The Fancy Flea Was The Place To Be

 Today was a beautiful day in Florida and a perfect day for the Fancy Flea.
The Market was buzzing with busy vendors when we arrived and I could tell that this was indeed worth the trip from Tampa to sunny Lakeland FL.
The market is held in the spring and the fall each year.
 The vendor from this space is actually in a shop in Tampa called Relic which is right down the street from  Summer House Marketplace.  
 I love her creativity!
 You may recognize this beautiful clothing from Kim of Paris Rags.  She tempts me every time!
 Say "cheese" Deb!
Sweet Deb from Vintage Soul.
Her shop is another worth the trip outing,
located in St. Cloud, FL
 I'm kicking myself that I didn't bring these home for the Shabby Old House!!
 Shopping in this wonderful space was Shelley from Sweet Pea Home.  I love her style!
And although I didn't get a picture because my arms were filled, I ran into my dear friend Jane from Artfully Graced who was there with new blogger friends.
How did you spend your Saturday?
I hope you filled it up to the top with great things, just like I did my truck!

Tornados and the Beauty of Volunteers

 Lessons from the garden...

 Sweet determined surprises whether in groups of many or just one willing to move heaven and earth to appear.

 And who cares if they come in a Cracked Pot
 Just as long as they come!

Praying for the victims of yesterday's storm and that the beauty of volunteers would been seen everywhere!

Fifi O'Neill's Book Signing at Posh On Palm

 I had the privilege of attending a book signing party for Fifi O'Neill given by Susie and Mark Holt at their beyond beautiful shoppe, Posh on Palm in Sarasota FL.   Fifi, is known for filling our minds monthly with beautiful inspiration from the pages of Romantic Country to her current work of artistic wonderment, " Romantic Prairie Style."  To finally make her acquaintance was a very special treat for me!  Don't you just love the Cowgirl boot bouquets?
Susie and Fifi have long paired Beauty and Romantic living as a signature to everything they touch.
I think we should hail them as the Romantic Beauty Queens!
I found Fifi to be a charming lady with a cute sense of humor and the store filled up with many of her friends and followers.
The atmosphere was breathtaking as Mark and Susie had made sure that this was a glorious event for their special friend Fifi  and their delighted guests.

Just as I can assure you that this was indeed a beautiful evening I can assure you as well that you too can  experience the same moments of beauty on each and every page of Fifi's book, 
Romantic Prairie Style.
