Belle Blanc Barnhouse Debut (& two unexpected surprises)

What an amazing day…

Leah the Fabulous unveils Belle Blanc in all its glory at BH Flea Market~

Robin , Leah, Julia & Michelle worked hard to get that booth ready for the Flea Market–it is gorgeous!

Robin and I didn’t get to do our usual “mirror picture”, but I’ll settle for us all in Leah’s clothes feelin’ good…

I was fortunate to have two of my favorite girls stay with me before the BH sale…Robin calls us Paris Peach (Kim), Diva MPG (yours truly) and Cupcake (Tiffany)…I don’t get to see them enough and it shows—we cram about two weeks worth of conversation into a few hours.

Michelle, my future partner-in-crime for the Gypsy Junk Prom, has been an amazing help to L the Fab—she is a SuperStar.

Our sweet boy…where was the other boy?! Hiding, I think. Jermonne had no shortage of love goin’ around on Saturday.

Kim was saying that this image brought tears to her eyes because she cares for this guy so much—easy to do.

This was my fave shot of the day…

Okay…surprise #1…………………………

Kim is working the door at BH and comes careening over with a human person in tow…she plunks this lovely in front of me and who is it?!







My indy heroine.

Remember this?

and this?

and even this?

Such wonderful inspiration derived from reading and journaling in Kelly’s book, “Taking Flight” and taking in  her heart-felt words on her blog. She is one-in-a-million to me and it was such a special treat to meet her (and that cute bump she has goin’ on…just a few more weeks left!)

Oh, my…do I even look star-struck from the back? teehee…

…it was a strange emotional thing that came over me when I saw her (a bit embarrassing, actually), but I think it came from deep, deep down place where all of these wonderful creative stirrings have been brewing for so long…In a word,





Surprise #2….I got to sing a little.

Random, huh? For lovelies just joining us, this is my past life…my past love…my past dream of sorts. It’s what I did in college and while after and now…. not so much. BUT…this sweet boy who kind of became a strolling musician for awhile wandered over. I asked him what he knew and BOOM! We were jamming. It was a blast…felt so, so good to belt it out :) I think Tweetie Bird has the footage…maybe she’ll copy us in.

So…there was a lot of this….

…and a lot of this…


(Cindy, Kim and Heather B.) hanging out at the after-party…

But mostly it was just feeling the blessings that this group of people have brought into my life.

I am so very grateful.

Have a wonderful week, sweet Lovelies~

    Thanks so much for sharing. I SO hope I’ll be at the next one and meet some of you that I am just getting to know.

    I MUST have some of the Belle Blanc pieces – they are beautiful and exactly what I love to wear! At first glance it doesn’t look like they’re available on the website..any suggestions? Thanks again.
