E is for....

Engelbreit!  As in THE MARY ENGELBREIT!!!!  This picture was taken in 2004 of her and I.  She used to have the most charming little shop in the Galleria Mall in St. Louis.  It had a black and white checkered floor.  And it was FILLED to the rim with Mary loveliness.  Sadly, she made the decision to close the store.  I went into deep depression.  Well, not really, but I sure was sad!  Anyway, she was at her darling, quaint, little store doing a meet and greet and I forced encouraged my friends to come along with me.  I have something Mary in every single room of my house.  I am not kidding.  I adore her.  I am a Mary Junkie and proud of it!!!  She makes me smile.  And smiles are so very good.

Oh, how wonderful to meet Mary and capture it on film!!! I, too was in her store in the Galleria. I loved it! I went back a 2nd time and to my disappointment it was closed :( She has such a charming way of drawing children. She makes me smile, too! Happy "E" day!

Oh wow...what a treat to meet Mary.
I like her, too.
My daughter and I would play with the paper dolls that came along inside her Home Companion magazine when it was in circulation. I miss that magazine:(
