artists, friends, and a little white house

After an event such as the Paris reception we had the highest hopes for the following day and they were met and surpassed with exceeding standards. Kim outdid her self again with her La Petit Maison. From the minute we entered the building, we were transported to another time and place where we left the business of the world at the door, only the softness of creams and whites surrounded us and we had no place to be except with good friends. It was just what I needed.

checking in, getting our table number and giddy to see what lies ahead

Up the stairs we went, finding hints of what was to come

When we walked in to our main crafting room, this is what we found

my seat

ceiling adornments

Kristen Robinson's vintage chandelier

the room was abuzz with excitement and everyone was impressed with the fantastic decor.

I love this shot, i think Kim got it... look at all the cameras out and where am i headed you ask? shopping, of course...

We made garland with Pam Garrison, creative house canvases with Amy Hanna, and Milagros with Teresa McFayden. I was a happy girl for sure!
