The Facebook Chronicles

I'll admit it.
My life has been too crazy busy
these past Summer months to devote the time
needed to keep up with a regular blogging schedule.

Which is why I've been keeping everyone updated
mostly via Facebook.

It's quick, easy, and I'm able to shoot photos
with my iPhone and upload them to FB straight from my phone.

For those of you who are not on Facebook,
here's a bit of what's been going on in my world
the past few weeks.

First up, I was thrilled to not only be able to attend
the incredible "moving-in" sale at the new
Magnolia Pearl homestead right here
in Fredericksburg, Texas, but I got to help out
with pricing the day before the sale.
Here are some of my iPhone shots, pre-sale...

I brought home a goodly portion of
tea-stained lace and linen with me!

And this entire, HUGE basket of seam binding?
Home with me, of course!

I had to grab the tarnished silver "bread" platter, too.

It was a beautiful sale, and we are all so happy
to have Robin and John here in da 'Burg!

I also have been busy at Smitten
as time allows.
I'm lucky enough to have two features running
in the current edition of FOLK magazine,
so I set up a little point-of-purchase vignette
in the shop to hawk the issue!

I've also been dabbling in mixed-media art
a bit this Summer, and have even been brave enough
to begin selling a bit of my work, like the piece below...

I also found myself blessed beyond measure
when my incredibly sweet and talented friend
Sherry from ShantyGirl 
gifted me with one of her fabuloso,
handmade Union Jack throws....

Winnie immediately claimed it,
as she has impeccable taste.
Oh, and I love it too, Sherry!!!

I've added to my growing collection of dreamy  
Magnolia Pearl clothing this past Summer,
and the darling little MP jumper in the pics below
has quickly become one of my favorite pieces.

I got a new toy this past week, too...

Photo: My new baby arrived today! Can't wait to get home and play.

I'm having fun learning this over-the-top
wonderful camera. 36 megapixels, wow!
I made a couple of trips to
this weekend, and just this afternoon,
came home with something I have wanted forever...

The lousy phone pics don't do it justice,
but this divine mantle is now in our farmhouse!

Finally, I've been super busy on
a few editorial features for magazines,
as well as shooting the photos for the in-progress

Below is a peek at what to expect...

I can't reveal any more photos from the website yet,
but this particular photo was featured in 
the local newspaper, so I figured I could share it
and whet your appetite for what is to come.

I'm sure you've all been having a crazy busy Summer, too.
Even though I haven't been commenting,
I've been keeping up with y'all, and
just want to thank you for the constant inspiration
you provide me on a daily basis.

Here's hoping you have a wonderful week ahead!

You got some great items there, and you have been very busy. I too agree with you, it is so much easier to post photos on FB, so much faster. I find myself doing it quite often. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Hugs!

Insomnia said...

I would have totally lost my mind trying to resist so many of the "Must Haves" I would have been Lusting Madly over at the MP Moving In Sale... because I would have wanted ALL of the Pillows... the Duvet... That Chair... any Velvets and Silk Seam Binding I could 'score'... and... and... and... well... you get my drift, I would have gone Broke! *LOL* So much of what was for Sale was Classic MP from when I began Collecting her Beautiful Creations and Velvet is still my preferred Vintage Fabric of choice to Decorate with and wear, so it would have all been absolutely perfect! Well... at least I can savor all the Images you Shared of the Experience... what Fun you must have had!

Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
