The Belle Of The Ball

If you are lucky enough to know Theresa Cano of the infamous Garden Antqs Vintage then you know why I call her the Belle of The Ball. She is charming, beautiful, her smile is infectious, she just gives off an aura. As if it isn't enough that she is a wife, mother of two, has a real job, and has booths at two antique malls~~she also sets up twice yearly at Zapp Hall in Warrenton and hosts a fabulous blog party. Her last party was over the top! Fabulous food, wine, tons of bloggers~~some from as far away as France, and a book signing to boot.

There's Ms. Cano on the left giving some direction to none other than Deb and CD from Talking Trash, who also had a fab booth at Warrenton.

A crowd gathers around the book signing table.

Okay so here's where I have to out myself about my poor memory for names... The handsome dude on the left is the owner of Park Hill Collections (sorry I forgot your name), in the middle is the fabulous Melanie of Seed Box Antiques, and sorry I never met the woman on the right... tsk tsk.

The grub.

More bloggers getting to know each other.

And now for pics of T's booth. She had a lot of nature and botanical themes going on, and I think she is the only other person I know who loves wasp nests like I do. She has tons of them...

Here's an inside tip for shopping in T's booth~~rumor has it that when Mr. Garden Antqs Vintage is manning the booth you are likely to get DEEP discounts... Just kidding Theresa!! You go Cruz...

I think she is totally GREAT... some how, I do not know how... she was the first blog I came across about 2 plus years ago and have been addicted every since.

Theresa is amazing, no question. I don't see how she does it all, and not only that, but does it brilliantly! And you too Shelley, you're pretty much the belle of any ball you attend, too!

I heard she was giving great deals on pumpkins!
I had a great time hanging out with all of y'all and I always look forward to it!

Golly...y'all just have the best shows out there. Heck, here, when I am out treasure hunting, I still run across so many people who don't know what good shabby vintage is. ugh! I have admired the "white Wednesday" blogs I run across and would love to be a part of it. Would you add my name and let me know it's okay? Thanks so much and I love your blog.

Hi Shelley. It was a fun evening and Theresa has been a delightfully kind gal from the moment I met her! And it was great to meet so many people there. I'm just thrilled that I got to meet you and spend some time talking together! Hope you're recovering from all the work *smiles*

Blessings... Polly (p.s. I saw a book in your booth/tent and wondered if you still have it - Farm Ballads?)
