on the go and on the road

What can I say about  the Domestic Bliss soirée Friday and Saturday. It was pure magic  . So many people came by that I just wanted  to spend more time with . I want you  all a part of my life . I hope Dan and Kristen will do it again next year. I will have my sister come just for this show. She will go crazy. I  have to say I looked with blinders when it came to shopping  as I was tempted  by everything everyone was selling . I know Cal's and my financial situation will pass and  we are so rich in so many other ways. It does  hurts though to not be able at this time to  buy and   support other artist . I know I will be able to again, just not right now when Cal is out of  work in one week. So to all who  showed your wares, it was wonderful stuff please keep being creative and putting it out  for us to enjoy. Then  my darling "Aunt Deb" ( she is only 4  1/2 years older then me  ) helped me with my booth the last 3 hours  in the heat no less!!! She did this so  I could catch up on other things at our AZ home and  get ready to go to our SF  "home"( which I fear  will never sell UGHHH) It will be  the first time in 8 weeks and Cal and I have not  seen each other in  that same  amount  of time.  A big THANKS to Deb. She means so much to me and  is always so ready to help in any way shape or form. She  supports and lifts me up  in so many ways !!  Visit her at Momama loves vintage. How do I every repay such a giving spirit? Then on to last   night.  I took the best break and hung  at  Maija's  home with women I hope  to see more of   as they were all so very  "real".   All so ready to share their  passions , joys and love . Don't you just  love the creative spirit.  And I word about Maija , she is the most gifted person I know. She has the rarest gift of   qualities.  Her spirit  combines  true honestly , a generous spirit ,creativity, realness , love of people, animals , art, beauty, the world , and her family and she is so humble  I could go on and on, oh did I say  funny as hell too !!   Her home is full of all of the above . Whoa-then I was up early this a.m. and  flew home. I  spent the remainder of the day with my Sweetie.  We went to the amazing home he is finished with in one week.  He has worked on it for 2 years . He is the most talented builder. Such attention to detail. I also spent time in my garden and  we ordered pizza  with green chiles and watched the Tudors ( I am so into all of that )OHHH  That horrible womanizer -King Henry the 8th . He  is on to Marriage #4, Anna of Cleaves . We shared a bottle of champagne too . My sweetie did a great job caring for the house when I was gone .. Ummmm minus a few plants.  I go crazy when  I see that some have died I LOVE  Garden he  just forgot to water them ,oh well . So   sorry for the long post my heart is so full tonight . I send love to all who's paths I crossed this weekend. PLEASE if you stop by, leave a comment as I want so much to stay in touch. You are all beautiful and amazing!  een more so if you take the time to read this long post .  I had some great photos and then screwed up importing them and deleted many I did not mean too ..Boo Hoo.Then at Maija's I  got everyones email on a piece of paper and misplaced it, I blame it all on menopause. Hugs Julie P.S I will be stopping by blogs to say Hi in the A.M.

Wow, sounds like it was a busy and overflowing weekend!
Thanks for visiting, I just saw your comment. Now that I am back online, I can get caught up with linking and so on.
I don't know whether the iris will mix - you would have to leave the stalks of the blooms to ripen with seed and I have no idea how long a seedling would take until it finally blooms. But I have a hard enough time keeping the ones I have. Wet winters and too many slugs.

sounds like you had a fun filled weekend!
I am in the same situation as far as i'm doing a fair next weekend, but for the first time I won't be able to buy of other stalls because hubby's job has been cut to a 4 day week for the last 3 months :( I know it will be a challenge not to buy anything, but I must resist ;)

Sounds like you had a WONDERFUL time! I love days that are just so full of everything good! As to the award, I think you could just copy and paste it into your website. I control clicked on the image, saved it onto my desktop and then just uploaded it like a photo. It's pretty easy. I'm glad you had such a great weekend!! Hugs, Silke
