Relay for Life Team for the American Cancer Society. I'll post about it with photos later this week - I'm tired and a bit drained for the event but good news ~~~~ we raised $5500. WAHOO! Now for a little Apron LOVE! I found this cutie at Pier I tonight - we were getting dinner at Pei Wei and stopped in to Pier I for a quick browse - sooo cute! They only had one at this location but are due to get more in - you need to pick one up
Have you ever looked forward to meeting someone that you admire only to be disappointed by the expectation that you had of them? This was NOT the case - Serena is the most gracious and sweet lady you will ever meet, really lovely in every way and I only wished we could have spent more time with each other. I won't be able to get up their way for the show in a few weeks but I am definitely planning to visit Serena and Teri next year! If you don't have this book already (maybe I'm the only one that didn't) run don't walk to pick up a copy - it's lovely! The recipes are wonderful, the photographs are gorgeous and the stories of how they started their dream are inspiring to say the least! Thank you Serena for the wonderful gift!
Hugs, Erin at 7:51 PM
Janice of the Faded Cottageand her mom were such dolls! They come for every show from Las Vegas and shop and shop and shop! Below is the cute chippy potting bench that she took home - not sure how she managed to pack it in her car but where there's a will there's a way!
I also had a visit from Lidy of the Little French Garden House who stopped by for a quick hello before she went home to get ready for the amazing baby shower she was hosting - the gorgeous photos are on her blog. My friend Laura also had a space and she was introducing her line of shoe huggers - as soon as her web-site is ready I'll add the linky - they are really cute and the fabrics they chose are wonderful! It was an awesome day and I'll be back there on August 1st for the next Peddlers Market! I don't have many shows on my agenda for this summer - it's just too hot...
