Vintage Barn Sale ’09

If there is a universal rule as to how many pictures you can have in a post, I’m quite certain that I’m going to break it {again} ~ but I just can’t help myself.

charmed!I love this picture taken by Christina.  She was giving me some tips for my camera.  This was taken with my camera and her lens.

A fun twist on the weekend was joining forces {somewhat} with long-time friends, Trisha & Sarah of Wild Whimsy.  There were 7 of us who camped together Friday night in one trailer and it was wonderful to always have someone to help me out when I needed a hand…especially at the end when they were packed up WAY before me.
