A Parcel Sparkle Good Time!
Parcel Trip: The Girls!This past weekend was filled a huge artful adventure from beginning to end, all day, everyday from Thursday to Sunday, everywhere I went, I was being filled with inspiration, magic and joy.
Parcel Trip! some of us!To start up things, The Tea Party Girls hosted another adventure, this time, a trip to Montclair, NJ to visit some stores and shop around the fab: PARCEL, located on Bloomfield Ave., in Montclair, NJ.

I lived in Montclair till I was 4 or 5 years old, always visiting the shopping on both sides of town with my Mom, I still do today. So taking a trip to town, meeting with friends and shopping at Parcel, was an instant pleasure.

Everything inside the store is just too cute and so inspirational, as soon as you walk in, you want to start creating and you can never leave with just one thing. But I warn you, bring 4 quarters for the car meters, you could be there a while. I mean we blinked and 4pm became 6:30pm instantly, I felt like I Dream of Jeannie, blink/nodding my head for instant magic, lol!Glittered Masks! At Parcel!Speaking of magic, look at this enchanting Masquerade mask, the glitter did it for me, I loved it so much I had to try it on, but I think it was rather small, LOL, don't you? I want to make a large size for my face, LOL! I'll keep the smaller ones for making assemblages, and artwork.Me and the Mask!Notice the cupcake chic bunnies on my red hoodie, I had to wear it for Easter time, plus its one of my fave hoodies ever and makes me believe I am going to a Bunny Carnival every time I wear it, well actually it adds some sunshine to my day. LOL!Inside Parcel 5!These masks sit on the Magician Shelf along side the Velvety top hat boxs, small trinket boxes shaped like top hats, just adorable and amazing, just like my fave Queen Bee Marlene, she is just the best, I love this picture of her and I, she is just soooo magical!Parcel Trip: Me and Marlene!Parcel Trip: Marlene!Now what can be better then art, well candy, and Parcel carries the sweetest confections which makes shopping even better, You work off a sweat and then replenish with some tasty treats look at this candyland section:Inside Parcel 3!Now look at this Cupcake Chic Easter Themed Shelf: Inside Parcel 2!"GOT RIBBON?"Inside Parcel 4!One of my fave shelves at Parcel, Its Circus/Carnival related and filled with all the goodies I love to search and buy! After a few hours of laughter and artful inspiration we all headed to dinner or home to look at all our goodies and start creating something with them.Inside Parcel!
The Parcel Adventure included: Ralene, Marlene, Zandra, Geralyn, My Mom Joan and Me! Each of these gals is wonderful and full of spirit, all magical, talented and a pleasure to know and be around! Thanks Girls for a wonderful time!
