Petit Flea Market… The Photographs.

May 24, 2010 | Uncategorized | 24 comments

It’s a good thing that pictures speak a thousand words… cause I am plum tuckered out… or should I say…
Je suis trés, trés fatigué!!!!
I know the rest of the world is watching LOST right now but hubby works late and we watch it on Hulu since we don’t do the T.V. thang. But tonight, waiting is a drag! I want to know!!!
But, here goes… a couple thousand words… my feet are propped up.
Gotta recoup fast.
Got a garden to tend.
What I did for four days straight.
I’ve never whipped so many egg whites… but I took such pleasure in seeing so many people enjoy a macaron for the first time in their lives.
Gramma and Baby J… right before the barn doors opened.
Well, what do you think? Is it what you expected?
So much creativity from Jen, Joy, Victoria and Anne. Just lovely!
Jen in her vintage gown and new pixie cut. I love this photo.
And me in my gown and cowboy boots.
Yes, the dress is purple but after two more bottles of black it came out a nice dark purple…
trés aubergine.
The hay bedroom complete with chandelier (still available), trumeau and Scottish linens.
Angela -n- Anne. We seem to have this inability to take a normal photograph. We get giddy when we are around each other. Sophomoric, I know.
Her dress was SO AWESOME!!!!! She was regal. Queen of the farm!
Ever seen a French Patisserie in a horse barn?
How about those macaron towers???? So festive!
Coffee filter dress á la Antoinette!
Wrappings for Pastries.
Oh, Elizabeth! You are so lovely! Wait ’til I show you my navy blue one!
This shopper knew the drill. You’ve got to wear boots on the farm.
Garden fresh salad for lunch, anyone???
And a macaron for desert!
y new girlfriend Mrs. B. came the farthest… St. Louis!!!
Reine de Saba tarte anyone??
This is my most favorite pic… it does speak a thousand words. Parisian elegance, Lauderée style… at Nada Farm.
See you at the next Petit Flea Market!!!!
Any of my “leftovers” will be posted ON SALE to the Parisienne Farmhouse soon!!!

    That looks like it was a fantastic day!!! Totally amazing presentation of everything there. I wish I could have gone. Your macaron’s look to die for. I have booked a trip to Paris in September and can’t wait to try macaron’s there.
    You look beautiful Ange, and your dress is perfect,
    All the best,

    a fabulous barn affair.

    Why do you have to live on the other side of the world! Mind you there is a girl here in my little town who has set up vintage clothing fairs – I might go along to the next one but it is only clothing as far as I know and a display of aprons but no macaroons I’m afraid.
    Your dress turned out beautiful. I know what hard work setting up displays is, you want everything to look just right. Everything looks so elegant and I’m sure the compliments will keep on flowing for weeks!

  6. Semi Expat

    What amazing macs – you are so clever.. and what a fantastique day it looked like too! x

  7. Privet and Holly

    All of you did such an AMAZING job of making it all so magical when we walked in the door! And even the next day, it was as if pixies had rearranged the whole thing and made it new and special, again. I just posted my first round of pics, so come and have a look through my lens. Different from Anne Marie’s…and yours…another perspective. Your images are gorgeous, by the way! Love your blog, by the way! xx P&H {Suzanne}

    I have always wanted to host an event like this, you lucky (exhausted) girls!!

    Loved the Patisserie!

  13. Counting Your Blessings

    Oh it was the BEST! I loved everything and wanted to buy everything. Hope you had some great sales.

    Your photos are amazing! Way better than mine. I think I was having too much fun looking around and talking with everyone. =)

    It was such a joy to meet you and I’m so grateful for all your hard work. Our area is starving for this! I’m excited to be part of the Fall show with everyone.

    Hope you have some time to relax and rest. Blessings… Polly

    it was so nice meeting you at the sale. you all did an amazing job. it looked so beautiful. i am now a lover of macaron. yum, yum, yum.

  16. Mrs. B.

    Miss Angela – it was such a pleasure to meet you in person! Never would I have thought that my little blog would have led me to make friends that I would have such a natural affinity with. Like you said, blogs can be the “window to the soul.”
    So happy to have gone to the sale and gotten a taste of your macarons…my goodness, they were heavenly. Belgian chocolate and lavendar are my favorites.
    (Your family is gorgeous. My little sister could not stop comenting on how beautiful your boy is.)
    ‘Til we meet again!

  17. High Heeled Life

    awesome photography… I so hope to make their next year!!! Happy gardening!

  18. Mrs. B.

    …also, in our cute little photo, I look like I may have enjoyed your macarons a bit too much. if you catch my drift?

  19. Parisienne Farmgirl

    Mrs. B – I was feeling the same way after looking at my flabby, “Hi Betty” arms in my purple dress shots – no time to lift those weights when you’re getting ready for a farm sale!! YIKES!

  20. TheEccentricLady

    I love how the dress looks! I am secreatly glad it stayed purple ;)Wish I could have been there it looks wonderful.

  21. Molly @ Star Cottage

    Many Blessings,

  22. Angie
