Ruffles and Rust

We had a great time this past weekend at Ruffles and Rust.

We just loaded up the trailer Rainbow and off we went…


  I was delighted to be neighbors with Isabel.  She can put together a booth in a snap, while I am still messing around with mine until the very last minute. She always takes time to walk around before the show and get the most beautiful pictures of everyone’s booth.  I will share a few of her photos, but be sure to see all of them on her blog.

It was nice to see Sarah there from our area.


And of course my favorite Garden Party Girl, Deb


And so much fun to see Amy and Kris

Today’s Country Store

This is just a tip of the iceberg, there were so many incredible booths.

  I am always amazed and awed by the organization and creativity that Timi and her Posse bring to this event.  If you have never been a vendor, you might not appreciate how important all the time consuming details that go into promoting and actually putting on an event of this size and caliber.  While the pictures depict the hard work and creativity of the vendors, it seems the real star should stand up and take a bow.   

Thanks again Timi, it was wonderful!

Remnants of the Past

There have been times when I look forward to something with great anticipation and excitement, I  leave thinking “hmmm, not quite what I was hoping.”  I must say this was certainly not the case with this amazing show.  My expectations were exceeded! It was such an outstanding event, from behind the scenes magic of organizing and advertising, the set up schedule, clear through loading out.

All I can say is, I’m pretty sure I was transported to “The Land of Oz” and Judy Watkins is the most beautiful and talented Wizard of all.


  If you ever get the chance to participate or attend her event, this is something you do not want to miss!   

I wish I had hundreds of pictures to share, but I was too busy taking it all in to think about a camera.  I did have the foresight to snap a couple of my booth.

Looks like Dave is thinking, “how did all this fit together??”


Wait a minute lets put a few more pieces to the puzzle, then it will be a bigger challenge!


It was a short 12 hours later and we were ready!


It was a total pleasure being part of this amazing show.
