If this is your first visit today, be sure to begin your partying at my The French-Inspired Satellite Party post and then return here to this post for more! Leave one comment at each party post to be entered into the drawing, up until November 5 when the party ends!

I am so glad you are having a good time mingling, and oh! what treats you have brought to share! Such lovely guests you are! We are still have a few teeny tiny technical difficulties with our exclusive party peek (so much for our blog party innovation! LOL!). BUT, have no fear, we did manage to get a few glimpses into The Blissful before we lost connection. We’ll bring you more as we have it! Let’s take a look all the way over in Canton, Ohio at The Blissful!

Satellite Party Take Two

Oh, could you just move right in? I love it! Everything looks so festive! And there is SO MUCH to look at! I’d be spinning in circles touching and gazing at each delight (don’t forget, she is opening the online store in January so we can all partake of the goodness!) Do enjoy your peek, leave another comment to be entered again into the drawing, and come back again later for Satellite Party Take Three! Well be here all weekend! And hopefully at some point we will have Abby herself, if she doesn’t collapse from exhaustion first! She is a whirlwind, that girl!

Don’t forget to return for the party that never ends (click HERE) … you’ve gotta love that!

    It all looks divine! Thank you so much ladies for sharing it with us.


  2. Julie

    WOW!! A person could create some serious debt in that place. But secretly, it might be worth it.

    I posted your party on my side bar so that it’s up all weekend, if that’s ok.

    Thanks again for doing this and for including little ol’ me.


  51. Sophiehoneysuckle

    Oh Melissa!!!! That is so my kind of shop-I want to fly right over (maybe not fly-sail lol!!) and start spending!! Maybe it’s just as well I can’t!! What a fab idea for a post!!

  52. Judy

    Oh, I love these pictures…would LOVE to have my own private party in that store!

  53. Marsha

    Is that a wreath made of Christmas balls on the right-hand side of the first picture? I’m more than 400 miles from Canton, but that wreath makes it look totally worth the drive!

  54. Susan Bartlett

    What a great idea…an online party!! I was lucky enough to visit Abbey and her shop last week. I also have a shop and we compared notes…what a wonderful place, and Abbey is so sweet!!

  55. Sharon Goemaere

    Oh how lovely!Where does one begin to look?So much beauty all in one place!thanks so much for sharing!
    Sharon :-)

  56. the feathered nest

    Could she move her shop to Atlanta? I could spend all day looking around and probably spend way too many pennies! So much eye-candy!


  57. Michelle

    What a fun party! Yes, I could live there :)

  58. Cecilia

    Oh gosh, that is just the perfect store for me. I am sad that it is so far away. I love unique, high quality knick knacks. I don’t clutter my house up with tons of them either. So each item that I do use has to be truely unique, and special. Heaven is all that I can say!

  59. karla nathan

    What a pretty store! I loved the just right combo of sparkle and aged neutrals!

  60. My Melange

    Speaking of *internet* problems…I was the victim yesterday, so I am making it over today. Love, love love the store. I’ll just bring a truck and haul the whole store away :)

  61. Lisa

    Oh Melissa, look at all of your comments. How cool! Love your pictures of this and your last post. Simply marvelous! Love it all and wish I could pop into that wonderful shop. Thanks for the yummy treats too, they were delish! Your blog is such great eye candy. You never disappoint. Keep up the good work!


  62. Melissa

    Just found your site through Gracious Hospitality. I love the photos of your store!
    As a hostess gift, I would bring a candle or set of candles hand painted by me, in the colors of the hostesses home, or a tea basket filled with a tea lovely cream colored for one pot and an assortment of black, green and herbal teas with a tin of cookies.
    Hosting parties is hard work and a gracious hostess who opens her home to others, should be doted on.

  63. Nancy

    Oh how I wish I could be there in person! Your shop is absolutely wonderful, and I think I would have to get lost in it!

  64. Brenda Eason

    I would shop all day. I still don’t think I could see it all. Thanks for shopping spree.

  65. Teresa

    I love The Blissful…and need to order some bangle bracelets I saw there. I’m originally an Ohio girl…and hope to visit when I go home for the holidays. Can’t wait ’til January when the shop goes online.

  66. Counting Your Blessings

    Do you think I could get The Blissful gals to bring some of that wonderful stuff over and create my perfect holiday house?! =0 wow!! Blessings… Polly

  67. sherry

    I would need days and days and days to be able to see everything, touch everything and just enjoy being surrounded by so much beauty!

  68. Pam Webb

    Wow–I am in love at first sight with that site!! I just sat there touching the screen—couldn’t a person go into major debt there????

    Thanks for the 2nd part of the party! This is too much fun. And I’m in my pj’s!!! That’s just another perk to this party!

  69. Susan Ericson

    Okay,Melissa, now that I have read through and seen all the pictures, I’m thinking that there may be a road trip in the future. This is a fabulous shop. I’m taking out the map. Wonderful party. Susan

  70. katiedid

    I am awed, stunned, delerious with delight! What a wonderful, magical perfect Christmas shop! I want to live here.

  71. Sharon

    I live a world away from Canton but would just love to browse through all those treasures.

  72. Karen

    Oh boy, I could spend some major money there. Wish I were close.

  73. Terri

    I wish I was closer, too! I was directed here by Back Porch Musings!

  74. Sue
