*T* is for *Thankful* and my new fav color ...*Teal*

I have sooooo much to be Thankful for....this past weekend was full of love and fun! First off, on Sunday we were at the faire and my booth was a Fairy Garden....Party!...This was my very first outdoor show ever!

I have to tell you that Martha did an outstanding job of putting this event on...Her booth was fabulous and very busy!!!I had the honor of being right next to her and her awesome "Elf" turns out that Patty and I had met a few years before when I did the Greens Show in Salem! Patty is a dear,dear authentic and a kind soul! Some of my faeries have the privilege to live with her!

I got to meet so many new friends...Laurie, Molly Mo's, Sammy Girl, Adrienne and more whose names have slipped my mind! Also spoke with some of my collectors that I have not seen in even told me that she submitted my name to Mary Englibrite (before her magazine folded.).how sweet was that!

This wee faerie , whom I named "Soliel" (after Cique de Soliel) greeted all that entered the party...she wants to join the circus!
This is what my booth looked sure was nice that we could do a partial set up on Saturday as we had plans to go........

HERE!!!.........This is the Chinook Winds Casino in Lincoln City, Oregon...they had an antique car show going on!

I just had to take a picture of this car...for the color!..TEAL!!! Love it!!! The car is pretty awesome, is the Motorcycle man peeking in the window! (wink, wink!)

And this car was just to appropriate for what we got to see and experience next!!!

The Beach Boys!!!! I boogied in my seat and clapped til my hands ached!

But, before all the fun,fun, fun ("Til my daddy took my beach board away!."..sorry, couldn't help myself..."Help me,help me Rhonda!"...dang...their music is still in my head!!!!) now where was I? Oh yeah....before all the excitement of the Beach Boys, we sat on the deck of our hotel room, sipped some wine and looked at this awesome view...and watched a whale swim around and around...

Yuppers.......Life is good..........I have alot to be Thankful for!

Heart Hugs,
