Farm Chicks 2011 Part 3

This is my final post of Farm Chicks as you can see I take way too many photos to get them into just one post. I sometimes feel like I am a child in a candy store. Wow! I will hardly ever pass up and opportunity to take photos of our Red White and Blue. How about you?
There is always something there for the guys as you can see here.
EAT SWEETS what a treat. Every year The Seven Sisters seem to sell out all their sweets that they have prepared fresh for us all. Thank you!
Here are the Seven Sisters responsible for making those yummy treats for us all. They all seem like they are really having fun.
This space Euro-Linens had so many linens and gowns, one of which came home with me.
Pillow ticking is one of my favorites, check out those cute rosettes.
Another photo from Ormolulu's space. I was thinking those feed sacks could make a great center to a quilt.
Love this bird house, how about you? This too was from Ormolulu's space.
These letters were available at Retreat Vintage, Deb has some of the greatest treasures, love her creativity of recycled items. She will be at the Barn House Flea Market July 30th and also has a sale in the fall on Camano Island in Washington.
I wished I had purchased these croquet balls. Darn, one of those after thoughts.
Lisa Souers love her jewelry and her creative ways to display, oh how I wish I had that grain silo, what a great play house for the little ones or whatever I might think of.
Heather Bullard had her building plans for her chicken coop available on her site. Check it out.
Check out these chicken feeders, Celeste from Chaps had this space.
This was a really cool space with all kinds of little finds to create with. Fun Junk is the name here, piles of old stuff, says it all.
I think this Isabella's space, hoping I am correct.

Rene Groom a fellow farm girl from the east side of state of Washington, what a nice surprise to see her there.
What a great welcoming spirit when go to Chaps in Spokane, Washington, the food was perfect, the atmosphere wonderful.
Love to have the chance to go to Chaps when in Spokane, you should check it out when you go next time, you won't be disappointed.
A visit to Chaps for dinner and the topping on the cake was this drink a signature Barn House drink. Yummy!!!!
One of the treasures I got, oh how I wish I were at the beach. Some day soon. I hope you enjoyed the journey as I saw it at Farm Chicks 2011. I will be ready to go again next year. How about you?

Farm Chicks 2011 Part 2

Quilts, my weakness, however I do have a great collection. This space has tables of such great selection of vintage items, nothing priced so you have to ask, which is not my most favorite thing to do. Oh well I just have to get used to it.
More linens, I purchased a great aqua polka dot vintage apron from here for only $3.00, awesome.
A Thing For Roses, Lisa's space, every time I went by she was so busy, yahoo!!! You go girl!!!
Crinolines are still well sought after.
Chicks that's what we are, enjoying the journey!
These jars drew me in, of course I bought one, the lady says they were milk man samples from the Midwest. Oh so cool, so many uses for it.
These letters are so popular these days, as well as the windmills. This space was The Vintage Barn, says it all.
I saw this blooming foxglove and could not resist taking this photo, as mine had not yet bloomed, they are now currently in all their glory in my cottage gardens. This booth has a antique shop in Couer d' Alene, Idaho. Foxglove Antiques, how appropriately named.
There were all sorts of chandeliers in every shape, using all kinds of different recycled mediums. Don't you just love them?
This was from John Bob Cool Junk, such talented treasures they have.
More crystal chandeliers, Love, love them!
Oh how we want to do more of this, lemonade, fresh daisies, just relaxing and enjoying the view!
I love this cupola, I could have so much fun with this. This is from Ormolulu's space.
Don't you just love these vintage seed packets, I could have one of each.
Some great vintage aprons.
Seabold Vintage, Love their look so clean and crisp! How about you? They will be at Barn House Flea Market July 30th.
Another view from Seabold Vintage. Stay tuned for part Three!

Farm Chicks 2011 Part 1

"Believe" that is what Serena from FARM CHICKS did and we are all glad that she believed. June 4th and 5th in Spokane, Washington was the setting for this incredible sale. Roger and I went on this adventure together, combining a business trip for him and fun for me. Well he did have fun to as our son-in-law Jason was playing in an adult soccer tournament in Spokane that weekend. I love going to this sale, not only to see all the wonderful vendors, but all the treasures that could be found in one spot.
One of the lines to get in, I went on Friday a pre-bought my tickets so I could get right in on Saturday morning. The weather was absolutely perfect!
"HOWDY" one big family event. These vendors are so awesome!
"FUN" says it all. Plan ahead to spend the whole day and perhaps the second day.
Farm Chicks memories to take home.

Check this old car out, what a great conversational piece, a lot of photos were taken with people in this setting. Another Funky Junk Jennifer space.
Lots and lots of pillows, every style you can imagine.
Auntie Joy's space, such a a "joy" to see her. She will be at the BARN HOUSE FLEA MARKET IN JULY MARK YOUR CALENDERS. July 30th. Vintage Gathering will be another great flea market to hit on this day. Don't Forget you'll be disappointed if you do.
