Friends of a Feather Fall Event ~ Gone...but not Forgotten

The Friends of a Feather Fall Event was an amazing success in spite of the unusally cold weather ~ the weathermen said it was the 2nd coldest October 10th in recorded history! Crazy... But, regardless, we had an incredible turn out ~ we served hot chocolate and coffee and yummy chili that my husband Brian made. We also had a firepit going ~ so anyone could warm themselves whether consuming the warm goodies or standing by the fire (I think some were warmed by the excitement of a special find that they couldn't live without!) The sun did actually come out for a while...as you can see by some of the photos.

My daughter Jennifer, who is a 1st grade school teacher, makes cupcakes for our event...she gives her profits to the United Way. She made some tasty apple strudel cupcakes ~ they were so good ~ especially with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee!Lots and lots of wonderful goodies to choose from...from handmade creations made by our amazing group of creative "Friends" ... these trays are made by Kathi of TrayBella...Marilyn...my mom... had made some beautiful journals and wall hangings to give as gifts, or to keep for yourself!

These three girls were so happy to be getting Angie's a.k.a. Junie C's handmade head bands....a huge selection of repurposed furniture, flea market finds and wonderful things for your home and creative space were on hand to choose from...

Craig and Sheila from Odd Folies brought some very unique pieces that are perfect for any office or creative space in your home.

Robin Macintosh had some lovely Christmas pins, and ornaments...I can't believe that Christmas is right around the corner ~ and as cold as it was, you'd think it was next week!

I personally fell in love with the pink chair that you see in the photo above...it is now a part of my Vintage Arts Studio... I sometimes can't resist... :)

These are three "little sisters" that helped at the event. From left to right...Jennifer ~ my oldest daughter's "little sister" ... Cara ~ my "little sister" and Carol ~ Mom's "little sister." I want to extend a special thanks to these three amazing women...we couldn't have done it without you!
