~Saturday Ramblings~

~An Enchanted Window Party~

If you get a chance, stop in to Cielo's beautiful blog, The House In the Roses. She's hosting an Enchanted Window Party on Monday, September 8th. Stop by her blog to read the details.

If you're not familiar with her blog, you're missing out on seeing her gorgeous rose garden and home. Just beautiful! The photo on the left is just a small glimpse of what you'll find there.

My booth is set up in the garage right now. It's been pulled out of storage, scrubbed, and painted. It's ready for the lighting to be added and tested, as well as for all the fabrics, vintage quilts and displays to be arranged. It's like setting up a giant doll house! I always dread it....but in the end, it's so nice to know that once I arrive at a show on set-up day, I know where everything goes. Fabrics have to be treated with non-flammable solution per most show's fire regulations. There's lots to do!

A week ago today, Ella and Jackson were here. It seems like an eternity ago! The last thing we did as a family before they left, was to have a Chocolate Fondue Party. Ella adores it, and favors the strawberries and pound cake! They're her Grandma's favorites, too, although the bananas, pretzels, marshmellows, and graham crackers aren't bad either!

The coffee's brewed and the booth is a-callin'. Have a joyous weekend.....whatever you do in your little corner of the world.

Sounds delicious. Don't know if my jeans could handle it. I might just rub it on my hips and be done with it...ooohhh, pretzels and chocolate. You're killing me.

Sweets for the Sweet.
Ella is such a dear.
Chocolate fondue is a special yummy treat too. I took my mom to The Melting Pot for our birthday last winter and we ate until we couldn't move.
