A Fabulous Show ..A happy Birthday ..and On to Glitterfest

A Great Big Thank You to Christie and Rita for being such Great Hostesses at the Chateau De Fleurs Marketplace once again ........
It was our third Show and once again ..they pulled it off Beautifully !!!
Along with Help from Rita's Husband Dean and two sons Alan and Rafaelle ..And an Awesome Lunch ..
Not to mention Christie's Daughter Cherise and her son AJ for all the help they gave too !!!

We enjoyed ourselves immensly ..we had such a great time catching up with all our marketplace friends ..meeting new friends and making new memories that we're sure not to forget. The Marketplace has such great artisans and vendors that are more than just people who come to sell ..but we've all become a small family and it just feels wonderful to know your working in such a Great environment around great people.

I'm alread looking forward to Dec. 2nd and 3rd for the Christmas show ..I'm a huge fan of "Christ"mas ...and love to decorate ..so I can't wait to see what everyone will be bringing and of course can't wait to start getting things made ....

On another Note ....Guess who's Birthday it is today ????

Nope not mine ...it's Abbs ...and we took her out for a fun day today ..or at least what we consider fun ...LOL !!!

Happy Birthday Mom ....I love you Bunches and enjoy that God blessed me with my best friend ever ...."My Mom" !!!


Well today was our last day of play ....tomorrow we have to get really serious and down to work....why you ask ...well ...only about 10 short days away is ...


We're working on all kinds of fun goodies that we can't wait to share with all those Glitterfest Junkies ...

If you haven't marked your calender ....Not this Saturday but the following Oct. 2nd ...from 10-4 ...in Santa Ana , CA ...mark it down ...and call your friends ...for a great time ...Unique one of a kind Artisans as well as antique and vintage finds ..will be offered for 1 day only ...

Abbey and I ...along with Lisa Loria of Vintage Bling ..Lori and Jamie Martin of Two Wild Roses ..and many others will be selling indoors ..while Christie Repasy of Chateau de Fleurs and Rita Reade of Mammabellarte ..will be taking 2 of the larger 10 x 10 spaces out of doors bringing their larger pieces of Home and Garden Decor ..so be sure this time to bring the right vehicle for some larger purchase being offered by them for the first time.

Well it's been a beautiful day ..the weather has just been perfect ..mildly warm days ..and cool evenings ...the only thing better would be a bed near the ocean and a cool ocean breeze for me.

Life is good ...we are so Blessed ..Finding Joy and Happiness in the simple things of life.

The Autumn is just beginning ...and I must admit i'm ready for winter already ..ready for cool nippy days ..for drizzle and rain ...for thick fog ...and light winds. I'm ready to bundle up in a blanket in front of the fireplace ..to sip some hot cocoa ..and to see the snow tipped mountains that surround us....I know that's still a ways off ..but my heart and head are already longing for it ...which isn't so bad ...it put's me in mind of Christmas and that's a good thing being that I need to get working on making Christmas Goods for our upcoming shows...and Our new Shop space ..

Yes Abbey and I have recently decided to beging offering our wares daily and not just at shows ....And we decided on offering them at one of our favorite shopping places ...

TREASURES N JUNK Antique Mall ...
in Ontario, CA

We will beging setting up shop ..the beginning to middle of October...I'll be sure to keep you posted on when we're all ready for shoppers and post picts to share our journey getting set up.

We're looking forward to offering our antiques, vintage and handmade wares daily ..giving us a bigger range to work in and allowing us to do more ..to branch out.

Blessings ...Sara and Abbey ....The Sweet Magnolias


  1. Oh I wished I lived closer, I'm missing out on all the fun! Sounds like some great shows. It's been so hot here in Texas, that I'm ready for Winter too!!! Hope you take lots of pictures of you new booth!!! Blessings~~~Daphne

  2. Oh, it's so good to hear that you love "Christ"mas too. I was so disappointed with last years Glitterfest because it seemed more like a Halloweenfest and I'm not really into that. Diane did tell me that this year it was going to be more "Holidays" oriented, so with that, and by reading your post, I think I'll come visit and bring some friends. I'd like to stop by and meet you ladies, it would be a highlight in my day of FUN!

    Thanks for the info and many blessings on your new shop and other ventures.

    Hugs, Irma

  3. First!....I wish you could hear me singing " Happy Birthday, Abbey".
    Second....we could not do the show without you, you ladies and Papa' Fred are incredible and such great friends. I am looking forward to see what you will bring to Glitterfest. Have a great day creating. Ciao Rita mammabellarte

    It was great seeing you three again at the Chateau, enjoy GLITTERFEST I know you will do well.
