Mini Design Flea Wrap-Up

What a day, friends!

We provided the goods...

...Whole Foods provided the refreshments...

...a local reporter provided the press...

...and YOU, with every single LLH Designs purchase...

...provided the funds...

...for a $600 "Mini Home Makeover" in the Third Ward. Prince and Sheila (co-founders of The Forge) will be SO surprised! I can't wait to tell them...and can't wait to serve as their decorator!

AND...thanks to all the extra dollars you gave, we are sending THREE of Houston's own inner city children to an amazing summer camp in Missouri (with The Forge). My goal was one, and now we're sending THREE! Thank you to an especially generous donor. I love your heart!

{If you missed the sale and would like to give, email me.}

At the end of the day, there is lots to celebrate. Though my body is tired, my house is still a mess and my cell phone was stolen (by the one and only one suspicious shopper), it was worth every single sacrifice. I didn't gain a thing in terms of dollars, but I gained the things that really matter:

FRIENDSHIP with two women I adore. Just when I wondered why in the world I'm blogging at all, I meet these two amazingly talented ladies who've become real-life friends. Tricia and Holly, you are a gift to me!

And then there's the JOY of knowing that people went home with fabulous, well-priced "finds." One kind shopper and blog reader sent me this as a thank you this morning:

A photograph of her precious little one holding the umbrella she purchased at the Mini Design Flea. You  made my day, sweet reader!

So to all the ladies and a few good men who braved the heat...to all of my "regulars" and to my brand new readers (loved meeting you in person!)...to the high school friends and even a middle school friend... 

Big hugs to you today!
