This past weekend, it seemed that the stars were aligned and I was able to make the last Tarte show of the season. While it was a VERY long day - 4:15 am - 12:30 am - it was worth every yawn and nearly falling asleep on the way home!
Cindy definitely has a way of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. She creates an experience when you visit her barn, set in the gorgeous Oregon countryside. The magic of Christmas found its way to that barn this weekend - from the beautiful white backdrop, to the mercury glass ornaments, to the sparkles, and the glitter, and the white lights, and the vintage treasures.
And for me, it wasn't only about the incredible shopping. Visiting good friends that I hadn't seen in far too long was the highlight of the day~ From chatting with Tiffany all the way to and from Oregon, to seeing Joe and Jermonne as well as Cindy at the barn, and ending our day with a gorgeous afternoon tea at Lara's beautiful home with her girlies two~ It was definitely one of those days that recharges a girl's soul...
Have a fabulous week!
(and a quick poll - is it too early to be playing holiday music...?)
I need to make a SIGNIFICANT correction in this post. When posting all of these gorgeous photos, I completely omitted Annie, Fannie, and Abigail - the creators and vendors of nearly half of the beautiful barn experience. Many of these photos need to be credited to them - their beautiful creations, their styling, and their eye for creating gorgeous vignettes. I feel awful about not giving them proper credit, as they certain deserve it.
