If This is Heaven....

Then God saw fit to move it to Athens, Texas.

The Divine Mr. M knew how bad I wanted to go
to Winnie and Tulula's Rememberance of Christmas
so he hog tied me and threw me in the truck.

Not really...I was already in the truck with the motor running yelling....
"Let's Go Alreadeeeeee!"

(all while honking the horn and waving my arms.)

Along the way there were two hitch hikers who seemed kinda friendly
mainly my sis
and my niece, Morgan.

After five.....yes, I said five.....
long hours we arrived.
My mouth hit the floor when I walked in.
Nothing....and I mean NOTHING
could have prepared me for the beauty that was present.

I was drooling like I had a mouthful of novocaine.
My heart was skipping all kinds of beats.
I could barely move when I got was that spectacular ladies (and Troy .)

My very first beeline destination
was to see my fairy blog mother
and daddy.....
Cat Daddy that is!!!!!
Debbie and Cat Daddy of Talking Trash took my breath away!!!
Between the TO-DIE-FOR angel
and the smelling salts worthy dining room table
I felt weak....

My sis wanted to share my fairy blog parents...

Next to Talking Trash
was Curious Goods.

Her booth was divine.
 ( I really thought I was going to have to sit down.)

Of course the night wouldn't have been complete
if I didn't get to see Mindy
Mindy never fails to shine
and that night her light was set to sparkle.

I finally had the honor and pleasure of meeting
I bought a great deal of items from her booth.
I have this thing for architectural salvage.
Bolts, springs, rust, and God help me
if there's a doorknob or a faucet around.
Margo had ALLL of that!!!!

It was a merry christmas indeed for meeeee!!!

The hostess with the mostess
was of course
Gloria from Sweet Pea.

Her custom bedding and finds are
simply exquisite.
I honestly don't have enough words to describe how awesome
this venue is.
Everyone sooo outdid themselves.

I fell in love with this look....

Keeping Christ in Christmas.

This daybed under this canopy of gentle branches
and soft lights stopped me dead in my tracks.
I literally caught myself going
out loud.

I did hear snickers behind me.....
I didn't care.

I am sooo in love with this table.

Cat Daddy giving
the Divine Mr. M
some sage advice on being married to a junker.

On my christmas list...

Winnie and Talula's
wasn't simply a christmas open house.
Gloria and the other ladies raffled prizes
to raise money for the
Rescue Rabbit fund.
the Divine Mr. M became quite smitten
with this little lady.
We are discssing adopting her and bringing her into the fold.

Jewelry and favorite things.

This fine gentleman was our DJ for the evening.
He definitely kept the evening festive.
From blues to country to christmas....
the atmosphere was phenominal.

Theresa's window display was beautiful
and so serene.
I am in luuuuuurrrve with that mantle.

This tree was soo inspiring.

As the evening sky lost its rosy hue
and darkness settled in for the night,
the lights in Winnie and Talula's
continued to glimmer.
There was much laughter
(especially by Mindy....."Both of you?"....LOL)
and smiles.
In the midst of such beautful treasures and gorgeous finds
were even more beautiful friends
and wonderful family.

I was overjoyed to be amongst people
that I can call my friends
and to have made new friends as well.
As I left that night, I was happy.
Mr. M said that I slept all the way home....with a smile on my face.
