YOU HAD ME AT HELLO

Besides being immersed for almost two weeks in the best antiques and junque you can lay your eyes on, Texas Antique Week is all about the fabulous people you meet. I am so lucky to have met some of the most talented and inspiring bloggers out there. Many of them are now true friends and even though we only see each other in Texas, we chat often and share our lives via text, emails and phone conversations.

I love it when bloggers stop by my booth and introduce themselves.

Sweet SUSIE HARRIS stopped by last show and was nice enough to let me borrow this pic of she and I.

Me on the left, Susie on the right.

Then of course there is my bestie TERESA CANO aka Garden Antiques Vintage.

Sweet T and moi.

Last show we were graced with a booth from GINA GALVIN of Peacock Park Designs and JO PACKHAM of Where Women Create.


Gina and Jo.

I was so happy to meet JODIE LEJEUNE aka Everything Vintage and ANGELIQUE aka Six In One Hand.

Jodie and Angelique.

Always a pleasure to see HEATHER BULLARD in Texas.


Heather and moi.

Oh lawdy there's the divine MISS DEB aka Talking Trash looking fabulous.


Teresa's blogger party is the happening place to rub elbows with some fabulous bloggers.


Theresa aka Time Worn Interiors, moi, Jo Packham, and Lauri from Chippys. Theresa and Lauri are my besties for sure.

Here's sweet ANNE aka Fiona and Twig with TOT and Deb.



And then there's delightful ROBIN BROWN aka Magnolia Pearl... She's just the yummiest.


Me and Robin.

And now for the name dropping...

I don't always get a pic with all the fab bloggers that I see but here's a list of some of them that I've been blessed to meet...

DEB FROM CURIOUS SOFA

ELIZABETH FROM ELIZABETH HOUSE

CAROLYN WESTBROOK FROM CAROLYN WESTBROOK HOME

CAROL FROM RAISED IN COTTON

KIM HOEGGER FROM KIM HOEGGER HOME

MARLA FROM MATILDAS MOUSE

COREY AMARO

POLLY FROM COUNTING YOUR BLESSINGS

ZITA FROM MLLE MAGPIE

JEANINE FROM CHIPPY SHABBY

REBECCA ERSFELD FROM REBECCA ERSFELD FOR VINTAGE LIVING

RACHEL ASHWELL

LISA FROM LA RUSTIQUE MARKET

GALE FROM WIZARD OF ONCE WAS

Now I have probably forgotten someone, so please forgive me if I did. The blogger party is such a blur that it is next to impossible to remember everyone. The wine doesn't help either...

If you are coming to Marburger and/or the blogger party please be sure to say hello. I would love to meet you...

Woweee! I follow so many of these blogs! How exciting for you to have the opportunity to meet all these talented ladies. :)
Happy weekend to you,
Zuzu

Callie Magee Antiques said...

I also met you there but I am sure you would not remember since I am a nobody when it comes to bloggers.
I just like to hang out.
I always enjoy Theresa's blog parties. She does a remarkable job of throwing these Texas Shindigs, don't you think?
Take care and maybe next time I see you there I will remind you.

What is really exciting is how the list keeps growing and the friendships keep getting stronger! I cannot wait to see you and get my hug!
I love to say I'm not famous...but I get to be through association. You're at the top of my list when I start name dropping...and believe me...I DO!
Love you to pieces!

Amazing indeed

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Okay, now you had me at Jodie, Anne, TOT, Deb, Rebecca, Theresa, & YOU! Not to mention all the other rock stars you mentioned. I am wanting to go to that blog party so bad. I think I'd be so star struck I'd just sit & stare. I'm hoping to escape that weekend & come hang out. If you see a crazy looking girl with eyes glazed over that's me. Lisa

June said...

Boo hoo, sob...sob...one of the things on my bucket list is to meet you. While I am thrilled that you were able to meet so many awesome bloggers, I'm bawling my eyes out that not one of them was ME!!!
Someday I WILL meet you my friend.
hugs
(awesome pictures of you BTW)and your friends))

KarenSue said...

Oh my I wish I was going. Maybe someday, I can only dream.
You do know some famous bloggers, well when you are famous yourself it helps!
Have a great time!
Sue

Girl. I am so excited I could pee my pants! It's not long now! And I can't wait for Theresa's party! I am looking forward to seeing everyone! My mind doesn't work as good as yours cause I never remember all the names of bloggers I meet! I guess I'm just to excited!

Secret Garden Cottage said...

Looks like such a fabulous time, Shelley! How fun to get to meet so many blogger buddies. Thanks for sharing the pics... they were great!
Hugs ~ Jo :)

Garden Antqs Vintage said...

You named some great folks for sure. Can't wait for the next time we all see each other.

The Feathered Nest said...

Shelley!!! I wanna come!!!! What a superstar extravaganza!!!!! I would love to meet each and every one of you ~ I hope it's amazing girl and you all have the most wonderful time ~ please take tons of photos for us goobs that won't make it, hugs and love, Dawn

June said...

Shelley you blessed me today with your words to me. I don't think I could ever tell you what they mean to me. I have been blessed to get to know you and yes, I cannot wait to meet you in person too. I know it will happen and boy, when it does, I will probably hug you till you cry uncle. It's always so interesting to me how a person can get to know someone that loves the same things and feels the same things, without ever meeting and feel a kinship to them.
You are a dear friend and I am grateful to know you.
hugs

Heaven's Walk - said...

Elizabeth Maxson said...

I wish I could have jumped through the screen and squeezed you all! It made me smile that I made "the list." :-) No wonder you are a Sweet Pea...thanks for being you and know that those who were standing next to you were just as thrilled - trust me - I was when I finally got to meet you.

Love
Elizabeth
