passionate for white...

The weekend weather here was just beautiful which made it perfect for people to get out and attend our Vintage Holiday Sale at the shop!  Now I will admit, I get jealous hearing all you fair goers down in Texas and out in Ohio who get to meet some of their favorite bloggers at those big events.  Well guess who I got to meet on Saturday...
The lovely Diane from Passionate For White!!!  It was so exciting  to finally meet her!  She comes into the shop quite often but never when I am working.  I am sure you all know her already but just in case you have not had the pleasure yet here is a little peek at some of my favorite photos of her home from her blog...



 She truly is passionate for white and a sweetheart as well!  Thank you Diane it was such a treat to meet you!!! 

The shop looked amazing for the sale, although I was not quite ready to listen to Christmas music for that long this early!  Here are a few displays that caught my eye...

Mary Ellen did a wonderful job creating these displays...



I just love this neutral palette with a little bit of sparkle.  If you like a pop of color she has that too...
Karen's shabby booth made my jaw drop...


Pam has these sweet ornaments...


As well as these vintage Chatterbox books...


I did pick up a few treasures (with my eye on a few more) that I will share with you soon.  I am joining the fun today over at Faded Charm where Kathleen is hosting White Wednesday (thank you Kathleen!).  Have fun visiting all the other wonderful white posts and do not forget to visit Diane over at Passionate for White too!!

Isn't it great getting to meet someone who you've only visited with through a monitor?
