Just Call Me Dorothy

"Dorothy" as in The Wizard of Oz... there is no place like home!!
I am glad to be home, actually I slept at home the last 4 nights but I was gone from early in the morning to way past bedtime!! I am always so excited to do a show and can hardly wait for the day! When it is over I feel like, whew!! I am glad that is over and I don't have to do that everyday!!

This is what I saw when I came to my booth on Friday morning... Much work to be done, but it is nice to be able to put the big pieces in place on Thursday, even if it means an extra trip!

Here are Isabel and Lisa getting organized. They look fresh and happy!!
Miss Cindy, she also looks fresh and happy, but she's really am I going to fit all of this into a 10x10 foot spot??
Lucky for her many of her treasures went to new homes before they had to be put away!! Now it is up to the new owner to worry about placement!!

This is Shannon, she and her mom Maryann are often with us when we do shows!

Here are a few shots of our booths after some rearranging.
Cindy working on her's and the corner of Maryann and Shannon's

Time for the little break, we promised ourselves when the work was done! If you look close you will notice the clothes we are wearing are different, this photo is 2 days later!! Takes awhile to get the work done!
Fortunately there was an empty booth across from us, it became our break room/holding room. Don't you think that flamingo jacket would look perfect on Cindy??
I sold lots of little items Saturday, so Sunday morning I fixed this lamp to take in, I glued lace and tule on an old shade I had, then added flowers from a vintage hat. I would have kept it but, truthfully I was too tired to figure out which lamp I would trade it for in the house... Naturally it sold first thing, so I suppose it is the new owners problem to worry about placement!! (Wonder if she would like to trade for one I have in the house??)
Now on to new projects!! This Saturday is the 3 Friends Sale!! Oh me, oh my, do I have lots to do to get ready for that! I will make a list and stay on task. I will make a list and stay on task. I will make a list and stay on task. I will make a list and stay on task. I will make a list and stay on task. I will make a list and stay on task...
