Fun times in Canton......

Deidra and I have been back from our Canton weekend now a week tonight, and I thought it would be a good idea to update our blog before I call it a night! I must admit though after watching our Dallas Mavs win and take home the title of NBA CHAMPS, I am just a tad bit still wired up! LOL! We had a great and fun filled Canton weekend, especially on Friday when the Gilded Life Girls came riding in to town...Canton that is, and on a chartered bus to boot! Shea and Debbie hosted a 3 day "creating" event in Dallas at their home which happens to be an old Church that words don't even begin to describe!!! The day spent shopping in Canton was part of the girls 3 day event......and they do know how to shop and have fun! We made so many new friends from around the United States, and among the group we were honored to meet Jo Packham, Editor-In-Chief of the magazine "Where Women Create"! Not only did we have the group shop with us, we also fed them lunch....right smack in the middle of our booth! We could never have done this without the help of Deidra's sister "Niecee" and my niece Sheena.....THANK YOU is not enough as these two are some kind of hard workers!!! This is one of the best and rewarding things about having our business in Canton......meeting and making new friends each month who have a love for "shabby, chippy, vintage decor. and "junk" aka treasures that is!!! I have to end with saying to Shea and Debbie....WE WILL MISS YOU, and Deidra and I are soooooo honored that we got to be apart of your last Gilded Life Event in Dallas before heading West......back to California!


Cathy an Deidra


  1. You girls are so much fun!!! I hope I can make my way there one day from SC. I will work for y'all for free if you can show me around! lol!

    take care!

  2. Maybe you girls should start some type of blog party like I host each season in Warrenton! Glad you had fun, sorry I missed seeing you all. But there's always the end of the month.

  3. Wish I could have made it-again- this past month. Be sure to come to athens this Saturday for WT Junke & Disorderly sale, You'll find some great deals. I know I'll get back to Canton soon, It's just so darn hot right now.

    See ya soon,

  4. It's all beautiful girls! Wish I could have torn away to meet them, but you know how it is during First Monday! It was a great show, wasn't it?

    Several of us bloggers have been discussing a blog party this Fall that I'm hosting at the Shoppe, maybe we can make it a round robin or something!

  5. Wish I could have made it to Canton - maybe bext time! I'm so jealous that you got to spend time with Jo Packham! How fun!
