Hello, My fans! We had such a Lovely event!!!! I was dressed in my darling "little black dress", and my wonderful black net and pearl scarf. Everyone just raved about how amazing I looked!
Oh, the barn looked wonderful too. There was a French bed with a umbrella over it made out of all vintage lace and linens.
There was a fabulous apothecary cabinet out of an old pharmacy in New York.
It was filled with all types of love potions and perfume bottles!
We also had a beautiful French vitrine, with lots of ormolu on it and all kinds of pretties inside on the glass shelves. There were also a lot of vintage award ribbons that were made into Valentine ribbons. If there were a contest for cuteness, I'm sure I would win first place!
There was lots of pink and red everywhere. We even had a fountain with little red lights floating in the water. I thought that was cool!
We had a beautiful French birdcage filled with all kinds of moss and quail eggs. I would have loved to eat one of those eggs, but my mom didn't quite see it my way?!?
Wow! My Mom found this amazing French religious tapestry and brass church candlesticks.
There were old romantic statues, lovely fireplace mantels, beautiful antique silver and love was just in the air!
Our customers were so wonderful and loving, we were able to raise a nice little sum of money to help out our Courtney with all the medical bills for her cancer treatment.
Well, so much was sold that my Mom has been traveling to find more fantastic antiques for our next event!
I'm sure you're so excited to see what I will be wearing next month....but you will just have to come and see!
Kisses to all my wonderful admirers and fans, Matilda

This event was more like a winters nightmare to me! I had to wear a frilly skirt, oversized wings and a too heavy, too large crown!
My Mom told me that “fame comes at a price”, so I got an attitude adjustment and got ready to meet my fans!!
And did the fans come!!! We were overwhelmed with customers all excited to see our amazing wonderland! There were thousands of white lights everywhere. Snow covered the ground. The table tops were full of lighted and vintage silver trees!
There was also a beautiful fireplace mantel with a huge mirror and old church windows and wings even bigger than mine!
Then there was an old, old fountain filled with sea shells, blue glass balls and jewelry. It even had beautiful aqua water coming out of it. There were lots of amazing old leaded glass windows…….
We also had a great selection of old Christmas tree holders and so many fabulous ornaments
In the back part of the barn there were lots of traditional Christmas decor and beautiful antique pieces.
This was our last event of 2010 and we are now taking a break….
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night…..

Well our show was pretty cool, I must admit! Beautiful Christmas trees, lots of vintage decorations, amazing church finds, and great architectural pieces!
There was also this fantastic couch with all down cushions and lots of beautiful cushions and pillows! But I didn’t get to sleep on it! I had to sleep in this little wood manager with straw in it!!! That is just not right! There were also these amazing Italian candelabras that my mom had a hard time parting with. I don’t know why she needs anything with fat little cherubs on them when she already has me!! I loved all the bright pink and the vintage ornaments and shinny old lights!
There were a lot of scenes of baby Jesus and the wise men from very large to tiny little crèche's to remind us of the birth of Christ.
All in all it was just wonderful and being the star of the show is exhausting!
