ya, I know that my awning sags a bit – it’s kind of a pet peeve of mine!

blogging buddies!

The show was crazy with bloggers – here are just a few. It was so fun to have so many people recognize me by my blog name. – Liz thought it a bit creepy that ‘strangers’ seemed to know her.

We had a fun and exhausting day, but I’m so very ready to hit it again tomorrow.  Teri and Serena (the Farm Chicks) have done an incredible job of establishing a very organized and effective show.  It was wonderful to see them walk around visiting with their vendors the hour before the show began.  That to me is a sign of ‘having your act together’. 

notable note: I wasn’t walking around the hour prior to the show opening.chickie charm

  2. Look at your gorgeous booth!, wish I was there so I could get a closer look at what is hanging on on the back wall, They look very interesting and like something I would love to hang up in my house – will any of them be for sale in your shop one day??

    • I loved having you there, Sarah. What fun!!! As you can imagine, I was pretty much on my own today. Liz flitted and fluttered around all dayin her beautiful new ‘yellow’ dress, making friends with everyone in the show. She is quite a creature! – seems to make everyone smile!
