Christie Repasy at Sweet Salvage

Cindy, Christie, and Me
 I know you all must be thinking... does she ever post about anything other than Sweet Salvage?? Well, yes, I do... but I suppose my posts have been a little lacking this month! That being said, I think I am one of Sweet Salvage's biggest fans. Every month is treat for the eyes and this month was no exception. I was so happy to bring my friend Cindy from Lillys Lace with me this month. Cindy came over from Texas to visit me and I promised I would take her to this months sale.  Their very special guest was the extremely talented Christie Repasy. She was very sweet and her beautiful artwork was every where.

 Aren't these just lovely???

 Here in Az. we are having Spring like weather and it is reflected in all lovely Spring vignettes.

 This wire cloche came home with me!! WooHoo!! I have been looking for one that I could afford forever and this one was perfect!

 I love all the silver platters and trays.

 Cindy was drooling over this lace panel window frame and if she could have fit it in her suitcase it would have gone home with her!!

I have some of this Burlap ribbon and I love it!

 Silver and roses... can you say romantic???

 Cindy stole got to this cute card before I could. :)

I'm never dissapointed when I go there!! I'll show you the goodies I brought home on the next post. Have a wonderful day my friends!! I'm going to go enjoy the rest of it with my gal pal Cindy!!!!

Pure eye candy! Thank you for the inspiring tour. I adore Christie's painting! She paints roses like no one else. What a treat to have a visit from a special friend and to get to meet Christie. Enjoy your visit.

Karen I love every post you do on them, and I love both your pages/blogs.

I am about to make a dream come true and open my open shop in March and I only hope it will be as gorgeous as this and make people feel lost in a dream when they come inside.

Keep on posting...such beautiful pictures, words, vignettes.

Please don't feel that you're posting too much about Sweet Salvage, Karen. We never tire of seeing beautiful treasures...even if they're from the same treasure chest. ;)

Where did you get this photo effect from?

Romeo said...

Purrsonally, I love that you post about all their sales! It's one of the few times "she" isn't bothering me. "She" sees your post title with Sweet Salvage and I am free....to eat all the food in the bowl, hang from the curtains and run around like a little wild man. Oh yes, PLEASE do keep posting about Sweet Salvage and your finds. My life is GOOD!



Cindy said...

I am swooning over all the beautiful things!
