The Sweetest Surprise

This weekend was the Vintage Heaven monthly sale. This is one of the pop-up shops I never miss. In fact, I have only missed one sale in the 3 years I have been participating. I honestly look forward to every one of these sales, not just to sell but to hang out with some of my dearest friends I have met doing the sales. Each month, I constantly meet fantastic new customers and amazingly talented vendors. Mary Miller is one of these talented people I met last spring. She is a fabulous artist and her elegant illustrations are just simply stunning! I have purchased these in the past, framing one for myself and giving others as wonderful gifts. 

Today, Mary surprised me with an illustration. I was on a flyer for last months sale and Mary did this illustration of it. I was blown away! It was so flattering, I don't think I could have thanked her enough:) Seriously, the best gift I have gotten in a long while. Thank you Mary for you talent! 
Please check out Mary's illustrations at the monthly Vintage Heaven pop-up shop!
Don't forget about the 15% off sale at Dethrose Vintage!! Sale ends at Midnight tomorrow!

Black Friday...yeesh!

The Holidays are here already?!?! Don't get me wrong, I love this time of year, I mean I love it to a crazy point. I smile a lot more often this time of year. I think it's all the lights, snow and my favorite movies being replayed over and over. Also, I love getting together with friends and family!! I have already baked Blueberry Pecan Bread, Pumpkin Spice Muffins and a vat of Butternut Squash Soup...all gluten free of course:) And believe it or not, I enjoy finding little gifties for people:) 

Not only are these things keeping me busy, I have a big sale every weekend til Christmas. So as a special to all my readers and shoppers, I am having a Black Friday Pre-Sale in the Shop! Everything, including sale, is 15% off!! Starting tonight at 11pm and going through Monday morning!!
