Last month Nelley Kelley Designs, Stella and Dot and Shadyside Sweets got together to host a little September Sip and Shop event.  Of course, we did a little more sipping than shopping but we had a great time. It was a perfect post summer catch up evening. It was fun collaborating with my two friends Lucy and Cherie so much that it inspired us to plan another before the holidays pounce. I was having a little too much fun so didn’t get around to taking many pictures – here are a few from the evening.

I will tell you that I made this necklace mine!  It is so gorgeous, can be worn with or without the feathers and it comes with another set of blue feathers in case your outfit needs a bluish boost.

I had some of my original artwork on display along with prints and cards, french crystal paperweights and more.

My iPhone 5,5s and 6,6s cases were a hit.  I only made a few of them to test the waters so to speak but each and everyone of them sold out.


We nibbled on french macarons that were as light as a feather.


And had plenty to sip on throughout the night …

Shadyside Sweets provided us with plenty of samples to taste and also had pre-package boxes ready to ship to our college kids – a clever idea.  I know my son was particularly happy to have shipment show up at his dorm.

The dark chocolate was amazing and went beautifully with a glass of red.

Thanks to Lucy McBride and Cherie Langell for sharing such a fun night with me.  I can’t wait to do it again.

See you soon,

      I totally agree and can’t wait for our next get together. Also – I will be needing a bauble or two to wear around my neck for the holidays. Hello Stella and Dot!
