Let me preface this post by saying it was hot, it was raining and the camera put 10lbs on my face. OK with that said...Whenever I have ever seen someone famous I have NEVER EVER bothered them. Well, Don and I were at Brimfield today having fun and pretending that it was not raining. I look up and who is walking towards me? YES!!!! RACHEL ASHWELL!!!!!!!!!! So I say" Excuse me, can I just say hello?" You are Rachel Ashwell right?" (Don said he heard me say "Hey aren't you going to say hello?".) He is deaf in one ear. Anyway she said "Yes I am and this is my friend Amy (I think that was her name). I told her how much I loved her, her style and how I have all of her books and how I wanted a donkey (just kidding) and was talking VERY fast because I thought I was being rude and didn't want to take up too much of her time. THEN...I blurted out " can I have a picture "?and she said "of course". She was sooooooo gracious and polite and sooo pretty! I think I just scared her into taking a picture with me but she did and I AM SO EXCITED to have met someone that has been such a huge inspiration to me. I love her story of how and why she started Shabby Chic and have followed her through her blog, tapes, and books. I always said I would love to meet her. Then I do and don't even talk to her. I don't know what happened to me. Its like someone body snatched me.
THANK YOU RACHEL!!!!!YOU HAVE MADE MY YEAR!!!!
Wait to you see who else I met in the next post! Oh what a day I had:)
'Till next time....
