Saturday I had the amazing opportunity of meeting Miss Mustard Seed.
She was doing a book signing at SuzAnna's Antiques in Raleigh, NC & I wasn't missing it no matter what!
My awesome husband accompanied me on the 2.5 hour drive & even chatted Marian up about farming cotton!
MMS is the reason I started my business. I have followed her blog for years & even tried a few of her DIYs like her German glass glitter letters & ornaments. She is a constant inspiration & her words of wisdom & truth gave me the push I needed to open Raised In Cotton Interiors.
Marian is a real genuine person.
Her accent is adorable!
And that new short haircut is totally her!
My husband actually asked me when I was going to cut mine like that. What?
He was as smitten with her as I was.
She wasn't in a rush as she signed our books.
She talked with us. Asked us questions.
It's what I love most about her.
She is a real person. Just like you & I.
I could sit & talk to her for hours.
I am so thankful she shared her talents with so many of us through her blog, paint & book!
If you get the chance to attend a book signing please do!
You won't be disappointed!
I look horrible in this picture mainly because I was so nervous.
I mean I'm standing next to Miss Mustard Seed!
She said to me, "Anything is possible."
She is so right!
What a great day it was!
I am seriously still pinching myself & re-reading what she wrote to me in my copy of her book.
What an honor to meet someone like her....
