A Dreamy Evening

Last night was the Once Upon A Dream, A Prairie Fairy Tale Event, opening night.  It was a dreamy evening for the attendees.


I was a vendor at the event.  A lot of you wanted me to let you know how I did.  This was the first time I ever did a vendor night.  I have never done art shows or craft fairs either.  I usually just sell my mosaics on my website.  So this was a fun challenge for me. 

I didn't sell everything, but I sold some...the rest of the pieces will be added to my website over the weekend for sale.


Here are some pictures from the evening.

Some of the gals outfits were amazing!

After all of the hard work, I am taking the rest of the weekend off to enjoy the fall colors.  See you all on Monday!

It does look as if it was a magical evening... You look so pretty, Penny, and your table looks great. Glad that you sold some things and now have some to add to your shop. You've worked very hard and now you deserve your rest enjoying the beautiful autumn in your own backyard.

You did a wonderful job Penny. Your table is beautiful and so are you. Now . . . Rest. We will talk next week sometime.

Everything looks so pretty. It must have taken quite a bit or organization to pull that off. What a beautiful setting too.

Put your feet up - you've earned a break.

Oh, Penny, you got some wonderful photos of the event. I do not think I took a single photo that night, except for your pretty blue birds! I was so tired of setting up and traveling.

It was such a pleasure to meet you and see your work. Continued success to you and keep in touch.

Ciao bella,
Suzanne
