This is a cautionary tale of what happens when a girl from Minnesota visits her mom in Idaho on the same weekend of The Farm Chicks show in nearby Washington. I warn you, this post isn't for the faint of heart. Once Mom established that she could and would in fact drive any and all bulky purchases to North Dakota so that we could pick them up to take back to Minneapolis....well, understandably, it was "Game On" from that point forward. This bit of news led to the procurement of a chair, old suitcases, a stool, a framed chalk board, a huge pillow, a doll house, a basket....you get the idea. Everything else that could be squeezed, rammed, folded, pushed, prodded, or otherwise placed somewhere on my person or baggage came back with me on the plane...yah, it was pure, unadulterated goodness. Everyone should have a weekend like that. Here are a few pictures of Evy, me, and my mom. Steve stayed a safe distance back in Minnesota....really, it was better that way ; )
My mom brought her Farm Chicks cookbook to get signed, as you'll see below. This is us with our excited faces on. We were definitely excited.
We had so much fun in the Duchess booth. This is where I got my fun suitcases.
Evy posing with her new doll house from Unexpected Necessities. We'll have fun decorating it.
The Barn House Boys had such a great display - I wish I could have gotten more home with me - good thing I didn't live closer or I would have had to make an emergency trip to a U-Haul store to rent a trailer.
My new chair from Gladys at JuneBug Furniture Designs. I could have bought out their whole booth. Below is the back of the chair.
Look at those cute buttons!
Just a few of the fun things I got - this is at my mom's where they still sit until July 4th weekend! The pillow on the chair was also from JuneBug and is made from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic fabric. JuneBug also made the cute ruffled burlap bag hanging from the chair.
A few of the other fun things I got - pictures, books, lotion, a paper flower....who doesn't need a sparkly paper flower?
Mom and Evy with Serena and Teri from The Farm Chicks.
Yep, a great weekend.
** Also wanted to say hi to Cathy from Red Wing, MN who I saw at Haupt Antiek Market way back in January. She recognized me from my blog - I was shocked. Hope you are well Cathy!!
