Never So Glad To Be Home

We pulled into our driveway this afternoon and I was never so glad to be home.  Everything looked so green and my flowers had started blooming while I was away, but the biggest surprise was this:

I thought Smokes (short for Smokey Grey) was starting to look a little plump, but she didn't really want me to touch her stomach.  My son called two days before we were to pack up and told me she had had them in an empty box on the back porch.  I couldn't wait to find them once we got home.  They are so cute!

And, this gorgous blooming bush was a great welcome as well:

I can't wait to tell you about the shows.  To show you who all was there, what I saw, the fun I had and the over 350 pictures I took (my camera was starting to mess up on me, I guess no wonder with all the pics I took).  There will be so many posts to follow, but here's a teaser for you:

My booth at Zapp Hall, which this picture was the second redo once the robin's egg blue sofa sold (wait until you see the sofa, the prettiest one I've seen in a while.  I almost wish I would have kept it for myself), but it went to a new antique shop home in Louisiana.

Gina Galvin and Jo Packham's booth at Marburger was FABULOUS!!  Gina was shopping for this booth until late that evening and boy did she find some great things.

Of course you know Magnolia Pearl's (Robin Brown) booth is always so wonderful.  There's more to come.  Tons of things to get done before I start back working tomorrow.  This is one show I wish could have gone on forever, it was the best one I've had in a while and was so so much fun!!  Hope you all had a great Easter Sunday.


  1. Awww . . . what sweet little babies. So cute!

  2. Theresa, happy Easter to you and your family. Can't wait to see all the pictures. I hope you got a successful show, you worked so hard. You have been feature in many blogs, you are turning into quite the celebrity, you know? I want to see the blog party pictures, I'm surprise I have not seen more of the pictures, then I got to think most of you were still at the shows. Take care, rest and enjoy your kitties. Blessings, Marta.

  3. Hey Thresa! I got lots of stuff from your blog party, little handouts! Tim's wife, Lisa, brought them back to me. Made me feel like I was "almost there! Thanks for the pixs!!

  4. I am glad you made it home safely. It was great talking with you and thanks for the great thoughts on doing a show. You are the BEST! Oh, and my mother loved the ballerina light...thanks!

  5. Theresa & Cruz: Thanks for indulging me and letting me gab away and drool all over your displays. I had a BLAST. Can't wait to read about what I missed.... XOX P.S. Tell Cruz to practice his bank shots; I'm taking him down come spring....

  6. Your booth re-do looks absolutely gorgeous, in fact, it's the new background on my desktop. :-)

    I am soooo thrilled that you had a really great show, you deserved it. I traveled a lot of ground during the shows and viewed a lot of other vendors, and yours is just always the one which leaves me breathless.

    I know I have miles to go before I possess your skills, but your style influenced me heavily when I came back home to move and re-do my own booth. I mean, good grief, you've got me ordering wasps nests off of Etsy now! LOL!!!

    Big hugs and love,
