A Vintage Gathering: THE BEST

Of all the times for my camera to fail!!!

I am hoping someone will send me pictures
to share with you.

This sale was the best by far.  We had the
most wonderful vendors and we all had
a very good sale.  We were busier than ever
and people came from far and wide to
visit us.  We are so grateful for our superior
customers.  The weather was perfect, too!

I met two bloggers that I have followed for
a long time. First I met Liz from
Seabold Vintage Market.  Liz was doing the
Barn House show up the road and came by
on Fri. with her husband and their sweet
daughter Hattie.  We have been trying to
meet up for a few years and this was a
wonderful surprise.  It is like seeing
an old friend you haven't seen in a long
time.  Wish we had more time to visit!!

Second was Teresa from Meadowbrook Farm.
She is from Montana and was doing a sweep
through the northwest that included coming to
A Vintage Gathering.  Again, it was like seeing
an old friend. And again, I wish we had more
time to visit!

I learned that these two women are as
wonderful as their blogs make them seem.  My sale
was the best I've ever had money wise, but
the real treasure was meeting these two and seeing
so many other friends and customers.

This was the last show I will do. There, I've
told the world!  My mind can handle most
of it but my body can't.  Today I feel sore and
tired and exhausted.  Doing these shows takes
hours of work and effort so please always
be kind to the vendors you see.  They have
put alot into the show.

I will post pictures (hopefully) later.  Thank you
to everyone who came to see me and all the
other vendors who shared in the wonderful
experience.  All of you made this special!!

We came home from vacation and
found our yard had exploded with blooms.

The hydrangea has never had so many

So pretty...

These were just leaves when
we left.


Our tree in bloom (really a

Grasses and ferns are happy.

We have a huge yard and
not all of it has been  "done". These blooms
are dandelions and a volunteer tree.

This lovely orchid is in the sun room.

And it smells great!
