Artful, Unqiue and Whimsical: That's how I'd describe the Autumn Petite Retreat Show on Camano Island, WA. My friend Rebecca and I spent a lovely day together, meeting lovely people and looking at gorgeous things.
My Mothers Buttons had so many fabulous items, it was difficult to know where to look... shiny things kept catching my eye.
So detailed and special. Speaking of special, Deb and Bob Kennedy from Retreat come up with the most fun and pretty ideas.
Like this "Witches Hat" mirror. Wait, that witch looks familiar.
The Kennedys always have a fresh point of view.
From the smallest spice jar...
Deb made a bunch of these darling pumpkins...
The barn was packed with fabulous things.
And of course Deb matched her decor perfectly.
Garden Party had a floral inspired point of view...
There were plenty of vintage treasures.
And this dress which I'm pretty sure was created out of crepe paper!
I had a hard time resisting this phone.
Rose-Marie had so many things to see...
Like these Bakelite utensils
And these vintage skates.
But the really amazing thing about Rose-Marie is the talented woman behind it-- Jo Marie Richman
She makes all these beautiful skirts for ladies and girls
And aprons like this one modeled by Rebecca
See the background behind her?
That's where photographer Elise Liptack of Elise Marie Photography was snapping photos of folks at the show. Elise has a magical way of taking pictures and capturing the personality of her subjects. I'm so inspired by her work.
Have a beautiful day! Hugs, Malia
