Well, I wanted to show you a few of my treasures which I purchased while at the Farm Chicks.
In one of the first booths I came to, I found a beautiful floral picture. It was old and about 12"x 20", a long size. I debated whether to buy it, so I sat it back down to think about it. You must realize I had just gotten inside and this was the first booth I had actually gotten a chance to examine. Soon after that, my #1 man came and told me there was a nice cabinet that I would like. So, we went and took a look at it, he was right, I loved it! It wasn't a bad price either, but I chose to think about it! So I continued shopping. Wrong!!!! I learned from then on, if you like it at the Farm Chicks, buy it! I went back and both the pieces had sold! Boo Hoo! Here is a picture of the cabinet I could have bought, the price tag was in my hand! The gal later told me she could have sold that cabinet over and over.
Another item I bought was a fun book by EllynAnn Geisel, called "The Apron Book". She was there and was signing books. She had three different books. Here's another case where I went back to get her little book called Apronisms and she had sold out. I had intended one for me and one for my sister-in-law, sorry Kathy.
It was fun to meet EllynAnn, I wouldn't normally have my picture taken on purpose, but you know now that I'm in blogland it happens!
The Farm Chicks was a two day event, so we returned on Sunday, a quick trip before heading back to Portland. When I walked in the door I spotted another cabinet, it was perfect, it was old, and it had great storage. I didn't waste my opportunity this time, it was coming home with me!
Remember how I said, in an earlier post how cleaning one room leads to cleaning another. Well, this cabinet is going in my kitchen so yesterday I stripped wallpaper off my kitchen walls. It's something I've wanted to do but it took getting a new piece to do it!
Now choosing paint colors, I would like something from the Martha Stewart line. My "mancub" thinks I should add some color to this house but I just can't make myself go to the bright colors he would pick, sorry "mancub".
