A Dream Come True!

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 me it was like meeting a rock star!! :-D
Christie has a BLOG now, too!! Be sure to go 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:

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!!


  1. Oh! How fun to meet your rock star. :) She does such lovely work! Oh, and your mantle is gorgeous. Might be my favorite spot in your house! Have a lovely trip and I hope you will come back feeling refreshed and ready to dance through Spring. :) Blessings, Debra
