Christy Repsay...

Hello and HAPPY Saturday to my pinky rose lovin' girlies,
I sure hope you are all out and about having some wonderful fun, on this beautiful sun shiney day in So. Cali..I actually had a big, fun day, and am rather pooped now !! I LoVe that feeling after running around all day, going fun places, and buying some beautiful, found treasures !! It was one of my girlie ,girl friends birthdays, so we met for lunch, and than spent the afternoon at the "Glitterfest".. It is a fabulous venue of artists.. The best of the best.. No junkie here girls.. Christy was here, and I had to go get a picture from her.. You all know I just LoVe her work.. There was soo much to pick from, soo I did finally decide on this little print.. She frames them in the coolest old wooden frames, and they all look so lovely.. I also bought some bottle decoraters that hang from ribbon, and go great on my decanters.. soo pretty and sweet.. I've tried to show these in the picture, but I always say, I'm not a photographer, but, I think you can see to get the idea.. I was thrilled as always to see her..she is the sweetest, most gracious lady, and is always so kind..such a pleasure to buy from such a wonderful talented lady...I had to snap her picture..I did buy other pretties form other vendors, but, will share those later.. This was just the highlight of my day !! I hope you enjoy taking a peek, and let me tell you, if the "glitterfest" comes to a town near you, run there.. It was a treat.. Sooo much to see, and all the vendors and artists, are the sweetest ladies EvEr !! It was such a FuN day, and my birthday friend, had a wonderful buy her own presents kinda day !!
I'm sure hoping you are all happy, and feeling blessed and well..we had a happy birthday day here... God is good my friends.. Keep your eyes and hearts lookin' heavenward..

  5. Tanza ~ Hi there! Your decanters are gorgeous! I can see you and your Birthday friend had a great day - my idea of getting exactly what you want for your Bday is to just buy it yourself. Just like your friend did. What fun!

    I have spent some time on your blog and checked older posts - I left a comment on your "sad day" post. Please read it too. I will be signing up as your follower in just a moment.

    Please stop by my new blog (Beauty and Blessings) when you have a moment.

  6. Dear Tea...I'm soooo sad I couldn't be there for Glitterfest. :( :( :( Poo Poo Pooooo! But, you did get to meet again the ever popular and sooooo hugely talented (and blessed) Christie Repasey. God is so good and faithful to direct our paths, huh?

    Maybe I can come next year. Maybe Mr. AGPMan can give me an early birthday present! ?????

    Love you...missing you.

  14. Hi Tanza,
    Firstly - I cried reading about your dog, Marci Belle - I really know how you feel - it's so hard. Those 'kids' are so deep in your heart and they are so much in your life, the loss is incredible. I'm with ya. It's almost a little easier knowing they had a great life and went peacefully with no suffering. I'm so sorry for you - so heartfelt, I can barely take it.

    But, everyday counts so I'm happy for you that you got out and did your favorite things. Looks like you scored from Christie and had a great day of looking at beautiful stuff.

    Talk to you soon -
    Marsha

  15. I said Firstly because I had a few other comments, but wanted to start with the most important - then I forgot.

    The other things is - glad you love Rachel's new book, I haven't seen it and was curious what other people had to say - if you say it's great I'm gettin it. I hear she's having a signing in Malibu at the Book Store by Marmalade, { forget the name right now } could be soon.

    Enjoy your weekend at the beach -
    Marsha

  16. Hello, Tanza,
    I would love to go to Glitterfest! It sounds just like my kind of place. I am glad you got to go and shop and spend time with your friend. Your Christie Repasy is so pretty. I have several of her prints. She was having a sale here a few weeks back, buy one, get one free, quite a deal, I think. I spoke to her on the phone and felt like I was talking to a celebrity!! How wonderful to get to meet her in person!! I love the decanter hangers, so, so sweet! Blessings to you, dear friend!! Vicki
