A Big "Chateau" Thank You As We Close Our First Year Of Shows!

I would like to thank all our talented and sweet vendors for making our shows "Fabulous" this year ! And this last show of the year was certainly a very special one! I sensed a real camaraderie and growth in friendships among the women this time. Also a special thanks to all the customers who come out to shop and experience our "Vintage Marketplace". We are so looking forward to planning another year of shows for all of you!


  1. Congratulations for your success, Christie !

    This painting is stunning. Just done in the great tradition of the old masters. In the French castles, it was usual to make this kind of decorations for the above doorways, or to decorate some wood panels.
    All the best to you.

  2. I had some of my Country Roads family go visit you! I told Carol that next time she goes, in the Spring with Monica, I'm GOING!! I'm tired of just working all the time! Still love that picture of you and your kids on the side bar. Have a wonderful holiday season, and hey, stop by and see us one of these week-ends!

    Take care, Sue

  3. Hi Christie, I hope you did well selling in the vintage marketplace! Wish I could have been there. All the best. Dawn from Massachusetts

  8. Christie, thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. Once I figured out who you were I had to pop over and tell you how much I have admired your incredible talent for so many years now! I have one of your gorgeous prints hanging over the bed in my beach home:-D

  9. Thank you so much Christie! I have very much enjoyed Chateau de Fleurs events as a shopper at your first show, now as a vendor. Yes, friendships have blossomed among us and it has become dear to my heart. You and Rita have A LOT to do with that. I have always admired your amazing talent and now that I've come to know you, your heart is even bigger than your talent. This has truly been a blessing to me as a person and for my business. Thank you so much.
    Sincerest Blessings to You!
