Hello to all my bloggy friends,
Sooo much time seems to pass that I feel like a stranger to my bloggy stuff at times ... I get so busy with everyday "got to do" stuff, that it gets soo neglected ... I miss catching up with all you girlies !! I LoVe visiting all of you, and get so many ideas, and inspiration from each of you ... it's like reading a favorite magazine, and sooo many of you, catch me up on where to go and find sweet treasures !! You all are soo up on everything ... I just get sooo excited !! Such fun ...
Well, today was a BIG day for me girlies ... Rachel came to visit all her admiring fans here in Orange, at Orange Circle, in Country Roads Antique store .. One of my favorite shoppes around, GIGANTIC, and beauty surrounds !! Such eye candy, and pretty "must haves" everywhere .. The dealers here display everything so nicely, and their treasures for sale are the tops around !! There is always something I can't live without !! hahaha ..
I have to tell you tho, I went here this morning to get in line to have my new Rachel book signed and to see the Shabby Queen herself !! The line was around the corner of this fabulous store !! I had to be somewhere in an hour, so sadly I had to leave .. had so looked forward to this day .... Well, after, I did what I had to do, I went to lunch with my hubby, and he agreed to take his very sad wife back to see if the line was smaller yet, well it was, and she was STILL there signing away, visiting with each guest, and taking pictures .. I was sad tho, cuz I had taken my book home, and left it there earlier, BUT wonderful Sue, who owns the store, said take one of my books and get it signed, and than just bring the other back .. How wonderful of her to offer and make this day sooo special for me !! She truly is such a sweet, very giving lady .. That's why I always go back to her place ... Well, I ran to get in line, and ran in to my very good friend Linda, I had to share her picture with you as well, we LoVe the same things, and she is a shabby lovin' girly as well .. We always seem to run into each other at events like this .. So I was able to catch up with her, visit with Rachel, and even was able to stay for her story telling time .. She is soo sweet, and kind- hearted ... very down to earth, and really is all about, getting back up, brushing your self off, and moving forward !! She has been through soo much this past year, I can't EvEn imagine sharing with soo many of us girlies, and not shedding tears anymore !! She's simply amazing, and after her chat, I want to go back, and read my book deeply this time (not just drooling over the pictures) but, to feel her emotions, and how she is changing things up, just a little .. She still LoVes pink, and greens, and pretty blues, BUT, more softly muted now, and she shared pictures of how you can bring in dark and chunky ... Can I just say, I left with a bounce in my walk, and my creative juices a flowing .. Soo many wonderful ideas ... It was such a wonderful day, and to see the Lord send me back in HIS time to meet up with old friends, chat with Rachel, and than to be able to be there for her talk ... Can I just say AMAZING !! See girlies, again God is always good, and faithful, I'm learning more to be in HIS time, NOT always my time .. It couldn't of been more exciting,rewarding, and I left feeling so up and good !! Can't wait to read this some more ... girlies, if you haven't picked this up, ooohh please go get this book .. You will Sooo LoVe and enjoy it ... If I could eat it up, oohhh girlies I sure would !! She is the Queen, and just be waiting for the "new" dreams she is dreaming up !! So Fun~
I hope you are all feeling well, and doing what your sweet hearts are dreaming of !! Thanks for stopping by, and always leaving such sweet, encouraging words ... I LoVe my girlie girls sooo much ... Have a happy Jesus filled week ~
Big pink hugs ~tea~xo
