What a life...love it.


More soon
on meeting and missing blogger friends
and, and , and...

Summer Inspired and loving life.

So much to be grateful for on this day after
 Mother's Day.
I recently made a sign for my shop
 with the words

Simple Abundance

Oh yes, it is true.
 Life is rich.
Life is full.

Remember to
Laugh Out Loud!
Many more signs to inspire you to
embrace life...
Summer weeds Flowers...


A customer sent me a picture of my
"Blue Crab Cafe" sign
in her home. 
I love that.
Thanks again to all our
wonderful customers
What a joyous weekend.
Thank you.
