The Rosette Swap Reveal!!!


Hello My SpaRkLy Friends!

Do you know what Wednesday was???

Well, besides being the most embarrassing day of my life, it was the

Rosette Swap Reveal!!!

So WHY you may ask was this day a day of high level embarrassment
Tobi??

Well my sparkly friends, here's the lowdown...

I entered the 
Rosette swap
and 
Guess who
sent me my
Rosette???

JILL-

yes-

  Gypsy Brocante herself..

QUEEN of the Rosettes!!!!

Boy was I blessed!!!

I ripped into my package like a kid at Christmas to find a
BIG PINK GYPSY ROSETTE
pinned on a
GYPSY 
VINTAGE
PINK
TIE DyED
Slip DRESS!!!

"OHBOY OHBOY OHBOY!"

I exclaimed as my daughter
Ashley
came running in to see what the commotion was all about.

"Oh my gosh MOM, that is beautiful"! 

she said as she gently plied it out of my clenched fingers.

"Of COURSE it's Beautiful...
It's a GYPSY SLIP DRESS 
like in her shop!!!!

"Mom- LET GO!  I just want to see it I won't hurt it!"

"OK, I said as I let go of my prize still in disbelief that
my swap partner was 
GYPSY JILL
who sent me one of her 
FAMOUS
Slip Dresses!!

"Try it on" 
I said as I pulled out my iphone.

"I need to take pictures for my post"

So we did a mini photo shoot, and I wrote a killer post all about my beautiful
 Rosette Gypsy Slip Dress
and
tonight when I went to post it
IT WAS GONE!
Now normally that wouldn't be so bad, I would just re write it
except for 
one BIG problema-
Um.....
The slip part is in 
AUSTRIA
with my daughter
ASHLEY.
You know, 
the one I have been crying over for the past week?

So now all I have to show everyone is

my
Beautiful
Gypsy
ROSETTE.

So I did another photo shoot
but 
this time 
I used the
PIXIES.


They have all been fighting over it anyway,
So here it is in all of it's
ROSETTE GLORY!!!

Just look at the detail!!!


So a HUGE 
Thank you
to Beautiful Jill!!!

and

Please be sure to visit all of our lovely ladies today  at 
for 
Pink Saturday

And have yourself a very sparkly, blessed weekend!

  6. Wow! I had to go check out her slip dresses on her site--I can see why you and your daughter were so excited! I'm happy for you. I'll have to read back to see what your daughter is doing in Austria!

  7. Absolutely beautiful...and I so empathize with you. My own daughter is moving away in a couple of weeks, too....though not as far as Austria. She'll be a 10 hour drive away. Boohoo. I'm trying to be strong. Maybe we can cry on each others' shoulders!
