Timi's home was a sweet sight, as we were tired and excited to see our friend! That evening, a few of Timi's friends came over and we were over the moon about how nice everyone was!! We had a blast with a junk exchange, but had to swear in blood that we wouldn't reveal our junk prizes, as some of us "allegedly" may have brought along some gifts from friends that we never had the heart to admit we didn't like.... Naughty, I know!
Timi was the best hostess ever!!! She even treated us to homemade scones and hot crab sandwiches (sorry, we
ate devoured them too fast to even get a picture...)!
You know it is always a good sign when your hostess's dog eats out of crystal bowls on a silver platter....
Saturday morning and early afternoon was spent doing one of our favorite things : junking!!! I have never seen so many garage sales in one little town!!! We even came across a huge pile of free stuff!! This is what the truck looked like by the time we got home...
Then it was time to head down to downtown Snohomish for the blog party!! A few lovely shops were going to be open late and we were excited to meet other bloggers (we all had our blog badges - I was wearing a makeshift badge I made 5 minutes before leaving the house, as I had forgotten mine...).
The first stop was Annie's on First, a lovely shop owned by Annie and Mary (I soooo forgot to take a picture of them!!).
Lisa and I ready for a fun night!!!!
Here is Laura on the left, Kim on the right, and Melaine, from My Sweet Savannah, which I was absolutely thrilled to meet in person!!
Shortly after, we headed to a fabulous shop called Faded Elegance. The owner, Kimberly, was spoiling us with champagne!!
I am so sorry, but my mind went to a naughty place when I saw this... Too funny!
Her upholstered pieces were to die for...!!!
Then it was time to stop by Joyworks , a wonderful shop owned by Jana and her mother Claris. What a truly delightful duo...!!! This is where I found one of my favorite purchases, a set of three vintage pink barkcloth panels headed to my master bathroom!!
I fell in love with this bamboo rug... Isn't it gorgeous?!!
We also visited a couple more stores, such as Inside Out and Curly Willow. In all my excitement, I forgot to take pictures of some fellow bloggers we were happy to see again, such as Debi (Ormolulu), or that we met for the first time, like Amber (Tres Birds) and Trisha (La.Te.Da Love). Timi's friend Dani was also a delight, but I don't think she has a blog... It was truly a memorable event!!!
Everything in the next picture came from the free pile...
... as did this blue chair!
This child's hutch is just darling!
This is my favorite purchase of the weekend, a set of three vintage barkcloth panels in excellent condition in my favorite color... Can't wait to hang them in my bathroom!!
