The Bonnet

If you saw my daughter at the Rural Society or at the Springfield Extravaganza this past weekend, then you saw the baby bonnet that I have been making. I can't tell you how many compliments we received, my friends joked that I should sell them right from my stroller!

But joking aside, I do sell the bonnets through SoBo Style in Columbus, O. and soon I will offer them through my online Etsy.com shop.

The Rural Society Reflection

I was so blessed to have such wonderful friends to help me in this journey to The Rural Society Spring Antique & Garden Sale at Warwick Farms in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. 


My long-time-girlfriend, Bethany Grubb of Antebellum Farmhouse, was so helpful for getting me into the show, I can't thank her enough.  Her booth was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!  I swear I could have lived in the basement of that old barn with her furnishings and decor!  Perfection!


My newest girlfriend, Ginny Sanders, was so nice to spend ALL DAY with me on Friday tending the booth and my 9-month old daughter.  She's a lifesaver! Thank you, Ginny!


My newest guyfriend, Nathan Rotter, loaded his truck and trekked all the way up to Mt. Vernon with me to set up on Thursday.  He was so helpful in deciding how to arrange the booth, I couldn't have done it without him in the short hour-and-a-half window we had to get it done.  A big THANK YOU, Nathan!


Thank you Page Price and Pat Warthen and the rest of the RS staff for all your hospitality.  It's an amazing event . . . so organized, well communicated, and promoted.  I was honored to be a part of it.  Thank you so much!


And last, but not least, a huge thank you to all the folks who came out to support this event, especially the friends I have made along the way:  Lori, Lilly, Pat, Maggie, Eva, Natalie, Marin, Lisa, Janelle, and Lora.


Here are a few photos taken with my iPhone . . .


My daughter, Greta.  I loved having her with me at the show.  I was a little worried that she may not make it through the day, but she was a trooper and I couldn't have been happier that she was a part of it all.

All these cute vintage child's dishware was a gift from my booth neighbor, Janet Clayton of Open Market Style.  Greta and I are going to have many tea parties with these.  Thanks Janet!

Thanks Bethany, for this lovely tea pot!  It is exactly what I have been looking for!  You're the best!

Blogging App

Not long ago my husband presented me an iPhone...(all the other kids had one) and because I had convinced him that it would be most valuable at the shows for running credit card sales...yes, there is an app for that, too. But in tooling around with this gadget I have discovered that Blogger has an app for what else? Blogging. Now, I'm not much for cranking up the ol' laptop and trying to come up with something clever to say, but I am into photography. I am going to consider my blog more of a photo journal then anything else. So here we go...my first post on my handy-dandy iPhone. Now let's see how long it takes me to figure out how to post pictures from this app. By the way, I love Instagram (yep, yet another app), so follow me there, too.
