What a fun time we had!!
VintageFest was so much fun! We saw some old friends and made some new ones. I gotta tell you, I love the intimacy of smaller events. It's important to me to learn names and get to know people. It's always a bit chaotic and I'm sure I fall short at times, but that is my ultimate goal. I love the idea of a group of woman getting together and sharing a passion. This event is still far from what I have in mind for the future, but my goal is still to always keep it on the smaller side. We are planning on doing this twice a year, so look for some info soon on a late Spring/early Summer event!!
In the meantime, here is a quick photo, but Doris has the Inspiration Blog loaded with photos.
Thanks to all who came for the day, came for a class, or came to shop! We hope you had a great time and we look forward to seeing you again!!
On a more serious note, I have been meaning to post about a serious addiction I have been battling - I'm addicted to auctions!! I went to my first one a little over a year ago now (remember my $100 farmhouse table)? Since then, I am looking in the paper, on-line and with local real estate companies every weekend I'm in town. Jared makes fun of me, but he's just as bad if he's with me, I just tend to bid on bigger and heavier things! Many times you end up with "box lots". I usually will see at least one thing I know I want before I bid - sometimes you end with a box of junk and sometimes treasure! I put together this little sampling from my last auction - it didn't look like I had much of anything at first, but I love this little vignette. Enjoy!
