I'm ....

This five day show was the longest I've ever done.
Thankfully we had (pretty) great weather most of the time,
even though I almost melted a couple of afternoons.
I'm so thankful to have been a part of it,
as it turned out to be one of those experiences I'm glad I didn't miss.
I couldn't have done it without my selfless husband,
 my great friend Riki,
and my wonderful daughter ~ Melanie!
Before the show, we had two days of shopping in Warrenton...which was the BEST.
We shopped, laughed and walked a lot!
Here's a picture of Mary, Melanie and Riki
on what Melanie thought must have been the very first  
bike cab!
I saw old friends and met new ones.
Rita, Charlene, =), Sandy and Susie.
Amy, =) and Karen.
=) & Cindy (Crawford *wink*
 Sandy, Charlene, Susie, Karen, Joy
Rita, Cindy, Riki & =)
at Theresa's Blog Party.
 Barb from Arizona, who will be taking a couple of my classes
at Art Unraveled, stopped by to introduce herself,
which was such a surprise!
Here's a picture we took with Jenny, who is a Facebook friend from Minnesota.
Jenny actually caught me while Riki & I were walking through Warrenton.
She was there selling some of her jewelry!
And, of course, my great friend Agnes,
who gave me the opportunity to be a part of the show next to her in Tent "W".
This week I will share more pictures of what Riki and I did the day she arrived, 
as well as the next two days we spent in Warrenton.
One of those being with Mary and Melanie
 at the show opening of Clutter.
Yep....we had quite a time!

Hi Diane! I met you briefly at Warrington. I was the one who bought the beautiful pink chair(under the tent) and was admiring your amazing jewerly! Anyhow, wanted to say hi and it was such a pleasure to meet you. Your artwork is just amazing.

I love that you all wear rhinestones in the day and with super cool casual is a beautiful thing!

Oh Diane, the much-anticipated posts are here! I know it must be difficult to capture all of your experiences in a blog post (let alone the time to edit all of these wonderful pictures), but we are here eagerly awaiting an update and you delivered! :-) Looks like a fantastic time was had by all. Just look at all of the smiles from friends old and new. Jewelry, antiques and good friends = what a dream! :-)

It feels good to be HOME doesn't it!!!! I just did a fast dash to Oklahoma City after California & then Round Top... WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??????? I'm ready to rest & catch up now. And I have so many things swirling in my head to be created. That's good because the well has seemed dry until you primed the pump at Heart Strings... HUGS!
