Bohemian Bliss Soiree & More.....

Been gone from the blog for awhile.
Sorry folks.
Trying to get back... things stacked up on me.
A few new changes to the blog.
Trying some new code and things-computer nerd talk.
Last time I posted I was on my way to the
"Bohemian Bliss Soiree & Vintage Market" thrown by
the talented duo of Dan and Kristin Alber.
Kristin is the owner of "Blissful Living Studio"
and "Domestic Bliss" here in town.
A must stop for all with curio style desires and hip cat like design passions.
Everytime I enter the store it reminds me how I want to live my life.
I want to surround myself with "grand and pretty things".
Yes I said "grand and pretty things"!
I want to pack the entire store into that shabby art cave I call a home.
Someday... perhaps when I can spell my name like M!ke in my blog.
Then I will be able to live my life like a NICK Drake car commercial.
Wear dandy clothes, host secret crafting holiday parties,
have the best house on the block during Halloween,
and home school all my children.
Until then..... shabby, hand made goodies and decor of
my own making it will need to be.
NO kids yet. Just unkept animals in my house.
Cute, bad mannered animals that take over my bed at night.
Anyway... we had an invite to attend from
a good and charming friend Diva Tricia from Vintage Bliss.
Who looked quite grand and had a damn cute booth set up.
The event had great atmosphere- a perfect Americana summer night!

Caught up with a few good friends- some truly big hearted folks!

Good to see a few old faces and some new.
Would have had a few great shots of folks and the like-
but my camera suffered a quiet tantrum.

Oh yes- we got dressed up for the event....

Here are a few pics...

A big "Thanks" to the charming Laura Ingalls Gunn
for this pic of Lesley and I!
