Everything we heard was true, everyone of the vendors were fabulous! We loved seeing LuLu and our friends at Retreat Kennedy, Shabby Scraps, Nia from Summerland and from our side of the mountain, Ann from The Nestting.

Kim of MiMi Charmante...a very sweet and talented lady (we met her at The Barnhouse, she took care of our every need at The July Barnhouse Flea Market)

We are so happy that we were able to support the TATA's....We shopped and shopped and visited old time friends,Sara and her cute hubby Yani..

They talked about there plans to start a family. She asked me if I would be a surrogate :) The answer is NO!!! If I can do it 3 times you can do it once yourself...
On Sat. night we visited Melissa her baby Judah and daughter Juliana. It was Melissa's 31st Happy Birthday! Happy "B" Melissa... Her kids are soooooo adorable!!! We love her and her beautiful family.
