Make New Friends but Keep the Old.... One is a Silver Bella and the other Gold

I returned home from a fanastic weekend in Omaha. The Friday night Silver Bella Bouquet was a HUGH SUCCESS!!! I am so honored and grateful for the overwhelming response I had to all of my work. I received the warmest welcome from Teresa McFayden, and all the Silver Bella teachers. This was quite a memorable experience!!!

Here are a few photos from the evening.

To the left is a picture of some of the other Silver Bella Boutique Vendors. At the top is Sara from MantoFev, then Pam Garrison, Jill Assman, Amanda Willey, and Cari Kraft. Each of them brought delightful goodies to sell. I really enjoyed meeting them, as well as shopping for wonderful treasures to take home with me.

Below is a picture of the center of my Boutique table. All of my original hand-made holiday ornaments and garlands are shown draped across a vintage quilt.

Pam is browsing through my vintage ledger papers and French letters.

Kelly, who is on the left, is picking out her favorite ornaments and garlands. She was also a vendor at the Bella Boutique, and was selling the most beautiful vintage jewelry.

And, for anyone interested in purchasing one of my holiday treasures. I will be loading the very few remaining ornaments and garlands to The Red Door Studio On-Line Shop. Each piece is handmade using one of a kind vintage elements.

I am also taking special orders on the ornament pictured below. All of my glittery stars sold very quickly on Friday night, and I have had several requests to purchase additional pieces.

So, I will accept orders up to December 5th for this treasure. Each ornament will come with its own unique holiday saying, and packaged in a gift box ready for you to wrap and tuck under the tree for someone special or maybe as a present for yourself.

If you are interested in purchasing one, please contact me at TheRedDoorStudio@yahoo.com. I will email you with a price that includes shipping, and other payment information.

hi tracie!
i loved seeing all your photos and hearing about the Silver Bella - it sounds like it was a lot of fun as well as a successful venue for you.

i appreciate the encouragement about drawing being a learned skill that you have to practice, at least it's a fun thing to practice if not a bit frustrating sometimes :-)

Oh, this sounds like it was so much fun! Wish I could have seen it in person, but the photos were great! Glad it was a great success for you!

I have a two day show this weekend and I've been up to my eyeballs in jewelry...ready for a break next week!

Your display is just lovely, Tracie! I'm not surprised, though. Your efforts always are! Oh, how I wish I could have been shopping there, live! Hugs, Shari
