Magnolia Pearl ... Marburger 2010

Can you imagine a better place other than Magnolia Pearl to play dress-ups with your girlfriends? ... and have Robin Brown play along with you? Me either ... come on, you can play too!

Could you not just dive into this pile of Magnolia madness? Swimming thru a sea of bloomers ... oh lord, my love for bloomers ...
The most creative displays litter the entire tent ... mannequins come alive formed from various pieces of rusty wire, metal and scrap ... dripping with the signature antique lace ... amazing!

And our playmates today? The Gypsy Princess, Cori {Beth's daughter} and all of the Magnolia girls themselves ... check out Cori's smile ... it did not leave her face the entire time, I believe she actually said her face hurt from smiling so much that day. What a great ache to have ...

The dress was a stunner .... created from many different pieces of colored crochet ... a real stand-out amongst all the muted neutral tones ... the pretty redhead is Polly from The French Cupboard {more about her later}
This is my favorite photo of Cori and Robin ... although I would like to see them holding hands and strolling thru a field of wildflowers ... perfect magazine shoot?

One other thing Robin dishes out besides wonderful clothing ... wonderful hugs!! ... this gal will wrap you up in her warm affection...And her husband, John, is always around to lend a helping hand ...

Even Cori's Mom couldn't resist getting in on the action ... it is contagious!! Very nice Beth!I did manage to try on one thing .. a scrumptious silk jacket in the prettiest shade of greyish blue ... getting one of those Magnolia squeezes ... wanna know what's running thru my mind? ... "God, please, please let a smidgen of this woman's talent rub off on me ... I promise to be really, really good" ... seriously, see how hard I'm pressing my cheek to hers trying to absorb some of her magic?!

For more behind the scenes and workings of Magnolia Pearl, take a look at Robin's blog, here.
Hope you had fun hanging out and playing dress-ups ... speaking of dress-ups, next post I'll have prom pictures from The Junk Gypsies infamous party!!

Happy Friday girls!
