I guarantee you most certainly will not be disappointed!!!  I stopped in her booth this past summer and must have spent at least a good hour looking at all her SHaBBies!*!*!












 This PeRfeCTLy time-worn Bust was the first to sell...
I pulled this beauty from my personal collection...



 I've had these PeRfeCtLy ChiPPy ViNtaGe Valentine Cupids for about 3 years now...  Although these RARE beauties struck up quite a bit of interest, - they did not sell...
 Soooo glad they came back home with me - they're KEEPERS!!!















 I just loved my Valentine Tree Branch Creation...
  Honestly ~ this pic does not do it justice...  



I netted a few AwEsoMe SHaBBies for myself at show and will share some pics of them later this week...

  3. Glad you had a great weekend! I just love the vignettes you put together and I love how you always use fresh flowers and filler in your items; it just adds so much! And I'm totally in love with all your garden antiques!!
    I'm going to be doing more shows this spring & summer (more on the craft side and not so much antiques) but I put a picture of your booth side-by-side with mine and do my best to copy! ha! Isn't imitation the strongest form of flattery?! ha!

  7. Hi Jeanine,
    Happy New Year to you!
    I'm glad those cherubs didn't sell. Perfect for V-Day. It's hard parting with stuff. I have a hard time myself. It's always a coin toss.
    Great eye candy. Did the dress form sell?
