..loved that Orange County once again...


...I like -- naw, I love -- everything about my annual trip to Orange County, CA. How fitting that I travel from Orange County, NY to make this pilgrimage each season; I have so many wonderful friends there, and a fab customer base, I adore the excuse to make the jaunt.

This year was my fave to date. Our event at The Paula Shop was just wonderful thanks to our hostess Phyllis Swanson -- store owner and fashion maven. I am so grateful to Phyllis for sharing her oh so artful and fab store as our venue...



Thanks too need to go to uber talented Darren Calkin of Paris to the Moon for the wonderful partnership we enjoy and for sharing his talents... You need to get there before Christmas to see all of Darren's merry offerings showcased now through the holidays at The Paula Shop. (here's Darren with Linda and me...)


And thanks too to the artists who made the trip to join in the fun, share their latest designs and creations and make it all worth it for me...Krys Kirkpatrick, Debbee Thibaut, Jennifer Lanne and Melody Doyel...you girls are the best!

Here's a peek at the art that was on display...































Here are my fave images of the folks who made the days all that they were...





















And of course A BIG THANKS to my helpers, Maria, Loren and Bonnie...could never have done it without you...Loren you are the best of photographers. And, Carolyn and Debbee you spoiled us with dinner at your beautiful homes, thanks sooo much...

AND a special thanks to my wonderful friend Linda...this was your idea Linda and I am so very grateful that we had some special time together and bonded over our classy lunch! (more on my IN - N - Out fetish soon...)


Phyllis, already looking forward to a next time! And, in the meantime, I am enjoying all my fab fashion finds from your racks of delish clothing... (here's Phyllis with her daughter Tiffany)


MORE SOON --
xxoo Jen

Jenn, thank you for making this event happen. I love everything I bought. All the artists are inspired and it is such a pleasure to have their art in my home. Next time you come I would love to have you over for dinner as well.
