I went to the Roseville Antique Market last Sunday and was blessed to meet the very lovely and talented Christie Repasy!! I have been a HUGE fan of hers for over 10 years...she's been featured on HGTV and in Romantic Homes Magazine. Steve loves her work just as much as I do and over the years has purchased her paintings as anniversary and birthday gifts for me.
Christie is so very sweet and kind...especially as I was falling all over myself telling her how much I loved her work..to me it was like meeting a rock star!! :-D
Christie has a BLOG now, too!! Be sure to go visit..it is so beautiful!
Christie came up from Southern California with her sweet Sister-in-love, Rita. Steve and I had a lovely chat with her, too. But alas, forgot to take pictures of her and her wonderful jewelry. I bought a necklace from her that I'll have to show you later..(forgot to take a pic of it at the moment). Rita also has a BLOG and you can view her jewelry and altered bottles there...
I shall leave you with some of Christie's art that we have in our home:
In the corner of the Master Bedroom
A close up..
In the kitchen, bottom shelf, behind the tiny teacup..
Above the mirror in the family room..
Above the mantle in the sitting room, and one on the left propped up in front of the mirror..
Her paintings are so beautiful~so serene and calming. They add romantic loveliness to a home! ;-)
I'm so grateful (and fortunate) that I have such a romantic husband that appreciates these paintings as much as I do....speaking of my sweet husband, I have taken all the sweet affirmations off the mirror (they were beginning to curl from the steam in the shower!) and have stored them in my 'Beloved' box.
I was so encouraged by your comments. I am so glad my previous post helped some of you, and you helped me feel not so alone in all of this. It has still been a battle every day to 'take every thought captive', but I'm working on it.
I am going out of town for a few days~Steve will be holding down the fort while I'm away. I'll check in as soon as I get back! Have a wonderful week and be sure to tell Christie I said 'hi' when you visit!!
