Visit From A Friend and A Sneak Peek

If you've been following along, you know that the girls here at Elizabeth & Co. host occasional vintage tag sales. Our next sale was slated for September, but the girls went into a painting frenzy and our little house started overflowing with vintage goodness. So there was only one thing to do - have a one day summer sale! And yes, it's coming up this Saturday from 9am to 3pm. We've been working like crazy to get everything ready. And today I got to share our little house with a very special friend! Recognize the cute girl behind the camera?






Yes, that's none other than the sweet and talented Cassie from Primitive & Proper!





I've said it before, this girl is the real deal! Cassie has been my mentor since day one. I was studying her website even before she had a blog. I took notes (yes, literally!) and learned so much about painting furniture from her. She generously shares her talent and expertise. And she is always supportive and encouraging. I've been lucky enough to get to know her and I'm thrilled that we have become friends!





After a tour of the house and some wonderful feedback from Cassie, we headed out to lunch. My daughter Megan joined us (yes, she's back from Kentucky!). It was just such a treat to spend some time relaxing and chatting with two of my very favorite people. Poor Cassie, I think I asked her about a million questions. It was just a lovely day! Thanks so much for spending time with us Cassie!






And yes, our local friends have been asking for a sneak peek at our sale. So for the rest of the week, I'll be sharing a few photos each day. Here goes...




































Hope you can join us at Elizabeth & Co. this Saturday, July 23rd from 9am to 3pm at 438 East Main Street in Westminster, MD!

If I lived closer I would love to come! You have done a beautiful job. Everything is lovely. I adore your green dresser....such a fun and happy color! I saw that on Cassie's blog today. Cassie's blog was the first one I discovered and she is a doll and so helpful, positive and encouraging, as well as being very talented. Good luck on Saturday Elizabeth! Your daughter is beautiful!
