A day at Mon Petit Chateau

I spent today at an event at Mon Petit Chateau in Chula Vista, CA. The theme was pre-Mother’s Day appreciation with vendors of all sorts — from tupperware to NuSkin to Jamberry to Wine at Home to me, your humble henna and glitter artist.

This was the first time I’d been to Mon Petit Chateau. I suppose that without kids and living in Lemon Grove, I really didn’t have a reason to visit… but I am sure glad I discovered this little gem!  If I had kids, I’d be there as often as possible!

The entrance houses an expresso bar and pastry shop.

In addition to enjoying the surroundings, I got to draw fun, sparkly things as well!

Although it was a gray and drizzly day, the spirits inside were bright and full of joy… and expresso…

I may have to borrow some children so I can go back!
