Twinkle toes.....

alright.

yes...i am having a few glasses of my favorite red wine as i write......

and if you can name it....then you win a prize.

maybe....

yes....that is me....

and i have a wand in my hand.....

with a scarf...

and a sweater...

and a hat...




i'm just letting you know it's Autumn here....

it topped out at about 55 this weekend.....

but i'm not complaining....

because i love this weather..

bring.it.on

but i'm sure you are wondering about the wand...

well.....my good friends decided to surprise me with it on saturday..

it's a long story...but if you read this post {here}..then you know that

i was heckled the ENTIRE time about the white skirt i had on...

so they called up a mutual friend....to make me a wand...

and that mutual friend {Janet}..showed up on Saturday with this wrapped up gift for me.

voila....

the wand.

I told the kids tonight....

i guess i'm gonna be the tooth fairy for Halloween...

and all they did was nod...and say...

yup...i guess so.




This is the "studio~shop~space"....whatever you want to call it.

I called it Industrial chic....at it's finest.....






...and if you don't eat flour or sugar....then you should skip this part.....



because the crepe's were good....

i mean great....

i mean......

well...

i had 4 of them.....

YES.....

you read that right....i had 4 of them.

I ate my children's crepe's....

so of course they are not talking to me...

but guess what...

I . WILL. LIVE.

i might be a little heavier though....

but seriously...who's counting caleries right now.






i forgot to mention something......

my friend Denisa....the girl who is making the crepe's....

well.....

she has a "chalet" in the south of France.

yes...you heard right.......

a "chalet" in the south of France...

and she offered me the use of it.

BUT...

she said there is no running water...

eeeeek

the good thing is.....

there is water out back...which you can pump yourself.

So i told her....are you kidding me???

I've been dreaming about traveleing to the south of France and

staying at a "chalet".....

and pumping my own water !!

seriously......

pumping my own water at a chalet in the south of France......

sorry...

i'm getting carried away....
again...











I met the most wonderful girls on Saturday.

Cutie Martha and hubbie drove up from St. Louis {pictured above},

sweet Alee drove up from Indiana...

and lots of lurkers.....

i love lurkers by the way....

they are the girls that know everything about you...

but you know nothing about them....







speaking of lurking....

don't know how this pic got here...

somehow....

i was thinking of the beach...

and surfboards...

and sand....
with a bit of sun....








back to Saturday.....
and that bit of industrial chic....
wait till you see what i'm going to do with that library cart....































It was fun.
The eating part...
the meeting new friends...
but not the part where i stepped on the scale...
and realized......
that i have to go to the gym....
twice a day for 6 months......
but that's just me.....
How was your weekend?

Love your wand, your pics, and your fun commentary. If only I lived a bit closer I too would have been a lurker. :-)

Gigi said...

What a great post! I think it's fabulous that you ate 4 crepes. xo

Farmgirl Paints said...

Love crepes!! I would have had 4 too. You are too funny with your wand.

Rachelle said...

I don't drink wine- so I can't guess what your favorite kind is.

But if you can guess what kind of tequila I'm drinking. You can win a prize.

Okay, you're right. I'm not drinking tequila right now.

I love your wand! I wish I had one!
I work in a restaurant and let me tell you about a crepe I had when we were slow one day.

5ish words, Deep fried, chocolate, peanut butter crepe with whip cream.

Oh yeah I went there. I gained 20 lbs looking at it.

So anyways, you make me laugh. Thank you :) Sorry this is entirely too long.

Transparent Mama said...

I am soon moving to cold weather and taking notes on your adorable cold weather outfit. I'll have to get myself a wand too.

Cathi said...

Wonderfully beautiful post....and the crepes....yummy!!

{ L } said...

LOL! You are too funny. I love reading what you write and I know I've already told you this, but I so enjoy being on your blog. It is very peaceful and beautiful. Anways...I've never had a crepe before. :( And I certainly wish I could have been at your sale.

Teresa Sheeley said...

You are adorable, and the wand just suits you perfect. :) Everything looked beautifully charming.

Smiles,

Julie Harward said...

You..have such a darling personality..I loved this post! The crepes...oh, they look divine (I could eat that many easily!) I love your jacket, so very cute! The wand...does it work? That would be awesome wouldn't it? Come say hi anytime:D

Julie said...

How cute are you! One day I will have to make it out there and shop in person. Fun weekend you had.

xo

Kacey said...

Kasey, you did such a great job! As always, wish I could have seen it in person. My husband, however, does not. You know, that pesky money issue...

Oh, and those crepes - YUM! I think I just canceled out today's workout just looking at the pictures.

Love the wand. Does it work?

a little bit vintage said...

Thanks for making me smile....it's been one of those days. I LOVE your cute blue jacket! :) If I lived closer you can bet that I would have been there with bells on. :)

Smiles,
Rachel

♥Aubrey said...

You are simply adorable...wand and all lady! Luv the toothfairy idea :)
Mmmm crepes...yummy!!! Wish this screen was scratch & sniff. Lol
Looks like you had a fantastic weekend. I never get tired of looking at your wonderful pics. They are soooo dreamy with your decor.

Reese & Marie said...

Looks like so much fun! Everything you touch is magical. Now for the wine... I may be way off base, but is it Two Buck Chuck? Ya know, Charles Shaw? I may be offending your wine sense, but hey, I drink it sometimes too. They have a white one that I actually really like. Anyways, if it's some fancy wine you favor, please forgive me. ;-)

My Vintage Treasures said...

GREAT Wand!!! What a beautiful work area, i'm so jealous :) Love your post Tooth Fairy!!!

Simply Mel said...

Maybe if you click your heels and wave your magic wand, those calories will disappear?!?! Great post, and yes, a chalet in the South of France even without water would be DIVINE!

Ali said...

Sounds like you had one great weekend! Crepesx4, wine, new friends, and 1 fabulous wand= one amazing weekend. We had rain here. Oh and don't forget the humidity! Wish I could have been there! Glad you had a nice weekend! Love the pictures!

Simply Me Art said...

Do you have Fairy Wings under that Pretty Jacket too? I would use that wand everyday on my kids too. Those Crepes look Divine! Looks like you had a Great time! "Poof" Im off with one wave of the Wand...Jamie

Reese & Marie said...

p.s. I forgot to mention about the chalet. Yes. You should totally go. And pump your own water. That would be amazing. You would be in the south of france!!!

Jacqueline said...

Looks as if a great time was had by all.
Red wine, eh ?
My favourite is Cabanet Sauvingon, and any others coloured red !!!!!Have one for me and worry about calories another day ! XXXX

adrienne said...

Kasey, your fete (pretend there's a circumflex on that e) looks just fabulous! I'm so sorry to have missed it. I was at the dr. with 2 of the three kiddos and all 3 of us got antibiotics. No shopping and crepe eating for me!! I'm glad you had a great time and I look forward to the next one!

Marit said...

I recently became a lurker...
Love your wand!

alee said...

you are just to darn cute!

Suzann @ The Olive Cottage said...

Well, I didn't think it was possible, but you're cuter in person than on your blog. I'm so happy I came, even though I had to scurry away to the car auction. Love my shelf and I'm dreaming of where I should put it.

paula said...

where to start! It all looks so wonderful. And yes pumping your own water sounds well worth it.

truly blessed said...

Brandie said...

I just love coming here on Monday mornings. You always make me smile. Everything looks absolutely divine. You have such a talent girlie. I too have been thinking about all of the weight I have to lose but alas, the holidays are coming and I can't be held responsible for all of the delicious, fatty foods I will consume. After the new year, I swear!

The Flying Bee said...

Well, Mrs. Toothfairy...I am so sad I missed the show. Everything looked beautiful! Can't wait to see your pics for Halloween.

Adrienne

lisakay said...

I wish so bad I could have come but I'm way too far away. I was going to guess Charles Shaw as well. I'm going to have to start waking up in the middle of the night to be one of the firsts to comment because of the time difference! Everything looks great by the way!

B said...

Oh, so wish I coulda been one of your gals for the day :O( Glad you had so much fun :O) B x

traci said...

everything looks beautiful kasey. so bummed that i missed it. lots of homecoming/reunion activities filled my weekend.

Kaydence Mesy said...

What a fun weekend! I wish I could have come to your shop and had some of those amazing crepes!! This weekend I tried to make your pumpkin blueberry bread but I failed miserably! Blueberries are out of season and were crazy expensive at the store. I tried Trader Joe's but they were out and didn't have canned pumpkin yet :( I might have to use frozen blueberries, boo. I'm trying again tonight. I'll let you know how it goes :)

Sarah said...

Sounds like a wonderful outcome and loads of fun! France is fabulous, I want to go back, hmm...could you pump your own water or not? I couldn't tell by your writing tone! ;0)
More pics of the shop please!!! :)

lherlihy said...

Really, how could you stop at 4?? I enjoyed one raspberry crepe and had to stand up from the picnic table and WALK AWAY! Loved your show and all the lovelies for sale. Your studio is inspiring to us lurkers and wannabe creative entrepreneurs. Hope the weekend was profitable and fun. I'll be enjoying your next adventure via your blog as I sew girl's frocks and hope to make a go of it, too. All the Best!

Nora said...

I absolutely love your photos. I wish I could have been there. So amazing. Thanks for sharing!

You look adorable in the pics, and the wand, what more can I say, except don't ever tell me NOT to do something or surely I will!!

krys kirkpatrick said...

Funny and inspiring. thank-you for the great read with my morning coffee.

I know it's weird, but I can track with you 100%. The mind was meant to wander.

A beautiful sunny fall day here in Washington state. Loving it!

jules said...

I have a great idea...just let me come with you to France...and I will pump the water! So when are we going? Can't wait to hit all the flea markets...I better go practice my French. Ciao...dang...that's not right!

ps how can I buy the day bed? Do you ship to California??

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

Very sweet wand and the store looked great!
P.S. I love crepes and would have gladly shared some of those calories with you.
~Michelle

donna said...

Could you be any cuter? I think not! I LOVE the coat by the way...I am just sick I could not slip away for this delightful little event you held...Please say you will have many more especially if they are in the Spring...I can escape in the Spring.
Okay so is the bed available? I think it would make a great sofa!
Hope you have a divine day and remainder of the week...dj,
