Welcome to Tidbits and Tassels... an art retreat hosted by Chantal Johnson at her beautiful home in Texas on Saturday, August 29th.
From the moment we drove up to her beautiful home, everywhere we looked, we were engulfed with welcoming beauty.
It was much, much more...in every delightful way possible!
When someone says "It's all in the details", believe them as this statement is so true. Chantal thought of every little detail which made our day so dreamy.
My breath was taken away upon my entry into this beautiful home filled with her compassion for art...art that she creates!
I knew this day would be a wonderful day of learning and meeting like-minded women. Just the thought of creating with them brought a smile to my face and I instantly felt at home.
From details of the gorgeous table centerpieces...
To the scrumptious food available buffet style...
To the goody bags that she personalized with our initial and a beautiful tassel...one of which we were going to learn how to make!
Everything was absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking!
Speaking of breathtaking, let's walk outside shall we? I want to give you a peek into my next post. I'll be sharing with you where we created. Here's a sneak peek...
Isn't her pool just to die for? We didn't create out there though, we created out here...
Under the patio with the cool Texas breeze. It was the most beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky and low (very low) humidity.
See those beautiful french doors in the background? Well, they open up into Chantal's beautiful studio. It's like something out of a magazine I tell ya! I tried to capture all of the beauty but I don't think even my photos will do it justice.
We'll see in my next post and I'll let you be the judge of that.
Thank you for stopping in to peek at my creative weekend with the Texas Bellas.
I have much more eye candy ahead if you're interested as I will take you inside her studio in my next post!!! Be sure to come back as you wouldn't want to miss this!!!
Then after that, I'll show you all of the little details of our creative day, and the last post will be about the 'special little moments' that made Sarah and I's trip to Texas unforgettable. So stay tuned for all of the scoop! ;)
