Karla, this post gives me goosebumps!!! Everything is so sparkly, vintagey and happy!!!!! I just want to jump in like a little kid. I wish I were going to Silver Bella with all you lucky girls :)
Love and hugs,


Oh I hope someday to attend Silver Bella - everything looks so pretty!



Looks like you are just about ready to roll...have a wonderful time! Still hopeful to win some of those awesome trims...

Stay Cozy, Carrie

Maybe it is just as well florida is too far from Silver Bella because I could just buy one of everything you show.
I hope you will be putting stuff on your etsy if it doesn't sell. Even leftovers would be grand.

I am green with envy right now! lol I am so jealous of all those Bellas! Great pretties you have love everything! As I read some blogs of Silver Bella Girls they all have such beautiful things made for gifts and swaps and now you had to further make me feel sad I am not going by showing all these pretties...May Silver Bella be Fabulous for you and yu and all those talented women have a wonderful time...of course you will....Maybe if I click my heels 3 times and wish I can go to Silver Bella the Wicked Stepmother will let me go? lol Have Fun Grace xoxoxoxox

I do many shows myself and know the time and energy that must be put into the preparation. Everything looks beautiful. You are going to do great. Blessings to you.


Oooo, everything is so pretty...and your plan sounds like a good one!


I LOVE love LOVE those sparkly tiara rings. BEAUTIFUL!


Well I think you have everything covered! Good luck and have fun. Hugs, Diane

Your pre-planning is so me. Seems I always run the scenario through the brain several times whenever I have a project to present. At least it helps the nerves.

Oooo I wish I was going!!! It's all so beautiful Karla! I'm sure you will sell out. What a great idea having a little practice run first, you're so organized!


All your stuff looks so pretty! I wish I could go just to shop your table! :) Andrea


I'm green with envy for everyone that gets to shop your fabulous booth at Silver Bella. If only it wasn't a 2000 mile hike for me! xo, suzy


Oh Karla...everything is so tempting! wish that Silver Bella was in my corner of the world, but then again, maybe it's a good thing for my household budget that it isn't. I would definately be setting up camp and making a pest of myself at your beautiful tables...have fun!


My gosh Karla.
I get away from reading my favourite blogs(of which you are one) for just a week or so...well maybe it has been longer... and just look what you are up to! Such pretty items for the Silver Bella. I wish I could attend.
Good luck with your sales. Have a great time!
Thanks for sharing with all of us who can't be there.

I have asked for a trip to Silver Bella for next year!!That is the only present everyone can contribute to all year!! Crossing my fingers and toes! It looks like so much fun!


This Bella's wallet is quivering....can't wait to shop at your booth again this year. You find and create the BEST treasures! See you in a few days!

Suz Reaney


Your things look just wonderful! They make me want to cry a little. I am having a bad day and just praying I am not getting the flu. I could not stand to miss Silver Bella.

Where, oh where, is Wallpaper Heaven? I think I saw it on your site before and wonder if it is on your way. I want to go there!!!!!

Hopefully...see you soon!


Hi Karla//awesome job!! I spend the winters in southern California ..from Canada..one of these days I will leave early enough to go to Silver Bella!!!Love those crown rings..Lorraine


The crown rings are so cool. Looks like it will be fun!


Can I just be honest and tell you that the only reason I am commenting on this post is for a chance at Aunt Caroline's goodies? Actually I have to add that I love the little putz houses, and do you know why they are called "putz" houses? It doesn't sound like a very nice name, what do you think? Your Friend, Bobbi

jessi nagy

hey cutie,
eekkk look at all your cute stuff.
woo hoo
see ya soon


I am astounded that you "practice set up". I've NEVER been that organized. You'll have a blast, and sell out. Maybe I'll be there with you next year (supplies only, I swear)! XOX

Wendy McDonagh-Valentine

I can't wait to see everyone's pictures from Silver Bella!! I am drooling from all of the eye candy that I've been seeing on the blogs of people who are attending!! : )

Oh, I so wish I could come! You will have such a great time! Looks like you will be sharing some wonderful items, too! Best of luck to you!!

Everything looks beautiful. I usually just throw things together and it somehow works but you have the set-up mastered. Fantastic.
I have thought about that Wallpaper Heaven, several times since you posted about it last time. I still picture of you grinning from ear to ear with your finds.

Take lots of photos. You know we want to see it ALL.


I think you look like youre all set and just about ready to go! Your booth will be perfect I'm sure, and if its not.. (ONLY YOU WILL KNOW!!)
love the crown rings!
have fun !


Wallpaper Heaven? I know you'll take photos so we can all drool...

Oh Karla...you are making my heart go fast pitter patter with all of your sneak peaks for Silver Bella! I am so looking forward to meeting you and will see you at the Glitter Lounge on Thursday!! Safe travels.


Hi Karla,
Have a great time at Silver Bella and please, please
take pictures for us. Your booth is going to be
lovely. Love! Love! the sweet crown rings and your
special bottled vintage glitter.
Will you be selling any of the glitter in your shops?


Jennifer Hayslip

Sooo excited Karla!! You stuff looks yummy! I'll be first in line at the froofy table and waiting for my signed book! :) XO,Jenn


Oh I can not wait! It looks fabulous! I want one of those crown rings! Can' wait to see you in the glitter lounge! Also please add my name in for the trims. I am so into fabric, trims and fiber this year!


My heart is broken that I can't make the Silver Bella vendor faire to see you ladies! Sadly, I cannot afford the price of the ticket to get in to shop at the vendor faire (so NOT fair). Have fun - your thinks look beautiful. Maybe I'll catch ya in KC again next Spring!


looks so yummy!

Paula Kay

the altered book is darling. love the "sister" theme & how you found such a soft vintage book to build on! i might have to try that too, if i could find such a book...


* crosses mental toes and fingers, too * Here's hoping everything travels well and your efforts successful for solving last year's setup problems.

And that you sell enough to have room to pack your spoils from Wallpaper Heaven. ;->
