Home again... Part 2

Now that you have met the neighbors let me tell you about the celebs that we ran into. The effervescent Pam Kitty Morning came by and mugged with our new fabric line. She is as funny and terrific in person as you would expect her to be from her blog. I took the pic with my camera so the lighting isn’t the very best. It was that or nothing!


Next I ran into Holly Lakehouse and her attention seeking puppy! She had two of these cute little dogs at market and they were, of course, attired in little collars from her terrific new fabric line called Doll Dresses. Holly was concerned that you might not be able to see the puppy collar against the red carpet.
She was right……as usual. Again, the picture was taken with the phone and the color is a little goofy. But look how limber she is!!!! Her booth was smashing as always and was the best in my opinion. I am certain she will be blogging about it.


One of my very favorite designers is Glenna Haley. You will never meet a sweeter and funnier person in your life. She and Karen Snyder stopped by and I laughed until I cried. Glenna and her husband Bill sprung us from captivity and took us out for a delicious dinner and a buggy ride through town. Bill had the limo all polished up and he waiting for us just outside the convention center. If you knew how big the convention center was, you would appreciate what that means to folks with tired and aching feet. What a guy! So kind of them and so fun for us.

I don’t have picture of the most exciting celebrity I met. You will have to take my word for it. I have wanted to meet the elusive Mr. Mark Lipinski for quite some time now and it has just never worked out. He is Mr. Big Deal and getting an audience with him is like getting an audience with Oprah herself. I was standing in line to check my bags at the Contintental Airlines counter early Tuesday morning and who should happen to get in line behind me? None other, I swear to God. I promptly introduced myself and chatted him up a bit.


The photo is from the cover of his mag , Quilter’s Home. He is even prettier in person. He is just one of those people who breeze through a room and stir things up. You find yourself wishing you were going with him no matter where he is headed. Energetic, fun and wears GREAT glasses. Sarah Palin pales in comparison (forgive me Mark!).
Only a day or two of the market round up left. Stay tuned……..
