Today was set up day at the Remnants of the Past show in Nipomo, California... can you SEE the sunset reflected in the mirror above?
And let's talk about the orchards of LEMON trees, perfectly placed to add the perfect natural accent to our displays. And the fragrance of those blossoms.... oh, lawdy, I SWOON!
No, that unripe lemon is not a prop. That's where the branch ended up popping forward out of the tree behind the cash wrap. Incredible. I could not have planned it better myself!

This place is astounding... everywhere you turn, it's a photo op. And that's just the farm, barn, gardens and historic home. Add 50 of the best vendors we've ever SEEN and it's just eye candy everywhere. There was a fabulous dinner party this evening in the gardens. Photos of that next week!

It's been a long, busy day working in hot sun (YAY!) getting everything in our orchard-side booth just so. There are some very and I DO mean VERY special guests attending this show. {I can't tell you who they are because then I'd have to kill you. ;0) } OK, you know about the fabulous Sue Whitney of JunkMarket - SHE'S a VIP. And an absolute doll - we met her tonight at dinner. A couple of magazines. And... I heard to day that her highness will be in attendance. She's on a West Coast tour right now. She's very .... chic. Yes. That's all I can say. ;0)

And to top it ALL off, tonight at 8:30 PM, we watched our only son get married on a beach in Maui! Yes, via the wonders of the Internet, family participated via web cam as they said their vows and became husband and wife. We welcome our 'fourth daughter' with open arms and full hearts!

Yep, it's been a busy day... and things aren't about to slow down any time soon!!! We hope we get to see you at the show tomorrow!
