Whooee . . . what fun!  Shopping in the gratefully cool evening of beautiful Snohomish, sipping wine, snacking on gourmet goodies, chatting it up with blogger beauties, and--did I say SHOPPING?!

So nice to be the customer for a change!!   My haul included a herald-crested trivet, a tiny marble box, and a clock face from Annie's . . . and a darling metal boudoir lamp base from Faded Elegance . . . and three French towels from Curly Willow.  

ORMOLULU blog badge was making the rounds--landed on this wondeful basket full of antlers at Annie's.  All bloggers got to pick from a bowl of discounts!  Annie and Mary pulled out all the stops, serving wine, shrimp, salads, cheesebread, cookies, & dipped strawberries--delicioso!  Giveaways included cute hats, hand-made gift tags and door prizes.  

Above is am AMAZING printed mural at Annie's--larger than life!

This is Kimberley at Faded Elegance, standing in front of the most amazing French doors.  As always, she had a beautiful spread of champagne, cheeses, crackers & strawberries!  The floral lamp base on the left of the first photo above has moved from Faded Elegance to my kitchen.  

Regretfully, I didn't have my camera to capture sightings of elusive (?) bloggers such as the elegant Mimi Charmante, charming Maison Douce, always rosey A Thing for Roses, cheerleader extraordinaire A Girl Named Timi (and good sport husband), darling WSU Laura, pretty My Sweet Savannah (oops, is that right?!), and more, more, more!!!  Unfortunately, the wine got me chatting and buying instead of taking adequate photographs.  

Thank you, ladies, for a relaxing and beautiful evening!!

Was so nice to meet you in person on Saturday! I have followed your blog for sometime but I think I know folks by their blog name better than their real name, working on that!
I had a great time on my BD and Annie and all shops did a great job. Hope we can all do it again!
Hope to see you again in the future and at some of your market sales. I really want to do Sandpoint and Barn Boys , never been!
