Coffee Planning Session



If you have been following along the last few months...
you might remember that I was planning to team up with
The Brocantess and hold a local sale...

...sort of a French Brocante Meets
American Fleamarket type affair...



...well life got in the way...

...The Brocantess went to France...
...met a handsome French man and stayed longer than expected...

...and then my Mom became ill...



Yesterday...

...we finally met for coffee and...

...after a few hours of coffee, scones, a wee bit of thrifting and a lot of conversation...

...we are making plans again...

...stay tuned!

There is still lots of time to enter the 52 FLEA 500th Post Give Back.....

I will pick a winner on August 1st!

Hope you are having a good weekend!
Flea market tomorrow!!!

Praying your mom is doing better!

Please remember those of us who live too far away from you gals and can't travel to your upcoming sales. How about saving some of the smaller or less heavy brocante items for online sales?

Dear Laura
Well I am still thinking of you and your mum.. and saying a little prayer for you.. Now the Broncantess.. meeting someone overseas.. woo hoo.. lucky girl.. maybe I should travel again.. haha

I love these little dresses.. you know I had a grown up version of the black and white myself... was a Lisa Ho.. back in my skinny still show the legs off days... I gave most of them away and always regret not keeping this b&w number...

Ok.. take care and have fun.. xxx Julie

Dear Laura,
How lovely to meet up with a fellow blogger. You must have had loads to chat about and it sounds as if you have made some future plans together.
I hope that your mum is improving and I wish her well.

Still keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers. Our mommas are the sun and the moon.

Life has a way of doing that to us. But then I think things happen when they are suppose to. I love the little doll dresses!

Dear Laura,
I just found your beautiful blog from a fellow Silver Bella follower. How lovely to have a friend to help you follow your dreams!
Prayers sent your way for your mama and hoping you give her lots of hugs and attention. My mother becomes more and more special to me as the years go by and especially since I am also a mother:)
Hope to give you a hug at Silver Bella!
