Chatterbox Designs

To get the full experience of this post, be sure to click the images to enlarge!

Sunday we hit up
a wonderful in home craft fair. Beautifully decorated the ambiance was amazingly posh. Inflected with the true spirit of Christmas there was a basket at the door for Cancer donations.

The first table of jewelry was too busy to approach. So we followed the trail of treasures, beautiful tree ornaments that could double as pendants, smelly soaps, creams, yummy amalgamation of spices for dips, chocolate, candy, fluffy scarves, complimentary coffee and treats, everything you could imagine at a top notch craft fair. What impressed me most were Wendy and Elaine's jewelry pieces from Chatterbox designs. They had quite a beautiful array of necklaces, bracelets, earring, seeming quite the allure to the many shoppers milling the home.
I spoke with Elaine about the handmade pieces as Pepper was quite taken with her pendant, wondering if she could have one similar commissioned. I spied a purple necklace that I loved, it matched perfectly with the blouse I was wearing!
More Chatterbox designs. Love the name of this company too! That purple necklace is soon to be my Christmas present, thanks to my kids! Here's a sneak preview....this photo doesn't do it justice. It's much prettier and more purple in person! The beads that look orange (must be the way the light hit it) are actually purple.

As we ambled around my eyes queued in on these funky style mugs.
I'm assuming the same artist set up this sweet little black and white vignette, I particularly loved the small black tree. The creator of these dishes didn't seem available. I hope they don't mind that I put these pieces on my blog.
Of course there many lovely things to appeal to every taste and decor.
Everything was spectacularly staged, color coordinated, and neatly displayed. It really was a fantastic atmosphere to start your Christmas shopping.
Unfortunately it's the last year for this event. I can't even begin to imagine the work it took to facilitate a project of this magnitude. One that takes up the majority of your house, including the kitchen. Kudos to the people running it. I thoroughly enjoyed the energy and love put into this creative endeavor!

My girls and I hit up a few Holiday fairs and they were just so terrible. No imagination or creativity.
