So, if you were wondering if it was as fun as it looks like it was, yes...I mean YES!! it really was! Finding cool treasures was great, but meeting the wonderful people who created or discovered them was most definitely the BEST part. This is Farmer Julie, Me and Holly. Julie is such a gem...I loved visiting with her and her Mom. Her Mom had come over from Montana to hang out with her for the weekend. Wahoo for mother~daughter trips!! See all the pretty pottery in the booth behind us....I had a very difficult time picking one out since they were all so pretty!
This is the one I chose. Don't you love the little hobnails and the perfect sagey-aqua green color!! Make sure you make time to visit with Julie here at: farmerjulie.com
This is Me and Deb Kennedy of "Retreat Design" aka Kennedy Design. She was just one of the nicest people EVER! Her booth was amazing. ... Perhaps the decoupaged grand piano - turned bar had something to do with it, ha! We did not buy anything, but she gave US a gift.
All wrapped up in a little box. We put the box in our bag and saved it for a surprise. Holly opened it while we were waiting for our dinner at Marie Calendar's.
It held a precious little handmade nest and dried rose petals. So sweet.....Holly adores it! She is in a nest, moss, mushroom, fairy stage right now and she claimed it as hers, heehe! Thank you Deb! Make sure you visit here: retreatdesign.blogspot.com You will not be disappointed!
This is Me with Coleen of the blog "Coleen's Reflections"
We LOVED her booth! Holly was in mushroom-moss-fairy heaven!! She is a very sweet gal and also sells her creations in her Etsy shop under "Weefae".
One of Holly's favorites
I LOVED these blossoms. Check out her blog....Her photo's are SOoooo much better than mine!
This little fairy cone pocket I HAD to have. It is pure BLISS!
Me and Joy from "Aunties" She is just so much fun....Everyone who walked into her booth felt welcomed, I can promise you that!
Joy had lots of eye candy in her booth and I chose these vintage aqua Bingo cards and a flower wand. She has a blog I am sure you would enjoy...pop over to antiejoy.blogspot.com for a visit!!
Here is the "King of Tarte" and Holly. She had spotted a little mossy nest the day before and Cindy, "The Queen of Tarte", had told her she could have it for $6.00 By Sunday, Holly had decided she really NEEDED it and we went back for it. Thank goodness it was STILL there. I don't know why I love this photo so much, but I do.....Holly is my shy, quiet one away from the house and it was SOoo fun to see her out and about meeting folks!! She was so tickled when "The King" wrapped her nest in paper and put it in a pink bag with a lovely tag hanging by a silk ribbon. (Brilliant Cindy!!) I think she likes the bag as much as the nest. She said she will sit the bag on her dresser to remind her of our trip. Pop back to see said Pink bag on Pink Saturday, heehe!

Holly had me back at Lenette's "Garden Girl" booth MANY times. I imagine by the time FarmChicks was over, Lenette thought we were stockers!
She had so many things for a magical garden! If you are in her area, make sure you stop for a visit..... Garden Girl 25 N. Front St. Shop 2 Yakima, Washington
This is Debi of "Ormolulu". She is very sweet and was even willing to make me a deal on a dreamy pink blender. It was KILLING ME!!
I wanted the blender so bad, but already have three at home. Hubby would have strung me up.....Sadly, he does not understand the need for unique, vintage collectibles, sigh...... You can visit the beautiful Debi here at Ormolulu.blogspot.com
