Omg! Three weeks and Three antique shows! What a whirlwind~I can't beleive it is already the 17th of the month...
I had the pleasure of doing The C.A.L.M. Show in Santa Barbara Ca. this past weekend. Held at one of my favorite places Earl Warren Show Grounds! Such a beautiful antique show with some of the finest dealers coming together to help benefit Child Abuse. I was honored to be a part of this show. Thank you April Thede for all your help and assistance in making my first show with you successful!
Here are a few pictures of my booth~I wanted to share some of the others, but being by myself all weekend, I didn't get around to take pictures. (sorry) I did however meet some amazing, friendly dealers!
Aren't these cast iron urns GORGEOUS? They have a new home now....I have decided to keep them! (for those of you that really know me~I love to garden) I have the perfect spot for them too!
That awesome finial SOLD first thing Friday morning to a decorator in Los Angeles. (such a statement piece)
I love mannequins in my booth, especially love this child size one, very old and RARE. She is covered in old sheet music and makes such a beautiful statement at the front of my booth.
These gorgeous urns from a Florida Estate find SOLD! They looked amazing on the old store counter and backed by a pair of European shutters. The large blue French enamelware pot was scooped up my one of my favorite new customers...she also purchased all 5 of my burlap grain sack ruffled pillows for her garden!
I'm looking forward to the next C.A.L.M. show to be held the 27th, 28th, and 29th, of January. Please visit the website for more information here
Now for the switching gears!!! I'm leaving tomorrow for The All American Quarter Horse Congress!! Held in Columbus Ohio from October 7th through Oct. 30th. The Congress is the largest single breed horse show in the world. Bringing over 15,000 horses, and 650,000 spectators to the Columbus area. Can you tell how excited I am?? I will be grooming 2 of my favorite horses and taking care of one very special girl Marley Mainwaring! I love my job!!
This is Marley and Little Credit Needed aka Buster at the 2009 All American Quarter Horse Congress! I get to work with one of my favorite horse trainers Jan Ball, whom I've known since I was 10 years old. We have a blast together! That is me with the Mini Aussie (Missy) and Jan is on the end with her dog (Smokey). Even the dogs are excited to go to the Congress! You can visit Jan Ball Performance Horses here
Isn't she just the cutest kid EVER!!!?????
So that is it for now my friends....when I get back from the horse show I will be selling at the Long Beach Flea Market on the 30th of October!! Whew!!! What a month!!! Have a great week!!
