Meeting Martha!

Hope you all had a nice St. Patrick's Day!!

I had a very exciting day this past Saturday. I got to meet Martha of MJ Ornaments. http://mjornaments.blogspot.com/ We met in Ventura at Garden Memories. http://www.gardenmemoriesgifts.com/

You see, Martha sells her lovely handmade charms at the same shop that sells my boxes, hats, crowns, etc. Martha lives much farther from Ventura than I do, so she doesn't get to the shop very often. We planned to meet there, and I am so glad we did. I showed the charms she made for my daughter, and I a few posts ago. She is so talented, pretty and nice. Martha hasn't had her blog too long, so if you haven't visited her please do. You will love it. I had a pretty good week, considering that I met Jamie of Simply Me Art on Tuesday, and Martha on Saturday.

This is a shot of Martha's charms in the case with my boxes. We think they go well together.
As you can see, we were having some fun playing in Barbara's beautiful shop. Girls have to play!!

At the top of my post is a really nice award that Martha received, and was nice enough to pass on, to me. I in turn will pass it on to, Ashley of http://thedraperhouse.blogspot.com/ and Liz of http://mabelshouse.blogspot.com/ They both are fabulous writers, and if you haven't visited their blogs before, please do. You will be glad you did.

Thanks Martha, it was so nice meeting you. Let's meet again soon!

Have a great Tuesday!

I like that you're modeling one of your crowns, Rosemary. Letting out your inner Glinda the Good Witch, eh? :) It sounds like you had a nice day, and it's wonderful you're able to meet others with such complementary styles.

Hope you have a terrific week! -Jenn

Hi Rosemary, So happy to have discovered your blog. I lived in California for most of my life but am now living in Virginia. I told my sister, who lives in Simi Valley, about you and your lovely creations and referred her to Garden Memories. She visited the shop this past weekend...I'm so jealous. (She's sending me a picture of herself and the owner.) Anyway, she loved your creations too and enjoyed her shopping trip. Have a great week.

Sounds like a fun week for sure.
Your boxes look very pretty with her charms...

Oh, you both look so cute and I love the crown Rosemary. A charm in one of your darling boxes would be so sweet. Hugs, Linda

Congratulations on the award Rosemary.
Looks like you girls had a fun time playing.

Lisa said...

That Garden Memories looks like a great shop! I think the owner must have impeccable taste having you and Martha's 'pretties' on hand.

I love your crown and wand too!

That's WICKED! as my teenage nephew in London would say....it means GREAT! lol

I'm so glad you had such a marvelous time. Your boxes do indeed look wonderful with her charms. It really is so special when you can meet another artist and share laughs, ideas, and dreams.

Amy said...

Such a lovely display of your crowns and her charms. Just yummy! It sounds like you had a really good time meeting some new friends this week. I only wish I lived closer so I could visit the store where you two have such lovely things. Amy

Deb said...

Garden Memories looks like a wonderful shop and your creations look beautiful displayed with the charms. Congratulations on your blog award too Rosemary! :-}

Hi Rosemary!

Thanks for voting in the Limerick Contest. No, you were not late in voting. I am tickled that both you and Cielo voted for Debbie because she is a non-blogger—but a very enthusiastic supporter and friend. She will love it!

I enjoyed meeting Martha! I have stepped on over to her blog and I will be visiting her website.

Have a great evening!

How fun! Both of your items are so pretty. They do make for a lovely display in the case together.

Hi Rosemary
I am finally getting around to visit you since I've returned home. Looks like you've been busy as usual. That must have been fun meeting some other bloggers. I would be curious to meet some of the bloggers I talk with too! Like you for example!
