Finally My Chateau de Fleurs Post!

I'm finally posting about Chateau de Fleurs!

It was a great time with really great people
from the hosts, to the vendors
and to all the wonderful customers we met.
Christie and Rita are wonderful hosts!

Remember that our truck had to be repaired
during the week of the show?
Well, that got us a little behind so we weren't able
to make a second trip with our stuff...bummer.
that meant we had to bring it Friday morning,
the first day of the show. 
Yeah, not fun.
Since everyone else was set up we
couldn't back our truck up to unload,
unless we backed over everyone else's stuff
and I don't think they'd appreciate that very much.

But in the end, after a LOT of trips down the long driveway,
we got it all in.

My friend, Arlene, from Garden Gate Boutique,
shared a space with me.

Here's our spot the first day.

Just to make it harder on ourselves,
on Saturday we decided to change it all around.
Everyone thought we were crazy to do all that work again!

We always do that, we get an idea that something would
look better somewhere else then the next thing
you know we're rearranging everything!

So, here it is the second day.
I realize it looks a little crowded
but the close up pictures look a lot better.

This is the black and white arrangement
we moved up front.
I really like how my floor screen turned out
with the vintage sheet music.
It's too hard to see in this picture but
the top of the vanity has sheet music as well.

This was the middle of the space,
there was a lot more room to walk around
after we rearranged everything.

I love my hot pink chandelier
with Arlene's hot pink lace panel.

This is Arlene's vanity display.
It turned out really cute!

This is a silverware tray I loaded up
with appliques.
It was so tideous but I love the way
it turned out!
Here's the black and white display in the back.
Those are my sheet music doors I did
I use them as a wall in my space at the Galleria.
I was asked several times if they were
for sale but I just can't part with them for now!
Tons of people were interested in this old,
crusty, rusty vintage medicine cabinet but
this little beauty was picked by Christie.
You just might see it all fancied up

I have a few more photos I'm going to share
in another post but in the meantime,
I hope you enjoyed these!

Have a super blessed day all you blogging chickies!
