Cats and Hats and Things, oh my!

It’s a GIRL!  Congratulations to my friend Gina, who is celebrating a baby shower for her best friend Melissa this weekend!  I have the honor of designing shower invitations and making up the cutest batch of baby favors I’ve done in a long time….in one of my fav themes from the 60’s.  See - - -




enough cats, fish, hats, ‘things’ and primary FUN for a party of 40! 

Congratulations Melissa and daddy Chief, on your baby girl!!!  Hugs all around, thanks for letting me be a part of your celebration!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Everything is Coming Up Roses!!!

We all love roses, and if you are like me, we LOVE beautiful artwork.  Well guess what, my friends??!!!  Christie Repasy (sigh!) has started a new blog called “Chateau de Fleurs”!  I, for one, can’t wait to visit her daily to see what is new and inspiring in her world.  Please click on the picture below (from her blog!) and say hello…welcome her to our world…and enjoy her beautiful work and life. 


I’ve come to know her work from many different place over the years.  She has been published in many magazines and we all see her artwork (yardlongs!) in the shops we visit.  Welcome to the world of blogging Christie!

After your visit to Christie,  stop by the Country Roads blog for a visit.  Pure eye candy at every turn, and the first place I stop when I’m in Orange (SoCa!).  Thanks to Sue, the owner, for posting about Christie on her blog  ‘My Country Roads’

Please stop by both blogs to say hello!

Have a wonderful weekend!

A Fabulous Announcement!!!

Who are these ladies:


And why are they so happy?!

Meet my fellow ‘Roomies’, the amazing women from Room With a Past in Walnut Creek.  We are always this happy, especially on Thursday night openings!  RWAP is open the third (usually!) weekend of each month, starting Thursday evening (see the RWAP website for dates and times of openings).  It is the most AMAZING shopping in the bay area, if you have not tried it…you MUST!  You’ll be hooked the moment you step in the door.

As if this bunch of giddy gals wasn’t happy enough, RWAP owner Susan announced recently that the RWAP family is growing and she is opening another fabulous shop!!!

Learn more about  Paris Flea Market  on the Roomie Blog.

If you think RWAP is spectacular, wait ‘til you see Paris Flea Market in Livermore, you won’t believe your eyes!  Brace yourselves people…you are in for a shopping treat.

PFM will open in May…I’ll keep you posted here!

Have a wonderful weekend!
