Thankful……that is how I a feeling. I am beyond thankful for the outpour of comments and emails I have received regarding "En Le Jardin". I wish I could personally give you all a big bouquet of flowers for making me smile and "light up inside" with your heartfelt compliments and kind praises . I usually try my best to reply to every comment that is left for me, and Im sorry that I've been unable to at this time. I put my family on the "back burner" for a bit, and so Im trying to make up by playing SUPER MOM and spend a bit less time on the computer, and focus my attention on my family. Life is slowly getting back to order now, and I can finally relax and "breathe" again. ;)
I am also incredibely thankful for the "oh so me" hostess gifts I received from the ladies. They are all too wonderful not to share, and their is some great "Eye Candy!"
Karla Nathan constantly amazes me!!! She is talented in so many levels and art mediums. The above photo is of a sweet southern paddle fan she made, as well as this darling fairy print t-shirt she designed and created for me to wear.
She even made the seam bind ruffle trim!!! I LOVE it!!!!
This precious figurine was given to me from the lovely Kim Caldwell. How sweet is she holding her umbrella.
My big sissy Jessi ALWAYS knows how to spoil me. Juicy Couture perfume!
An artist that inpsires me SO much and I was giddy to meet at my event was the super kind Kris Hurst. She offered to come to Macon to help me with my event. Kris and her lovely friend Marilyn helped me with the set up, decorating, cutting the flowers, and helping my Mom in the kitchen. She also came bearing gifts. Kris is helping ME!!! Im the one that should be showering her with gifts! LOL!!!
I giggled and squelled when I saw this darling vintage flamingo box. CUTE!
Tucked inside the box was this gorgeous beauty.
Kris was also so kind enough to give each of my flower fairies a beautiful paper envelope full of vintage pretties. Unbelievable she is!
It was such a treat and delight to meet and make new friends. Kristen Pare took my breathe away by making this "pretty in pink" angel form, and gorgeous bracelet that she made from vintage jewelry pieces. Thank you Kris! I love my gifts!
My "best bud" and darling friend Cheryl Dack made the sweetest little fabric flower brooches for the vendor fair. This sweet and delicate brooch was my favorite pick!
The sweet and lovely Jennifer Grenko surprised me with one of my favorite collectables. Storybook Dolls! Looove them Jennifer! Thank You!
Even tho' my Australian friend Miss Natasha could not attend she still took it upon herself to make me a little decorative trinket box and fill it with pretty trims. So pretty!!!!
Gorgeous parisian inspired tote bag and french milled soap was a gift from the FABULOUS lady who was "Raised in Cotton" Carol Spinski.
A beautiful large handmade tussie filled with flowers from my new friend and very kind Teresa.
Check out the yummy pink girlie gifts from Sherry. I truly cant say enough wonderful things about Sherry!!! She is the kindest person that would do ANYTHING for you!! She is incredibly generous and giving of herself.
I ALWAYS go from one project to another. I've just recently gave my Grandmothers old antique dresser a new shabby cottage look and it now has a pefect spot in Miss Vivi's room. I've been dressing it up and playing with sweet vignettes because the FABULOUS FIFI is comming back to my home in 2 WEEKS to shoot Vivi's nursery and my outdoor garden room!!!! EEEEK!!! Im sooo excited! Fifi and Dan the photographer are so relaxed and fun to be around. It will be such a treat to have her here in my home again!
Sugary sweet faux cupcakes made by the sweetest soul little bluebird herself….Rosalyn-Sue. ;)

I'll give you a BIG hint who it's from!!!! Velvet Strawberries!!! 😉
She is too cute for words, and I just love her dangling strawberries. tee! hee! I adore Andrea !!!! She is such a SWEETHEART and a wonderful friend, and Im just tickled over my paperdoll and vintage inspired sweet treat glitter tags!!! YUMMMM!!!
On our girls day trip to Savannah I found these DARLING vintage "glow in the dark" prints at @home Vintage General. Sooo dang sweet!!!
Are you ready for more cuteness??? I about DIED when Miss Tiffany handed me a gift bag of these vintage rubber cuties.
It looks like she's giggling. "Tee hee!"
Tiffany also made these darling little purses and the best part of it is she made them out of little baby girl rompers!!! SWEEEET! When not using, I've choosen to hang mine up over Vivi's dresser.
This vintage handbag must have been VERY popular for it's time, because I got a HUGE laugh when my sweet friends Lorraine Rose and Jennifer Grenko both showed up to my house carrying the exact same bag. hee! hee!
This very last gift I share with you I absolutely adore! It brought a HUGE smile to my face when I first layed eyes on it. Angela Meeks created this whimsical fairy toadstool. Soooooo CUTE!!!!!
Peek a Boo!!!!
Thank you Angela! She sits sweetly in Miss Vivi's room.
A flower for you all to show my appreciation and gratitude for all the amazing sweet kind words and praises I have received regarding En Le Jardin. My heart is OVERJOYED with happiness!
