Petticoats and Parasols

Here it is finally, the post of the Petticoats and Parasols event in Savannah , Georgia!

It has taken me almost a week to recover from all the fun. I can't believe that I can call this work?!?!?!

I went down to teach a class, and take photos of the event. It was over the top beautiful.

The special guest for the event was the lovely Jo Packham, of Where Women Create Fame.  This picture of her I captured pretty much says it all for me. She is one of a kind, and I hope you all have a chance to meet her at least once. Put it on your bucket list for sure…

Jenn's event was located at one of the prettiest places I have ever been, the Ford Plantation.

It was serene and peaceful, and the perfect atmosphere to be inspired to create.

 

Before we made the journey to the plantation, Jenn held a welcome night party, that was dressed to the nine's.

The gift giving was really out of control, both by Jenn, and the ladies who participated, just look at all these goodie bags….

After the welcome party, we all headed out on a trolley for a ghost tour of Savannah. It was a great way to kick off the festivities.

My favorite part of the whole event was Art Day. I can't believe I was here to try and teach these ladies something, they were all such phenomenal artists, they could really teach me a thing or two, rather than the other way around.

Here is Nicole, working on Jenn's parasol project…

The beautiful Christine of Dollybelle's Atelier made this pretty mannequin as our second class.

Miss Jodie of Everything Vintage flattered me when she made my class project by including one of my fine art prints into the collage.

In the pic is also a snippet of Miss Shelly's beautiful mannequin project.

Christine really surprised everyone with yet another of her many talents by hand drawing these lovely pictures for some of us girls.

The most anticipated part of the whole weekend was cupcake vendor night held at the most adorable cupcake shop EVER….

I spent all my money that night, and them some. When you see these vendors, you will understand my dilemma.

We were all invited to dress as southern belles for vendor night, and these girls went all out~

Shelly and Sylvia in my mind were the cutest southern belles. They get my vote for Best Dressed!

I could fill ten more posts on this weekend, but I am going to defer to Jenn's blog for you can see all my photos I took from the event on her blog, and hear her perspective!!  She really is the best hostess I have ever encountered, and she worked so hard. She pulled off an amazing event!

Cupcakes on Clouds and Forests of Candy Flowers

Every little girl at one time or another has had a dream of a magical evening such as this….you lay your head on a pillow and envision ladies donning fancy dresses, layers of luscious colors upon tiers of ruffles and streams of ribbons. Fluffy cupcakes float by on clouds, pink bunnies live in forests of candy flowers.

Please don't wake me from this dream……..I need to hold onto it it just a little longer…….

Breaking News……

Breaking News coming to you from Atlanta, Georgia…..this just in….

I am a DUMB A$$.

Yes, you heard me right, I am an idiot. This is why.

I am here in beautiful Atlanta, Ga with my dear sweet friend Miss Suzanne Duda having a wonderful time talking and laughing, as I prepare to travel on Wednesday to sweet Savannah to attend Miss Jenn's Petticoats and Parasols event. 

None of this makes me a dumb a$$.

 However, what I found out while I have been visiting dear sweet Suzanne, a friend who is obviously much smarter than I, is that all the last posts in the last months that I have been replying to all your sweet heartfelt comments have not reached any one of you!! I had absolutely no idea, but I was beginning to wonder why I had not heard responses from people, so I brought it up to sweet Suzanne. Apparently when I reply in my typepad account, it does not email the person who left the comment, it only posts it to my blog. This is why I am a dumb a$$!

Since I read the comments in my account or email, I had no clue they were just being posted on my blog, and no where else.

I am so sorry, and feel the need to express that to all of you. I have left you all some truly heartfelt comments in reply to yours, and simply had no idea no one was recieving them. If you would like to see any of the replys I have made to you all, apparently they can be found on my blog and not in your inbox.:)
I am so happy to tell you that now that I know of the problem, I promise that I will be responding to everyone in a much more effective manner!!! Thank you to all who have been leaving me wonderful comments, and felt that you were not recieving comments back.

I hope you can all forgive me for being such a dumb a$$.

xoxo, Tiffany
