Look who came to our open house!!!

She is a doll....I learned some good stuff from her.
Check out her awesome blog.
Anywhere from modeling like a pro to great crafty things!

And this is Tausha from Simple Me!
She is beautiful, adorable and just plain nice...I felt like we had know each other for a long time.
She is the next Rachel Ashwell!
Check out her beautiful's stunning!

My long time buddy Jennifer.
We have something very special.
Love her! Jennifer has a blog too.  My Daily Swoon.
Kathy and Lori.  
Kathy is my partner in crime business.  We have been friends since our 18/19 year old daughters started kindergarten.  We have always been very good friends but since we started Chic and Shabby(she's chic I'm not) we have become sooooo close.  A BFF for sure. We get along all the time! REALLY!
Lori is my BFF4ever! Isn't she beautiful!! Tall thin blond and big boobs....don't hate her....(she doesn't know this and don't tell her because she will get a big head) She doesn't read my blog...I thought the law was friends read friends blogs?
She has a life I guess.

Kathy Carol Denise and me.
I met Denise because she saw our post on Craig's list for the shop.
And now I see her all time.  She's becoming a good friend fast.

Carol was trying to teach us the way to pose so there is no double chin.
I think it works!

Long time friend Lynn and Kathy.
I worked with Lynn for 20 years at US Airways.  It's funny how you bond with people and it stays.

Karen and Renee
The one that runs the show and the owner!
Who's the boss?

2 of my sweets girls.
Katie and Emily.
Aren't they beautiful!!!!
I have another one that moved away to Jacksonville.
Wish she could have come too.

My sister Shari.  This is a picture from last open house, I forgot to take one of us.
Do we look alike?
I don't think so but some people do....
I do see the same cheeks.
Lynn Denise Kathy Peggy and Christie.
Peggy and Christie are vendors at Art Angels.
Peggy has 2 booths and has great stuff. Very nice lady, I like her.  She does well at Art Angels.
Kathy met Christie at her garage sale and learned Christie was opening booth at Art Angels! Believe it or not Orlando is a small town. If you are from here you know that.
She has lots of great old linens and the was she displays them is gorgeous!
I will show you later(forgot to take pictue). 

Food was all over the place.
This is mine and Kathy's set up.  She did it, isn't it beautiful?
I make this awesome black eyed pea dippy thing.
Super easy,
3 cans of black eyed peas drained
chop-1 english cuke
3-4 tomatoes
1 jalapeno
hand full celantro
toss all this together
mix 1/4 cup olive oil with juice of 2 limes
pour it on
It's great for a New Years dinner.  You know, for luck...
mix well and your done!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Linking with White Wednesday
