Laurie Anna and her staff were wonderful. They never got flustered and worked the floor and the checkout like the Rockettes, perfect choreography. All the shoppers and guests were welcomed with coffee, noshes, smiles and champagne. Champagne in the morning...absolutely decadent. I loved it!!!
From here on out I figure I'll be talking to myself since I know you are now busily clicking to enlarge. Go ahead. I really don't mind. Y'all know I love the sound of my own voice. I'll just keep myself company. Take your time looking around because there is a lot to see.
If spring doesn't get here real soon, it's not the only thing that will be busting out all over! You can't help but be in the mood for bunnies and a little egg hunting. Her displays put you in the mood!
If you don't get inspiration for an Easter brunch just looking at her tablescapes, well all I can say is no more champagne for you!
Just takes your breath away, right? Linger a while longer. I'll just keep talking to myself. I saw so much I wanted to take home, but I showed restraint...for a while. Then spring fever took over and I dived in with the rest of the lovely ladies!
I adore carpenter's benches and this was a peach of one! See Pam, faux is wonderful!
I could tell a joke here, but I'm afraid it would lay an egg! Get it? Lay an egg! I crack myself up. Oh there I go again....crack up! Again, I can say these things because I know I'm the only one listening. You are probably at the last photo right now and getting ready to start over. Just be sure and pick up your jaw on the way back up because I know it dropped on the way down!
How does she come up with these displays? Her sense of styling is a dream come true for the rest of us.
Patina Green had created a beautiful look on the front porch. I was immediately drawn to this wonderful sink. I was already planning on just the spot for it. We got there at 9:10 a.m. and it was already SOLD! They opened at 9:00. I won't be 10 minutes late for the next event, I promise you that!
I also fell madly in love with these jute smocked drapes. So much so, I think I want to marry a pair. I'm going to think about which room I would like to use them in and measure. They also come in tab tops and other fabrics. The pillows were unique and reflected simplicity with `elan.
Just a wonderful, relaxed feeling came over me looking down the porch. The only thing missing was a mint julep.
They sell these Fab U Lous cot mattress covers as well. Forget the air mattresses for overnight guests. Buy cots and place these on them to treat your guests like royalty. I guarantee sweet dreams will follow.
Am I still talking to myself? I am? Well, I think I'll just sing to myself since no one is listening. "How you gonna keep 'em down on the farm, after they've seen Paree'?" (That just popped in my head) This is how! Very french farmhouse!
Willow Nest was, as is expected, beautiful beyond words.
Linda and Ludmil always bring a feeling of calm with their displays.
Aren't these adorable! I just loved them. Is this what is meant by having all your chicks, or ducks, in a row?
Starting to feel your nesting instincts trying to break free? Go ahead, indulge yourself. You can thank me later.
Now here are Cat Daddy's favorites...M & M's!!!!
That is it for now kiddies. OH NOW YOU ARE LISTENING ! I see how it is. Well what would you say if I told you.......TO BE CONTINUED!
I'd like to end this by saying thank you for all the lovely comments that were left about my mother. You all made me smile and cry(but in a good way). Bless your loving hearts. Mother would have loved all of you and you would have loved her. Thank you!
