In our shop, we like to give inspiration by using materials that are readily found at farmers markets, fruit stands, along the road, from your yard and even the hubby's scrap pile. My friend Lynette (garden girl) made the wire nest from old baling wire, layered some moss in the bottom, cut several branches from white Birch tree and then put my fairy tail and heirloom squash in..Waa Laa..instant center piece for any island, table, outdoor bench, whatever your little hearts desire!
Wait till you see the hops..they only cost a case of beer (Busch, not the good stuff!)

All that we can say is WOW! This was one of the best shows we've ever participated in. We love this world, this magical, wonderful, antique lovin' world...what an honor it has been to be in the company of such fabulous, creative, and just down-right NICE women and artisans!
The wonderful customers waited 1-1/2 hrs, in the rain, and some driving 200-400 miles just to attend. WOW! Like martha from http://www.vintagetrifles.blogspot.com/, she won the award for best shopping cart!
These are our booth partners...Lynette and Carrie of 'garden girl'. What a pleasure it was to share space with them - and also lynette's 'honey' - what a trooper he was, dealing with 5 women and always with a smile on his face. Someone does have a photo of him taking a quick 5 in the back of lynettes truck.
Unfortunatley, we only have pic's of our space, we didn't really get to wander around until sunday. But we did get to visit with some old friends and made some new. Bari J had the most awesome handbags and came all the way from San Francisco, what a sweatheart! http://barij.typepad.com/my_weblog/. Rebecca of peace within-loved visiting with her and puchased some great t's and sweatshirts http://www.peacewithincda.com/, we've had the previous pleasure of being guests at willow nest with cindy of tarte, she always has such a wonderful space, and is so talented, http://queenoftarte.blogspot.com/, also aunti joy...who is a hoot and half...and who couldn't be doll who's name is aunti joy?! (we hauled a too-cute cabinet back to Yakima for Kims sister in law)http://antiejoy.blogspot.com/, isabel and lisa..what sweeties, we've not seen them for at least a year and you'd think we were old friends! http://www.isabellang.blogspot.com/. New friend 'Diva Deb' was a kick to visit with and full of personality, we might have something special coming along in the future...will keep you posted! http://decodivadebi.blogspot.com/.

The hours are ticking away and we're checking our lists twice, double checking each others lists and triple checking all the last minute details for our road-trip, (especially who is in charge of the adult beverages!). We'll be loading the trailer tonight so we can head out tomorrow night after work for Spokane. I'll have someone else use my camera for photo's - i've decided I SUCK as a photographer!
Visit http://www.thefarmchicks.com/ for all the glorious details!
Wishing a safe trip to everyone. If you're at the show, make sure you stop by and say hi!

We drove through the country-side and saw a sign that advertised 'miniature cows' so we quickly deduced that must be where 'petite sirloin' comes from, and we laughed....until we came across some mini-houses - no kidding! and people lived in them, we could see couches and TV's through their open front doors, and we laughed... Stopped by a yard sale and the following greeted us:
He was no mini, but really wanted his pic taken! We were trying to decide if he was a horse or a mule. Mule!
Hope all had a terrific mothers day!

Now back to mother Nature, when I left the house on Saturday morning to head to a great Country Moving Sale...this is what i found
Enough already! All I want to do is clean out the flower beds and spruce things up a bit for SPRING! Actually we're putting our house up for sale so 'sprucing' is a bit of an understatement! I can't make it shine in my snow boots and parka!
PS: Found a great library table and oak dining table at the Country sale! Come to The Farm Chicks in Spokane WA June 7th & 8th.

This is a picture of a settee that we finished and is at the shop. hard to tell but, is has a gold silk-tone-on-tone stripe fabric. With this piece, we used a gold glaze...turned out pretty cute. Those fabric tacks were a pain!
This is another finished project at the shop. Hard to tell but the fabric is awesome!
WHAT ARE THESE? 3 different sizes, small opening on one end, no screw threads though and a small finial on the other. I love find wierd stuff!
What do You think?
Wow...this picture does not even do any justice to the bright flourescent green of this pew! This is definately a 'before' photo. Will show you the completed project....and it won't be white!
