The Party's Over...

but memories of this day will remain in our hearts forever.

The Attic Girls would like to thank everyone who attended our 1 year celebration this past Sunday. It's always fun to see our regular customers who feel more like old friends! Lori from Vignettes arrived a few days early with a beautiful arrangement and card since she was unable to attend. She is the most thoughtful person in the business and has encouraged us every step of the way.

Jenna made the Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes..Yum!

Kandi made my favorite Almond Cake and we had Cupcake Chardonnay.

Once the invitations went out, we received lots of inquiries on who our surprise guest was! Well, we never let the cat out of the bag except I did have to tell my dear friend Lori since she was unable to attend.

Our special guest was none other than Ms. Sophie! Yes, my puggie, the Queen was wearing her pearls for the event. A few months back, Ms. Sophie graciously accepted our invitation to be honorary guest at our event, after we agreed to provide turkey & sweet potato meatball snacks and Perrier.

Ms. Sophie had a photo shoot a few months back, wearing nothing but her crown. We had it printed onto pillows, tea towels and aprons. The tea towels say "Queen Of The Kitchen" and "Reine de la Cuisine" The pillow says "The Queen is not granting an audience today" She wasn't as patient as I had hoped for, but she did stay seated in her chair for a few minutes. She preferred mingling with the guests on the floor as she loves attention and received plenty of it.

We had some visitors who drove an hour to see us and we appreciated it!

Christie Repasy stopped by with Rita Reade, who presented us with an adorable Coronado sign. Isn't she sweet? Besides painted signs, Rita offers soldering classes and participates in La Maison Rustique Barn Sale in Temecula.

The model in Tamerie came out again when she decided to try this vintage number on. It's still available and so darling.

Dana came by with her daughter Sarah, who is as cute as a bug and always makes me laugh. I had to run in to get my camera when I saw her sitting on this chair that is stitched with RELAX. She worked the camera like only Sarah can do. Mom, I think she's got a future in comedy because this kid can make everyone laugh!

Dana and Tamerie

At the end of the day we were indeed tired, but not too tired to have some fun with the camera.

Was it the wine or were we all just a little goofy by days end?
I think it was a little of both. :)
