Callaway Gardens and Mistletoe Market

My sweet friend Traci Alexander held her first Women's Retreat at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain GA a couple of weeks ago. It was a wonderful weekend. She graciously asked me to be a merchant at the retreat. Not only was I honored to be there for her "debut" but I got to meet some new friends.

Oh, I also joined the White Hankie Club at this retreat. I think we might have had just a little too much fun with that one.

This past weekend I was a merchant at the Mistletoe Market in Marietta. This is an annual event hosted by the Cobb County Junior Service League. It was alot of work, but I had a blast. It was fun playing shop girl with my daughter. I also loved having my husband all to myself for a few days. It would appear that the economy woes have hit Georgia as sales were a little slow this year at the Market. Oh well, this to shall pass. Oh, they also had these amazingly decorated Christmas trees on display. I have always wanted my tree to look like one of these, but alas it never does. I hold out hope every year though.

Now I just need to get everything resorted and organized before my next show which is only a couple of weeks away. I did learn one lesson at the Market-other than I should have gone with a bigger booth. Never let your husband help you pack up afterward. For some reason nothing is in it's proper place. Can you say throw and go?!
