Great Days... Lots to Share

This is a long post (mostly photos though ;)

I received my hearts purchased from the one & only Fifi

Love, love, love them!
What doesn't that sweet Fifi know how to do...?
Take a look at her blog if you haven't been there already
to see all the different hearts she's created!

Next, would you like to take a ride up the hill
from My Petite Maison

To the Barn Sale
at my friend, Cathleen's house
in beautiful Wine Country?
Poor me, I clocked it... I can get there
In 7 minutes

Okay, I admit it - not my bicycle,
This one is Cathleen's (I've got the sister bicycle ;)

Let's enter... Please do not get in my way~

Love this corbel... may have to grab it...

Look at ALL the windows

Smells very pretty in here (my kind of barn)

It was so great, I went back three times
~Next week I'll show you the mirror I purchased!

And the end to a great, very vintage weekend...

It was Cathleen's birthday
A surprise party Sunday afternoon
(Success to the secret planner of the event!)

A little sparkling wine
Very nice gifts
Chocolate Eclairs (from world class French Bakery in town)
Lots of White Flowers
And friends and guests to the Barn

Can you see one of her gifts?
One of the sweet little chicks
to add to her growing fam in Wine Country
(it's wonderful living here!)

Here's a little close-up (isn't he cute?)
Cathleen, You did a beautiful job
of making everything dreamy.

I want to let everyone know, that Cathleen's friend,
Irma was there too and had very
lovely items that were gone in seconds as well.


Next, I want to thank Christine Annette
for this beautiful site award
Thank you, Christine
You have made my week even more special!
(please go see Christine by clicking the link above)

The very last thing (finally) I want to say
is thank you for all the kind emails about my shop
and for filling your shopping carts
the last couple of weeks.
I'm working hard here at
My Petite Maison to get your parcels
shipped to your beautiful homes.

I am overwhelmed (in a great way!)
Re-stocking is happening as I'm able - I promise.

Oh and my Jeanne d'Arc magazine arrived
Yippee Doo Dah Day
Merci, Roberta... I'm so happy!
More in stock at Roberta's here
and at Carole's blog here too

Have a wonderful weekend...
Yes, I'll be Flea Marketing again
(someone's got to do it)

Now I'd better get back to work!

Au revoir for now~

Hi Tracie,
Thank you so much for taking me with you to this great barn sale. I would have been so disappointed if I hadn't gone along. So many pretty things. I'm glad it was a great turn out. I love that little chick. That's something I've been wanting, but hubs is being a pain about it. Your heart from Fifi is so awesome.

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Oh are you ever funny, enter in but don't get in my way. lol That kind of reminds me of me. I have the tendency to get excited. It looks like I could of very well found something at that barn sale. There is one near me that is absolutely wonderful too, which I had purchased many architectural pieces. I do like those hearts you have gotten from Fifi, they look great.

Looking forward seeing the mirror.

Enjoy Your Day-

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Hi Tracy! I am so happy you came by. Even if you have just two crowns, no matter! You can stroll on through and visit and see all the pretty art for just the fun, or you can display your crowns! Anyhow, it is always nice to hear from you. Blessings, Anita

Petit Coterie said...

Hi Tracie
Your beautiful photos made me feel as if I was flea marketing right beside you! Thanks for the tour.

Yes please if Zeke could give Guss a bit of a pep talk that would be great!

Yes the website woes, you must be with Pappa Shop too - how can these hackers be bothered - I don't get it? Anyway sounds like everything is fixed and back to normal.

That is a fun barn, everything looks so great. I am glad you had such a nice time there.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Bonour Tracie! Thanks for coming by again, what a trooper! I LOVE GERARD DEPARDIEU! Are you kidding? I have seen him in Jean de Florette literally hundreds of times. This is how I learned to speak French! Rewinding and relistening to the Marcel Pagnol movies, every one of them! I have read all of the Manon novels in French over again aussi! French has a way to captivate you and leave you a changed person, n'est-ce pas? So much art and beauty to be had. I am so glad you like my crowns Tracie; it is so much fun collecting them. I will post another time how I have transformed one of those figurines into an altered Marie. May you have a pleasant summer day sweet lady! Anita
