Junk "Finds" from Timi's wonderful event last night and a moment of silence,,,,for "Huey"

Okay, so last night??  I posted about Timi's wonderful "Collection's" Event in Bothell.

 It was very fun! But very crowded  (but I'm sure that was a good Event  for my dear Timi and her Vendors.) So, my pics weren't very good,,and my dear friend Kelly was ready to wrap it up and head home to her hubby (She's an ER nurse, and has been working extra shifts and was ready to go home after about  90 minutes of hunting/shopping  and have dinner with- "
"the Hubbs", aka, Michael.)
 So,,,,,,,I said ,"give me a couple" and I ran around snapping photos like a mad woman for a  very few minutes  (see yesterdays post) and I MISSED so much and so many! Not Kell Bell's fault, as there were just so many bodies in front of booths,,you couldn't take photos!,,,,,,but I think that was a GOOD thing for Timi and her Vendors!!

Ackk! But here are pics of what I found,,,,,and a few links below  you should check out if you haven't. These women are wonderful,,,great creations and "finds" abounded,,,,,,,and I wish I could tell you about ALL the vendors, for it truly was a lovely event! ,,,But here's what I found.......

Check out my lovely "Star Wand" from Melaine,,,,"Me-laine",,,,,NOT Melanie......... please make note! Of "My Sweet Savannah,",,,,,,,her blog and her creations, interior design and photos, her insight and her spirirt- okay and I LOVE her music choices,,but I am a Country Girl! They are all  SO beautiful! If you have never been to her blog, You aren't really living!!! Truly! Go to:
I found some great vintage velveteen ribbon in one of the booths, as well as some vintage cupcake picks of various birds!
The wonderful Vintage "Poodle paper" that Mary gave me or "stuffed in my bag" from Annies on first.
Please check out their blog,,,,,the store is wonderful and I love all these women!!! (Thanks Mary, see my blog post yesterday for "Mary's Shop"

And then there were, "Huey and Louie",,,,from my childhoood cartoons,, or maybe yours, too? You might remember, Huey was the big lovable one with NO brain,,and "Louie" kept him in line, Well, my Black Lab "Shadow" saw Huey, apparently and it was love/lust/or threat at first site,,,,,that said, "Huey has gone to the great beyond," the great "duckpond in the sky" for while I was posting about the event last night...........Moment of silence  please, for "Heuy." I'm not sure of the Vendor that had these darlings,,,,I'd love to (God forbid, not replace, "Huey" but give "Louie a companion!

Sidebar: Thanks for the update, here is the blog link for the cute little duckies as of 3/9/10
Her booth was darling and I may add to my duckie collection!
Thanks for sharing the info!

Before the "Union," But this didn't turn out pretty..............

Destruction and Mayhem,,,,,,,,,,"thanks Shadow",  my love, for saving me from the "apparently" EVIL duck in our midst. "Dewey" is now safely ensconsed on the mantel! (Bow your head and give a moment of remembrence for Huey,,for "he was brave and strong",,,,,although NOT all  that smart!) Shadow saw fit to "send" him to a "better place" apparently.

  1. Aw Shell, you are so sweet! I'll give Bob the shout-out!

    I did post some pix on the Retreat blog but not as many as I would have liked to. Like you, many of mine were blurry and filled with so many people that you couldn't see the treasures! Tiffany at ShabbyScraps posted some of her photos of the event on the Come Junk With Us Facebook Page, too!
