And a good time was had by all....especially yours truly!
On Sunday, March  28th, Theresa Cano of Garden Antqs Vintage played hostess to the most rockin' collection of bloggers ever assembled under a Texas sky!

I'm going to break this post up into two parts....the first part is going to be a star studded, who's-who post with many of your favorite bloggers. Part two, which may be posted tomorrow, or maybe later this week, will feature some of the incredible goodies we attendees were treated to.

So without further ado, here are the pics I managed to snap when I wasn't...
  1. Chowing down!
  2. Making new blogging buddies!
  3. Ooohing and aaahing over the creative blogger name-tags many of us made for the party!
And shame on me for not getting a pic of  Garden Antq Teresa's name-tag! But in all fairness, Ms. Theresa is a little whirlwind of activity during the party, she is Party Hostess Extraordinaire personified, and thus hard to pin down.

Let's get started!

Here's a bit more of my own name-tag...I basically just embellished a show ribbon with this, that and the other. It seemed to be a hit with my fellow bloggers!


It's the lovely Shelley of Sweet Pea!
And get a load of her gorgeous Magnolia Pearl party duds...

Moving right along...

This gorgeous gal would be Lauri of Chippys. Nobody rocks baby doll bling like Ms. Lauri!

 There's Lauri and her partner in crime, the one and only TOT (Theresa Smith, aka The Other Theresa) of Time-Worn Interiors.
More on TOT later.

Hey, there's one of me!
This beautiful blonde gal is none other than Rebecca of Rebecca Ersfeld for Vintage Living.

 It's my girl Angelique of Six in One Hand! She was rockin' a Mason jar full of grandpa's cough medicine.  ;-)

Left to right, Angelique, Me, Jodie of Everything Vintage, and Laura of White Spray Paint.
It's great when blog friends make the leap from virtual to "real"! 


Blogging goddess Heather Bullard. She's just as nice and approachable as she is beautiful!


So if ya look in the dictionary, you see this ladies' picture under "super cute"...that'd be Mindy of Primitiques 'n Poetry.


Who 'dat?
I was thrilled beyond measure to finally meet this gal in's Adrienne of  The Flying Bee!

Oh, the trouble we could get into, hehehe!
Left to right, Angelique, Me, Adrienne.


This? Too funny.
The charming and witty Maggie of The Veranda.


The Warrenton paparazzi, aka Adrienne of The Flying Bee and photographer extraordinaire, David of Student of Life.

More celebs? No problem!
Here's one of the fab guests of honor Theresa lined up, Gina Galvin of Peacock Park Design.


And the gorgeous lady on the left alonside Gina?
Why that would be my future boss and publisher, (hey, it could happen!) Jo Packham of Where Women Create.

And which name-tag won the award for the bestest and most all-around awesome?
That'd be this one...

Great job, TOT!

Blog Party, Spring 2010 is a wrap!

savvycityfarmer said...

Omgoodness gracious ... I was transported right to those tents.I've known Rebecca for years ... she was at our blogger party a month ago should see her shop ... to die for.

Everyone just has a certain air about them ... funloving and kin- dred spirits!

the old white house said...

Hi Anne! That was a fun post and I loved seeing the pictures of all of the people I've been visiting! It looks like everyone had a blast, thanks for sharing! Theresa
...stop by and put your name in the hat :)

David said...

You captured the fun, Anne! Great job on the pics!

I'm confused as to how to spell Ms. Cano's first name. I saw it spelled Teresa on a couple people's blogs and so I started spelling it that way on my blog. Since then, I've also seen it spelled Theresa on a couple blogs. I see you've spelled it twice one way and once the other on this blog post, so you're no help at all! LOL!

I've looked at Garden Antqs Vintage and can not find her name anywhere on it, even in her profile. Inquiring minds want to know! How does SHE spell it?!

Debra@CommonGround said...

Great photos! I felt like I was there with you all, and loved seeing everyone's imaginative nametags! Can't wait to see all the goodies next post.
love ya,

Garden Antqs Vintage said...

Anne, you captured the best pics and always say the best things. To answer David's question, my name is spelled with an H, Theresa, but I guess as long as I'm mentioned it's ok how it's spelled. Most do leave the H off. Hope you had a great time and soon I want to come your way and check out your fabo booth! One more thing and yes it could happen to you that you'd work for Jo, I think anything is possible!

AuroraSuzette said...

What fun, and a nice chance to see these bloggers I love to read! Looking forward, more than you know, to next posts about the show!!

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

OMG! What fun this HAD to be!! I am so jealous but SO glad you got to go!

Going to this is on my Bucket List!

Lou Cinda :)

Old Time Cindy said...

Hi Anne!

LOL at Robelyn, there ARE great pics of you, silly wabbit! I have even more pics of you, but I haven't done my red.neck.chic post yet. :-)

And for David, as confirmed by Theresa, there's an "h" there, I must've made a typo (shudder!!!), gotta quit staying up until the wee hours putting these things together. ;-)


Jamie said...

HOW FUN!!! Hopefully I will make it to the big leagues like you all and be so lucky to attend one of these parties!

trash talk said... Yeah girl, there ain't nothing classier than a bra hanging out for all the world to see! That's me...go big or go home!
It was a great time, but I am so glad to be home.
P.S. Wasn't everybody just so darn cute?
