Wow, just wow! The show was so phenomenal! :)
I was so excited to go, I almost had butterflies in my stomach, lol ;)
Of course, the first person I encountered was Betsy Niederer. I have to admit, I was a bit star struck! A celebrity, lol, she's been on Martha! So, that was really cool. I bought six of the tiniest croissants from her. I went to put them in my purse, then I worried they might get broken. She said, "Don't worry, they're bomb proof."
Well, after that, I pretty much was in awe and the camera never came out of my purse.
But, I can show you the rest of my goodies! :)
The four matching plates just say shabby chic to me, the mirror is darling, I'm sure I'll find a good place to put that, and of course some mismatched plates featuring flowers and birds and fruit.
For my love of roses! :)
Okay, apparently these items are mass produced, but, I didn't even notice that the pattern was the same. Hubby pointed that out to me. ;)
(I'm going to have to look around in my stuff and see if they match anything else!)
I said I wasn't going to, cause, I haven't used the stuff I bought last year, but they were half off.
And I still had some money left! :)
So, there's my big purchases. lol
The show was just utterly amazing, the talent in so many different arenas and in the various scales.
Almost overwhelming! There were furniture makers, dollhouse makers, stitchers, glass blowers, miniature painters. Oh, I could go on and on. It was just a lovely show and so cool to get to see all that is out there.
I've surpassed 100 followers, cool! :)

Okay, so I guess I have to follow through with my give away now. I think I'm going to run it through to November 22, I'll announce the winner that evening. The giveaway is a $20. gift certificate to my etsy shop and all you have to do is comment on any of the posts since the last giveaway to be entered to win.
Easy peasy, but, I think it's going to take me a while to write down all of those names! ;)
Guess I better get busy ;)
