creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

The perfect Day!

Yesterday’s sale at The Vintage Barn in Rathdrum, Idaho was grand!

It was a beautiful, HOT sunny day with a perfect assortment of vendors.  With live music and the scent of grilled hamburgers and hot dogs wafting in the air, the senses were made complete with the sounds of excited {women’s} voices and much laughter!

The day was perfect, as usual!

I’m mostly going to show a variety of pictures.  Most of the first ones are from my booth.  Later in the afternoon I was able to walk around with Miss A and I found myself taking a few random shots of things that made me smile!

Two sillies!

This girl {Becky} always makes me smile!…and she, along with her girl, Holly, come up with the most fabulous, glittery creations.  I read this post this week about their shop that just made me smile!

This is one of the first things that I made.  It manages to go to every show with me.  I may just retire it and keep it…I really love it!

    I told my Hunny that we need to move to the northeast so I can play with all of that junk and go to the shows and meet you creative girls!!!

    The mailman brought my package from you yesterday and I LOVE my FarmGirl tote!!! Every little detail! The sweet flower..the tag..the burlap and bandana material oh just everything!!! I loved the way you wrapped it and all of the sweet little stamps on the envelope…love me some birdies so I felt like you stamped ’em just for me!! I took it to a Midsummer Festival and had to co-ordinate my outfit to match!!! Shoot I shoulda gotten a photo of me!! Too busy taking ’em of everyone else!! Everyone kept looking at it but were too shy to ask me where I got it from I guess. 🙂
    Anywy I am thrilled with it!!!
