To say that things have been busy around here is an understatement... Not only am I doing the Barn House show today, I am also leaving - today!- for England, where daughter #3 will attend soccer camp with Manchester United and I will play tourist along with my good buddy Lisa...!!! I ran out of time to take preview pictures of some of the things I have been working on, but I leave you with a picture of a dress form I worked on, I really love how it turned out! See you all in a few days!
P.S. Our England visit is open to our whim's desires, as we decided to go with the flow and make no set destinations... Let us know if you are anywhere between Manchester and London and we may show up!!!!

A few days ago my girls and I took off, along with some girlfriends, to Seattle for an overnight trip...
The purpose? To watch a friendly soccer game between Manchester United and the Seattle Sounders!!!
Isn't it funny that all the girls went and all the guys stayed home...?!
We had so much fun, I don't think our girls will ever forget this trip!
The reason why we were there (and we got to see 7 goals!!)....
Then, shortly upon our return our family was invited for a barbeque at our friends' beautiful country home...
Can you say j-e-a-l-o-u-s...??!!
The setting is gorgeous, the home is magnificent, there are chicken, alpacas, bees, lavender, and an incredible view...
And the sun was out!
The kids favorite of the day...
To finish off our weekend, there was a lot of this...
... And the best part? A championship win!!! What a great way to end an absolutely lovely week!!!

Ever since I laid eyes on this beauty at Cindy's store, I couldn't take it off my head... The fact that the inside was painted pink tugged at my heart even more!! We made a deal, and now this gorgeous piece resides in my bathroom! Don't even ask how we were able to take this heavy monster up the stairs and around to our suite, especially since my husband just had hernia surgery and couldn't help... It was just me and my girls, boy we can do anything, when we have the determination!! The pictures are a bit dark as my bathroom window faces north and this dreary northwest weather is not helping, but I love it so much and it fits perfectly!!!

I cannot tell you how excited I am to, once again, be a part of my sweet friends Joe and Jermonne's amazing summer flea market at the end of this month...!! I am working hard to finish some great pieces, and sewing up a storm! What I truly love about this show is, first of all, the warm and lively hospitality in which we are enrobed, the gorgeous farm setting, the incredibly talented vendors (and great friends!), and the best customers around!!!! There will be live music, great food, and, of course, amazing vintage stuff! I leave you with some photos from last year's show... Will we see you there?
