Single Digits.........

Well, Today my Daughter had her big birthday party. She actually has been 9...for a couple of weeks, but with spring break, and my travels, we postponed it until today.....
I can't believe it is the end of an era....No more single digits. She will be the big (One Oh!) next year.
I know , I know, your thinking......Geeeezzz, she looks old to have such a young daughter, well ........this one came they say, save the best for last.
She is a chip off the ol' block, she loves to decorate, plan and design.
Here is a view of her cakes..One chocolate, and one vanilla. I go to the local grocery and tell these gals what I want, and explain...this color here, that color there, and add these gumpaste flowers bouquets...and viola!!! They are all of 12 bucks!! I just love how they look.

Then my girl tells me, oh, "Mom, we are going to have face painting right?"....Oh, of hum....So off to the local craft store I go.... Do you think I can find clown noses this time of year????? NO only at Halloween I start hearing.....Okay, Plan B. ..... I find these terrific chenille balls of fluff in ultra cool colors...sooooooooooo, all you need is a little rubber cement...put a dab on the ball, and a dab on their nose, and wait till it gets tacky....(just like with paper)...And I am not kidding, these balls stayed on through relay races, pinata whacks, and just crazy fun. Some fell victim to cake icing, or an occasional fruit punch dunk...but hey, most of them stayed put.

I couldn't resist this bundle of tissue paper...It comes in this great heavy ream for 4.99..... I dont know why I can't just go to the craft store, and walk out with what I came for....NOOOOOOO I have to buy EVERYTHING I don't need. But I have it {Just in case}.

This is the group of Clowns that I created....are'nt they adorable ??? I took the color pallete from the cakes.

The Birthday Girl.....

Here she is .....Always the little designer...She thought that part of the pinata would make an adorable headdress....shes right, don't you think!! hahahah

Focused on her wish....

No Party is complete without a Pinata....Happy 9th Darling...I love you so much !

Texas Toast !!!

Well we made it back home. I must say I am "toasted". I have been gone 2 weeks this round, between Atlanta and Texas it was a long haul. I must say we had a great time though. I met up with my friends, Carol, Lucy and Kelly. ( She helped me again to set up our booth at Marburger Farms.) We also met up with Jo Packham for our book signings of WWC magazine and Jo's new hard cover book about the inspiration of Where Women Create. Rebecca from Vintage Living also was in our group, and we had a great time with her.
We also went to Theresa Cano's Blog party (she is such a doll). I will post pics when I get my hands on Kellys camera.
Thank you to all who stopped by and said hi, It was so nice to see familiar faces and many new ones too.
This is our first stop. The smallest church. It is right on the Highway,and so sweet,charming and peaceful.

There were so many great displays and original ideas.

I love the crowns that Linda at willows nest made for these great chickens.

Aren't these great stepping stones? I love the look of these recycled water meter covers.

It took all the willpower I had to not bring home this unique terra cotta gnome.

I love these displays. This is melissa's booth. She made even old paintbrushes look chic.

Even a group of vintage thermos' look great as vintage vibe vases.

Oh Yeah, we had to have this door. It will live in our showroom in Atlanta I am sure.

Believe it or not,These chairs are made of cement...yes, I said cement!! They look like leather.

Love this, have a table that's too wide? Cut it in half and make a hall table

So many springs everywhere.... large, small, square round. Of course we had to bring some home.

This is the back side of old leather horse collars. Aren't they cool ??

We saw many items of ours in the fields. Here are our mats, they stand up to anything, mud, dirt you name it.

Our moth and beetle study prints......I love these.

My camera broke the day of round top, so these pics I took on a freinds camera. (Until her battery died by the way). So the rest of the pics that are of our booth, the blog parties etc. are on Kellys camera......Well.........her daughter left for Mexico yesterday, and of course took the camera before Kelly could download the pics. So bear with me, You will get many more pics. when Kelsey comes home from spring break.
