Monticello Christmas Show

Every year I think that the guest dealers that put on these special shows at Monticello cannot possibly surpass themselves... Every time I am proven wrong... It just keeps getting better and better! The Christmas show this year has to be the best I have ever seen, especially considering the incredible caliber of the vendors: Barn House, Sparrow, Queen of Tarte, Duchess, Madison Park, Bella Shabby, All My Favorite Things, Jeff & Julie's Primitives, Annie, Fannie & Abigail, Kindred Roses, My Shabby Roses, Vintage Trifles, Molly Mo's, Manor Bourne, Auntie Joy and Where Sisters Gather. What makes it even more special is the fact that I have a new friend staying with me who came all the way from Louisiana to see this show: Adrienne, from The Flying Bee!! She and I have been having fun frolicking around Portland, and she had the chance to meet many of the Monticello dealers yesterday, during the preview party!! I leave you with some eye candy, I am sure you will be as inspired as I was!!

... Joe is busy setting up their incredible space (which included some wonderful pieces from Natalie)...

... Cindy's maaaaaarvelous vignettes...

Jermonne and Cindy (love her hat...!!)

... Colby Cottage has all the pink details I love...!

Sue's incredible pieces (somehow I forgot to take an overall picture), how cute is this apron?!

... A little corner in Duchess's space...

... Annie, Fannie and Abigail is an absolute dreamland!

... Molly Mo's and Vintage Trifles is sweet and enchanting...

... Joy's crystal-filled lamp with a pink crinoline would fit perfectly in my home!!!

... Debbie's french-inspired space was a true delight for the senses!!!

... Julie and Chandra's sweet space...

... Laurie and Debbie from Worthy Goods have created magic in their little mall space to match the mood in the event...

...Vicky made a change from her usual bohemian chic style to create a white Christmas...

... My newest friend, Adrienne!!! I am so glad she took me up on my offer to host her!!!! We are having too much fun!!
