Looks yummy. Oh,oh, oh Karla...the mermaid figurine/potato masher redecorating story, this is so wonderful. It warms my heart. I guess you could take pictures of the heirloom treasures and post them about the house. have fun at Miss Frenchie's...now you got me thinking about bottle brush trees! Joy joys.

I love your painted tree mural with places for ornaments to hang. It would be fun to paint one for a Christmas window for next year... I can't believe I'm thinking of next year already.


ooooh!! I wish I could come! It looks like it's going to be wonderful! I love your mural, it looks like you could walk right through the arch.
Have a great time!

It looks like it's going to be an amazing event - so many ultra-talented women in one place! If we could, my buddy Shannon and I would come all the way down from Montreal for the fabulous Miss Frenchie's Holiday Brocante!


Everyone loves dessert! Your area is beautiful and your background is a real eye catcher.I can see why they invited you to share your wares!
Those giant french cards would look grand in my house all year. I bet they cost a pretty penny to have printed.Keep warm and lots of customers! Hugs, Terri


Everything looks fabulous!!!
Have a wonderful weekend,
