My Daughter Just Got Her First Apt!























My daughter Cherise and I had such a fun day together hunting around for some bedding and accessories for her new apt. she has always loved brighter more vivid colors, allot like her personality, she is a very happy and vivacious girl!!! I'm so excited that she also picked my new bike painting "Dreaming of Summer" for over her bed. I can't wait to see it all put together in her room! Here she is sitting on my back porch with some of her loot. XO Christie

Photo's from Sweet Coco!

A week before our last Vintage Marketplace, I got an e-mail from one of my customers Coco from www.shabbycoco.com. She was letting me know that she was going to fly here from Korea to come to our show and do some shopping. She came bright and early Friday morning , and boy did she shop! She just sent me these photos today of me in my booth, if you enlarge the photos you can see up above where she wrote "I love Christie" and "I Love Christie's Roses" This truly blessed my heart and made my day!

Purple Paradise!

















I just Love living out here in the country and exploring new places! This time my SIL Rita organized a fun day trip to the Lavender Field farm in Valley Center about 20 minutes east of where I live in Fallbrook CA. Quite a few of our friends and fellow vendors from our show joined us for the field trip . This place is such a treat for the sences, lots of beauty to see and fragrance to smell! They also do weddings and tea parties here.Please enjoy some photos from the day. OX Christie

We Had Our Best Show Yet !!!



















My SIL Rita and I were just blown away and overwhelmed with joy with all the people who came out to support "The Vintage Marketplace" at our new location "The Oaks" country park in Rainbow CA. We had a steady stream of shoppers all day long! I know both Rita and I were practically sold out of our wares the first day of the show! :)  Because I was so busy I was unable to take many photos so here are a few blog links of ladies posting on our show. Hope you enjoy their pictures!  Tatteredgoods, Gotart, Trulytattered,
 Crusin' Over SixtyMammabellarte, and also check out our facebook fan page  The vintage marketplace. XO Christie
