This Saturday...

I'll be hanging with many of the fabulous folk
you see right here in this post.

I originally posted this after I returned home from selling
at the Spring shows in Warrenton / Round Top...
and please be sure to check back next week,
because I plan on taking a LOT of pics
at the greatest antique / junking gathering on Earth!

I won't be able to attend the blog party,
but I will  pack as much shopping and gabbing into the short time I am there.

And because this is SUCH an inspiring place, I'm linking this to Debra's wonderful
Vintage Inspiration Friday party at Common Ground.


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!

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!

 There's always a cast of colorful characters attending the party,
and this time was no exception.
Debbie of Talking Trash.

It's the lovely and classy 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 

Theresa of Timeworn Interiors and Debbie.

 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!

Robelyn and Debbie settling the eternal debate: 
Redneck vs. White Trash...which is klassier?


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 person...
it's Adrienne of  The Flying Bee!

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


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 alongside Gina?
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!

What an enjoyable post, I so love seeing photographs of bloggers having such a fun time together. And yes, I do get a bit sad as well, I would love to be part of such a getogether. Still, living in France and the UK is not so bad either. lol.

savvycityfarmer said...

not being there ...

Robyn said...

Theresa said...

HUGS and be safe!

trash talk said...

I feel just like Miss Nancy on Romper Room looking through the Magic Mirror. I see Shelley, Laurie and Tot. Oh look, there's Gina, Maggie and my bra! Can't wait to see YOU live and in person.

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hi Anne,
Now this looks like fun! I can't believe how great looking everybody is and I loved that I knew who almost everyone was without having to look! It's like seeing old friends, just lovely. Have a great time... how I was I was going along too. Watch out for that Debbie, she's always up to something and I hear it's Cat Daddy's b-day (was just over there).

Also Anne, I want to thank you for your kind comment about my cat, Gigi. I appreciate you taking the time to comment and make me feel a little better, it's hard and I know you get it. Thank YOU!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Happy weekend, jj

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Anne,

thank you so much for showing us your wonderful photos.
What a great bunch of Gals and Guys that you have been hanging around with and it was neat to see some of the names that I recognized.
I love all the fabulous name tags and what a creative lot you are.

Have a happy weekend, dear friend

Tammy said...

Gotta do this in 2011!! Looks like Too Much FUN!!!
Have a great Saturday!!
Tammy :-)

paperbird said...

what a fun post- i love your name tags and the photos are great. someday i'll make it there.

Rozmeen said...

Have a great time my friend sounds like fun!

Wishing you a lovely weekend,

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

No sense in telling you to have a great time. That's a given, right!

I love your dining area with the little round table, the bench - the dark and the white go so nicely together.

And your hutches are great. I have one that I would like to take the glass front off of and then paint white. It's just getting motivated to get started. And finding the right paint! :)

Wishing you all the best, Tammy

Privet and Holly said...

You TEXAS gals
are all super cute
and super nice!!!
Looks like a blast!
Can't wait to visit
your lovely state
next spring. It will
be here before we
know it!
xx Suzanne
PS: Loved your badge!
