I'm Re- Grouping Today!

After unwinding Sunday from one of the busiest most creative shows I do "Glitterfest" I'm now switching gears to get ready for the "Chateau De Fleurs Marketplace" and barn sale trail, June 18th & 19th! This show is hosted by my darling Sister-in-law Rita Reade mammabellarte.blogspot.com and myself at my home in Fallbrook. My yard will be filled with 20 amazing vendor's each with a love of vintage, garden and cottage style items and decor. For more info or to get on our mailing list you can click on my website and go to the event page. So today while I'm organizing my thoughts again, I will leave you with a beautiful bouquet from my garden which I had on my table at Glitterfest.

I Miss Decorating!

Show's, show's, and more show's! As much as I love doing show's It does take allot of my time and attention away from my home. There has been a long list of things to do in order to clean this place up to just be able to live in it and maintaining it is another list. Although I have a grateful heart to be living here I long to have some time to concentrate on decorating it. One of the rooms I have played with a little is my bedroom, I have taken things I already had and used them differently to save some money. I liked the outcome but it may change later.

New Designs for Glitterfest !


The theme for the
 Glitterfest boutique this spring  is "Sparkle where you are" so the idea came to me to make my table about glamour, romance and femininity, things that represent what you would find in a woman's dressing room or boudoir as she primping herself and making herself sparkle!!! More ideas are coming...

Pretty Pink Surprises



Last summer when I moved from the beach cottage to the country house I had no idea what flowers were lying dormant in the garden. At the time everything appeared dead and neglected. The house had been a bank owned repo and sat quite a while without any care. One day while I was working in the yard , the previous owner stopped by to say hi ( bless her heart ) and mentioned to me that she had planted some of her favorite flowers there and hoped they would bloom again for me to see.Well the flowers are starting to blossom, like a gift of pretty pink surprises from her to me.

Garden Inspirations

I'm starting to get my energy back after  doing the last 2 shows and now its time to replenish my shop with new inventory. So while I am doing that, I thought I would share some of the clever and inspiring items people were selling as garden containers in Olivenhain.
