All in a DAYS work

Hubs and I started our day at Veterans Flea in Long Beach today

First stop my sweet Rose, and she had her space hopping with

the ladies buying her wares...

Then we started shopping and I had to socialize with my pals from the STORE

oh the fun when you are a part of Sue's big family of Dealers

Two trips to the truck & after a long day we headed to Country Roads

I walked in and found Sue at the counter so I asked

her where the bathroom was? If you read her blog you will

be laughing by now

since its was late in the afternoon I figured it would be

the perfect time to unload some of my finds from

the weekend of junking and I was surprised to meet

a few of my customers who were there and very sweet

then just when I got back to work I heard a voice say

" Kate " and when I looked up it was cute as a button

Sheila from Tattered Goods and I screamed with

delight I have been wanting to meet her for quite some

time and I have not been well enough when she has done

a show in her area, so this was such a treat to meet her

She was there with Sara from Sweet Magnolia's Farm

even Abby and Papa Fred were there too!!!

Sara just met me so I didn't jump all over her like I did

with Sheila, next time I will though!!! I'm a warm fuzzy girl

Never in a million would I imagine being around such

wonderful and talented women doing what we do

my little tea cart went to a new home today with

a few other goodies

the white built in is still available

all of the black pieces left as well

I added this white frame to my wall collection at home

this one's a keeper too

I have new industrials this week along with some burlap

pieces I have been working on and a few more lamps

coming to # 31 at the Store

and I heart this guy so very much for pushing my cart all day

according to the very talented

Have a terrific week ladies

Oh my gosh - I am scrolling through your blog here and it is gorgeous - such eye candy! I am an L.A. girl - or was, but come down to visit often. I must get to that flea market - I have never been there before - hard to believe actually. Where is the STORE!? Everything is beautiful. I see you are a wedding planner...I was one in L.A. Until I (was forced) to move.

Hi Sweetie Pie,
It was such a pleasure to meet you in person finally... I was so tired and pooped when we finally arrived at CR's, so I want to appologize if I seemed cookey :) (lol) Your booth is so great, quaint yet simplistic meets elegant....I just loved it. I must say that CR's is a bit overwhelming, yummy, busy....these are just a few words that come to mind, as it was my first time ever being there (hehehe) Anyway it was a great day and meeting you and your Hubs was the icing on the cake to complete a wonderful weekend with such great friends.

Smiles and Blessings,

Too funny about the bathroom. I bet Sue hada good laugh over that one. Looks like you found some more goodies this weekend to add to your awesome spot at Country Roads. I'm so glad you are having such a good experience.

Take care and enjoy your week.

It looks like so much fun. I really need to do a road trip to California, I've always wanted to. You are such a DOLL!


Sue said...

It was nice for me as well to meet Sara at the end of the day. I am bad at names but did know the Tattered House and her friends that were with her. That is what I love best about Country Roads. All the people we get to visit with each day!!

Take care, Sue
