  1. Oh it is all draping with beauty!!! I would have bought stuff at your booth most definetly. I absolutely love your outfit. I know how much work goes into it but it sure is fun.

  2. Oh mon amie, I just adore this post! It is bringing back the fun memories of that weekend and what a joy it was to spend it with you. You made me laugh AND cry in this post - laugh at your hilarious joke that I was sitting all day on my butt, and cry at those sweet words at the end. I just love how you captured all our visitors and new friends, too. And I can't get over your amazing close-up shots of our booth! You zoomed in on so much with that amazing eye of yours.
