Weekend with Rachel Ashwell at The Prairie


This past weekend I was honored to be at
"How it all Began" workshop held at 
The Prairie in Round Top, Texas. 
I can sum up those few days in one word - WOW...


Although the workshop focused on Rachel's  newest book release, 
The World of Shabby Chic
we all gained insight of her journey far beyond any book pages.

I would like to share with you what I saw through my eyes...


Grace. Style. Beauty.


Nature. Color. Timeless


Elegance.Charm.Inviting


Talented.Soulful.Radiant


Details.Special.Comfort


Aqua.Whimsy.Quirky


Breezes.Country.Lace


Shiplap.White.Sparkle


Layers.Subtle.Gold


Farm.Faded.Relaxing


 Our choices for Saturday day afternoon were:
                         a) Shopping in Round Top
                         b) Photo shoot for Rachel's
    (That was a no brainer for me...)


A small group of us followed Rachel and Sarah around and tried our best to be flies on the wall.
(Not so easy for women who like to talk...)







Final photo of the bedding...
Rachel's attention to small details gave it the,
 "I want to live there," look.

We moved out to the "wash" line. This took awhile to get the best shot, but again, 
Rachel has a clever eye so it all pulls together.


My photo of what the final shot ended up as... Sarah will tweak hers to perfection.


Yes, even Rachel has a building full of her finds! 
These treasures are waiting to make their way to L.A.

                           
I was truly inspired by Rachel's journey.
 She is a beautiful person inside and out.


Thank you Rachel for a weekend that I will not forget!


Until we meet again!

You were a lucky girl to get to go. I'm excited to be taking my mother there this weekend. It's almost become a tradition to do this. Happy Mother's Day weekend my friend.

I would have liked a longer power reserve, or an indicator to warn the rolex replica uk when the reserve is almost depleted. But provided the wearer is relatively active or keeps the watch on a winder, this shouldnt pose much of a problem. Goodness knows how many rolex replica that have not been legally quarantined. Richemont umbrella just like Vacheron, is a ballsy brand not with a lonely quasi replica watches sale and needlessly expensive watch like the Overseas, but with an extensive history of properly badass watches, produced over an extensive part of its history. Ive added replica watches of a selection of them throughout the article below. Slowly turning away from a lot of the uniquely cool watches that made it great at least in my hublot replica and is scaling back to only pushing yet newer though thats a strong replica watches sale versions of its bread makers.
