We are so grateful!

Sigh!  We did it again! We'd like to again extend our gratitude to all of you who supported us with your presence and of course your purchases.  It is a joy to see people walking out "hugging" a new treasured find.  I don't know if it's good business sense, but I love to make a sale where the buyer looks gleeful about something she found.  It could be something to add beauty of a home, an addition to a collection, or something that will make the perfect gift for a loved one.

We also want to send a LOUD shout out and a tip of the hat to all the wonderful folks whose postings supported our event: Trish from Trouvais, Maria from Dreamy Whites, Christina from Griege, Andie from Divine Theater,  Terry from La Dolfina, and This Bliss Life If you are not familiar with these ladies blogs, pay them a visit.  We feel honored to be included in their postings.

A special "thank you" to our friend Cathy for the great photos for this posting.

Finally, we'd like to thank many of you who sent us good will,  and words of encouragement via emails and postings on our blog.  Merci! Gracias!  Grazie! Dank u! Obrigado! Thank you!

I cannot wait till June! One, I will be taking time off from my work as an educator to focus on Atelier and two, we will be flying to Europe for another fantastic "hunting" trip. It is such excitement when we go to the fairs and I promise to blog about it this time.
One of these days we will get our act together and take a group of you along!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. As for its name, it does mean "Of Everything and Nothing", which, in essence, means a little bit of this and that. I didn't want my blog to be limited to one thing, I have so many interests (of course, home decor being one of them!)

Vintage Home said...

Oh so much wonderful beauty!

Ido said...

I'm so glad that I found your blog, I absolutely love everything I'm seeing, next time I'm in California will be looking for you guys!

Hi there~ Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello!! I am jumping up and down with my arm stretched up in the air shouting 'Take me with you on your buying trip!!! Me..me..me..me...me!!!
I'll carry your goods... won't eat much or take up much space..." lol! :)
The comment you left about feeling fainting while buying in France... I feel like I am going to faint just IMAGINING it!! :) I am looking forward to your next sale- I'll try to get down that way for it. Looks like you might know a sweet friend of mine- Sandy @ Tattered House. Maybe we can come shop your sale together sometime.
Glad to be a new follower over here- so much inspiration! :)

Bettsi said...

Wow! What beautiful treasures! I need to get on your email list. I live in Sacramento and this definitely looks like something I'd drive for.
