Holiday Boutique

Hello ladies!  I hope everyone had a wonderful, drama free Thanksgiving Day.
Our Holiday Boutique, this past weekend, was a blast!
I'd like to share some pics with you starting with the petite Christmas tree I designed especially for this event.
(I will work on making more for the Irvine FM this Sunday)
  Allow me to take you on a little tour of our gracious hostess' house and the setup we created for our wonderful guests. 
Walking through the front door you were greeted by a lovely jewelry table(I jumped the gun and took a picture before ALL the jewelry was priced and displayed) there was so much more including beautiful holiday clutches.
The ladies would linger around the table picking out their favorite pieces and leaving them at the hold table while they continued shopping in the next two rooms.
Up a half flight of stairs was the living room, the fireplace was going while Josh Groban and IL Divo Christmas music filled the air. Christmas themed jars lined the mantel.
Angela from the The Shabby French Home set up her religious relics in the center table.
Hey! who's big idea was it...
to leave and ugly plastic tag bag lying around while I was taking pictures? My fault for not noticing it, I guess. 
(Wish I knew how to edit it out)
These were some of our Santa items
A little silver and glass to use over the holidays
Walking back down into the kitchen area you came upon a table filled with more eye catching goodies for your home
This glass punch bowl with a silver plated base and ladle handle was valued at $125, one lucky customer walked away with it for only $75, can you believe it?  I had to keep reminding myself that I was there to sell, not to shop, or that baby would have come home with me.
And for those of you who love the Country French look Angela had some gorgeous items including her own creations of pillows, tablecloths, garment bags and handbags.
Such beautiful bright colors, these pics do them no justice.
Here are a few more house ware items
I hope you enjoyed the tour!  A very special thank you to those who came to the show and made our day so very special.  For those of you who couldn't attend, we will be at the Irvine Valley College Flea Market this Sunday with more new goodies for your shopping pleasure.

I hope to see you there!

A Lovely Addition!

We had the best time ever at our last Flea Market.
Perfect weather, tons of customers, lots of sales,
but best of all Great Company!

This is the beautiful Melinda of Alabaster Rose Designs
who was a "guest seller" at the Cosas Bellas booth.
Melinda lived in Northern California and recently
moved to The OC with her wonderful husband and
2 small boys(who are yummy treats).
And these are her beautiful vintage jewelry pieces
and soldered pendants 
She is so talented.  Her creations were a big hit
with the ladies and she did Great!
Melinda is a sweetheart with a great  attitude and a
great sense of humor,  we are thrilled that she'll be
joining us in future shows

Here are some pictures of my booth!

I will be joining two talented ladies this weekend for a Holiday Boutique which 
will be held at Aide's house,

I hope you have a chance to join us, it's going to be so much fun with lot's of eye candy!

Feathers and Flight

I have been wanting to share this Autumn poem with 
all of you since the moment I came across it a few 
months ago, but living in Southern California I couldn't
fully embrace it when we were still sweltering in 90 something degrees weather.  Apparently somebody 
forgot to inform "Mother Nature" that we had moved 
on  to a different season, you know, the cold, windy,
rainy one. lol
Well it's November 1st and that's going to have to be a 
good enough reason to share this wonderful  poem that 
has been burning a hole in my Edit Posts list. 
Well we're still waiting for the days to grow cold 
here in the OC...but I'm not complaining.  Now let me 
introduce the talented artist behind the graphics.

 Her name is Jill at Feathers and Flight and this was the 
banner that captured me the moment I first laid eyes on it.
(I'm sorry, the picture is blurry and doesn't do it justice)

Here is a different version of it
She created the Halloween banner below
for the month of October.
Besides being an absolute jewel, Jill is a talented 
graphic artist, who loves to create mixed media art, 
collage, paint and make vintage jewelry pieces.
This is Jill's current blog banner.

Please take a minute to visit Jill's blog
and get to know the beautiful spirit
behind the art.
