Christine LeFever

Oh what a beautiful post! Favorite artists and all! Thank you, Donna (Dee!)for sharing all of this splendor. I've been off assisting my children move into their first 'own' homes as opposed to renting, and each got his/hers within a week of each other. It was gratifying and fun, and now it's so good to be back in my art room.



Absolutely gorgeous! The bat babies, the moon man, your gold, ivory and black display, the brighter colors, I just want top jump into these photos. Thanks for sharing, I wish I could have been there, Pam

Priscilla/Sweet Remembrance

It all looks so fabulous!
I wish I stilled lived in Pleasanton, I miss out on so much!


Wow, this is just a feast for the eyes! Beautiful things. I can't stop looking at it. Very nicely done/


Deanna Huggard

What beautiful, talented ladies you all are. I love everything pictured. If I lived close and it was possible for me to go I could have spent a small fortune on goodies. I love Fall and Halloween. My favourite time of year. I decorated for all ocassions and do tend to go overboard for this time of year. Congrats to you all for a job well done. Blessings and Hugs, Deanna


Donna, your booth is so gorgeous I can't even tell you how much I wish I was at this show! Your work is PHENOMENAL! I saw pics of your booth on so many blogs and I keep saying I wish I could have been there! xo Shannon

Tinsell and Whimsy

Thank you again for your email and blog comments. Soooooo... you may add photographer to your resume as well. If someone was not at the show......they were through your lens. Love the dome home.....she was certainly not a peasant under glass!


I'd have been in Heaven if I'd have been there..
just awesome!!


Michelle Sylvia

Gosh darn it! I knew that my husband should have accepted that last job offer to live in California!!!

Breathtaking! You all are magnificent! I want one of everything. Thanks for sharing pics! I wish I could have been there to shop!



Hi Donna,
Your art is wonderful!!

Thanks for the comments on my blog. No, we didn't meet. I was only there a short time. I was going to introduce myself to you but you were busy talking to someone, then I went to visit with Connie & never did get back to your booth. Next time I promise.

Diana Frey

What a treat it is to visit your blog and beautiful art. Your event looks wonderful. Perhaps I can visit the next one.

The sidebar is a great idea.

What an incredible display of amazingly talented artists! You all look like you had so much fun, and the table tops were literally brimming with such wonderful creations... for a moment I felt like I was four years old again, and the Sears Wish Book had arrived.... time to drool and make a list!
Hope I can come see it all in person some day. Donna, all of your things are (were... I'm sure they're all sold!) just beautiful! And I know you put enormous effort into getting it all ready... it paid off in spades! Now, time for a nap, Queenie Dear... you've earned it.
