45 Days & Counting

There is a lot going on today for me to do several posts in one day, but I just wanted to remind y'all (not that you really need one) that we are 45 DAYS away from my Blog Party.  We are actually a lot closer than that to being at the WORLD's best and bigest Antique Shows around or at least in Texas.  So, please mark your calendars for Sunday, September 26 at 6:00 pm, my booth at Zapp Hall in downtown Warrenton Texas.

I know you want to know who all will be there.  I'm so excited that Carolyn Westbrook will be there signing her new book ~ And I can tell you from the preview it's one awesome book:

Carolyn will also be at The Marburger Farms show signing books.  You don't want to miss this opporutunity to own another one of her great books, they've all been wonderful and one that you'll refer to over and over for inspiration.  I know that I have at least with all her other books that I own.

Secondly, I've invited Jill from Gypsy Brocante to come and sell some of her newest items.  I think she's going to surprise us with what she's bringing, it could be her altered art necklaces or rosette's but it really doesn't matter because all she does is great.  She's only going to the at the shows selling her things for THIS ONE DAY at my booth so you don't want to miss out (of course the rest of the time she'll be shopping).  And, if you were in attendance at last Spring's blog party, there's the chance you may have received one of her rosette's in your goody bag that Polly of Counting Your Blessings sent us.  Jill had created a special rosette for me for the party and I just loved it.


Now, speaking of Polly, she's going to be at the Blog Party too!!  Yes she is.  She's bringing these awesome goody bags and will be handing them out in person.  I'm so excited that all these great girls are coming out.


Now, what's missing?  Well, YOU of course.

During the last blog party, we had a contest to see who could make the cutest name badge and after everyone voted TOT won that giveaway.  So, I thought I would make another fun challange for this party and took my idea from Deb's suggestion that Amy of Whisperwood Cottage does at her blog parties. 

Okay, here's your fun challange: 

I'm asking that if you are planning on coming to the blog party to please bring a some type of finger food.  It can be sandwiches or dip or chips or a desert and your challange is to bring it in the most unual dish you can find or put together.  Like this one:

Now, if you still want more ideas, check out Amy's post here.  The one that brings their food in the most unique dish wins the prize.  You all will be the judges.  Thanks Deb for the suggestion.   


  1. You're most welcome, but you didn't specify whether it had to taste good or not!
    I'm so excited about Carolyn and Jill. I have Carolyn's books and I treasure them. Check out the prices on her previous books on ebay...they only go up in value!
    Jill's designs are so unique, I'd be willing to bet she sells out.
    This is going to be the best party ever and yippee...Polly's coming! Is her cutie patootie hubby coming with her?

  2. I SO wish I was the second one to RSVP on your blog party list! One day I have promised myself I will be there. But until then, it is still fun to read your blog and keep up on it all! Thanks for letting me participate that way!

    Take care, Sue
