BLISSFEST in Mesa Arizona



Yesterday I went to my first Blissfest in Mesa, it is sponsored by a store named Domestic Bliss which is an incredible place to visit on it's own. They had shut down the side street and the people were all there. It was a beautiful morning and the vendors were great!!!! I got to meet some of my favorite people from Blogs I visit and finally buy some of their goodies!




I have taken some photos of the goodies I bought....I could have bought a lot more.....a lot of talented artists and beautiful furniture was there.


These first photographs are just a few we took to remember the event The first one is with my sister in law Jo Burgess




This is by bestest friend Linnie, we have know each other since we were 17.





For a donation you could kiss these sweet pups....I gave him the money anyhow! :)











Here are a few of my goodies I bought!



This is one of my favorite people! I love her blog and her art! http://mosaicqueen.typepad.com/my_weblog/ It was nice finally meeting you Michelle!
















This is one of the pieces I bought! I just love it!!!!!! "Eat Cake", what else is there to say? LOL




These sweet packages of wonderful soap just made me happy! The one in the little cloth bag, comes with instruction on how to use the bag for a sweet little craft. This one make a strawberry! This is Elea's blog address: http://www.nostalgia.typepad.com/









This fun little box of Christmas goodies was just $10.00! And worth every penny, I really love these kinds of things! I wonder what I will make ? Check out Mary's blog: http://sweetpeasandsnapshots.typepad.com/




A fun little felt FALL banner:







And of course I had to buy something from a great antique dealer down in Mesa:





And what else but a MINT colorful vintage dishtowel! Oh Boy!!!!! And a sweet Durkee's spice tin, that is still full, I might add....














This was so much fun! I hope they all come back next year, and maybe even more great artists will join the fun! Thanks for stoppin' by !

Wow, what a delish day you had. I remember that antique store from when I live in PHX... So miss it down there. Great dish towel find.

Off to check out some of your friends blogs. You are too cute taking your picture with each you visit.
